6 friends and I stayed in unit 101 of the Corto Maltes condo's, which are right beside Encanto. The condo was absolutely gorgeous. It was exactly like the pictures except even bigger than we expected. Check-in was at 2pm but we arrived an hour early. We thought the condo would have already been cleaned since it was only one hour before our expected arrival time, but this was not the case. We were supposed to get maid service every other day but the maid skipped one day so we had to clean ourselves. This was the only disappointment of the trip. The building and beach area were very clean, as well as the pool area at the Encanto. The bar downstairs was lively every night, and beautifuly deocrated and lighten with candles. waiters walk around the condo beach area serving drinks and food. The drinks are delicious, not the cheap stuff you would find at an all inclusive. Our experience with the food was equally pleasant. The location on the condo was the best part! We literally stepped outside of the condo and had everything at our disposal; bars, restaurants, shops, etc. Walmart Superstore was a 10 minute walk, which was where we bought small grocery's. Unless you are really set on eating in all the time DO NOT buy too many groceries because they will goto waste. We went out for dinner every night even though we said we wouldn't. We were there during a festival so there was music playing at all times of the day and night. If you want peace and quiet then do not travel to the downtown playa area in the beginning of January because you will be very disappointed. During this time of the year it's VERY lively on the streets, bars, and clubs, and if you aren't the type to join this type of environment then it may bother you. Overall, we had a fantastic time and couldn't really ask for anything more. I definitely recommend staying in unit 101 if you are travelign wit ha group of 5-7 people.
