"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."

"I can't praise our experience here enough! Casa Jaguar is incredibly beautiful and our group of 9 was extremely comfortable. Sue and Miguel were fantastic! We had one slight problem, I sent Sue an email and it was fixed within an hour!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home, we really enjoyed our Isla vacation. When told it was time to go home, my two year old grandson said "I stay three more days!!""

"We stayed here for one week the last three years, and thoroughly enjoyed the house and staff. We stayed on the lower pool level for the first time this trip, and we loved the views, especially the "front row" patio spot to watch the sunrise. We even saw a few turtles making their way back to the water early in the morning this year! Enjoyed the local food and the church down the street. Overall, very relaxing and a great location. We'll be back ASAP, likely next summer :-)"

"Words can not describe this place. The view was spectacular. Waking up to the sound of the ocean was so calming and relaxing that we recorded it! It was so nice to not hear the noise of daily life from cars and airplanes. We really enjoyed the pool and outdoor area every day. Going to playa norte at Zazilha restaurant for the sunset was beautiful. I have never seen the sun like this before now. We will definitely return to casa vaya vida in the future (my husband wants to move there). This place definitely feels like home in another world. Hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo!"
