My wife and I stayed at Asclepios for four nights in February 2017. We lucked out with gorgeous, warm days and cool nights for the entire trip. Charmed by the area's natural beauty, and impressed by the amazing staff's efforts, we had a fantastic experience at this wonderful spa. After a short (10 min) drive from the airport, we had...

I decided that I wanted to go on a wellness retreat - something to feed and heal my mind and body. I started doing research on the world's best retreats and came across Asclepios. I ended up choosing it because of the range of treatments offered. I came here and did the one week Anti-Sress program and simply could not...

From the reviews here, it's clear that visitors have had mixed experiences at Asclepios — for us, this was a perfect overnight escape. Asclepios was quiet and relaxing. As others have said: no alcohol, no smoking, ambient new-age music piped throughout the property, limited wifi, and very very quiet. We enjoyed the low-key and minimal staff; we did not find...

I was here two years ago as a first night for my honeymon, and it was excellent, I think we were the only guests but we enjoyed overall, room was very confy, views are to die for and food/service at the restaurant was great as well. Perhaps a little bit expensive but I guess it is worthy for a special...

Half day retreat with overnight stay. I arrived at 3pm and spent the night at Asclepios. If you are visiting Costa Rica and have a day or half day to spend and want to relax, Asclepios will be a great way to refresh and recharge. Many different spa treatments and massages are available.

I recently stayed at Asclepios for three nights. If you're looking for a lively nightlife or hotel with an active bar scene, this is not the place for you. There is not wifi onsite (with the exception of the lounge), nor are there T.V.s in the rooms...or coffee on site. The retreat is, however, quiet and peaceful and an incredible...

From San Jose you get there in about 40-45 minutes ( Uber available) or you can just ask the hotel to arrange a taxi or a car for you. The place is really beautiful and completely silent : at some point it seemed like I was the only one on the property. The sound of the water and the birds...

We had a lovely time during our stay at Asclepios Wellness & Healing Retreat. The location is convenient- it is close to the San Jose airport (approximately 20 minutes in our rental car).

I will start with the positive aspects about this place. The Spa and its services are totally recommended as you feel you are in heaven with the massage and at the Spa. The concept of the hotel, based on Greek mythology, makes of the place a unique one (at least in Costa Rica) in which the rooms are nicely kept...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Asclepios (honoring the Greek God of Health) is located in Alajuela, Costa Rica and offers its guests 12 rooms which evoke the most important medical traditions of the world, together with a regulated ionized swimming pool, amphitheatre, fitness center, exercise pavilion, sauna, hammam, nature paths, 6 treatment lodges, a relaxation room and a Conference room.We are located on the edge of a tropical forest with views of the surrounding sugar cane and coffee plantations, mountains and volcanoes.We work with a team of selected holistic practitioners and highly skilled spa therapists. We have put together a great understanding and passion for physical, emotional and spiritual health resulting in great wellbeing.Asclepios also seeks to educate in environmental appreciation and conservation. It is built in siding and brick, two sustainable materials. We use thermal solar collectors and take advantage of natural ventilation and natural lighting. Wild life has been preserved and our primary and secondary forests have been untouched. Our quest is to restore the person’s whole being to its natural state of balance, by correcting such diverse factors as improper diet, sedentary lifestyle, lack of a correct oxygenation, negative thought patterns and their emotional impact, and the lack of rest or restorative sleep, among others.We do this by five Special Wellness Programs that include Detoxification and Revitalization Programs, Stress and Weight Management and the Spa Experience Program.A la carte: Naturopathy, Meditation, Pranayamas, Acupuntura, Floral Therapy, Vichy and Scottish Showers; Kneipp, Shiatsu, Shirodhara, Yoga, Reiki, Tai chi…And, as health also includes your palate: bioenergetic gastronomy, where you can rediscover the original flavors of vegetables, fruits and fish. ... more   less
