My husband and I have traveled quite a bit to Playas del Coco, renting condos several times and actually bought one this year so we are very familiar with the area and process. We rented the Tropical Gardens unit through Airbnb. We were put in a different complex than what was advertised (put in Green Turtle, booked for Jade Beach)...

My husband and I planned this vacation with intentions to look for a place to move to. Playas de Las Palmas far exceeded our expectations. I am sure it will for you if you set your bar at a reasonable level. Remember where you are going and if you expect to stay and experience the Marriott or Hyatt Regency levels,...

Horrible experience. Not only that but we were scammed into purchasing the time share and guess what? They do not answer phones nor e-mails. The place is just getting more run down every year. The refrigerator did not work and we were finally given a two bedroom apt which was much better. We thought this type of unit is what...

Two years ago we purchased a "fraction" of a lovely Bahia Turquesa 3-story condo that featured a huge rooftop patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean, 2 bedrooms /...

Very nice apartment, well equipped with kitchen tools and very clean. We had flat in condo Jade B, with safe box and all necessary things. I suggest to other travellers. Swimming pool was also nice and clean.

Terms when arrived were nothing like those discussed prior to arrival. Infested with ants in beds. Air conditioner didn't work. No screens on windows so we were forced to run air conditioning for the whole trip. Service for repairs took for ever to get a response. Washing machine was broken the whole time we were there. Always nice but just...

Beautiful gardens, lots of pools. close to the beach and best way to go to town is along the beach. Need more staff that respond to requests in a...

Traveling with a family you need space to move around in so we opted for an apartment. It is beautiful and clean with good service too. We liked being near to town so we could walk and have meals in different places.

“Tell them if you have physical limitations such as bad knees or hips. Make sure that everything is ready for occupancy such as working TV and hot water. They seem to try and have most rooms with a good view.”
