I am a bit of a princess..and this whole trip made me very nervous. HOWEVER, i will never ever stay at another all inclusive if I'm on this side of Mexico again. Casa Contenta is absolutely amazing. There are no words to describe the hospitality, the conform, the spectacular beach, and the endless things to do, see and eat! the best family vacation I have ever had- bar none! We went as a large family- rented three of the suites. Every single one was stunning. The detail AMAZING, the art, the decor, the views! Lin is so passionate about her home it's so clear. I left inspired, relaxed, grateful and blessed. I will be back.

My husband and I stayed at Casa Contenta for a week in Feb. and extended our stay in the Terrace Room for two extra days because it was so lovely! Our stay was truly amazing with an incredible terrace overlooking the bay and a little casita with everything we needed that also had a view from every room overlooking the ocean! That would have been enough, but Linn and Jim's hospitality far exceeded anything we have ever encountered before in our many travels. They were warm and friendly without being intrusive. We went on a tour of the area with Jim one morning to the neighboring towns just to get our bearings. We were invited out to dinner several evenings along with the other wonderful guests. They even had a Valentine's potluck complete with Jim's margaritas on their patio. This stay felt like we joined a friendly small community in lovely Los Ayala. You are lucky if you can book this home. We hope someday to return! Thank you Linn and JIm!

We stayed at Casa Contenta for 10 days and wished we stayed longer! From the moment we arrived, it was perfection. Our children were welcomed by not only Lin and Jim but by the other couples staying there. It was beyond any expectation I ever had. The beach is beautiful, the water warm, the food perfect. The vendors on the beach are fun but not pushy. This is a piece of heaven on earth. Every detail has been though out. Every day you walk around the property and see something new. Lin and Jim are so passionate and truly care for their property and their guests. We felt like family. I will never stay in another all inclusive in Mexico again. This is the way to see Mexico and relax. By far, the best vacation we have ever had!

My daughter and I spent 6 days in the Casa Contenta in lovely unspoiled Los Ayalas. The suite is beautiful,full of lspectacular locally made furniture and decorations. The property is stunning, with outdoor furniture, a rooftop terrace, direct access to the unspoiled quiet end of the beach and hiking trails. Lin was a gracious hostess and gave us lots of good information on the surrounding attractions. The caretakers live on site and were very helpful. Lin organizes a local dog rescue organization which is very effective in keeping the local dogs healthy and well looked after. We will have to go back to both relax and volunteer with her dog rescue!

We have travelled in the area a few times and it was our first stay in Los Ayala and most of all, a the Casa Contenta. It almost seemed to good to be true when I read the reviews on line and yet, still they only gasp the essential... First, the suite are truly beautiful and well kept.The owner and the caretakers live on the premises and are very responsive to their guest's needs. We stayed in the little Casita Suite and it was a good fit for us as we spend very little time indoor when we travel as we love to be part of this very Mexican beach, most of all at Christmas time. We also brought. But most of all, Jim and Lin are truly amazing hosts and we are grateful for the many attentions to ours need; from welcoming us the very first night by including us into there dinner plan with there other guests, who I thought were part of their circle of close friends, to creating a very magical New Year's Eve with good food, bubbly wine and jumping waves while eating grapes at midnight for good wishes. We are very grateful to be part of this place and are already planning our next visit!! By the way, this beach amazing for SUP (Stand Up Paddle board). The conditions were a little rougher then usual but there are many great trip to be done... This is one the main reason were are going back!!! Merci Jim et Lin pour votre chaleureuse hospitalité. Marcel et Chantal
