Nice condo. Relaxing Beach.

  • 4 of 5

This condo is really nice. The resort offers free kayaks, bikes, volley balls. The pool was really cold for this time of the year. The patio table was broken. And the water heater kept turning off. I had to light the pilot about 3 times. But overall this is a nice and relaxing condo. The owner replies very quickly to questions. Thanks Janet!

worst experience ever

  • 2 of 5

In our 12+ trips to Mexico, this was the worst ever... And we have stayed in some pretty basic places.

Upon arrival, security didn't know why we were there and sent us to the main office to check in. They kindly checked us in and then offered us a 90min presentation of the community... huh?

The pool was ice cold and tide was out at least 1 mile the two days we stayed... the locals told us this was the case 85% of the time. Didn't see that anywhere in the property description.

House is a shell... cute decor yes, but the fridge didn't work half the time and the ac unit is set to only go from 72 to 74.

There was no water pressure in one of the bathrooms the entire first day and because it was a home, staff could not help. Owners response, 'that's not my responsibility.'

The dishwasher didn't work.

The dvd player in the master didn't work and all but one remote had no batteries.

The dining table outside was broken, as was the trash can lid and half the lights in the house.

There were no rags, no hand towels, no paper towels, and no trash bags and the master jacuzzi didn't hold water.

After two days of transferring food and beverages between the freezer and the fridge to keep it cool, trying to correspond with the owner and trekking to town to buy supplies, we called it quits and moved to town.

Owner called my decision to move my family a 'hasty ' one.

I have three kids and we went to Mexico to relax... that did not happen here. Renters beware.

Relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

Had a great trip. Condo was in great condition. If you enjoy swimming in the ocean, just plan your days around high tide. Overall it was great for my family. My kids really enjoyed exploring during low tide. Also, there was great communication with the owners. My only complaint was that the dishwasher and dryer didn't work.

Owner's Response: Hi Carla I am so glad that you and your family had a great time at the condo. I am so sorry that those appliances weren't in working order. I thought it was repaired, but the part was defective. I do appreciate your kind words though and hopefully you will consider my condo for another vacation. Janet

Great Vacation!!

I would like to thank you Janet for giving myself and my family the opportunity to stay at such great place we had the best time ever. It was a vacation we really needed and we couldn't of asked for more. My family had a great time especially because we had the whole beach ourselves:) and look forward to have the opportunity to stay there again. Again Thank You Very Much.

Great Condo!

  • 4 of 5

Jan's condo is beautiful and very well decorated! It is very spacious and both the master bedroom and living area have ocean views. There is an open outside patio you can enjoy the sunset from. The condo was new, very clean, and well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals.

As a side note, the area is a bit far from the city center, so I would recommend bringing in all of your groceries before you check in that way you dont have to leave the condo.

All in all, Laguna Shores is more of a family oriented resort. It is very relaxing and quiet during the day and night. Its a beautiful new subdivision perfect for a little RNR.

Thanks for everything Jan!
