We had a wonderful 5 nights at Foto’s’s condo April 25th to 30th. The condo was well equipped, bed was very comfortable and the view from the balcony was beautiful. The complex grounds were beautiful and very well kept, pools warm and swim up bartender Robin spoke perfect English and was a fun guy. The location couldn’t be beat as downtown Playa was 5 minutes walk away. Already thinking about when to return. Met John and his assistant Sol and were made to feel very welcome, and any questions were dealt with very quickly. Hasty la vista, baby.
The condo was great for my husband and I this April, 2018! We would stay again for sure. Location can't be beat, gated community made us feel very safe and 5th Avenue felt safe as well. Plenty of great restaurants and stores within a short walk and the owner's hospitality couldn't have been better. Awesome all around!
Thank you very much for staying with us! We are so happy you enjoyed your time here. We look forward to having you again as guests! Thanks again :)
The condominium property was beautiful. However, the pool bar/food area closed for the season.
We arrived early as the owner was aware yet there was no body there to meet us and let us in our room and no code had been given to us. The security officer advised it was a national holiday and nobody working. We called our contact person who gave us the code to our room. We checked the room, it let out a very musty odour when we opened the door. We looked around inside, it appeared dark, not well cleaned and the air conditioning did not work. After a further call to our contact we advised we could not stay. She really wanted us to stay and offered another room. That room was nicer, appeared cleaner and had a/c. It was 8am when we saw this unit therefore it was very quiet, we agreed to stay. Unfortunately! as the days went on we were exposed to constant extremely loud construction noise, hammering, drilling everything that vibrated straight up to our unit. We had to leave everyday (except Sunday) to escape the mayhem. Not what we call a relaxing holiday. We called our contact a few times as things needed fixing, also a plastic chair on the balcony had only three legs. Another chair gave way when I sat in it causing me to fall backwards a get a concussion. We were really looking forward to a relaxing holiday. Unfortunately, with our room not working out, the second room being in a construction zone and the pool bar eating area closing the day after we arrived. This certainly wasn't the holiday we had hoped for.
I do believe there should be some compensation for our misfortunes. I do not understand how someone can rent a condominium to quests knowing the condition of these units and the construction going on in the unit below. Really, would they have enjoyed going through this? Would this be their relaxing holiday?
We are really sorry for your experience during your stay. Between the holiday and a confusion with the cleaning staff, it seemed to be that everything that could go wrong happened. We tried our best to address the inconveniences as they presented themselves. Unfortunately we were not informed either about the construction going on. The compensation was staying in the nicer and bigger condo than the one your originally booked....we apologize for the construction but this was totally out of control. We will make sure they let us know in advance so this won't affect our guests in the future.
Thanks a lot for your observations about the condo! The maintenance issues have been already addressed.
Perfect place for couples
Hi! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and realized after being there for a week that we could come back to the same place time and time again and not even be thinking what could be better? The AC in both rooms was amazing and if you are debating having AC, it is an absolute must in July. The place is two blocks from the main 5th avenue street with shopping, food, etc. however, we prefered the authentic restaurants a bit off the beaten path. We ended up renting bikes on day two and found it super easy to get around with bikes! The condo is literally steps from the pool and beach is a few more steps. Couldn't have found a better place. There's also a washer and dryer which we didn't know until we got there. Could have packed much less had we known. Also, the bathroom shower was leaking a little bit but still worked great. The owner was very conversational and easy to get in touch with. All in all, very great place to stay. We will be back!!
Thank you very much for your review and for staying with us. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you again in a future as a guest!
Great accommodations, great view, pool and beach. Pool bar relaxing and fun, Robin was amusing n fun
Everything was excellent
It makes us very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope we can have you again as a guest in a future! Thanks for the review.
We stayed here over Christmas and the owner and staff were very accommodating. Met us with a small bag of snacks and told us not to hesitate letting him know if anything could be done to make our trip more enjoyable. The sunset view is remarkable. 5th is but a very short walk, so the ADO could be taken to Playa and then taxi to the condo. Once there, you'll wonder why you didn't just walk. Wifi is available in lobby and around the swim-up bar. That includes the beach. Drinks can be purchased there along with some food. Cans only around the pool, no bottles. Plenty of loungers to be used. Met Foto's staff and they are very accommodating as well. They can recommend excursions and often for less. Try the skydiving. You'll land on the beach of the condo's. Overall a very relaxing and enjoyable time. Plan to return soon. Foto is in the know, so you can't go wrong booking with him. By the way, his word is his bond.
