My girlfriend and I had a fabulous time on our Mindfulness of the Body Breath and Food Retreat. Teddi and Liz, were amazing, patient and kind instructors. I learned something new every session. We also loved the cooking classes with your amazing chefs. The food was outstanding. We didn't want to leave, but unfortunately, real life called.
We had a wonderful time at Rancho Pescadero -- there's a good chance we'll be back. The facilities are clean and spacious, service is outstanding, and the food and drinks are delicious. Surprisingly affordable for such a high-quality place!
Words cannot describe our stay at Rancho Pescadero. From the moment you arrive you feel welcomed. As you walk around the property you realize what a special place this is. The gorgeous swimming pools and multiple enticing eating areas. To the swaying palm trees leading down the beach path where you arrive on a white sand beach where all you hear is the waves crashing and birds chirping. The rooms are so well done with every need considered! Waking up under a canopy after an amazing night sleep to sit on our large patio eating our breakfast watching the waves crashing was pure heaven. The privacy and tranquility makes you feel this is your own villa. The yoga guided by a darling instructor was fabulous (which is included!) We also grabbed some boards and beach chairs and went surfing a few days (also included). Every staff member always happy to help in any of our requests and even anticipating our next need without feeling obtrusive, a true talent. Now to the Amazing food. Chef Bueno is a world class chef. The meals were so fresh and cooked to perfection with every bite a true joy. The best fish tacos and huevos rancheros we have ever had. We enjoyed our trip so much we extended it for an additional two nights. We found it to hard to leave paradise. In addition the charming town of todos santos is just a 5-10 minute drive.
We stayed at The Casablanca B&B for three glorious days recently. The whole time we were treated like family in the best sense of the word. Gabriel and Isabel are the perfect hosts in all ways. From the sublime and sumptuous breakfasts to the made-to-order coffee drinks to the king bed fit for royalty, we were in heaven. The views are spectacular, the grounds are stunning, and the owners are wonderful.
We had the good fortune to stay at Casablanca B&B in February. We were greeted with a warm hug and a delicious light dinner upon a late evening arrival! You immediately feel at home with Isabel and Gabriel - the lovliest couple you could imagine! And the food...a breakfast prepared with expertise and lots of tender loving care. Close to a wonderful beach too. Worth having a car in Todos Santos just to stay at Casablanca. One of the top places I've stayed in my 25 years of travel. Will definitely be back!!!
After spending nearly a week in La Paz, we wanted to stop over in Toto Santos for a short 2 day stay before journeying onto Cabo. We were VERY fortunate to stumble onto Casablanca B & B, and have the opportunity to meet Gabriel & Isabel. Beach and town are a short drive away, and be sure to ask for directions in advance, otherwise problems. We found it easily with directions. Bring an appetite, the food is beyond the 5 star rating above.
This is a beautiful property with ocean and city views. The breadfasts are outstanding and served either in their lovely home or on a pretty patio just outside their home. We believe that you do need a car to stay here as there is a fairly long dirt road to the property as well as a pretty long walk to the beach from the property. Our feedback to them was to add a small refrigerator and coffee maker to the rooms, as well as some eating utensils. They will happily provide anything you request and do bring a lovely early morning tray with coffee or tea and cookies prior to serving a larger meal awhatever time you request. We loved Todos Santos and truly enjoyed meeting the lovely couple who run this establishment in a very personal and warm way. And Gabriel makes outstanding capucinos and other coffee drinks at your request!
Gracious and detailed-oriented hosts who are truly committed to make you feel at home. The house is beautiful, the accomodations are comfortable and impecable and the views are fantastic. The breakfast is just wonderful: I am not sure of other places where you can experience this type of home-made gourmet breakfast. Isabel cooks everything from scratch and fresh: bread, pastries, jellies, natural juices. The main dish for breakfast is just fantastic and you will not need lunch. If you want to relax, eat excellent food, enjoy beautiful beaches and be pampered by incredible hosts, this is the place for you. I highly recommend Casablanca B&B.
My husband and I just returned from a week at Casablanca, visiting our new Mexican "family", Isabel and Gabriel, for the fourth time in 2 years. If you are the kind of person that prefers an authentic and personal experience, as opposed to a more generic resort experience, when you travel, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to stay with Isabel and Gabriel at Casablanca for awhile and experience life in Todos Santos from the perspective of a resident. The warmth and hospitality they provide creates a very personal and comfortable experience. Their two suites are simple, comfortable, exceedingly clean, and just lovely. Each morning Isabel, who is a gourmet chef, starts your day by leaving a tray with homemade biscotti and coffee on your patio. Then, she prepares an artful and delicious gourmet breakfast on the ocean-view patio, which is the kind of breakfast that will last you until dinner. If you like, she can also prepare snacks and dinner for you on the patio, which is a real treat. She and Gabriel are really special people who have become life-long friends. Casablanca is located within walking distance to Todos Santos and to a gorgeous, deserted beach in a neighborhood called LaPoza.
