Casa de las olas was great. From Heather in her email communications to Jimmy & Matt who lived onsite, the beach, room.... all was great. The staff took very good care of us and gave us plenty of tips and recommendations. We also got a chance to hang out with them, super cool people.
There is one building where Jimmy & Matt live, while the other building is for guests. There is about a 5 rooms in the guest building and we had the 2nd floor oceanview suite. I got to see 2 other rooms, one which was similar to mine but with a balacony, but if you have the $$$ the downstairs suite is amazing. It has a huge porch, hammocks, king bed(s), beautiful bathroom. Each suite has a small kitchen, fridge, cutlery, etc, not the most modern, but all in good condition. Its a bit pricier than what I would have expected, but over all no complaints. Bathrooms are working condition, but slightly different to what you would expect if you were to stay at a hilton type of place. Beds were fine (actually while visiting they were replacing all rooms with new mattresses) There is wireless and ipod docking station.
Is perfect! Quiet. 20 feet from white sand & turquoise waters. Totally something you would see in a corona commercial. CDLO is at the end of the beach strip, so I highly recommend renting a car. Its right next to the bioreserve entrance gate. If you get a chance you should see sunset at the restaurant inside the reserve. They have great ceviche and margaritas. The city town is just about 10 -15 minutes drive from the resort.
If you can afford, reserve the master suite
Rent a Car
Bring snacks, drinks, etc. the suites have kitchen amenities but you will still need to do a grocery run or rely on the restaurants on the road for your meals.
Eat at El Tabano for dinner.
