Wow, what a beautiful condo!!!
The pictures do not do this place justice!! It is spacious, well appointed with high end appliances & everything you would need for your stay, along with comfortable beds and pillows; spotlessly clean. When we did have any problems or questions the management agent was there immediately. The building/grounds were maintained and the 24hr security was extremely helpful with packages/luggage. The beach club, right across the street, was such a great asset as the waves on the beach were a bit much for my 5 year old. There are frequent inexpensive local buses that stop close to the property but since there are no formal schedules, which I could find on-line, you will have to ask either the drivers or the locals as to their schedules and asking in Spanish would help; this is a much, much cheaper alternative to taxis, which can be expensive in this area. One supermarket I recommend is the AutoMercado but again you cannot walk there and need some form of transportation which I am thankful to the management agent for the ride round-trip. We did encounter some glitches which one cannot blame on the owner or are just a result of regular wear & tear: a) we could not access the apartment's WiFi but we were able to access someone else's in the building b) the refrigerator ice maker was not working although we were able to make ice the old fashion way which took a day or two c) the A/C thermostat was not working as well, so to shut off the A/C we had to cut the power at the circuit breaker but most nights we did not need the A/C only during the day time d) one has to keep in mind that you are in the middle of the jungle and creepy crawly things abound and I am more than sure that this is a problem throughout this whole region (exclusive property or not) but we had a 4 legged visitor nightly as well as insects which easily slipped in from the big gaps under the sliding doors e) it is a walk to town but not too far, I do recommend some form of transportation be it ATV, bicycle, moped, or car which will also save on the costs to the airport round-trip which can be more than $140 f) the condo does not have a working phone so it is recommended to rent a cell phone while in CR if you are going to stay a while, it will help when booking transportation & excursions. All in all I believe if you are a nature lover this is the place for you and would have given this place an excellent rating but for the problems we encountered. I would recommend this place!
