We loved our walks along the beach, by the lagoon and around the village. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. This was an extremely peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The casita was clean, well cared for and had everything we needed. It is indeed a "Beachfront Paradise" as advertised. We highly recommend it and look forward to visiting again.

                                                                      Total relaxing week in Barra de Potosi

                                                                      chris s.

                                                                      An excellent week relaxing without a care in the world. The accommodation was exactly as stated, as were the views. Everything we needed for the week was available. Any questions or concerns were taken care of by T & C (on site couple that look after the accomadations) immediately. The lagoon was a great place to explore for an early morning start. The locals were very friendly and we had so much fun improving our Spanish and helping them with their English. The food in the village was 'Mexican' and was delicious.

                                                                      We definitely want to make a return trip in the future, weather was great, accommodation great, food great, everything was great!! The perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries.

The hospitality was fantastic & Tito & Carmen went above & beyond to ensure all was taken care so one could simply enjoy the beach & relaxation time. Barra de Potosi's beach life was not only serene & tranquil, but one of the best relaxation spots I have visited in Mexico. Thank you & Cheers to G & B!

                                                                      A paradise we will never forget..

                                                                      Marc ANova Scotia , Canada

                                                                      We have been going south for many years and have had different and wonderful experiences but none as relaxing and surreal as Sendas del Mar. Upon entering the compound, the beauty of the surroundings and warm air immediately took our breath away. Our home during our time there was Villa Tamarindo with its brilliant architecture and delightfully decorative layout and color scheme. Everything we needed was provided. Dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, wine glasses, blender, fresh towels…..We couldn’t ask for more.

                                                                      Every day we woke to the ocean view from our king size bed, and of course freshly baked rolls dropped off by Titto the resident care taker who is there for your needs day and night along with his beautiful wife Carmen who makes everything look Immaculate !

                                                                      We also would have visits from the kind and gentle pets that would grace us with a good morning tail wag each and every day.

                                                                      We enjoyed dips in the ocean and walks along the beach to the enramadas (open air restaurants along the beach) for lunch, laid by the infinity pool, dined at the local restaurants.

                                                                      We would also like to add a few things about Barra itself. The people are genuine, loving, caring and their way of life is simple. The children are innocent and inquisitive and a delight to be around.

                                                                      The naturalness and simplicity of everything gives you a great peace of mind.

                                                                      Respect the people of Barra, keep the beach and surrounding area clean and enjoy nature at its best.

                                                                      We cannot wait to return to this natural piece of paradise.

                                                                      Owner's Response:
