We just spent 9 glorious day at Stanza Mare. The condo is perfectly suited with all the amenities you will need. The furniture was well appointed, comfortable and clean. This condo has everything you need. We ate breakfast everyday and used the grill a couple times for lunch & dinner. We went on 5 excursions that were so much fun. We swam with the sharks and manatee's, went snorkeling 3 times , went to a Luna dinner / dancing performance , speedboats, shopping and the best one was Saona Island (the island is so beautiful , I recommend this to everyone) . Our tour representative was Pastor Nunez (Turi Adventure) he was the BEST. He took extra time outside of his normal working hours to make sure we had everything we wanted. If you plan on doing excursions make sure you book with him. (Tell him Pam &Chris said hello) . The security guard Valentine made us feel very safe. We walked the beach in both directions and never felt unsafe. My husband worked out at the "El Gym" everyday and even though he speaks no Spanish he said he still felt fine there. We ate pizza at the small bistro around the corner (Jeannie our waitress was great) We also ate at Danny Boys and the food was good. The onsite "Sharky's is good for lunch & dinner. they will also bring drinks and food to you on the beach. The owner is a nice guy that we had several good conversations with. I recommend grocery shopping at the Super Pola at the San Juan center. Food items are comparable to U.S. We did not like the small market around the corner from the condo. We appreciated Linda taking the time to answer all of our questions. We were a little nervous when we scheduled our trip because everyone we know were doing "Resorts- all inclusive" but we love to travel this way and rent private condo's. After our first day there all of our apprehensions were gone and we felt very comfortable and enjoyed our time there immensely. We are looking forward to staying in this same condo next year and looking forward to seeing Pastor & Valentine as both of them made our stay very enjoyable.
