We had a lovely stay here, the beach front access is exactly what we wanted & the shell hunting was fantastic! Town was exactly 20 minutes and the Mayan Palace was also another 20 minutes away for activities (when we weren't relaxing on OUR beach).
Loved the beach where we stayed at playa encanto and paradise villas. Mary was very helpful and had great communication with us. This beach is truly a gem. Definitely recommend it if you don't want the noise and crowds on rocky point
I will be going back for sure! My friend was a little worried because it was 20 minutes from town but that was the point! I wanted to stay somewhere right on the beach that was quiet, no drunk young people, and no vendors coming at you every 2 seconds. Although some did manage to make their way to us. But maybe only 10 total in 4 days. We brought in all our food and drink so we could just chill on the beach and not have to drive anywhere. The master bed was super comfortable and listening to the ocean waves at night through the screen door just sooths you. I do recommend stocking up on ice for your coolers to keep your beers ice cold. They have a Sam's Club about 20 minutes away so stop their for huge bags of ice and then enjoy your time rewarding yourself from your hectic life. Maybe even get a massage on the beach like I did. Loved it!
This was my first trip to Puerto Penasco and would do it again. The townhouse was clean and the perfect size for me and my sister. It was spring break and even though we are away from the hotels and bars it was still noisy with the neighbors but again it was spring break so very expected ted!!! The beach was awsome the sunsets were awsome and had an all around great time.
Just a few things that would have made it over the edge!!!! 1. Needs a new security door on the front as the one there is flimsy and does not latch so flies were able to come in. And I hate flies.. 2. The spare bedroom upstairs does not have a screen door on the slider so again flies were able to come in. 3. There was a box of cascade for the dishwasher that was just a brick. Moisture there is not a friend when it comes to powder soap. The individually wrapped pods would work much better. So bring some when you go..
We got a little lost when we got close so remember to bring your written directions. We got lucky and found a vacation rental agency who was able to get us back on the right path. I would definitely visit here again but would be nice if 1 and 2 above were fixed.
