The experience at Palasiet with the spa was excellent.
The programs and treatments are of a high quality and the staff is unbeatable.
Our stay was very good and we want to schedule ourselves to go to this hotel as soon as possible. We'll see when we can come back. Thanks a lot for everything.
Angel, Spain - 25 June 2022
I had a wonderful week. If someone is really looking to get started actively to lose some weight in a short period of time, then the 7-day program at El Palasiet is highly recommended. Not only have I lost 2 kilos in 5 days, I have also been greatly stimulated to pick up a healthy lifestyle again.
In addition, of course, a hotel with great facilities, friendly and very thoughtful staff, for example I was given a delicious lunch on the day of departure.
A few points of attention for everyone who goes, it was no problem for me, but good to pass on to those who go there. People are not equally good at English everywhere but if you just let them know that you don't speak Spanish then you will be well supported. The program is quite full, so take a good look at what really suits you and what you like. Go for a walk just by yourself for an hour every morning, even if there is no walking session, it´s beautiful!
Thank you so much for arranging the trip, I enjoyed it!
M., Netherlands - 14 June 2022
The organisation by SIS was very good, everything was correct and easy.
My first impression on arriving at El Palasiet was that it was a peaceful place, where I could really disconnect and enjoy a few days to myself. The place was elegant (some parts of the hotel were a bit old, but charming and unpretentious), the rooms were spacious and with spectacular views, everything was very clean, the staff was very friendly and the clinic, which has been recently renovated, was beautiful and able to transmit peace.
Achieving goals on a physical, psychological and emotional level, as well as allowing you to change routines and incorporate healthier habits in a progressive and natural way. I believe that all of this is achieved at the Palasiet. Obviously, one week is not enough time, it would be better to spend at least two weeks (ideally even more...) but in just one week you can lay the foundations for a healthy weight loss.
I would have liked to have a bit more free time. The programme is very intensive, which is good, but I would have liked to have had more time to read a book in peace and quiet, and to go for a few more walks on my own.
Apart from the professionalism of the whole team and the feeling of having paid for something that is really worthwhile, I take home with me the fact that I have brought a general awareness of wellbeing, of doing something 100% for myself, which also has a transcendence beyond the days I was there, as it has allowed me to "change" the chip and refocus my eating habits, physical activity and self-care.
As a final comment I have to say that I have been very satisfied with this programme. This type of experience is not cheap, but when you see that what you pay for corresponds to the service you receive, you pay for it with great pleasure and are happy to be doing something good for yourself. I met people of different economic capacities in the hotel and they all agreed that this place is a marvellous place. I am already thinking of going back. I hope they continue like this, working as well as they do and maintaining this level of prices so that not only people with very high purchasing power can have access to it, as happens with other clinics of this style. On the other hand, I would like to comment that, in relation to my request not to have activities too early in the morning, although on the first day they organised the timetable without considering this request due to an internal organisation issue, they immediately reorganised everything to try to please me on this point as well, for which I was very grateful.
Thanks also to you for the little gift of the bag and the bottle and even more for the massage.
Irene, Spain - 24 March 2022
I had such a great holiday in El Palasiet and was totally relaxed during my stay in the hotel.
All the staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the spa and treatments were so relaxing.
My first impression was that the environment was so nice and quiet with the combination of sea and the mountains. It looked like a picture.
The lessons where in Spanish which was a bit too difficult for me to understand. But I have now started to learn online Spanish for my next visit ;-)
It's was the total experience that made it so great. Hotel, spa, food, the staff , the amazing view..
Upon my return I told my friends that I felt like a queen the whole week and this is how I remember my stay.
Joke, Belgium - 26 October 2021
Thank you very much for everything, the organisation was great.
The programme and the hotel were great and the staff very friendly. Overall I am very satisfied. I hope to book with you again.
Rosa, United Kingdom - 16 September 2021
The gardens and swimming pools are very well kept and the surroundings are very beautiful and lots of nature. Tranquility!
