I spent 6 days in one of the villas with some friends. We found some cheap plane tickets and decided to get away from New England for a little bit.
This place was the perfect contrast to being cramped up in a tiny Brooklyn apartment on a chilly, rainy April day. The managers were great and very helpful, giving us suggestions and rides down to Montezuma. They showed us a private path to the town's breathtaking waterfalls and helped us find a boat tour to Isla Tortuga at the last minute.
Montezuma is an interesting and small town--definitely worth checking out. But Casitas Sollevante is an incredible place in its own right. There's a pool and hot tub where you can lounge and gaze at the ocean in the distance. Or you can float around and see the many stars at night. The grounds surrounding the villas and apartments are filled with beautiful plants and well-kept grass and paths.
Our villa had air-conditioning in the bedrooms, so we were able to get some nice, cool sleep. There was a full kitchen for some cooking-in (there are only so many restaurants in Montezuma!) as well as a coffee maker, safebox and TV. The latter is kind of unnecessary, though, because staring at a screen seems ludicrous when there's such a wonderful view right outside.
