"This was our second time staying at Castillo del Mar and we loved every minute of it. This trip we brought two teen girls with us that practically lived in the swimming pool which is surrounded by tables, chairs and loungers and is such a relaxing and welcoming space. We ate many of our meals out on the oversized patio - there are tables and seating galore! The house is equipped with lots of games, a large TV in the living room loaded with movies, and a good library of books - all of which we enjoyed. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean, the housekeeper obviously takes pride in her work! The large king beds are super comfortable and nicely appointed with high quality bedding.
The views from the patio, kitchen and living room and also the bedrooms are of the beautiful Caribbean Sea and since we can never get enough of it, Castillo del Mar is perfect, for sunrise viewing and ocean watching!
We liked the neighbourhood very much and would walk each morning along the sea and then through the colonia. This area has lots of restaurants nearby and we felt very safe - always.
I read the review below this one, and it just doesn't seem to 'fit' with the area and how we saw it. For one, when we entered up the stairs through the locked gate and onto the poolside terrace, we felt very private and well protected. Also the house has many locks and we always felt completely safe. Although it is unfortunate, construction is an ongoing event on the island, but that is not something that can be controlled. We were glad to meet the neighbours and the owners of the new house that was recently constructed next door. It is very nice and adds an upscale feel to the neighbourhood with their tiled mural above the pool and super friendly owners.
Thank you Phil and Bernadette for sharing your Isla home with us! Would we return to Castillo del Mar? To the wide open views of the Caribbean Sea? To those large, comfy beds? To that chef's kitchen and to those loungers and pool? Yes we would! In a heartbeat."

"The house is actually nothing like the pictures....its ten times better!! The dining room table is the most amazing table I have ever seen and can seat as many as you can bring!! The kitchen is beautiful and has everything you need for a gourmet meal or to make a light snack or lunch by the pool. The rooms are all a good size for sharing and have comfortable beds. Each bedroom inside the main house (and there are 3) has a private bathroom. There are two other bedrooms in the casita in the back of the main house that has one bathroom. The pool and swim up pool bar are simply amazing!!! We had a couple of naps taken while swinging the in the hammocks by the pool or lounging on the large bed. The house has amazing sunsets and overlooks the ocean which is just across the street. The house is just amazing and anyone would be blessed and fortunate to stay there, but David is simply wonderful and takes care of every need before you even need it! Amira is a fabulous chef and we had some of the best meals on our vacation at the house. The chicken in green sauce and the house salad will be missed on a daily basis!! She prepared delicious dishes for our breakfast every morning and fresh ceviche for our lunches by the pool. David is just so gracious and makes the entire experience wonderful. We had some issues with a golf cart that wouldn't work and he was nice enough to help us get another one. My only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer!! I would choose to stay at this lovely home any time!! Thank you David and Amira for an amazing bachlorette trip!!!!!"

"We really enjoyed our time with great friends. We couldn't have asked for a better Property Manager than Monica. She did everything she said she would. This was the most stress free vacation we've had to Isla. Monica handled everything from buying our groceries, arranging our transfers from and back to the airport as well as arranging our golfcarts. We can't wait to go back."
