I spent a lovely relaxing week at La Casita over Christmas. This is a destination for someone who is looking for a feel of real Mexico as opposed to a "resort holiday". It was perfect for my goals of reading, swimming, sunning, walking and eating great seafood, while experiencing the Mexican celebrations of Christmas. Bob and Linda were wonderful hosts,... More

We stayed in Casita de la Penita in late November of this year and had a wonderful time. Our hosts, Bob and Linda, were really nice and helped us choose restaurants, taxis, etc. They were a wealth of information about La Penita and the surrounding areas. The Casita is extremely clean, well maintained and safe. We stayed in unit #7... More

We arrived late in the evening after a taxi ride through what seemed to be jungle with trees overhanging the road, so we didn't have a really clear idea of where we were, but Bob and Linda greeted us with smiles and a warm welcome and made us feel at home. The location of this little property could not be... More

This is a perfect little oasis in the centre of a truly authentic village. Bob and Linda are great hosts with plenty of suggestions and advise for getting around and experiencing the whole Mexican experience. The place is small so you get a chance to just say hi or if you like, visiting with other guests. The court yard area... More

The hosts Bob and Linda were fine. The hotel is overpriced for what you get. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for a week. There is no maid service. You can take your sheets to the office to be exchanged once a week. One small bath towel per guest that can be exchanged twice a week. We stayed in... More

Thank you kindly for your feedback; we only wish you had shared some of your concerns throughout your stay as your feedback in our guests book is far more positive it seems. Our suites are self-sustained living and our guests generally find this to be a very appealing feature. For a nominal fee of about 5$ or 6$, our maid... More

This is everything you ever wanted. Bob and Linda are the perfect hosts. They will make all the arrangements for you to go swimming with the dolphins, zip lining, the glass bottom boat to snorkel, court yard pot luck, taxis, or whatever you want to do. By the time you've been there a day or two everyone is like family.... More

We were looking for a place in Mexico off the beaten path and I recalled an article in our local paper about Casita de la Penita in La Penita de Jaltemba which was owned by a couple from Canada (it turns out the article was actually 14 years ago - I guess my memory is still holding up).

We stayed here a couple of years ago and found it beautifully decorated and outfitted, with a delightful patio and tiny pool. Owners are accommodating and friendly. It's across the road from the beach, and about 5 km north of Rincon de Guayabitos, the hot tourist destination nearby. Both towns fill up with Canadians in the winter months and they... More
