Puerto Aventuras condo description
**Can rent as a 2Br/2.5Ba, please inquire**
This place has everything you are looking for. Read our five star reviews!
This huge, 3 BR ground floor unit is steps off the patio to the pool, and just a few more steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico! Ideally located in a small, private building of only eight units, it provides the ultimate combination of location, size, privacy, and value. It's a perfect place for a family vacation, or room to bring two! Relax on the patio and watch your family play in the pool or on the beach just a few steps away! Enjoy the spectacular view, swim and snorkel off the beach just steps out front, or it's just a short walk to the marina for fishing, shopping, dining, or to enjoy the dolphin experience. There's no need for a car!
A truly unique property! You flat out can't beat the location. We've put the time, money, and effort into appealing to those looking for the nicest, not just the cheapest place to stay. Why not treat yourself and your family?
Complete remodeling throughout was finished in April, 2013, so be one of the first to enjoy our new hacienda styled condo, with a beautiful brand new, full-sized kitchen, complete with granite counter tops, stained hardwood cabinets, new stainless built-in refrigerator and other appliances, and new plumbing and fixtures. Dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, water filter for purified water to ice maker and separate tap, and much more! All the comforts of home, but with a fantastic ocean view, even from the kitchen!
Move to the dining room and dine on a beautiful custom made table with seating for eight, along with furnishings complimenting the warm 'hacienda' style.
The glass patio doors slide into the wall and the Riviera Maya becomes your living room! Relax on the plush leather couches, kick your feet up on granite topped tables, and check out the latest Hi Def action from home on the DISH satellite system with DVR and new LED smart TV with internet connection. You can even use our Netflix account! Stay in touch with family and friends by calling back and forth to the United States for free on the Vonage phone, or surf the internet with WiFi. Fresh paint, new furniture, drapes, and much more!
Don't be taken by some of the other listings advertised as 'oceanfront'. Sure, their COMPLEX is oceanfront, but it's a several hundred yard walk from their unit to the beach! Check out our pictures! These are taken from 3 steps off our patio.
Bring plenty of guests! The condo sleeps 10 very comfortably, but be ready for the fight over the master bedroom. Pull the black out drapes and sleep late on the massive hardwood king bed topped with luxurious new mattress and 800 count sheets. Wake up to the gorgeous ocean view! There's a great large flat screen TV with satellite service, or watch a DVD on the Bluray. There's also ample storage with large closet, drawers, and cabinets, with a safe to store valuables during your stay. Separate thermostats and ceiling fans in each bedroom provide the ultimate in comfort. Double sinks and marble shower with glass door complete the master.
The guest rooms are massive, comfortably sleeping four to a room on new plush queen mattresses, with large closets in each guest room and plenty of storage space. There's room to spare! Each also has flat screen TVs with satellite and DVD/ Bluray players. The sink/ ready area is separated from the toilet and marble tiled shower for maximum convenience. There's also a shared patio between the guest rooms.
There's just too much to list, but we wouldn't want to forget the convenient laundry room with washer and dryer, great patio seating, and outdoor BBQ grill.
Puerto Aventuras is the perfect destination for your next trip to the Mayan Riviera. Enjoy the fantastic year round sunny climate, stunning turquoise Caribbean waters, and white sandy beaches. You can't beat the location in the community and proximity to the beach, much less find a condo so nicely done. Look forward to speaking to you about your stay!

