In April 2010 we stayed at La Posada de los Raqueros, my friend, daughter and her boyfriend. The accommodations there are just wonderful. We stayed in a two level Casa Sol y Mar and it was perfect for the four of us. Two very large beds, one on each level. A wonderfully clean and modern bathroom on each level. The first level also had a table and chairs and day couch (think it had a trundel bed under it but to be honest did not look). There was also a great outdoor kitchen. Fresh bottled water was provided for the duration.
Hans and Angie, our hosts and the owners of this beautiful place were informative, kind and considerate. They provided a just right breakfast each morning which consisted of coffee, juice, yogurt, granola and fruit. The perfect way to start a day.
The stretch of beach immediately in front of the Posada was just the most perfect place to pass the day................fresh air, wildlife, crashing waves, and wonderful sunshine! There were several restaurants within walking distance, we enjoyed dinners at several of them.
I almost forgot Toofie..........the resident dog. We wanted to take him home with us. He followed us around and protected us, slept in our little yard and was a great companion on beach walks...........miss you Toofie.
You can't go wrong with this wonderful accommodation.
