Renter Beware! It is not as it seems!

  • 2 of 5

The interior of the condo is just as pictured but the view is not. The panoramic view we belived we were getting, to our surprise, was blocked by a seven story building. We were really disappointed from the moment we walked in. Looking at the pictures, my wife and I could imagine romantic sunsets from the patio deck but unfortunately that never happened. I asked my brother in law, who lives in Puerto Vallatra, how long the building had been there and he informed me that the building had been there for months. The pictures in the listing showed a breath taking viwe of the ocean from the plunge pool and deck. Those pictures are obviously out dated and I find it hard to believe the owner of the property or the property management company were unaware of the building that now blocks the view.

Also, the showers in the condo are unuseable. The hot and cold knobs in no way have anything to do with the temperature of the water. You get scalding hot, then ice cold, then scalding hot and then ice cold again. If your fast, there is a 20-30 second interval between the scalding hot and ice cold cycle when the water is normal shower temperature, but you gotta be fast!

My other complaint is the noise. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation and are planing on sleeping in to get some well deserved rest, bring ear plugs! The guy across the street raises fighting cocks and each one is trying to crow louder than the next. From about 4am until dusk COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!!

I did complain to the owner, I told him that I felt mislead by the photos of his listing and that my wife, two small children and I had to shower down the street at the place my older daughters rented. He did offer to refund us %15 of the rental cost and my reply was, I felt more than 15% mislead. I told him that I felt we deserved at least a 50% refund and In the end, he did refund us 30%. Which is the only reason I gave a 2 star rating. If not for that I would have only given a 1 star rating.

As I look at the listing today, it still advertises "panoramic views" and shows pictures of the bay from the deck and pool area. Renter beware! It is not as it seems!
