Great week in Cabo Rojo!
My family of four(two kids 20 and 17) decided to spend Christmas away from the snow. This was our first warm weather vacation during winter and Cabo Rojo did not disappoint. We enjoyed sunny, 85 degree weather every day. The condo is in a gated community right on the Caribbean Sea. The view from the balcony is incredible, and we spent hours every morning enjoying our coffee and the view. On that note however, the coffee maker needs to be replaced-it took an hour to make a pot of coffee-it is obviously clogged. The sunsets were also incredible! The pool was never crowded and very refreshing. The community is usually quiet( we did have a rowdy bunch one floor below, one unit over), but security responded to my 2 am phone call. There are also many private homes in Club Deportivo, and we all enjoyed taking walks up to the main gate, looking at the beautiful homes. Restaurants in the area on road 102 were delicious. We enjoyed El Bohio and Vista Bahia a few times. Also, Pelicans Beach Bar, just outside the entrance had delicious burgers. A Selectos Supermarket was just a few miles north, and was extremely convenient. We also had a great time in La Parguera and Playa Sucia(both close enough if you are willing to navigate Puerto Rican roads-which being from Illinois seem like alleys to me). All,of these restaurants and beaches came at the suggestion of Luis, the manager, who was very helpful. As far as cleanliness, the condo was clean on the surface, but could use a deep cleaning. The ceiling fans were filthy! So filthy, I wouldn't even turn them on because I didn't want all that dust flying down on me. And the sofa bed was loaded with crumbs, so we didn't want to open that either. A few of the drawers were coming apart, and could be wiped out. The bathroom could use some more hooks and towel bars. But those are the only complaints. The condo was perfect for my family of four. My son and husband snorkeled right in front of the condo. A suggestion- add two kayaks as part of the rental. We would have loved to been able to kayak from the condo. Also, another set of keys would have been helpful. We ended up leaving the condo open a lot because we were all doing different things. Do not hesitate to rent this condo. Cabo Rojo is a very good value. 20 steps from the sea! We miss it every day!
