My spouse and I just returned from a great 7 day vacation stay at the fabulous Casa Velas Boutique Hotel. The hotel was beautifully landscaped - lush tropical gardens everywhere surrounded by a green golf course and upscale neighborhood. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished and filled with many amenities such as flat screen TVs, Ipod/ Iphone docking stations, and the outdoor patio plunge pool. The bathrooms were huge and beautiful. The gym was huge and fully equiped. The staff was excellent- extremely attentive and friendly, especially the waiter staff (the Ricardos during the evening and the Renes during the day), the lobby bar tenders Benny and Freddy the pool bar tender, and the bell boy/ shuttle drivers. We spent half our lazy days lounging in the refreshing and beautiful hotel pool. We spent the rest of our time at the resort's wonderful private beach club, which also had a pool and also a private beach front. We loved the quiet. We also enjoyed meeting a number of very nice guests which was possible due to the intimate size of hotel and the smaller number of guests this time of year. Loved the free Wi-fi in the reception and adjacent out door terrace area, and in the beach club. And of course, every meal we had was delicious, and beautifully presented. We hope to return soon.
