My nine-year-old daughter and I were booked for five nights at Casa Viento - but after our first night quickly rearranged our trip to stay longer. Casa Viento has everything the independent traveller could possibly want: spacious rooms, comfortable beds, quality linens, Wi-Fi, bountiful hot water, aesthetic appeal. There's a pool in the courtyard. A beautiful beach is a two minute walk away. But these amenities are nothing compared to the warmth of the hosts, Nicole and Raul.
The hotel is a 10 minute drive north of San Miguel - close enough to quickly pop in for a dinner or drink, but far enough away
from the cruiseship port to relax. There's a great beach a two-minute walk away as well as good shore snorkeling and horseback riding within a five minute walk. Many people eat breakfast at the nearby country club. We chose to have coffee and granola by the pool in front of our room. The rooms are well-equipped with fridges, coffee-makers and a few dishes. Some rooms have full kitchens. I really liked the little table and chairs on the patio in front of our room where my daughter and I could hang out and play card games by the pool.
We will definitely be back. A few suggestions:
1. This would be a great place to go with a bunch or friends or family for a group vacation. There are five rooms - some with full housekeeping - and a great patio area and pool where you could hang out.
2. There are a number of nearby places for breakfast, but they are nothing special and a bit pricey. Next time I will pack my own favorite coffee grind and a few breakfast foods for the first morning so we don't have to go out for breakfast even once.
3. Rent a car from ISIS for $35/day, which includes all taxes and insurance. It is easy to drive around the island and taxis are expensive.
