    "Wendy is an excellent yoga teacher and a very helpful person. She offered different classes every day , so I never got bored. The Lotus Pad has a great location. It's just fifteen minutes from the beach and is on the quieter and more peaceful side of the island. The place is nice, calm and with a lot of space for relaxing. The retreat includes breakfast and dinner and the cook, Neil, was excellent. Best vegetarian food ever! I wholeheartedly recommend Lotus Pad."

  • Review by Response by Wendy from The Lotus Pad Ibiza

    "Unfortunately I believe that Charifa and her friend had different expectations of a yoga retreat in the countryside. They were provided with a tent, all bed linen, a towel, a yoga class and breakfast every day for the cost of £295 for week. Ibiza is an expensive island and this is a really good deal and other guests have often mentioned how reasonable this is. We are in the countryside so of course insects will come into the tent and as she kept food in there this will attract them a lot. We do not have space to store food for guests as our fridge is used to provide breakfast items for all our guests and we are a small place so do not have room for guest food also. Our guests are provided with breakfast but expected to eat out the rest of the time. "

    "Charifa and her friend I believe wanted a cheap place to stay so they could go out and party. Our place is quiet and our guests expect that it is a peaceful place without loud music or people disturbing other guests by coming in early hours of the morning. I suggested this to Charifa that perhaps they would prefer a place to party, but was met with a lot of arrogance and she was quite rude to myself and several guests. Had I known that they did not want to do the yoga or even get up for breakfast (her friend rarely joined us), then I would have suggested they find a 5 star hotel to stay in where they can pay this amount per night and get fresh sheets and towels every day and come and go whenever they want. "

    "People are entitled to do what they want on holiday. But as the teacher and owner of the retreat it is also up to me to make it a nice experience for everyone. People come here to relax, do yoga and go to the beach and to sleep.Since Charifa did not enjoy the yoga, the tent, or our place or like me then it was very difficult to make this a nice experience for her. I made allowances for her many medical complaints during classes by encouraging her to stop when she needed to. Clearly this was not enough for her and I think perhaps she would rather enjoy a more personalized yoga practice at a higher cost than she paid. As for the yoga being boring, I am pleased to hear nobody else thinks this. "

    "At no point did I suggest she could not go to the bathroom in the night."

    "Unfortunately Charifa and her friend had the expectations of an expensive hotel for the cost of a tent on a yoga retreat in the countryside. Ultimately this made her stay difficult and here attitude rude and unfriendly. "

    "I hope she find what she wants in other places , but I suggest not a yoga retreat experience. "

    "I stayed for 7 days at the BBY Lotus Pad with my friend. "

    "Positive points: "

    "-Great location; "

    "- silence and nature; "

    "- wonderful healthy and tasty breakfast"

    "Negative points:"

    "- The tent was filled with mold which gave me respiratory complaints afterwards"

    "- The tent was infested with ants and spiders"

    "- You get only 1 towel for your entire stay"

    "- Poor hygiene"

    "- The teacher/owner was not a pleasant person. She used to judge me and my friend for everything we did. It felt like a military camp. "

    "- We were judged and humiliated in front of the other guests why we went out and party one night and why my friend drinks alcohol. We suggested her to put it on her website if she doesn't want that and we are in a free country to party and drink"

    "- The yoga sequences are boring and the teacher does not take pain into account"

    "- The yoga mats and pillows where filthy and never cleaned"

    "- You were not allowed to use the fridge to store your own food"

    "- You were not allowed to make any noise: talk soft, don't watch YouTube videos (put on headphones) or walk in the middle of the night to the bathroom to not disturb other people's sleep."

    "I was staying at the Lotus Pad for three days and it was an amazing stay! Looking back I’d might have booked a longer period. Maybe next year. The Lotus Pad has a very good vibe, great location (in a more peaceful surrounding than the south of the island), good yoga, very nice breakfast and there are many options for your stay to see the island. Especially if you rent a car or a scooter. I have had the luck, too meet some likemind beautiful souls to share this experience with. It was like having five sisters. A perfect option for peace & harmony in body, mind and soul. On the road to the Lotus Pad there is a really nice lunchroom called Can Guimo. If you like vegan and smoothies, this is a good one!"

    "I had a fabulous week at The Lotus Pad! A very relaxing and quiet environment, where I felt incredibly welcome. It was my first yoga experience and I felt very comfortable in Wendy's capable hands. And the breakfast's after was phenomenal! All round, I will be back when I can."

    "What a special space The Lotus Pad is. Inspiring yoga has aided me so much with my post-op hip challenges and reminded me of its healing and totally welcoming warmth. Wendy, you are blessed with such unique talent and you combine all yogas elements together so beautifully - meditation and breathwork serving as big a purpose as the asanas. Neil, thank you for such scrummy food - each meal was exactly what I fancied and you have a huge ability to keep dishes simple whilst mixing flavors and colors. Thank you. I look forward to visiting Ibiza again soon and will certainly look into another retreat and most definitely recommend your place to friends. Namaste and shanti."

    "It would be impossible to sat the The Lotus Pad and not be affected by the lemon tree, apricots, expansive skies, space, sunshine, energy and cockerel serenades. All the love and care taken to make the Lotus Pad the nice place it is totally worth it. I hope it remains a sanctuary for fun, interesting and lovely people for a long, long time."

Wendy, for the consistently great teaching in asana, meditation, and pranayama. (The dynamic meditation was a new one for me lots of fun). Thanks also for your friendship, always a pleasure to get to know you more. Neil - entertaining as always and delicious food - thank you. Jeanette - gorgeous massage. Until next time. Xxx"

    "When Ive previously booked 3 months ago, it was for the yoga - I knew what I was letting myself in for, so thank you for the yoga Wendy. It has opened my hips and my heart, strengthened my arms and turned me upside down and thank you also for the amazing food, Neil. Thank you both for the comfortable space in which to heal and prepare for things to come. Its a lovely place, the Lotus Pad and one for peace, reflection and friendship."
