This was everything I needed it to be and more. I stayed a week but if I could stay a month I would. My mind body and soul feel nourished. The environment, the people, the classes, the treatments, and of course the food, every bit is with high vibration and the intention of love and healing. I will be back!

Property's Favourite Review
Another amazing trip to my favorite place on earth! Traveling is my passion and I never go anywhere twice bc the world is too big to repeat… however this was my third trip and I’m already trying to book my fourth 🤣 HDS is a place where you can truly recharge and reset… this trip was short (only 5 days) but I made the most of my time in paradise. All my treatments exceeded all expectations, the food was delicious, the staff was exceptional and as always the guests were a joy. If you are on the fence about coming, do yourself the favor of letting go and experiencing this magical place. I truly can’t imagine anyone not having an amazing experience! HDS this is not goodbye just see you soon! Thank you for always making me feel my best and making me see the importance of taking care of myself. 💙💙💙

This oasis in the heart of the jungle revived my soul. I have no words to describe just how much I got out of this trip. Hacienda Del Sol is magic! This was my third time here… each time I learn new things about myself and leave stronger and wiser. I will be back 😉

I just completed the juice cleanse for the third time and I am blown away by the experience. I feel reborn :) The staff and food and spa are next level and this is a second home for me. I plan to come back every single year and couldn’t recommend this place more. I have personally sent many of my friends to come try the cleanse for themselves.

This is my second time to Hacienda to participate in the juice cleanse and liver cleanse with the yoga. I like that it’s remote, the food is fresh and clean, it’s well regimented, internet is fast, I was able to do zoom calls from my casita. The pools is a natural pool. Neat walks near by. Also it’s neutral, come as you are all are accepted. Friendly, and helpful staff. It’s the jungle so one must be prepared to do the jungle, bugs are part of the deal. I love how I feel when I’m there. Highly recommend. Amazing area also. Calm and quiet and authentic.

This is my second visit to Hacienda del Sol. As last time it is a great place to rest from the busy everyday lifestyle we all tend to have I love the fresh farm to table raw food menu, their daily yoga and daily trips to the beach I highly recommend any of their detox plans. And their amenities. The beaches are beautiful and clean and not overly populated

I had a wonderful week at HDS earlier this month. It was exactly what I needed it to be, peaceful, beautiful, and healthy in all ways. It’s small, no distractions, no bar, not a bunch of people everywhere. You pretty much meet all the other guests and know each other and the staff by name. I loved that. It’s beautiful, surrounded by the beautiful jungle and the grounds are lovely. It’s just a really great place, with great atmosphere and staff with great energy.; so helpful and their friendliness felt genuine and I appreciated that. The cabins are cute, mine was a bit on the small side, but I adjusted and was just fine. I think larger cabins are probably given to guests staying more than one week. If you need luxurious accommodations and can’t be happy anywhere else this may not be your place, but if you can handle cute, kinda rustic, minimalist simplicity go ahead and make your reservation, you won’t regret it. I have to mention bugs. It’s the jungle so be prepared. I’m afraid of bugs, but I put my big girl pants on and handled it. Management will come and spray your room with eco-friendly bug spray whenever you request it and it helps. I feel I got lucky, nothing too terrifying got inside my room. When I first arrived I thought I’d be too afraid to venture out onto my patio and get into the hammock, but I quickly overcame my fear and the hammock became my favorite place. On my first or second morning there howler monkeys were in the trees very near my patio, I was able to see a few of them and heard them loud and clear. I felt so lucky to have that experience. The food was some of the healthiest most delicious food I’ve ever experienced. I did the cleanse detox program so I didn’t get to eat much of it, but what I did have was quite delicious. I believe the serve nothing with sugar or dairy products, I’m not 100% certain of that, but I think so. Doing yoga outside looking into the beauty of nature was amazing. My final day there instead of yoga we danced, a kinda of spiritual, therapeutic, healing, emotion filled, freedom dance led by Julia. It was a truly incredible experience. I danced and laughed and cried. Following the dance I had a delicious breakfast of savory crepes and a wonderful massage from Birdie in the open air casita on a little hill and heard howler monkeys during my session. Then I was off to the airport. My final day was the icing on the cake of a beautiful week spent at HDS. If you’re on the fence about going get off the fence and go. I’m so glad I did. It was exactly what I needed and I feel so very thankful and blessed that I had the privilege of participating in such an experience.

