"We rented this condo a year in advance from Chris who resides in the US, so very easy to arrange details. Chris gave us an amazing deal for 6 weeks for $5500, electricity included. The property sold and Romaine honored the existing rental. He hired a new off site manager, Magda, who responded quickly to several issues like leaky toilet and plugged sink, as well as helping us figure out the stove. I suggested she might want to put together a manual with additional info, like being able to access the beach from the street just north of the condo. We had a wonderful 6 weeks. The curtains they just installed really helped keep the condo cool in the heat of the day and they even installed an additional one over the west slider door which we had covered with a sheet in the afternoon. The condo is large and nicely appointed. The kitchen could have a few more lids and accessories, but we got by just fine. And it was nice to see they put in a new patio table after we left. Could use new loungers on the rooftop, as one was broken, and maybe another table and chairs. We slept with the windows open and there is a surprising amount of traffic noise from the main street, which you wouldn't notice if you have the windows closed. And the master bedroom windows should really be fixed so that you can close them all the way without having to remove the screen and reach around to push/pull them closed the last few inches (which is a necessity if it is raining). Access to the reef club right across the street is wonderful. We were usually there by945 to make sure we got in. I think it might not be so difficult to get in since they don't allow coolers or for you to bring your own beverages, and the only way to eat/drink on site is to buy the daily pass for about $50. US per person which allows 9 to 5 eating and drinking. The condo staff were very friendly and responsive to all our needs, and the security is excellent. Great pool and tennis court, grounds are beautiful. Our family and guests were impressed with the wow factor of the condo, grounds, accommodations and location. We felt like we were living a "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous". It was certainly the most luxurious place we have stayed at."
