"After ditching plans to hike the Camino Santiago because of time restraints, my friend and I ended up booking a week at the Lotus Retreat. It ended up being the perfect place to get refocused on my yoga practice and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Fuerteventura. The villa is beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in the basement room, which was less expensive and perfect as we only slept there anyway. The bathroom has a spacious shower and is just outside the bedroom door. One night I even slept in the hammock out in the courtyard which was delightful. The staff (Claire, Liz, Valeria, Barbara and anyone were welcoming and accommodating. The food was outstanding also if I had Valeria and Claire cooking for me, I would eat vegetarian all the time! The yoga and other classes catered to a variety of levels and all the instructors were more than happy to answer questions and interact with the guests. The best part was meeting some great women from all over the place and sharing this experience with them."
