Let me start off by saying IF YOU'RE ON THE FENCE, GO! You must go. Mary, Debbie and Peter are such beautiful human beings. Any bad reviews you read may be from people who mistook a yoga retreat on a mountain in Costa Rica run by humans for a Four Seasons Resort run by robots...#sorrynotsorry Mary, Debbie and Peter went...

I love peace, quiet and nature. Panacea de la Montana had those in abundance. It is not a hotel, and so expectations are important - it is more of a retreat space with activities available for booking (spa services, hikes, zip lining, etc.). It is on a mountain, and it's a steep drive up to the inn (Four wheel drive...

I don't know how this place got so many 5 star reviews - it's not realistic! GOOD: yoga was professional and very good even for beginners. The owners are nice and smile. Infinity pool is incredible! BAD: No road to the hotel. It's up in the mountains and unless you have SUV you will get stuck or start slipping off...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Panacea. We know that as it was the last two days of the year, you probably would not have stayed with us if you had found space at another hotel in our area. As such, there were many of the things about our mountain yoga retreat which were not...

There are so many things that I loved about Panacea - a 2 hour meditative yoga session every day, wonderful vegetarian meals served in an open-air dining room with great conversation, the infinity pool, massage and reflexology, and oh!.... the sunsets from our cabina on the mountain. The owners/proprietors, Mary, Debbie and Peter have complementary skills and work really well...

Pros: - beautiful land - fun pet dogs and cats - pretty infinity swimming pool with amazing view into a valley - food is pretty good - yoga was just lovely Cons: - run by 3 Westerners who seem to be attempting to find their inner peace, yet failing spectacularly. We were often stuck between their arguments, and felt quite...

I've stayed at Panacea twice in the past two years. The first trip I went solo and had a wonderful and rejuvenating vacation. At the airport, waiting in line to board, a woman said to me "you look like you just had a wonderful vacation". She was right. I wasn't sure I would be able to go back this year...
