“One of my favorites...”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I stayed in this hotel for 6 weeks twice for business. I enjoyed every day of it.

It was the people and the staff that made the experience what it was was. So much so that I came back for my wedding, brought all my friends, and tried to share my experience.

Haven't been back for a few years but long for the quiet, sunny days in careyes.

I have such fond memories of the staff, the locals, and all of my experiences in this hotel.

It holds a special place.

Last weekend we had a wedding at Careyes, the party was at "Cocodrilo Azul" and it was superb. We had the chance to stay at "Sol de Oriente" which is one of the most amazing vacation houses I have ever been. The location of the house is at the top of a mountain, the pool surrounds the whole house. I stayed at the room tower and all I can say about the experience is that I felt on a tale. The views of the paradise are stunning wherever you are at the house. We had the chance to visit the "Copa del Sol" that we could saw from our house and that excursion just put more magic on the trip. The MOST amazing thing during these days was the service at the house. Lalo and all the crew did a great job all the time and the food OH my good the food was cooked at the house and it was delicious. Traveling to Careyes could be not so beautiful as we express if you are not prepare for this kind of tourism. There are not shops or grocery at Careyes, you have to go to the towns near to find something you need. We also have some friends staying at the hotel and they didn't have such a nice experience as we did so I will recommend to rent a house and let yourself be spoiled by Mexican paradise. Basically the plan to enjoy this place is to make sure you have all your supplies (food, wine, etc.) and to stay the most of the time at the property drinking, relaxing, sunbathing and for sure ENJOYING!

Room Tip: Rooms at the house are close to the service and people but the experience of the tower room is highl...

We fell across this gem of a hotel when we decided to break up our trip up the coast to Puerto Vallarta, and what was supposed to be an overnight stay turned into two because we couldn't drag ourselves away. Location and views stunning, the hotel kindly upgraded us to a beautiful beachfront room as our first allocation was due for maintenance.
Food was very good and the service was first class and welcoming.
Would love to return.

Room Tip: Do all you can to get a beachfront room

The Careyes coast is known worldwide in design circles for the intense, vibrant colors found in the concrete, plaster, tile and landscape architecture of this authentic Navidad environment

From each individual villa, sited carefully on a soft, sandy beach, your private pool cools a body warmed by the ever-present Mexican sun, all the while you are mesmerized by the hypnotic Pacific waves just a coconut's throw beyond. The service was competent, bi-lingual for the most part (passable English and Spanish, of course); the food authentic and delicious, and prepared at your convenience. The addition of private masseuse/spa on site services proved a wonderful addition to concierge care we experienced throughout our weeks' visit.

Room Tip: Ask for specific unit with spa/pool - site near walking paths back to main hotel unit; ask ahead for...

Casitas de las Flores is an amazing group of open air style "casitas" (little houses) that are basically like our condos because they have shared walls. Beyond that they have little in common. The architectural beauty, the colors of the spaces, the flowers, the small coves below, make this feel more like a mini version of the Amalfi Coast than Mexico. maybe that's because the family that discovered and developed this area since 1967 is Italian. We have been going since 1997 and we've met French, Italian, Spanish, and Mexican and made many friends along the way. Fly into Manzanillo and it's an hour fifteen minute cab right to this area, set in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary and biosphere so basically you are where the jungle meets the sea. Water temp runs from 75F to 85F, clear and clean, no jet skis allowed in the coves. The whole atmosphere is one of refined elegance meets Mexican hospitality and warmth. If you are looking to para sail, shop and be hung upside down while drinking a tequila shooter than Careyes is not for you. Eat great food, swim, massage, read, snorkel, sleep, horseback ride, scuba dive, surf (within 20 minute ride), meet interesting people from around the world...than this is for you.

We got to the hotel pretty late at night and missed the view from our room. We were give a free upgrade to an oceanfront view and had a private infinity jacuzzi on our balcony.

From the moment that we checked in, we were taken care of, but also left alone, if this makes sense. It was perfect.

We had a scrumptious meal. The staff took some wine up to our room, and we had a nice jacuzzi.

The next morning, the sounds of the ocean woke us up, and the view from our room was absolutely breathtaking.

We swam in the private beach area, and then in the hotel pool.

The pricetag was a bit high, but then again, this is a luxury hotel and it was worth every penny.

Checkout time was great too! At noon! Did not feel so rushed to check out.

First the pluses. Super friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful views from the room which was spacious although bathroom only OK. Good food at the hotel restaurant and reasonably priced for an upscale resort.

Negatives. Quiet bordering on creepy, only two other couples there, restaurant always empty. Lack of dining choices within the resort area (we didn't have a car). The restaurant next to the hotel was extremely overpriced and nothing special and also empty.

Too dead for us and we wouldn't go back but I think some would enjoy it as a real escape.
