Our family stayed here for a week, beginning Dec. 17, and we absolutely fell in love with the place. The location was perfect, just a stroll from lovely beach clubs and the beautiful Caribbean, but only steps from 5th Avenue shopping, dining and people watching!
Playa was crowded and busy due to holiday travelers, but we could spread out in this luxurious condo with three separate outdoor spaces: two balconies and a rooftop terrace.
Inside the condo was beautifully designed with marble floors throughout, granite countertops in the well-stocked kitchen, an entertainment center with large television and dvd player, stereo, etc. (We took advantage of the selection of dvds and had a family movie night). Beds were comfy, closets were spacious, seating was ample for dining or relaxing. The condo was spotless when we arrived and we found everything just as advertised in the literature.
The rooftop terrace was so beautiful and I wish we had more chance to use it, but in December our days were short and the evenings were cool. There was a good sized cool pool with waterfall, a palapa area with cushioned seating and dining table, and a wet bar and charcoal grill. Our daughter enjoyed sunning on the rooftop in the lounge chairs...so relaxing! We could imagine the roof to be a perfect spot for entertaining.
The condo also has a good sized pool and shower in the common area. The pool is secluded from the street but has enough depth to take a good dip after returning from the beach. The two condo buildings house only 6 units so everything was quiet and serene.
We loved watching people on 5th and 10th from the small balcony off the bedroom. Fun!
Great part of town, lots of good restaurants, dive shops close by, easy to get taxi right to your door if you go for groceries...There is not much more you could ask for as far as location and amenities.
Finally, the owner and rental contact person was great to work with and kept in touch with us before and following our stay to ensure we were satisfied. They have prepared a great instruction manual that is at the condo describing how to operate the kitchen equipment and washing machine, etc. and provides lots of suggestions to get one started off on a super vacation!
Would definitely return when traveling with our family, and thanks for a great stay!
