The great - the Condo has beautiful finishing's. They really remodeled it nicely, the kitchen is incredible with pretty much everything you would need to get by. The TV is huge with a high level DirecTV package (NFL package as an example). The views are unbeatable, pretty much a view from every room of every part of the peninsula. The location is right in the middle of Salinas so very easy to walk either way for entertainment or a stroll on the beach. Wi-Fi available in the condo is probably as fast as you can get in Salinas - very solid speed and reliable. The building is secure and the security attendants are great - they even washed our car for us one day! Jaime is very helpful and speaks perfect English.
The not so perfect - the location is very central and we were there on a holiday weekend...the windows are too thin to protect you from the massive amounts of noise that is Salinas on a weekend (probably any normal weekend as well). There is soccer being played at the yacht club until midnight on the weekend with the noise coming straight to the unit. Then the back side where the master is, is subject to the endless car alarms chirping and police spinning their siren to let the police house know across the street they were checking in. It became much much better during the week when everyone left town - but you still get the occasional car alarm that no one will shut off all night long. Nothing much to do about this down side of the location other than not stay over a weekend and bring some ear plugs.
The one thing the owners could do something about - there was clearly some very heavy smoking going on in the condo for quite some time. At least one room there was no possibility to get the smell out as it was extremely bad - probably needs new paint at the very least to try to shake the smell - most likely would take replacing all the furnishings in that bedroom.
One last thing that could be improved pretty easily - we were only given one key...so if for some reason we wanted to split up we were stuck with having to coordinate schedules.
Overall - a very nice place. Be prepared for noise on a weekend and to either not use the super smoky bedroom (or hopefully they try to shake the scent).
