Its always scary to rent a house sight unseen, but Anders the President of the management company was amazing to work with and alleviated my fears! The house was just as imagined and the staff made it even better! They were fantastic - especially Junior our chef - he was unbelievable (I think many of our group were trying to kidnap him - ha ha!)
The beach was literally 20 steps away. It was very clean (quite a bit a seaweed but I think that depends on what time of the year you go) and we made quick friends with Sasha - the Russian homeless guy who has been stranded there. He was the mayor of the beach even though he only spoke russian!!
Griselda was our group/house manager and she was awesome! She helped us set-up excursions, took us to great local bars and partied with us! We all loved her!
The rest of the staff - Charo and Johani were the most pleasant and accommodating girls ever - sometimes hard to communicate due to language barriers but a fun game of charades always got us close!
When it comes to the excursions - we did the doc fish, dune buggies and reef excursion. The doc fish was well worth it - we all wanted to do it again! The dune buggies were fun - just be prepared to stop multiple times for organized "buy from the locals". The reef excursion was sub par. If you like snorkeling - don't waste your time or money. I attached the highlights in my pictures.
The ride there from the airport was fine for the large group that arrived at the same time, but a snafu for others that came separately.
One thing to consider - this house is not in a heavy commercial area so transportation is necessary if you want to go to a casino or sightsee - definitely doable just a pain.
My 50th birthday celebration was perfect and this house is well worth the investment!
