Almost wonderful...but partly terrible
In Mexico there is no such thing as unscented detergent...and yet somehow the better hotels have bed sheets that do not smell like fake “Mountain Freshness”. Our property manager spent more time lecturing me about how I should have told him about my wife’s allergy to perfumed detergent ahead of time (it literally causes her to develop bronchitis)...than he did trying to fix the problem. Admittedly he would have had to purchase new sheets; that smell cannot be washed out. I could tell right away that request was beyond Remixto’s level of hospitality.
Yes, I should have mentioned her allergy ahead of time—but how could I know those sheets would smell so bad? She had to sleep on the sofa, and she developed a terrible back pain. (Yes, I realize the bed folds out, but there were no sheets for it.)
Meanwhile the noise level was relentless—loud construction all day long next door plus hard partying down the hall late into the night. The sliding glass doors do not lock; they only pretend to lock. Yes, the building superintendent tried to repair it, but that released the lock at the other end. Those glass doors cannot be locked. Don’t believe me? Go see for yourself. I am not especially worried about theft, but women DO worry...and there was a construction crew literally looking into our apartment the whole time.
The apartment’s layout is wonderful, and I could have adapted to the problems by myself. But my wife was totally uncomfortable, so I requested a partial refund in order to move somewhere else. I got the standard corporate response: NO. I understand that Remixto’s and/or VRBO’s official policy probably prohibits refunds. But there is something called GOODWILL (la buena voluntad) that would have been a more human response in this situation. It builds good karma. I would have repaid the favor. We abandoned the apartment and checked into a hotel.
I may do business with Remixto via VRBO again, because some of its properties look promising, but I will know not to trust the company going forward. Sometimes in the past I have written to property managers/owners, “Please level with me, what are the drawbacks with this place?” and usually they give me a straight answer: “Long walk to the subway”...something like that. Going forward I know not to expect that courtesy from Remixto. (They could not have anticipated the smelly detergent problem, but they could have warned me about the noise.)
No complaints about the building personnel—very courteous.
This was the perfect place for our trip. Great location, close to everything we wanted to do. Would stay here again
