Our vacation at Costa Linda was April 10-17, 2009
We wanted a 2 bedroom so our 2 teenage daughters could joined us for this part of our vacation. My wife and I moved to Riu for April 17 -21.
When we arrived at CL a bellman greeted us and stood by with our luggage on a cart while we checked in. Check-in was slow. We were second in line and it took about 15 minutes.After 10 minutes of standing in the heat I noticed a large Igloo water cooler . The bellman said to help myself but there were no cups. So the bellman went for cups and returned with tiny 3 oz cups. We sampled the very sweet fruit punch and completed the check-in process.
Finally we had all our information and off to our room. The bellman opened our door, unloaded our luggage and waited for his tip. Then he quickly left. Our 2 bedroom had a full kitchen, 2 TVs, 2 bathrooms and a large balcony. The unit had a musty smell but appeared clean. The furniture and bedding was showing wear. The sheets were worn thin. The kitchen had the basic appliances. No ice maker. Everything in the unit was showing age. I think the maid missed 2 days
Costa Linda has a great beach. The huts are close together and most of the front row huts were taken before 7:00 every day. There were lots of small kids.. everywhere ..always in the pool. Most morning I seem people putting their towels and bags under a hut and leave for hours. There were always empty huts so not sure their need to "reserve" Our daughters said they would have preferred Palm Beach.
Food: Friday our first evening - burgers at the Turtles Nest. SLOW service. Good large burgers with a large serving of fries.
