Pros: Martha's Place is located on a lovely resort that has a beautiful private beach. The resort is really nice and we loved how private it was. I had the beach to myself almost every morning. The apartment had soap, detergent, candles, bug spray, and it is pleasantly decorated with lovely art. But, that it where our love affair ends.
Cons: Martha told us to call her when we landed because it would be very late. She said that she would leave the key with the guard if she got tired. When we landed, we called her immediately and she never answered the phone! We called her repeatedly, but no answer just voice mail! So, we decided to drive there figuring that the guard would have the key as promised. We got there at almost 3 am and the guard had no idea what we were talking about. No key! Unfortunately, he didn't speak English and Martha had never contacted him. We ended up sleeping in the parking lot in the rental car for 4 hours! We were exhausted, hot, and had to hold our bladder until we could get inside. Then, when she finally called us back around 7 am; she claimed that she misunderstood our arrival time despite having spoke to me right before we boarded and she spoke to another member of our party a month before to discuss check-in times.
After we got inside, the toilet in the main bedroom wouldn't flush. I called Martha and she sent her daughter with a plunger. Luckily, the toilet started to flush after a few tries. Then, we noticed that there were ants everywhere! The kitchen, bathrooms, and the main bedroom had ants everywhere!
Likewise, I sent Martha a message for information about the beach after we had been there a few days and she never responded.
Lastly, a member of our party had a mix up with her flight and needed to stay longer to wait it out for 12 hours. Martha agreed to let her stay because no one was coming in afterwards, but she wanted to charge her $80! They bartered and got the price down to $45, but you would think that Martha would have let her stay for free since our check-in was so horrific and no one else was coming in after us. But, no.
I would stay at this resort again, BUT never again at Martha's!
