One of our very best experiences in Mexico. Casita Tucan is a well decorated two bedroom two level small house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You should take the delicious meals served at Playa Rosa Restaurant.

We were quite nervous whether this place will live up to our expectation. We understood that the casitas were built +20 years ago, but friends who know us recommended them to us and they were right. This is a wonderful place. We stayed at a two bedroom Casita called Tucan. This place felt brand new, the furniture, the kitchen, the... More

Costa Careyes is the ideal place for a honeymoon, spiritual retreat. It really serves as the perfect place to enjoy as it tempts all of your senses. The area is dotted with Villas and seclusion with spectacular foliage.

I stayed in this hotel for 6 weeks twice for business. I enjoyed every day of it. It was the people and the staff that made the experience what it was was. So much so that I came back for my wedding, brought all my friends, and tried to share my experience. Haven't been back for a few years but... More

Last weekend we had a wedding at Careyes, the party was at "Cocodrilo Azul" and it was superb. We had the chance to stay at "Sol de Oriente" which is one of the most amazing vacation houses I have ever been. The location of the house is at the top of a mountain, the pool surrounds the whole house. I... More

This hotel was wonderful once. It is closed and I don't know why it continues to show up on tripadvisor. The place is truly magic, having lived there 4 years, it's very isolated and that can be boring (especially for 4 years). The hotel needs some updating, the pool is lovely. This probably won't post as I cannot fill out... More

We fell across this gem of a hotel when we decided to break up our trip up the coast to Puerto Vallarta, and what was supposed to be an overnight stay turned into two because we couldn't drag ourselves away. Location and views stunning, the hotel kindly upgraded us to a beautiful beachfront room as our first allocation was due... More

The Careyes coast is known worldwide in design circles for the intense, vibrant colors found in the concrete, plaster, tile and landscape architecture of this authentic Navidad environment From each individual villa, sited carefully on a soft, sandy beach, your private pool cools a body warmed by the ever-present Mexican sun, all the while you are mesmerized by the hypnotic...

Casitas de las Flores is an amazing group of open air style "casitas" (little houses) that are basically like our condos because they have shared walls. Beyond that they have little in common. The architectural beauty, the colors of the spaces, the flowers, the small coves below, make this feel more like a mini version of the Amalfi Coast than... More

We got to the hotel pretty late at night and missed the view from our room. We were give a free upgrade to an oceanfront view and had a private infinity jacuzzi on our balcony. From the moment that we checked in, we were taken care of, but also left alone, if this makes sense. It was perfect. We had... More
