Our family of two adult and two kids stayed in a "villa" on Ocean Ridge at Amarilla Golf during September 2011.
The property is set at the far end of the sprawling complex which is more like a small town with individual communities. Most of the people we saw we of retirement age and retired UK ex-pat's.
I appreciate that we were there at the end of the season.
Certain parts of the area are either derelict, run down or half completed buildings which are not very pleasant on the eye.
However most of area is nice and clean with some lovely properties.
Our villa was OK and clean although could have done with an update and re-furbishment. The fly screen off the main bedroom was broken and taped up rendering it unusable. The outside awning was also torn in several places.
There is no air conditioning and that coupled with the broken fly screen made the nights a bit hot and sticky!
The villa has a well equipped kitchen with a washing machine, oven, hob and microwave. If we did eat in we used the supplied BBQ instead.
The lounge has satellite TV with the main UK channels including Sky Sports. There is also a DVD player.
Both bedrooms were spacious with the main having an en suite bath with overhead shower. The other toilet has a walk-in shower.
The lounge and bedrooms have ceiling fans which basically just circulate the air and have no cooling benefits at all.
Maid service was every other day and they were very friendly and thorough.
Cris on reception was very helpful and has a good local knowledge.
The pool was a few paces to a security gate then up some stairs. As we were there off season we had it virtually to ourselves all week.
There are plenty of supermarkets in the area, the nearest about half a km away as are some bars and restaurants.
Near the harbour and San Blas area have a wide choice of bars and restaurants including local, Italian, Indian, Chinese etc.
I would stress that you do need a car not only to explore the surrounding area but within the complex itself as it is so large.
All-in-all OK for a week, especially if you are a golfer and your kids aren't teenagers
