"The booking process directly with owner was really easy and straightforward: it was my first time doing so, but everything went very well, so do not worry about this part. The recommendation from Sherri for Airport transportation was also spot on, its really good value to book the private little bus and its worth paying the $25 extra for a stop at Walmart to stock-up (esp. those heavy booze and beer bottles..:)). location of the El Faro condo complex is really good as it is Ocean front and just a block from the 5th Avenue buzzing place. It also has the best pool amongst the lot as we took many walks along the beach and noticed the other places had smaller pools. The property was also very well managed with front reception always manned at advertised hours and many security and cleaning staff, all amazingly friendly (esp. Miguel, sooo friendly). Their professionalism and dedication is worth every penny of your tips. This particular apartment was REALLY well appointed and decorated: huge beds with quality mattresses, excellent showers, abundant supply of towels and toiletries (Dont bother messing with small shampoo and bath soap bottles for plane carry-on...) and very nicely decorated: It was like staying in 5 star luxury place, except its better value and you get to eat and cook what you want when you want… :)). If you are too bored with the amazing views and swim, pls talk to Rogelio, he is the very nice gentleman (speaking very good english) who goes around with excursion folders around his arm and sits in an umbrella just right of El Faro beach. He hooked us with couple of great tours at very good prices. If you see him, pls say hello from Nour."
