This has been one of the more difficult places to review as it has pros and cons.
The unit we had was a three bedroom villa with a jacuzzi . The finishings of the villa is not 5 star quality but it is not D grade either .
We stayed here for two months during COVID 19 so the shortcomings really jumped out at us . The kitchen is ill equipped for people wanting to prepare their own meals . The blender was old and affected the taste of whatever you put into it . The owner tried meeting us halfway by buying additional things but it was still limited .
Most of the time the place was amazingly quiet and the wifi brilliant for online work .
However , early hours were noisy and this can be prevented as the noise comes from staff or people outside of the complex. This was still not enough to mark the place down too much . The views are amazing both in the morning and evening . I rated the place on this basis.

Very cold and unwelcoming resort. The unit was very large, but did not contain even basic kitchen equipment. Equipment did not work (drier, stove) No information on area, resort were available. The unit was basic walls, and sparsely equipped. The marina area does not offer a lot to do. A few nice restaurants nearby. Very loud music until early hours of the morning.
Isla marina - tranquil

Spent one month, January, condo owned by Carlos. Beautiful spot, quiet, surrounded by marina. Condo had everything that we needed. Carlos was very gracious host. Lots of iguanas to keep you entertained. 5 minute walk to road to catch local bus to take you into town.
Great for famlies and friends!!!!

This is a very nice spot in the Mexican Pacific, their villas are very spacious and have everything you need, a kitchen, laundry room and a living, the main dormroom has a jacuzzi. Two floors full of a restful environment very well designed. This villas are very appropiate for families or friend groups. You can go to a very close WalMart store and a shopping mall to get your own ingredients to prepare your own food and also go out to a restaurant. Very quiet zone, transportation might be an issue if you want to go out at night but the front desk has a number to call any taxi.
Este hotel es algo maravilloso. Son villas para familias o grupos de amigos. Muchas actividades se pueden hacer en los alrededores, la villa tiene cocina, cuarto de lavandería y espaciosas habitaciones mas sala y jacuzzi en la habitación principal. Puede salir a Walmart a comprar su propia comida y hacerla en casa y alrededor hay varios restaurantes. Salir de noche puede ser un problema pero en la recepción pueden llar un taxi
Wonderful spot for family vacations

We stayed at this resort the week of Feb 8-15, along with 2 other couples.
To begin with, this resort is out of the Golden Zone, so that means more bus and/or cab rides. Good security at the gates which made me very happy.
Our unit was 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, full kitchen, living room,dining room, patio, and had a pool table in the living room. All were very nice - clean, modern. The jetted jacuzzi tub on our balcony was a pleasant feature. The marble spiral staircase was beautiful! Plenty of room and extra bedding in the closets.
Little things like broken screens should be looked at. Would have been nice to keep the windows open at night, but without fitting screens, that's not possible.
My only complaint is the status of the pool and hot tub. The heaters are broken and so both were sitting at about 73 degrees F. Really too cold to be enjoyable. Apparantly the heaters have been broken for 2 years! Please fix! I had thought with the weather being so hot, that the pool would warm up, but it did not. Pool liner coming loose also should be fixed.
WIFI worked wonderfully everywhere on the resort.
We ate at the restaurant twice. There is a language barrier, but it's OUR barrier! This is a spanish speaking country and we should be better prepared! Food was good, but pricier than in the Golden Zone.
Met other people who stay at this resort annually. I can see why. It really is a perfect place if you're travelling with other people, or for an extended stay. Big enough that everyone had their privacy, yet could be together when they chose.
I would definitley stay here again.
