1 week stay in the 3 bedroom Condo in Maz
Submitted: April 15, 2011
Stayed: March 2011
We stayed with our 20 year old son, his girlfriend, and our parents (6 of us) and we rented all 3 bedrooms. The condo was clean on our arrival and there were supplies for us to use to keep it that way. The condo was convenient to the bus line as we walked outside and hailed the bus to take us either to Old Town, shopping or in the opposite direction to the water park (Mazagua). Bell hops were very helpful in giving us coupons when we left for dinner (they asked where were we going, we told them, and they would look for a free beer coupon or some sort of discount coupon for us). We normally took the bus out and a pulmonia or red truck back at night (depending on how many there were of us). We had no problems in getting around without a car. We loved staying away from the Golden Zone as the beaches were not crowded at all and heading towards the water park, we found places to stop and grab a bite to eat or drink that were very reasonable. We did not eat at the hotel. At the hotel, the pool was never crowded and we didn't have any issues in getting a chaise lounge, no matter what time we went downstairs. The bar staff was very attentive, should you be so inclined to order something while poolside. Plenty of beach towels, too. Only one time in our week did we have to wait for the towels. Jasen, the owner, called us to make sure all was well with our stay and we kept in contact via email as the condo had wi-fi - good enough that the kids were watching tv shows on their computer. The view from the balcony is GORGEOUS, we watched the sun set many nights. Out in town, we felt safe, never had any problems, and people were friendly. There is a convenience store across from the hotel where you can get ice, beer, soda, etc., just like a 7-11 but not as pricey. We bought our groceries at Mega and cooked breakfast every morning in the condo. We ate at 7 different restaurants for dinner, all delicious, and tried Mango Margaritas at 7 different places. The best Mango Margaritas were at 3 Amigos (used to be the Purple Onion). We had them during the daytime and at night when we went back for Karaoke. We went to Heathers, Juanita's, La Casa Country (great shrimp), La Costa Marinera (not as good as it used to be), Panamas (awesome!) Chili Peppers (good margaritas), Las Zarapes, Villa Italia, and more. All in all, we had a great time, would definitely rent Jasen's place again and look forward to another visit. Thanks Jasen!
