Perfect Home Away From Home
Staying at this condo was an incredible experience. As a young couple, we loved how close in proximity it was to the town, bars, restaurants, and beach. Although there were apartments closer to the town, it was nice to be slightly removed (only about a 10 minute walk) because the actual town can be quite noisy at night. In terms of the beach, you walk for 5 minutes and you are there. The ocean is bath water temperature, and the waves are calm enough to lounge in the water and swim. The condo has all the amenities you would need, including a great balcony view of the pool and ocean. BEING UPSTAIRS IS A PLUS! The balcony is bigger than the bottom units, and you don't have to worry about unwanted bugs as much. You have a better view as well, and it stays a little cooler because you get the ocean breeze. There is a convenience store about 100 feet away that has everything that you would need if you are feeling lazy, and would rather not make the 7 minute walk to the grocery store. There is also an ice cream parlor and an authentic Tico restaurant about 2 minutes away on foot. The place is cleaned every week and the owners are very accommodating to any needs or inquiries. Every morning you will be able to listen to the frogs, tropical birds, and howler monkeys that hang out right across the street. There is a pasture on the other side of the condo that has wild horses roaming about. BBQ parties were a must every weekend. The complex is gated and there is a guard there 24/7, although this wasn't necessary considering the area was very safe. The condo is quite spacious and could fit 5 adults easily. We didn't have a car, so for our weekend excursions, we would rent from Alamo which was located in town. We are in our 20's and found the town to have no shortage of entertainment, i.e. kayaking, scuba, snorkeling, horseback riding, reggae nights, clubs/bars, restaurants, gym, and boating. I also work from my computer, and was very impressed with the internet speed/WIFI. We called Las Palmeras our home for two months, and would have stayed longer if we could. Lovely place in all regards.
