Beautiful place to stay
Check in was very easy and the property owner was very helpful. He answered all my questions promptly.
I would definitely stay here again.
Breath taking views
We stayed for 2 weeks and had a great time. The resort is nice and was pretty quiet for the most part. During the week days we pretty much had the pool and beach to ourselves! There are plenty of cabanas and seats all of the time. The pool is enormous and gorgeous. Downfall is the resort has very stupid rules at the pool. For example the have a no touching rule so I couldn’t hug my boyfriend etc. You can only drink in one jacuzzi and no music allowed. Good thing is you can do what you want at the beach. We saw people night swimming etc.
The place was in good condition overall. It was as described. Some items can use attention or replacing like the master bedroom bed is horribly loud! Also the toaster oven should be replaced as well. The microwave and refrigerator are new and the bathrooms are pretty updated. The living room area and balcony were my favorite. You can sit out there staring at the amazing views all day. Maybe adding some cards or board games to the house would be a good idea too.
There are 3 TVs in the house with cable. We had some WiFi cable issues where it went out our second day there and they didn’t come out to fix it until 5 days later but Victor was great and in communication and even went to buy us a portable WiFi until the issue was resolved. 👍🏻
There is also WiFi at the pool area and it reaches some areas at the beach.
Overall a great vacation and we are looking forward to going back! Thanks Victor! See you soon.

We enjoyed our stay. The overall property was in excellent condition and we'll maintained. Security on site. The condo was also in very good condition. The appliances we're brand new and kitchen was well equipped. We did a fair amount of cooking. Condo was within walking distance of a couple of small grocery stores and several good restaurants.
Great resort bad unit
I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I was when we arrived. Here is a list of things you should never have to deal with:
Unit not ready till 7:00 PM
Door on oven broken
Toilets flushed by themselves every 5 minutes
Faucets so limed up barely any water
Shower diverter in guest bath inoperable
I could go on but what's the point.
On the other hand every thing about the resort was spot on. If you decide to vacation here definitely find a different unit.
A comment to Homeaway. I dont know how you monitor your rentals but for the very first time in renting through you I was completely disappointed. It appears you may have become a take the money and run organization
Definitely not a 5 star condo!
This could be a 3 or 4 star condo, but for a 5 star many things should be replaced and improved.Don't expect to cook in this kitchen.The oven and the dishwasher don't work, there are little black BUGS in the kitchen cabinets, pans are scraped, electric stove is dirty and not working properly.
The bathrooms should be renovated (faucets and shower curtains are disgusting,.).The master bedroom is spacious but very dark.There is only one small window facing the corridor.There must be something wrong with the plumbing.Every ten minutes there are very loud noises coming from the bathroom which wake you up in the middle of the night.All pillows on the chairs are very dirty, for six persons there are only 3 beach towels and four towels in the bathroom.
The pool and the beach area are great but don't expect to swim in the sea because it is very shallow.If you stay in this area you must rent a car otherwise it's not possible to buy groceries you need for cooking.You have to go to San Pedro to get everything else but something to drink (don't expect to see any prices in these supermarkets).
The main reason for my negative review (my first one after many years of traveling in the Caribbean) is the owner of the condo and his behaviour. He says that he always answers all the questions but the truth is that he only responds the questions he wants and if you let him know that there is something wrong with the appartment he tries to convince you that you are the only person who ever mentioned this problem and that there is something wrong with you not with the appartment. At the end of our stay he actually blackmailed me. I asked him if we could check out later than 11 am because when we arrived, the appartment was cleaned at 8 pm and not at 2 pm as it should be (I cleaned the terrace and the living room myself so that we had a place to sit while waiting for the cleaning lady).I expected him to check with other guests if maybe they plan to check in later. After a very long talk with him (more or less his talking and me listening,he promissed we can check out at 2 pm if I GIVE HIM A 5 STAR REVIEW. His request really shocked me. Never in my life I've been told what to do or write so we checked out before 11 am and I am writing this review only to aware other travelers what they can expect from this owner. I am sure that he will find a tone of excuses for my review and the situation in the appartment because this is his way of dealing with customers
We replace fix items as they are reported, sometimes things break unexpectedly, cook top and oven have just been replaced (brand new), more towels have been bought but 7 towels for 6 people were not that bad to begin with, plus more are available upon request if need be, pots and pans, there is plenty of cookware and utensils, the majority of my guests have had great stays overall during the years with very few minor incidents few and apart in between, but of course you can't please everybody, the comments are here and other websites where my property is also listed and of course none of those people were blackmailed to do anything, plenty of repeat customers over the years are proof of that, also anyone can check with the reception desk to find out how diligent and quick I try to resolve any type of issues when they arise (they don't work for me so their opinion is not biased), I'm sorry you feel that way.
