Visited for a week March 15 through March 22nd and truly enjoyed our stay. The place is clean, well equipped, feels safe, located perfectly within walking distance to some of the best cafes and restaurants with spacious patio and a million dollar view.
We met Nathalia at check-in and she walked us to the condo and showed us pretty much everything we needed to know. She was very friendly and answered all of our questions right away, and that helped set the tone for a great vacation. Having a small kitchen was great, although we used it less than we were planning, simply because the place is so close to amazing dining spots so we ended up eating out most of the time. Patio was a great space where we spent a lot of time,a hammock is there if you want to use it as well. We also enjoyed visits from Iggy the Iguana, various birds and listening to jungle sounds of all types, including howler monkeys that dominated the space. We chose to go with this space for the view and central location and it did not disappoint. The view is just out of this world, I found myself mesmerized by it for stretches at a time. I don't think photos even do it justice. Pool is short walk down the stairs and was a nice way to cool off, we had it to ourselves most of the time which was pretty incredible. AC mini split worked great, and we turned it off each time we left the apartment to conserve energy.
For me and my GF this was a perfect space for our vacation but we tend to go with the flow and not worry about small details. If you would like to try something different than 5 star hotels or all inclusive results, this place may be for you. Here are potential cons: the entire condo complex/hotel feels like it could use a fresh coat of paint. That includes hotel grounds and the pool. For some, the noise from a nearby café and road noise may be a drawback although it does die down in the evenings and café was closed for two days we were there, so we didn't mind. As some have mentioned, there are a lot of stairs, so perhaps this is not ideal for someone who has problems with walking up a few flights, although if you use the upstairs entrance, you really don't have to. All in all, this was a fantastic place to stay, we couldn't have hoped for more. Loved it, thank you Nathalia!
