I stayed in Mélida's suite for 31 days and had a wonderful time. The suite itself is clean and very comfortable with its own private bathroom. Mélida also kindly let me use the desk upstairs too so that I could get lots of work done, which I did! The pool is right outside the front door and is a lovely place to spend time relaxing and reading or listening to music while getting some sun. The grocery store is just a short walk away, and I also loved sitting at Bunker, a small outdoor bar down the street, for a couple of drinks and tacos while getting the night air. The best part of Mélida's place is of course Mélida herself; she was warm, generous, hospitable, thoughtful, and made sure I was having a nice time. I loved spending time with her at her lovely home!
Melida was great working with me on a check-in time. She graciously took me at a super late arrival hour. Her condo is located in an upscale gated community which made me feel like I was in a resort community, especially when I was laying by the pool, which she neglected to note in her profile, that is RIGHT across the street from her condo, AWESOME! If you want to get away from the hotel zone and the "centro" this is definitely the place to stay. And if you feel the need to head into town, the bus stop is just up the road. She has a super cute terrier named Giya that i enjoyed walking around the community. We spent NYE with some of her friends and spent the weekend at various beach spots! One of the best NYE I've had. :-)
