Lovely quiet unpretentious hotel. Our vegetarian cuisine was outstanding - unique flavours, healthy but not boring. Excellent coffee. Accommodation is clean, basic but comfortable. Staff responded readily to any request.

Rose was surely one of the sweetest and kindest hosts I met on my 3 weeks travel. Such a sweetheart who cares for her guests in such a lovely way you almost feel home. The room was clean and nice with a big cozy bed and a great view from the shared terrace. There are so many spots in this...

I visited in off season so it wasn't full. I attended the silent retreat next door. The hotel staff are very friendly. The grounds and rooms are kept clean. I stayed in a bungalow that was big enough for me, had everything I needed. Bed wasn't super comfortable but it was ok. The views are breathtaking.

Last year I stayed at Arigalan for almost three weeks and fell in love with my room and the view. This year I stayed again at Arigalan, this time for three months. It is a kind of simple, but beautiful property. I loved my Cabana and the ocean view. The terrace above my room was my favorite spot to hang...

The hotel has an amazing view and location being on a cliff overlooking the location. It seems rather pricey for what it is, relatively old, and they have a great business serving the people in meditation retreat at the center next door. El hotel tiene vistas super padres, esta sobre un acantilado con la vista del mar. Parece bastante caro...

I chose the Arigalan due to its close proximity to the Hridaya Yoga centre where I had signed up for a 3 day silent retreat. Here at the Arigalan I found much more than a place to stay, I discovered a little piece of paradise. The Arigalan, set atop a hill provided panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding terrain...

This is physically closest to Hridaya Yoga. That's about it. The rooms are minimally furnished. Noisy AC in bungalows. There is a shared kitchen on site. Walking distance away, Mazunte and San Agustinillo are better choices if you'd like to be close to the ocean, restaurants, tiendas. If you stay at Arigalan expect to pay your full bill, in cash...

I was blessed with the opportunity to stay at hotel Arigalan for one month while completing module one at neighboring Hridaya Yoga. Here I found the quiet, comfortable space I was seeking during my journey. Waking to the sunrise outside my door every morning was beyond beautiful along with the views provided from each level of the hotel. (Roof top...

Rose and her staff are amazing in their attention to detail and kindness. They really go out of their way to do their best to make your stay a positive experience. And It truly comes from the heart. I stayed in the darkroom as well as in the regular rooms. The darkroom has been thoughtfully designed to provide a safe...

This is a quiet, lovely place with great views. The bungalows all have hammocks in front tho there isn't much privacy with people walking back and forth all the time. It's strange, though, that the bungalows are so ugly inside (hence 4 rather than 5 stars). I suppose most people spend their time outdoors but it's nice to retire in...

“Bungalows are regular size rooms facing the ocean, cabanas are smaller but adequate, larger rooms are available with private pools (the top one of the 3 is the nicest with good views).”
