San Ramon, Costa Rica

It's been an excellent stay. We came here for a YOGA retreat with instructor Juliana Artiñano, and it has been wonderful. For Healthy food lovers, great views, beach and holistic treatments, this is the place to visit.

I stayed at Blue Spirit for 7 days and can honestly say I did not want to leave. Absolutely gorgeous resort with breathtaking views and yoga studios, delicious fresh food, serene infinity pool and the friendliest staff I’ve ever met. From the moment I stepped onto the resort I was always greeted with a warm smile and hello from everyone...

My daughter and I went on a yoga retreat at this resort. What a beautiful venue! Right on the Pacific Ocean! We stayed in an Eco cottage...no AC, but a fan and mosquito net were provided. The grounds are lush and well-maintained; the practice areas are well-equipped and meticulously kept. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The menu is vegetarian,...

Stayed a week at this beautiful property while attending a yoga retreat. It was very relaxing and I certainly felt better/stronger in every way at the end of the week. The food was tasty and healthy and smoothies (pay extra for) were delicious. The beach is beautiful but has no beach chairs or any ability/source to rent/borrow a chair to...

This yoga retreat center is very large and clearly organized for big groups. The grounds are beautiful, as well as the practice spaces, SkyMind Hall in particular. Although we were a group of 22, there was another group much larger than us, so they seemed to get the preferred times for classes. All meals are buffet and the common areas...

My week spent at Blue Spirit was above and beyond what I expected. The setting is beautiful, the staff were wonderful in every way and the food was exceptional. The chef prepared vegetarian cuisine that was fresh and exciting every day. My Hermitage Room in the main building was perfectly clean and very comfortable. My week long "Holistic Detox" was...

An amazing place, on a hillside, by the ocean. Very luxurious and extraordinarily designed and developed. Tranquil, beautiful, and clean. I had to change rooms because of an invasion of bees, and (obviously) wasn't allowed to go in and re-pack everything myself. The young man who moved my belongings did a spectacular job of packing and unpacking everything, setting up...

So, this is a great place, but I do think much of how you relate to the place will depend on your group retreat. We had the entire place, so there was a great sense of community built. I wonder if it would be the same way with multiple smaller retreats running concurrently. My retreat was truly phenomenal, and for...
