We took our family of 8 adults (72 - 17) and 1 toddler to Casa Macumba for a week. There really aren't enough superlative words to describe how the staff and facilities are the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation.
Carmen's food was magnificent and she needs to write a cook book. With a fabulous chef on the premises, there's no need to go elsewhere to eat. (Have her make you mahi mahi; it's the best I've ever eaten.) Fernando, Jovana, Marita and the rest of the staff were all great, as well.
The property is immaculately kept and you can eat fresh mangos when they fall off the trees. (I highly recommend the mango margaritas.) The rooms are all comfortable and have excellent air conditioning.
The beach is white sand and the water is crystal clear. You might get the impression from its fence that it's unsafe, but, it's not. We didn't even lock our doors at night. It's fairly secluded when compared to other beaches in the area.
We made the mistake of having someone other than Casa Macumba arrange our transportation from the airport. BIG MISTAKE Instead, just let Blair (the owner) know the particulars of your arrival and let him arrange it. We used them on the way back and it was half of what we paid to get there.
It was much more relaxing and so much better than staying at a hotel where you're just another anonymous client. Casa Macumba makes you feel like family and my family didn't want to leave. Their first question at the airport was... when are we going back?
