Pros - location, location, location! We rented the car for the week (although it really wasn't needed, but it did come in handy on the one rainy day), and driving to Stanza Mare was very easy! I would suggest you take a look at google maps to familiarize yourself with the route because there are few (almost no) signs on the roads. Stanza Mare is nestled in a very safe location. We walked to dinner most nights. Citrus was one of our favorite restaurants. The beach in front of the condos is the cleanest, and safest for miles. We walked 2 hours on the beach in both directions and could not find a better beach area. The condo was clean and the kitchen was sufficient to cook basic breakfasts and lunch. We preferred to eat out for dinner.
The pool and pool area was cleaned daily. The security guard Carlos was very nice and always looking out for the residents and guests. We had the pool to ourselves practically everyday, but there were plenty of chairs and umbrellas.
The property manager Linda greeted us upon arrival and was very courteous and thorough.
The only CON - there was a mildew smell to the sheets & pillow covers (I read this from a former review and brought dryer sheets from home- that seemed to take care of the problem)
We will come back to Stanza Mare, and have recommended theses condos to several other travelers. (We booked travel arrangements through "El Tour Caribe' after extensive research - they have had nothing but 5 star reviews and I would highly recommend them for anyone traveling here! They truly make you feel like a VIP)
