This condo needs a MAJOR MAKE OVER, dining room chairs are broken, living room center table is missing the glass and sand has built up in the cracks, lamps are missing lighbulbs, luckily I brough extra light bulbs, metal frame pictures on the wall are dusty, nice wood armoire but cheap 16" TV / VCR / DVD. Only two tv channels, DVD does not work, VCR does not work. Leather sofa is old but OK, two side orange suede sofas are to be dumped in the trash asap, they are greasy discusting and dirty. Large condo for 12 people but has short supply of kitchen amenities, four plates, four coffee cups, four spoons, four forks, plastic cups, discusting kitchen. Unlike condo A302 which has everything in good quantities and good quality and in abudance all nice glass plates, glasses etc. cable, stereo. plenty of movies to look at magazines, table games, extra pillows blankets, surf boards. Condo A506 is a very discusting cheap place, The grout in the kitchen counter is brown, green and black depending on where you look. The grout in the kitchen floor is black, oily and greasee, electronic stove does not function well, of the four burners only two burners work, the oven for baking does not work, the fridge started cooling after the third day and it froze everything once it started to cool. Glass windows are dirty. The only good thing in this condo is the master bedroom, wide space, comfortable king size bed, nice mattress. Three years ago we stayed in the same condo and it was much cleaner and nicer, this time our room was full of dirt, the floor did not get mopped or clean by the maid service during the four days that stayed from 8/8/13 thru 8/12/13. Rental contract automatically charges $95 for cleaning fees, cleaning what...? When we got in at 4:00 pm on Thursday 8/8/2013, another family had just gotten out, and as we moved in, we could still smell the onions and we found crums of food on the table, on the floor and in the kitchen counter and in the oven. The kitchen dishes are from the .99 cent store, very poor quality of kitchen appliances, maid service was very poor, and asked us to wash the dishes and clean up before we leave. This is our fifth time at Princesa de Penasco but we will never rent condo A506 ever again. The A/C leaks from the roof, Reception said it will get it worked on, it never did, why then rent the condo if its not properly conditioned. The view outside is nice but it does not make up for the smell of the rooms downstairs. Balcony chairs are old and rusted, center table in the balcony is missing the glass, you will need to put your drinks on the floor or in the balcony and hope they don't fall on the condo below. If you plant to rent A506 you better find another condo or go the next Sonoran Desert condos. Don't waste your money as we did this time. $845 for four days. Overall Princesa is a great hotel, but the owners of these condo should visit the place to see what I am talking about. This place is OK for $30/night but not for what we paid. Waste of money. We are from San Diego CA, and all together we were 4 adults and 3 children. We will return to Princesa de Penasco again but one thing is for sure we will never again rent this condo, and I will ensure that none of my other relatives from LA ever make a mistake of renting this condo A506.

Room Tip: Be sure to select only Condos in "A" & "E" locations as they all have clear ocean view and you are only steps from the sand. Condos "B" "C" & "D" are away from the ocean. Condos located in the upper levels have nicer furniture and are newer and better decorated. Condos located on the first or second level are more for handicapped people and are pretty empty, they mostly have cheap used furniture and cheap Home Depot plastic chairs in their kitchens. Very noisy as well as they close to the pool. Trust me. If you plan to stay at Princesa take my advice. This is our fifth visit and we know which condos to stay away from A506. All others are OK. A Good condo is A302, very clean with nice amenities and E302 has high end furniture all around the condo.

The condo was nicely appointed, and was everything we needed for our family of four. Gorgeous ocean views, and the most spectacular sunsets we've ever seen. The beach is fantastic! The Reservation Desk was attentive, and easy to work with. Would stay here again in a minute!

Room Tip: Girls Getaway, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway

Wow, the Princesa has 3 swimming pools, hot tub, volley ball, workout area all right on the beach. The views from my TOP FLOOR Condo that I rented was to die for. Coffee in The unit D505 in the morning was the best.

Spent the weekend at the Princessa with our Family of 4. Was very impressed in the effort the Resort put into securing the guests and vehicles. We stayed in D207 when we arrived the condo was very clean and furnished with every item you could think off except food. The two bedroom condo also had movies of all sorts in each room including VHS movies. One bedroom even came with a pack and play for children. The downfall to this very nice room on the second floor was the many spiders on the walls and broken wall fan in back bedroom, along with many broken blinds in the living room and bedrooms. Besides keeping up with the insect population that could be dangerous if someone gets bitten the room was awesome and we cant wait to go back. Also there is a small grill and bar called the Agave the food wasn't very good mostly fried and bar type food great beer specials at happy hour and the pool and ocean are about 30 steps from the resort.

This was my first time in Rocky Point in 18 years!! I didn't know what to expect. WE rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo - building C, second floor. The views of the pool and ocean were wonderful. Furniture in the condo was nice. There was even a washer/dryer.
I felt safe the whole time we were there. Even when we went downtown to the fish market.
I cannot believe this is only a 4 hour drive for us. We will be going back - hopefully before the end of the summer.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms are ocean view. all rooms have patio furniture, so you can sit outside.
