This was our 7th trip to Bucerias and we decided to switch from an all inclusive to a condo. We chose Suites Costa Dorada because it is a "resort condo" complete with pool, poolside bar, restaurant on site and right on the beach, giving us the best of both worlds. You can't beat the location. During a short walk to El Centro you will find high end restaurants and boutiques, you will find excellent reasonably priced cafés, you will find the famous flea market, you will find it all in Bucerias. It really has everything you could want in one small, quaint, Mexican town. From street vendors to restaurants to local bars (where the music is excellent.)
We stayed in suite 702, second floor, alongside the pool with a terrific view of the ocean from the huge balcony. One bedroom, two bathrooms. Extremely clean (thanks to our housekeeper), spacious, bright and sunny but with room darkening shades if you want them to help keep the room cool. Air conditioning in both the livingroom and bedroom. Tons of storage space, dressers, drawers, closets. And a small in room safe. One large room contains the living, kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and a small two burner cooktop range. No oven. Full fridge, microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans, and dishes etc.
The staff are fabulous, from the front desk to housekeepers and groundskeepers. So helpful and friendly and very hard working. Communication was never a problem, many spoke English.
We had a few issues with our wifi which were quickly corrected. Large bottled water and ice were provided at a minimal fee and brought to our suite. The pool was great, but a little crowded at times due to it being the Easter week which created some problems finding chaise lounges in the shade. I didn't expect the "saving the chair" early in the morning thing then not showing up until afternoon, but that was just over the Easter week. After that chaise lounges were plentiful.
We loved the Costa Dorada and hope to return soon. I highly recommend it.
