A wonderful, relaxing location on the beach!!
We stayed here with our two kids ages 14 and 11 for 8 nights. To say that this spot is relaxing would be an understatement! Cool and quiet. Plenty of room for all of us to hang out together or separately--- I claimed the comfy couch on the large balcony overlooking the pool and ocean for the reading of several books while the boys watched lots of baseball and basketball at night. The apartments themselves are very quiet and except for the weekend, we had the pool to ourselves nearly every day. High wave swell warnings made the beaches small and quite eroded this week, but we were still able to get in many good walks in the deep sand and hopefully burned off a few of the delicious guava pastries we got at El Mana Bakery just past Happy Belly's heading back to Isabela and the small empanadilla stand out the apartments gates heading west.. Lucy and Roberto were warm and welcoming and just a moment away via email at any time. Many great meals at Ocean Front, Eclipse at Villa Montana, Las Palmas, Jimmy's Pizza and the awesome sushi place right outside the gate- only open Fri and Sat, plus my husband's 50th birthday celebration at La Casa at Royal Isabela-- what Ireland would be like if it were tropical! We also cooked in a bunch with groceries from Econo Gate 5 on 110 heading for airport which was well-stocked and well-priced. Walmart on 2 for anything you may have forgotten!! We took a day trip to the gorgeous tropical waterfall at San Sebastian (passing through the Guajataca Forest to get there) and also to Cabo Rojo's amazing Playa Sucia, lighthouse and gorgeous cliffs to swim in the calmer waters of the Caribbean. If you do this road trip, make sure to take a right onto 101 off 100 to get sandwiches at The Spot in Boqueron on your way-- amazing tiny little spot and worth the short detour. The people of this beautiful island are very friendly and we hope to return again. Thank you for your hospitality and graciousness!
