"The Podell's were outstanding to work with from start to finish. The concierge picked us up at the airport (three children 12, 11, 7), and we headed to the supermarket. In 30 minutes we had our necessities for the week and were off to the resort.
Upon arrival, we were provided a brief 10-15 minute review of the property (bars/pools/cabanas) and walked up to the condo. We were greeted by Selene(maid) and all groceries were unpacked and luggage was in rooms. Great start to the vacation!
Visiting in mid/late July, be aware this is NOT their busy season. This laid back season appealed to us. Within this property, near the marina, we had no crowding issues and easy access to the two best restaurants within walking distance for dinner. The beach at the property was white sand and clear water...seaweed was around but not abundant. We used a different beach at Caleton.
The condo was incredible with four bedrooms (2 with 2 queens and 2 with Kings). Tons of space and screened porches. We never saw an insect at the condo! Every room was spotless. The TV in the living room could probably stand to be upgraded, but we watched very little TV during our trip. The condo offers 4 1/2 bathrooms and tons of space. My wife and I had plenty of privacy as the kids loved their own half of the condo! Selene showed up daily and washed towels, dishes, bedding, and cleaned. We didn't utilize her for cooking, etc. as our focus was on being at the beach/pool all day. She was fantastic and every towel and beach toy possible was provided.
CapCana offers $3 cab service to any place within CapCana! We utilized their membership and the $3/ten minute ride and used the EdenRoc facilities at Caleton Beach every day. This resort is on par with some of the finest resorts we've ever seen. Pristine beach (think Siesta Key and Turks&Caicos clear), free towels, cabanas, etc. Enormous infinity pools at Eden Roc, cabana service for lunch/drinks, and a nice "pricey" restaurant on site. Service was top notch and the Podell's had our name on the list and we were treated as regulars.
Make friends with a cab/mini van driver and call when needed (we used Clemente for every ride)
Prepare for pricier meals on property, normal for resorts.
Went to village for Italian at Mamma Luisa's, twice (top 5 Italian ever and half price of IL Cappuccino on site)
U.S. Currency works fine, just know the conversion.
Scape Park, just do ZipLine and head back to beach.
