It’s hard to write an appropriate review about my experience because I truly don’t think any words could fully describe how much I love Hacienda Del Sol. I read several reviews leading up to my trip saying it was life changing and couldn’t image any vacation changing my life...well I was wrong! I have two incredible little boys but as all mothers know when you have young children it becomes very difficult to take time for yourself. This was the first time I had been away from my kids for more than 1 night. I was nervous I would want to come home early or it wouldn’t be worth being away from them for 2 weeks. However, with a push from my husband I ended up at Hacienda Del Sol. My only regret being I hadn’t done this sooner. I arrived late in the evening and was welcomed with the warmest greetings from JJ. A very kind gentleman who never stops smiling. JJ helped me book all my treatments and excursions. Anything I wanted or needed he always went above and beyond to make it happen. I did the primal fitness and keto retreat. I wanted to learn more about the Keto lifestyle and I really enjoy working out so Ramiro said I could combine the two. It was a perfect mix of making some minor adjustments to my diet and seeing amazing results. The primal fitness classes were fun and challenging. I booked a room with AC and an indoor bathroom, however there are a couple different options depending on your preferences. My room was beautiful. I had a large shower overlooking the jungle and a beautiful veranda with a hammock that I used daily to do devotionals. I also really enjoyed reading by the pool. It had been years since I read a book not focused on sleep for infants or breastfeeding! It was so nice to just read again! I read 5 books and have even read one since I got home! It’s something I promised myself I would keep up at home. Now Hacienda Del Sol is beautiful with the most amazing food but what truly makes it so special is the people you are surrounded by... that includes the guests. Ramerio and Crystal - They are the owners and both are truly kind people. I had 5 one on one sessions with Ramerio to learn more about living a Keto lifestyle. He is very passionate and knowledgeable. He is also a lot of fun and very kind. I highly recommend doing any type of one on one session with him, you will not regret it! The instructors - I had classes with Julia, Vera, Garnet and Yatti. Two yoga classes are offered Monday - Saturday. I also had 9 primal fitness classes and two breath work classes. Let me tell you... I was NOT looking forward to all the yoga and even less excited about the breath work... however I wanted to come and experience new things so I decided before I came what do I have to lose by trying new things. The answer is nothing and I gained so much more than I could have expected. Most my classes were with Julia. I can’t really explain Julia. She’s kind of a magnetic force. She has a very gentle smile and had an ability to make you feel comfortable. I suck at yoga. I’m not flexible and I realized while working with her I spend a lot of my day holding my breath. She taught me how to breath at 32 years old. She also helped me enjoy the calmness of yoga. Vera is also a truly lovely person! Always smiling. You can tell she truly has a passion for her job and makes you feel comfortable. She’s an absolute pleasure to be around. I only had 1 class with Garnet but he was also very kind, knowledgeable and his class had a different flare to it. Yatti did the breath work classes. Although I didn’t want to go to them, I went to the first one and loved it! It was the first time I’ve ever actually been able to meditate. Yatti is upbeat, fun and always greets you with a smile. They all four made someone who hated yoga signup for yoga classes! Not bc they are pushy but bc they are accepting and made me enjoy something I thought I hated. Hacienda Del Sol offers a variety of treatments. I came with a very open mind and wanted to try things I wouldn’t normally do at home. My first treatment was a rebalancing treatment with Julia. It was an amazing experience mentally but also great physically. I have horrible posture from years of breastfeeding and Julia helped me stand a little taller. It was a great first treatment. Next I did the Cranial-sacral with Menlha. I would come back just to do this again with her. I had zero expectations but it blew me away. I have never felt so at peace or calm in all my life. I also felt that it helped me let go of some negative energy from my childhood that I have been carrying around. It was such a great experience I did another one on my last full day. Menlha is such a deeply kind person. She’s amazing at what she does and I can’t wait to come back to do another session with her. Mascha was next with my deep tissue massage followed by a body scrub. The massage was perfect and the body scrub was amazing. When the scrub was finished you take a shower in the jungle. It’s a beautiful outdoor shower. It made me feel so connected to the outdoors and aware of all the beauty around me. I also did an Astrology session with Mascha. It was something I wanted to do but kept talking myself out of. However after meeting Mascha I knew I wanted to try it. She is so kind, when she smiles you can see the kindness in her eyes. She’s warm and I felt I could have spoken with her for hours. I can’t forget to mention JJ, Sam and Juan Carlos who are the office staff who go above and beyond to make your requests a reality. They do everything with kindness and smile! Sam is funny, smart and you always have a good time with her! She took myself and another guest on a walk to a beautiful river with Vera. We just all 4 chatted and laughed. Juan Carlos also cooked us the most amazing Lobster and Squid lunch! It was so thoughtful of him to take the time out of his day to make us that special meal! Lastly, all the ladies in the kitchen.... the food was healthy, delicious and so fresh. Many vegetables are grown on site and the chicken and fish are sourced locally. There wasn’t one meal I did not like. Many I love and have already made since being home. I guess with life being so busy I stopped making time to pour into my cup. These strangers who now feel more like friends poured into me in ways I didn’t even know I needed. They made me feel valuable in a weird way like I deserved to be in this oasis. If you have read this whole book of a review and are still on the fence do yourself and favor and just go! I don’t think it’s possible to not love it! I will be back.... soon!!

