My husband and I decided to give ourselves a trip to Isla rather than gifts for Christmas.
We arrived in the afternoon Christmas Day and Margaret was waiting with a warm greeting. She escorted us to Room 3 and did a quick but complete run through on what to expect, where to eat, (we were starving!) and let us know she was available whenever we needed something.
The location is unbeatable. You are within 2-6 blocks of anything you could want, and yet tucked away on a side street.
Room 3 is amazing! We slept several nights with the sound of waves and wind soothing us. We spent another evening out on the little sitting area outside enjoying the breezes. The room was spacious and clean and had a drawer, shelf, table, or bench for everything. We particularly appreciated the small refrigerator, coffee maker and safe. The artwork was original and so in tune with the setting. We also took advantage of the free wifi and were able to send emails and pictures home while lounging in the courtyard.
The maid service was also great!
My only suggestion would be for a small plastic or glass bowl for disinfecting fruit and vegetables. I could not find one at Xpress.
The effort and attention to detail from the owners and the manager is obvious.
Casa el Pio is one of the calmest, most serene places I have ever stayed.
We would return to Casa el Pio in a heartbeat!!!! In fact, we are already planning a return.
