          The views and the staff and accommodation and the meditation hill are just a few of the endearing features of Shambhala. The detail in the pathways and adorable buildings speaks of love and attention. You must make this a stay on your journey into Mexicos...More

          It's dirty, uncomfortable, but the worst part is the terrible service they have, you couldn't pay me to stay there again.

          Response from gottakeepup, Public Relations Manager at Gloria's Shambhala

          We're sorry you had a less than pleasant experience at Shambhala. During your visit we were recovering from Hurrican Carlotta, which struck Playa Zipolite in June of 2012. We continue to recover from the property damage the hurricane brought.
