Amara Cancun condo description
Wake up to the sun glistening across the ocean, feel the seabreeze as you enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony, & if you are there the right time of the month, dim the lights (almost all lights have dimmers), and let the moon shining across the water enhance those romantic nights.
Amara Cancun is a newer complex with guarded, gated entrance, security 24/7, & walkways meandering thru the gardens leading to the BBQ grill area, 2 palapas, pool, & beach. Wonderful panaramic views of the Caribbean Sea, Isla Mujeres, & the coastline toward the Hotel Zone.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, second bedroom has a queen size bed (both of these rooms have built-in closets & drawers as well as night stands & dressers so storage for clothes is plentiful), there is a small 3rd room with bunk beds, plus a sleeper sofa in the TV room with a queen size pull out bed, so the condo will sleep 8 people very comfortably.
2 bedrooms have safes in the closet just in case you want that extra secure feeling for your jewelry, cash, passports, etc.
Attention Ladies: All 3 bathrooms have wall mounted hair dryers. The guest bath & 3rd bath have wall mounted, lighted, magnifying mirrors, & the master suite has a lighted magnifying mirror on the built-in makeup counter. All 3 baths are stocked with cotton rounds & Q-tips.
With both living room & TV room there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out, and there's a large dining room with long table & 8 chairs, 4 bar stools, & fully equiped kitchen, not just the bare essentials either. When we used to travel to different areas I learned to pack saran wrap, aluminum foil, zip lock bags, etc. I wanted others to enjoy the condo & have all these items already conveniently in place.
Each air conditioning unit has it's own remote control, & ceiling fans have individual remote controls. Master bedroom, 2nd bedroom, & TV room have wall mounted flat screen TV's. Master bedroom has Blue Ray DVD, TV room has Blue Ray DVD & Home Theatre with surround sound, & there's wireless internet.
Laundry room is stocked with laundry detergent, Oxy clean, bounce fabric softener sheets, spray starch, iron & ironing board, broom, vacuum cleaner, etc. All linens as well as beach towels are provided, so all you have to pack are your clothes & personal toiletries.
There are numerous upgrades and additions to this condo from the typical unit there. We wanted it to be very nice, comfortable, & feel like home for others to enjoy, as well as ourselves & family & friends that join us.
If you have your own car or rental car, there are 2 outside assigned parking spaces, & an additional assigned space in the covered garage, conveniently located at the foot of the stairs & just a few feet from the elevator. There are 2 carts next to the elevator to transport luggage & groceries from your car or taxi to the condo. Please be courteous to others & return the carts as soon as you are finished wth them.
Extra convenient store is across the street, Oxxo convenienet store and McDonalds (sorry, McDonalds closed) is a short walk up the street (about a block) next to the Terminal, where you can also take the ferry to Isla Mujeres.
There are a lot of shopping markets, such as Market 28 downtown, & several malls including Plaza Kukulcan, Plaza la Isla, Plaza Flamingo, and Plaza Forum in the Hotel Zone, & Las Americas on Tulum. Suparama by Wal-Mart grocery is just a few minutes away on Av. Bonampak, plus Wal-Mart, Sams, & Costco closer to downtown. Other large stores similar to Wal-mart are: Chedraui, Mega. & Soriana. All these have bakeries with a wide variety of fresh breads & pastries. You can get fresh Lobster & fish from the fisherman at the beach or across the street. When you want to take a break from cooking at the condo, there is an array of resturants all around Cancun to satisfy whatever type food you desire. Be sure to try some of the authentic Mexican restaurants, a couple are within walking distance, & most are reasonably priced. However, some of the American known restaurants are pricy.
If you are energetic & like day time adventure & nightlife, there are plenty of options such as: swimming with the Dolphins, Tulum, Xcaret, Chit enitza, Senor Frogs, Carlos N Charlies, Coco Bongos (we highly recommend if you like high energy, music, & shows every few minutes - we have taken several people & they are amazed- say it's much more than they expected).
We can give you information for you to arrange convenient transportation from & to the airport (additional fee). They will meet you at the airport, holding a sign with your name on it, then carry you in a private van straight to the condo. The company can also schedule tours & activities (additional fees) for your enjoyment.
We have a fabulous property manager that will meet you at the condo upon your arrival, give you keys, explain things about the condo, then meet with you again just before your departure. Cleaning before you arrive and after you depart is done at no charge to you. Also if you should like to have cleaning services during the week she will schedule a member of her team for a small fee (currently $35 which includes up to 4 hours of service). It is my understanding that you could include in this time frame for breakfast or lunch snacks to be prepared for you there at the condo. That's a deal.
So whether you want a vacation packed with activities, simply time to relax, or a balanced combination of both, Cancun & Amara has it all for you.

