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!

Room Tip: I would not recommend Coco 7, not very private due to a hotel across the way with a bird's eye v...

We did not stay at the Harmony but went there for yoga, lunch, and drinks. It is a beautiful property well taken care of and the most important thing is the service. Everyone is super nice, friendly and efficient. They also have an amazing Juice bar, that does great coffee too. Carlos and Anthony always took great care of us at the bar and made us some amazing cocktails. I would really like to stay here next trip.

I did not stay at this Hotel while in Playa Guiones (we rented a house), but went for a spa treatment (massage). Honestly, it was one of the best massages I've ever had. Check in process was a breeze, room was peaceful and comfortable, and massage was perfection. I toured the property after with the spa attendant to check out the pool area, smoothie/coffee bar, etc. Looks like a wonderful place to stay, loved the simplicity of the place while still having nice amenities, and I hope to come back! Great experience.

My yogi wife and I stayed here at the recommendation of a friend of ours. The staff were very helpful (if a bit overwhelming with information at first) and helped answer a barrage of questions from us. The pool area was well laid out and the hotel had very close access to the beach, an amenity since it's prohibited from building structures beachside.

The restaurant has some great sushi options that are even available poolside and there are lots of tasty juices and smoothies to choose from. Lots of lizard life around the pool for any animal lovers in your group!

Our only disappointment was around the family vibe of the place (if you're not looking for that). We were there as part of our honeymoon and weren't expecting to be one of the only non-family groups there, which gave it a bit of a different atmosphere. It could have been coincidental timing with some spring breaks, but it just left us with a different feel than we were hoping for. All in all a good hotel.
