“The Perfect Getaway!” Renting Casa Malinche was amazing! The house is gorgeous and beautifully decorated. The view from the main room, morning or sunset, is breathtaking. I was a guest there for three nights, and i hate having to leave. I'd go back any chance i can get! The whole experience there was amazing. The beach is beautiful, white sand, clear water, perfect weather. It's the perfect combination for the perfect vacation or getaway!
“Great location, lovely views, friendly service” We stayed for longer than the usual holiday so we very much appreciated the space in the villas (2 bedroom with a full kitchen and very airy living room) and the friendly but low key service. Service was fast and attentive when needed but the villa always felt private and 'our own' for the time that we were there. The facilities in the resort are very good - the restaurant and pool area is very pretty and relaxed. Food and drinks were good and reasonably priced. Also the ocean views from the upper bedroom and balcony and the terrace are very pretty with spectacular sunsets.
“exotic and fun” stayed at casa selva for 1 week. unforgettable experience. the house is built archetecturally in harmony with its surroundings and is lovely; as was the pool.
Mandy, our concierge, Don Carlos, our watchman, and Fabiola, our cook for 1 night, were great.
local beaches are the main draw as well as the small beach town of San Juan Del Sur. Surprising the number of american/Canadian ex-pats in town. If you like zip-lining, Da Flying Frog was better than the one we did in Hawaii.
this is nature so do remember to bring mosquito repellent and binoculars. Also, be ready to see any number of small creatures from monkeys to land crabs.
note: we visited toward the end of the dry season, so the jungle valley was dry. for a more lush view, I would recommend staying more toward the beginning of the dry season. renting a 4x4 is a must as they have dirt roads and the house is about 25min to town.
Thank you, Joel and Laura for a memorable vacation.
