We wanted to spend less money on a place to stay and more money on things to do on this vacation. Was just what we needed. We didn't stay at the resort much since we were at the beach all day long or in town doing fishing or dolphin watching. Wasn't anything wonderful but a place to stay while we... More

My husband and I went here for our first wedding anniversary this year. It was nice! For the price, it was great. It was exactly what we were looking for. The only complaints we had... were super minor. 1. No outside lights worked, we had to pull light bulbs from lamps to put outside, not a big deal, but slightly... More

We stayed in unit 211. It has been updated quite a bit since the photos shown on the site--new paint, new outdoor furniture, and 2 blenders! It was a wonderfully quiet complex. We opted to buy a beach pass rather than lug our gear over the 5 minute walk the complex touted. HOWEVER, housekeeping is lax. I had to unload... More

Thank you for your nice review of the El Cortez property. We are happy that you enjoyed our nice quiet community, but the unit you rented is not in our Rental Program and does not get any housekeeping services from us. The unit is rented privately online by the Owner and she provides her own housekeeping service. I will certainly... More

El Cortez had just about the last condo in Port A by the time the family could coordinate vacations; our usual complex was booked. The rates are reasonable and the overall complex is nice. There is a walkway/boardwalk to the beach, but it a pretty good hike if you are hauling more than a towel, so we drove our stuff... More

We stayed in unit 104. My husband and I had our daughter and grandchildren with us. The decor was so dated, and there wasn't any beach motif. I felt like I was in some midwestern home where elderly people live. The shower stall in the small bathroom was so tiny it was uncomfortable to move around in. The twin beds... More

Stayed this past weekend with some friends. It is a bit away from town, and apparently you cannot drive a golf cart to it because it's on 361 and it's prohibited. Older condo complex, but the pool was clean and the place was safe. The unit we rented was nicely decorated. Bit of a hike to the beach, so make... More
