Just got back from Casa Primos in San Jose Ecuador and could not be more satisfied! Was there with my husband for our one year wedding anniversary and we were charmed by this beautiful condominium. It is beautifully decorated and furnished. And we were pleased to have the luxury of air conditioning in the master bedroom as well as in the kitchen and living area even though we spent most of our time cooling off outside in the magnificent infinity pool overlooking the Pacific ocean. We couldn’t believe we owned this little piece of paradise for the whole week. We could even spot the whale’s exhalations from the patio while having breakfast! Everything you could possibly need to be as comfortable as can be during your getaway is at Casa Primos. Washer and dryer, dishwasher, gas stove, coffee maker, pots and pans, comfortable bedding, wi-fi, television in family room with Netflix (not that you will spend much time indoors!) and to top it off, there is a bbq and a jacuzzi on the roof top. Watching the sunset from the hot tub was the best!

If you are looking for adventure as well, the areas surrounding the gated community of Mirador San Jose have a lot to offer (a rental car is a must, even though there is a local bus). Dine at quaint but tasty local restaurants on the beach of Puerto Cayo, only a 15 minute drive away and enjoy the view and great seafood! Or drive about an hour to Puerto Lopez and take a day trip to Isla de la plata where you can hike, see the famous blue footed boobies, snorkel and best of all get up close to humpback whales in the wild (great prices too, only 35$ for the full day). There are also tons of great places to hike. We personally loved Bosque de Pacoche trails which was only a 25 minute drive from our chateau Casa Primos. We took a guided walking tour through the tropical forest. We were fortunate enough to hear and see the howler monkeys go about their day, as well as spot many different bird species, including parrots.

We loved our time at Casa Primos and hope to go back one day soon. It did not disappoint!

“incredible sunsets”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

stayed last two weeks February. new beachfront property with nice infinity pool. The rooftop terrace provided incredible sunset dinners, every night. awesome endless beach - with gentle slope and nice surf. Property managers and owners were genuinely interested in ensuring we had a nice stay. Location a little remote from commercial activity - nice if you're looking for a change from busy commercial activity. large scale shopping was available about 50 minute drive ( Manta ). Quality furnishings, new construction and beachfront (unobstructed views of the Pacific and Isla Plata) were appreciated. Would/will stay again.

Our experience at Casa Primos was exactly what we were expecting. The property itself is beautiful and clean, the pool was awesome and the view was out of this world! It was just my wife and I staying this time around but I would not hesitate booking this property again for a family retreat. The growing community is full of ex-pats so it made everything that much easier! We arrived after a long drive through the mountains and were greeted by Robert (the property manager), also an ex-pat who showed us the house and then brought us to the community bar where we found a group of Canadians watching the hockey game and a the owner of the bar (Lori-Ann) who was gracious enough to offer us some food and drinks after our long drive! This community is well on its way to turning into something really special and I look forward to go back in the future and seeing the progress! Thanks guys for everything!

This is a great villa that is spacious, clean and tastefully appointed. Situated on the beach in an up-and-coming gated community, this modern abode provides all of the comforts, and more, to make for a great vacation. One of the highlights is sitting on the rooftop patio, enjoying a drink as you listen to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean and watch the sunset.

Highly recommended!

Very well appointed house in the gated Canadian development of Mirador San José. The host recommended lots of activities in the area, all within 2.5 hours driving with our rental car (I would recommend getting a rental car - you get a lot more flexibility). Although we only ate breakfast at the villa, the kitchen has everything you need to cook your own meals. We watched the sun go down from the hot tub on the roof. The hot tub fits 2 people comfortably, 3 people also works but it's a bit more "cozy".

“A Perfect Ecuadorian Getaway”
Reviewed December 14, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

This is a beautiful oceanfront house that offers a magnificent view of a sandy beach and the Pacific ocean. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. All in all, the house is very modern, well decorated and spotlessly clean.

The property has an amazing rooftop terrace with one of the most extraordinary views of the ocean I have ever seen. The terrace also has a jacuzzi which was fun for those late night hang outs. There is a security gate at the entrance of the community (none of us ever felt unsafe for any reason, but it was nice to know that security guards were on location close by).

Everything considered, I recommend this property to first time visitors and to recurring visitors looking to travel to Ecuador.
