"Incredible isn't a big enough word to describe Casa Alvarado. This place is simply amazing! The pictures do not do the home justice. I can honestly say I have never had such a comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable vacation. The owners are wonderful and really have thought of everything needed to make the home feel like a home. All the conveniences are there....and so much more.
There were 12 of us during our 9 day stay...4 adults and 8 teenagers, and we never felt crowded....and certainly never bored. Between the snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, shell collecting, swimming, playing board & card games, doing puzzles, and simply relaxing there was something for every one....every day. We never even needed to leave the property. The snorkeling right outside your back door is so convenient. The water is clear and there were so many beautiful, colorful fish to see. We snorkeled for hours. The kids spent a lot of time in the kayaks tooling in and out of the rocks and just exploring the waters. We essentially had our own private beach.
Carlos & Griselda were amazing...and so nice. Carlos came by every day to check on us. He brought us bottled water if we were running low, bags of ice for our drinks, he scheduled our catered meals, fishing trips, cooking classes, etc. Griselda kept the home clean and OH MY GRACIOUS! her cooking is amazing. I highly recommend having her cater some (or all) of your meals. The price is so reasonable especially considering we always had left overs for the next day. Griselda taught us how to cook some amazing authentic Mexican dishes. We all had so much fun laughing and learning.
I can not say enough nice things about our stay at Casa Alvarado. Everything absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We were so sad to leave and are already talking about our next visit. We can't wait to come back."
