We stayed at this condo for two weeks in February. Booking and check-in were a breeze. Carmen always responded promptly to all my questions. When we arrived we were greeted by Felipe, Carmen's husband.
This is a very spacious condo, bigger than it may seem on the photos. It has everything you need for your stay, especially if you like to cook your own meals. Complimentary water, beer, cleaning supplies were a nice bonus. Felipe kindly explained everything to us and was very quick to respond when we contacted him during our stay.
The views from the terrace are simply terrific. Words can't describe how beautiful the Caribbean sea is.
We found the bed to be quite comfortable and we slept well and would even slept better if it had not been for the wind. It was very windy on some days. We did not turn the AC on as it was not very hot even during the day.
Tips for guests. As you walk out of the complex go left about 100 yards and across the street there will be a small convenience store called OXXO which has all the basic groceries, booze, tobacco, etc. If you want to really stock up on food, don't go to Walmart where most of expats go. I found food and especially vegetables not very fresh there. Instead, take a bus at a stop just outside the complex and go to Chedraui. It's a big grocery store in the center of Hotel Zone with lots of small stores and restaurants around it. Just tell the driver to let you know where to get off. Besides, Chedraui is closer to the complex and cheaper than the so much touted Walmart. Make sure you have small change in local currency to pay the fare (10.5 pesos) which is about 60 cents. Don't exchange a lot of dollars for pesos. Chedraui accepts major credit cards and dollars at a very good rate.
All in all, we had a very nice stay and we would definitely come back.
Thanks Carmen and Felipe!
