We've pretty much settled into life here aboard the Sapphire. Deborah is starting to figure out directions here on board boat so getting from point A to point B is slowly becoming second nature. From my perspective I’ve adapted my routine, which includes room service in the morning while we review the daily Princess Patter newsletter for activities. Yesterday I started off with a Photography @ Sea class that focused on Lighting Techniques, so a group of about 20 of ...
... But it doesn't come naturally anymore. And when I can connect, I do. And especially when I'm alone, and don't really feel like initiating small talk with anyone I don't already know, which is sort of where I've been at lately. I blame my job. I small talk all the time. I meet new people all the time. Imagine, every time you go to work you work with new people. It gets tiresome, telling your story over and over. And trying to remember 6 more peoples names and ...
... diced potato, both of which were very good. The pork was perfectly cooked – still a little pink around the bone and not dried out as it can be if grilled for too long – and the sauce was went exceptionally well with the meat – light, tasty but not overpowering. I had a couple of rum and cokes and they gave me a house-made digestive based on vodka in a shot glass when I’d finished my meal.

When he fired off the engine, we were shocked to learn that one of the blades on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Isabel Puerto Vallarta
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Isabel in Puerto Vallarta. We were recommended to the place by good friends; so we had high expectations of our accomodations and they were pretty much met. Since this was our first visit to this fine city, the hotel manager, Brenda, was very helpful in getting us situated not only in our apartment but also with loads of information of places to see, eat and do, especially restaurants. Sometimes we forget we're on vacation and start stressing about making reservations and who we should contact...Brenda made this all very easy..like your own personal assistant. Another on site resident is Juanito. He pretty much makes sure the hotel grounds are in perfect working condition. He is also able to make taxi calls for you and anything else that you might need. And not to forget Isabel the cleaning person. She makes sure your room is spotless, and it was!
You will love Casa Isabel
Our beautiful apartment style room had an amazing view of the Bay and downtown. The pool area is the perfect place to spend the afternoon. Very conveniently located to old town Vallarta - just a quick walk down the hill. Staff is very accomodating and helpful - they will truly make you feel comfortable, relaxed and at home during your stay.
This stylish, brand new boutique hotel is a must. Set within a hillside that offers an unbelievable panaramic view of Banderos Bay, these large, fully-furnished suites reflect a modern-design and are pristine clean. Image having a coffee or a meal from your room and watching the sun rise or set, or the city's nightly fireworks. This yellow-colored hotel feautres a lovely pool area with also a hot tub, bar, cooking grills, lounge chairs and red umbrellas -- all set within an abundance of exotic flowers and plants. A 5-minute walk down the hill, and you are in the best shopping and dinning area of Puerto Vallarata. The staff are like family! Brenda, the hotel and marketing director, is the residential expert on Puerta Vallarata, while the owners, Isabel and David, are the most graciously kind, generous and fun-loving hosts. Casa Isable is the best kept secret: Contemporary design, bright, colorful, super-clean, wonderful staff and nicely-priced. Shhhh! Don't tell too many people!
Casa Isabel - best in Puerto Vallarta
A wonderful place to stay. The rooms are exquisitely appointed and charming. The view of the Bay is spectacular and the hotel is wonderful in all respects. Brenda, Juan and the owners will just do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. We loved our stay here in February 2005.
This is the place to stay in Puerto Vallarta, just beautiful.
We've just returned from a week at Casa Isabel. We know the Owner's, from Toronto, and although we've known that they had a place in Puerto Vallarta we never had the chance to go there, we've always done the Florida and Jamaica thing.
A fabulous retreat into Paradise
Not only is one given,all the amenities,one expects in a Premier Hotel,but also one receives ALL the esthetics which makes for a VERY memorable and enjoyable stay,whether it is for 1 week,2 weeks or longer..The owners,Dave and Isabel Manore,ENSURE that your visit with THEM,is firstly,friendly, but also efficient,in that every need is made available,through the accommodating staff;Juanito et all...It resembles being in a friend's home and HAVING FUN....What more can one say;what more would one want...We are very happy that there IS such a place, in this fast-pace world.......
The best for quality, view and host. Must see.
If you are looking for a hotel for a spectacular, romantic escape - this is it. If you're looking for a place for a group of friends to gather and have a terrific time - this is it. If you're looking for a great family vacation - keep looking, this isn't it. Casa Isabel is a wonderful, adult only inn that caters to the grown-up traveler. Whether you want to hang out at the small but lovely pool terrace chatting with fellow guests or laze around your well-equipped, comfortable room admiring the views of PV and Bandaras Bay with your sweetie, you would be hardpressed to find a more lovely location or a more helpful staff. Ah, the staff. Truly what makes this inn special. Always smiling, always gracious, and the most gracious and helpful of all is the manager, Brenda. Want your refrigerator stocked before you come - no problem. Looking for the best beaches - she'll draw you a map. Wondering where to go to eat - she has a book of restaurant recommendations (and not just the ones everyone has heard of) and will gladly make reservations for you. Want to get pampered with a massage, facial, pedicure - she's checked them out personally and will send you to the ones she uses for herself. Looking for the best shopping - she knows where to go and where to avoid. The wealth of information she has (as well as her infectious enthusiasm for PV) alone would make this inn a standout, even if it weren't as lovely as it is. I've been at 5-star resorts whose staff could learn a lot from her.
