Reviews for Luxury alkaline detox & wellness retreat in Spain


review 8 Sep 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Yoga after a glorious sunrise, with the lovely smell of a Jasmine plant by the window, before a delicious and nutritious breakfast.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Remember you can dip in and out of any activity; we did yoga pre-breakfast, pilates pre-dinner and a range of "work out" sessions and walks in between. You can fill your time with treatments, I didn't book any and enjoyed reading by the pool and swimming in the sea. You can also have quiet time on your own or chat with the others in your group - we were 9 women, all independent travellers.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - lots of local therapists and practitioners, all of whom were excellent. I was sad we had straws twice with breakfast smoothies - I well meant nice touch, but as I booked with R.T. I was sad about single use plastic. Ditto for the salads you could order on arrival and departure days.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Sheer bliss. An indulgence for me, but one that absolutely boosted by overall health and wellbeing. Julie the director has great attention to detail, and all staff have a personal touch to ensure you are benefiting and enjoying the most from your holiday.

Read the operator's response here:

To date we have not been able to find an alternative to offering guests mains tap water here, although the water is absolutely fine to drink many guests don't want to as they have a concern regarding the quality of tap water here in Spain, therefore we do provide 5 litre bottles as required, we do ask all guests to please return them to the restaurant when finished & our team will be happy to A. Provide a new full one & B. To place the bottle into the appropriate recycling station...this is done on a daily basis. Straws: We only offer straws on 2 occasions when smoothies are served, guests can decline their use, we have also been trialling a variety of alternatives & we already have paper straws available. We do operate a very strict re-cycling policy which we adhere to & we also ask all of our guests to please also follow this policy, this is not only for the very limited use
