We had the most amazing time at Cangrejo y Toro. Richard and the staff made sure our trip was the best it could be - they took amazing care of us, made us amazing food, and welcomed us into the must luxurious oasis. The property itself was beautiful and clean with all the amenities you need. We wish we could have stayed for a month. It's the most exquisite house in the best location in town - a sanctuary tucked away in Troncones. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend the house to anyone else!

Wonderful Unique Home in a Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Cangrejo y Toro with our friends and our 12 month old son. The house is completely open, I would hesitate to even call it a house, it is a series of beautiful palapas with their own bathrooms and a central palapa with kitchen, study and living/dining areas. In general the house is completely open to the elements, so the fact that our stay was dry and sunny was perfect. I would recommend this wonderful home if you love the outdoors and being close to nature, it's almost like really really upscale camping. We will definitely return.

This was an luxury experience. The facilities are amazing, the staff are helpful, and the owner can help you arrange whatever type of vacation you are looking for. we had breakfasts and dinners made at the main palapa, that was well worth it. Planning on a return someday, this place will not disappoint you.

An overload to the a most relaxing way.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was even better than we imagined it. If you can believe it, the villa is more beautiful in person than photos. Every inch that your eyes encounter is met with impeccable taste in design, architecture and relaxed luxury. The domed bedroom ceiling is truly a work of art. Cangrejo y Toro was like nothing else we saw in the area.

We came to celebrate a 40th birthday with friends, and once we arrived there was little need to venture out...usually just to explore the multiple surf spots in the area. Every amenity you could imagine was there and well thought out. One friend worked virtually from the comfort of the wi-fi in the air-conditioned library. The individual bedroom palapas provided each couple their own unique and private space. We purchased fresh caught lobster and oysters from the fisherman walking along the beach - delicious! Some in the group enjoyed a fabulous in-room massage, and the lovely staff cooked homemade chile rellenos and chicken mole that was literally the best Mexican food we'd ever encountered! We danced at night on the beautiful wood floors in the main palapa to an incredible sound system playing our own iPods.

The entire week was luxurious without feeling contentious or stuffy. We hope to return one day soon!

Paradise found! At Cangrejo y Toro!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe how crazy gorgeous this place is! I went into it expecting a lot from the pictures, and was blown away by the reality--it's your own private mansion on the seaside stocked with every amenity you didn't even imagine you needed. Each of the different casitas are beautiful, modern and clean with tropical details that enhance the natural surroundings. Nothing says luxury quite like taking an open air shower while watching waves crash along the shore of the beach.

Every morning a tropical fruit breakfast was waiting for us and our dishes and mess from the previous evening had magically disappeared thanks to the fantastic and attentive house staff.

The lounge area on the pool deck in combination with the infinity pool provided endless relaxation and entertainment--swim, sun, swim, sun!

Only a short walk down the beach led to the sleepy fishing town of Mahajua where we enjoyed the freshest and most delicious seafood!

We took surf lessons from a resident surfer, went kayaking in a remote lagoon with an oceanographer, hiked to a hidden cave with Marcos, the groundskeeper and even got to go fishing with the "mayor" of Mahajua!

All in all, an amazing escape to paradise.

I cannot wait to return!

Amazing vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

This was one of those trips where the experience was better than the expectation! The home is even more amazing in person. Not only was the home gorgeous but the setting and overall experience was superb. Staff was helpful, experienced and lovely. It was as close to having my own piece of paradise and the most relaxing vacation I have had in years. I totally recommend this spot to anyone seeking beauty, privacy, and relaxation in a luxurious setting where attention to detail is given to everything. And if you want to check out the surrounding area you'll find it equally as charming but I found it hard to leave this most perfect place since it had everything I needed and the best sunset view around!
