We stayed here eight days during the low season. A great time of year if you can stand the humidity because you have the run of the place, with only twenty to thirty other guests present. While we are not particularly sociable, we found ourselves visiting with and enjoying the company of the other hotel guests in light of this... More

We absolutely loved the hotel. It is a truly boutique, all inclusive, and unique experience. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. We got to know several of them on a first name basis and almost all of them knew our names, such a personal touch. The all inclusive did not hold back either.... More

I won't bore everyone with restating that the "boutique resort" is very nice. The diamond of the resort is the staff. Upon arrival, Jorge greets you with a truly genuine smile and offer to help you with ANYTHING you need during your stay. He made restaurant reservations for us, drove us to the Beach Club, made contact with management for... More

As a progressive and communicative company I find it very troubling the lack of response to your petitions during your recent stay at my Casa Velas property. I have been in contact with the administration and... More

My 17 year old daughter and I just returned from a short stay at the Casa Velas. Upon arrival, we were treated to the 5 minute neck massage that every guest receives. What a treat! The staff is so warm and welcoming and went above and beyond for us. The rooms were simple but very large and comfortable. We spent... More

18 months since last visit to Casa Velas. The food is at a higher level now, very impressive. The golf was excellent with three great courses to chose from Vista's two courses and Marina. Great service at the hotel and beach club. Improvements in all areas of service. We had a great break.

My wife and I stayed for just a few days at the end of a two week business trip, Just what we needed to relax and unwind. Loved the whole place, ambience, gardens, pool Ocean Club, cuisine and most of all the amazing staff. This is definitely an adult resort there being nothing to interest children, but we found that...

My comments will echo Ian B's. My husband and I came here for our 32nd anniversary by using a timeshare exchange and upon arrival had to pay an exorbitant amount of AI money per person.

I went here with my wife for a week away. The grounds were amazing and it was quiet and really easy to get to being only a few minutes from the airport.
