My large family (10 adults and 9 children) coming from the US and Canada, just returned from a two week holiday at Casa Blanca and we couldn\'t be happier with our experience. Carolina and Miguel, the caretakers, and Sonia, the cook, took impeccable care of us and were wonderful in every way. The food was amazing and the property and rooms were perfectly clean. Whether offering an umbrella while at the beach, accompanying us to the store for groceries, arranging to buy local fresh fish or having a man come to the property to cut fresh coconut from the trees, every effort was made to make us feel welcome, safe and very well taken care of. We also had a rotating night-time security guard, both of whom were friendly and kind. Rina, the owner, though living in the US, facilitated the whole vacation, answering questions, helping us translate when we couldn\'t understand something and even having a wonderful welcome basket and groceries ready for us when we arrived. She had someone meet us at the airport and ensure that we picked up our rental car and got to the house safely. I could go on an on...
The kids spend hours in the pool each day and we enjoyed reading in the hammocks, playing games and eating in the outdoor living areas and relaxing. The beach was wonderful and we all loved playing in the waves. It\'s a nice long shallow beach and mid-tide was perfect for playing in the sand and the waves.
Though it isn\'t necessary to speak Spanish, it certainly made it easier for us to have a couple people who knew enough Spanglish to get us through. :)
The local water park (15 minutes away), Atlantis, was a very fun outing. Though it won\'t win any safety awards, we spent 2 very fun days there. Go on Thursday to avoid the crowds, both times we went we almost had the place to ourselves.
Though initially we had some concerns about safely, we felt perfectly safe on the huge property, on our outings, and getting groceries in town.
I highly recommend Casa Blanca to families wanting a place to relax and enjoy quality time together.