Being home away from home
We were two couples renting this place for two weeks. Prior to our arrival, I had many communications with the owner and she was extremely pleasant to deal with and she provided us with tons of information which was appreciated. Upon our arrival, the condo manager met us with a great smile. She is adorable and provided us with a visit of the condo. The condo is much nicer than the pictures shown on the website. About the condo: this place is spotless... very very clean. There are plenty of towels for the beach and for the shower. The kitchen is fully stocked with lots of dishes, pots and pans, glasses, cutlery, etc. It is very convenient to cook... The gas stove is great. The furniture is of great quality and if you rent, please treat this place as your own as the owners have put a lot of effort in providing us with fantastic accommodations. If you rent this place, you definitely need a car; otherwise you will find yourself being isolated. There are buses but they do not seem to go by frequently. The pool is great and most of the time, there were less than six people there which was great... it was almost like having our private pool. The beach is not so great as there is a lot of weeds. Since we had a car, we often went to the Forum and rented beach chairs where we would spend four or five hours. So even if you are a beach person, there are options if you have a car. There are games and puzzles... We left a 1000 pieces puzzle in the TV room... You are welcome to the challenge of doing it as it is not an easy one to do! All in all, we had a wonderful vacation and do not hesitate to rent this condo from a very lovely and helpful lady. Once again, if you rent this condo, consider this your home for the duration of your stay but keep it clean as you would your home. Think of the investment the owners have in their condo and if you do not want to clean while on vacation, a maid is available for doing it for you. Have a great vacation at La Amara.

Christmas in Paradise!!
My family just returned late last night from this condo resort and we had a great time! From the moment I contacted Susie about renting her condo, she has extended a gracious hand to help me plan my stay. I arranged transfers from the airport with Manuel per Susie's suggestion. He was on time, very helpful, and I would definitely contact him again when we go back. The condo is just as described by Susie. Very, very well stocked kitchen, lots of bathroom towels and wash cloths in each of the three bathrooms, and a lot of room for the seven of us (4 adults and 3 children ranging in age from 7-14). Personal washer and dryer allowed me to not back as much as I usually do. Kids loved the bunk bed area and pull out sofa bed was actually very comfortable! TV's in all the rooms. Wifi was very nice to have. Security walked the grounds day and night so we felt very safe. This is not a place if you are desiring the night life scene. This is a very relaxing and peaceful resort area. Located at the end of the hotel zone. We took a cab to purchase groceries (cost us around $5.00 plus tip each way). Man at the gate entrance helped us flag down a taxi. Went to Walmart first and I HIGHLY recommend going just for the experience!! Definitely not what I am used to but found it facinating!! We found Superama to be a comparable grocery store here in the states. We preferred to shop here. Took the ferry to Isla Mujeres one afternoon ($12 round trip I believe). Fun to shop at the little stores and huts. Had a delicious Mexican lunch while there. Never shopped downtown Cancun but wish we would have. Not a place I would go at night but during the day it looked fine. Beach was nice. Rocky but we could still get in and enjoy. We prefer the pool and it was very, very nice. Lots of beach chairs and some shade when you needed to get out of the sun. Shallow area in the pool so younger children can enjoy some freedom in the water! Grounds was very well maintained. Condo staff worked on the gardening every day while we were there. Also saw them cleaning a lot. New condos and from what I can see, very well maintained. Trust Susie and her suggestions! She was more than helpful and one of the most honest people I've rented from in a long time!

Lovely condo, great for families, in a quiet area. Grounds are lovely and we enjoyed the large pool. Gorgeous view. We also felt very safe here. Right next door to the ferry terminal which takes you to Isla Mujeres. We recommend renting a vehicle, as there is not much within walking distance of the condo. A couple of great restaurants near by in the downtown area, La Dolce Vita and La Habichuela, within a short car or taxi ride. Grocery stores are a short car or taxi ride as well. Susie the owner was wonderful, gave us lots of great information. Also Bego, the property manager was very helpful. If you are looking to be in a busy area with lots of night life, this is not for you, but if you are looking for a quiet gorgeous place, great for families, you will enjoy this place.
