AmaTierra was an incredible experience I will never forget. The owners and staff were very attentive and friendly. The rooms were clean. The food was excellent. I was there to host a retreat and I will definitely be back to host another one very soon. I loved the property. The yoga pavilion was my favorite - the views were amazing.

It could not have been more everything I wanted/needed. I had real peace and quiet in a comfortable and beautiful setting. If you are looking for a "fancy" resort, look elsewhere. If you are looking for rejuvenation of your heart, mind and soul, do it.

I went to Amatierra in search of a meditative space to detox from a two-year period of non-stop stress and bad eating. Having never been to Costa Rica, all I knew was I didn't want frills or partying, just peace and beauty with access to bodywork and simple, healthy food. I got exactly that! Bob and Jill and their elegant...

In seeking a space of positive restoration for myself and my mother, Pamela Templin, I looked for a smaller, quieter wellness experience which would also be eco-sensitive. What I found at AmaTierra absolutely met these needs but provided my mom and I both so much more. I was delighted by the privacy and peacefulness of our clean and comfortable room...

This is the Experience of a Lifetime - one of those "magical" places so rare in our world today - where pure Nature embraces you with unforgettable Beauty and Life Spirit.

If you are looking for a place to just be & relax... go here. They are trying to be a wellness resort but, there are better ones around for the money. Rooms are clean but, bathroom & other areas of the property need some TLC. Found the road noise along with airplanes from airport a pain... not relaxing.... take ear...

I got to this hotel by chance after loosing my way. What a wonderful surprise. I joined their yoga class and the meditation. The food was healthy and very tasty. Both owners are extremely nice and i enjoyed the conversations with them. The place is beautiful and relaxing.
