well staged photos

We stated at Horafeliz just last week. The pictures do not reflect the place accurately. It is not even the blue color in the pictures. While Dani was helpful, I cannot say it was enough for me to want to go back. Everything is worn, rusted or tired looking. The furniture is all hard and straight backed. the "couch" is a concrete slab with a 2 inch foam pad. The stove needed a lighter to light burner. the bathroom light switch didn't work most times. It is close to the cool shops and restaurants on the north end of 5th ave. The beach is further than listed but is a easily walkable distance. This was our 7th trip to Playa in seven years and we choose the condo based on websites and this is the first time we were not completely happy with our stay. The area is very safe and the condo was clean. The dogs barking across the street were loud a few nights. We visited with other people staying there and they were all pleasant. Over all it is safe, it is clean, the owners were helpful, but if you are looking for a condo comfort like you find in the USA or Canada, this may not be for you.
Owner's Response: Wow, i didn’t see this coming!
We’ve never got a less than 5/5 review so far .
We are very proud of our condo and our guests are always very happy and they come back to visit us very often.
We live at the condo and we like to take care of all our guests the better way we can.
Now … about this review I would like to spend a few words:
The condo is not blue colour anymore… it’s true! Excuse us for renovate/refresh the all building and change the colour to a light cream and chocolate colour , all our neighbours, friends and guests just love it ! I will put a new picture on the website as soon as possible.
This unit in particular is a 2 bedrooms apartment with a large living room with a 6 feet couch with a lot of giants pillows , polyurethane foam seat cover in 100% cotton fabric, we always found it very comfy and no one ever complained about it.
The stove needs a lighter to light burners ! yes it’s true … I don’t understand what the problem is.
The beach is really a few steps from the condo: less than 200 meters ! there is no way someone could lie about this! (try google maps!)
This is a very quiet and nice and safe area, “mariachi” are playing music for a while during the afternoon and everybody is just happy and relaxed. .. I don’t hear dogs barking during the night (?).
80% of our guests are from the States and Canada, we’ve been taking care of them over the last 9 years and i feel very lucky because I can share time with friendly, happy and pleasant people all the time.
