Check-in is from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Special arrangements may be made for early or late check-in. On the day before or on the day of your arrival, it’s extremely helpful to us if you can tell us at what time you’ll be arriving here at Casa Gallina. It helps us to plan our day and to be sure to be nearby to greet you when you arrive. Our standard check in time is between 3 pm and 6 pm, but can often accommodate an earlier or later check in if you’ll please let us know in advance. Please do let us know. There is no “front desk” or staffed reception desk. We’ll greet you soon after you’ve arrived at your reserved casita. There will be a note hanging from the gate to your casita with your name on it so you’ll know you’re in the right place.
