“good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Had a very relaxing week at the end of January and can strongly recommend Azul.

Great yoga teacher and the structure of the courses was enjoyable. Starting the day with a class before breakfast was brilliant. I’d not tried pilates before but got a lot out of some of the classes. The staff were lovely and very helpful. It’s quite a slickly run operation and everything went smoothly. Communications with them by email while booking were also excellent.

The yoga and pilates was aimed at a very accommodating level and everybody felt pushed, but not overwhelmed. It was nicely done. Though I’m not a beginner there were a few in the group. I think hardcore yogaheads would want something more immersive.

It was cool in the evenings and early morning (late Jan) but nice and warm in the day. The villa and its communal areas are very pleasant, though there’s not much of a garden really.

The group itself was one of the best bits, especially if you’re travelling solo. Almost 16 of us at one point, so it felt busy, maybe a bit too busy. The two nights out in local restaurants were a lot of fun. The Azul food was very interesting and always tasty, and the group dining was enjoyable.

This is a great place, so why not five stars?

One or two of the classes were a bit weak and for me there was too much pilates. The pool was tiny – it’s a misleading pic online. It must be 5m long. Useless for swimming and too cold anyway. Be aware that there’s not a lot doing in Villaverde and bus transport is infrequent, though there are day trip options.
Many in the group didn’t really like their rooms. The lower floor options (Canarias, California and India) in particular. They said it was dark and felt damp. I was in the tent, which was novel but also not great. It was cold some nights and, despite the sofa, not somewhere to hang around in. Though there is lighting inside the tent it was very gloomy by night – had to use a torch inside it. Other minor gripes from the group were the common water, which sometimes ran out, and the paid wi-fi. Minor stuff really…

Thank you for your review - your tips and advice will certainly be helpful for other solo travelers.
We are happy you found the classes were challenging but not overwhelming - the goal of the week is to help you deepen your practice but also provide you with some restorative sessions to help your body integrate as you move, strengthen, stretch and open over the course of the week.
For the 'yogaheads' :) we do offer special intensive retreat weeks on a regular basis, where they really have a chance to immerse in one specific practice - whether it be a dynamic yoga, intensive Pilates or a detox week they are after.
We are sorry you found the pool size disappointing, we do have the measurements online in our FAQ section and are sure to inform anyone who enquires about lap swimming that the pool is not suitable for that. It is a plunge pool, and it does tend to be a little cold in January when you visited - this is the coolest time of year on the island. We are also sorry to hear that the tent felt a little 'gloomy' to you - many of our reviewers love the Sahara tent experience but of course each person is different. If the weather is overcast the mood can certainly shift to feel this way also, but I do hope the overall experience was a good one and you came back from your trip feeling relaxed and energised with some great new friends. Our rooms have recently been updated (in June) so I am sure anyone staying on our ground level rooms will be very happy with them. We do truly appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you again one day, perhaps for a special week.
Thank you and very warm regards,
Jamie Isaac

I have just returned from Azul Fit's specialty retreat in Bali, feeling relaxed, refreshed and strong. Jaime and Karissa were so lovely and the perfect hosts allowing for a flawless week of pilates. Every detailed of the trip seemed to have had so much thought put into it. From the amazing accommodation at Desa Seni to the incredible, healthy food we were treated to every day. Jaime's pilates classes were challenging, inspirational, and lots of fun. He is an excellent teacher who has inspired me to continue on with my training back at home. His focus on the classical method and incorporating modern techniques has sent me home with a tailor made workout I know I will be able to keep up. If you get an opportunity to study with Jaime....Don't miss it!

Thank you for the review, Rebecca.
I have to say, I enjoyed the week immensely also.
You and the rest of the Pilates crew worked super hard and made it a pleasure and honor to be teaching you.
Keep up the good work back home and feel free to be in touch should you need any advice or thoughts regarding your personalized Pilates program.
I hope you join us again... Perhaps on the next Azul adventure?
Peace.

I have been there last week. In the beginning I didn't know what to expect.. I have to admit that It was the best gift I have ever gave to myself! The place is lovely, bigger than I thought and very comfortable. I chose the Santa Fe room which is big, with a nice view and a very comfortable double bed! The bathroom is just next to the room and I had to share it with another room of two. The bathroom was very modern and clean!
The instructions are absolutely professionals and they know what they are doing. I enjoyed yoga, pilates, tai chi, meditation and treatments there (Alejandra was the best for massage). The food is absolutely perfect (Jo really knows how to cook/and Manuel as well)! The stuff is very helpful.. Whatever you want to do , they know how to organize it for you! Do not miss to visit the Grandes Playa in Corralejo..It is the best place to see there!
You will feel far away from tourists but close enough to get or to see what you want.. If you are a solo traveler do not hesitate to do it.. It is actually a place where you should go alone if you need a couple of days your silence and to forget work.. You will never feel lonely because you will meet so many people there. It is perfect because you have your privacy when you need it but you can talk or do something with somebody else whenever you want..
I definitely recommend this place! You will go back more relaxed , stronger and happier ! It was absolutely the best experience I ever had..!

Room Tip: Santa Fe is very comfortable, big enough and it is inside of the main building..The decoration is ve...

The facilities were a perfect compliment to the yoga. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. And the food was superb! The rooms were comfortable and had fridges to keep groceries and water cold. There were even snacks available in case you had a midnight craving!

The nearby bakery is great for lunches and the supermarket is very handy. It's only a 15 minute bus ride into Corralejo where there are beautiful beaches, or 15 minutes in the opposite direction to El Cotillo where there are perfect waves to learn to surf. It can be quite windy but when the sun is out, make sure you have sunscreen on!

Definitely an amazing time at a very fitting place. Would have stayed longer if I could!

The perfect remedy to the everyday stresses and pressures....a week at the Azul Fit lodge in Fuerteventura.
I expected a high standard of service but got so much more. The staff were incredible and couldn't do enough for me and my fellow guests. Conversation among us often led to how amazed we all were by the location, level of instruction, the accommodation and the food.
Faultless, friendly and Fantastic..
Thank you.
