I've struggled mightily to find just the right words for this review. Arriba de la Roca is about as near perfection in a place as I've ever visited. From the first email I shared with Shelby, I felt like I was a friend, and she Maurice, and even Retro (the dog), attended to every little detail to ensure that we were welcome, cared for, comfortable, and genuinely happy. The setting is unique with the sun creeping over the Sierra de la Laguna mountains, of which we had a view from our bed in our Casita, Laguna, blue skies, cool breezes, magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean, swooping birds, spouting whales, frolicking dolphins, a magnificent sinking of the sun into the Pacific viewed from the hot tub, a star-filled sky enjoyed by a seaside fire fit enjoyed with new-found friends. The food - perfectly prepared, and preferences known and remembered early into the visit, an early bedside tray followed by a full breakfast, snacks delivered poolside without asking, just when a pang of hunger strikes, evening cocktails, and evening appetizers, lusciously prepared and big enough to be a meal, whether seafood caught that morning, tender carnitas, or cheesy quesadillas. Shelby and Mauricio are very knowledgeable of the area, making arrangements for any day trip or experience that you could possibly fathom - we especially enjoyed the luxury of on-site massages, another couple staying raved about horseback riding on the beach, while another couple took to the nearby beaches for surfing. Todos Santos is a charming nearby small town far from the hustle, bustle and commercialism of Cabo, which was exactly what we had in mind. we saw three of the casitas, each with their own unique details, exquisite views, privacy, any would be a delightful place to rest well each night (or afternoon). And Shelby and Mauricio (and Retro) approach all of this with such gusto, such joy. We felt so happy, so relaxed, so welcome. I actually cried when we left. I really can't say enough positive things, except knowing that in saying so that inevitably it will become difficult to find space to come back when we want, but they so richly deserve it because they have created something so unique and beautiful. Thank you Shelby, Mauricio, and Retro. We hope to see you again soon. xoxo Robin & Brent
We stayed in Laguna, eastern facing the Sierra de la Laguna mountains, beautiful sunrises, but we sa...
