"The condo itself was beautiful and spacious yet comfortable for a family of 6 (4 teenage boys) - perfect. Loved sunrise and sunset on the deck surrounded by the sounds of birds and monkeys as we looked over the golf course to the ocean and Catalina Rock. Short walk to the pool/beach (or you can take a short shuttle). The condo pool/Beach Club is stunning and there are 2 well equipped workout facilities on premise, complimentary kayak and paddle boards, as well as a few bikes for use. We did not rent a car and taxis that accommodate 6 are relatively expensive, so we ate at Westin Resort restaurants a few times (very good), cooked in (we had concierge deliver a few groceries to wait for us upon arrival, and then went to a supermarket early in the week for the bigger shop) and then offsite for a few dinners (condo has some recommended dining options in a folder) The homeowners were a pleasure to work with and even had a local friend meet us upon arrival with great advice. The concierge for the condos receives mixed reviews - they were friendly, but we did not always receive consistent information from them, the phone went unanswered a few times, and we had transportation issues a couple of times. We used one of the groups on the beach to arrange our excursions rather than the concierge: volcano/canopy tour, catamaran/snorkeling, ATV on beach, horseback on beach, jet skis and surfing in Tamarindo. This condo was the perfect home base to be able to enjoy all these wonderful activities in Costa Rica. We loved our week, and I highly recommend this particular condo for your stay."
