“Fantastic View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We stayed in this unit for 4 weeks and thoroughly loved it. The first thing you see as soon as you walk in the door is the Caribbean sea. You also have this wonderful view from the master bedroom. We were very comfortable here for our extended stay, the kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal or you are right on fifth Ave where there are lots of wonderful restaurants. There is a bakery called chez celine right next door where we bought fresh baked bread everyday, and you must try the Apple Pie that they have at the coffee cafe that is located right under the Bosque de los aluxes building. A new wine store just opened in the same block (we were their first customers) so is very handy. The Private plunge pool is big enough that we bought a couple of floaties across the street and spent many afternoons floating in the cool water, fantastic!! We really liked this condo, from the wonderful view, the plunge pool , the comfy beds to the great location right on fifth Ave and only a couple of blocks to the beach.The vonage phone that we used to call back to Canada for free was an added bonus, also the elevator came in very handy after a trip to the grocery store. There were great views from the roof that can only be enhanced by the addition of some more furniture to make this a more usable space. Thanks so much Barbara.

There was only one bit of a downside to our stay and that was the check-in. This was no fault of the owner but was the rental company Playa Paradise Rentals. We had previously agreed to a down-payment of 700.00 US dollars and when we got there they wanted 1000.00 US. We were also to get the use of the Vonage phone and a local cellphone along with extra keys and the garage door opener. All of this was denied at check in. Fortunately we have traveled enough that we knew we could straighten this all out. It meant a trip to Playa Paradise Rentals office the next day which we did and for the most part things got straightened out. Make sure you bring copies of all e-mails and other documents with you to prove what has been agreed to. The local cellphone never did work and the gym passes showed up a couple of days later. We were fortunate to meet the owner while we were there and voiced our concerns to her. I hope it was all just misunderstandings and must say that check-out went much better. Don't let this spoil your vacation as we still loved the place and had a great trip.
