We were booked into lodge 8 and it was perfect for our family of four, as we had requested extra beds for our kids, aged 12 and 17. The setting is very chill and relaxed, which was what we were looking for. Since both my wife and I travel the world as part of our business, usually staying at top...

I stayed for a month for a 200 hour yoga teacher training, and it was an amazing time. The entire staff was amazing, the owner Kurt welcomed us like family, and it was a perfect venue for yoga and restoration. There were howler monkeys, iguanas, and other wildlife that visited, a beautiful pool and deck area for reading and relaxing,...

We came here for a 200 hour yoga teacher training and spent the last month here. The rainy season was just finishing, and we got to experience the first winds of summer. The coconut and palm trees blowing in the wind around the gorgeous curved pool, with the view of mountains across the horizon was our daily sight. The iguanas...

Came here for a 6day yoga retreat. The cabins are on the basic side but do have AC and warm showers. No TVs which is what I needed to disconnect, they do have wifi though. Beautiful pool overlooking the mountains. Post-card worthy views from everywhere on the property! The chef Donald was amazing! We were all waiting for the next...

El Sabanero is surrounded by nature. Harold is fantastic and very accommodating and the staffs too. The place is so peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend 100% to stay on this place. There are no enough words can describe El Sabanero and Harold. We will definitely be back.

I recently stayed at El Sabanero and had a great experience. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We had our own private cabin. The views and sounds of nature are undescribable. I miss it already. The place is tucked away on the mountain but very close to popular beaches. When you stay there you get best of both worlds....
