We stayed in Playa Samara at Alta Vista Condominium in april of 2013. The weather was incredible with not one drop of rain. When we arrived after driving through town and scoping out other accommodations in the area, we were thrilled to be staying at Alta Vista Condos. We were greeted by a family of monkeys that were jumping from branch to branch and later on during our stay we enjoyed taking pictures and watching them from the observation deck. A photographers dream!
We stayed on the second floor in a 2bedroom and were blown away. The kitchen was phenomenal! It had everything you would find in your kitchen at home and the appliances were newer and in great condition. We prepared several meals during our stay and the preparation went off with out a hitch. The bedrooms and living room have ceiling to floor windows that display breathtaking views of the beach as well as the sunrises and sunsets. The condo is about a block to the beach which is fantastic!! The bathrooms were clean and the bows on the tp and toilette were a nice touch as well as the towel swans on the beds. And this is very worth mentioning, the master bath shower (double shower heads) was AMAZING!! All in all it was very welcoming and it felt like a home away from home. It was also nice having a caretaker on the premise at night and Zelda and Zorro patrolling the property. We felt safe and secure and they were great company.
It's a bit of a walk into town (about 10mins walking), so if your not a walker, definitely rent a bike. There is plenty to do in town as well as plenty of places to eat and the concierge was very helpful pointing everything out and scheduling some activities for us. I highly recommend the fishing!! My husband and his friend went out and between the 2 caught 9 sail fish and a Dorado. They couldn't have had a better experience. Can't wait to book our next trip at Alta Vista Condo's
