Building tips: On the sand tennis court at night, just ask for the night lighting at the front desk. The beach features private palapas for shade and a wait staff can bring you snacks and drinks. During peak weeks(Christmas/New Year/Easter) there MAY be a sign up sheet on a wall near the elevators for the next days use of beach palapas and pool furniture. Sign up generally starts at 1 p.m.
Make sure to bring the beige beach towels in the condo with the embroidered 'BVG 305-S' to the pool area so that security knows your party is staying at the building and does not ask you to leave the property.
Maid service available upon request. Drinking water is available downstairs or at the gate house, just exchange an empty container in the condo and a new one will be delivered up for 20 pesos.
Spanish words around the complex:
PB - lobby level on elevators
Basura - Trash
Alberca - Swimming pool
Money - Pesos - Rates: If you want to exchange for pesos, an easy way is at the ATM, or go to any casa de cambio, the nearest is INTERCAM, located in Ixtapa across from Bancomer, just past Ruben's Hamburgers.
New national law prevents bank tellers from exchanging US Dollars at the teller window.
Beware of paying with USD on the street or in small establishments, they may try to give you a 10:1 exchange rate, usually the actual rate is higher than that, and they are making an extra 20% on your Dollars!!
Condo details: Please do not anything but small amounts of soft food down the garbage disposal. The disposals in Mexico are not nearly as strong as those in the US or Canada. There is a drain in front of the sink on the floor that is for excess water, however if too much is put down the disposal, dark water will seep up for a moment. We advise that guests do not use the disposal at all.
The garbage can be easily disposed of by exiting the condo and going through the white slatted door behind the elevators, you will see the small metal door to drop the bag of trash down to the dumpster below.
The condo is cleaned before and after your stay by our maid, these cleanings are included in the agreed rate. If you prefer to have additional cleanings, please let the owner know to arrange for them at an additional cost.