Healthy but rich diet, good treatments and exercise. Very complete program with many activities in the hotel.
Marta, Spain - 05 September 2021
I loved the surroundings and also the facilities. The combination of a pleasant and relaxing environment, the effectiveness and quality of the program/treatments, and the feeling of being "accompanied" in the process made my holiday experience unique. My loveliest memory is that of having a well deserved afternoon ´siesta´ in the shade of a tree by the pool after having worked out and trained my body in the morning!
Raquel, Spain - 28 August 2021
The whole organisation of the holiday was very good. The hotel is beautiful and is located in a spectacular location, surrounded by pine trees and 5 minutes from the beach. The food was very good and varied. The service was always very attentive. Yes, we have had relaxation with this wellness programme, the spa circuit is phenomenal as well as the rest of the activities and the staff is always very attentive. I would like to point out that in the current pandemic situation, everything was very well organised and we felt very safe at all times. Thank you very much for everything.
Patricia, Spain - 15 August 2021
I came home totally relaxed. All the staff were very friendly. I will definitely return to El Palasiet with you, I loved the facilities, the food and the views of the sea!
Marta, Spain - 02 July 2021
Very good overall. The hotel and gardens are beautiful and all the facilities, gym, thermal pool etc. offer a beautiful view. The diet is a little plain but effective. Just one evening there was a problem with some raw octopus, but in general food was good. Very friendly and helpful staff.
One remark: the organisation of the treatments and sports activities in our calendar. They should buy a software package that works. On two occasions I had two activities at the same time.
However, very good for exercise, very effective weight loss program, very good teachers.
Benicassim is quite ugly but the walk is very pleasant.
We will be back! Thank you for recommending this site to us.
Isabel, Spain - 17 June 2021
My first impression upon arriving at El Palasiet was that it is very welcoming. Good organization, goal-oriented activity, and feelings of pleasure and well-being. The most beautiful memory that I take from my vacation is enjoying a sunbath in the hammock looking at the sea and the water, with the body worked (exercise and massage) and fed properly.
Rosana, Spain - 12 April 2021
My mom and I had a wonderful week. Everything was well arranged and taken care of. Sometimes a little trouble here and there because not everyone could speak English. But we did figure it out.
The Thalasso center is quite complete with everything it offers. IIf you wnat to go for weight loss, it is advisable to go at least 10 days for an even better effect. In our opinion we were there just too short. Fortunately both still with results. But with a few more days, you can achieve just a little more.
Marlies, Netherlands - 27 July 2020
I feel rejuvenated and refreshed!
Marie, Spain - 02 July 2020
It was exactly what I was hoping for and what I needed! Nice weather, near the sea, nice village, nice hotel, beautiful swimming pools. Very nice staff, who spoke enough English and French. It was a gift for myself, to recharge. So my compliments for the right proposal from you! I was very happy to indicate what I wanted, and that SIS came up with attractive proposals.
Lianna, Netherlands - 11 October 2019
Thank you for the great holiday! Tuesday is the first day of my new job, where I will start with lots of new energy.
I know where to find you for our next trip!
Marjolein, Netherlands - 29 September 2019
The holiday was well prepared by SIS. It’s a beautiful hotel with lovely surroundings and so close to the beach so you can see and hear the sea. The Spa, treatments, food, wine, room were all excellent. We really loved the salt water pools. Didn’t miss anything. The whole experience was a great memory. Many thanks for recommending this hotel/spa!
Mandy, United Kingdom - 22 September 2019
We completely loved our recent holiday and will definitely book again. it felt like a gift to be among the Spaniards who know what self-care is. Every age was there and there was a friendliness and peaceful atmosphere from day 1 and the sea salt therapy is phenomenal as was the gym training and yoga and aqua classes and general swimming outdoors and food was healthy and gorgeous.
Phil, United Kingdom - 15 September 2019
My stay at Hotel El Palasiet has been wonderful, everyone was charming and very professional, I think I will repeat this retreat in the future, thank you very much for everything.
