My stay at Xinalani was nothing short of magic. From the moment I arrived, the staff was warm and welcoming and the views were breathtaking. My room, which was nestled into the cliffs overlooking the ocean, made me feel like I was living in a postcard. The food was delicious, the staff was attentive, the sprawling premises were well-kept, the...

Xinalani is truly a magical place. My friend and I stayed for just three days but had the most amazing experience. Everything is so well designed and planned out for you. We stayed in an eco chic suite and loved the spaciousness of the tree house (can't beat the porch and the hammock!). It was also conveniently located close to...

This is my first time ever taking a vacation alone. I have traveled alone before for work but having a vacation solo is a different experience.

We found Xinalani on Gilt City and I can honestly say it was the most flawless vacation I've ever been on.

From the boat ride to arrive to the view from the resort, it's simple magical. The location is away from the busyness of Puerto Vallarta, yet the people, food and scenery continue to exemplify and the beauty found in the area.