Casablanca is an extraordinary experience, from the moment you meet the most gracious owners, and experience their beautiful accommodations. Their treatment of us as their guests was as if we were long-lost friends or family. And the meals they provided were the best we have had in any B&B anywhere anytime. They love their guests nd it definitely shows. We would go back anytime.
It's hard to beat the 2 attractive rooms and beautiful location in the hills above Todos Santos, only a 5 minute drive (or 20 minute walk) from top notch shops and restaurants. The price is very reasonable. Best of all, Isabela and Gabriel are welcoming hosts, and the breakfasts truly are gourmet quality. Highly recommended.
My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Casablanca. The gourmet breakfast was first class. Gabriel and Isabel were perfect hosts. The only down side was that there was no air conditioning and it was a very hot time of year.
This little piece of paradise is made even better because of Isabel and Gabriel! These are truly amazing people who I feel lucky to have gotten to know. It also doesn't hurt, that Isabel is beyond gourmet when it comes to cooking! We only had a week there, but I feel like I've made friends for life. Also, Todos Santos is a gem of a town. People are friendly, the food is delicious, and beautiful art is everywhere. The beaches are stunning and unpopulated. If you are looking for a place to relax and let everyday life melt away, then Casablanca and Todos Santos are exactly what you are looking for.
We came to Todos Santos and Casablanca and found ourselves in an amazing and wonderful retreat from our everyday lives. Your hosts, Isabel and Gabriel are two of the most lovely people you will ever meet. They truly care about the happiness of their guests. Of course, the one of the best things about staying at Casablanca is the food. My god... we love great food (and visit a lot of wonderful restaurants) and were not disappointed. Isabel is a wizard in the kitchen and breakfast is at least two courses of divine creations (and includes a tray with coffee and small treats she's made that is ready and waiting for you on the patio when you wake up)! The rooms come with little essentials... beach towels, beach blankets, bottled water and other things. The space is light and airy with touches of comfort and warmth. FYI: They are happy to lone you a bike to ride into town (if you don't have a car) and actually took us into town a few times in their car (it is a 15-20 minute walk from the center of town to their home). The view from Casablanca is stunning... it looks out over the ocean from a hill and down into the valley and town inland. The beach is a 10 minute walk. Seriously, don't miss this beautiful place. We wish we had more time to stay with them!
I stayed at Casablanca with a friend and we were both blown away by the level of service and personal attention. Isabel picked me up in town (Casablanca is located a few minutes outside the city) and gave me a walking tour of sites in the town. We stopped for a bite to eat and wanted to pay for our meals (we didn't let her!) We felt like family members coming for a long overdue visit, Isabel and Gabriel made us feel so at home! And...the food is amazing!!!
Despite the fact that I don't want to let the secret out, Casablanca is truly the best B&B we have ever gone to. I would like to preface my remarks by saying that if you are looking for a victorian/antiquey type of B&B, this is not the place for you. In fact, much of Mexico is probably not for you. However, if you are looking for clean simplicity with the most fabulous hosts on the planet, you will find a home here that you wish you could never leave. My wife and I have stayed in A LOT of B&B's over the last 5 years, but this one takes the cake. It's not just the view, which is wonderful, it's not just the peacefulness (best sleep we have had in a long long time, and no chickens nearby), or the proximity to the ocean (just down the hill), or even the incredible breakfasts (huge portions of wonderful fruits, artfully prepared, followed by a meticulously prepared and presented main course). Truly the reason to go there is if you want to spend time with two of the greatest people we have ever had the pleasure to meet. While they will most certainly stay out of your way if you wish privacy, even over the phone I knew that these were special people that we would like to spend time with and get to know. Since we are always open to meeting new and wonderful people, we knew this was going to be the place for us. In fact, we continued visiting our hosts after we had departed for another previously reserved B&B in town. (which we were sorry that we did) Gabriel and Isabel thank you, dear friends, we hope to see you again soon.
We stayed 3 nights at the Casablanca B&B and were treated royally by our hosts Gabriel and Isabel. The accommodations were beautiful and very comfortable. The meals were superb. We dined one night watching the sunset over the Pacific. The breakfasts were very elegant and as we ate we were able to enjoy the ocean view. I can't say enough about what a delight our stay was there.
A month after our stay here, I can't stop talking about Casablanca. The breakfasts were truly extraordinary. Isabel clearly loves to entertain, and both Isabel and Gabriel know how to make your stay special. They greeted us with cervezas when we arrived, and every morning there was coffee & tea & a small snack before the breakfast feast an hour later. Homemade yogurt, filo pastries, shrimp enchiladas, and abundant fresh fruit and scones. The neighborhood offered the quiet and isolation we craved. We lazed in the hammock and hiked to the beach and walked to town for dinner. Our only wish is that we had stayed longer. Thank you, Isabel and Gabriel!