Maria, Spain - 07 September 2019
The hotel and garden is beautiful. In general the service is good. SIS has look after me well and promptly.
Ainhoa, Spain - 19 October 2018
In our quest to find something between a boot camp and a spiritual retreat, we decided upon Thalasso Hotel El Palasiet in Benicassim. It seemed to offer the perfect mix of a structured exercise timetable, dietician-supervised meals and seafront Spa relaxation. On that front, we were not disappointed.
The staff were utterly charming and while some have been disappointed at their lack of English, we both are fortunate enough to speak relatively good Spanish, so no problem. The room, albeit a standard, was huge, spotlessly clean, well-equipped, bright, quiet, and with a comfortable two-metre bed – heaven. The food was beautifully prepared and presented – fresh and healthy. The location is unparalleled, overlooking the sea, and on the doorstep of the Via Verde, an easy-to-follow coastal 5.7km walking/cycling route from Benicassim to Oropesa full of gorgeous views and pretty watchtowers – take a bicycle from reception and off you go. Finally, the building is classical, tasteful and elegant, and the Spa and grounds immaculately maintained – with an almost sub-tropical feel.
It’s reasonable to point out that the average El Palasiet guest is to the senior end of the age spectrum. It’s wonderful to see their commitment to improving their health but, if you’re lucky enough to be more youthful, expect to have to put in your own gym time and fitness programme to supplement the timetabled sessions – if you want the best results. For us the fitness sessions (gym, aqua gym) were far too light but, again, they did suit the majority.
We both stuck rigidly to the programmed menus and activities and lost weight/centimetres and toned up – impressive for just four nights. If we cannot find a better halfway house between boot camp and spiritual retreat, with a slightly higher intensity fitness programme, we will for sure return to El Palasiet.
Sarah & Rosie, Spain - 04 October 2018
I returned home with good impressions of my stay at El Palasiet. The weight- loss program was very intense, but effective and met my expectations. Benicassim is a very beautiful and quiet place and there are a lot of opportunities for sports: running, walking, swimming. There is a good gym at the hotel. Unfortunately there were some problems with communication with the staff, because the employees of the Spa department and of the restaurant mostly spoke only Spanish.
I went to the airport by train from Benicassim to Valencia, it was very simple, and on the way I saw many beautiful places. And than I took in Valencia the metro to the airport. It was not necessary to take a taxi. Thanks for your help.
Olga, Netherlands - 10 July 2018
Lovely! My body feels much better after this yoga week. Mila the yoga teacher was fantastic! Most staff in the hotel does not speak English, but it was no problem, their friendliness made up for that!
Wendy, Netherlands - 16 October 2017
I would rate 10 points to my trip! Everything went great!!! The yoga with Lourdes was excellent, the food amazing and the service very friendly ( and I do not speak Spanish:-)) the hotel room was great, with an ocean view.
Alina F., Switzerland - 29 August 2017
I really had a wonderful week! The accommodation is very nice. The groupclasses and the schedule were good. The sea super beautiful (everywhere in the hotel you enjoy a wonderful sea view! It is quite Spanish, wich I loved. Beautiful how the old pictures and antiques which are around the hotel contribute to an authentic experience. Not everybody speaks English, but that is what I like.
Marguerite, Netherlands - 19 June 2017
It was fantastic! Relaxing, being physically active and healthy eating has never been so easy before! Beautiful location with a stunning sea view. Nice and friendly hotel in a bautiful green garden, not too big and in June still quiet. Located at the start of the ¨Via Verde¨ cycling and walking path, so we used the bikes, which was great! Funny, the hotel is just like a small Spanish museum with all the antique furniture. At the reception English was well spoken and they were very friendly. Massage therapist was amazing! Unfortunately the Spa was fully booked and therefor hard to book any extra treatments, so better to organise this before you arrive. The program is very divers, it has a bit of everything, some relaxing and some physical activities. And again very well organised by SIS.
Sandra, Netherlands - 12 June 2017
A complete experience, I will return!
