Our twelve day stay was great. Although the rainy weather inhibited our activities the comfort, security and convenience was outstanding. The staff was excellent and attentive. Asenath cooked us several meals which were outstanding. She also was very helpful with giving us information on the tours and activities we took. Asenath also helped us with our Spanish and was always very helpful.
we had an amazing stay here! the whole process was wonderful from beginning to end, and we were very sad to leave! Carmen was amazing with arranging everything for our arrival, food and cold beer in the fridge, and she had the rental car delivered right to the house, so convenient! Asenath cooked for us the first night and the first morning (delicious meals!!), and then we asked her to join us for breakfast the rest of our stay - she was wonderful to talk to! the house was just gorgeous, with every attention to detail! the grounds were kept in immaculate condition, and waking up to howler monkeys outside our bedrooms every morning was just so cool! we had an incredible stay, and would definitely come again! thank you!
Gorgeous grounds, peaceful setting, loved the cook
We so enjoyed our week at Las Casas. The staff was phenomenal, especially Asenath the cook. She not only made us great food, but was great to talk with. She was so patient with us in helping us learn Spanish, while we helped her a bit also with her English. The grounds were incredibly beautiful and spacious. The accommodations were very good. We enjoyed the pool every day. We walked into town one day and could have used the beach there but chose not to at the time. Most of the time we just stayed at the house and relaxed. The TV was large and the TV area was comfortable for watching the football playoffs. Unfortunately the next door neighbor burned brush and trash and sometimes the smoke blew over our property. The Las Casas staff were very attentive and quick to do what they could to help. The fire was put out, but then he started up again the next day.
We are a group of 4 and we stayed at Las Casas the first week of January 2018. The previous reviews were spot on with many of the opinions and details - so there is no need to add too much. Just a perfect trip!! A few items - 1) I also am very glad we had a driver from San Jose for the 5 hour drive (and rented a car in Puerto Viejo) 2) the grounds were incredible 3) one night we had 11 Howler monkeys sleep in the tree above our sleeping area! 4) the staff was excellent and we were very safe. Thank you for a super stay and we will be back!
It really is like your own private resort
The photographs on the website do not do justice to Las Casas. It is huge and drop-dead beautiful. The architecture and layout of the gardens is wonderful. We visited over Christmas and my 80th Birthday with our family group ranging in ages from 23 to 80 yrs. Though Las Casas would not accommodate anyone in a wheelchair or walker, it was fine for us senior citizens who are ambulatory. There are lots of different activity areas for different folks with birds and wildlife to watch as well.
We enjoy cooking and so fixed most of our own meals. The two kitchens (main house and by the pool) are extremely well equipped and the grill is perfect for a large group. The local stores carry everything you need. We also enjoyed two dinners prepared by the staff that were excellent, in case you are not into cooking.
Speaking of staff: All the staff at Las Casas are wonderful, very friendly and helpful -- you couldn’t ask for better. And the buildings and grounds are kept in pristine condition.
December is a rainy month but there were several hours of sunshine every day – plenty of time to enjoy the pool or the beach, mosquitoes weren’t bad either. December is not the time for snorkeling – the water is too cloudy - but body surfing is good and lots of other places to go and see.
The one issue is the logistics for getting here. We recommend hiring the shuttle and renting a car in Puerto Viejo once you arrive. (Or fly a private plane to Limon if you have access to such.) Regardless, it is well worth the effort.
We had a fabulous time enjoyed by everyone of all ages!
