Just back from La Crisalida - my 2nd visit in 2 years. Absolutely fabulous. I had a lovely, spacious room - more a little flat - very comfortable and cosy. Food delicious - a vegan alkaline low glycaemic diet - a very much needed rest for digestive system. I never felt hungry. Weather fantastic after grey horrible February weather here...

For us it was about resetting ourselves after the excesses of Xmas but we came away with so much more. The information and demos on cooking and juicing were so interesting. The food was amazing and we felt there was plenty to do but no pressure to turn up for anything, if you didn't want to. Doctor Coach gave us...

My husband bought me a 3 day retreat here for Christmas. I was very nervous about going as have never done anything like this before, particularly on my own! Spent the first day full of mummy guilt at leaving my children but on day 2 I really got into the swing of things. I particularly loved the early morning walks...

'The cocoon', aptly named in the best sense of the term! I went here in October with the intention of having a 'mind, body & spirt' experience & that's exactly what I had. Don't consider it, just go ahead & book! Accommodation: I travelled on my own & booked a private room. I was allocated room 1. This was perfect...

I loved my stay here at La Crisalida! There was a great range of activities on offer here and always something to do but no pressure to join if you don't want to. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly and you get to try lots of different types of yoga. The food is really tasty but quite intense as it's fully...

I decided to go to La Crisalida literally 12 hours before I flew. It was a very last minute thing but it felt right. And it was right. The owners and staff are all very professional and take yoga, health and living well to heart and soul. There is not the slightest sense of pretence but only a real sense...

I stayed for 3 days and 3 nights at the end of November as a solo traveller and had a fantastic time. The staff were all lovely, the place is quiet and pretty.

Had a very relaxing short break at the retreat.The highlight being the wonderful food served for lunch and dinner. The kitchen staff do a fantastic job and everything is extremely tasty and well presented. The treatments and the yoga sessions are also excellent. Our accommodation was a little dated and needed a refurb but it didnt detract from our enjoyment....
