"We, a couple in our 40s, stayed at this Veneto Condo unit for a week in February, 2015.
Upon arrival, there were a couple of very minor glitches re: cleanliness, but Nick, the property manager, was very quick to sort those out for us.
This unit is just as described. The views from the living space are amazing - sweeping views of the ocean, sky, landscape and town. The condo unit was more than the two of us needed - two well-appointed bedrooms, 2 bathrooms each with shower, kitchen (no oven, but we weren't there to bake :)), and comfortable, spacious living space. There was even in-unit washer and dryer, although we didn't need to use them.
The air conditioning cooled the place down nicely. The back entrance was a nice spot to watch monkeys in the morning. The pool area was even nicer than the photos let on. There were plenty of lounge chairs, and the ocean views magnificent. The pool was kept clean, and the friendly caretakers were available to start the waterfall upon request.
The condo is within easy walking distance to town and the beach, but we usually took a cab home in the dark (~$2 US) as the roads back up were a bit tricky to navigate.
The only things we could possibly have wished for were a slightly softer mattress, and a balcony to enjoy in the evenings, to watch the sunset.
The owners were very helpful over the phone and via email, and payments and reimbursements went smoothly. Did I mention what a star Nick, the manager was? (there you go, Nick!) No, really, he was readily available to answer any questions and helped us out immeasurably during our stay.
Overall, we would highly recommend this unit as a comfortable, convenient place to stay in the Sámara area."
