I loved my stay with Marianne at Simply Baku. I'd spied the sweet space my prior trip to La Cruz. I chose the top floor beach view casita because of a sense of privacy, breeze and air conditioning. It was all I hoped for with a great view and all the conveniences I could ask. Look forward to my return.

This was absolutely the best getaway that was very relaxing and refreshing for body and soul. The rooms were amazing with attention to every detail. Marianne and her staff made this the most relaxing vacation ever. The local surroundings of fish market and marina further enhanced the enjoyment of being in a small walking-town.

Simply Baku is simply amazing! We thank the good Lord that we met Mariane at Tacos on the Street our first night in La Cruz. We had been invited to the Puerto Vallarta area to stay with a friend at his resort on the other side of La Cruz. After two days of fun with our guest and his new...

We have stayed as Simply Baku four times and it is always fantastic. It was our first foray away from the all-inclusive hotels about a dozen years ago.

We've taken many vacations over the years, in many countries, but Simply Baku proved to be the most peaceful and relaxing spot we've ever found.
