Casa Amorita was the perfect place to be for us, a couple who had never before been out of the country. Rita was a great host - she explained the basic workings of the hotel as soon as we got there, as well as recommending some good restaurants (and taking note of the fact that I was vegetarian, which was very helpful). Our room was fairly small, but considering that we spent most of our time out exploring it was perfect. Very pretty, well decorated, and very airy and open with a nice balcony.
I don't think we could have stayed in a better location - there were at least five delicious restaurants within about a minute walking distance, and many more within less than fifteen. The Malecon was about a five minute walk. The only complaint I could have about the location is the church - it's a beautiful addition to the horizon, but the bells ring at least every half hour. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to take Rita up on the earplugs she offers.
Breakfast was served every morning at 9:30, which was the only requirement of staying at Casa Amorita. I'm glad it was though - everything was delicious! Rita and the staff served a mixture of traditional Mexican dishes and some of a more American variety, but everything was very artfully prepared and tasted great.
As far as trips go, you can have Rita book them or do it yourself, depending on the complexity. We booked our own with a company that Rita doesn't often work with, and everything turned out fine, but you may want to leave some of the bookings - especially if you don't speak Spanish - to Rita and her staff. Worked out great as long as we let her know a few days in advance!
Overall, highly recommended, and I hope we can come back! Thanks for everything Rita!
