My friend and I spent the May bank holiday weekend at La Crisalida. From the moment we stepped in the door we were greeted by a warm welcome and a lovely juice. The choice of activities is great - we opted in for the rebounding class and the various yoga sessions. There is a nice mix of energetic yoga and...

I chose La Crisalida because I was looking for a yoga retreat that was easy to get to from Budapest and that fit in the specific week that I had off for spring break. Location: I liked that the retreat was located within walking distance to the beach and some shops. It is also quite near to a nature reserve...

I spent the Easter weekend (Fri-Mon) at La Crisalida Retreat in El Albir. I booked here because I wanted some early spring sun with some relaxed yoga, maybe some road cycling and I wasn't looking for a 'party'. And it fitted the bill perfectly. Booking/Price: Booking is really easy, I actually emailed them first because I had a few questions...

La Crisalida is set in such beautiful grounds, I couldn't stop taking pictures, it has so much character and our room was divine. The bed was so comfy and there was more than enough space. The food was none other than sensational - not only did it smell incredible it tasted fantastic, and Barbie seemed so passionate about her food...

I have been interested in going to a yoga retreat and when the opportunity came up, found La Crisalida. As we were travelling in April I wanted a warm sunny destination that wasn't too far away - and flying into Alicante fitted the bill. Th retreat is just over an hour from the airport and is set in a quiet...

The retreat is a lovely place in a quiet part of town, the staff & tutors were all friendly, warm & welcoming. Our room was clean and spacious, the beds were a bit basic & one creaked very loudly ....... the pools were clean but freezing .... time of year sadly. My one complaint was the food, it was bland,...

If you're looking for somewhere to relax and take some time for you this is the place. I have recommended it to several people, one of whom has already booked. I have never felt as good as I did when I left after 5 days.

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.
