Lonely Planet review

The Alquimista's excellent accommodations range from thatch-roofed bungalows just off the beach (most with double bed, fan, hot-water bathroom and hammocked porch) to big, bright rooms set back up the luxuriant hillside with ample terraces and king-size beds. Decor is simple and tasteful.

One of Zipolite's best restaurants is here too, as are a good pool and a spa, Espacio Shanti , using locally made organic materials. Daily hatha yoga sessions (M$100/300 per one/four classes) take place in a bright yoga room.

Our independent authors have visited El Alquimista and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Zipolite.
