Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Beautiful condo

    "My family of 5 stayed here last July for 10 days. I chose it because it appeared well appointed and that is important to me. It was very tastefully decorated. There was plenty of space for our entire family. The master bed was extremely comfortable. The condo itself, the grounds, and the gated community of playacar is just gorgeous. There are a few things that could have been improved upon. One, is that I think with such a spacious rooftop deck, a BBQ and perhaps a jacuzzi should be put in place in order to better enjoy relaxing dinners and time at the condo. Without these features, I'm sorry to say we didn't spend even one minute up on the deck. Pity too, seems like a great space that could be better utilized. Another suggestion is that a nice rug should be placed underneath the dining room area for the chairs. They did scrape loudly against the marble floor when moved which caused the downstairs neighbor to complain about us twice. We are not loud people. We tried our best to be respectful but the combination of the marble floors made it difficult and heavy dining chairs made it difficult. One other thing I will point out, although this is NO fault of the owner, is that the "10-30 minute" walk into town during the summer is brutal!!! I'm someone who enjoys an evening stroll so I was not put off by this idea at all. I was also aware that july would mean it would be very hot and humid. I truly didn't think this would bother me (it was 114 degrees when I left my home). However, I did not anticipate just how hot and humid this walk would be. It seemed to take forever. We'd then arrive sweaty to an open air resataurant (with no AC) to sweat some more, then, have the long walk back home. The same is true for beach access to the public beach. At least once you're there, you can cool off in the water. If you're there in the summer months, I highly recommend a rental car or getting taxies whe going into town or to the beach. We did make use of the beach chairs at the Reef club one day and bought the all inclusive package there another day which was great. All in all, I would most definitely stay here again as long as it wasn't during summer time. During summer, I'd unfortunately have to choose somewhere closer to restaurants with a more convenient beach access. But, if you're planning to be there in fall, winter, or spring, I can't imagine a nicer home with a better value."

  • PARADISE FOUND--Five Stars Plus

    "Wife: "Will you please write the review for Nah Yaxche?" Husband: "No." Wife: "Why not? I thought we all had a perfect time there." Husband: "We did--it is Paradise." Wife: "Well, then why don't you want to write a review?" Husband: "Because I don't want others to know about it. Anything I say will be so glowing that others will want to go there and therefore make it harder for us to book it when we can find time to go again, which I hope will be soon." Wife: "But don't you think..." Husband (knowing a few choice words about sharing--especially something really good--are justifiably on their way and so interrupting): "I don't think...I KNOW it is perfect. I KNOW it is Paradise." Wife: "O.K. I get your point. Then how about you go rent it for as many times as possible for the foreseeable future and then write a review." Husband: "Great idea!""

  • The pics don't do this justice...

    "We stayed here in March 2015, and loved every minute of it. I'll start by saying the picture of this place don't really do it justice. The rooms are spacious, the place is beautiful and there's everything you could need (except laundry), including blenders, a coffee maker, lots of dishes, a tonne of towels, etc. The location is stellar...it's right on 5th near the end of the strip in an area that sees some action, but is generally quiet by 12-1am. The AC works very well in all 3 rooms with separate controls and the two bathrooms were well cared for. Don't forget it has a huge balcony AND a rooftop terrace with whirlpool. The only downside - its a 3rd floor walk-up...not a big deal, but it feels worse after a draining day of doing nothing on the beach (which is at most a 6 minute walk away). I'll round this out by saying - Yes I would recommend this place. Also - the local property managers were friendly and very helpful!!!"

  • Lovely Casa - 5 stars

    "From the beginning Michele was wonderful to work with- very helpful and replied to questions quickly. The house is lovely and very well equipped. The location is terrific - quiet neighborhood with many friendly folks. We enjoyed the private backyard with a door to a jungle area filled with beautiful birds and interesting small animals. The casa is in easy driving distance to cenotes, Tulum ruins, several terrific beaches, Yal Ku lagoon, a monkey sanctuary, a number of good restaurants. shopping, etc. We had a grand time."

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.
