MARCH 12th to MARCH 18th, 2011, KANSAS CITY MISSOURI, USA. A year ago we came to Puerto Morelos to snorkel for a couple of days while vacationing in the Playa Del Carmen area. We fell in love with the Puerto Morelos village, so this year we looked for something close, less "Resort-like", so we could enjoy some R&R. Palma Real fit our desires perfectly! We traveled with our two boys (ages 7 and 8) and family friends (with children ages 3, 5 and 7) who stayed in the condo below us [on the first floor]. We enjoyed the convenience of being next to the pool and beach with the small children. Though our boys are great swimmers, they need supervision. We loved being able to quickly check on them at the pool or during sand building projects while we ran up to the room (we could check on them from any room). This leads us to the views! We know the value of beautiful views and close proximity to the beach - it is amazing! We are well aware that this would cost us at any resort - we just felt blessed to get to experience it! The condo was beautiful, very clean and well maintained. We did fret a little about all the white upholstery - but limited our boys to eating at the bar and covered the stools with towels. We used the condo Host and - well it is hard to even cover all he has done for us: Before we arrived, he emailed us twice, called 3 times; we felt in good hands even before we arrived. He provided round trip transportation & provisioning prior to arrival (he was perfect - he did not purchase "Nacho Doritos" for us because they are hot/spicy in Mexico - when we told him that it was exactly why our 8 yr old loves them, he showed up with a bag the next day and refused to take payment). All went smoothly, but we saw the Host nearly everyday, checking in to see what we needed. The day we & our family friends (9 in total), were preparing to go to the Crococun Zoo, the Host waited patiently and gave us a free ride to Crococun on his way into Cancun. Part of the reason we chose this condo over renting a home for our two families was the Condo Host was part of the package. He met and exceeded our expectations! We appreciate all he has done for us! The other reason we chose Palma Real was the lovely unit with amazing views and the ease of rental & pre-rental information. Thank you! Thank you! We hope to return soon!
