We went with a group of friends. The condo style rooms were top notch... Viking appliances, felt very safe, beautiful beaches. But know this is a quieter side of the island... Go with idea of relaxing and exploring. The staff was very helpful but there is only one restaurant on property.

If you want a quiet getaway to an island paradise, this is the place for you. The rooms are surprisingly huge, and most have walls of windows that open to huge decks for entertaining or dining. Full kitchens with Viking appliances, well appointed living and dining rooms, large bedrooms with king size beds (or two queens), most units with washers...

The resort is beautifully designed with Vikings appliances. The ground is beautifully landscaped. The private beach is gorgeous. Taxi to town is about $10. Bottles of water are provided. We bought some wine in town and brought back to the room, because the room is stocked with glasses. Porto, the restaurant is great (I will write a separate review). We...

We booked 10 "beachside" villas because their website at the time portrayed the property to be a charming boutique resort with 35 rental units (the website has since updated that information along with the misleading photo of what appeared to be a beach villa but is really their restaurant). So you can imagine our shock when we drove up to...

I rented the 3 bedroom penthouse from Sep 24-28, 2013. Upon arrival we checked in and followed a golf cart to the building. No assistance with luggage was offered. My wife and I, my friend and his wife carried everything into the building. So that's the first thing that stands out. The unit itself (121) has central air that works....

I was sorely disappointed with Balcones del Atlantico. The website, the photos, and the reviews really paint a different picture than the experience we had. I still can't figure out why the glowing reviews here. Guests are greeting by name by the security guard when arriving at the entrance, and it is quite a nice gesture. However, the property itself...

The unit we were provided was really sub standard. No curtains in the bedroom but a cheap broken plastic blind, the instruction sheet on the lamp from Ikea was still on the lampshades, no light fixtures on ceiling. In plain sight, instead of a dishwasher, was a dirty bucket ( probably what they use to clean the floor). There were...
