Thank you for your testimonial. It seems that you had a great time and you liked the location. Is there any specific reason why you give us just one star? We would love to have the pleasure to host you again.

“Good Property... but not worth every penny”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed at this property from April 27th to May 1st while on a business trip. We have used this company several times before and have never had issues.

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to the property. The pool area was great with several lounge chairs and lots of sun exposure. I later learned the cushions are not put out for the furniture that require them and was disappointed since there were no beach towels. A lounge chair required 2 beach towels to keep from burning your skin against the chair.

When checking into the apartment, the property manager gave a great tour of the place with a lengthy breakdown of the rules and requirements upon checkout. Because I have stayed with this company several times before, I was surprised to learn that we needed to not only empty and take all garbage to the outdoor bin (not a big deal), but we were also required to strip each bed, place all towels and linens in a specific spot, fill the dishwasher/not leave any dishes out, and make sure any groceries that were purchased were thrown out. I have been travelling significantly for many years, and have stayed in a fair share of properties of all sorts, I have never been asked to strip the bed. Considering the price for this property, it is difficult for me to understand.

The apartment itself was great. There were 4 large bedrooms, each with a comfortable queen size bed, except one room which had 2 single beds. Each room had a great closet. The bathroom was fine, took a few attempts to figure out the hot water with the broken nozzle, as well as the broken nozzle in the sink, but not a huge deal.

The kitchen had everything needed to cook a meal. Lots of dishes and cooking ware, etc. The dishwasher was very dangerous as it was not attached to the wall/counter. When the door was opened and the drawer was rolled out to place dishes inside, the entire dishwasher would fall out of the wall, which resulted in a broken glass and a very sore toe.

The air conditioning throughout the apartment was tricky. We were able to keep the apartment cool, however the master bedroom and the bedroom to the left of the main bathroom were very hot as there was no vent to blow any cool air into them. The room to the right of the main bathroom and the room with the 2 single beds kept very cool as they both had vents.

After 4 nights at the apartment, we needed to move to another property that was pre-arranged as this property had new tenants coming. To say the least, it was not an easy transition. After a pre-determined plan the night before that the property manager would call us at noon and let us know when the new apartment would ready, she arrived at 11:30am and ordered us out in a half an hour. Trying to pack our things, strip each bed, empty each garbage and load the dishwasher was a difficult task to do in 30 minutes, but completed.

All in all, I would not stay at this property again, mainly for the reason it was above my budget that I would normally pay for a property rental and I therefore had high expectations considering the amount I was paying. This would be a great rental if it was a lot cheaper. Definitely not worth the money or the hassle.

Thank you for sharing your experience with the Tripadvisor community. We are glad that you liked the pool area. However, we do not provide cushions or towels as you can see on our web site pictures.
Your comfort and safety are our number one concern. In addition to this, we appreciate your feedback regarding the malfunctioning of the A/C and the dishwasher. Please accept our sincere apologies and we can assure that your comment has been sent to the appropriate department.
As a repeat client, the sales agent gave you a special deal to accommodate you and you pay below the market price for that property.
We hope you will consider staying with us again the next time you visit the city.

Best regards,
Julieta Rodriguez
