About Ur Vistahermosa

The remarkable peak in Reproductive Medicine is linked to research, scientific and technological advances, current social demand, and the joint work of multiple professionals to achieve a full-term pregnancy and have a healthy baby at home. That is what we aim at in UR VISTAHERMOSA. All this has been possible thanks to:

* Hospital environment: which in addition to providing security, trust and tranquility within the framework of personalized 24-hour care, it has a continuous investment and large-scale healthcare innovation, based on various medical technologies, healthcare architecture and engineering. Also organizational systems of information and communication, applied to high-quality in patient care. UR Vistahermosa is located in Alicante in Spain. This is a private clinic and was opened in 1983 and so has been established for a number of years.

* Technological advances: sophisticated technological equipment (Embryoscope, Geri, Eeva), give information to the specialists about the environment in which the embryo grows, facilitating the observation of its development and monitoring its evolution, which greatly increases the possibilities of selecting the ones with greater implantation potential . The best ones will be transferred to the maternal uterus and thus we will achieve the desired ongoing pregnancy. In addition we offer sperm selection techniques as MACS.

* Specialized Units: formed of professionals specialized in the treatment of: 

- Embryonic Implantation Failures and Repeat Abortions 

- Immunological Study of Implantation 

- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome 

- Low Ovarian Reserve 


In this concept of comprehensive care present in our units, you can request personalised advice with the following specialities: 

-Own Genetics Unit 

- Psychological Support Unit 

- UR Nutritional Plan 

* Donor allocation: In processes as delicate as those of assisted reproduction, the safety and control of the processes is very important. With our artificial intelligence platform our team of doctors and embryologists can select in an objective and scientific way the ideal donor for their patients, minimizing human error in the selection. TRIPLE FILTER (phenotypic, genetic and biometric compatibility) 

* Scientific and quality area: we have our own department to promote scientific publications and studies in the field of assisted reproduction. 

* Payment facilities and own financing. You will have discount plans and own financing customized according to your needs. 

*Benefits for international patients 

We believe that patients who undergo fertility treatment need, in addition to the application of the most advanced technology, to feel accompanied throughout the process. For this reason, they will have a coordinator from the international department who will be in charge of dealing with the specific case and answer your questions at all times. This coordinator will be the link between patients and the medical team and will support the patient in each step of the treatment. To facilitate the process and organization, the International Department deals with: 

-Management of accommodation: we offer various agreements with hotels of all categories. 

-Car transfer management: we help our patients in airport-hotel-clinic transfers. 

*For our team, each patient is unique and our priority is to guarantee healthcare excellence with the best success rates. Because we are sure of the quality of our work, we offer our patients different Guarantee programs: 

• Money back up to 100%, if you can't have a newborn baby. 

• ALL included in a fixed price, without surprises, except pre-tests. 

• No waiting lists. 

• Medication included. 

Our goal will always be to achieve the desired pregnancy in the shortest possible time, that is why the acceptance to the different programs is subject to the advice and approval by the medical team and the exclusion criteria established in each of the programs. 

The clinic focuses a great deal on quality and safety and is audited regularly. It has a number of accreditations including that of the National External Quality Control Programme of Assisted Reproduction Laboratories (CEIFER), Spanish External Quality Control Programme for Semen Analysis (CEIFER) as well as ISO accreditation ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001.

She was so kind and pleasant to talk to over the phone

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

I contacted this clinic to find out more information as I have one failed IVF cycle in which I travelled to India to do. I spoke with Marta and she was amazing. Ivf is a very difficult situation to go through and it's emotionally draining and not easy to talk about with anyone at times. Marta helped alot and she was so kind and pleasant to talk to over the phone and WhatsApp as I'm based in the UK. The Dr had a look at my documents and test results from the UK and India and was able to advise me what to do. I think I will most definitely start my next IVF or Icsi cycle with this clinic as I already feel comfortable with them and that was all done to Marta. Once corona has gone and the world is back to normal I will look to arrange my flights and start the process with this clinic. Marta, you have been a true star and I look forward to meeting you in person.

They even made me smile in what is and can be a stressful decision

5 50 Fertility Specialist Consultation • Paid: 3000 €

I am only just starting my treatment with this clinic, embryo adoption. I had a Skype call initially and I can’t fault them, they really care about their patients and what they do. I asked so many questions and they had so much time for me, unlike other clinics. They even made me smile in what is and can be a stressful decision.

