Finding the Casa Playa was a wonderful surprise. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated and are different sizes to fit most needs. Both the ocean and bay views are spectacular with screened balconies. The staff was friendly and efficient. The lounge chairs and umbrellas are there for guests to use on the beach at no charge, which is a welcome savings over most other hotels. Pets are welcome in some rooms and also allowed on the beach. We don't have a pet, but it was fun and entertaining to watch the other guests having fun with their dogs. This might be a turn off for people who don't like pets, but don't let that worry you. The beach was not a bit crowded, which was another great plus. We enjoyed a very relaxing, quiet weekend away from the overcrowded sections of beach in some other parts of town. We will definitely be back. Nice pool also.
