Condo was as described on website. Perfect. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and panoramic views from living area and master bedroom and a full size patio. Beach outside condo is idyllic. A surf beach with a strong undertow but we swam as we are strong swimmers. Beach in front of Hilton is a short walk and a beautiful swimmable bay. Whales were in front of the condo all week jumping and putting on an amazing show. We had wonderful massages on the beach just adjacent to the condo. Would thoroughly recommend. Casa del mar is a wonderful resort and the pool and bar were wonderful albeit expensive. $12 for margaritas and the food was astronomically high. Wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. Pool area was usually deserted and there are beach chairs for guests on the beach that are not part of the beach club. Beach vendors werein abundance but not pushy. horseback riding was popular and lots of fun$35-$40 each for an hour.
Wireless internet was a huge bonus. Unable to get English speaking TV programmes on Tv but we didn't try very hard and it wasn't a huge problem.
Would love to return again, SOON. I am looking for cheap flights! Thank you.
Only negative was the patio 'hot tub'. It is really a bath and took two hours to get to an appropriate heat. We only used it once. A nice touch but needs updating.
