We are a group of 4 and we stayed at Las Casas the first week of January 2018. The previous reviews were spot on with many of the opinions and details - so there is no need to add too much. Just a perfect trip!! A few items - 1) I also am very glad we had a driver from San Jose for the 5 hour drive (and rented a car in Puerto Viejo) 2) the grounds were incredible 3) one night we had 11 Howler monkeys sleep in the tree above our sleeping area! 4) the staff was excellent and we were very safe. Thank you for a super stay and we will be back!
It really is like your own private resort
The photographs on the website do not do justice to Las Casas. It is huge and drop-dead beautiful. The architecture and layout of the gardens is wonderful. We visited over Christmas and my 80th Birthday with our family group ranging in ages from 23 to 80 yrs. Though Las Casas would not accommodate anyone in a wheelchair or walker, it was fine for us senior citizens who are ambulatory. There are lots of different activity areas for different folks with birds and wildlife to watch as well.
We enjoy cooking and so fixed most of our own meals. The two kitchens (main house and by the pool) are extremely well equipped and the grill is perfect for a large group. The local stores carry everything you need. We also enjoyed two dinners prepared by the staff that were excellent, in case you are not into cooking.
Speaking of staff: All the staff at Las Casas are wonderful, very friendly and helpful -- you couldn’t ask for better. And the buildings and grounds are kept in pristine condition.
December is a rainy month but there were several hours of sunshine every day – plenty of time to enjoy the pool or the beach, mosquitoes weren’t bad either. December is not the time for snorkeling – the water is too cloudy - but body surfing is good and lots of other places to go and see.
The one issue is the logistics for getting here. We recommend hiring the shuttle and renting a car in Puerto Viejo once you arrive. (Or fly a private plane to Limon if you have access to such.) Regardless, it is well worth the effort.
We had a fabulous time enjoyed by everyone of all ages!
Las Casas is a magical place !
Las Casas does not disappoint. The property is huge, its like having an entire resort to yourself. When you first arrive you feel totally blown away by how beautiful it is. I have stayed at Las Casas twice. The first time with 6 adults and 5 kids. The second time with 8 adults and 8 kids (ages 6,6,5,5,3,3,2 and1 ).
Both trips we had Asenthe cook breakfast and dinner for the group. Asenthe is amazing. She will plan the meals, shop, cook and clean up. Her cooking is great, she makes the best mojito in the world and the care she gives to you while staying at the house is like she is taking care of family.
The sleeping rooms are cozy, each with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, hot water, and A/C for good sleeping. 2 units have loft areas with 2 beds which is great for families. Each unit has a porch area and you can see parrots and Toucans from the screened in sitting area.
The pool is a great place to hang around, swim, do yoga and have a cocktail. Its distance to the main house is just right. Making the main house a quite, cozy lounge area while the kids are enjoying themselves at the pool.
While visiting the area we visited the Jaguar Center, went zip lining, visited many beaches and did some snorkeling, went on a boat tour, to a yoga class, out to Refugio for dinner (so yummy), the brewery in Puerto for delicious beer, rented bikes and cruised the streets.
I highly recommend Las Casas and the Caribbean coast to those looking for an off the beaten path Costa Rica vacation.
Spectacular property, location and service
We were impressed by the property. It is a lot bigger than what we expected. It is hard to be aware of the limits of the property. Rooms were large and comfortable. It has three “ranchos” where the adults, the teens and the children could gather. The pool is gorgeous and clean and the service included with the property was very helping and polite. We hired them to arrange dinners and save us the hustle of having to go downtown on busy dates. The beaches near the property are great and the nearby Puerto Viejo is lots of fun.
Best Family Vacation - didn't want to leave!
We traveled with 2 other families and stayed 8 days (not long enough!). We were a total of 6 adults and 6 kids (two 7 yr olds, two 6 yr olds, and two 4 yr olds). Honestly, the pictures don't do this place justice. All of our jaws dropped when we arrived. The place is far more spread out than we had imagined, making us feel like we had our own private resort. To top it off, the staff was amazing. We feel in love with Asenath, who along with Angela does the cleaning and cooking (if you want). We hired them to cook every breakfast and dinner for us, and once again they went above and beyond. The meals were not only amazing but less expensive than if we had eaten out - it was the icing on the cake for our trip. We were greeted each morning with a huge smile and a cup of coffee in hand for each of us. She arranged all of our meals around our schedules and to our likings (we menu planned with Paola when we arrived). The grounds keeper cut open fresh coconuts for everyone and there was a freshly picked hanging of bananas for us to enjoy during our stay. We absolutely enjoyed everything about our stay and honestly can't say enough great things about it. The area also offered tons to do. The Jaguar Rescue Center is a must do, we (including 7 and 4.5 yr old) enjoyed the ChocoRart tour, Punta Uva was a great kids beach for swimming, we introduced snorkeling to the kids (have to hit it on a calm day though) at the beach just south of Punta Uva, we all went ziplining, swimming with/on the horses at Caribe horse riding club, kayaking with Nature Riders, and surfing (can be rough with lots of rips, so just need to go at the right time of year, which we hit perfectly). Can't wait to go back!!!
An experience of a lifetime!
We, an elderly couple, had invited our son and daughter with respective family to celebrate Christmas and New Year together in Costa Rica. In all we stayed two weeks at the property. We were in all 11 persons between 5 and 73 years old and all of us really enjoyed the place, which has lots to offer independently of age.
We had of course studied the prospect of the facility, but each of us were stunned when arriving, it was to good to be true!
In addition to offering excellent accomodation to everybody, we had all the facilities we could think of in respect of relaxing, preparing meals in two different places, pool and game areas, a wonderful park with many interesting observations of plants, birds and animals, and last, but not least, a fantastic staff that did everything for making our stay an experience of a lifetime.
