  • The Best Sunsets!

    "After spending a week at Casa Azul, we just wanted to stay. The owners clearly put their hearts into designing this funky, beautiful, kid-friendly home. Our 2 year old loved being able to go in and out of the gradual-entry pool and exploring all the kids toys. I loved the american-style kitchen will all the amenities I am used to. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all beautiful and very comfortable. But really what takes this place over-the-top are the sunsets over the infinity pool (ok, and sitting on the deck and looking at the stars at night, too). It is super easy to get over to the beach, run into El Tunco for supplies or go over to my favorite restaurant in El Salvador - Ola Beto's, just down the road. The place isn't brand new anymore, and has a bit of wear and tear, but hardly noticed after settling in."

  • Love it and can't wait to come back!

    "I am in my early 40's and well travelled (25+ countries). I am accustom to the quality and cleanliness you find in a 4 or 5 star hotel. My partner and I were very pleased to find The Romantic Casita met our expectations; and the property (grounds, pool, location, view, beach access) easily exceeded our expectations. The casita is a unit attached to the side of a larger home which is also rented out, therefore you will be sharing the grounds and pool with other guests. We expected this and had no issues/concerns/problems etc. Inside the unit we did not hear any noise/sounds from the guests in the larger house. Pros: -comfort/cleanliness -great bed -fantastic view, location, pool, and beach....absolutely stunning -gated community with armed guards -we ordered food (pupusas) from a vendor who came by on his bike - it was a fantastic, inexpensive and a unique service....and delicious -the food at the restaurants at the neighbouring beach (El Parmacito- ask the owners/property manager for directions) was fantastic and inexpensive eg. Breakfast (omelette) and coffee for two was $7 total. These restaurants are huts on the beach, however the food is fresh and restaurant quality. I had a lobster dinner which came with two small lobsters covered in prawns (20 +) with rice, salad, tortilla for $15. -unit has a combination safe -D'Arcy (owner) is excellent at responding quickly to any questions or concerns -Roxanne (ppty mgr) comes by each morning to attend to needs Things to keep in mind: -WIFI signal did not work for us until the last day (on the last day the ppty mgr advised us it works if you place the wifi stick by the window....only then did it work for us). -stairs - there are not a lot of stairs however people with disabilities will find the stairs and pathway to the pool challenging -in a residential area therefore not within walking distance to markets, shops -stop at the market on your way in to pick up groceries (don't forget oil, herbs, charcoal (for the BBQ) etc. -include hand soap, hair dryer, shampoo with the rest of your toiletries -AC is only in the bedroom -ants- this is a tropical destination so you have to expect to have ants, geckos etc. it is part and parcel! (Note: these ants did not bite). However, I recommend more effort be made into controlling them -traps etc. and be prepared to put all food items etc away regularly. This property was stunning and I can not wait to return to it. Highly recommended!"

  • Excellent location, incredible paradisiacal feeling!

    "We stayed at Potopoto for three unforgettable weeks, we came at the end of June when the weather can be rainy or cloudy, instead we got super clear blue skies during the day and fresh rainy nights. The renting transaction was very pleasant communication with the owner was fast and clear throughout. In the house you can immediately notice that the owners have paid attention to detail on the services and utilities it offers. The pool was well maintained and recently cleaned. The grass, palms and gardens were all very good taken care of. What is important to notice is that the rooms were cleaned every morning, and changed sheets every 3 days, each room has its own bathroom which makes a huge difference to other houses in the Costa del Sol. The setup of the house has a bit of a camping ground (ranch) feeling, where you feel the beach and the palms the whole day. The kitchen and eating place sits next to the pool, and the beach literally 50mts. from the pool, this for us was the greatest plus of the house. We will definitely come back, I hugely recommend PotoPoto!"

  • The only sounds are the constant waves and the occasional rooster

    "I stayed at El Jacalito with four friends for the most relaxing, enjoyable two week vacation of my well traveled life. This home is so spacious and comfortable with so many areas to congregate, dine, rest and chat that one feels to have an entire private resort at one's disposal. I loved the kitchen for staging buffet meals, appetizer spreads and quick meals on an impulse. Everything you need is there including candles for atmosphere and many seating options for couples or groups to enjoy. Without the distraction of TV and the internet, I found that we all talked to each other a lot and solved most of the world's problems, created all sorts of DIY craft projects and told adventure stories to each other that were nearly forgotten with our usual busy lives. We relaxed in the pool, the warm ocean and had rounds and rounds of splendid massage from the very kind caretaker who has magical hands. I would recommend a candlelight massage on the top of the the cabana with breezes blowing. Bring your favorite cream or lotion for an unforgettable experience. This is a very family friendly house with plenty of space for everyone. The caretakers are very competent and respectful of your peace and quiet but they are certainly available for any assistance or suggestions that you might need. I will return to this wonderful piece of paradise by the ocean, it would be hard to resist go again, I am making plans already."
