Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The Villa Sand was a beautiful place for us to spend our vacation. The staff was very welcoming and was a pleasure to work with during the booking process as well as helping us organize activities during our stay. The facilities and amenities provided were fantastic and top of the line. We enjoyed the remoteness of the location and the ability to truly relax and enjoy the ocean views. We can't want to return!
We came to stay at La Perla as our second choice. We had booked Solaria for two families which was a large 4 bedroom closer to town. However this property was inadvertently double booked and we had to scramble to make other arrangements. We had to rent two villas to accommodate our two families and we booked both Villa Sand and Villa Topaz. When we arrived we were happy with the accommodations. Villa Sand is on the beach and is very relaxing. Overall the property was how it was described, however it was missing some furniture and lamps. There is only one couch in the living room and the photo showed more furniture. This resulted in very limited seating in the living room. The master bedroom was very dark even with the light on and had to use a flashlight to see the safe at night. The bed in the master was very hard however the other room had a nice mattress. There were lamps in the second bedroom in the closet but none of them worked. Make sure you bring flashlight with you as the property is dark and the path lighting was turned on sporadically or not at all. The property could use a little sprucing up. The drapes were dirty and stained as was the couch. We ran the air conditioning even though it was December and don't think the villa would stay cool if it was any hotter outside. There were many good things about the property. The shower amenities were of good quality and there were enough towels for the shower and pool that we did not have to worry about drying them out. The villa was cleaned every day and overall it was very clean. The staff of Rene and Toshiva were very attentive and tried to meet all of our needs. For example there were 5 kayaks for use but only 3 sets of paddles. We pointed this out and they did order more but they did not arrive till the day of our departure. The pools could use some better and more lounge chairs as all the villas were rented and the pool got crowded. The grounds were very well maintained and they worked every day to remove the sea grass from the beach. The location is very secluded and to get to San Pedro you had to take the water taxi which only ran about every 2 hours and it was $11 per person both ways. The resort had a very nice boat which picked us up from the airport but it was not available for other uses. Overall I would recommend this location if you were not renting in high season. The cost over Christmas was high and did not feel the property warranted the Christmas price.
