Firstly the good (and there is much of it): this condo is spacious, light, airy and perfectly positioned right on the beach within the gated and extremely safe Club Santiago complex. The view from the balcony over the pool and the beach is nothing short of spectacular. The beds are very comfortable and there is wi-fi and efficient air conditioning in all rooms. The pool area is a major plus, being well maintained and especially safe and suitable for young children. There is also dedicated parking at the rear and a daily maid service.
And the not so good: in short, the condo could do with a complete overhaul. Many of the fixtures and fittings, though comprehensive enough, are tired and showing their age. Maintenance is also lacking - examples range from loose (maybe dangerous) electrical outlets, rusty metalwork on doors, a defective toilet and light fittings, Those things can be easily fixed, but what is needed most is a complete update of the kitchen and bathrooms ...
