We traveled to Playa Portrero with our 18 and 24 yr old sons to Casa Melray for our final spring break. There are hundreds of scenarios that would have been just fine with us, after all we were all together & on a long awaited vacation.

Melanie and Ray have created an amazing retreat on the beach. Situated a nice 10 min walk on the beach from the restaurant area,... More

Traveled with a group of 10. Discovered this gem through a local friend. We had 4 rooms and they're all beautiful! Much better than the photos we saw! Fabulous people. Mel and Ray are great as are Leah and Nelson who all work hard to make their home your home away.

When we weren't lounging around next to the pool, Mel was also there to help us quickly arrange rides, tours and even pedicures. She baked goodies almost every day for us to enjoy. The shared kitchen was a great place for hanging out with the hosts and other guests, making the whole stay feel a lot like my girlfriend and... More

BEAUTIFUL home on quiet beach....I don't even want to tell you about it, to keep it our own secret get-a-way :-) All the positive adjectives are true about Mel & Ray, Joan & Murray and Leigi & Nelson others have mentioned.
