This is our 4th stay at Piedras y Olas and we feel as though we are part of the family they have created there. While we stayed on this trip there was a flurry of talk about a recently posted review by folks that were not so happy. Suddenly it seemed prudent to share our experience.
As you will read in other review "perhaps" this wonderful place isn't for everybody. There ARE animals about the premises and they are treated with quite a bit of reverence. One can learn (we found out) about the vet clinic they support which is part of the foundation which is the base of their project. We didn't know this.
But what everyone will enjoy and recognize is the attention to detail, the warm and friendly staff that makes you feel like an honored guest, the great food, and general fun property. Over our four years of visits, we have watched the resort grow and we look forward to the surprises and improvements.
We have stayed in bungalows and in villas and have been very, very impressed with both. We learned early on that we were visiting the largest stairmaster in that part of the world so that is no longer a challenge for us. Our kids don't seem to notice but we did!
The last two years the construction has been noticeable and we were grateful to be warned by the staff as well as offerred an incentive to stay near to it of 20% (I think). As long as we knew, we were prepared.
We love this place and recommend it to everyone. I see the owner's name bantered about in other reviews and that is the only reason we'll say, Thanks Chris, for a job well done. You have a wonderful place with a warm and loving staff.
