“Excellent vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The guys That work for me basically forced me on a vacation. They found this place randomly online with my only qualifications being surfing and yoga. I really had no expectations and Horizons blew me away. Daily yoga instruction was great, everything in the cafe is excellent, and the grounds of the hotel are very picturesque. It sits just far enough off of the main road to avoid all the noise. Yoav and Gali set me up with Amit from Del Sol surf school and he was great. Definitely the highlight of my trip. I did the surf and yoga package so all of my dinners were planned every night as well. Ate at a different restaurant every night and they were all excellent. Thanks guys,I will definitely be back.

I stayed here during my Costa Rica engagement trip and had such a relaxing time. We did yoga in the early mornings, and relaxed at the pool in the evenings. It was walking distance to the beach, where we took some surf lessons. It is a small and quite town, but a great place to relax, unwind and read a good book in the hammock. The views were amazing and the hosts were very pleasant.

Room Tip: Get one of the independent cabins. They have a kitchenette, so you can enjoy a nice home cooked meal...

Im in love with this place!

I was traveling sola and chose Horizon for it´s reputation as a yoga center.

This is an amazing place period. The yoga, the food, the rooms, the other guests, the views and garden.

For sure will be back!

Me and wife found our self staying at Horizon last August.
It was a last minute, very well deserved trip, after a hell of a year.
We pick Horizon after exploring the reviews and we thank god we did!
This is a beautiful ocean view pearl of a land, so close to everything town has to offer but yet so away and peaceful .
The warm welcome we received from Gali (one of the owners) made us feel like returning old friends. The cabin we stayed in was so clean, so beautifully designed, so smartly equipped, with so much attention to esthetics. We thought we won the lottery! And the ocean view! Just to hear the waves breaking on and on and look at the full moon over the pacific at night while swinging in the hummock – pure relaxation and beauty.
The food in their restaurant was amazing, with their own gardens of herbs and fruit trees! Fresh, organic food. Amazing presentation!
We really felt these people mission in life is just to make us happy!

My wife went to yoga here. They run daily classes (Pilates as well) and returned every time with shinny eyes!
This is a place is full of love. You can feel it in every little detail and the smiles of the people around you. It is managed by professionals, who give you the warm feeling you are family . . .
Thanks for everything, Gali and Joav! You are the best!

Room Tip: We stayed in an ocean view cabin. It was perfect for us. Their villas look amazing as well.

Having traveled to many places near and far, Horizon is just the best. Yoav and Gali have created a very, very special place. From the location that they have selected for Horizon, to every plant and stone that they have built to create Horizon, to the graciousness with which they greet you and make you feel welcome is unsurpassed. As a single female traveler, I could not have felt safer. Morning yoga with Yoav or Gali is very special. In addition, there are opportunities to surf, horseback ride, walk the beach, massage...Whatever you want to do, They just makes it happen effortlessly. I changed plans a number of times, and it was just made to happen. Oh, and did I mention the food....I am am currently going through withdrawal from their incredible food. Trying to figure out how soon I can return to just the best ever!!!

Room Tip: ASk for an ocean view room

We loved our stay at Horizon. We have never written a review for Trip Advisor before but in this case we feel it's worth it. We searched Costa Rican websites high and low and were having problems finding something beautiful for our family of four that was also affordable, but this fit the bill. It's much more lovely than we had anticipated from the Horizon website. There is a strong aesthetic with care and thought lavished throughout the grounds. We stayed in the oceanside cabin with 2 rooms and a kitchen, so although the rooms are small by American standards we were very comfortable. There were stunning views from all the rooms, and we especially enjoyed hanging out in the hammocks on the porches. With few other guests there during August, it was quiet and peaceful - they even ran the yoga class just for our two daughters. We appreciated the powerful air conditioners in the bedrooms as the heat and humidity were sweltering at that time of the year. The kitchen was beautifully designed with everything needed to prepare your own meals if we chose. The food at the bar was wonderfully fresh, although we usually went out to dinner for larger meals. Using their laundry service was expensive but necessary if you want anything to dry - or you could get it done in town probably for less. We can't wait to go back!
