lots of plusses, a few minuses

this condo was very accurately described. It was adorable with its Mexican tile. It was very spacious for a one bedroom and had an extra large porch compared to other units. The caretakers were excellent and available. However, the shower unit was almost unusable due to excessive rattling and difficulty in regulating the temperature. By the time you got it right, the hot water was gone. The last day the pipes burst (no surprise given the racket the shower caused) and the entire apartment was flooded as we were rushing to get ready to leave! Also unexpected was the noise level! Clubs across the street were loud and rowdy till at least 1:30 every night which meant we had to close all the doors to block out even a bit of the noise:( the location in terms of 5th Avenue and the beach was excellent.
Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for your input and feedback.

I checked with my property caretakers about the issue reported with the pipe bursting and flooding caused. The report I received is that the issue was with the kitchen sink/faucet pipe. The rubber joint of the kitchen faucet pipe broke due to corrosion. A new entire pipe was installed and the problem was resolved.

About the shower, when the condo was constructed the shower knobs were inverted by mistake; such has caused some confusion in terms of regulating the water for some guests. Sorry about the confusion, we will relabel the knobs properly.

I will notify my property manager about the noise caused by the hotel lounge bar located across the street to see if they can regulate their hours.

Thank you for your feedback, we will work to address your concerns.

Very Nice

This was a great place to stay and the owner was very prompt and responsive. We were looked after very well by the caretaker and cleaners. My only complaint would be about the internet which was spotty at best and only worked in the corner of the apartment by the door. I needed this for my job so ended up spending a lot of time in Starbucks instead. Also there was not even basics in the kitchen like oil so did end up spending money on that. Overall though great place to stay and would stay again if i did not need internet.

Nous avons séjourné du 13 au 27 mars 2011. Condo confortable et très bien situé, près de la 5è avenue, de la plage Mamitas Beach, d'un supermarché et bien d'autres. C'était notre première fois en condo et nous avons passé de très belles vacances. Le personnel est très accueillant et compétent. C'est un endroit que nous recommandons.

We stayed at Palma 'Sica' from January 28 - February 7, 2011. All of our past vacations have been to all inclusives but after staying here, I don't think I would do an the resort vacation again. The condo was beautiful. It was spacious, clean and had all the ammenities of home. The caretaker and his family where always available for questions and are very helpful. Having never rented a condo before we were a little apprehensive but extremely happy that we did this. Jose (owner) was very helpful and the rental process went off without a hitch. The beach is only 3 short blocks from the condo and we went there everyday. The beach is a public beach so there is a small cost each day for the chairs and umbrellas but it is one of the best beaches we have ever encountered. You are able to order drinks and food from a waiter on the beach, but after a few days we prepared our own food and brought it in our backpack. Coolers are allowed only if you are not renting the chairs. There is a rooftop pool with chairs and shaded areas, outdoor barbeque (unfortunately we did not use but will when we return).

We ate our meals both in the condo and at restaurants. There is an italian restaurant at the corner of 26th & 5th and the food was amazing. As we are Italian, we do not find very many restaurants that truly serve authentic Italian food, but this one did. Ate there four times. If you go along 10th street you will find excellent restaurants that are much cheaper than the ones on 5th Ave. and we found the food to be excellent.

All in all, thank you Jose for sharing your condo with us and we definately hope to return to Palma 'Sica' and hopefully for a much longer stay next time.

Perfectly located, you get what you pay for

My two friends and I were overall very satisfied with our stay here. Our first priority was price and our second was location. The price was great and much less than other condos during the New Year season, and I cant say enough about the location. Close to the beach, but far enough away from the super busy/touristy strips. No problem with noise. Now to the condo, we were 3 girls and i have no idea how it would fit 4 people. Two of us shared the king size bed and one slept on the pullout sofa. The pullout is pretty small and both beds are not very comfortable. We all felt like the condo could use some "airing out" had a stuffy smell to it and the linens should be replaced. because they were old,itchy and thin. Our frist night we didnt know where the linens for the pullout were located but we emailed and someone got back to us the next day. We only had hot water for the shower on the first night. Loved the kitchen. THe toaster and coffee maker were great and we definietly saved money by making breakfast. The pool and upstairs solarium were nice additions as well. We felt very safe at Palma Sica. It should be updated though , a DVD player would be nice....and Jose the owner is great and super professional!
