Fantastic Location, Responsive Management, Just a few Glitches
"The previous reviews pretty much cover the many good aspects about Casita Blanca condos, unit A5 and its owner. The complex's buildings, grounds, pool and beach areas were all well maintained. We found it an easy walk (about 8 Mexican blocks) down a sandy beach to PM's town square where most restaurants, shops, ATMs, money exchange, etc are located. Also a local grocery store, Super Casa Martin, where you can purchase about all your food and drink needs. The property manager Roberto while kept very busy maintaining the complex; was always friendly and responded to any issues in a timely manner.
The condos are individually owned so the décor, amenities, updates, etc. can vary widely depending upon which unit you rent. I recommend a 3rd floor unit for the best views of the beach during the day and for moonlight shimmering on the ocean at night. The ground floor units view of the shoreline are blocked by a hedge along the property's front and the coconut trees have grown to the height where some 2nd floor balcony views may be partially blocked by their palms. Our 3rd floor condo had spectacular views as shown in the photos. The unit was adequately furnished and housekeeping came thru about every other day or so to clean. Roberto and his crew were swapping out our water heater when we arrived; after a couple tries we had muy caliente agua (alotta hot water). The rest of the appliances and utilities worked fine. The WiFi worked best out on the balcony. The safe in the back smaller bedroom with the double bed works fine if you follow Roberto's instructions. There is no real 'wall' between the bedrooms, just a large sliding wood-paneled door. We're a well-traveled crew, so this was not a privacy issue for us. Both bedrooms only have sheers for curtains. So if you get the king-sized bedroom with east ocean-facing windows; plan on being an early-riser as you awaken to the brilliant morning sunrises illuminating the room. We did not find out until after we arrived that while A5 had a large HD TV, there was no satellite/cable/local TV reception? Which pretty much made our decision to watch the Superbowl at a local cantina vs in our condo. Which while more expensive, was mas fun. Another slight glitch, the knob on our dead bolt broke off? Luckily we'd packed a of pair of needle nose pliers with us so we could grab and slide the bolt open to avoid the quandary of being locked in a 3rd floor condo. We info'd Roberto about it. He said Don't use it. Wise advice."

"I stayed in the condo for one week. Compared to other lodging that I've experienced in Mexico, it was by far the best. There are lots of things to do nearby; enjoyed the ruins at Tulum. The snorkeling, swimming and fishing were all great. The condo was very clean and comfortable. I'm looking forward to staying there again soon."

"this was our 4th stay @ palma real (1st stay in this unit). easily the best views in the entire complex. as a repeat visitor to palma real we knew what to expect & we were not disappointed. the condo unit itself has most everything you need. you will need to purchase condiments for cooking & extra toilet paper but that's about it. Gustavo the pool & maintenance guy continues to keep all areas clean. Carlos the property manager is a wealth of information & very helpful. the owner was very easy to deal with & answered any questions we had. on those days that you need to chill inside, the owner has provided Netflix which was wonderful as we needed a break from the sun & heat.
complaints - no safe in the unit (so you may want to find a hiding place for valuables while you out). the unit advertises a dryer, however the dryer does not product hot air (only cool air) as there is no vent. we experienced the same situation in other units. neither of these complaints will discourage us from revisiting palma real."

"This was my 8th visit to PM, 2nd time at Casita Blanca & 1st time in Palma's condo. We loved it! Great views, fantastic kitchen and baths, the place was clean & well stocked with linens. The couple issues we had were quickly addressed by management with fast, attentive assistance from the owner (it was on a Sunday.) I would definitely recommend this condo & owner's attentiveness & responsiveness! Looking forward to next year! Muchas gracias Palma!"
