“found myself”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

I went to Amansala a few years back in October of 08. Recently single I thought I would try the solo travel thing. This place was a dream come true. From the location to the staff to the amazing fresh food. All of the classes were optional so you didnt feel pressured to partake, but it was well worth every cent. I met amazing women from all over the world. I had a roommate from singapore that wound up staying in tulum for a few years. This is one place I wish I never had to leave. If you require air conditioning this place is not for you. You dont need it being your rooms are litteraly on the beach. You get the beautiful breeze, but watch out for the mosquitos. Bring Deet!!!

I do not have time nor space to do this place justice and express just how wonderful it is there. I will definitely go back - most of the people there were repeat customers. The combination of fantastic food, exercise, massage and the most positive trainers and hotel staff you will ever meet means you leave this place feeling fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone, but particularly ladies travelling alone as there is a great sense of comradery.

... Hotels in at the caribbean should be. Very laid- back, nice and friendly stuff (mostly north- American). The food is awesome and the beach... Well, how to describe the beach? Endless? Just how a beach should be? It's picturesque, you can walk there for hours and can't get tired of it... Something like a bikini- bootcamp might sound appalling to some Europeans (at least I was sceptic), but its a cool thing and didn't disturb me and my friends at all! So if you are looking for a perfect Caribbean experience- here you go!

Honestly, I have only good things to say. I don't know how anyone could ever rate this place negatively. The proof is obvious when the majority of the Bikini bootcampers who were with me were coming back for a repeat visit, one had just been there 3 weeks prior!
The staff is amazing, and bend over backwards to constantly offer words of encouragement and help. The food is delicious. The rooms are rustic, but right on the ocean, and adequate. I felt like I was immersed in nature, and the sounds of the ocean cleansed my soul with each breaking wave.

Every day began with journal writing (which I have to admit, I didn't do), then an hour long walk on the beach, followed by a 20-30 minute quick workout on the beach. We then had breakfast, which was fresh fruit, granola and yogurt, followed by an egg. After a short break, we had an excursion, that included exercise, such as biking to the Tulum ruins or hiking up a pyramid in Coba. Some days we just had an exercise class. We then had lunch, which was usually a salad with fish. We then had free time for a few hours, to get a massage, have a private lesson, or just chill on the beach. This was followed by two more classes of exercise. Nothing was mandatory, but everything was fun. Kiya, Josh and Jason are amazing. I lost some weight and have now incorporated exercise into my life. I can't wait to go back.

They say that nothing equals your first time...but this was my second stay at Bikini Bootcamp and was impressed by the improvement in the level of service, staff, food and instruction. The rooms are roomier and more comfortable, the staff more galvanized and full service, the spa treatments remain unparalleled and i loved the boutique :) Despite the rainy weather, spirits and hospitality remained high and it was another amazing transformational week. If you really want to unplug from the grid, free your mind and get into your body, Amansala is the place. Already planning to return in early 2012.

Room Tip: Be specific in your needs eg if you want an ocean view, no stairs etc
