My husband and I stayed at Harmony Hotel in May 2017 for a yoga retreat. We had a wonderful time and Harmony was a great backdrop with a couple flaws that could matter to some and completely not matter to others. The hotel restaurant was delicious, we had breakfast, lunch and some of our dinners onsite. The hotel set up a large table for our group and service was prompt and super accommodating to our needs. The couples massage that we had was one of the best ever, we chose the Surfers Massage which focused on upper body and the muscles used to surf. The beach is a very short walk away. The walk outside of the hotel gets a little muddy if you are visiting during the rainy season and we found that water shoes worked better than flip flops. Playa Guiones is stunning and Harmony has surf boards for hotel guests that my husband took advantage of. The yoga facilities are very relaxing, our group used the larger outdoor yoga space versus the shala. A couple small issues with music connectivity but overall, this is an amazing backdrop to your yoga practice. We stayed in Coco room 7. The room is not very soundproof, you can hear quite literally everything that is going on outside or to the rooms next to you. I think this is due to really thin walls and non-traditional windows. We asked for a quiet room and the reservations group suggested Coco #7. I'm not sure that this was the best suggestion as there was another hotel overlooking our room so when those guests were outside or when they had dinner and dancing, we were able to hear everything. It was not very private and we couldn't take advantage of using our outdoor shower because it felt like the hotel across the way would have a bird's eye view. If you plan to stay in a Coco, I would suggest staying on the other side of the resort as those rooms seemed way more private. Better yet, upgrade to a Bungalow (we tried, but those were booked). The rooms themselves were clean and the A/C worked wonderfully. The decor was sparse which felt very zen and relaxing, but it would have been nice to have a dresser to unpack. Overall, we had a wonderful trip and would stay at Harmony again, just in a different room. Pura Vida!
