Love love Mar Y Sol
Absolutely love this slice of heaven, great complex, fab condo! Well equipped kitchen! Amazing views.
I don't usually do reviews but this property is an exceptional value for the money. A full kitchen and separate bedroom/living room for less than half the price of the nearby resort hotel
.The views are tremendous. Miles of beautiful beach in either direction. The condo is very close to the water so you can easily see sea life. We saw a whale from the deck!
The condo is clean and well appointed. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you would need to make your meals.
A previous review mentioned that there was a loose railing on the balcony. We did not find this to be the case so it must have been repaired. The locals said they had some unusual November storms so that might have caused the problem. The furniture seemed fine now.
The owner is very easy to work with and answered all our questions.
Los Barriles is a pleasure and has some wonderful restaurants. The draw here are the beaches and the ocean. We went fishing one day and caught 2 dorado which a local restaurant prepared for our dinner.
All in all a great place!
Our two week stay in unit 202
Mar Y Sol and unit 202 is in a great location with easy access to the beach, swimming pool, town and surrounding area. We did however we have some concerns with the unit.
1. The entry lock was working poorly the first few days to the point it quit working all to gather. We bought and installed new batteries and restored the lock to working order.
2.The sofa is worn out and beyond cleaning.
3. The shower head needs to be replaced. The water coming out of it feels like tinny bb’s.
4. Shower head rack keeps falling down, soap, shampoo. And all.
5. Shower curtain is to short, allowing for water to flood the bathroom floor.
6. Closet safe cannot be opened for use.
7. Patio railing is in danger of falling off.
8. Air conditioning unit is the bedroom is very moldy and the closets smell of it.
We would like to rent unit 202 for an annual two week stay if it would be safer and more comfortable.
We always appreciate feedback from guests as we are constantly striving to make things better. We always encourage guests to contact us or our local management company if they have concerns.
Our first visit to the East Cape
We enjoyed our 7 day stay and the property, even while not "in town", was very convenient to everywhere we needed to be. Beautiful oceanfront views and spectacular sunrises! Just a few concerns related to the property: The pool was not clean when we arrived and was not available to use until the 3rd day. The living room sofa also seemed a bit worn and needed cleaning. Also, the bath towels all had a very musty odor and we had to wash them 2x to try to get the smell out, even then there was a lingering odor. Might consider replacing them, given the ocean climate and frequent use. Otherwise, we loved Los Barilles and plan to return!
Thanks for the review.
We were somewhat surprised by the guests concerns because we ourselves stayed at our condo the next weekend and did not notice a problem with the couch, towels or the pool. We generally have an excellent cleaning service. Fresh towels have not been a problem in the past but we do encourage guests to contact our local management company if they have any issues
This is a condo building and these guests arrived just after a major rain storm hit the area. Los Barriles in late August is much more hot and humid than at other times of year. The pool I’m sure had leaves and debris In it over the first weekend but the condo management got it sorted out as quickly as possible. One disadvantage of renting through vrbo is that it is not a hotel so sometimes these things are unavoidable. Having said that we appreciate guests letting us know when they have problems. We want guests to be happy and strive to address any problems as quickly as possible.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
