We were in communication with our host, Federico, quite a bit before we arrived. He was very helpful and answered all of my questions promptly. Another gentleman, Cristian, met us at the condo to show us around and give us keys. He was very nice but spoke very little English, and unfortunately we don't know much Spanish, so the conversation was a bit awkward at times but we got the jest of things. The condo is beautiful, just as the pictures show. There was a nice little supply of sunscreens, aloe vera gel and bug repellent (which you'll need if you go out after dark - the sand fleas are nasty, my friend had swollen red bumps all over her body from their bites) in the master bath. The didn't have any extra toilet paper, so we had to buy more and they gave us plenty of towels but no washcloths. They have the kitchen basics along with a few handfuls of canned goods, dried pastas, beans, etc. We were hoping to get groceries to save money but the only thing nearby was the Pearl Club Deli across the street. It's overpriced but we were able to grag a few bottles of wine, eggs, bread, chorizo, garlic, chips and some baked goods. I wish I would've been told how isolated we were. The condo complex is next door to The Westin with 5 fairly good restaurants and a short walk down the beach to The Intercontinental. But that's it, no village, nothing else and it's not safe to walk on or near the road, in my opinion. So you'll need a driver or rent a car if you want to get out and about. We used a driver, Kleriston, who lives at the condo complex (+(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), while we were there. He was very helpful, speaks English and quite reasonable -$20 airport ride.
