Casa Bendición is a very well equipped and spacious condo with everything you need and more. The property is far from downtown, which was a good thing for us. We rented a golf cart to move around, as there is not much really close to Puerta al Mar, but we spent most of the time in the property, either at the beach, swimming pool, or inside the comfortable Condo. The view from the living/dining area and terrace at Casa Bendición is simply beautiful. There are a couple of good restaurants and the turtle farm fairly close (walking distance). The turtle farm is interesting and fun.
If you are looking for a nice, quiet place to get away and relax, this is it. For a little adventure, we went swimming with dolphins one day and with whale sharks another day. Both were great experiences!
The beach at Puerta al Mar was smaller than we anticipated and not good for swimming (shallow and a weedy) but very calm so a great place to get a suntan, read under a palm tree, have a drink, and enjoy the scenery. Spectacular sunsets! We felt safe, not only in the well maintained the property, but also outside and at all times. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Richard and Michelle were very efficient and friendly making the reservation and gave us helpful information for our stay. Everything worked out very well from beginning to end.
