At Pranamar I found that the continuity and consistency of the care for their guests was IMPECCABLE... and the grounds well, how does one describe heaven ? I stayed in Feb 2013 and witnessed hospitality at its best. When the owners are not in sight, and that is rare, there was no shift in the excellence of care and concern...

Dear Cathy, Well my friend, the minute I met you I knew I met another soul mate! Wow, your energy and love and enthusiasm is exciting...and I thank you with all my heart for your beautiful Trip Advisor letter. Honestly, sometimes I feel like the "lone ranger" out here...and then the voices of people like you help me remember that...

It was really hard to write this review for two reasons: 1 - like many new yorkers, I fear that when my favorite secret piece of heaven gets discovered, then it will become too overbooked and crowded for me to still get in. 2- there are just so many things I want to say, I know I will miss something!...

We recently returned from week-long yoga and surfing vacation at Pranamar Resort.

Booked a 7 night yoga package at Pranamar for February 2013; second trip to Costa Rica, such a beautiful country and great place to practice yoga.
