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

This place is magical. I was there in March for a yoga retreat and I was impressed by the quality of the acomodation and the high level of care for every details in the location.
The hotel is nested in a lush garden, filled with beautiful plants and flowers, together with lovely decorations from all over the world. The food is fresh (some ingredients come from their garden) and delicious and all the staff of the hotel is very kind and welcoming.
It is the perfect place for relaxation and restore, especially if the stay there is combined with yoga classes and treatments at the spa (the massage was excellent)

Everything about the retreat was planned and organized to give the participants the best experience. A variety of classes were offered throughout the weekend and catered to all levels of physical and spiritual practice. The yoga facilities are exceptional in both space and comfort.
I would comment that the vegetarian meals were lacking in variety and were bland in taste and texture. Perhaps a change of menu is in order for the next retreat.
My suite was beautiful, large and luxurious..couldn't ask for better. The grounds and the actual setting is beyond beautiful. I love the way the resort is made for meandering around, looking at the grounds, enjoying a swim, dinner in the restaurant, a drink at the bar..all in all a first rate experience.

Everything they claim is false… the services is bad, the infrastructure is insufficient and they don’t look up for your safety WARNING!

The the horse rinding trip we booked with the hotel was a safety disaster, first the taxi driver (booked by the hotel) was reluctant to drive us for the price the gave them and he made the trip very uncomfortable and made us feel very unsafe, then he drove us to a ranch with hundreds of empty cans of beer all over the place, the ranch was open with no people there just horses… there was no one there just the bottles and some dogs I called the hotel and the people who answers said the hotel spa was responsible not the hotel and that some body will come to get us, when I talked to the people in the spa they didn’t care…

Then the basics of a hotel, you have to ask for everything from room cleaning the cable of the speaker the put in the room, not to mention coffee filters for the coffee machine.

Infrastructure the credit card terminals don’t work, you have to pay everything in the front desk.

The offer you things they don’t have like “cafe de la olla” and the tortilla soup is not the one described in the menu.

So to be safe don’t book anything with them cause they don’t care about you, and It you stay here be prepared to have a painful experience.

We arrived 2.45pm, ordered right away and were not served until 1 hour later after having spoken with the manager a couple of times because we were there with a little kid who was super hungry and a baby. Neither did we get any appetizer or bread during this time.
At last, food wasn’t good, everything seemed pre-prepared, avocado was already hard on the outside, fish was clearly frozen and not well unfrozen, rice was microwaved; or done in a rush.
Place and garden are beautiful but the restaurant is tremendously expensive considering the quality of the food and service.
Hopefully this was a one time overcrowded afternoon and is not the regular experience at Buena Vibra

Greetings, dear traveler. We greatly appreciate your comment, as it allows us to identify our areas of opportunity. We are glad that the place and the garden have been to your liking. Regarding the rest, we offer you a sincere apology for the presentation of the dishes, and the delivery time. We may have found ourselves overcrowded, however to address this we have increased our restaurant staff as well as implemented trainings. We hope you can offer us a second chance to make them fall in love with the quality of our service and very soon our new menu. Good vibes!

We held our wedding event at La Buena Vibra Hotel & Spa on Nov 5, 2022 and it was magic, exactly what we dreamed of having. The chapel area seated our guests for the service, the lawn was used for cocktails, and a tent with tables was set up for the meal. Wedding cake and champagne was served under the fireworks. The meal was fabulous as was the service. Our event was a dream come true!

Don’t let the bone-shaking roads of this town put you off, once you get past the gates of this lovely hotel, you can enjoy this calm, very well run hotel. The buildings are well designed with spacious bedrooms. The view from our balcony was breathtaking.
The common parts are varied and beautifully furnished.

The service was first class and this is clearly a well-managed business.

You have to experience the Sunday morning breakfast buffet.

In summary, a great hotel. We really enjoyed our stay.

La Buena Vibra is a wonderland of beauty and serenity. My friend and I had the most amazing time. Jamie's yoga classes were definitely the highlight of our trip she is a very knowledgeable and wise teacher and has a loving compassion behind her teachings. If there was one thing that we would need to voice it would only be that there were limited vegan and vegetarian options in the restaurant.

Actually it's very hard to put this place into words, one has to experience it oneself!
This place is magical!
Everybody is so friendly it feels like one is a family member than a hotel guest.
The food was fantastic as well as the waiters. The rooms are so thorougly designed, there are beautiful and very clean.
For me it was hard to leave this place and all those friendly faces!
So I definitely have to come back.

This retreat is the best place to escape for a weekend getaway. I can go on and on but my time staying here we had amazing and friendly service from all the hotel staff, deliciously healthy food, relaxing massages, access to cold plunges/saunas, relaxing by the pool. I would wake up each morning with gorgeous views of the big rocks surrounding this retreat. They also have such amazing yoga classes as well as a meditation room. 10/10 recommend this for anyone who is looking to getaway and unplug. Also the rooms are huge in size and really nice. Will stay here again if I ever find myself in Tepoztlán!
