Frequently Asked Questions
Is There A Solid Internet Connection?
You bet! We will have high-speed internet throughout the property and private units. There is also cell reception, the best connection is through TelCel. An important part of the ethos of the project is the ability to be able to work remotely improving the overall quality of life of the buyer. Understanding that this hinges on wiﬁ, we invite you to disconnect from the hustle-bustle of urban living while staying fully connected in paradise.
Are The Units Furnished?
The Hideaway units are completely outfitted with furniture, accessories, linens and decor under the same style guide as the hotel. There is no flexibility on this as they will be rented and maintained under the hotel management program. You can bring your decor and personal accessories out when you are using it but everything will be stored within the lock closet of your unit when you are away. Don’t worry, these units are tastefully equipped under the style direction of Andrés Saavedra. Through the interior design services included in the sales price for the beach estates and ocean view villas, we will work to customize your homes.
What Is The Deal With Utilities?
Electricity is run to the property and we will have a transformer and backup generator; however, most of our energy will be generated from solar. We have two working wells on the property and will have ample cisterns, bio-pools and water treatment and filtration plants on site. All rooflines have been designed specifically for water collection which will be reused within the home and grey water systems will be used for landscaping.
