We stayed at Casa Anita with my boyfriend for three weeks, during christmas 2012. The first two weeks were very quiet, christmas week got a bit busier. All in all we loved! our room, A16. The fridge was noisier than an airplain,(I think they had that fixed at the end), the balconies are very close to eachother, and the sheets in the bed were...not nice. But aside from that, everything! else was great. The cleaningstaff was excellent, so friendly and the room was perfectly neat every day! The reception staff was nice, even if we did´nt have a taxi waiting for us early in the morning departure day, although we´d payed for it. The nice guy in the night reception took very good care of us, and got us to the airport just in time. Also after 36 hours of flying, we had to carry all of our luggage to our suite upon arrival(110 steps) upstairs, although we were promised that someone would come and help us. Anyway,that doesn´t matter, we were late. One thing we found a bit strange, was to be told how much to tip the staff. That anyway, has a lot to do with the fact that we come from Finland, and in Scandinavia/Northern Europe, the staff gets payed very well, and the tips are also included in the wages.
The view, yes, it was great, but not as great as all the reviews i´d read before we got there. It has a lot to do with the fact that they are building a tall modern hotel complex just int "the middle" in front of the view. That is not any fault of the hotel, but it´s a shame.
The overall feeling at Casa Anita & Corona del Mar is very laid back. The equipment in the suites is great and the staff is friendly. So all in all, we really recommend this to people who don´t care about "hanging out at the pool" but enjoy going around and enjoying the city and the cities close by.
