Our family of four stayed here in "Casa Mango" for a week. John (the owner) and Amanda (resident manager) were very helpful and accommodating. The resort is a compound in the residential neighborhood of Playita, on the far side of the marina from San Jose. That means that if the neighbors are playing mariachi music at night, you get to hear it. But the place is beautifully set and Casa Mango has an upstairs deck that connects to the small infinite pool. We spent a lot of time up there at night, looking at the stars, and during the day, dunking in the pool. The beach is a short walk away, and a couple of restaurants are also within walking distance. There's also a tortilleria just around the corner for excellent fresh tortillas.
This is definitely a place for you if you're not into the "resort" lifestyle. It's residential and laid back.
