About Ted & Patsy
We are long-term Phoenix residents who never visited Rocky Point until 2007. We loved it so much, we made an offer on our first condo that same weekend! By 2010 we wound up with 5 condos all in Cristal building of Las Palomas, including three 3BD units along with 1 each 2BD and 1BD floorplans. Cristal building is the best location at Las Palomas (beachfront location, upgraded interiors, centrally located within resort, afternoon balcony shade, Old Port views) which explains why all 5 of our condos are located in that building--it's the best!
Ted & Patsy purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Ted & Patsy chose Rocky Point
For Arizona, New Mexico, and SoCal residents, Rocky Point is very accessible--less than 4 hours driving time from Phoenix or Tucson. Close enough to come to the beach just for a weekend, and without the cost and hassle of air travel. And you can bring as much of your stuff as you can pack in your SUV! As for Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort, this is the premiere resort complex in all of Rocky Point. The Sandy Beach location is amazing, and the resort is truly 5-star from the quality of the condo interiors to the resort amenities available.
What makes this Condo unique
Las Palomas is the best beach property in Rocky Point--the only resort that offers full suite of hotel services, is located on the best section of Sandy Beach, and is the only property on Sandy Beach which has its own championship 18 hole golf course. It's a far superior experience compared to the other Rocky Point properties, where you are just renting a condo. As for our 5 condos, we have furnished and equipped them to be far above the minimum requirements set by the resort hotel management team--you will never be disappointed with our condos, we continually upgrade furniture, mattresses, electronics, kitchen suppliers, etc. so that our condos stand above the rest.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful condo and such a great place for families and adult get always. Definitely going back!!
Best two bedroom condo on the property
This lovely, spacious, two bedroom condo provides all the comforts of home. Flat screen TVs, satellite programming, WiFi, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, what more can you ask for. Daily maid service is included. Just make sure they don’t take the pillows and sheets when they make up the pull out couch. This happened a couple of times but a call down to the lobby quickly fixed the issue. Beds/linens were very high quality and comfortable. Restaurants on site, primarily two are very good, but I suggest you venture to town to try the local venues. Perfectly safe on the grounds and off. Just follow the laws and you’ll be fine. Locals are extremely friendly and appreciative of your business. Didn’t drink the water, brought our own bottled water, but the owners say it’s safe to drink. Garbage bags, paper towels, dish soap were provided. You may need to bring your own laundry detergent but there was some in the cabinet. This unit oversees the pool and has a great ocean view, while not being too high. Elevators were sometimes slow and crowded, so we took the 4 flights of stairs for exercise. Haven’t checked out yet, but don’t expect it to be a problem. The condo management staff was very helpful during the stay. Last notes since others had some previous comments. I had two teenage boys sleeping on the pullout. Though the mattress was thin, it wasn’t uncomfortable. They are both over 6 feet and weigh about 150lbs. The AC worked perfectly. Thanks Ted and Patsy!!! We’d love to rent this unit again.

Very nice, loved our stay!
Thanks, We had a great time.
We love Las Palomas, but the unit needed some work
We had a fantastic time as always at Puerto Penasco but we woke up 2 nights without Ac and the dishwasher flooded the condo the only time we used it. The front office was helpful in getting repairs done. The only other issue we had was the owner of the unit being able to control the AC systems remotely. We live in Vegas and set our ac at 80 durning the day and 68 at night and he had the living room locked out at 73 and the bedroom at 71 not cool enough for us at night plus just the ideal that big brother was controlling something almost made me want to check for cameras lol
There was some miscommunication from the resort staff regarding the wifi AC thermostats...not only is the guest able to adjust them during their stay, but in addition the condo owner is forbidden to make any Internet adjustments while the guest is checked in to the condo. I think the issue was that I have the Cristal 404 thermostats programmed with cooling limits of 71F, which is quite cool and I have never fielded a complaint before that 71F was not cool enough (most guests set to 72-74F range, 71F is too cold for most). This is common practice for any hotel, to set max heating and cooling setpoint limits. Second issue was the dishwasher, that was repaired shortly after the guest's departure.
Awesome Unit in Las Palomas
Great views of the water and town as well as overlooking the pool. I would stay here again. Highly recommend.
Everything was great, beds were really comfortable and the condo was beautiful only one thing is we needed trash bags and couldn’t get any so don’t forget to pack your own.
There is something for everyone at Las Palomas. The kids will flock to the many pools, lazy rivers, waterslide, and of course to the beach to swim or to take a banana boat ride. For the adults, there are ATV or jet-ski rentals, or for the more adventurous try renting a sailboat, going parasailing, or taking an ultralight flight over Sandy Beach. Bring your frisbee, football, horseshoe, beanbag toss, and bocce set. Don't forget to take a pitcher of margaritas down the beach with you, since all those activities are sure to make you thirsty. Just want to relax and decompress? Read your book under one of the many beach palapas, or use one of the comfy chaise lounge chairs right on your balcony. When you are hungry from a long day of beach activities, you can either head to Old Port or to one of the Las Palomas restaurants for food and drinks or just unwind right in your condo. Buying fresh-off-the-boat fish and shrimp in Old Port and then cooking up a feast at your condo is another great option. We have high-def satellite TV service including 40 channels of US content including all major Arizona network channels and premium movie channels, and a 60" Smart LED TV in the living room to enjoy it on. If you are a Diamondbacks or Cardinals fan, no need to miss the game—you can watch it from the beach! Netflix works also (sign in to access your own account). Each of our condos has a dedicated 30 Mbps fiber optic internet service with wifi, so getting online is easy and fast (and complimentary). There is LOTS to do at Las Palomas. Just bring a cooler of food and drinks, your bathing suit, and a toothbrush!
