We loved EVERY aspect of our stay at La Vita e Bella. I have no idea why anyone would have anything negative to say about this paradise. Expensive? I totally disagree. We stayed in a spacious 2 bedroom with a big 2 sink bathroom and a large deck with a hammock and a few chairs around a small table. Our daughter spent hours reading in the hammock while we lounged in the chairs with our books. The ocean was just 100 yards away making it more than easy to don our suits whenever the mood hit and run through the white sand, into the sea.
Every single person who works here from the reception area to the restaurant was wonderful -- kind, warm, welcoming, informative -- the kind of staff who makes you feel as if you're the only guest there. I just want to mention some names and I apologize ahead of time to all the others I haven't mentioned: Julianna, Carmen, Jesus at the reception desk -- all superlative. All of the guys who work in the delicious restaurant from Benjamin to Lalo to Ramon to Francisco and on and on. I miss you all already as I think about the hours we spent with our toes buried in the white sand, sipping Margaritas and gazing out to the sea.
And speaking of sand I have to comment on the reviewer who complained about "too much sand." Huh? It's a beachfront place; I certainly hope there's plenty of sand. It was one of the most fun features of this place and there were plenty of spigots to rinse your feet if you felt the need.
We also met a few couples and families who come back to La Vita e Bella again and again and I can understand why. I know we'll be back! This was one of the best vacation experiences we've had as a family. And, again, the entire staff deserves a raise! They were all spectacular.
Cheers to La Vita e Bella!
