My boyfriend (now fiancee) and I just returned from a week long stay at Casa de las Olas. We could not have envisioned a more perfect, relaxing and charming vacation. The place is located at the end of a winding road just before reaching the Sian Ka'an biosphere. This means that we enjoyed a beautiful, crystal clear sea on what felt like our own private beach.
The rooms were spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable with a canopy that blew gently with the evening ocean winds. There is a great chair hammock on the balcony where you can gaze at the waves or the starry night skies. In addition, there's a intimate table and chairs to have a lovely balcony breakfast with groceries you can purchase in town. Each room has a kitchen so if you feel like dining in or using the grill rather than eating out everyday it makes for a nice change. Upon our arrival, our room was stocked with beautiful fresh cut flowers, a bottle of wine, couple beers and milk to add to your morning coffee. David and Antonio, the young men on site helped every day with all our needs from prepping the grill to climbing palm trees for coconuts, they always made our rooms nicely and are extremely polite, a true pleasure. David's mother has a small local eatery called Dona Lurdes with tasty tacos, empanadas and delicious guacamole, Jimmy the owner can point you in the right direction. He has wonderful food recommendations from the recently New York Times reviewed, Hartwood to local favorites like El Camello Jr.
There is something very special when the white noise you fall asleep to is the natural sounds of the ocean waves softly crashing on the beach and the leafy rustling of the palm trees in the wind. Our alarm clocks were the palm trees and an awe-inspiring sunrise coming up the distant horizon of a turquoise sea (we didn't mind waking up early, there's always time for a nice afternoon siesta).
Jimmy was nothing short of a spectacular host! He was always ready with helpful advise as to where to go and what to do, which helped us immensely in making practical decisions during our trip. We felt like he treated us as if we had known each other forever. He helped my boyfriend with the logistics of our engagement on the beach under the breathtaking night skies. We are truly looking forward to exchanging our vows on the same romantic beach where we got engaged soon.
