Audrey, Lee and Chawnalee were the perfect hosts. They immediately made us feel welcome, were there whenever we needed anything but also respected our space and privacy. Audrey kindly got us settled in our room on arrival and left us to enjoy her own special home-made guacamole and cool drinks. We were impressed with Dulce Vida's design and layout - the original architect got it just right. Its eccentric history is echoed in the resulting original artworks displayed throughout the rooms. The sense of style and design throughout all the casas is impeccable with a lovely mix of local culture, crafts and antiques. The rooms remained cool during the heat of the day, especially Casa 2 being partly subterranean, with ample natural light. Views from the rooftop are spectacular and the pool area and gardens make a lovely retreat to sit and relax. Loved the imported Italian red tiles in the pool! Housekeeping staff were non intrusive and did an excellent job. Perfect location, easy walking distance to everything but far enough removed to be quiet away from the tourist crowds. Really, this was one of the highlights of our trip and we would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful, stylish place to stay.
