                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About: My wife and I stayed in this villa in 2012 and enjoyed it so much we bought it for our future retirement home . We live in Houston , Texas and honeymooned in cancun / playa many years ago and now own a little piece of paradise ! Once your there you will know exactly what we call paradise !

                              Why Villas del Mayab:
                              It just seems to be close to everything you could possibly need ! And it is . But please understand this is MEXICO and contrary to popular belief it's still a 3rd world country , if something breaks it's fixed when they want to , not when you want it ! I have no control over this and you need to understand and accept this ! It's very seldom but things do happen !

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              This villa is in the most well known private community in the Rivera Maya region .. PLAYACAR . Yet as a guest I must remind you this is MEXICO and water ,power , internet , cable ect . Are lsubject to outages beyond my control . Storms wind and just plain old wear and tear can at times cause an outage , and that being said , again this is Mexico and often times repairs are treated as MAÑANA TIME . Which in reality means when we get to it ! I just wanted to include this as an advisory , certainly not to suggest it's even a possibility during your stay , just advice for a coastal zone !
