We stayed at Las Palmas for one week at the end of February.
We had picked SJDS because after a difficult year, my husband and I needed to get away, relax and forget about our busy lives in New York.
Well, what can I say.....the moment we set foot inside Las Palmas and took a look at that wonderful view, we knew we were in for a treat.
We stayed at the king size bedroom, it was amazing. Every night we slept with the french doors opened (screen closed), we would get a soothing breeze and could hear the waves crashing in the distance. We had such a peaceful sleep every night! And the every morning we would wake up to the beautiful view.
We would get coffee while our delicious breakfast was being prepared (home cooking from scratch!), as we enjoy conversations with Steve and Yasmin. They were great hosts, they would give us planty of advise that would help us plan our day, they would even call and make reservations for us.
Steve and Yaz went way out of their way to make us feel confortable and get the best out of our time in SJDS. They even took us on a tour of Granada that included volcanoes Mombacho and Masaya and a boat ride around the Isletas; we had a great time and we would have never been able to cover so much territory on our own.
We rented a car for a coople of days, Las Palmas has an enclosed area to keep the car overnight, and Juan, their ground's keeper, was always ready to open the door for us as soon as we arrived.
On the days that we didn't have a car, Yaz and Steve would give as a ride into town or we would walk (it was only about a 15 minute walk). A couple of nights, we ran into Steve & Yaz in town and they gave us a ride back, the other days we took a short cab ride.
Steve & Yaz' home is beautiful, clean, comfortable and peaceful. We throughly enjoy our stay and hope we can stay with them again in the future.
