This was my second visit to Obsidian and again I had a private single room with en suite. The room was spacious, with plenty of storage, an in-room safe, and the all important aircon! The transfer from Alicante was straightforward, and I immediately got chatting to two new friends who arrived on flights at the same time. This is what... More

I have just spent a week at Obsidian for a week. I did a 3 day juice detox first which kickstarted my clean up and made me feel really energised just with the big shot of nutrients it gave me. I use their juices in the Uk and never feel hungry but i was amazed to see how active i... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Obsidian for a week in June. I must say I was a little apprehensive before we arrived in Spain as this was going to be a whole new experience for me. Our holiday started as it ended with total professionalism and nothing less than excellent customer service from when we were pickedup at the... More

Normally when I go on holiday I live like a King for the first half of the week and then about Thursday I start to feel uncomfortable in my own skin...the excessive eating and drinking begins to catch up with me and I start to dread going home and the inevitable depression of being 10 llbs heavier than when I...

This is a lovely, relaxing place where people lose their anxieties, their daily stresses and for those who want unwanted pounds. The juicing programme, should you choose to follow it, is delicious and makes you feel great. The exercise classes are splendid and even an old unfit person like me felt able to take part and get something from it.... More

I spent five days at the beginning of June, my first visit. It was the perfect combination of detoxing, weight loss 5lbs, sunbathing, walks and great excercise classes. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and returned to the UK feeling really well with a kick start to a healthier life style back home.

I went here to relax, exercise and most importantly to lose weight. I achieved all of these things at obsidian and more. The resort is set in a beautiful location. My room had a double aspect overlooking the vineyards and hills surrounding obsidian. I participated in the organised morning walks, the relaxing yoga, the rebounding which made us all feel... More
