This is my 3rd time staying at Casa Vista Del Mar, but first time staying in a different room than previous trips. The sunset and view was just as beautiful as I remembered it to be!
Richard really wasn't in communication before our arrival like he has been in previous stays. I'm going to assume it was because he knew I had stayed before-- but there was no communication concerning directions or arrival time, so I'm happy I remembered where I was going and how to get there. We were greeted by some of his friends when we got there that had to go find him to check us in, which felt awkward. Every other stay we have been contacted by and greeted by him and check-in has run very smoothly, so I'm going to hope this was an off day. In previous visits I have stayed in the 1 bedroom apartments, but this time I stayed in a studio. This was not intended, apparently the wrong room was booked (my fault) and we asked to switch to a 1 bedroom, but told they were unavailable and instead Richard offered us another studio for the same price as the one we rented, but we politely declined.
After staying in both, I would recommend the 1 bedrooms over the studio's; they are better well kept. The roll away beds are relatively new (I think one of them was fresh out of the box) and are comfortable-- easy to get a good night's rest on!
You really can't beat the view from Casa Vista Del Mar-- it is phenomenal to wake up to. The location isn't bad either, a short drive from the center of town and a little bit further from Sandy and Domes beaches. It is a relatively cheap stay with priceless views!
