We couldn’t have been more pleased with the apartment in Rio Grande! Our family [2 teen-age boys, 85 yr. old MIL and my husband and I] were completely comfortable, surrounded by the most incredibly well-stocked kitchen, [even herbs and spices and enough glassware to host a party of 25!], new beach towels, numerous beach coolers, boogie board and beach chairs. There were also some pool toys, great for younger kids. Upon arrival, we were at first concerned [for our 85 yr. old mother], that there was no A/C on the main floor, but soon realized that the ocean breezes and 3 fans would keep us comfortably cool. [Upstairs bedrooms each had A/C, which we used at night].
We concur with previous reviews that everything was spotless and in very good condition. The cleaning supplies and toilet paper/towels/napkins in the laundry room were very handy - I've never encountered such thoroughness in supplies!
Throughout the week, we were amazed at how deserted it was – often we were the only people on the beach and we never saw anyone at the pool! Amusing us at various times was “Mo-ped Man” who patrolled the grounds religiously, keeping us safe from harm!! By the end of our stay, he was waving at us, so we know we didn’t break any rules!
This was one of the most relaxing vacations we’ve had in a very long time. We highly recommend staying with Jose and know we’ll be back!!
Make sure you get reservations for the Bio-Bay tour – they sell out quickly. Catamaran snorkeling trips are terrific, as is the Rain Forest, which is nearby. Check out the Kiosk Restaurant Row, which is East of the property - there are close to 30? places to eat, all fairly reasonably priced and have a wide variety of cuisine.
