This beautifully decorated one bedroom condo, one bathroom condo, is located in west building at beautiful Marbella del Caribe building at the Isla Verde avenue touristic area and beach. You will enjoy spectacular views from our step out, 16th floor balcony overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, steps away from a beautiful sandy beach.
You have your choice of beaches to swim or snorkel,or you may choose to enjoy the pool located directly on the first level of marbella del caribe building.
Just steps away from the front of our building there are restaurants, hotels, casinos, sport bars, pharmacies and more.
Our building has 24 hour security and direct access to the Isla Verde Beach.
The condo has one parking space assigned. Also washer/dryer inside. Wireless internet is included.
Many other beach activities are available.Towels and linens are provided.
This was my first time here provided by the Isla Verde Realty and the view was great but the condo was in need of some work. As I had read some of the reviews I thought was this the same unit they were describing. If so,what happened since then?
The bathroom was not great as the shower would leak out over the floor. The closet door was falling apart and the tiles were old. It looked dirty and worn. Only having two towels for a two week stay was ridiculous. The WIFI only worked when standing beside the locked closet door, move away and the connection was lost. The kitchen was small but usable. No blankets for the bed and the pillow cases were left in the dryer. The only positive thing about this condo was the view and the living room. If you are looking for a one bedroom with a view and dont care about the rest then this will meet your expectations. Last but not least was the customer service of the Realty Office (Jorge) which is seriously in need of some upgrading .From unanswered emails and phone calls from the beginning to forgetting things for the condo and the reminders that were forgotten made this experience a nightmare. If someday I return this unit would not be one of my choices.
This is my 2nd time staying in a condo provided by the Isla Verde Realty Group. I must say...once again....I was very pleased with my stay. The condo is lovely and has everything you will need. I loved everything about it. There was plenty of utensils (and they weren't rusted), an oven for baking (as I used it several times), a compact washer/dryer is also in the unit....which was great!! The only thing I would request is a blender....as I love making my health smoothies. The bed was nice and firm (as I love a firm bed). The refrig was a nice size and...and I must add...IT WAS CLEAN!! It also had an ice-maker, which made it nice to not have to go out and get ice. The view from the 16th floor is absolutely AMAZING!!! If you are looking for a 1-bedroom condo with a lovely beachfront view....this will most definitely meet your expectations. ...and you will love the staff from Jorge (who takes no time in taking care of any problems) to the young ladies who work in the Isla Verde Realty Office...and the office is located right there within the building, which makes it very convenient. Lastly....they are very quick to return your deposit, (a major plus) as I received my deposit back within 3 days. Again, thanks Isla verde Realty Group....as I will continue to do business with a group who takes pride in their condos and customers...see you upon my return...as I will be returning December 4th - 14th 2016..
We have just completed a stay in this condo.
We are a couple in our late 50s who have rented condos in various locations. We are always a bit nervous about whether the condo will live up to its description and photos. We were worried about this one as there were few reviews and the most recent was not entirely positive.
We could not have been more happy walking in for the first time. It was lovely!
There had clearly been furnishings added recently. The living room had a floor lamp for reading, new decorative pillows and a new club chair in the corner by the window. The nice patio chairs had chair pads and ottomans not shown in the photos.
There was a new credenza (a hall type table) in the dining room area, very handy for sunglasses and such.
The bedroom had a new high dresser, mirror and night tables with storage. The bedding was of nice quality and the bed comfortable (a bit on the firm side!). No TV in the bedroom which we would not likely have turned on anyway!
The internet code is posted in the condo and works well. The TV is good quality with lots of channels including the major US networks, CNN and lots more. There is a DVD player.
The air conditioning worked well.
The condo is quite well equipped. Lots of towels including 2 large ones we used as beach towels, extra pillows and sheets. The bathroom was modern, not damp or musty (we left the door open when taking showers as there were just the two of us). The shower design did allow for some water to get on the floor which we did use a towel to dry after using.
We did not cook very much but found dishes, cutlery and glasses. The kitchen is small with 2 people in it but that is true of most 1 bedroom condos we have rented. The fridge is large and modern, we liked having the ice maker.
We used the washer and dryer when we first arrived after a cruise, it is a small apartment size set but did the job. This unit is actually a 2 bedroom unit with one bedroom locked off which is apparently why it has a washer and dryer when other 1bedroom units in the building don't.
We did rent chairs and sometimes an umbrella from the fellow on the beach, we saw one beach chair on the balcony, there may have been more in the closet.
The view is of course magnificent. There are no screens on the windows (this seemed to be true of most units) which made us reluctant to leave the sliding door open for any length of time however we did get over that and enjoyed the breeze.
We do hope to return!
Exceptional location. Apartment fulfilled our needs. Significant improvements were needed though:
- TV was broken down since the very first day and it was not replaced.
- We needed to ask for an extra fumigation since the first one seemed to be "not enough".
- The bathroom was terribly hot and dump.
Good value for the money.
I chose this unit mainly because of the view, and we were not disappointed! Perfect, oceanfront views from the 16th floor balcony. On our last day, we spent part of the morning watching two manatees feeding directly in front of the condo! Jorge was easy to work with, and always easy to contact prior to and during our stay. Our cab from the airport didn't know exactly where the condo was located, so he had to call Jorge in the middle of the night, and he graciously helped the cabbie find it. It was a bit confusing at first, because there are two buildings by the same name, but once we found out we were in the west building, getting in the unit was easy. The main living/dining area were beautiful, fully updated and thoroughly enjoyable, and the floor to ceiling sliding doors were perfect for allowing the outdoors to come in! The kitchen was very small and cramped, but worked fine for the two of us. My only complaint would be that there was a blender in the unit, but not all of the pieces! Jorge, I meant to mention that to you. Loved having the washer/dryer in the unit, as well as the ceiling fans in living and bedroom. We never used the ac, as it was not needed. One patio chair was broken upon arrival, but we found camp chairs in a closet and used one of those. Hopefully the chair will be fixed or replaced.
There were no beach towels in the unit, but we used bath towels, and rented chairs on the beach ($4/day). The cooler was a great addition, and we used it everyday at the beach. The full size fridge/freezer had an automatic ice maker, so we never had to buy ice, which was nice.
We didn't know if the tap water was potable, so we didn't drink it, but once we stopped by Jorge's office (downstairs), he informed us that he only drinks bottled water. He also gave us a few "local" recs for restaurants, and they were spot on!
Lastly, the unit had one set of keys, and to access the beach, you had to have a gate key, so going to the beach separately was not an option. We didn't ask for another gate key, but it would have been handy to have one for each person.
Overall, we felt very secure/safe in our unit and loved the view we woke up to every day. For the most part, we didn't hear any neighbors and had a very relaxing, solitary experience when we were in the unit.
Thank you Jorge for providing the accommodations that made our stay so enjoyable.
