    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!

    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!
