Excellent vacation condo & location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are close to 80 years of age and really appreciated the well appointed condo. The views couldn't be better and the condo was furnished with quality appliances, furniture, towels and sheets. We did not have to rush out and buy anything. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Awesome Two Balcony Condo, with beautiful Views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the SeaRiver Condos, at Sunscape Resort. I have stayed at this resort many times. This is the nicest condo by far. Lovely furnishings. Two balconies with astonishing views. One day we watched a mother whale and her calf playing in the bay, not far off shore. She kept slapping the water with her tail for about 20 minutes. Heidi ( the owner) was such a pleasant and helpful person, and so quick to answer any questions we had. Sandra, from housekeeping was so attentive. From the moment we arrived, we felt well taken care of, no disappointments. It is so wonderful and obvious that Heidi wants the best experience for her guests. And that is remarkable and appreciated. We plan to come back soon. Thank you for this very special time I got to spend with my mom.

"Another great stay in PV"

  • 5 of 5

I travel to PV at least once a year. This time we decided to stay in a private condo vs a mega resort. We loved this place ! Million dollar view and private. Just a few steps to the beach. The location is more than perfect and it has easy access to public transportation. Taxis are waiting at the entrance or there is parking available if you are renting a car. This is an old building, but this condo has been fully renovated, it is contemporary and comfortable. Kitchen is small, but well equipped to be able to prepare a good meal with fresh shrimp from the city market and a frozen margarita, which we did only one day, since there are many restaurants offering an outstanding gastronomic experience. Staff was very efficient and always happy to help.

Heidi, Thank you for renting your amazing apartment. The pictures do not do justice by far. Your place is amazing. Service wonderful. Cannot ask for a better vacation. Thank you and cannot wait to go back.

Not worth what we paid for

  • 2 of 5

Booked thinking that it was going to be a great place and it really is a tired old hotel. Old elevators take you to the 17th floor are old have cracked lighting, no air movement and make a terrible humming as you are going up. The humming you hear in the room is the service elevators also that are just outside the room and to the left. Walking from the elevators to the room you have swallows coming and going as they are nesting above the door ways of the rooms. Looking at the condition of the hotel is is bad also with bird dropping and the stucco falling off the outside walls, the alarm hanging by two wires and stained floors.

Coming in to the room is nice. However there is no water cooler there, I have never rented a place in Mexico that didn't have a water cooler. The counter space is nice if you are fixing a drink other then that it's hard to make a meal, the two burner counter top stove is so small that you can't cook to things at once unless you are using very small pots. One was cloth and a drying towel is somewhat of a mystery to us as everywhere we have stayed has had more. Everything is in the kitchen to make a meal and it it with and on.

The bed sheets were something that we couldn't under stand as they didn't fit the bed and in the middle of the night you would have to get up and pull the sheets down. I know the owner says something about the sheets but we have had better ones that fit at other places. No mat to wipe your feet seemed to be missing, with sand and what not around the resort it would have made sense to have had one at the side of the bed so you were not dragging it in the bed. Bed was comfortable no complaints there.

The air conditioning was on but didn't really throw that much coolness to the room, thankfully they had a fan there otherwise it would have been hell to sleep at night. We went to watch TV one night to see what movies are on but there was only one English channel so we just turned it off and never turned it on. WIFI did work fine.

The bathroom area was nice but again for some reason we got 4 towels for showering, once more the other places we have stayed have given the renters tons of towels. No mat in the shower also, can't figure out why there would not be one, I have never stayed at a place that didn't have one. We talked to the manager and got one when they cleaned and then the next time they cleaned they took away again.

The view is a great one but hearing what others were paying not worth the money.

Owner's Response: Gosh Rob & Wendy, your review really surprises us. We had established such a wonderful rapport prior to your vacation and we didn’t hear a peep from you during your trip. We had hoped you’d feel comfortable contacting us if any issues came up. With the Resort being halfway through a remodel, we have been nervous that there might be problems with the Resort, but your issues with our condo caught us by surprise. Our on-site management company is always standing by 24/7 to help. If Guests need more towels or amenities, they will deliver pronto. Our web site has dozens of photos, a video, and a floor plan to show our Guests precisely what to expect during their visit. While our kitchenette is small we have enjoyed many meals created there by our private chef. He selected the stainless cookware and fittings himself. Our condo enjoys double filtered water making a water cooler rather redundant. Our goal is for our guests to have the best vacation of their lives. It pains us to find out too late that expectations were not met. If a bathmat, 20 towels, and two more feet of counter-top would have made life glorious, we would have moved heaven and earth to make that happen. As it is our second home, perhaps we assume others live as we do, and we need to reassess with fresh eyes. The Resort property has changed Branding and completed Phase I of the remodel. Phase II of the remodel will be completed this summer (2016) and will specifically address the shortcomings in the condo building you pointed out. Thank you for providing us with your valuable feedback. We will be back there in a few weeks and will go over your critique point by point.

Comfortable beds!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo because another condo we rented was booked twice. We were lucky that the dates worked out perfectly. This condo is everything that it says. Very comfortable beds and the views from both balconies are awesome! The shower was also nice as had hot water and a nice showerhead. Binoculars in the room also was a nice touch. The only complaint that I have is that it needs a thorough cleaning. The rug was full of lint in the living area and needs a desperate vaccuming. The kitchen cupboards need a very thorough wipe down and the tile floor needed to wiped up and not just swept. Otherwise the bathroom was clean and again the beds very comfortable. I would recommend renting from this owner as she was very thorough and helpful in the rental process.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that we were able to help save your vacation after the double booking you experienced at another property. It was very fortuitous that we happen to have the dates open for you. Thank you so much for your feedback about our condo. We have a marvelous new Rental Management Agency and we are fine-tuning our expectations with their maids and staff. I have forwarded your comments on to them and am confident that you will find a whole new level of sparkle & shine on your next visit. I only wish you had let us know your concern at the time so we could make things pristine for you immediately. We pride ourselves on being responsive and meeting our Guest's needs. Thank you again for staying with us, and providing us with actionable feedback.
