Great family friendly condo with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

Awesome! Couldn't be happier with our stay. Great location, everything (I mean everything you can think of) that you need, clean, and comfortable. EXTRA FANS IN EVERY ROOM! For a family like ours that sleeps with air circulating at all times, this was great. Plenty of beach toys for the kids, so we didn't have to take up space in our car packing our own. Very relaxing and great view. Thank you! We will be back.

Great location, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Mar Azul. The condo was the perfect setup for two couples and one child who was able to sleep in a pack and play in the ensuite bathroom.

The kitchen was equipped as described and the living and dining areas were very comfortable.

The pools at the complex were well-maintained, as was the boardwalk to the beach. There was even a small playground for our son to use, though the mosquitos were brutal when we were there.(bring bug spray!)

We would definitely come back again!

My friend and I stayed here with our daughters and had a blast! The condo was absolutely perfect and the property is amazing!! Loved our short walk to the beach and as well as the clean crisp pool that was available if we got tired of all the sand. Really it was just the best weekend. We mainly swam and just hung out on the balcony the majority of our time and played games. We also found an amazing place to get pizza which was super close to the condo. It's called Slice of Chicago. I definitely recommend trying their deep dish...yum! Also...Chris was the perfect host and was available if we needed anything or had any questions. We will definitely be going back!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very well maintained, great location and the A/C was excellent. Smooth transaction with no problems at all. The convenience to the beach is excellent, we walked to and from the beach several times each day. The balcony gives a nice view of the surf and overlooks the condo pool and picnic area. We enjoyed watching the people and they were never louder than the crash of the waves. I would recommend this unit.
