My wife and I stayed at Casa Velas from August 6 - 13 and had the time of our lives! It was low season and we were shocked and pleasantly surprised that the hotel was barely filled at all. There were only a few other couples there which made our stay super relaxing and intimate.
The service was over the top and wonderful. Edgar (waiter at Emiliano), Jose (shuttle bus driver), Rangel (waiter at the beach club), Angel (the concierge) and Estefano (events coordinator) made our vacation very memorable. The staff at Casa Velas has a wonderful sense of humor and the service is unmatched. We were delighted that several members of the staff even helped us improve our Spanish!
We took the bus tour of the city on Tuesday, did zip lining at Canopy River on Thursday and went to Rhythms of the Nights on Friday. We went to the town on our own to shop at the flea markets and the hotel arranged for us to dine at Frida, a Mexican restaurant at the upscale Grand Velas as part of our all-inclusive package. We loved our time at the private beach club, too! An infinity pool and great food (especially the sushi)! Emiliano's food was very excellent, too. We especially loved the breakfasts!
We will miss Pancho and his novias, the three resident peacocks. We would love to come back for an anniversary someday. Bien trabajo, Casa Velas!
