“out-of-time retreat”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

Xinalani hosts have managed to create a awesome place, idoneous for those who like to pause their day-to-day urban life. Nature, quietness, ambiance, everything brings peace to the visitor's mind... and body for the yoga adepts. Definitely a place to return from time to time

Together with a bunch of friends, we wanted to find an idyllic rural retreat to progress in our way to yoga blossoming: we definitely found it with this one week stay at Xinalani!
It’s hard to imagine a more scenic location to practice yoga. The open view on the sea from each room offers quite picturesque moments, especially every morning and evening with beautiful sunsets.
The food is very fresh and the cuisine is just exquisite: the perfect way to detox with pleasure!
We’re coming back next year for sure!

Dear Matmoro,
Thank you so much for your kind review, indeed all the staff here at Xinalani enjoyed the joy and energy you and your friends brought to this place, and they send special salutes to Martuch and Pero ! Doing yoga with you guys was awesome, boy did you kick my butt, no wonder you're so fit ! We can't wait to have you back this year!
Best,
Jean-Baptiste

We have spent a week in xinalani in January 2011.
Paradisiac location, very good food (far from usual clichés of Mexican fast food), and huge yet simple comfort in the rooms. Sleeping with an open view on the ocean is just a memorable experience.
If you are looking for a relaxing place dedicated to well-being, you will love xinalani.
And last but not least: the French-Mexican couple owning the hotel is caring about every little detail, as is the staff (for any service you need, just ask Rodrigo !)

Xinlani is great for a completely relaxing week (or two !). The surrounding wilderness, the charmful rooms, the yoga courses: everything is there to bring you peace of mind. Service is top quality without being too invasive, food is excellent, prices are very competitive. We were reluctant to have our baby kid coming along but she actually enjoyed it very much.

I stayed with my girlfriend in this stunning spot in november 2010. We slept in one of the Eco Chic suites, and the experience was amazing. In this kind of place, you feel free, relax, read, eat fresh food, enjoy the view... and at the end of the day, the price for value is excellent. For sure we will return there this year !
