Casa Suenos (TTT Property #T650) - Manzanillo, MexicoHello, Everyone, since Deborah hasn't been able to travel for several months, I (Leah) thought I'd share a story I wrote recently about "Casa Suenos" (T650) in Manzanillo, Mexico:
Casa Suenos means "House of Dreams," and it is a dream indeed. Imagine being met at the entrance of your STUNNING villa overlooking Santiago Bay by the staff who will take care of you so thoroughly, creatively, meticulously, enthusiastically, and lovingly throughout your stay in Suenos, that you'll think you've died and gone to Heaven. Not only is your refrigerator stocked, its full of only the freshest ingredients which will be used to prepare the day's meals (no leftovers allowed in this property). At Casa Suenos, grocery shopping is done for you daily. Each evening after your gourmet dinner, the full-size flipchart menu is brought out and placed beside the dining table, complete with photos of all of the various exquisite soups, salads, entrees, and desserts from which you're free to choose your next day's meals. It's all just too decadent, fun, and delicious for words!
Then there's Lolita. You'll LOVE Lolita. She' s the massage therapist and she is GOOD. I got an hour-long massage every day and they were the best I've ever had. She also performs facials using silver, copper, or gold depending on your skin type. Rosy and Jesse are available for manicures and pedicures given in the upper poolside palapa. A stay in Casa Suenos is the equivalent of living in your own private spa in which the staff is there to cater to you and only you. There were only 3 people in our party (my mom, our friend, Lee, and I), yet we were pampered by a staff of 7. If this is Heaven, then Carlos and his team are the angels.
You don't even need to leave the premises to shop. The house has its own line of clothing including shirts, shorts, hats, and robes complete with the Casa Suenos logo embroidered or printed on them. They have a selection of styles and sizes, made of quality fabrics from Mexico City. We bought for ourselves, family and friends (very convenient since my brother's birthday was the day after our return, so mom and I were able to get him great golf shirts).
The main living area of the house is a large and wide-open spanse with huge, colorful, endlessly inviting couches in two separate lounging areas, a grande dining area, the palapa bar, the massage area, and the kitchen. No walls obstruct your dramatic views across the pool and over the bay. On the opposite side of the bay stand "Vaca" and "Toro" (the lush mountains named "Cow" and "Bull" which are so high that they create their own weather). Rather than a wall, graceful colums support the roof over your head, so winds and breezes contantly blow through, caressing and cooling as they go. When it rains, you feel like you're IN the storm, yet you're comfortable and dry, sipping something yummy. There is no tv. There is music. There is laughter. There is conversation. There is rest and relaxation. There is healing. There is celebration. Life is good. Very, very good.
One afternoon, shortly after our living room shopping spree, the owner of Casa Suenos called to make sure sure that we were enamored of our environment. I gushed my gratitude to him for his extreme hospitality and RAVED about all that he and his partner have created. He said that he LOVES Trade to Travel and has now been to 75 TTT properties. Yes, that was no typo...he has been to 75 properties via our services. We're pretty proud of that and we greatly appreciate what a pleasure he's been to work with and for over the years.
