The food at Amatierra was five star! The staff and owners are amazing people. Bob and Jill, the owners are personable and have been there 11 years. I went with a friend for some r&r. We enjoyed yoga, meditation, and chose some off-property excursions whereas transportation was arranged. We visited Carrera National Park where we were privileged to have Victor...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 February 2017

I picked this place because of the yoga and wellness aspect and it really turned out to be a fantastic vacation and retreat. The owners, Bob and Jill, are American and that made it simple to communicate. Bob and I spoke on the phone beforehand and he helped me pick out a package, which was a 7-day all inclusive trip...

My wife and I have traveled the world together and we thought we had experienced everything. Well, that changed when we got to Ama Tierra. The experience was one that can only be described by actually being there. People think they understand harmony. I thought I understood harmony, but I didn't, not until this vacation. I have become one with...

We so enjoyed your group that came here for a 5 Night Retreat. I was amazed that most people did not know each other and left as really good friends. That is what seemingly makes people want to come here especially as single travelers. We look forward to many more groups that will be coming from the same company that...

My husband and I truly enjoyed this wonderful property, people, activities etc... The organic food they have prepared were all wonderful!!!! We wish we could eat like that all the time! The nature around the property was just gorgeous, and we woke up every morning with the birds and nature sounds. Very soothing and relaxing. Yoga, meditation, and massage were...

My mother and I shared a very special, life changing stay at Amatierra. We spent our 7 day, 6 night trip with a group of wonderful ladies of all ages and stories. This wellness centre is unlike any other. The energy on the property, the beautiful trees and surrounding wildlife was unbelievable. We spotted toucans, iguanas, scarlet macaws... you name...

I was hoping to add a day excursion to zip line and by the second day was happy and content with exactly what I purchased. Jill and Bob were gracious, knowledgeable and attentive hosts.

I was very fortunate to be able to spend 8 days at AmaTierra over the New Years holidays as a single traveller.

Wonderful place to stay leading my first yoga retreat in CR. Rooms are comfy tho some modern upgrade could enhance the experience. Bob, Jill & Staff are wonderful and always ready to make your stay wonderful. I love the meals, but if you are a meat eater, pls realize this is a vegetarian, organic retreat center.

We're so appreciative of yoga teachers bringing groups to AmaTierra and we're glad it was a good experience for this group leader. We do want to say that while it is true we don't serve red meat here we do serve fresh fish and organic chicken along with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, many grown on the property. It...

My girl friend and I wanted a relaxing yoga retreat and Bob made that happen for us when I reached out to him. His quick detailed responses made it brainless for us. I literally booked my flights and made my deposit and forgot about the trip until it happened. Amatierra is a true nature's gem hidden up on the mountains...

Bob & Jill, the owners of Amatierra, are truly gems. They’re friendly, engaging, and knowledgable not only about Costa Rica but also the healing arts and music. (Ask Bob about the 60’s!). We felt very welcomed from the moment we arrived until we (sadly) had to leave. They have a down-to-earth generosity and warmth which added to our pleasurable experience....
