"Lagos Dos" was spectacular!
This was our first time staying in a "home" with our family for a vacation. We have stayed at the Four Seasons Punta Mita a few times and loved the area, so when we saw the stunning pictures of Casa Joya Del Mar we thought we'd give it a try as our four children were older now (teens and college-age) and we needed a bit more room...best decision ever!
First of all, the pictures do not do this wonderful home justice. As we toured the property upon arriving, we were speechless. From the luxurious pool area (the new pool lounge chairs were perfect) to the beautifully decorated great room...the home is stunning. Each bedroom suite was fabulous! We played cards in the game room at night, watched movies upstairs in the entertainment room, relaxed by the pool during the day and after dinner. And the view from the pool...wow!!!! We felt very "at home" at Casa Joya Del Mar. But the home was not the only aspect that made this vacation one of our favorites...it was the service.
Francisco (we still mention his name all the time) and Reina, made this vacation! They were there for us when we needed them, but also very behind the scenes. Francisco was truly a professional!!...very courteous, knowledgeable, service oriented and a whole lot of fun! His fish tacos and margaritas by the pool for lunch..it just doesn't get better. The owners are very lucky to have found him. He arranged our outings(ATV's and boating), made our restaurant reservations, drove us where we needed to go, gave us a tour of the area so we were familiar with our surroundings when we arrived, and just made sure we were always happy! It could not have been better!
For our next visit, we will definately get the chef (Isreal) to come in more to cook dinner. He was wonderful...better than the Four Seasons and so much more reasonably priced!
Russ, Francisco and Reina, thank you for making our trip one we will never forget. We cannot wait to return!
