The house is amazing. We fully enjoyed our stay. It is clean and very well kept.
The house is completely off the grid. Un-Plugged!
There is a Cellular WiFi device onsite but it's connection and speed is very limited.
We quickly realized how attached to our phones we are in our daily lives as we put them away.
The open air living areas are very tranquil. It's wonderful to relax in the living room at night by candlelight and listen to the sounds of nature. There are lights if you prefer.
The sounds of the jungle and the waves of the gulf fill the air both day and night.
The bedrooms are well screened and comfortable. Everything is - as the pictures and descriptions indicate.
The pool is refreshing after a long day on the beach or in the jungle.
This place is totally safe. It is a place to find absolute relaxation.
The bedrooms all have safes and the doors lock with keys. Our experience was that neither were truly necessary.
It is a very short walk to a virtually private stretch of beaches that are amazing.
The staff is all very attentive and caring and never overbearing.
Pascal is a wonderful Manager and Host and is nearby to answer questions. He checks in daily.
He can setup (concierge) any trips you would like to venture on. He will also setup your first meal(s) if you let him know in advance.
The grounds keeper Carlos is a very sweet and hard working man. He cleaned the pool daily of the leaves and seeds from the surrounding plants. Pura Vida Carlos!
Luis was the star of our trip. His cooking is fabulous. He is a truly gifted chef.
He is a patient, kind and caring soul that truly adapts to his guests.
He will cook up whatever you purchase to make and pleasantly surprise you with sides that you would not have thought to ask for.
Our Spanish was limited but we all managed to communicate. Only a couple of minor misunderstandings.
We had never had the in-house chef experience - Luis made it wonderful! His wife cleans the house daily and is also very sweet.
Casa Atrevida is wonderful!