I flew out to them for my first appt on Monday 2nd and the moment I walked through that door and met my patient coordinator and the doctors I knew that my gut feeling was right about this place. I don’t know what the outcome will be. I pray for a miracle, but one thing I am sure of is that I could not have chosen a better place to go on this journey. This will be my second treatment, my first one was in the UK. Had I known about this place I never would have done any treatment in the UK. Thank you for making this journey so much easier. I pray for my little miracle which I would treasure for eternity.

To have a treatment here is really worth it

5 50 FET - Frozen Embryo Transfer • Paid: 800 €

Frozen embryo transfer. I had my second frozen embryo transfer. This is the third time I attend the Hospital UR Vistahermosa for treatment. I had my baby born in 2016 from 2 surplus embryos left from my first fresh egg donation and I finally transferred the other 2 left. Now I´m expecting to confirm again my pregnancy result.

To have a treatment here is really worth it.

This Hospital UR Vistahermosa is highly recommended for those who are looking for real success rates, good treatments and technologies advantages. We had our first egg donation in 2015 and 2 frozen transfer later I already have one baby and I´m expecting to know the pregnancy result of my last embryo transfer. All the hospital UR Vistahermosa staff are fantastic, very comprehensive and very helpful. They made us feel very confident and comfortable.

They were always very helpful and attentive from the first contact

5 50 FET - Frozen Embryo Transfer

I am 43 years old and wanted to try again with my own eggs. After a very clarifying consultation with the doctor, I understood that I needed egg donation. The procedure was very fast, as they don´t have a waiting list for donors.

I recommend all those women who are frustrated because they don't achieve their pregnancy because this clinic is trustworthy, clear and very experience. The treatment I received was excellent. Very recommended.

My experience was very good with all the staff, as they were always very helpful and attentive from the first contact. During the consultation there, during the whole treatment answering all my concerns very quickly and of course during the embryo transfer. When I was pretty nervous they allowed me to take my time and performed a very pleasant embryo transfer.

I managed to fall pregnant twice and I’m very happy with the outcomes

5 50 Embryo Donation

I received an embryo donation at this clinic. They were the most responsive and supportive clinic I contacted, so I decided to go with them. I managed to fall pregnant twice and I’m very happy with the outcomes.

The staff at the clinic are really professional and I was pleased with the facilities and the location. I paid the price that was listed on the website and had to return for follow-ups twice. I’m 100% satisfied with the results. I think they were fantastic and anyone considering this type of treatment should pay them a visit.

I am completely delighted

Fertility Specialist Consultation

I visited Ur Vistahermosa in Alicante twice within a year period for embryo adoption IVF. I was unable to use my own eggs due to my age. I did this as a single person. I answered a questionnaire and provided bloods and other necessary medical tests. Vistahermosa was fairly inexpensive for this procedure compared to some other Spanish IVF centres. The treatment process was fairly straightforward and the staff at the other end of email always gave prompt, polite and helpful replies. I asked for a Skype interview with the consultant which was arranged free of charge. I was able to purchase medications directly from the clinic for a very reasonable price (much cheaper than UK) and delivered to UK very promptly. A word of warning regarding the protocol instructions. It is important to take time reading and ensure you have the correct understanding as broken English translation of even just a word phrasing could lead to easy misinterpretations and the onus is on the patient to ensure a full understanding. You must order enough medications having done your own cycle calculations. Don't rely on the clinic to get this right for you, this is your responsibility. Also the booster injection does not come with English instructions. You can download an English PDF version online and take it to your GP or nurse.

After researching many options I chose Spain as I did not wish to have an egg donor but wanted to give life to existing embryos from a couple. Spain is one of the few countries offering this, as perhaps as a Catholic country it values the sanctity of human life- beginning at conception. You will be picked up from the airport by a taxi driver or a member of clinic staff and taken to your hotel. The clinic will give you a list of hotels in the area to choose from (you will get a discount at the hotel) if you do not wish to select your own hotel. You will then be picked up the following morning by the clinic staff and taken to clinic for a short half hour procedure. With waiting and travel time it takes only half a day (a morning) and you are back at your hotel to rest for a few hours. You are ready to fly home the following day or choose to spend some days in Spain. I would personally recommend this for relaxation and maximal chance of implantation, but no swimming or hot sun bathing. Overall a fabulous experience and for me a blessing to have my amazing and stunningly gorgeous twin girls now 9 months old and very healthy. They have my eye and hair colour and as I am half Italian have the same Mediterranean look as me, whether this was random, clever matching or epigenetics, no matter, I am completely delighted and cannot thank Ur Vistahermosa enough for assisting to make it possible for this miracle blessing to happen. I would definitely recommend this clinic.

