The charm of the Casitas Eclipse Hotel is evident from the moment that you check-in. Christopher, our amazing receptionist, took excellent care of all of our needs. He was friendly and intelligent and was the perfect smiling face to greet us. He readily helped us book our tours and gave us suggestions on secluded beaches in the area. Our casita was very clean and all of the necessities were awaiting us. Although it is not appointed with 500 count sheets and a pillow-top mattress, it is more than comfortable. Regardless of the few negative reviews about theTutu Bar, we had no problem sleeping, even on New Year's Eve. All you have to do is turn on your A/C and it creates just enough white noise to lull you to sleep. Our bathroom was great and we enjoyed the veranda very much with our morning coffee!
The breakfast was always fresh and the beach is only a short distance away. Housekeeping always did a great and creative job with our room that brought a smile to our faces when we returned after a day at the beach. Even the maintenance fellow was all-smiles!
The grounds at the hotel are very well-manicured and lovely. One of two pools was very close and it was always clean with the lingering lizard bathing in the sun.
We must also applaud the Gato Negro Restaurant, adjacent to the Hotel Eclipse. Although we had many choices for places to eat, we felt most at home here. Javier, Memo, Aldo and David were exceptional in their service. I only wish the service at home was so good! I felt spoiled rotten. My fiance' even spent his nervous moments before our wedding at the bar, finding respite with the guys at the Gato Negro.
We cannot say enough nice things about our stay here. We felt very at home at the Hotel Casitas Eclipse and plan to return with friends and family around the same time next year. Thank you 1,000 xs!
