Well… what can I say… in brief WOW! One of our best vacations!
Me and my family have travelled all over the world and stayed in similar private villas. At first we were a bit hesitant about coming to Puerto Rico, as we had heard that service was sometimes just not up to par, but since one of our family member’s passports was expired, we decided to try it out. It was the best decision ever.
We were a group of 8… travelled with the wife, kids and both sets of grandparents. Since we wanted more of a retreat type experience and really did not want to leave the house too much, we decided to get the all-inclusive package. Definitely worth it!
When we checked in, we were greeted by the butler (Merida) as well as the property manager (Sarah). The home was even prettier in person than in the pictures and the view and access to the beach were spectacular (major bonus we even saw whales – apparently this was also whale watching season). The service was world-class and can honestly say that perhaps the only complaint was that the air-conditioning worked too well and sometimes missed out on the tropical weather when the air was on. All our meals were prepared by the private chef, the bar was top shelf stocked and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and had a relaxing stay. I don’t recall having had to even prepare one drink during our stay… :)
Awesome place for a family with kids… every day we had movie night, as the private theater was awesome… we must have watched well over a dozen movies. Spent all our time between the beach, snorkeling, kayaking, the movie room and eating. It was a genuine caribbean retreat.
I highly recommend Casa Herdz and we will definitely do a repeat visit… but I’ll have to keep it brief as I am at the airport and unfortunately returning back to reality!
