Very good value, especially the location. You are right on the beach and across the street is a big shopping mall with a grocery store. Alejandra, the manager, was very helpful. It is not 5 star but for the price you have everything you need including clean sheets and beds. We were 5 people comfortably. I will stay again!

It depends on the owner, as the condos are individually owned. Caveat emptor! Nice to have Selecto across the street, really close to the bus stop. Buses take you everywhere fast! Our owner misrepresented the unit, with false pictures and we had to throw a fit to get the AC fixed, etc. Old, beat up cookware, etc. The complex itself... More

Three adults rented a 2 bedroom penthouse. Was advertised as a updated, luxurious penthouse. Was sufficient, as it was clean, great location and served our purpose. However, the unit was not as advertised. Upon arrival, we had 3 bath towels, 3 beach towels, one hand towel for each bathroom. For a full week. We requested additional towels from managements.

Based on the numerous 5 star reviews, the photos, and the listed amenities on the various web sites, we booked “The Penthouse Gem #705” via Trip Advisor/Home Away. The reviews lead us to believe that this was an upscale accommodation, properly furnished, and in working order. The reverse was true. The condominium complex is old and in need of major... More

Live unique experiences at Xel-Há Mexico with its amazing coves, cenotes and ponds, in the middle of a breathtaking landscape, one of the most beautiful in Cancun and Riviera Maya. Enjoy this snorkeling paradise, with a variety of fun-filled activities. Glide

I rented unit 431 from Javier and Rosalba Uribe. The apartment was in good shape with no major problems other than some sewer smell in the upstairs shower and sugar ants. For the price I say it was a great deal. The location is perfect and the facilities are clean, safe, and nice looking. The ocean view was beautiful. I... More

I found the apartment to be quite comfortable and extremely well located. The whole complex is quite clean and offers lots of amenities, if you are looking for a quiet and clean place to stay this is it. The apartment includes pretty much every item you could need, yeah, it needed some better cleaning, but we are not that picky.

This has been a very relaxing vacation, mostly due to the beautiful location. The condo has two floors with the master bedroom separate from the rest of the living space. Both floors have an amazing view of the ocean and beach. The pools are refreshing after fun in the ocean. They are not heated but the water is plenty warm... More
