It’s hard to put into words how relaxing, beautiful, and hospitable this place really is.
We stayed in the Casa Palapa, boasting of colorful Mexican accents, jungle-style thatched roofing, and an open-air kitchen/dining area. My husband and I spent hours on our private terrace, watching the sunset, reading books, and taking naps in the warm Puerto Vallarta breeze. The serenity of this place really draws you in.
Even the pool feels like your own private sanctuary, and after a walk into town (about 10 minutes to the romantic zone/old town/beach), you’ll be looking forward to refreshing dip.
All of that would be enough in its own, but Susan, the owner, goes above and beyond, making sure you’re taken care of in every aspect. She’ll personally drive you to the supermarket and help you navigate the aisles so you get exactly what you need. Heck, she’ll even invite you up to her casa for homemade margaritas and drop you off at the airport when it’s time to go.
One of the nights Susan arranged a personal cook for us. Highly recommend! The views are so breathtaking that there's really no reason to leave and go to a restaurant. We had enough leftovers for 2 lunches. I would recommend doing this a couple times during your stay (very reasonably priced).
I could go on and on about this place, but it’s really just something you have to experience for yourself. It's perfect for honeymooners, (babymooners- that was us), or you could rent out the whole place for a group. We're already dreaming of when we can come back!
