Great friendly retreatStayed at La Crisalida for 11 nights and I would highly recommend if you are looking for relaxation or to improve your mental and physical wellbeing- they have a programme with lots of different activities on offer which will suit most people. had a coaching session with John who I thought was very calming, warm and approachable . the session lasted for 3 hours and finished with a hypnosis session and I think it really worked well for me. In terms of the retreat its in a lovely location close to the main rest with the beach just a 10 -15minutes walk away. There was lots of activities to choose from every day starting early in the morning and finishing around 8.30pm/9pm each night. There is lots of variety in terms the weekly activities and fitness classes are mainly yoga. The accommodation is really nice and very homely and the grounds are well kept and very beautiful and relaxing, there’s lots of books and DVDs to borrow from the retreats library. The food is vegan, which I am not, however I juiced for the most of my stay – which where very nice. The staff are very helpful and friendly and this is my second visit in 4 weeks and I would absolutely be returning. Would recommend for anyone looking for clarity, or just an escape from everyday life, it was just what I needed and worth every penny.

One of the best retreats value for moneyI came to la crisálida being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Back home tried IMF & other diets to bring my weight down but it wasn’t budging due to other contributing factores. The juicing gave me a new chance ( even though I only did it 4 days lunch & breakfast only ). I can’t say enough about the food prepared here absolutely amazing vegan food. The hole place has calming affect on body & soul . I have severe fibromyalgia and ME. The pool was amazing & temperature good for my muscles. I participated in activities such as yoga & meditation and didn’t have to do more than I could. My room was comfortable & clean and my roommate Mervi was amazing & understandings to my insomnia. I have this thing that never go to a place twice as there are so many new places one can see & experience. But I will come back here again. Lisa & John have managed to run a very efficient, environmentally friendly retreat . I recommend this place even to the fussiest of people as you will not be disappointed

Relax and detoxEs un lugar de ensueño. Tranquilo, sosegado... todo se hace sin prisa, pero se hace mucho. Las comidas, los zumos, las actividades... todo está pensado hasta el más mínimo detalle. El personal siempre pendiente para que nada falle. Sin duda repetiré.

Safe wellness - great yogaJust had the most wonderful 10 days at the retreat. Reassuring Covid safe procedures were in place everywhere all the times. Fantastic yoga teachers and group mentors were the focus of my retreat, the food is of a high quality and plentiful. Both pools were my second home while there. I can’t not recommend La Crisalida more. I will be soon later this year

What a great choice we made!Stayed for 4 nights with my friend , mid February. lovely relaxed retreat, very friendly. Wonderful teachers. Loved the way you could opt in or out as you wished. We enjoyed our2 bed flat,gave us our own space and retreat during day/ evening,if we wanted time to ourselves. It was really easy to pack up caffeine, sugar and alcohol whilst there (maybe i should stay 4 weeks not 4 nights next time!) . A special mention for Barbie, the passionate cook. We may well come back again for some more tranquillity and relaxation. (NOTE despite all the detoxing i managed to put on 3 lbs in 4 days!)

My stay at La CrisalidaThe decision to stay at La Crisalida is the best I have made for many years particularly from a health aspect The other guests were friendly with many interests and from many different countries and cultures The trainers made the many and varied activities fun and were very supportive of all the various abilities All the staff were friendly and helpful The treatments on offer were of a high quality and the practitioners were equally as friendly and caring Accommodation is rustic attractive and very clean but if you like luxury hotel style places to stay don’t go and then complain The accommodation style reflects the lovely ambience of La Crisalida Can’t wait to return hopefully at the same time as two friends I made while staying there

Many myths about food, diet and nutrition exist and in this new book - Spoon-Fed - from epidemiologist, Tim Spector, he explores whether there is any scientific evidence behind them.

There are some fascinating chapters, including "Veganmania - a vegan diet is the healthiest diet", "nutritional guidelines and diet plans apply to everyone" and "drinking alcohol is always bad for you". Chapters are short and easy to read. If you are interested in learning more about the science behind some of the food myths then this is a great book to read.

Nuts and seeds are a great source of protein, fibre, healthy fats plus vitamins and minerals. They form a part of the plant-based diet that we serve at the retreat and make a tasty addition to most meals. Which are your favourites?
