Truly stunning views and wonderful area
Our stay was 2 weeks from Jan. 28th until Feb 11th. It was a family vacation with six
adults the first week and only four of us for the second. We had abundant room within
the condo and it was as advertised. My wife and I were the veterans as it was our 3rd trip to the area. Beach was wonderful, shopping close by, excellent restaurants (many)
that were all within a 10 min drive. Corner restaurant in the City Center was a 2 min walk with a good menu and value. Also a convenience store next to it. Other than the two weekends the 22 units in the tower we stayed in was maybe 20% occupied. Went up to El Vallee, into Penomene and to Coronado - all within a 40 min drive. Sunrise and sunset scenes from the balcony never get old. Flying into Scarlett - Martinez airport (10 min away) is also a great advantage. Overall it was a great two weeks!

We enjoyed the destination of Playa Blanca. Nice beach, but this condo is not well-maintained.
Unfortunately, this property has not been properly maintained. The stove, refrigerator, counter top and back-splash around the kitchen sink and stove should be scrubbed, cleaned and polished. Several cabinet doors throughout the condo need to be adjusted because they don’t close properly. The mattresses on the beds were not comfortable and could be upgraded. The bedding and linens were old and should be replaced. The hot water system didn’t seem to work properly — it was dangerously hot and then it became cold — it was difficult to regulate the water temperature for a comfortable shower. The pots and pans, cutlery and kitchen gadgets were in sad shape. Overall, this condo needs a lot of TLC. In fairness the complex, Los Balcones, is a nice place. The grounds are well-maintained and there security in place 24/7. Playa Blanca was very nice, but this unit was disappointing.
If I had to qualify this traveler's stay at our property I would say he was the guest from Hell! The apartment had been fully cleaned a few days before and was due to be revised a day before his arrival. However he arrived a day early. It had been very stormy and windy and anybody knowing Playa Blanca would know that dust penetrates everywhere within a few hours. He started complaining immediately, there was nothing that could please him and he summoned our managers who came immediately and tried to go through every single one of the complaints he was uttering. They responded to all his dalliances although quite a few were not justified. We even called some of our friends in Playa Blanca to see what had gone so horribly wrong, although there were some issues that had been put right immediately they felt quite a few complaints were totally unjustified.
We have guests who have been coming year after year! And the week before someone booked for 4 months next year after having viewed the apartment. Denis drove our managers insane almost every day! They tried to satisfy him. He even admitted that they did all the right things, but that did not stop him pouring his venom.
Lovely view from the balcony
This is a lovely clean condo with plenty of space and all amenities.
It might need a little bit of TLC, but over whole it’s clean and functional. As we were visiting during the rainy (humid) season – it would have been nice to have A/C in the living room. This was not a huge issue for us as we have spent most of the time on the balcony.
We enjoyed very much preparing dinner from the nearby fish market in our full-size kitchen. Proximity of the Super99 supermarket was great as well.
Having washer and dryer was very beneficial as we were not used to the humidity.
All bedrooms have A/Cs and blackout blinds. Very comfortable and restful nights.
Outdoor pool is clean and grounds are very well maintained. There is an ocean view from the balcony and the beach is a short walk away. It’s a nice sandy beach. Would recommend early morning walk on the beach.
We would rent this unit again in the future.