- The private, gated community of Puerto Aventuras is located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, just 10 miles south of Playa del Carmen and about a 50 minute drive from the Cancun airport. Built around a fantastic marina, enjoy the seclusion of this quaint little resort, away from the overbuilding in Cancun and Playa. Plenty of activities within walking distance from the condo! Charter a boat to go after sailfish, swim with the dolphins and seals raised in the marina, snorkel or scuba right off the second largest coral reef in the world, play golf or tennis in the neighborhood, or drive a short distance to some spectacular courses, like the PGA Tour tournament course, Mayacoba. Enjoy spa services, stroll along the shops and restaurants, or just kick back and enjoy one of the best beaches in the world, all right outside the door! The ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum and world famous snorkel site, Xel Ha, are 35 minutes away. Take the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel, considered one of the best diving sites in the world! There are several cenotes (underground caves and rivers) to explore, snorkel, or scuba dive through, within a few minutes by car. The wonderful ecological theme park of Xcaret is a 15 minute drive, with various local wildlife, equestrian show, butterfly exhibit, and much more. Don't miss the spectacular nighttime extravaganza! Zip-line through the trees, ride ATVs through underground caves, or paddle kayaks through underground streams at Xplor, also 15 minutes away. Just outside the resort is the Lapis jewelry outlet. Don't miss lunch at La Buena Vida in Akumal (if there ever was a site for a Corona Beer commercial!). Although there are plenty of great restaurants, shops, and bars to enjoy within a short walk from the condo, if your looking for a little more excitement, taxis are readily available for a quick 15 minute ride to Playa del Carmen for an endless supply of dining, shopping along 5th Avenue, and nightlife. You can't find a better location in the Mayan Riviera!...moreless

What an awsome place!!!
What an awsome place!!!
We had a great stay in this beautiful condo. Everything was top notch. Puerto Aventuras is a terrific place to stay on the Riviera Maya. Great diving, golf and tennis available within easy walking distance. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and incredible gelato at Jessie's Gelato. Highly recommend this property. Centrally located to Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

Owner response: Thanks for the great review! Puerto Aventuras really is the best place to stay in the Riviera Maya. You can't beat the centralized location, close to everything you go down there for, beaches, diving, snorkeling, fishing, golf, etc. We're glad you appreciated the effort we made to make our place "top notch"! Thanks again. You and your family are welcome any time.
Amazing place to stay with a family!
Amazing place to stay with a family!
This condo is absolutely perfect! My family and I have taken several trips to the Riviera Maya, this being our second stay in Puerto Aventuras and this was by far the best time we have had! All-Inclusive resorts get crowded and have become boring as the kids have gotten older, and this condo offered so many options that kept us busy the whole week! We spent a lot of time within the guarded and gated community just checking out everything to do in PA, from swimming and snorkeling just steps from the back door (you can actually rent snorkeling gear right in the community's main retail area). to watching the dolphins perform, and dining at all the great little restaurants in the area. We rented a golf cart to get around very quickly and easily. We also rented a car right outside the community a few times and drove to some of the main attractions close to PA such as the Mayan ruins in Tulum and shopping at Playa del Carmen. There are also some fantastic cenotes with great snorkeling opportunities just 5 minutes down the road. The owner left a very detailed list and was very helpful in giving suggestions for things to do during our stay. He even told us about a small out of the way restaurant to try that ended up being one of the best meals we had the entire time we were there. You can tell he has paid attention to making sure every detail has been taken care of to ensure we had everything we needed like ample towels for the beach and a well supplied kitchen. If you do want or need to go out, everything is very easy to access from the condo, and there is a grocery store just up the road a bit, making it convenient and easy to fix meals at the condo for those days you just want to stay on the beach and be bums all day. My boyfriend actually proposed to me the very first night we were there so this was definitely a vacation I will never forget! Can't wait to come back for our honeymoon!

Owner response: Jillian, Congratulations on your engagement! I'm not sure we can take any credit for it, but I agree, it's a great place to get engaged. We'd love to have you back for the honeymoon or how about the wedding? I'm glad you enjoyed some of our suggestions on activities and restaurants. Tell all your friends and good luck!

