“Just a Little Bit of Heaven...”
Reviewed April 9, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

From the beautiful weather and picturesque surroundings to the culinary creations which were as tasty as they were beautiful. This was my third trip to Salina del Mar and was easily the best one yet.
Besides spending the week with family and friends, we were visited by Pacific Gray Whales every day. Breaching or waving a fin, the whales were just offshore with their young playing and feeding before their log trek north to Alaska. We also had many different bird species in the area with squadrons of pelicans hanging overhead and the many birds darting in and out of the numerous palms covering Salina del Mar.
Salina del Mar has added a couple of cabanas on the beach along with tables, umbrellas and chairs which is where we spent a lot of our time playing bags. Our bartender, Jorge, made enjoying the beach even more relaxing not just delivering drinks but hospitality felt throughout the Salina del Mar staff.
Head chef and concierge, Ericson cooks with knowledge of local and seasonal offerings and her food is authentic Mexican food. The pork rib which fell off the bone or the red snapper that melted in your mouth, I can’t decide which meal was the best.
We started out every morning with fruit, fresh squeezed OJ, and pancakes, French toast or waffles, then eggs to order. Rancheros, omelets, or some other type of delicious sauce accompanied your eggs along with the traditional refried beans, tortillas, potatoes and my favorite two strips of bacon.
I didn’t think the dinners could get any better but Ericson has taken her cuisine to a whole new level which I didn’t think possible. She only uses the freshest ingredients from local growers and gets the daily catch at the local marina in San Jose del Cabo. From fish and pork dishes to tacos, pasta and even cheeseburgers, Ericson put her own special spin on everything we ate that always had you wanting more.
And her hospitality as your concierge is impeccable. Anytime we needed something or had a special request, Ericson made it happen. She really makes you feel like you are a welcome guest in her house and you can feel she really loves doing what she does. When you get a round of applauds every night and a couple of standing ovations, you’re doing something right!
When you have scenic surroundings and secluded beaches with the beautiful weather of Mexico, you can spend it with everyone else in a hotel or you can spend it in your own little paradise with all the amenities including eating 5 star meals in your bathing suit. And if you want to take luxury a step higher, you’ll go to Salina del Mar and enjoy your own little bit of heaven!
Gotta Love Life!

After one of the best stays in the gold coast of baja, I never thought a return trip would not be as good as the first time ,but was i wrong! owner greg makes us feel like old friends and chef erickson is 5 star caliber, up with the best in the world.
Combine a beautiful villa euro design with a beach front location in the gold coast of baja and belive me it gets Better and better. Still looking for blue sky in my schedule to go back

“What an amazing vacation!!!!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is such an amazing vacation property! The house, the beach, and the staff were superb. Attention all Foodies - I highly recommend including the chef Erickson to come and make the most delicious foods you have ever tasted, she is incredible! This is truly the best vacation experience a family or group of friends could have. The view of being right on that gorgeous beach is reason enough to go back again and again, but then the house is just as stunning. I am definitely looking forward to the next time I am there!!! I miss it already!!!

“An amazing experience”
Reviewed November 22, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We planned a trip to this villa (Salina del Mar) in November 2016 in recognition of my father's 70th birthday party. My extended family, 12 adults and 7 kids, made the trip. Greg, the owner, responded quickly to every email, and I sent him A LOT due to some extenuating circumstances. I met him the first day we arrived on site and he then handed us over to Ericson, his chef and concierge, for the rest of the trip and we were not disappointed. She and her staff were AMAZING!

But first, the villa. The property, itself, was everything it claimed to be on trip advisor. Every room was clean and unique. Towels were thick and soft. Beds were comfortable. The grounds were beautiful. There were two young men taking care of the grounds every morning. They would also get out the beach chairs and toys, and put them back early evening if you wished. Marcela, the sweet little maid, made sure everything was tidy and answered any questions we had. If we weren't chatting with her, you would hardly know she was there, quietly going about her duties. We were fortunate to have good weather and calm seas every day. We tried out the kayaks and the paddle boards and the noodles for flotation, and had lots of ocean fun down at the water. There were life jackets there for the kids, much to our relief! We all felt very safe. The kids (ages 10-16) could run on the beach and all over the rental (which seemed more like a small resort) and we didn't have to worry about their safety every single minute of every day. It was so nice having the beach easily accessible with only an occasional neighbor strolling the beach. It was very private in contrast to other trips we have taken to the Dominican where it was tricky to find chairs for 19 on the beach every day. The sunsets and sunrises were absolutely gorgeous. We spent the majority of our time at the big palapa at the end of the property which got a nice breeze, shade, and allowed us to enjoy the sounds of the ocean, the beautiful views, and watch the kids and grown-ups in the water. The last day some of us even got to see a pod of dolphins that cruised by the place in the early morning. Everyone's trip was complete after that.

Now for the staff. We had Chef Ericson and her staff make breakfast and dinner for us every day. Every meal was FANTASTIC. Everything from her steak and lobster, to her sea bass, to her tacos, to her chicken parmesan (a family favorite) was delicious. Oh yeah, don't forget the creme brûlée! If we ordered too much food for dinner, it became leftovers or snacks that we looked forward to for the next afternoon. That and her guacamole and salsa for the chips! 19 people was a big group, so there were additional requests at most meals for the kids, or those who preferred to avoid eating much fish. These were accommodated without a blink of an eye. No problem. The house had been pre-stocked on our request and the house was full of everything we needed. The house became ours between meals, as Ericson went out shopping for dinner every day. It was kind of fun to pretend the place was ours for awhile. Oh, and I can't leave out, Arturo. Arturo was in charge of beverages and he made the bloody mary's, piña coladas, etc from scratch. There were frozen virgin strawberry daiquiris and more for the kids. The kids loved Arturo. He is now Don Arturo to the family (Don being the spanish word that indicates respect).

Truly, we cannot say enough about Ericson. She is an absolute workhorse! She can also be funny, entertaining, and very warm. She obviously gets along with and handles her staff very well. It is important to her that everyone is happy with their stay, and especially with her meals. Just as an example of her dedication, one night, after she had had a really long and busy day, looking pretty tired she said goodnight to the group and we had thought she was gone. The next thing we know, one of our youngest comes back with fresh coconut all cut up into, what seemed like, a million small pieces in a bowl. Apparently the kids had found a ripe coconut and wanted to do something with it. Ericson, unknowingly to us, had obliged before she left, and they now had fresh coconut to eat. She is very dedicated to her job. Everyone left very impressed. Oh, and an extra thanks for the firewood and fire pit for the bonfire on the beach one night. We loved that evening. Hard to explain the detail she puts into everything, but just know it is there.

Needless, to say, we highly recommend the villa, and the staff, and we would love to return one day. It was an experience we won't forget.

“A little slice of paridise”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our family just returned from a fabulous week at our own little resort, Salina Del Mar. It truly felt like a resort rather than a beach front villa. Greg was so helpful and his staff on top of everything. From the moment we arrived until the day we left Ericson, our chef, took great care of us. Each meal was delicious and presented like it was a 5 star restaurant. She even provided firewood for a bonfire and a special birthday celebration that included a piñata for our 30 year old son! So much fun. A beautiful place for friends and family to gather. With so many rooms you can have a great life celebration on this property. Outdoor living at it's best. Thank you to both Greg & Ericson for making our week a special one.
