Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Susan and John. My husband and I enjoyed every moment of our stay. The condo was perfectly appointed with everything we needed. The view was amazing and we could not have imagined it any better. Staying here was so comfortable, we felt instantly at home. The infinity pool at the condo was spectacular and the ability to hop on the shuttle to head down to the Beach club was a nice alternative if we wanted a change. The property management team of Nancy and Sally looked after us completely. We greatly appreciated that Nancy met us at the airport and although it was late, she made a stop at the MEGA and accompanied us through the store to pick up the essentials to get us through for a few days before our big grocery shop. The staff at Alamar was great and we always felt safe on the property and off. Although we were trying to use Spanish as much as we could to talk with the staff, most spoke English very well and we never ran into any problems. We loved La Cruz with all of the live entertainment and great food. The fish market daily and the Sunday market at the Marina were awesome. I could go on forever about how much we enjoyed the place and that we wish we were still there but overall I would sum it up with the following: The most relaxing, enjoyable, vacation in Mexico anyone could image. Thank you, Dean and Shona Powers, British Columbia CANADA

Impressive! Amazing! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I decided to book a trip in 2 weeks for a family trip before our daughter goes off to college so, we stayed in this lovely condo for a week with our two daughters, 18 & 15 years old. The minute we entered the Alamar grounds you could tell how much pride & care the staff take in maintaining this property. The pools & the restroom facilities were immaculate. The elevators were mopped out & wiped down every morning, the walkways on each floor were mopped every morning & even the parking garage was swept out! The Alamar staff were always very friendly.

The main reason we pick this condo was because of the owner Susan. She was quick to respond back to me regarding any & all questions I had before booking, even on a holiday weekend. Once I booked the condo I was immediately contacted by the property manager Sally who was great in arranging airport pick up & drop off. We were picked up by a wonderful lady, Nancy, who then took us to the Mega for some shopping. Once we arrived at the condo and walked in the door, I knew we had chosen the right condo. It was amazing! The views from the balcony were beautiful. The condo was super clean & well stocked from everything you need in the kitchen, to bath towels, beach towels, to laundry soap. The beds were comfortable & it was nice to run the A/C a little at night to keep the humidity down a bit. This condo is VERY WELL MAINTAINED! There is construction going on right beside the condo, a new road is going in. The only reason I'm mentioning this is because at first I was concerned there would be a lot of noise. But, it was not an issue at all. The condo is so well built that you did not hear it in the mornings if you wanted to sleep in a bit. And by the time we wanted to sit on the balcony, they had quit working for the day.

We are adventurous so, we rented a car. This was the best thing we did! We rented from the guys at Gecko & it was easy & very reasonable. Rent a car! We went north and got to explore, swim, boogie board all the wonderful beaches a taxi won't/can't take you to. My family enjoyed Susan's condo and I'm positive yours will too!

Spectacular View, Gorgeous Interior

  • 4 of 5

We've recently come home from a lovely trip to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. We'd stayed in town before but wanted a change of scenery and this property delivered!! We awoke every morning to beautiful sunrises and happened to be there during a full moon, so were also treated to "moonrises" as well! The condo was modern, clean, and we found the security folks to be very helpful in helping us get taxi service to get us to and from town. The pool was well maintained and refreshing - very close to the condo. The restaurant and beach were a bit further away than we expected, just a very short taxi ride away. We wouldn't exactly call it "walking distance" unless you're in very good physical condition and don't mind a strenuous hike back up the hill when you're done!! All of our interactions with the owners were via email, and answered promptly. Susan was very helpful in making sure that we'd have all that we needed when staying in their lovely home!! We've always enjoyed stopping in at Philo's Bar & Restaurant for the live music & ribs!! We discovered Frascati's during this visit and came back 2 more times before we had to go back home to the States!! Thanks again, Susan, for making our stay special! Jorge, the property manager, was particularly helpful as well!!

This condo is a very nice vacation rental. John and Su have done a fantastic job decorating this beautiful 2 bedroom condo. View over looking bay from balcony and master bedroom is FANTASTIC. Condo and adjacent beach club were very relaxing. Town of La Cruz offers many fine resturants and fun bars. Thanks John and Su for a great vacation.

What an amazing sunrise from this location! We really enjoyed staying here on our vacation. Clean and new it was a great location to go north up the coast as well as to drop into the city from. The owners were great to work with and took care of our every question. We look forward to our next chance!

Super Vacation Spot!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking to get out of our Canadian winter for a week and were fortunate to find this gem. We looked at a number of places, but this one caught our eye because of the location and view! The complex consists of two 10 story buildings and built on a hill side. The view over Banaras Bay and the new marina is just awesome. There is always activity in the bay, and is better than watching TV. The condo unit is new, everything spotless and no bugs!!! There is lots of room for a family of 4 or more as there are two big bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The water supply is filtered at the kitchen tap and in the refrigerator, so nothing to worry about in the unit. We would lay on the bed before going to sleep and look out the big windows out at the lights in the bay and surrounding area. Beautiful!! The complex has a great infinity pool area and also a private beach area which the condo shuttle will take you and pick you up. They are building a restaurant there and the bar is already done, although not running as of this review.

The owners are absolutely the best people to deal with. They accommodated our every need and responded promptly to all e-mails and telephone calls. With respect to the owners, we treated this unit as if we owned it ourselves. If you, your friends, family are looking for a great place to vacation, this is it. The food and peoples of the village of La Cruz, one kilometer from the units, and with-in easy walking range, is really worth going. Go to Philo's for the best ribs and chicken ever, and on the week ends, live music by the owner and his 8 piece group. Great dancing, reasonable prices and great food, and your 5 minutes from your condo by shuttle or cab.
