There is daily maid service and your towels are changed daily. The maids and staff are very pleasant. A small tip each day keeps everyone happy and maintains good service.
There is a small heated pool that looks out over the ocean (a never-ending effect). I swam every day and had no trouble getting in. The first day there we had trouble getting a lounger, but after that it was no problem.
Happy Hour is every day from 4 to 6pm. The bartender’s name is Jenaro del Toro. I would suggest paying your bill nightly rather than running a tab. That way you can be sure of the bill.
There is a restaurant but we thought it was too expensive and the food was average.
The facility is very clean and comfortable.

The unit has a full kitchen with oven and gas range and a medium sized refrigerator. The two bedroom unit was like being in a house and there were two great sized bathrooms, both with tubs. The one bedroom units, although equally as large had a very small bathroom.
We never had to worry about vendors because we were too far out for them to come and see us. We spent a lot of time swimming and lying in the sun. The staff was friendly, but after 5pm they all went home and there was a night guy at the desk. The restaurant on site was not the best food and only stayed open until 2pm. When we had a problem or needed something it was taken care of right away, but it's not a place where you will be pampered. It's down home. There was daily maid service and they changed your sheets in the middle of the week. So if it's solitude you're looking for, you've found it.
We enjoyed the people and made friends with one of the employees, Alberto Hernandez. We went on a private tour with Alberto and had fun. Besides other people we met, Alberto was the best thing that happened. He did a nice job on the tour and was a great 21 year old to deal with. He taught himself English and spoke the language extremely well. We met his family and were invited to his home. If you're looking for someone to do private trips give him a call at 01-669-983-1155 or send him an e-mail at "firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell him Dan and Corinne sent you. He will probaly be working at the Playa Maria next year, which is where we bought into. We sold the Marina Del Rey while we were there.
