Where to start??
We just spent a wonderful week at Casa Velas. The resort and the locals were some of the most warm, friendly people I've ever encountered. Such a charming city and an even more charming and quaint hotel.
So many PROs:
-check in and check out was seamless. Easiest experience we have had compared to Caribbean locations
-amazingly efficient A/C. Room was nice and cool after a warm day
-quick transportation to the beach club. It was like the best of both worlds...the main pool and restaurants in a lush landscaped area and another pool and restaurant at the beach
-the BED. So comfortable! Even better than home.
-the STAFF. Everyone was incredible, and people like Rangel, Benny, Manuel, Fredy and Pedro really make you feel like family.
-the FOOD. Breakfast was my favorite, and we really enjoyed the seafood dishes. Coming from Oklahoma where steak is pretty amazing, we preferred the seafood over the meat dishes.
-the DRINKS. So many fun drinks of the day at the pool bar! We also loved trying more local wines (Montevina) and the Paloma is one of my new favorites.
-the CITY. Old town was a wonderful day trip! Loved the shops, bars, restaurants and more friendly faces
Our first weekend at Casa Velas, a wedding of roughly 130 guests was also at the hotel. I think the staff did a wonderful job entertaining the few of us not part of the wedding group, including opening up the beach club for dinner an extra night while there was a reception going on. We enjoyed the liveliness of the wedding guests, as it was a little different than the rest of the quiet stay.
We also had the opportunity to enjoy a dinner at Grand Velas, and while the food was amazing, we easily preferred the atmosphere at Casa Velas. So much warmth and smiles and feeling like it was our "home".
We could not be happier with PV and Casa Velas and cannot wait to return! Thank you for an incredible stay!
