We had an unplanned/unbooked stay in Room 112 at Pueblo Real. Our stay was not part of any vacation rental or timeshare group. The condo is 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with a kitchen, living area, and covered patio. My rating would be much higher if the price had been much lower. We paid $175 per night for part of the stay (using a credit card) and $145 per night for the other part (paying with cash). Either way, it was far over-priced for the condition of the condo and the cleaning service provided (which was almost non-existent).
The condo smelled mouldy, the bed was not comfortable and didn't seem clean, there was a faint sewer smell in the bathroom, the hot water in the shower ran for a couple minutes only, there was only 1 key for two couples (they eventually did cut another key), and we needed to buy the basics for the kitchen (ie. coffee filters, salt, detergent, dish cloth). We left all of those things and wonder if they will stay in the condo for the next guests.
In terms of the property itself, the location requires a car or taxi or bike if you want to go anywhere - although there was a shuttle into Quepos at least one day during our stay. The location is not necessarily bad or good - it all depends on what you want. The grounds of the property (including the pool and pool area) are really nice.
You could buy drinks at the pool during the day and could have meals at a very nearby restaurant - it didn't always seem open so be aware of that if you are depending on them for all your meals. We were gone from morning to evening on all our days so I don't have anymore information on meals/drinks at or near the complex.
We have friends who own/have owned condos in the complex and some of the condos are very nice...however, Room 112 is not. Many of the other people staying at Pueblo Real during our stay were very pleased. As I said in the beginning, the condo would have been perfectly fine for a much lower price. We don't travel in luxury, nor do we want to, and we aren't demanding or complainers - we will happily stay in all kinds of accommodations based on a fair price...however, this was NOT a fair price for what we received.
