About a week ago we met
Antonio Nava, the reservation coordinator from the El Careyes
Resort at a friend's birthday party. He invited us to check out
El Careyes and promised us a personal tour.
Antonio was not there when we
arrived but were told we could wander the grounds and take as
many fotos as we liked. Next to the restaurant there is
path through the complex that leads over to Playa Rosa.
The pools are gorgeous and they were doing a "beauty" shoot for
We stopped at Antonio's office
after our exploration to see if he had returned and were
rewarded with a personal tour of one of the "castles" - Casa Sol
de Oriente (the other - Casa Sol de Occidente is located across
the bay), exclusive villas that are part of the resort. These
villas rent for US$7000 per night. Private homes are also
nestled in the mountain sides at El Careyes. According to
Antonio, the house below the castle that we toured, belongs to
British singer Seal and wife Heidi Klum.
