My family of four-2 twenty-somethings-stayed at Villa Calabas to celebrate both kids college graduations in 2014. We all really just needed someplace quiet and relaxing by the time we arrived and Villa Calabas was perfect. It is not a fancy upscale place inside but it is clean and well maintained and has everything you need. The outdoor living areas are amazing. View is just incredible, the pool is great, the landscaping is fantastic. It is wonderfully quiet and there are plenty of places for sun-lovers and shade seekers alike. JP and Eve were very helpful and always available when we needed something. We all appreciated the welcome beers and the stop by the grocery store on the way to the house. We rented snorkel equipment one day-nice to just be able to rent as needed and easy to pick up from the office as we drove by on our way to the beach. Definitely rent a car-nothing is far away in distance but driving times will be longer than you think since roads aren't well marked and aren't always where they appear to be on the map. Just know you'll probably get briefly lost but go anyway! Friday and Saturday nights the traffic to get to the high rise resorts from the house is very heavy. Our favorite restaurant was Papiemento's. Great food, service and amazing setting. Make reservations! We also enjoyed Barefoot, Driftwood (hard to find though) and the setting and food at Pincho's-the service was not good at all but they were very busy. We weren't super impressed with Wacky Wahoo's-might have just been an off night for them-but still worth going. We also enjoyed Baby Beach (go to the little food shack for drinks-much less expensive there than the larger restaurant), Arashi Beach and Palm Beach (not nearly as crowded as we expected). The wind died in mid afternoon the week we stayed and it got a little buggy by the pool so we'd just pack the cooler and head to a beach. I definitely recommend Villa Calabas!
