Balcon vs Royal Sun

  • Ok .. before we start I admit I am biased. Having stayed at the Royal sun many times, I thought it was a brilliant place and was very sad to see its demise. But its loss meant I finally plunged my hand into my pocket and bought somewhere in an area I have come to love (warts and all)

    But people trying to compare Balcon to the Royal Sun irritates me. Balcon to me on the outside looks like a block of flats on a council estate, and why don't they ever show any pictures of the view? Maybe because most of them can only see the outside of Tamaimo Tropical?

    Yes, inside they may be lovely, and they are still available, but here are two pictures to illustrate my point.

    First .. Balcon

  • No Royal sun, the position on the terrace is about the same, note the difference in view!

    Cheers!!

  • Why do we need to even try and compare these two places? One went out of business and the other actually exists.
    Many people now own on Balcon de Los Gigantes and congratulations to them on their property purchase. So long as these people are happy and the people that stay in these apartments are happy also then what does it matter to anyone else?
    Am bored of these stupid discussions. Personally think it quite funny to try and compare something that went bankrupt with anything at all. Yes the Royal Sun did have a spectacular view and I dont think anyone would dispute that fact but what does the place look like right now? That view isnt so great now that we cant get in the building due to all the fencing!!

    And before you ask, no I'm not an owner at Balcon. Just someone who finds all the nasty comments about Balcon a little annoying. If you dont like it, then dont go there. Kind of straight forward.

  • Sorry Guys, as has been said before - the Royal Sun is no more. It has ceased to be.
    It was an awful long way up the hill though.
    Ah well, a la recherche du temps perdu.

  • Yep .. 'tis no more, mores the pity! We did invest there and sadly lost out. BUT ... point I was trying to make has been sadly overllooked.  Comments on views & balcony sizes on other posts on this board

    I know comments like "Beautiful plumage the Norwgegian Blue" might spring to mind along with the the reply about the viability of the Royal Sun, but it doesn't stop me from expressing my views (or does it, the mighty Gigi?)

  • Hola LaCochinillo,

    Sorry to hear that you ended up out of pocket.

    (The plumage don't even enter in to it)
