I recently returned from La Crisalida after a 4 night stay. I really did not know what to expect as this was not the sort of break I usually go on. Plus I was a solo traveler. I can honestly say I returned home completely distressed and feeling so more relaxed. The food was amazing, plently of activities to do...

I had an amazing week at La Crisalida, met lovely people of all nationalities and ages. Everyone was very friendly, and the staff go out of their way to be helpful so that you soon feel at home. The food is delicious and you would never know that none of the recipes contain sugar or salt, also enjoyed the juices...

I found La Crisalida online and decided to go based on reviews and their flexible schedule. I'm so glad I did. It was a week of complete comfort and rejuvenation. The food is excellent and will be a wonderful surprise for anyone who thinks vegan is hard to like. All of the staff is well-qualified as well as warm and...

Will only leave a review if poor or great and this is definitely the latter . Arrived full of work related stress and a smattering of trepidation and left with space and hope. Highlights were the yoga classes , the amazing vegan food , the friendly staff, a great massage and the like minded souls staying there ......dive in .

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...

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...
