On consecutive weeks I stayed here and at nearby Hosteria Del Lago. No comparison. My ground floor apartment here had a wooden patio door that was secured with an iron rod that could have easily been lifted from the outside. No lock at all on the inner sliding glass door. Zero security. Staff wore grungy t-shirts and raggedy jeans but were extraordinarily nice and helpful. My apartment was dirty with badly soiled carpets. The kitchen sink sprang a leak while I was out -- without me ever having used it -- and flooded the floor. The view of the lake was mostly obscured by trees. I can't comment on the relative value of the place because the rate I paid was through the Armed Forces Vacation Club; charges are the same for all participating space-available resorts around the world. I could only recommend Apart Costa Azul if the rates were extremely low and the traveler was ready to accept that you get what you pay for.