Damn good

5 50 Fertility Specialist Consultation • Paid: 6200 €

I'm a 46 year-old single woman. After a failed attempt last year using double donor through a UK fertility clinic I decided to look elsewhere for better treatment at a more affordable price. I researched lots of clinics, spoke to friends and friends of friends, and I always kept coming back to Ur Vistahermosa because of the reviews, friend recommendations and prices.
This clinic was by far a better experience with more to the treatment than I was offered previously such as an endometrial scratch (the previous clinic didn't even offer that so I was unaware of the benefits of the procedure!). I went through the usual hormone replacement cycle which was easy enough. Given that the clinic is in Spain I was unable to keep flying out so I went to a private London clinic (I live in London) that UrV work with for the endo scratch and pre transfer scan (at extra cost).
The donors (chosen by the clinic) managed to produce six wonderful blastocysts for me so this time I am able to freeze some for the future!! I am currently waiting for D-Day to tell me whether attempt no 2 has been successful. Fingers crossed :-).
Alicante is a wonderful city so my two visits there (the initial recce and then the transfer) were like mini breaks so the extra cost for those didn't seem a burden. Overall I still spent less than the whopping GBP7000 I spent last year!!

Can't recommend Ur Vistahermosa highly enough. Staffed by genuine, kind, honest and efficient people and doctors, this clinic is top quality. Its website is accurate. Itziar was excellent at translating for the doctor during our skype conversation and answered every email promptly. She is great: patient and caring :-). They can't perform miracles of course but they have a damn good try! Thank you Ur Vistahermosa.

You will not find a better team to take you on your journey to parenthood

5 50 Embryo Donation, Egg Donation • Paid: 6800 €

I had embryo donation at the last minute as had planned egg donation due to age (42) but had no fertilised eggs by day 3 due to issue with partner's sperm. UR were amazing; organised the embryo donation right away so that there was no delay to my treatment and I was able to go ahead with the transfer on the planned date of 16 January 2016. Had 3 x day 5 frozen donated embryos transferred. Fantastic treatment, very personal and caring, clinic spotless and extremely professional yet friendly. Answered all questions thoroughly and always there to help. Best you could wish for in a very emotional and challenging time

We researched thoroughly many clinics all over Europe and Cyprus. We chose UR because they were the most responsive, informative, professional, helpful, supportive and caring from day 1! Never a delay in response to our many questions, always available to help and very caring. We were very impressed and continue to be by their consistent excellent service and ongoing support. Could not wish for better staff and excellent, spotlessly clean facilities. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone considering treatment. They are excellent in every way and great value for money. Thank you so much to each member of the team as every one of you has been fantastic throughout this very emotional time. The clinic was very patient when my bank transfer payment was delayed by my bank. They remained very helpful and patient with our many, many questions. They responded super fast every time we contacted them. They made us feel very confident and well looked after and they really do care about each patient. Their language skills are excellent so you have nothing to worry about there. Our egg donor had given eggs successfully twice before. UR successfully gathered 8 healthy eggs from her for our cycle. They kept us fully informed throughout the whole process. Very sadly, only 2 eggs fertilised due to an undiagnosed issue with my partner's sperm (Spermogram done in France not at the clinic). We were devastated when we found out and UR sent a taxi to pick us up and meet with the doctors to understand more straight away. They arranged taxis to/from the clinic from our accommodation for all of our visits free of charge) Very sadly we ended up with no embryos to transfer by day 3. However the clinic explained all of our options very clearly and organised donated frozen embryo transfer with donor matches right away so we could proceed with a transfer on the planned date. Since my return home they have been super supportive and caring. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about them, only go for it, you will not find a better team to take you on your journey to parenthood. I even received personal congratulations from them individually when I got my positive result. Early days yet but hopeful. Simply, the best!!!

We had a wonderful treatment. I was a bit nervous because we did an egg donation before in other clinic an it was negative, but here they helped me going through the process, it was easy. The medication was easy. We are now waiting for our results...
Everyone in the Clinic Vistahermosa treated us so kindly and helped us with everything, from the first consultation and still after the embryo trasnfer. When we went for the embryo transfer, everyone was so nice which gave us the calm that we needed. I hardly recommend this Clinic to everyone
