"This studio is just the right size for two people. It is clean and bright, but most of all it has the best balcony and inside view. You get a covered, private balcony with view of the ocean and the lagoon. At night you can see the beach lit up with private candlelight dinners, cruiseships sailing past and during the day watch the activity. But by activity it is not 'busy' at all by my standards. The beach isn't littered with lots of boats and sellers of various goods and activities. You'll see some parasailing and jet skiis. Not a lot. The beach also is nice and quiet. By that I mean you can walk down the entire beach and not hear 20 different beach bars playing various party music. There is one club next door that plays music from time to time. However I went during the Mexican spring school holiday and there were only spanish tourists staying at Cancun Plaza and nearby. That started to change by the end of the week. So perhaps the atmosphere will change.
I was very happy with having the airport transfers arranged for us. Especially when we landed. Oy! How confusing is it when you get out of the airport? Very. Everyone is trying to grab your luggage. I could firmly say "No. I have a Yellow Taxi" Then when we saw the sign with our names on it, it was a relief to have a reliable driver take us to the condo.
Fran is very personable and helpful during the entire process of booking and during the stay. She even arranged to have my hubby's birthday celebration even more special! Thanks so much Fran:)
The location of the condo was perfect for me. I do like nightlife like going to Coco Bongo, but I don't need to stay close to it. We hopped on and off the main bus constantly. It passes by all the time, and even in between stops the bus will honk at you to ask if you need them. Awesome! I enjoyed La Isla Mall the most and you can walk to it. Its only 4km or 3ish miles. Next to it is my favourite place for wine - La Europa, and next to that is a hidden gem La Fish Fritanga. It looks like a sidewalk take-away, yes it is. Just go down the stairs beside it and it leads you to the main restaurant situated on the beach. Inexpensive, simple food. Nice setting. Next to that is a cigar bar. You might not like cigars, but they also have a wonderful range of tequilas and best atmosphere. Its like stepping into Havana, Cuba. Tropical, old world, classy. Across the street from condo: '19.5km' (name of restaurant) best burgers ever! Huge! 'Navios' Restaurant for Romance."
