This facility is primarily a group of condos some of whose owners rent out their units. We had an ocean facing unit with a balcony. The unit was clean and comfortable but did have a bit of deferred maintenance going on. We called the owner, Amilio, from the airport and he met us at the unit, completed the paperwork and then showed us around the facilities. True, the manditory valet service could be slow at specific times of high demand but could be planned for. The elevators were our biggest complaint as they were slow and would not always stop at the designated floor unless the button was held. This is NOT a hotel and as such one should not expect it to be staffed according to a hotel standard. Our unit was a good value with an accomodating owner. We used our cell phones and had no connectivity issues. We definitely would stay in unit 1128 again.
