Santa Cruz condo
This condo is very spacious and well situated. The manager and the on site person were both very responsive to our questions and anything that we needed. I would recommend the condo for anyone who wants to stay in the area.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope you will visit again and keep us in mind.
You gotta stay here!
My wife and I spent 19 nights here from Oct 17 to Nov 5, 2018 and loved it. Weather cooperated at about 31C every day. The condo is well laid out to accommodate six people in beds and perhaps a couple of others (kids) on the sofa in a pinch. The kitchen is well equipped and very functional. The property is gated and very secure although we never felt a moment's concern walking anywhere in the area.
The pool and common area are very well maintained and the pool is a godsend at the end of a day's excursions to cool down, relax and have a cool refreshment.
The property is very well located to everything. The beach is a five minute easy walk and there are many beach bars and very good, small restaurants in walking distance. There are also a few small convenience stores, a pharmacy, and a souvenir market very close at hand. You can walk into the village of La Crucecita in about 20 minutes for shopping at a well provisioned supermarket. There is also a second supermarket in easy taxi range. Take a taxi home for three pesos. In fact, anywhere in the area is pretty much three pesos. You can take a taxi further afield to other towns and many other beaches for not a whole lot more. We didn't need a rental car. in fact, we booked one with our flight and thought it was a really good deal until we got to the rental office at the airport and they told us how much our insurance would cost, YIKES! We cancelled the rental and cabbed it all the time for a fraction of the rental cost. The commercial harbour is five minutes and you can obtain a wide variety of day excursions on sea or land for very little cost.
Onsite manager ( Alba ) is a real gem! Very little English but great at charades to get her thoughts across. She also has a translator on her phone to communicate bigger ideas. Angelica, the overall manager (offsite) was in easy reach by email and was very prompt to respond to any concerns we had (few).
The only small negative is the proximity to the street which is very busy and brings a noticeable noise level. The advantage to having the street that close is that you can walk fifty feet out your door and have a taxi at your command in less than a minute. Convenient!
In summary, when we return to Huatulco, this property (ground floor) and their other condo in the same complex (third floor) will be front of mind to rent again. Try it. You'll love it!
Tom & Dora
Tom and Dora it was a pleasure having you and so glad your stay was enjoyed. That is our first priority, to do our best to help make it memorable.
I did want to point out that as I write we are working on replacing the windows to double pane, we are informed that this would definitely help.
I hope to hear from you when you return to vacation with us again.
They owners are very attentive. The condo is well equipped and comfortable beds. The court yard and pool is clean and well maintained. Great location so close to everything.
Thank you for your staying with us! Glad you enjoyed your stay! Please visit us again soon!
we stayed there for two weeks this january (2016). the condo is nice. the building is recent, with not too many units, there is a nice pool and the location is great. you can walk to la crucecita by the new park that cuts through the mountain right across the road, the beach is a 3 minute walk and there are some shops and restaurants right there on the corner and also a nice park with big trees.
But... when we were there we had cockroaches.. not just one... for two weeks
we told the owner about it after the first occurence and he seemed genuinely surprised and concerned... for his condo but not so much for us. After i went trough the place and tried to locate the source, i found that they seemed to be coming from the drains. especially in the washer and dryer room.
he sent somebody to check it out and put a screen in some drains (he should have done it everywhere). we were willing to forget one incident but after two weeks of finding some, dead and alive, it really put a black cloud in our vacation.. especially with two Young kids in the place (2 and 4 years old)
when i asked him if we could review the price of the rental or maybe have a rebate on a future rental (if he fixed the problem) he was either silent by email or very elusive and quick to dismiss by phone..
now you know
i talked to other renters in the building and nobody had seen any in their units
This was a first for us. No one mentioned that they saw any bugs coming up the drain. Once we heard, we were on it. We have another condo at same location and no sightings nor with any other condos in the same building. We have addressed this issue and others have stayed after the incident and the problem was solved.
We take pride on making sure that your stay is a enjoyable one.
The Condo was in a great location backing onto the marina and within a 5 minute walk from great restaurants and the beach.This unit was a bit noisy as it was right next to the entrance gate and the street. It didn't bother us too much however it could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. The condo itself is beautiful and well represented by the photos. It didn't have some of the basics that we are used to such as salt and pepper, paper products (there were only two rolls of toilet paper), coffee filters etc. The pool was sunny in the morning and shaded in the afternoon which was ideal for us. Overall we would recommend this condo and would return.
Yes, the condo is in a great location! Salt and pepper shakers have been replaced and I've made a list so we check after each guest to make sure we stock up on low items☺️. I'm not sure if guest slepted with windows open but I know the second bedroom is very quiet.
home away from home
we really enjoyed the location-close to restaurants, bus, beach and you could really walk everywhere. there was always a nice breeze by the pool,which is great on hot days. the pool and common areas were kept clean and the complex was secure. the condo itself was very spacious-the beds were very comfortable. the owner,though not there for most of our stay, was very attentive if there was a problem- a quick email and the issue would be addressed. the owner had ramps made so the condo entry would be accessible -the ramp is a bit steep though. the inside ramps were great---there's about a 6 cm step from the dining to living areas so that was really great. the showers were good--lots of hot water.
The Real Marina Blue condo is positioned in the middle of the nine bays. There is always some place different to go and explore. It is very easy to get around, taxis are very inexpensive, and you can walk to do most things.
