Unobstructed ocean views abound from the living room, master bedroom and the infinity pool.
The condo is on the main floor and has a master bedroom and bath, and a guest bedroom and bath. Air-conditioning is throughout the condo with hand-held remote controls. Doors from living room and master bedroom open to a furnished patio with fantastic views of the secluded beach and direct access to the pool.
The unit has its own washer and dryer on the rear porche, and a fully-equipped modern kitchen.
The condo has wifi internet, DVD player and a 32-inch flat screen, also has Kody that plays internet content such as Netflix as well as free video sites.
Two thatched gazebos near the pool are perfect for socializing or barbecuing.
Equatorial temperatures are typically around 29 degrees C, 85 degrees F in the daytime. Evenings are cooler in the 70’s F. The ocean is warm with pleasant breezes.
Nearby towns offer a variety of restaurants with locally-caught fresh seafood, and very affordable prices. There are several farmers’ markets to choose from with a wide range of exotic and familiar offerings.
If swimming or walking on the beach isn’t enough, there is para-gliding, surfing, boogie-boarding, horseback riding, or kayaking for the more adventurous. Playa Dorada condominiums are a gated community of only 6 units with on-site security. Located 4.5 Km south of the surfing town of Canoa, and 11.5 Km north of San Vicente. Look for the 11 Km marker and the Playa Dorada sign on the Coast Highway. Buses run approximately every 30 minutes and fare to either town is 50 cents, and 25 cents for seniors. Inexpensive taxis are also readily available.
Ecuador uses the U.S dollar.
We enjoyed a wonderful 8 week stay at Playa del Sol just south of Canoa.
This was our 3rd winter holiday in Ecuador and by far the best we have experienced.
We found the Playa del Sol complex a great place to spend our winter vacation.
It's located on a fairly busy road 11km North of San Vicente, although somewhat noisy
at times it does provide the opportunity of easy access to local towns, restaurants,
markets and shopping. Local bus and taxi services are readily available and provided
many memorable experiences.
Our condo/unit was on the 2nd floor of the southern building, just perfect for us.
We found the unit very clean, very functional and very well appointed. The unit is very well laid out, certainly no shortage of space, even when we had company join us for a few weeks. The photos on VRBO site doesn't do the unit justice.
We enjoyed many hours on the roomy balcony having meals, viewing the ocean and
experiencing beautiful sunsets.
The Infiniti pool was a big favorite of ours, always clean and inviting, a nice place to enjoy
Sunsets or relax after a long walk on the beach. The gazebo provided good shade for reading and relaxing. It is also a good gathering place to enjoy a cold cervesa during
"Happy hour" or to BBQ supper.
Within seconds you can be walking miles on miles of beautiful beach or searching for sea shells.
The ocean was warm and fun to swim and play in. The never ending waves provided an opportunity for "boogie boarding " and "surf boarding".
Our unit manager Monica proved to be a great help to us in many ways. Our needs were
well taken care of, she is very efficient and always has a smile.
We are hoping to be able to return again next year and enjoy another winter away
From the cold and snow.
had a good time there. unfortunately although there is a tv provided there is no cable or tv reception available. So only dvd's or if you have access to netflix. Enough drinking water was not available so you need to get refills and or order some in advance, which is an inconvienance to visitors. Direction to the place needs to be better. Was told it was by 4.5 km marker but it is more like the 11km marker south of Canoa and north of Bahia de Caraquez.