I needed so many things from my visit and got more than I could have hoped for. The level of personal care and attention was amazing and the amount of knowledge to learn was impressive. Can't recommend any place more!

Greetings All, Let me tell you what a pleasure it was to stay at The Hacienda del Sol Wellness Treat. This was one of the most amazing experience of my life. The Hacienda del Wellness Treat is truly one of the best and an incredibly magical places. I’ve told some friends who might be booking a stay in the next few months. I’m thinking to come back the end of January or March. I never felt better then when I wasn’t eating at your resort! Thank you for having me, Pura Vida!

Where do I start.....I have just returned from a one month stay at Hacienda Del Sol. I booked my trip on the advice of a trusted friend who assured me it was a place to heal and recharge. It was, but it was also so much more. For anyone needing a break from the stress of covid, needing to heal from their personal life experiences, needing to rediscover self care, needing care, seeking a life change, or simply wanting to experience an amazing wellness retreat, this is the place to go. From day one I felt I was taken care of in a way I had never been taken care of, on this level, before. From the little bungalow I stayed in to the meals I enjoyed and the therapy sessions I booked, and the wonderful people I met (guests and staff alike) it was overall an amazing experience. Every meal (I followed the plant based primal diet therefore making meal choices from the menu with the option of choosing keto meals whenever I wanted) was delicious, beautifully presented, and both nutrient dense and delicious. The thought and care put into all meal programmes is admirable. The kitchen staff are attentive, kind, helpful, and so accommodating. A lot of the fresh produce is grown onsite in a wonderful organic garden. Chicken and fish are locally sourced, a true 'farm to table, sea to table' experience. The rooms are private, very clean, cosy and comfortable and have a private deck with a hammock on which you can lounge while listening to the howling monkey's, singing birds and music of the surrounding jungle. You have a choice of rooms with/without A/C, indoor or outdoor bathrooms, or even with screened in walls which expose you to a wonderful indoor/outdoor jungle experience. I started my month long experience with a 7 day juice cleanse complete with daily colemas and a liver flush. The facilitator supports this entire process making it an easy and positive experience leaving you feeling super clean, energised and healthy. I also did the rebalancing programme with Shar, an incredible, experienced, caring and knowledgeable therapist. This was a life changing experience that transformed both my body and mind. (See more about the benefits on their website.) Sessions are 90 minutes long and focus is on rebalancing the entire physique. Combined with two daily yoga sessions, with the most attentive, experienced instructors; Julia, Vera and Garnet, I left Hacienda Del Sol after a month with a different body, literally, then the one I arrived with. I stand straighter, I am stronger, I am fit, I lost quite a bit of weight, I feel healthier, and mentally I feel I have a clearer, sharper mind with greater focus. When reading reviews and comments from guests about feeling 'transformed' I agree and completely relate to feeling the same, transformed, in addition to energised, I am happier, healthier and already look forward to planning my next trip. Hacienda Del Sol is a place to go to whether you know what you need or not. The staff will listen and support you in personalising your programme while there if you are unable to make these decisions yourself. There is something for everyone here and everyone, I met, thoroughly enjoyed their stay and left happy and wanting to return. Plan a trip now, you will not be disappointed.

