Everything is always wonderful when I stay in Longevity Vilalara. It was my 3rd time I don't think I will try anywhere else. It was so nice to be welcomed back by the staff, everybody there is so friendly and nothing is ever too much for them. All I can say is Go! You will love it!
Visited February 2018
We can’t think of better destination to do a Detox! The liquid diet was surprisingly easy to follow and everything was simply delicious. We both achieved great results. The hotel is stunning and the specialists are friendly and caring. It was great to be there in February, as it was peaceful and relaxing – paradise!
Visited September 2017
Wonderful holiday! Members of staff are very friendly and helpful, accommodation is stunning – truly 5 stars – and the food is outstanding. Spa treatments were the best part of the holiday! Health and Fitness Travel was great at suggesting and organising all for me.

The Spa and members of staff are truly amazing! They have gone the extra mile to make sure my stay was as comfortable as possible! All my treatments and times were arranged according to my needs. Perfect, from start to finish.

The medicine aspect of the resort is really great for individuals with specific physiological ailments.
