It is hard to put into words why Casa de Sofia is so different. Why were we able to completely rest? We have been in beautiful coastal homes (ie: Caymans, Outer Banks, etc) but nothing compares to this. We have stayed at beautiful well ran resorts where by day 2 they know our children by name and what drinks we prefer. But at Casa de Sofia, we were 100% removed from our “real” lives. I sat around and noticed all sorts of things – like the swallows at sunset. Our group was able to exercise each day at the pool, walking, snorkeling, hiking, going to the gym, etc.
