We first started coming here in the 90's when our oldest was a toddler. The beach is perfect -- clean, private, nice sand, and no surf -- and an excellent entry point for snorkeling. The location just can't be topped as the Main Beach is more crowded and the other bays in the surrounding area just don't have the same nice beach. The casitas themselves are nice enough for me. There's wifi these days, which worked well, and no TV's thankfully. As others have mentioned, the beds are pretty hard and the furnishings are nothing special, although it's all there. Just sitting on the back patio looking at the view -- fog at dawn, a beautiful day on the water, gorgeous sunsets -- is healing. If you're looking for all-inclusive or the Four Seasons, this isn't it. But we've been to Las Casitas 6 or 7 times now, and will keep coming back.
