Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera property reviews

  • Quiet and spacious

    "We rented for the holidays for 4 adults and 3 kids. The condo complex in which this apartment is located is beautiful and in a quiet residential area. The apartment is simply furnished with just the basics but very spacious and clean. The rooms and corridors are large. There are excellent views from the second level and plenty of light and breeze. Requires transport to the main town by taxi but the fares are reasonable. The Melia all inclusive resort is walking distance but the restaurants are not open to outside guests perhaps during peak season. The golf course across the street has a small cafe but the food was passable. We bought some groceries to make basic breakfast in the nicely stocked kitchen. There is only one small TV which is perhaps due for an upgrade. The wifi was excellent and was a boon to us traveling from the US even allowing us to facetime. The maid only came on alternate days but was efficient. The local real estate agent was very responsive and helpful and we were provided with a local cellphone that came in handy several times. Our stay went without a hitch and was very enjoyable."

  • Amazing week at Casa Susana

    "We stayed at Casa Susana from Feb 7-14, 2014. My wife and I have been to Mexico several times and had always done all inclusive resorts. We decided this year to rent a house on the recommendation of a friend. Casa Susana did not disappoint, the house is beautiful the pool is amazing and the walk to the beach is only a short walk. Your close to town so it's only a short walk. I travel a lot for work and I'm pretty picky when it comes to accommodations, this house is 5 star all the way, exactly as advertised."

  • Happy Family

    "We are a family of six and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the condo turned out to be. The pictures don't do it justice! We would have been happy to just stay there and live there! :) Besides the lovely layout, ceiling fans AND air conditioning, beautiful decor, outdoor patio, pool, and incredible view of the sea, we felt so private and safe! Although there seemed to be other inhabitants of the condos, we didn't see much of them! We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves! The on-sight managers, Jose and Nellie, were so easily accessible and helpful. Norma, the owner, was kind and easy to work with. We had access to wifi for free, inside and out on the patio by the pool, which we later found was quite a rarity. We were also able to flush toilet paper, which Americans are quite attached to! On other parts of the island, this is a no no...a hard adjustment :) The reasons I don't give it a 5 out of 5 are as follows: 1. There was some construction happening next door which caused quite a bit of noise. Naturally they want to develop this lovely place and this is outside of the control of the owners. When there weren't any workers, it was quite quiet 2. There is some standing water in the showers and I mentioned this to the owner so I imagine it will be taken care of 3. We also mentioned that it would be nice to have dish soap so that we are ready to roll upon arrival. We went to the grocery store to purchase some for under $1, so it wasn't a big deal. We also bought fruit there and made delicious smoothies in the blender provided in the fully equipped kitchen! So, not much! It's a great price for the value. Although it is on the opposite side as the beloved north beach, is very close to Garrafon Castilla Beach Club, where you can rent snorkeling gear for $8 and just dive right in! I highly recommend this, as it was one of my favorite activities, as well as the most economical. This is not to be confused with the much more expensive option, Garrafon National Park. There is also a Women's Beading Coop not far from the condo where you can watch the women make amazing designs, and buy them at a fair price. The condo is also on the same side of the island as the turtle and shark diving, which we didn't do...next time! Beware, the taxis are more expensive than they are advertised on the Isla Mujeres website. Prepare to pay about $9 to cross the island, and $7 to go the the Centro (down town). All around, this condo is a great choice! Enjoy!"

  • Great vacation and beautiful condo!

    "We had a wonderful vacation in 295545 - such a lovely home - all was perfect! The condo is very well appointed with everything that we could need. And, the lcoation is wonderful! This 2 bedroom unit is spacious and very upscale. The owner has made her home so accommodating - and the large fluffy beach towels, very complete kitchen and patio with comfortable furniture. The beach is uncrowded with nice lounge chairs and big palm trees to provide plenty of shade. There is pretty good snorkeling at the pier right next door. And, we did a snorkeling tour that picked us up at that pier - very convenient. Veronica, the housekeeper is amazing! She cooked us two meals - YUM! And, such a delightful person. Luis, the property manager was very hospitable and helpful ( especially letting us know how to take care of our parking ticket!). We loved Cozumel and are planning on coming back next year. You do need to rent a car as the town is about 15 minutes north. Also, there is no beach bar at the complex (there are beach clubs very close by) so it is a good idea to stock up with some groceries at the Mega on your way from the airport. We feel fortunate that we ended up choosing this condo complex - I think it is one of the nicest places to stay on the island. By the way, had some great dinners out including Guidos, Kinta and Kondessa."

Yucatan, Mayan Riviera Travel Tips

Mayan Resorts Along the Yucatan Peninsula

On your next trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, consider traveling to Mayan resorts. The Mayan Riviera in Mexico is one of the more fascinating destination spots in the world. You have tropical beaches, ancient ruins, and a myriad of marine and wildlife, all steps away from Yucatan vacation rentals. The Mayan Riviera is more than one city; in fact, it is about 11 cities. Popular destinations for Yucatan villas include but are not limited to Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Akumal, Tulum, Puerto Aventuras, Puerto Morelos, and Xpu-Ha.

Forested Scenery near Yucatan Vacation Rentals

As you drive along route 307 to reach Yucatan vacation rentals, you will discover the land is flat and the scenery is akin to a flat forested region much like Canada or Europe. Interspersed along the highway are boulder-laden cliffs that will lead you down to clean, white sandy beaches. Once you arrive at Yucatan villas, you are able to sit on a private beach all day watching the waves roll in or playing in the surf. Playa del Carmen is the most popular Mayan Riviera destination where plenty of Mayan resorts await.

Yucatan Villas by Fifth Avenue

If you elect to stay in Playa del Carmen rather than other Mayan Riviera destinations, you can walk down Fifth Avenue on the local strip and pet wild lions, play with boa constrictors, or watch Maruichi bands. Many of the Yucatan villas are situated on the strip to provide you the most active nightlife and access to the beautiful beach. Cruises dock close to the strip, filling up the town with new faces each Tuesday and Thursday. Because so many cruise ships dock there, you'll find many jewelry stores, arts and crafts stores, and other retail shops that offer wonderful deals.

Mayan Resorts Provide Whale Shark Sightings

Water sports are the most attractive attractions in the Mayan Riviera. From Mayan resorts, you can head out to sea on a deep sea fishing tour or scuba dive boat. If you truly want a diving experience you will never forget, make sure the dive boat is heading to the known locations where the whale sharks hang out. Whale sharks can be very elusive creatures but dive boats in the Mayan Riviera have managed to find areas where they tend to hang out. At the end of your day with water sports, it may be time to head back to your Yucatan vacation rentals for a home-cooked Mexican meal.
