My wife and I stumbled upon Xinalani through a Gilt City deal and it was one of the most incredible gems we've uncovered up to this point in our relationship. The entire experience at Xinalani was amazing! The transportation was handled extremely well from the airport to the marina to the Retreat itself. We had our first meal and we... More

Amazing resort, amazing suite, amazing staff, amazing views, amazing food, amazing new friends, amazing yoga instructors....peaceful, calming and away from all the stress of the world. Cons: I was there in mosquito season. Can't wait to come back in the winter months.

From the boat ride to arrive to the view from the resort, it's simple magical. The location is away from the busyness of Puerto Vallarta, yet the people, food and scenery continue to exemplify and the beauty found in the area. Be prepared to walk around 200 steps, but the luxury tree houses, spa and food offering offer a unique... More

I was there for a yoga retreat, I booked by looking on their website and picked the retreat that fit my dates, then they have you contact the yoga teacher directly to book the... More

This place is 110% as promised. It's beautiful, the service is gracious and impeccable, the location is staggering, the "tree houses" are perfectly outfitted, and you'll leave in better shape than you came from yoga, stair climbing and, if you choose, hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, all of which I did. Eco chic suite #15 was gorgeous--off on it's... More

This hotel is incredibly unique. It's located towards the end of Puerto Vallarta, far away from all the craziness. The rooms are very natural, no windows with amazing ocean views from each room. The only negative for some is the lack of ceiling fans or A/C but once you get used to it, you're good to go. The food was... More

This is a magical resort for the yoga enthusiast either by booking through the resort or organizing as a group. Accommodations are very comfortable, well maintained and very clean, housekeeping take their job very seriously. The food is excellent, very clean eating meeting any dietary concerns. The resort is built on the side of a mountain so there are lots... More

Just got back from a week at Xinalani for a retreat with my Austin-based yoga teacher. We had previously been going annually to Tulum but the seaweed problem there was overwhelming. The adventure starts with getting there: you need to take a water taxi from a marina that is about 5 minute drive from the airport. Xinalani has this part... More

- Great staff. Everyone was very friendly. Enrique was our favorite yoga instructor. Jimmy did a tremendous job behind the bar and serving food. - Can't beat the view in the yoga studio. Also nice to have a breeze. - Food was off the charts. Healthy, but very delicious. Probably the most noteworthy feature. - We enjoyed the Petite Suite.... More
