  • Beautiful property.

    "We booked the property for 2 weeks in late December/ early January after friends had recommended it. It was the perfect size for our family (7 adults, 3 children). We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful, large, open, clean. The pool is the perfect size for laps and for children to play in. There are several nice areas to sit inside and out. Housekeeper Ana was lovely. As was Jean the gentleman doing security, gardening. Our biggest barrier was that we didn't speak Spanish but it was fine. We got by with a bit of French. The house is a 15 min drive into town. Definitely recommend a car to get groceries. The walk is nice but too far if carrying anything. The house is a 5-7 min drive up a hill from the beach. It's an easy walk down. Not as fun to walk up. After a couple days of going down to beach we started just staying at the house during the day because it's so nice anyways. There are 3 nice master bedrooms. There are 2 other bedrooms that are on the lower level but you need to go outside the main door to access. These are perfect for older children and adults but not young children who could try to go outside at night. Only one real disappointment and it's not related to the property.... We hired a chef for dinners through the owner. Unfortunately the chef had double booked himself so he sent someone else 5 or 6 times to prepare the food (or bring food that had been prepared elsewhere). This was very disappointing. We joked it was like ordering bad take out. When the chef did come though, the food was excellent. We paid upfront for the chef ($2100 usd for 16 meals) and I would not do this again. We would also not get meals for every night because we loved using the kitchen. Overall we had a great experience. Beautiful area. Very nice people. If you go, the French bakery in town is wonderful and the super pola grocery store has pretty much anything you might need. We rented cars from Jesse car rentals and they met us at the airport. Very helpful."

  • Luxury to rival (beat?) Sandals Resorts

    "Resort was huge, but we were prepared for that. What we weren't prepared for was how it actually looked like or better than the pictures! John and Drake were both dreams to work with and this was our first time booking not through a travel agent, so we needed some hand holding. Everything went smoothly, driver was waiting at airport for us, and absolutely no surprises or disappointments with the accommodations. We had a problem with a backed up toilet whe we first arrived and called maintenance, but then managed to fix it ourselves before they arrived. Managed to get reservations at all of the restaurants I wanted, just took visiting with our concierge daily which was only a few minutes and on our way anyway. Food was amazing and more restaurants onsite than you can possibly try in a week. Many beaches, each one filled with beach beds and never a problem getting one. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Crown Suite Penthouse (#7) which was right by the pool with a pool bar and the pool was deserted most of the day ... felt like we owned the place! Only fly in the ointment were the tenacious salespeople who are NOT deterred with a polite no thank you (I had to be more forceful), but that is not a reflection on John or Drake. If we come back to this resort as we trying to convince our extended family to do, there is no one else I'd rather book through. Thank you for the wonderful vacation experience."

  • Exactly as soon

    "We stayed here March 20 to March 27, 2017. The pictures are exactly as the place looks. There is no microwave, however, you remember how to cook the good old fashion way. As a couple with two children, the set up is perfect! You both have your own bathrooms and space. There is WiFi at the pool if you are directly in front of the unit only which isn't a problem. Sometimes, we need to remember we are on vacation and relax! There is a washer and dryer downstairs by the pool. The ocean is just a few steps away and can almost be seen from the unit. There were no issues with the water as you controlled the hot water yourself. The air conditioning worked great with no issues. We lost power one evening, but that was because of the weather and out of anyone's control. The grounds keeper does an excellent job! We enjoyed our stay and I'm already planning our return!"
