Hacienda Del Mar was an exquisite stay for our friend’s 50th birthday celebration. We were a group of 8 adults and 7 teens/kids. The new additions of the larger pool and casita rooms are gorgeous and were a hit with everyone in the group. All the rooms were stunningly decorated and very well appointed. I truly cannot think of an aspect of the design or layout that didn’t feel like great care and consideration had been put into it’s execution. Upon arrival we were greeted by Carlos with drinks and he helped us get settled in (which is no easy task with 7 kids in tow.) Then Chef Ernesto provided the most delightful snacks. We met Adriana, the housekeeper, who was lovely. Chef Ernesto served a birthday menu of steak with bearnaise sauce and grilled vegetables, followed by flan, and the most delicious chocolate cake. I could go on and on because 4 nights wasn’t nearly enough. The property is top notch but Carlos, Ernesto, and Adriana made this a trip our group will never forget.
