Spending time relaxing in and around the stunningly beautiful accommodation. There really was very little need to leave. We had the most amazing time in a simply beautiful location with stunning accommodation. Our hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I would recommend this vacation wholeheartedly and can't wait to return. (more)Donna Linden
The most memorable was the overall ambience of the quinta especially swimming in the unique pool surrounded by beautiful countryside. This could be a 'no shoes, no news ' vacation if you wanted to make it - but you' d miss out too. (more)Angie Leonard

The dancing was amazing, hilarious, fun and depending on how much you put into it - painful due to bad shoes! But totally worth it. The people there - I can't describe how warm and welcoming they are. The dancers, the guides.... everybody I met in fact. (more)Britt Voll
One of the best moments was probably snorkeling in the Bay of Pigs area near Play Giron, and then of course all the salsa dancing, both in classes and in the evenings! (more)Anniina Simula

Coming from a stressful job in the U.K. the best bit for me was the yoga by the sea. I have never done yoga but it was taught very well so I could follow along with ease. It was so relaxing and jumping into the sea afterwards was refreshing and truly revitalising! (more)Katie Gormley
