Alamar is the place to stay in La Cruz!

A beautiful property, kept spotlessly clean. The most gorgeous flowers and palm trees and staff (guards, maids, etc.) are wonderful and helpful! And the condo we stayed in was fully equipped- we felt like we were in a friend's house- everything you need to feel at home!

Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Susan and John. My husband and I enjoyed every moment of our stay. The condo was perfectly appointed with everything we needed. The view was amazing and we could not have imagined it any better. Staying here was so comfortable, we felt instantly at home. The infinity pool at the condo was spectacular and the ability to hop on the shuttle to head down to the Beach club was a nice alternative if we wanted a change. The property management team of Nancy and Sally looked after us completely. We greatly appreciated that Nancy met us at the airport and although it was late, she made a stop at the MEGA and accompanied us through the store to pick up the essentials to get us through for a few days before our big grocery shop. The staff at Alamar was great and we always felt safe on the property and off. Although we were trying to use Spanish as much as we could to talk with the staff, most spoke English very well and we never ran into any problems. We loved La Cruz with all of the live entertainment and great food. The fish market daily and the Sunday market at the Marina were awesome. I could go on forever about how much we enjoyed the place and that we wish we were still there but overall I would sum it up with the following: The most relaxing, enjoyable, vacation in Mexico anyone could image. Thank you, Dean and Shona Powers, British Columbia CANADA

Impressive! Amazing! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I decided to book a trip in 2 weeks for a family trip before our daughter goes off to college so, we stayed in this lovely condo for a week with our two daughters, 18 & 15 years old. The minute we entered the Alamar grounds you could tell how much pride & care the staff take in maintaining this property. The pools & the restroom facilities were immaculate. The elevators were mopped out & wiped down every morning, the walkways on each floor were mopped every morning & even the parking garage was swept out! The Alamar staff were always very friendly.

The main reason we pick this condo was because of the owner Susan. She was quick to respond back to me regarding any & all questions I had before booking, even on a holiday weekend. Once I booked the condo I was immediately contacted by the property manager Sally who was great in arranging airport pick up & drop off. We were picked up by a wonderful lady, Nancy, who then took us to the Mega for some shopping. Once we arrived at the condo and walked in the door, I knew we had chosen the right condo. It was amazing! The views from the balcony were beautiful. The condo was super clean & well stocked from everything you need in the kitchen, to bath towels, beach towels, to laundry soap. The beds were comfortable & it was nice to run the A/C a little at night to keep the humidity down a bit. This condo is VERY WELL MAINTAINED! There is construction going on right beside the condo, a new road is going in. The only reason I'm mentioning this is because at first I was concerned there would be a lot of noise. But, it was not an issue at all. The condo is so well built that you did not hear it in the mornings if you wanted to sleep in a bit. And by the time we wanted to sit on the balcony, they had quit working for the day.

We are adventurous so, we rented a car. This was the best thing we did! We rented from the guys at Gecko & it was easy & very reasonable. Rent a car! We went north and got to explore, swim, boogie board all the wonderful beaches a taxi won't/can't take you to. My family enjoyed Susan's condo and I'm positive yours will too!

Spectacular View, Gorgeous Interior

  • 4 of 5

We've recently come home from a lovely trip to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. We'd stayed in town before but wanted a change of scenery and this property delivered!! We awoke every morning to beautiful sunrises and happened to be there during a full moon, so were also treated to "moonrises" as well! The condo was modern, clean, and we found the security folks to be very helpful in helping us get taxi service to get us to and from town. The pool was well maintained and refreshing - very close to the condo. The restaurant and beach were a bit further away than we expected, just a very short taxi ride away. We wouldn't exactly call it "walking distance" unless you're in very good physical condition and don't mind a strenuous hike back up the hill when you're done!! All of our interactions with the owners were via email, and answered promptly. Susan was very helpful in making sure that we'd have all that we needed when staying in their lovely home!! We've always enjoyed stopping in at Philo's Bar & Restaurant for the live music & ribs!! We discovered Frascati's during this visit and came back 2 more times before we had to go back home to the States!! Thanks again, Susan, for making our stay special! Jorge, the property manager, was particularly helpful as well!!

This condo is a very nice vacation rental. John and Su have done a fantastic job decorating this beautiful 2 bedroom condo. View over looking bay from balcony and master bedroom is FANTASTIC. Condo and adjacent beach club were very relaxing. Town of La Cruz offers many fine resturants and fun bars. Thanks John and Su for a great vacation.
