What we wanted in a villa was a place that was very private, had great ocean views and sunsets,and yet was close to beaches, dining and restaurants. We wanted a classical Caribbean styling with recent construction and large, modern private rooms. And that is what La Hacienda is. The large lot is filled with flowering plants and shrubs that make one feel that they are in a private garden. The large pool, several levels below the main house was very private. The bedrooms were a very comfortable size with walk-in closets and large, marble filled bathrooms. The only interruption to your privacy was the early morning calls of the villa roosters. The villa was very clean and well maintained. It was a great place to relax and dine in. We could not believe how fast the two weeks passed by. It was very difficult to leave at the conclusion of our two weeks.
The Haciënda was a very nice and spacious property. Master bed room was huge. We found it a bit unpractical that the master bed room was separated from the house. Loved the many outdoor places where we could sit. We also enjoyed the swimming pool! The view from the house is incredible. The house is well maintained but could use a paint job. Very pleased with the luxury retreats level of service.
Arriving at the villa, cold beer in hand, we were immediately impressed with the appearance of the villa, the view of the aqua blue Caribbean, clear blue skies, and a vibrant and well-cared for floral garden surrounding the villa and pool. No need for an alarm clock here. Every morning we were greeted early by several roosters. We food that playing the sound of rain repeticiously on an iPad effectively cancelled the roosters crowing. The villa itself was built in the old style Caribbean that has been extensively renovated. It retained the elegance of the old style with all the amenities of a modern villa with WIFI, Apple TV, and satellite TV. It was very comfortable and very private. The pool is a good size and down from the villa. It was surrounded with vegetation and overall, I felt like I was in a small, boutique hotel. Those visiting in July or August will be treated to fresh mangoes that are on the property. You feel like you are in a private, all-inclusive resort
The Hacienda couldn't have been more perfect for our group of two families with children ranging in age from 11-5. Big yard with play set, large pool and lots of outdoor living. The rooms were large and clean. All of the amenities were really well done. We used the speakers on the deck and around the pool a lot. The sunset views were really quite spectacular.
