We were so pleased with Casa Sorpresa! It truly is an oasis. Upon walking in through the gates you are welcomed with large shade trees and the fountain…and of course the beautiful salt water pool!
The open air living and dining spaces were so lovely in the shade especially with the hammock during siesta hours.
The pool was our highlight! It was pretty hot in May, but having the pool was just perfect. The air conditioned rooms are spacious and very nicely decorated with brightly colored bedding. There were ample towels available, which was great since we were swimming multiple times a day.
I was also surprised at how quiet it was at night in the bedrooms and what a lovely neighborhood it is. The market/restaurant next door was great for smoothies and/or breakfast in the morning. And around the corner was an excellent food truck with amazing coconut shrimp and fish tacos. The pizza at Venezia was great too- all within a 2 minute walk. The beach is truly just a block away and there is a great tienda with fresh produce not too far in the other direction. The kitchen is well stocked for basic cooking needs and there is filtered water provided (in the bathrooms too).
All in all we loved this place and would book it again in heart beat. If you are looking for a wonderful gem away from the noise of town but close enough to everything (and not up a long hill)- this is the place for you!
We highly recommend Casa Sorpresa!
