We spent a week at the Atalaya Towers and were a bit concerned after we booked our condo through RCI for the week. Several reviews posted on tripadvisor were quite negative. We decided that since it was too late to change that we were going to make the most of it.
When we arrived the staff was very friendly and quite helpful. We entered out condo and were quite surprised to find such a nice accommodation. Apparently there had been some major renovations that had taken place. I seem to remember that someone had written a comment about security and how the magnetic cards were never changed. Good news the locks are now keyed. We felt completely safe.
All of their units are ocean front. Very easy access to the beach. Pool is open late and kept very clean (three of our children are lifeguards so they'd know). We only had access to the indoor pool as we were there in February and won't have wanted to use the outdoor pool. It was nice looking. The girls and my husband did go in the ocean-silly people!
You need to remember that you are not going to a brand new resort where everything is marble and shining. You're going to a condo complex that has been around for a few years and is a full time residence to some families. It's clean, in a great location, great kitchen with lots of dishes (bring your own frying pan-I bought one there) and if you're as lucky as we were you'll be able to see the dolphins morning swim a few meters off shore heading south between 8 and 10 am.
