"We stayed at the Caribbean Reef Villa for two weeks. I would say it is close to perfect. The pool is amazing. The property is right on the beach. Nice and quiet. Only about 20 units. The staff do well maintaining the grounds. Our room was cleaned three times during our stay. Our one bedroom unit was larger than I thought it was going to be and the layout (murphy bed in the living room, two full bathrooms) would allow for having guests stay with you The only downside is the location. It is a bit less than a mile south of town but you cannot walk the beach into town. you either walk the road or walk by the perimeter of the shipping yard. We typically walked into town but took a taxi back (50 pesos). A location North of town would be better but the property itself is great."

"My wife and I have been vacationing in Playa at least once a year for eight years now. We started with AIs, moved on to boutique hotels and had been very happy at Playa Maya (down the beach from El Faro) for four years now. They are, however being renovated so we couldn't get in there this year - what a blessing in disguise. We found a few condos here on VRBO and all three of the couples in the group ranked Lorelie's as our #1 choice. After a couple helpful emails we booked it and couldn't wait for our trip. After a quick tour of the condo by the mgmt company we were officially on vacation! The condo was cleaned daily, linens changed once during the week, kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need. The condo itself is spacious, well decorated and beautiful. We spent a lot of time at night on the patio listening to the ocean and unfortunately the rain. It did rain every day we were there thanks to a slow moving tropical depression which would have made the trip much worse had we not been in the condo. I was off diving every day so the rain didn't bother me as much but for the non divers it was great to have the big living room area and patio to hang out between showers. The pool and beach were great, as were the massages next to the pool! Wickie's is unfortunately gone but with all the great places to eat near there, Zenzi right across 10th and the coolers in the room we never were wanting for pool/beach refreshment. (Take advantage of the 10% Zenzi discount cards from the front desk). We couldn't have asked for anything more and look forward to this being the new spot we stay on our annual trips!"

"I rented this house for a quiet get-away with my 80-something mother, my brother and I - who all live in different locations in the US. We had an absolutely magnificent time. The house, beach and town are fabulous. The booking process was very easy, and we were greeted with wonderful hospitality. I cant say enough good things, we would definitely return."

3rd Time's A Charm!! So Were The Other 2, By The Way!!
"Just spent a relaxing week at the Sandcastle condo, my 3rd stay there over the years. I keep returning because the place just cannot be beat. The Elements are very well maintained & constantly being upgraded. They added a second outdoor jacuzzi since my last stay. The location is perfect for my taste. Close to downtown PDC (a short walk or a 5 minute taxi ride), but far enough away to be quiet & tranquil. The unit itself has to die for views & is clean & well appointed. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves...very relaxing!! We had massages at the private beach club, took hikes & swam in the pool & ocean. I enjoy staying at condos because there is plenty of room & you have your own kitchen. I highly recommend The Sandcastle!!"
