"We'd love to tell you all a bunch of lies so that no one else ever goes and we can keep this gem a secret to make sure it's always open and available just for US ~ !! But that wouldn't be very nice now, would it? Ok, Ok, we'll give you the true skinny ...
The pictures are true to form ... the first one with the flowers is from the patio which flows right out onto beautiful sand. It's a short jaunt toward the ocean to get to the pool with beautiful lounging chairs for superb whale watching. Or you can step off the pool deck and walk to the ocean's edge and stroll along the beach.
The unit is spacious and delightful, it feels just like home. The two big bedrooms, each with a large bathroom including fabulous showers and large tubs were wonderful. The kitchen is large with everything you need for cooking and serving. It was perfect for two couples traveling together.
There are more typical ocean resorts on each side of Terrasol, like hotels, crowded living ... all inclusives. And yes, great for some, but if you want a "get away from the world" feel to your vacation, this would be a better choice. Remember this is ocean side, so no getting in the water.
We rented a car and stopped at Costco and Walmart on the drive to Terrasol to buy breakfast, lunch, and snack foods ... don't forget the Malibu coconut rum for your Cabo Sunset cocktails (mix with vodka, orange juice, and cranberry juice ~ you can thank me later :))
For dinners, you can take your fresh caught fish with you to dinner at any restaurant and for $6 a plate they will cook it up to your preference (blackened, yum yum!) and serve it along with rice and veggies. Of course, this means you'll want to book your fishing excursion on day one. We used Victor Santi and are happy to recommend him: http://santisportfishing.com/
We loved our (tough) hike through the rocks to Lover's beach and back up over the mountain peaks to Locals beach. Snorkeling at Chileno bay was amazing. The whales from Terrasol were amazing. Just perfect.
We understand Terrasol might have its own desalinization plant, but whether or not, we all drank the water at the resort with absolutely no ill effects. The unit had a small bottle of fruit and vegetable wash that we used, but you might want to bring some with you. We also hope the owners are able to get the outside hot tub back up and running soon as that would have been a nice extra touch.
Enjoy ~ we'll be wishing we were with you!"
