We had a wonderful time at Casi el Cielo. We rented the entire villa, which consists of four bedrooms, each with its own bath and tastefully decorated in its own theme…the fish room, jungle room, shell room and the bird room. You also had the option to just rent one room instead of the entire villa. Each room has a separate, private balcony on which you can enjoy coffee, delivered by the staff each morning. After waking at your leisure, sitting on the balcony enjoying the view of the ocean or pool or watching the Toucans flying around, you head upstairs for a large breakfast of local cuisine. The owner, Barbara Kocak and her staff are very accommodating when it comes to meeting your dietary needs/desires.
At night, Barbara and her staff serve a full dinner including appetizer, entrée and dessert. All of which were cooked to perfection and would be par with any meal you would have at a 4-star restaurant. We had a different dish every night, primarily seafood due to the coastal location. Barbara and her staff even pay close attention to detail down to the napkin rings and color coordinated flower arrangements, making the table visually pleasing.
Barbara is also very attentive to your needs and can assist with arranging everything from transport to/from the villa to a day trip through the mangroves and snorkeling.
The pool has a beautiful waterfall and bar where you can sit and enjoy a cocktail.
I’ve been a travel agent for a long time and have stayed at many hotels and villas and would highly recommended Casi el Cielo.
