Recently took a week family vacation to Puerto Viejo, and I do mean the whole family. Our group was comprised of parents, kids (ranging in age from 4 to 20) and grandparents, 9 of us in total. We stayed at Mar y Luz in the big house which consists of 3 big rooms, a nice kitchen and most importantly a huge front porch that became our common area. I should mention I am not a new to Puerto Viejo having been there at least ½ a dozen times. I can say without hesitation Casita Mar y Luz is the best place I have stayed yet. Why?
The houses and property are well kept.
The property is maybe a 10 min walk to the beach.
While Puerto Viejo proper is nice to visit it is nice to leave it and rest someplace without the hustle. The whole area has grown tremendously in the last 10 years and places on the outskirts of town that use to be quite retreats are now consumed in the hustle of the town.
And best of all the staff at Casitas Mar y Luz was excellent. Marlin was always available to help out with whatever one might need. Stephanie the property manager was nothing short of amazing. She went out of her way to make sure our trip was the best it could be. She set up tours, gave us ideas of new things to do, helped shuttle our large group around and did all this because she genuinely wants her guests to have a great experience.
When I have the opportunity to do this trip again I will book at Casitas Mar y luz.
Thank you Stephanie for everything you do.
