"We spent a week at Quinta Dana Maria and Clara's Studio. It was a perfect setting for two couples. We enjoyed all of the four different common spaces and each was perfect for a particular purpose especially the rooftop deck in the early morning and evening. Judy and Joe are terrific hosts and the place is thoughtfully decorated and stocked with everything you might want or need. The addition of canine and feline hosts was also a bonus to us. Every room has at least one fan and with both the studio and apartment, the cross ventilation was very good although those who require air conditioning might struggle a little with the heat late season. The pool and garden are beautiful. We enjoyed the more authentic experience of La Cruz. Everyone was super friendly and the fish was as fresh as it can get. We enjoyed Marsala as well as Tacos on the Street and the restaurants near the marina. We also enjoyed cooking fresh fish from the market in our very well stocked kitchen. All in all, it was a perfect place to unwind, soak up some heat and feel a part of a hardworking community. This is not the place for those seeking an all-inclusive, resort environment but is a great base for exploring the region and gaining an appreciation for life in a small community."

"For the price this condo can't be beat. We stayed for 19 days and it was great! Fully furnished with everything you would need. Comfortable, clean and very quiet. The pool area was large and always had space to lay out and catch some sun. The balcony was huge and very nice in the evening to sit out and have dinner (bring your bug spray). The location was great. You could walk to town in 5 minutes and enjoy the restaurants and pick up some basic food supplies. For major grocery shopping The "Mega" is an $15.00 cab ride or bus there for $1.00 then take a cab ride home with your all your groceries! We stocked up once and it was enough. There are full 20 liter water bottles at the condo that the security will bring up to the condo for $3.00! P.S Tip him to be nice :) It was also very secure with 24 hour friendly guards to help you sleep safe at night. The ocean and beach was a block away and goes for miles. You have a partial ocean view from the unit as well look over green space and the pool. The internet was "Mexico" (slower during peak times) but they also had a back up for emergencies. There is also another option of a 24 hour business center right below the unit you can use with internet as well. You could browse Facebook, watch videos and answer emails as needed. The property manager Oscar is fantastic and gets you situated nicely. If there is any emergency you can contact them and they will fix it right away. For peace of mind to have someone there like Oscar who lives in La Cruz is priceless. If anything goes wrong or if you have concerns he will help very quick. Its like having your own concierge and makes you feel safe. He can help with great dining tips as well. Overall we would return and enjoyed the condo. From start to finish from booking to checking out everything ran very smooth. Thank you!!"

"Aside from the condo's clean and modern facilities we liked the real Mexican atmosphere in La Cruz. We found the local inhabitants and the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The unit has Wi-Fi so we were able to communicate with family and friends also visiting La Cruz. The local market provided us with inexpensive fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood and the usual souvenirs and other tourist items. The weather was very pleasant day and night and our jeans and jackets never left the closet for the entire stay of 5 weeks. The unit has 3 air conditioners which were never used because of the soft breeze that blew through the condo when the front and rear doors and windows were left partly or fully opened. We didn't need a car at the bus service to other areas was excellent and any taxi rides very inexpensive. The airport was only 20-25 minutes away. The condo has Shaw TV so were able to watch the news back home in Canada. A definite 4 1/2 star rating."

"My husband & I decided to book a trip in 2 weeks for a family trip before our daughter goes off to college so, we stayed in this lovely condo for a week with our two daughters, 18 & 15 years old. The minute we entered the Alamar grounds you could tell how much pride & care the staff take in maintaining this property. The pools & the restroom facilities were immaculate. The elevators were mopped out & wiped down every morning, the walkways on each floor were mopped every morning & even the parking garage was swept out! The Alamar staff were always very friendly.
The main reason we pick this condo was because of the owner Susan. She was quick to respond back to me regarding any & all questions I had before booking, even on a holiday weekend. Once I booked the condo I was immediately contacted by the property manager Sally who was great in arranging airport pick up & drop off. We were picked up by a wonderful lady, Nancy, who then took us to the Mega for some shopping. Once we arrived at the condo and walked in the door, I knew we had chosen the right condo. It was amazing! The views from the balcony were beautiful. The condo was super clean & well stocked from everything you need in the kitchen, to bath towels, beach towels, to laundry soap. The beds were comfortable & it was nice to run the A/C a little at night to keep the humidity down a bit. This condo is VERY WELL MAINTAINED! There is construction going on right beside the condo, a new road is going in. The only reason I'm mentioning this is because at first I was concerned there would be a lot of noise. But, it was not an issue at all. The condo is so well built that you did not hear it in the mornings if you wanted to sleep in a bit. And by the time we wanted to sit on the balcony, they had quit working for the day.
We are adventurous so, we rented a car. This was the best thing we did! We rented from the guys at Gecko & it was easy & very reasonable. Rent a car! We went north and got to explore, swim, boogie board all the wonderful beaches a taxi won't/can't take you to. My family enjoyed Susan's condo and I'm positive yours will too!"
