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

This was a detox and yoga retreat so as you'd expect the food was uber healthy, it was also delicious, vegan and very lovingly prepared by a talented Spanish chef who was on site most of the time. The yoga and pilates were a very high standard and I really enjoyed the trips - cycling, coast walk and I highly recommend booking massage treatments. The people who run the break, Nicole and Gary, are very caring, warm and professional.

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

Take lots of leggings and layers if going in the Spring.

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

Yes, it is a small retreat which is advantageous as there are about 10 max, so obviously it is not a major employer but trips use local companies and massage by local people etc The people running these retreats are very conservation minded. The food was vegan which is the kindest diet we can eat for the animals and the planet.

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

Excellent. Highly recommend. Every detail taken care of.

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

My injured back feeling a lot better. I put this down to the excellent yoga, taken by Nicky. I am a yoga beginner, however for me the classes flowed excellently, and I felt very included even the abilities ranged very widely in the class. Extra treatments I had included Indian head massage, reflexology and ionic foot bath - all excellent and revitalising.

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

If you feel a bit run down go on this break. Go anyway it will help you to glow!

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

Yes the holiday was run by Nicky and her husband who live locally. Additional treatments were available all provided by local residents. Hotel has been owned by the same family for many, many years and was perfect for me.

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

This was my first retreat type holiday. I returned home feeling re-energised and much better than before the weekend.

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

There were lots of memorable aspects but the two things that stand out were the varied mixture of activities in the programme, and the cohesion of the group and tutors alike. The whole programme was beautifully planned and managed professionally.

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

I would definitely encourage people to book extra treatments in advance - you will not regret it, and to definitely encourage reduction of caffeine/alcohol before the programme

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

Yes - all the food, and even the products used in treatments were sourced locally or other parts of Spain

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

Brilliant! Itís exactly what a lot of women need during stressful times and itís a fantastic environment to make friends and support other people.

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

The food was absolutely delicious and we were never hungry which was quite a surprise for a detox holiday. The exercise program was just perfect and you could do as much or as you felt able to. The treatments in the SPA were excellent. All around it was a fantastic holiday.

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

If you are going in December bring warm clothes!

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

The restaurant was very careful not to waste food. All refuse was very carefully sorted.

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

The holiday was excellent. The leaders were on hand at all times to make sure that we were all having the best experience. Any extra requests we had were all catered for without any hassle. I would recommend this holiday to anyone wanting to take some time out for themselves and to detox and relax. We met wonderful interesting people on the holiday and would hope to go again next year.
