Pros: Beautiful view of the entirety of Isla Verde. Probably the closest balcony to the beach, with room for 4 to eat breakfast overlooking the beach. Very clean, satisfying my picky wife! Everything we needed, including blender, hair dryer, high-quality paper goods, linens, dishes, etc. Comfortable beds, even the pull-out. We had plenty of hot water for four showers in a row! Mark was very welcoming and prompt. The building and parking felt very secure. The resort next door had providers of beach chairs and water sport activities on the beach, so we went parasailing one day. Cons: Lots of seaweed on the beach and in the water at this end, but we just walked down a few hundred feet to find a cleaner spot. No substantial curtains to darken the living room, but the kids slept fine in the morning with the sunlight and wave sounds coming in. Driving directions were a bit hard to follow with a bunch of one-way streets to get to the building. Prepare your route better than I did and don't miss the turn onto Rte 26!. No outlet in the bathroom, so hair drying had to be done elsewhere. The nearby resort beach bar was closed during the week, but Walgreens 3 blocks away sells liquor (and just about everything else). Overall, a fantastic stay which I would highly recommend.
