There were six of us who stayed at this condo in mid-December 2016. The view from the patio across Banderas Bay is spectacular. There is a small table and 4 chairs that allow you to sit and take in the view while drinking your margaritas.
The 3 bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Each of the bedrooms has its own issues. The master bedroom dresser was falling apart. The drawers were all broken and it was very difficult to use them. The A/C in the master was quite loud but did keep the room reasonably cool. The shower was nearly unusable. The hot and cold water connections were very poor. You had to turn on the cold water completely on and then the hot water about 1/16th of a turn to have anything close to a warm shower. The hot water was scalding hot and if you turned the hot water faucet on more than 1/16th we were unable to stay in the shower.
One of the other bedrooms had problems with the A/C but the manager Felipe was able to get this problem resolved. The 3rd bedroom seemed to have the fewest problems of any.
There are large roll-down shades on the patio to block the afternoon sun. These were difficult to operate and fell to the ground one afternoon and fortunately didn’t hit anyone. We contacted Felipe and he had the shades back in place by the next day. All of the shades were left in the down position as we didn’t want to take a chance on them falling again. This kept us from appreciating the view of the bay.
The pool is unheated and even though it is warm in December we weren’t able to use the pool. The water was just too cold. The kitchen was adequately stocked with appliances and utensils. We ate only twice in the condo. The remainder of our meals we ate out.
All in all, the place is great for the views but lacking in so many other ways. We will be finding a new rental next December.
Our family spent 10 days over Christmas in this open concept penthouse and we loved everthing from the view, on deck pool and open air kitchen. Phillpe was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We would definitely come back.
