I chose La Beuna Vibra for the great reviews and the fact that it had a gym and pool big enough to swim laps. I’ll return for many reasons, but chiefly three. Tepoztlan is know for its nature and it’s energy, and LBV is in the heart of the jungle at the foot of the mountains. One is serenaded at night by a gentle chorus of wildlife, and one awakes to the sound of stillness and the view of mist receding from the stunning face of the stone cliffs that border property. There are plenty of lovely hotels in Tepoz Centro, but if you’re traveling for tranquility, LBV is the best choice. The Mercado, artisan shops and restaurants taxis are only a 10 minute / 60 peso taxi away. The property looks beautiful in photos, but no photography could do justice to the care and intricacy of the buildings and landscaping. To walk around the property is to be simultaneously rooted in the spirit of Tepoz and also transported through the vision and imagination of the people who created it. This property alone is a reason to visit Tepoz. Which brings me to the third reason I’ll return: the people. Every member of staff is warm, attentive and charming. With the notion of luxury hospitality comes a certain expectation of competency, but LBV exceeds these expectations to a astonishing degree. To wit, on this rainy morning of my (very early) departure the security guard on duty brought an umbrella and left it open at my door. Thoughtfulness like this is inherent in some, but it’s generally imbued by leadership, in this case Paul and Tanya. Tanya had her first experience in Tepoz in 2006 and thereafter bought a small property. Fueled by Tanya’s vision, the couple turned the modest initial investment in a neglected plot of land into the sprawling, integrated, meticulously landscaped estate that it is today. I had the good fortune to meet Paul and hear their story firsthand. He’s a lovely guy, and I could see after our short chat why the team at LBV are so exceptional. He and Tanya lead by example. I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone at the hotel (especially the patient young woman who willed a taxi into existence this morning when the heavy rain caused several to cancel - I made my flight!), I wish everyone good health and an easy and swift transition back to normalcy, and I look forward to returning one day soon. -Adam

Have been here before to take in the beautiful scenery and food that was highly recommended and it was good at that time. But this was before the resort (hotel and restaurant) began its collaboration with “Tesoros de México Hoteles y Restaurantes” a boutique hotel chain in Mexico. Since being encompassed into this chain of Tesoros the restaurant has gone down hill with sub standard food experience, from both the service of staff that seemed uninterested to even serve. While mainly the food was more like a 2-star hotel standard than a gourmet restaurant or even a 4-star resort & spa that they quote and holds themselves supposedly too. I would avoid for the time being until the resort improves its restaurant quality.

We went to enjoy the views and tranquility of the place have supper with the family. We had been previously but on this occasion the food was VERY POOR. Most of the dishes we tried were not good to eat. A place like this needs to step up their cuisine to make a truly great experience for guests. Unfortunately we will think twice before going again to eat.

I went for a 5 day yoga retreat by myself, and never wanted to leave. Already planning my next trip back! The hotel arranged for my ride to pick me up and drop me off at the airport. The wife met me in the airport and her husband drove, and they were just the sweetest couple. The property itself is breathtaking with the mountains in the background. I was in the colibri suite and it was so clean and comfortable. The food was amazing! I could order to my room or the pool if I wanted. The staff were so accommodating. The yoga classes were the best I’ve ever had, and pushed my body to achieve poses I had never tried before. Meditation classes everyday. I learned so much about yoga, meditation, and myself on this trip. I’m just so grateful for this experience, and safety was a big thing for me, which I felt completely safe as a young solo female traveler. The pools, the spa, everything was just perfect and the most relaxing vacation I could have asked for!

Hotel grounds and property was spectacular! Gardens, pool, spa rooms beautiful. However service wasn’t so great and lack of English speaking staff was slightly problematic. They’d find some one who did speak English to help. Restaurant simple things were lacking (salt & pepper on the table), cream and sugar with your coffee. Breakfast open and ready at 8am. Was also very frustrated that our room wasn’t cleaned on the second day of our stay. By the time we got to the room it was too late. Also our room was a bit small & zero sound proofing.

Dear Sara, Thank you for your comments which have been shared across all respective departments for further investigation and corrective action. Each and every guest is of paramount importance to us and although we note your highly favourable remarks about our property, facilities and gardens, we are conscious of the need to consistently maintain our quality standards of service. We also note your remark about the size of your room and would only add that we provide a choice from a variety of rooms and suites to meet the needs and requirements of each individual guest. Although each room is adequately soundproofed against any noise from within the hotel, we do recognise that excessive noise from the occasional Saints Day celebration within the town can carry across into the Sacred Valley of Atongo where we are situated.
