Slice of Paradise
Monarch of the Sea was perfect. The condo is actually much bigger than the pics indicate and exceeded our expectations. Every room is like an oversized hotel room and decorated well with comfy beds. The living space is large with a niced size kitchen that was very well stocked, and even had Tupperware for leftovers. Nice stainless steel appliances,( range and dishwasher switches are in Spanish, fortunately I speak the language). Washer and dryer worked perfectly and with 8 of us there we used them several times a day (once again switches are in Spanish). Has Rheem a/c units in every room that worked great. Each room could control the desired temp which made for a great night sleep for all of us. The view from inside the condo is absolutely amazing. It has glass doors all the way around the condo which can be opened or just raise the blinds to see out. The view from the condo is stunning!! The wrap around porch is amazing!! Literally can go from any room out to the balcony and see the sea. Mornings were our favorite. Ate breakfast on the balcony looking at the beautiful property and sea almost every day. We used the grill several times. The maid service is great. Came twice during our 11 night stay. Alex, the property manager was very nice and answered any questions we had at any time. The guards at the entrance to the property will go out of their way to help you any way they can for a little tip money (getting a taxi, directions, helping with luggage, etc.) Residencias Reef is beautiful and quiet. It has 4 buildings of units but there was hardly anybody there. Almost had the beach to ourselves everyday. They have around 40 beach chairs and 6/7 hatches with chairs under them, never saw more than 2-3 families on the beach. Two pools. We used the one over looking the beach as did most guests. The pools were never crowded and were perfect to cool off after spending a day at the beach. The pool and the beach were immaculately clean. We saw the grounds keepers cleaning the pool daily and raking the beach daily. Residencias Reef property is very clean and quiet. We only had a rental cars for 2 days of our stay and do recommend Fiesta. They delivered the cars to us just outside the airport and picked them up at the condo the next day. When going home, the delivered them to the condo and picked them up just outside the airport. So convenient for us. This condo has everything you need and is absolutely stunning!! Thanks for a great vacation!!
Great location and amenities
Great place to stay!!
The condo and private beach was perfect. There were 5 of us in our 50’s and it was quiet and clean.
This is a property that we will consider returning to yearly. Very, very nice!
Perfect property for family diving trip!
This was our third time to stay at the Residencias Reef and this condo was by far our favorite! The living area and rooms were spacious and the views from the upper deck are incredible. We really like the convenience of catching the dive boat from the dock in front of the Secrets Resort - but beware - the management at Secrets is trying to collect $2.00 from each person every time he/she gets on or off a boat (which adds up for a large group). According to our dive master, this isn't legal but unfortunately, it may discourage us from staying at the Residencias Reef in the future.
Perfect condo ... excellent service!!
From the beginning ... our communication with the property management via email prior to arrival was outstanding!! They answered ALL questions promptly, offered perfect grocery delivery service, rental car arrangements, excellent personal chef (Fernando), and scuba diving arrangements (Alberto)! PLUS, we had Alex ...his excellent management was SOOOOO very attentive on WhatsApp. He answered SO promptly and with enthusiasm! He suggested the best local Mexican family restaurant!! Amazing!! He will be able to suggest anything, everything and take care of ALL your needs! We traveled with another couple and their 2 children ... so, this 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom condo was perfect! Everyone was attentive and so helpful. Condo was spacious, well equipped, perfectly furniture, washer and dryer, beautiful sunsets from the top deck, 2 pools and private beach steps away. Thank you SO much for all you kindness and everything ... we had a fabulous time!!!
We wish we would have more time at this excellent condo. My wife loved the water pressure in the shower--much better than other properties we have stayed at in Mexico. Lovely views and wrap-around deck. Our kids loved the pool and the beach! We look forward to coming back in the future...
