My husband and I were looking for some place warm, near the ocean, and somewhere away from the noise and traffic of commercial vacation "escapes." We found it in Todos Santos at the Casa Bentley.
Bob and Beatrice were excellent hosts. We stayed in the Fountain room and it's the nearest we will probably ever come to living in a castle. It was fun to hear from Bob where all the stones had come from. The cement throughout the property was inlaid with cabochons - polished, unfinished gems - he had gotten from his father. The tile work throughout the "castle" was extraordinary.
The beds were very comfortable and when we desired softer pillows our request was immediately satisfied. The maid service was beyond wonderful: beds made up daily and fresh towels - line dried, so they gave you a nice massage and smelled so wonderful - every day. The huge tiled shower and the Jacuzzi were luxurious - beyond our every expectation. Very, very clean bathrooms with all in working order.
Bob gave us a lot of hints about which local restaurants to check out and which to stay away from and which beaches we would enjoy. We had an excellent meal at Tre Galline and really enjoyed the many art galleries. Los Cerritos Beach was fun for my husband (girls in bikinis and surfing) and we found birds and sand dollars at Las Palmas. (We weren't bombarded on the streets with any offers to buy real estate, either. That was nice!)
If you're looking for constant entertainment and a muy rapido experience, this isn't the place for you. If you appreciate slowing down to enjoy life, getting away from the television and getting to know each other again, this is a perfect couple retreat.
Bob and Beatrice: Thanks for the wonderful week we spent with you.
