    Unfriendly Staff Marred the Stay In An Otherwise Beautiful Place

    Beautiful property and setting right on the Pacific coast. Rooms were very comfortable, although they had no place to sit and write. Our breakfasts were satisfactory but nothing special. Our main complaint, however, was the attitude of the restaurant staff. The only place for wi-fi access was in the main building and there the only place to sit was in the restaurant. The staff was clearly not happy having us there. We came away with the impression they felt it would be a great place to work if it were not for the damn customers. We took it as a reflection of how they were treated by the hotel management.

    We've made our final drive back toward San Jose, in order to fly out tomorrow. We can't believe the time is almost ended and we look back on our many experiences with happiness and fullness. As we see more and more big homes of Canadians and Estado Unidenses and read more signs and menus in English, we see how lucky we are to have found this sweet little place here called La Encantada. It's a picture perfect, ...

    Front Porch Observations

    From my vantage
    point on this screened porch, as I look across a 20 foot yard, and a single
    lane gravel road, it is palm trees, beach and ocean. The waves are a never-ending source of sound
    and motion. The gravel road is a
    never-ending source of amusement.
    Occasionally during the day there may be bikes, motor scooters, ...

    ... I am…at least for now.” I told him that whatever he chose to do in life, to do something that makes him happy…something he enjoys. I explained that everything else would fall into place, if he just followed that principle. At first he looked a bit upset, then deeply thoughtful. “Nobody ever told me that, Vic. That’s so true. I guess I never thought about life that way. I will always remember this.” And now I ...
