I have visited D’Alijo 3 times now

The 1st was to check it out and see if I wanted to change venues from a previous retreat center and host my retreats with Mikel and Nico. The other two times were two magical week long retreats. From first meeting Mikel and Nico they have been incredibly easy, fair and lot of fun to work with. They are always professional, kind and light hearted; just the way I would like to atmosphere to be at my yoga schools and my yoga retreats. 

It is obvious that they care about quality and detail in everything they do; from selecting and training their staff, to constantly improving, developing and maintaining their beautiful property.
I look forward to coming back to this retreat center with my groups for many years to come.
