The owner was super fast to respond to inquiries. He was honest, respectful and more than accommodating at all times. The property was just as it was listed. It was huge, clean, luxurious and really in the perfect location.... 1/2 block from the beach. Rooftop pool with amazing views - we had it practically all to ourselves during the week. The building staff was polite and responsive. If you have a large group don't hesitate to rent this place - it is an excellent value for the price! My family reunion in Santa Marta was a huge success due to us renting this apartment. So many good memories!
I will say that some of the A/C units did not work at top efficiency which may not be a big concern for some but it bothered me as I am not used to the heat. However, building maintenance was quick to respond and they did some work to increase cold output of 2 units.
One other issue was bad odors coming from some of the floor drains but again, building maintenance came quickly to try to help with the issue.
I've been burned by homeaway in the past by really misrepresented properties but this experience with the owner Claude and the Rodadero penthouse apartment has restored my faith.