I am so grateful to have found the Hacienda. It was exactly what I needed to reset my relationship with food. I came away a little thinner but with knowledge from the coaches about food, my body, befriending my appetite… and proof that it works. And don’t get me started on the bodyworkers there…I had mind blowing massages there (the Detox was my favorite). They did not find a way to change my attitude towards exercising; I still hate it. And by the end of 3 weeks I was even less freaked out by the critters camped outside on my mosquito netting (sure there would have been less without the light from my iPad). 😛 It’s totally worth going!

Wonderful stay at Hacienda del Sol. The place is really designed for total relaxation and dedicated to helping guests live healthier lives. The small number of guests creates a community feel. Everyone sits around a large table or two at mealtimes and talks. The other guests begin to feel like friends. The staff are excellent - patient and caring. The environment is beautiful and really magical - nestled in the jungle, surrounded by nature. I did the juice cleanse and highly recommend it. It’s tough - but worth it. The program is very professional and expertly facilitated. Your body receives all the nutrients you need to undergo a health transformation. In just a week, I’ve been able to kick some bad health habits developed during the pandemic. I feel rejuvenated and have much more energy. I also experienced several wellness services (massage, cranio-sacral therapy) and they were all excellent. Also, the daily beach shuttles for sunset were unforgettable. If you’re considering investing in your health and wellness, don’t hesitate to book a stay at the Hacienda!

It has taken me almost a week since I left the center before I could even write this review as it was perfect. Ok…maybe I should say perfect for ME. My experience was one of ease, love and understanding from staff to the other guests. Always felt included and understood. I was also given space to make the best decisions for me and my body. It was the perfect dose of self care, relaxation and lush natural scenery with the most delicious food. I can go on and on and on but it was all so good that some nights I would have food envy. Luckily all the guests were super chummy so usually like grade school you can make a trade OR just order another. The ladies in the kitchen kept us all well fed. The dining area is beautiful and a nice place to just lounge and journal while sipping a smoothie. Heaven! Speaking of …the yoga is life changing …I did it every day I was there and within day 6 I was able to do a full squat. My knees are NOT like Megan’s …yet. Lol . The front desk staff was super helpful from the moment I expressed interest to when I messaged them at the airport heading HOME what is the coffee and rum I should pick up in duty free for gifts…and trust I tried both and they were phenomenal as well. These place can’t help but win….now back to them…the yoga instructor king abs gentle, we went on a turtle excursion…amazing. Granted again the guest were a dream. Have I even mentioned the massage?!??! OMG the rebounding massage with Marisha (I think) changed my life and body then I had another one (Detox) with Anisa. These are tiny women whose hands should be declared a legal weapon as the were deadly to my back knots. I have slept super peaceful since then. Speaking of sleep …the beds are super soft and lush. I had a room with an outdoor bathroom and shower and it was stunning. Seriously I know I am leaving out the amazing pool, great housekeepers and Heaven forbid I forget about me getting a rash and the lovely Mary (from front desk ) brought me some Aloe (which worked wonders) without me even asking. Like they are just super thoughtful and on top Of their game. And if you think it’s just the staff that keeps it together, know that the charming and super kind host and owner Juan Carlos is always near in his office or on the grounds. I can’t not say anything other than he is the most gracious , kind and reasonable owner. Seriously they have found a client for me for life as everytime I would go to Costa Rica I would find a way to spend a t least a week here it really is life changing.
