My wife and I stayed in this will appointed studio during a week of scuba oriented vacation during November.
Overall the host was very fast and clear with responses and the apartment was as advertised. It's clean and fairly modern, with a strong AC, amazing view, and small but functional kitchen. It's a short 2-5 minute walk to all the local restaurants and far less to the beach and pool. In unit washer/dryer and large bathroom were nice. Bed was comfortable.
My only issue was that the cleaner didn't show was we expected and we had to inquire to find out they needed is to leave the key. Once we had that sorted out, the place was cleaned the next day which was nice.
I would want the kitchen to be just a little larger of I was planning to cook dinners, but it was fine for breakfasts and snacks. One nit is that the plates are not microwave safe, so having at least one glass/ceramic plate for reheating would be a good addition.
Would stay again.
Look no further....what's the point? As long as a studio condo will suit your needs - a LARGE studio condo that does NOT feel like a studio - you can't go wrong staying here. This condo has EVERYTHING, including a Property Manager half a block away.
Situated in the community rated the safest #1 community in all of the Riviera Maya, right beside Fatima Bay, enjoy swimming in the large pool or the ocean, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rent a bicycle and explore the area, or snorkel - baby turtle, barracuda, octupus, lots of fish even in the shallow water. Watched a lion fish swim from shore! Beautiful doves, herons, pelicans, egrets.
Incredible sunsets and sunrises - right from your own VERY private terrace. The propane bbq grill is fantastic for grilling your huge fresh shrimp or fish bought from the fishermen in the marina.
LOADS of restaurants/gift shops/large supermarket (easy to walk to), lots of touristy spots VERY close by. You are in the middle of everything, and yet you are in a community which is gated at the highway, surrounded by the friendliest people you could ever hope to meet. The only downside is - - - will you ever want to leave Paradise?
The owners are SUPER responsive and helpful - I cannot say enough about them. I have no hesitation in recommending this condo WHATSOEVER. Simply amazing...
This was our first time to rent a condo in Mexico and we'll do it all over again. The complex is peaceful and beautiful in so many ways - the view, the beach and the location.
The owner was so extremely helpful and answered all our questions. We did stop at the large grocery store located on the freeway before we entered the complex per the suggestion of the owner. And we're so glad we did. We did a combination of eating at the condo and making the very short walk to a number of restaurants - we especially loved The Pub and we ate their often.
Our condo had everything you'd need - coffee maker, blender, toaster, two-burner stove, all dishes and silverware, washer/dryer and books to read in case you forgot to bring one.
We'll return that's for sure!
First the location is perfect right on the water with beautiful views in 3 directions. The grounds are immaculate and the pools perfect. The first thing you want to do is sit in one of the loungers looking out at the ocean. Right in front of you is one of the best reefs you can snorkel and we went several times, playing with a sea turtle and seeing thousands of very colorful fish and coral right in front of the unit.
The condo was the perfect size for the 2 of us with a fabulous king bed. The bathroom has a large tiled shower which feels great after a swim at the beach. The condo has just been remodeled and I think we were the first to enjoy all it's comforts. It's so much better than staying at a hotel. Wi-fi, TV and DVD player all worked great. The kitchen was ample and we had most of our breakfasts and lunches there. There is a great grocery store right at the entrance to Puerto Aventuras so that helped, too. It's a smaller and safe community and everything is really within walking distance of the condo.
We walked the beach every day and enjoyed the beautiful sandy bay in Puerto and took side trips to Tulum and Xpu-Ha and enjoyed their beautiful beaches, too.
We rented a car, but I think you could easily get by without renting one.
The owner was in town and helped with several things and gave us some great recommendations on things to do. They went out of their way to make our stay perfect.
Maid service was every 3rd day and she was very thorough and kept it amazingly clean.
I think we will be back again in the future. We were spoiled and it was worth it.
