These are 5 of our best testimonials on Trip Advisor over the past year:
I will admit it: I was skeptical at first. I am not a yogi, and I am not a vegetarian. My girlfriend and I found out about Panacea via Living Social and took a shot. What a pleasant surprise! You don’t have to be a yogi to enjoy the peace and serenity of the mountain top. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy the delicious and nutritious food. The owners, Mary, Debbie and Peter are terrific hosts. They work to accommodate their guests’ needs / schedules and allow their guests the space to enjoy their vacation. For example, my girlfriend and I wanted to do three things on our Costa Rican vacation: surf, sail and hike to a waterfall. During our four day stay, Mary made sure we accomplished all three! Skip the hotels and traditional resorts – branch out for your own Costa Rican experience. I’m a believer and I will be back! – Case K.
I cannot say enough good things about Panacea de la Montana! Even though neither my husband nor I are vegetarians and he has never practiced yoga, we decided to go out on a limb and try this resort. The food was amazing and much to my surprise, my husband was really into the yoga simply b/c Mary is such a fabulous instructor. We woke each morning to the sound of howler monkeys outside our little cabina on the mountainside, truly a piece of paradise. To top it off, we didn’t have to think or worry about our plans, we just told Mary, Peter, and Debbie what activities we were seeking and they arranged it all for us, down to the shuttle when we needed it. We skipped the spa services b/c we were in it for the adventure, but the guests who did go for them all raved about the quality. If you are on the fence about going, I say go, go go!!! Now that we are home, all I can think about is getting back there! Room Tip: All the cabinas are pretty much the same. You can’t go wrong. – Jana Brady
What a Paradise! The hosts are so kind. I came back feeling 10 years younger! THe food was amazing, the pool beautiful. I highly recommend this spot. They booked a few day trips for me: zip line(FUN!!!!!), They wen’t with me to Tamarindo and to secluded beaches that only locals knew about.All in all a perfect vacation.
I will be back!!! – Alejo R.
Panacea was the perfect place to have an incredible vacation but also a place where you can reconnect with yourself. The environment, yoga, food and company made it really special and after my week here I can’t imagine going to a regular resort. I was able to have some adventures in Tamarindo and on a Canopy tour, see lots of monkey’s and enjoy spa treatment with a massage and volcanic mud wrap. Everything was so easy, Mary arranged all of the trips and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Debbie made incredible vegetarian meals for us everyday, they were so good I bought the cookbook and can’t wait to recreate them at home. Peter gave us some expert reflexology treatment and was such a pleasure to talk to. Mary, Deb and Peter are some of the most passionate people I have met and I feel like after a week with them I am ready to bring more passion into my everyday life. I also can’t say enough about the yoga, Mary is an amazing teacher and I learned more from her in 7 days than I have in years going to yoga classes at home. If you are thinking about booking a vacation here you are on the right track! I promise you won’t regret it. – Tiarra K.
I just returned from a fantastic stay at Panacea. I can not say enough great things about this place. It is set on a beautiful mountain with fantastic views. You stay in a great cabina up on the mountain with the sound of nature to put you to sleep. Waking up to the sound of monkeys was amazing. Yoga each morning was exactly what I needed to unwind from my hectic NYC life. Mary makes everything so easy, handling arrangements for all of our activities and shuttle to/from the airport. Debbie’s food is incredible! Peter is fantastic, my reflexology was wonderful. The three of them have a special place in Panacea. I am so happy they welcomed me into their home. I can not wait to go back! – Starlight 822
