Everything about Casa Las Amapas is special- we party of fun loving 10 people stayed recently for my uncle’s grand 60. We arrived by a taxi and were greeted by the staff, felt at home right away.We were given a complete tour of the villa and then guacamole and pica de gallo with chips were served. Mary Carmen is the cook and her food id decently good.We asked her to make some of her specialties and she did. Plates of the fresh fruit with Mexican scrambled eggs with freshest OJ and decent coffee. We worked with Mary Carmen to create 4 days of great menus. She is sweet and charming We were waited on by Reuben, Luis and Orlando during the day.
Ruben stayed overnight to mind the house and front gate. But a big shout out to my man Ruben, he is the most resourceful guy who speaks little English, but can anticipate everything. His immecable service certainly was rewarded with a good bonus at the end. Our rooms were always spotless when we got back from the beach or shopping, cleaned daily. We were a short walk to the main beach and shopping. Taxis are available and are cheaper. The airport taxi is a bit pricy.
The sound of the waves to an open window and fan, I did that 4 nights straight, was the most soothing experience. I slept like a baby.Sunsets are beautiful from the balconies, the salmon glow and the orange ball of fire setting is beyond amazing. We cannot wait to come back.
Nice house - poor surroundings. MAJOR construction of large high rise property next door, with the associated banging, loud workers and radios plus dust and traffic. Privacy issues (read: workers peering into the pool area), so if peace and quiet is your idea of paradise look elsewhere! Great staff in the casa, wonderful rocky coastline in front of the property.
