We had condo 7160 (first floor, building 3) for three weeks this November. It is a beautiful condo, lovingly maintained, and with all the amenities you'd need. The property manager Fulvio was great to deal with--communication was fast and clear, and I'm confident that he'd have dealt with any issues quickly if they'd arisen. The maid kept the place very clean and tidy, though it'd be nice if she had access to dishwasher detergent; she had to use dish soap in the dishwasher and we'd be greeted with a floor full of suds and no way to clean it up! LOL
The beach and grounds at the Reef are beautifully maintained. Always friendly guys wandering about gardening and looking after all the loungers and the pools. The security is great as well, with one staff member going above and beyond the call of duty on the day of the Ironman. :o)
The only downside I can think of is there's little for kids to do. We were traveling with children ages 11 and 13--while my daughter was content to swim and read on the beach, my son would have liked a basketball court or something.
Tip: you have access to the water toys (kayaks, Hobiecats) at Dive Palancar. If you're not going to have a car for your entire trip, do a HUGE grocery shop when you do have one, as there's nothing nearby if you run out of the essentials (unless tequila or rum is an essential. You can buy that at the Sabor ;o) and it's a $$$ cab ride to town and back.
