Our group of four had but one night on the isle of Isabella, but it was a memorable one due to the location and superb service offered by the staff at La Casa de Marita. First, Location. Just a short drive or a pleasant walk from the sea port. We were greeted with a warm welcome and a tall glass of island juice. We were early so we were not surprised when we were told our rooms were not yet ready - not a problem at all- we walked downtown and felt the great laid back vibe that is Isabella and its wonderful natives. Soon we were in our rooms- spacious and well air conditioned. But the best part was the Hotel's backyard view. Rolling Pacific waves lapping upon a beautiful shoreline. Darkness revealed the brightest Venus I had ever laid eyes on, then the rest of the stars lit like fireworks overhead. Unforgettable. That moment vacations so often provide. The staff somehow caught wind that we would be forced to leave by taxi prior to their breakfast hours. A staff member politely came to our rooms handing us each a boxed breakfast, complete with muffins and fruit- truly a remarkable gesture that is worthy of praise, and a favorable reflection on the staff and Hotel management. If you stay on Isabella stay at La Casa De Marita for the location and the outstanding service.
Beautiful hotel in a lovely location right on the beach. Nice deck to hang out on overlooking the water plus we had our own private deck on the courtyard. Large clean room with a big shower too. Delicious breakfast with a good variety which changes somewhat daily. AC worked well. Wifi was spotty in the room but was ok in the lobby. Helpful and patient staff!
