The apartment was very nice for the price. The hotel, Sol y Mar, is older and needs some attention. The view to the ocean from the balcony is obstructed by palm trees. When we arrived there was only 1 of 2 chairs for the balcony and the beach umbrella was broken. However, the owner's daughter was very responsive and brought the items to the unit right away. We had to buy toilet paper and paper towels. We used the 1 plastic trash bag provided and improvised thereafter. We didn't bother to ask for these items as it wasn't worth the effort. The owner should have provided them. Perhaps she's not used to longer stays--we were there for 10 days. The beds were comfortable. There was plenty of room for both of us. The on-site restaurant was extremely overpriced. We were going to have breakfast there, but the charge was $19/person, so we went elsewhere. We never returned for lunch or diner. However, we had a couple of drinks and a snack at the beach bar. The prices were out of line and the food was horrid. We didn't avail ourselves of the pools because the beach was very nice. But, you can't get one of the beach stations with or without lounge chairs unless you get to the beach at 7 a.m. or so. All in all, it was a fair value. However, we're very unlikely to return to this unit.
I visited this apartment last year in may, good views from the patio and everything. The drinks at the bar are amazing the "Chelado" being my favorite, the pool was very clean and refreshing with a nice view to the beach. The sand at the beach was nice and it was also clean. The apartment comes with two beds and a little fridge, nice bathroom and good tv. But what I liked more was the service, Tamara and her husband called everyday to make sure everything was going good. The security and staff where also nice. I also liked the transportation to and from the bars, clubs and restaurants. Little busses that just you take so you won't have to drive. There's also lots of convenience stores around the condos so you won't have to go far.
The only thing I didn't like was the food in the restaurant area, it can use some improvement. Other than that my experience was great :)
