Peaceful is an understatement. We had plans to visit Puerta Vallarta and other places nearby with this place as the base. But we gave up the idea and stayed for all 5 days within the premises. Spent the most amount of quality family time and with oneself in a long, long time... amidst a basic, no-pretence environment. It was quite... More

This resort was just perfect. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The location is incredible. We were on a yoga teacher training retreat and the used the yoga facilities on a daily bases. They had everything you would need for your practice. We were also on a Vegan diet. All the Vegan food that they prepared for us... More

When you want to go to heaven without all of the messy details of dying, go to Mar de Jade. This is one of the most beautiful places that I've had the pleasure to visit. It's so well situated in a natural setting that it's hard to describe. It;s a place that has to be seen to believe. You'd better... More

I recently I went to Mar de Jade for my teacher’s retreat and then for my retreat. Beautiful! I went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of the ocean. Fresh food, very helpful staff, simple but very nice room. If you want to time away from a busy life, this is the place for you.

Mar de Jade has a great mission - to support the people of the local town of Chacala, population of about 300. They can arrange for a driver to provide r/t transport to/from the airport in Puerto Vallarta, which is a 90-minute drive to the retreat center. The main highways between PV and the retreat center are totally paved and... More

Can't imagine a more wonderful place to get away, relax and renew. I found Mar de Jade on-line when looking for a Yoga venue in Mexico for a vacation for myself and my 2 adult daughters. We had't been away together in 10 years and I wanted a place that would be allow us to do a little yoga and... More

I attended a women's leadership training at Mar de Jade. The daily meditation and yoga sessions, the amazing healthy yummy food, the rollicking waves, and the helpful staff contributed to the learning and joy of the experience.

For a retreat, a solo vacation or a couple get away this is the place to go on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Outside of busy Puerto Vallarta, Mar de Jade is a paradise in sight, sound and service. Originally built by Dr.Laura del Valle as a center to offer health services to an underserved community, now Mar de Jade... More

My husband and I were on a retreat at Mar de Jade. The energy of this Eastern influenced spiritual space is the backdrop for three 'clean' and delicious daily meals, pool, whirlpool, Zen mediation, yoga and a staff that obviously likes to be at their place of work. The hotel is situated close to the ocean so the lolling sound... More

The hotel is a spiritual center, and provides safe (fresh vegetable and fruits, etc) and healthy meals. We had a retreat of about 60 people. Every meal has a different juice (e.g. orange-mango, guava-celery, watermelon. The dessert was very well portioned-small-we don't need to eat a gigantic dessert. Our group of retreaters applauded the chef, and the entire kitchen staff.... More
