Hacienda del Sol and all their staff are really amazing. Had a retreat in June and they created the perfect location. With an ozone pool, absolutely delicious vegetarian food, and a beautiful yoga shala. Options for rooms with fans and options for A/C. Also there are many types of treatments possible. Thanks for being so kind and professional.

I am 57 years young, and this past week I had the good fortune to spend an amazing at 7 days at Hacienda del Sol. I will never forget this transformative experience, and am grateful to the kind, helpful, talented staff at this wellness center. The food was amazing, and we all took pictures of the beautiful meals (except the times I forgot because I was immediately digging into the delicious, creative dishes!). The property was perfect - from the entry to the open-air dining room to the yoga shala - and most especially to the lovely guest rooms. The yoga classes were invigorating, balanced by the ulitmate relaxation spots - the swimming pool and the treatment rooms! I enjoyed two treatments - a Rebalancing Massage (deep tissue) and Therapeutic Flights (!!!), the latter combining acro yoga elements and Thai Massage in a truly unforgettable, one-of-a-kind experience that I would LOVE to repeat again, preferably as soon as possible! (Vera, the therapist, was a beautiful, kind soul and I connected with her easily in this unbelievable treatment in which you must be willing to trust the therapist and be okay with being hoisted skillfully into the air). Grateful to have experienced the magic of Hacienda del Sol and would love to return to this spectacular place full of beauty, nature (the Howler Monkeys and beautiful vegetation being just two of the highlights), nourishing healthy food and healing experiences. Thank you to Samantha, JJ, and all the staff... Until next time...

Simply stated, I had an amazing month-long stay. I was looking to lighten up both figuratively and literally and could not be happier with the results. I started with a 7-day juice cleanse which was just what I needed to jump start my fitness regimen after this long year (I had never done one before and was surprised that I wasn't hungry all the time and still able to do the twice daily yoga classes). I then moved onto their primal fitness program which uses your body's own weight for both strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. This was particularly exciting as I have been home for two weeks and am using the skills from the program in my apartment for online workouts. Complimenting this was the incredible food. While I'm definitely more of a carnivore, I was really impressed with how fresh and flavorful the vegan options were and frequently chose them over the keto options (which were also delicious, but I want to incorporate more plant-based eating going forward). Vibrant and lush, the retreat is set in the jungle which is immensely tranquil. The staff were incredibly helpful and the late afternoon sunset beach trips were beautiful way to cap the day. If you are looking for a truly relaxing and healthy vacation, come here.

I was not sure what to expect when I joined a yoga retreat and heard jungle, wellness, and farm to table food, but I was impressed with all three. HDS is this very secluded, extremely quiet, yet modern facility that takes you completely out of your daily grind. I have been to wellness programs before, but with HDS, you can have excursions and other activities, and when you return, it’s about the most serene place you will find. Beautiful landscape, pool, and tucked away places that encourage meditation and calm. The food was equally impressive. Grown mostly on property, they have honed a very nice selection of menus that are extremely healthy and vegetarian (full vegan if desired) with nice flavor and variety. Really excellent and impressive food unlike I’ve had elsewhere. HDS gives you the full off the grid experience if you want or if like me, I still appreciate air conditioning and the internet. Recommended for anyone looking to get fully away. My seven days felt like a month.
