Two families with kids (2, 7, 9 and two 17 year-olds) stayed in January 2015. The house lived up to the pictures and then some! We loved being able to drive around in golf carts all week and there were so many wonderful real Mexican restaurants and beautiful beaches on Isla. The pool was a perfect size and the bench was great for our 2 year old. Even though the house isn't on a swimming beach, it was nice for playing in the sand and walks ... it was also very private. Lots of places to hang out in the house if looking for personal time, but yet still feel like you are together. A huge benefit is Armin, who arranges to have the golf carts waiting for you and anything else you need on the island - it was also very nice to have someone answer questions, give recommendations, etc. His wife Mariana keeps the house meticulous and just loved to see her smile each day! Sherry was very responsive and helpful, too, including arranging for a taxi to and from the airport to the ferry (which, by the way is very comfortable). We paid exclusively in cash the entire time we were on the island - almost no one we found took credit cards so be prepared. The taxi ($50 RT) and golf carts (about $480/week) will likely be USD and many places take USD on the island. We found the Zamba Beach and Lounge to be one of the best places to enjoy a quiet beach, swim in one of their 3 pools or sit in the beach chairs (free with drinks which were very good). Snorkeling at Garrafon de Castilla (not the park) was also a highlight along with a walk through Punta Sur. The house is close to Mango Café where we ate most days for breakfast or lunch (if you crave a salad after all the tortillas, they have the best). Other restaurants we enjoyed were Elements of the Island (breakfast), Bastos (a MUST for the BEST Mexican food EVER), La Bruja (tacos to go were excellent) and Restaurant La Lomita (amazing fish). Oscar's is good if you just want pizza and Rolandi's hotel had a beautiful view at sunset from the restaurant but the food was pricey for what you get. We also enjoyed the nearby Bahama Mama for drinks a couple of nights (the mango mojito was a hit). The only negative is that the house is right on a main road and you can definitely hear the traffic at times. There is a fountain in the pool that drowns much of it out, along with the ocean itself, but just be prepared (the positive is how convenient it is to get everywhere). Lastly, we liked the Tortugranja. Enjoy!!
