“Exactly what was advertised, exactly what we needed!”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The location was fabulous, right on the ocean and near but not in front of the olympic-sized pool. We were only steps to the soft sand beach and could hear the waves all through the day on that porch and all night while we slept. The condo was larger than the pictures show and we had plenty of space for our family of four to spread out. The master and all the other rooms were tastefully decorated and we could see the pride of ownership show throughout. Our host was extremely thoughtful and the instructions and helpful hints made for a great Christmas/New years stay. Fireworks right on the beach! The location was secluded so that there were not mobs of other people, but there were enough other guests around which made you feel safe. the owner's local manager took care of all our needs perfectly. Las Brisas del Mar was definitely a great place to unwind and reconnect.

“Everything for the adventurer!”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It is very clean and comfortable with many extras. The wi-fi, appliances, and bathrooms exceeded our expectations. The available bikes and kayaks were awesome and we took full advantage of them. Very close to the pool and beach as well as a good jump off point for the mountains. Great place to stay for the active traveler or to just lounge by the pool. Great birding and hiking in walking distance and good restaurants too! This condo was better than many rentals we have had in the U.S. and we would recommend to anyone. Already planning our next trip and will definitely stay here again. Thanks!

“BEAUTIFUL GETAWAY”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This place was above my expectations. As soon as we walked in the place we saw how we it was maintained. They have the latest gadgets for you to use. The beds are so comfortable that you wake up refreshed. The beach is beautiful and very private. My daughters didn't want to leave. We had the best getaway ever. We came back home relaxed. I would recommend this place and would definitely stay again.

Thanks so much for your comments. I did change the pool photo to better show off the large, clean pool. The pool is wonderful because you are correct that you have to use caution when going in the ocean at certain tides and conditions, especially with children. We love the remoteness and solitude of Playa La Barqueta, but some people want a bit more "action" during vacations. I am glad you were able to enjoy the lagoon and monkey tour and not get hit by unwanted flying objects!

“Nice condo at the beach”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The condo was nice, clean and well cared for. The owner clearly cares about providing her guests with a nice, comfortable stay. The furniture is nice, the beds are nice, the fridge is large, there is a patio, there is clean drinking water, it is on the first floor so you don't have to take luggage up to the 3rd floor and the directions from David are extremely detailed (down to the nearest 1/100th KM!). My biggest hesitation before going there was that the picture of the pool was not a good picture and I was worried that it might be terrible. The pool was very nice. It was large and had a large portion that was about 1 foot deep and there were plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. I cannot give the condo 5 stars because Playa Barqueta didn't totally fit MY definition of paradise but it might fit YOUR definition of paradise. It was quite hot so we limited our midday activities. The beach is wide (150 feet at low tide?), endless, deserted and flat (easy for walking). The downside is that everyone tells you, "Don't get drowned by the undertow." I'm not sure what percentage of people die but when you listen to haters it makes it sound like 100%. The beach is so flat you'd think you could play around and have some fun in the water but we decided to not have our 9 year old out there taking his chances. So, if your definition of paradise includes playing freely in the ocean this location does not fit your definition. However, if you are looking for a remote beach and a nice place to stay this just might be paradise for you. Two traveling tips: The directions start from the "Rey" grocerty store in David. Do your grocery shopping for the entire trip right there. If you forget anything you're looking at a 30 minute drive back to town. There is a tiny grocery about 5 minutes from Playa Barqueta but if you need a weeks worth of groceries you want to load up at Rey. Make a list in advance. Condos don't always have oil, butter, spices, etc... so try to think of everything. Tip 2: The condo owner (Nina?) arranged a fishing trip and jungle adventure for us w/ a local guy (sorry his name escapes me right now). The fishing didn't work out but we saw 3 families of (poop throwing) howler monkeys. That was awesome and although the monkeys hit me w/ some branches they missed us with the poop. We'll never forget that!
