From the moment we walked in we were impressed by the attention to detail in the villa. While the decor is beautiful, the comfort and hospitality provided by the staff and amenities are the qualities that will bring us back. We slept so well in the luxurious beds, ate so well with in-house prepared dishes, and enjoyed the best cocktails prepared by Alex - we absolutely did not want to leave. My wife literally cried while the plane was taking off, knowing that our paradise vacation was over. We cannot wait to return.
I cannot overstate how wonderful our stay was. We have stayed in Shayne's house before and could not wait to get back. The house is stunning. Constructed in a traditional Mexican colonial style, the house is visually remarkable and incredibly well-laid out. It took a tremendous amount of thought and care and it is evident in all the large and small touches. To add to the experience, Hacienda Camino al Mar has a fantastically attentive staff. We traveled with grandparents, parents and kids. Everyone of us was looked after and the service was impeccable. Alex is ready with a drink and a smile. He showed us the extensive menu that was available to us and made great suggestions based on our party. Patricia, the chef, made some incredible dishes that we will not soon forget. Enchildades, paella, chillaquilles, sopes, a coconut milk agua fresca, fresh salads. All of it was delicious. Angela, the house manager and housekeeper, could not be friendly and more accommodating. She is a treasure! The location is spectacular, a 2 minute walk to the ocean and near a slew of restaurants, yoga studios, cafes, shops. I cannot recommend Hacienda Camino al Mar enough. Thank you! Thank you!
This villa is beautifully located a half block from the ocean. The staff, the pool, the food, and accommodations are all top notch. The red carpet is laid out as soon as you enter, and the hospitality continued throughout our stay! We will be back!
I would rate this as the best rental experience I have ever had. I feel like we have been vacationing wrong our whole lives!
We started in the smaller house and then moved over to the large house when it became available. The staff here is the real icing on the cake. Chef Patricia’s cooking was better than eating out (and much more affordable too.) Alex the bartender kept tasty drinks in our glasses and spoke fluent English which was helpful. They all made us feel right at home and their presence enabled us to eat, drink, and chat without worrying about who was cooking or doing the dishes.
The villa was incredible. The large open air feel made it feel like and instant fiesta. All the details and decor were so beautifully thought out. I loved the authenticity of the design. The cleanliness and AC in the bedrooms was much appreciated. We will reccomend it to everyone looking for a truly exceptional vacation.
