Wonderful in every way

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo in Cancun. The description of the room, views and amenities was very accurate and we liked the high quality of the furniture, appliances and supplies.
The property was very clean, very well maintained & we especially liked the double chaise lounge on the deck. The master bedroom, with its sliding glass doors that open fully to expose the room to the ocean breezes & sound of the surf, was perfect! We liked being able to watch the sunset over the lagoon from the 2nd bedroom. Also, opening the sliding doors in the bedrooms gave us terrific cross breezes so we didn't even need the air conditioning.
The infinity pool was a nice place to sit and relax. The hot tub by the pool was more warm than hot, but seemed fine for the majority of people in it. The beach lounge chairs & beach amenities were great. We spent most of our time sitting under the thatch-roofed stands. The service from the pool-side bar/cafe was also very good. Internet access in the lobby was fine so we didn't pay extra for access in the condo, though it was available.
We received emails from Sandra, who manages the condo, with details about transportion (which we took advantage of, including a stop at the grocery store) and various tours and activities which she offered to arrange. However, our plans were to sit and relax, not explore. Her service was excellent. We also met the owner who was there & he was very accommodating and helpful.
We were comforted by the excellent security both at the front gate & along the beach. Cabs were readily available across the street at Senor Frog or next to the complex at the Oxxo. here was a pharmacy right next door.
We tended to rise and go to bed with the sun & only watch a bit of TV. A TV channel guide indicating English channels would have been nice.
As we enjoy cooking, we were slightly disappointed in the lack of quality cooking equipment. While okay, the pots & pans/cooking utensils were not of the same quality as the other items in the condo. However, we realize that many who stay in such locales tend to eat out more than we do & wouldn't notice this.The hot tub on the deck was great, except it kept shutting off & then starting again rather than run continuously.
Because of Hurrican Rina, we had to cut our stay short, but the owner promised us an extra day during our next stay. We DEFINITELY recommend this location & plan to return soon!
