My wife and I are 6 year repeat visitors to Vida del Mar. We love this place, having stayed from 1-3 weeks. This is the second year we have rented this unit in the Chiapas building. We plan to return again next year. The Vida grounds are safe and beautiful, the other unit owners are friendly and welcoming. The owners Ron and Audrey are wonderful, responsive, and sincerely interested in making your stay pleasant. We love this unit for its premiere location with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and it's close proximity to 1 of 3 Vida pools...great for my wife's early morning lap swimming. This unit has all the amenities unlike some units we have rented. The flat screen TV with Shaw Dish Network, in unit WiFi and telephone, in unit washer and dryer, and generously equipped kitchen with extensive dish collection, coffee pot, toaster oven, microwave, stove, refrigerator, and even a power juicer for making fresh orange juice, make for a great stay. While Vida del Mar was developed years ago, this unit has been beautifully remodeled. It has a great shower with plenty of pressure and hot water, and a veranda with an unbeatable "table with a view"!
We never close the windows, allowing the tropical breezes to flow through the unit. All areas also have operational fans if desired. We have found this unit to be the best value at Vida due to the premiere location and extensive amenities. The owners even make available their membership to the Santiago Beach Club, which we use daily. Pictures are an accurate representation of the unit as we found it this year. The unit was freshly cleaned and ready upon our arrival.
My husband and I went looking for a romantic escape to the sun and sea and we found the perfect spot. The condo was spotless, well equipped and the views were better than we expected! It was great to have all the amenities this condo offers, we will pack lighter the next time we come as we washed our clothes as needed. The kitchen was great,it was perfect to be able to prepare our own simple meals, the bed was comfortable and it was nice to have TV in English. The Vida del Mar complex is well cared for with responsive staff and the grounds were beautiful. This condo is located in the best building - the perfect center of the small bay's view and nothing in the way. Just like the photos. The owners were so helpful and made it easy to book. We took long walks and saw hundreds of birds, went out fishing one day and got skunked! We walked down the road to Palama Real for Mexican food and Maragritias (careful). We will be back!
Mostly it was well. But bad kitchen smell ,due to old groceries in pantry and leaking faucet causing mold under sink. Aluminum doors were in disrepair. Repair workers came in to work on doors while we were there. Spent most of the day working it.They were to come the day earlier when were visiting town. We felt somewhat intruded upon because wrong day and for so long, and the amount of people in there. Left without cleaning up . My wife and I spent over one hour cleaning up floor, electronic equipment, glass windows,and moving furniture back. They had as many as five workers in there at a time. Dining table over head light blinked on and off after the light was turned off for five minutes. No hot water.Recent remodel of unit was nice. TV would turn off, after on for a while, for no apparent reason. DVD/CD player was on it last legs. Salt air plays rough on everything.Beautiful grounds!!! Lots of birds, good snorkeling , every one there was nice to us!!! Great view.!! We notified maintenance of leak, and the owner of the other maintenance problems We would stay there again if the kitchen smells were gone. We did have a good time though. Owner was very helpful. Listing was accurate.
The condo was comfortable and well equipped. The views are spectacular both above and below the water's surface. (Great snorkeling!) It was the perfect spot to just get away!
My wife and I stayed in this condo in January of 2009, and very much enjoyed the experience. After visiting Vida del Mar, I am of the opinion that the Chiapas building probably has the best location of any from which to enjoy the view. While our experience in seeing the inside of other units is obviously limited, I am also led to believe that #197 is one of the better appointed units. The owner is very concerned that her guests have a positive experience, and certainly went out of her way to solve a very minor problem that we had with internet service. We found the Vida staff to be friendly, helpful, and efficient. Because of the close proximity of the ocean, the sound of the waves can be quite loud, especially at night, and Audrey's advice to bring ear plugs should be heeded. The location is somewhat remote, and unless one has a vehicle, getting into town and back to shop can be expensive and inconvenient. If one is looking for a beautiful place to relax in very comfortable surroundings, I would definitely reccommend it.
Vida was absolutely beautiful! The view from the balcony was breath-taking and the breeze from the ocean was delightful. L'Recif is a wonderful restaurant. I ate there several times during my stay. Having the pool right next to the unit was a nice perk. I think I was in it at least once a day.
Thank you so much for the use of your unit!