Helen, France - 07 November 2016
Both hotel staff and SIS staff were extremely supportive, understanding and helpful.

Emma, Spain - 29 August 2016
This is a very good package. The treatments were all superb. I really enjoyed my stay and would return to this hotel!
Trish, United Kingdom - 01 August 2016
Overall we had a very enjoyable and relaxing time and have come home refreshed. The treatments were extremely professional and enjoyable, the staff friendly, especially our yoga instructor.
Marlene, United Kingdom - 01 August 2016
I had a truly wonderful, relaxing and pampering experience, full of activities and great fun. Excellent staff, high quality facilities, treatments and activities.
Lorella, United Kingdom - 12 July 2016
We enjoyed a really lovely stay at El Palasiet. The hotel is well maintained and the staff well organized and attentive. The treatments were a delight and what stood out for us was just how professional the therapists are. The gardens are beautifully kept. The thalasso centre and the treatments exceeded our expectations, we would definitely recommend El Palasiet and we also plan to return!
The only comment we could make regarding improvement would be the with the food as we believe it could have been better.
Mª Angeles, Spain - 05 July 2016
We had an absolutely fantastic time. The hotel was lovely, the spa and treatments amazing and the food great!! A big thank you for organising our holiday.
Sarah, United Kingdom - 30 March 2016
Very nice way to get fit again and at the same time reduce excessive stress through enjoyable exercise and relaxation!
Theo, Netherlands - 25 September 2015
Even after three visits there in the space of 13 months (!!) I am still really pleased and satisfied the hotel and progam,
Sheila, Spain - 01 September 2015

Anouk B., Netherlands - 15 July 2015
Daniela, Russian Federation - 08 September 2014
It was absolutely wonderful! I loved it, and my husband too enjoyed it very very much. The hotel is just fantastic, great decor, a REAL place, ever so slightly old-fashioned, but very well kept, loved the restaurant atmosphere, you feel you are in an older Spain... the staff there are absolutely lovely. We would definitely consider returning to El Palasiet next year.
S.Leary, France - 21 August 2014
I 've had a wonderful (and intensive) week. Beautiful location, sea view was amazing. Also no mass tourism which is also enjoyable. I thought it was very intensive and sometimes the program was a bit tight (with changing in between sports and treatments). But here again nice to get a nice gym (with a view and no sweat air) and the range of activities was wide.
Ans, Netherlands - 30 June 2014
I spent a week here alone as a treat to myself, well I certainly got it a good stay, massage, pool, spa, more massage, a low calorie diet ... A physical and mental cure needed in these busy times we live in.
Meritxell, Spain - 31 January 2014
We felt truly pampered. Superior service in a beautiful environment. We will definitely return.
Marcela, Italy - 23 January 2014
The Palasiet is a special place. It is so beautiful and so peaceful. It was the perfect place for us. We were looking for a Mediterranean hotel where we could relax and "be healthy". The Palasiet brought that to us and much more. We enjoyed the food, which was delicious and very healthy; the massages and spa treatments were fantastic; and our room had the most fabulous and romantic view. It is perfect for relaxing. We loved it and we are planning to go back soon!
F.D, United States - 10 January 2014
The hotel is in a lovely position on hillside with beautiful views of the hotel pool and sea. The hotel itself is like going back to the old beautiful Spain as I remember when I was a child. To me it seemed rustic and charming, the rooms are clean and has all that you need. The pool area is lovely and peaceful. The staff are lovely, most only speak a little English but I like that, the spa is also very nice.
Mary, United Kingdom - 01 November 2013
This hotel is an oasis, with exceptional sea views. A place to recharge the batteries before returning to the daily grind. The family atmosphere gives a special charm.
Jorge, Spain - 10 October 2013
After a hard year, El Palasiet has been the perfect place to forget about the daily problems and just focus on health, relax and fun in such a great city as Benicassim is. The room was really big, had an amazing view of the sea. The staff were charming, and took constant care of our needs. The Spa and the offer of massages is outstanding, and has a great price-quality relation.
