Casa Torre Careyes
“The views, the attention to detail, the impeccable staff... need we say more?” - Reviewed by Lisa
I couldn’t decide what was most arresting: the fabulous hues of the rich red-and-ochre walls, the immaculate attention to the smallest detail – from flooring to dining utensils – or the spectacular view.
In hindsight, with time to digest all the wonderfulness, it was the culmination of everything. Casa Torre exudes simple styling, but this effect has not been created simply. Love, forethought and hours of meticulous care have gone into making this home the ideal venue for a fabulous Careyes vacation.
The harmonious cluster of palapa-roofed spaces – with an almost village feel to it – is the work of the renowned Mexican architect Diego Villaseñor. The main feature is the 7-metre high living/dining palapa, with additional palapa buildings each housing a bedroom suite.
From the entryway all the way down to the guest suite Jacuzzi, cascading perfection is on display here.
Wherever you are, you’ll love the sound of the waves breaking on the shore below and the wonderful staff who are ever-present and ready to pamper your every whim.
EMPHASIS ON GASTRONOMY
Careyes is the home of the house party! There are a couple of very good local restaurants, but the custom here is to eat “a casa” – in the magnificent property you are calling home. Feel free to invite new friends over, host a cocktail for 50 of your nearest and dearest, or fly in your fave DJ for the weekend.
Due to the common practice of home entertaining, properties in Careyes all have very well-trained staff – and Casa Torre is no exception. Mealtimes are always a joy with a different table setting for each gastronomic event. The cook is a whiz with all local dishes as well as many international options.
I loved the way the staff unobtrusively knew whenever I needed anything, always had a cold towel or libation at the ready and instinctively knew when our group was ready for the next cocktail.
Really, a gold-star rating for the food, presentation and service.
