"Incessant, pounding techno music from the pool ALL DAY."
My wife and I are at this moment sitting in the third floor penthouse unit we have rented for two days (for $430.00/nt., pre-paid in full), with all the exterior doors closed and the central A/C running, and the relentless, high volume, thoroughly obnoxious electronic dance music is STILL pounding through the walls. There is an enormous, fabulously appointed private deck just upstairs, with a lovely, large private pool, but we cannot use it because the music is so loud up there that we were unable to carry on a normal conversation. If your idea of a tropical vacation includes any level of peace and quiet, DO NOT STAY HERE. The location very near the beach is very good, and it's an easy walk to the northernmost several blocks of 5th Avenue (starting at about 38th St.) that still retain the easy charm for which PDC used to be known, but this resort is uninhabitable from mid-morning until 7:00 pm, when (they claim), the horrendous noise will finally cease for the night. We fly home tomorrow, and we can't wait.
"Oh where do I start!"
Location- is good. A little further down from main town but, good location. Grounds- (common areas) as pictured. Pool is lovely. Lots of steps. Room- I think the photos will tell all. Horrible!! When we arrived no one helped is with our bags they just sat there. Reception gave us our key and told us to go to our room and wait for the guy to arrive to pay. We were not given the room we paid for online. We're told we were upgraded. The place was dirty, mold in kitchen, smelled of sewer and mold but the have "Chanel" in the diffuser so they obviously know there is an issue. No black out curtain in living where our daughter was to sleep. Black out curtain in bedroom was not wide enough to cover the window. Cabinet and bath hardware loose or missing. Master TV no remote did not work. Living tv had porn on when my daughter turned it on, she turned it off and we could not change the channel. Patio door lock broken, 2nd lock in front door broken, toilet was horrible and appeared to have crap smeared on the walk by toilet. I could go on and on but, I think the pictures will say it all. We paid cash for first night and by the the grace of god found a wonderful place closer to the action.
"Nice staff, pretty cool penthouse 306 "
When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find 2-5 gallon water bottles left for us (one less thing to purchase). The condo is very nice, terrace with pool beautiful. Be aware though, the beds are hard as rocks! Worst sleep I've had in any hotel! Woke up in pain every morning. The condo is equipped with pretty much everything you'd need for a week. T.P. Was abundant but you should use the local grocery delivery (loqsea) to have groceries delivered when you get there- great service! Don't go overboard though, you're close to Fifth Ave. and enough restaurants to keep anyone busy for months! We ate somewhere different every lunch and dinner, never repeated. The staff at BRIC rental were lovely and helpful, even got a welcome bag. Had to stop there prior to condo for keys and check in. Even hosted a cocktail reception in their garden that night! Be sure to use their van service from airport. He dropped us at BRIC to take are of business and then onto condo. He was back for our trip back to the airport at the exact time they said he would. As a whole - lovely vacation except for rock hard beds.
"Great location! Some things needs attention. Lot of noise construction!!!"
Location top!! Website pictures looks better than it was. Looks that some things are 'tired' (toilet sitting, toilet flushing, a bit of sewer air in appartment/bedroom, sliding doors, locks on doors, old dirt in corners and behind fridge....etc For the high price for the penthouse needs some things attention!! Booked an penthouse with terras with pool etc. paid a lot of money but we needed a few days rest and sun,,all the way from the netherlands so we hoped it was worth the money. But it wasn't......could not stay at our nice roof because of the construction noise from the hotel self and neighbour hotel which is build now. See/hear my films. And the hotel didn't warn us in advance for this noise!! Then we would never booked this. Not for that price. We think they should offer an credit for this. Noise was from 8.30 - 18.00. Some rooftop terrases were renovated next to us, it was like laying on an construction site. When travelling such a long way, this was really dissapointing!!!
"Great staff at The Aldea Thai Luxury Condohotel"
We stayed a week at the hotel, right next to the beach, and in the center of the town. Our room were very good, big, bright and comfortable. The great and service oriented staff, made our stay really joyfull. Everytime we needed something, they could provide it, and with a big smile. :-) They were all very nice; but I were mostly in contact with Karina, Dieter and Christopher. :-)
