"If you want to go to paradise and depart with a longing to stay knowing you will have a transformative experience this is where you need to go. My wife and I are nature enthusiasts and like to be around people that have a similar "warm and fuzzy" side particularly if it is genuine and sincere. This place gets into your blood immediately upon arrival. From those born to Costa Rica to those who have become expat's the experience is uniformly gracious, caring and service oriented. Our hostess, the great and wonderful Ashley, anticipated our concerns and truly went the extra mile seemingly what she just does naturally. She even arranged a chef on our last evening for an 'in bungalow' feast that rivaled the excellent on site and area restaurants. Chris (the chef) is beyond description. He is personable, a great food educator with world experience, who felt like a natural member of the family as he did on site creations we have not seen. Chris, the eggs diablo were like nothing I have ever partaken! I didn't know you could do that with anchovies! The most disappointing part of Casa Del Mar was leaving. Colleen and I are both psychiatrists and we can find no better antidepressant than the PEOPLE and resort of Casa Del Mar!!!
Thank you and Bless You, Ashley, Chris and Dave (and David, our beach concierge, who never played Bocce Ball but is a natural!). We'll be back!!!"