NEW YORK43 contributions32 helpful votes
Having been overwhelmed by COVID-19 and solitude, these past many months, I took the leap and booked a trip rather quickly to Hacienda del Sol for two weeks near the end of November. Borders open. No longer a COVID test required to get in from the U.S. and a country of beautiful people and topography waiting for you. All practicing proper protocol. I had not done extensive research on the resort, nor been referred by anyone, as many of the guests are. I simply knew that I need to get to a place of rejuvenation fast, to try and undo months of stress which I felt were leading to my undoing at a rapid pace. Coming from New York, we tend to over analyze everything and be overly critical. But here, I trusted my gut. GOOD MOVE! Do yourself a favor and leave ALL that at home. Just surrender and let Hacienda do what they know how to do best - warmly embrace you and nurture you back to a healthy state of being. First and foremost you have options. You can choose your diet plan. I went with Keto. I could not even choose my own meal plan or schedule before arriving. Even that was too overwhelming for me! So, I left it all in the hands of the wonderful owner, Ramiro. Ramiro did not disappoint. First, he genuinely listened to what I was going through. Second, he suggested a reasonable itinerary and meal plan for me, which I could even modify while there. Again, I did not know much about the resort, but over the course of my two week stay, I was committed to the process and the Keto learning curve and it paid off. After all, they do say "no change, no change". I've just arrived home and quite simply, I feel better, lighter, healthier, brain fog gone, vertigo gone, sleep has returned and mentally - I've been re-charged. I want to continue to feel this way and the best part is that if you are so inclined, Ramiro will give you the tools to take back home so you can continue on your path to improving your health and well-being. Hacienda is a giant hug. From the moment you arrive, the staff embraces you. They are kind, accommodating, helpful and overall very skilled at making you feel like you are number one. But it's more than that. You really feel like they care about your well being. The food is the most incredible food I have ever had at a resort. The onsite greenhouse provides the freshest vegetables. Take a morning walk on the grounds and have a look. Lettuce is pulled daily that is 5 times the size of your head! All organic. The hotel obtains sea food and poultry from the local fisherman and farmers. You'll see the fisherman at the beaches. I repeatedly said it was the BEST shrimp I've ever had in my life!!!! From this NYC foodie that's a RAVE. While I did not try the freshly made smoothies, juices or desserts in my two week world of Keto, I did watch other guests partake, much to their delight! The kitchen staff, in their spotless open kitchen, are beyond skilled. They put love in to the preparing of each dish and their service. AND, here is a plus: you can get recipes and there are cooking classes!! The yoga instructors, Julia, Vera and Garnet, and the breath instructor - Yati, were skilled, intuitive and engaging. The yoga room is tremendous, and open with views to the jungle. I was captivated many times during class seeing hummingbirds right in front of me! The "spa" treatments I received were OUTSTANDING. My body scrub with Mosha - done with coffee and coupled with a deep tissue massage with coconut oil, was not to be believed. My second deep tissue massage with Garnet was also one of the best I have ever had. I even had my jaw massaged. Life changing. Then there is mystical magic of Menhla the beautiful original owner of Hacienda who gave me a cranial sacral treatment. So enlightening! Most evenings, I partook in the shuttles to the beaches at sunset - meant to bring us back to our circadian rhythm and to remind us of the beauty of the days end and nature itself. The beaches had great shells! Even the taxi services engaged by the resort were first rate! There is enough to do at Hacienda - even without venturing offsite, the salt water pool alone worked for me, though small, it's perfect. And, spotless! But if you do choose to take a break the accommodating staff can arrange off site visits to zip lines, horseback riding, waterfalls, Nosara (a cute beach town 45 minutes away) with cute shops and a lovely beach. The rooms at the resort are nice size, all products are "eco" you have netted beds, A/C if you want it or more of an open style where you can listed to the glorious sounds of the jungle. Up to you! Fiber optic internet recently installed, made it OK to not have a meltdown! If you need to work you can. Personally, I met with Ramiro 8 times while there in "coaching" sessions - all worth the price of admission. He changed my life! The guests too were all kind, and very interesting. I truly believe I took away life long friendships! The bonding was instantaneous and very rewarding. All you really need now is a bag of yoga clothes, some sunscreen, swimsuits and some flip flops and you are ready for PURA VIDA!!! Get going. Life is unpredictable and can be short as we have all seen in these times. Do this for you and make sure to stop, look and listen to the sounds of the monkeys, the birds and all of the butterflies! Enjoy!!
