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...

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. I can honestly say I returned home completely distressed and feeling so more relaxed. The food was amazing, plently of activities to do...

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.

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 .