We had a fabulous time at this property! Everything in the condo looks brand new and top of the line. The pictures do not do it justice. Everything is clean and new - it looks like a model/show house! It is literally steps to the beach. The view of the ocean from both the master and the living room of this condo was fabulous - I can't even imagine it being any better! And if you have teenagers, there is a huge back balcony/patio for them to hang out on as well! We really loved staying on the ground floor. It was so easy to grab our gear and just walk right out the sliding glass doors and take 5 steps to the pool or 15 steps right past the pool and onto the beach! The ocean can't be more than 30 steps. No more lugging stuff up and down elevators or stairs! My kids spent hours upon hours snorkeling in the ocean right in front of the condo. Plenty of fish and marine life to see right there. The water was practically like glass most of the time we were there and you had to swim pretty far out before it got very deep at all so I wasn't ever worried about the kids swimming in the ocean. Don't waste your money on a snorkeling trip when you can see it all right there! When they were not snorkeling, the kids were in the pool (very clean) and when they needed some time indoors the owners had board games available to keep the kids busy! The property is very low occupancy; I believe it is only 8 units or so. It was not overcrowded AT ALL. It often felt like we had the whole complex to ourselves! The people we did meet all seemed to be owners and were super friendly and nice. The complex is inside a gated community where you have to stop at a guard gate to get in and to get out and we felt very safe everywhere. There are many restaurants within walking distance at the marina where there is also a huge complex where you can swim with the dolphins and watch seal shows (a definite must for the whole family!). We walked everywhere we wanted to go within Puerto Aventuras. We even chartered a fishing boat right out of the marina. A big grocery store is outside the gates about a third of a mile down the road. It made it so easy to run there to get whatever we needed (I'm always sending the hubby out to pick up some ingredient I have forgotten for dinner). I love to cook and the kitchen has very nice cookware and anything you could possibly need to whip up a great meal. Not a cook? Walk to eat! Bottom line: quit looking elsewhere! It can't get any better than this place.

This condo is Fantastic!!! Just steps from the pool and beach. The condo was perfect with beautiful ocean views! Five star all the way! The kitchen was amazing, beautiful granite and stainless steel appliances and equipped with everythng you could possible need!! The condo was very clean and well maintained. We loved the beds!! We had everything we could possibly need right at our fingertips. We loved the area so many great restaraunts and shops and the dolphins are great!! We have 2 teenages and their friends and we felt so safe letting them venture down the beach and explore the area. The owner was especially nice and easy to work with. We will definitely stay at this condo again! It totally exceeded our expectations!!!

Owner response: Jeanne, I'm so pleased you found everything to your liking! I really think it's got one of the nicest views around, being RIGHT ON THE BEACH! There are really very few comparable units in the entire area, with the view, proximity to the beach and pool, large size and ground floor. I'm glad you felt it was so comfortable. We never have tried to be the cheapest, just the nicest! Y'all were great people and we'd love for you to come back and stay any time. Tell your friends! Thanks again, Stephen
Extremely nice place right on the ocean with a fantastic view! The pictures on the website really don't do it justice. Very well decorated and appointed with everything we wanted. Kitchen was one of the best in any condo we've even stayed in. It was wonderful being on the ground floor and so close to the pool. We just sat on the patio watching the kids play in the pool, beach, and ocean. The kids can't wait to go back again and neither can we. Would definitely recommend!

About the owner: Buenos Dia, from Dallas, where we spend our time in between enjoying the sweet life down in Puerto Aventuras. My wife and I have vacationed down in the Riviera Maya every year since staying in Playa del Carmen for our honeymoon almost 20 years ago! It was a sleepy little fishing town back then, with only three large hotels hotels. My, how it has grown (really, too much at this point). We've been bringing our daughters down since they were about 7 months old, and can't wait for the next chapters of our lives, dreaming of early retirement, entertaining family and friends, and some day playing with grandkids on the beach!
Why the Owner Chose Puerto Aventuras:
We've been searching for the perfect vacation place in Mexico for years, from north of Cancun to south of Tulum. Although we've always loved Playa, it has just grown too big over the last 20 years. We found Puerto Aventuras about five years ago and fell in love with the quaint, relaxing community. Location, location, location! In almost 20 years of vacationing and searching for our own place, this is one of the largest units we have ever been in, and just steps off a postcard quality beach! No fighting the other guests in a massive complex for a spot by the pool. There's only 8 units! Great kitchen, huge bedrooms, ample space, and walk everywhere. Puerto Aventuras is just a spectacular site to own a home and to spend time on vacation! You'll see it immediately, once driving through the security gate surrounding the entire community. Beautifully landscaped, the winding streets meander through the small resort. Don't be surprised if your the only one on the road, except for some kids driving around golf carts. This community has it all, from the fishing and sailing opportunities at the marina , dolphin discovery, beautiful beach, fantastic snorkeling, golf and tennis, restaurants, and an endless supply of adventure and activities just minutes away. You just can't beat the location of PA, or our home there.
