"We've been going to Cancun, staying at Villas Marlin for about 20 years. Due to retirement, property sales, etc we've stayed at multiple different condos. This was by far the BEST! Aileen's condo was not only spacious (twice as much room as typical Villas Marlin), clean, and very comfortable, it was steps from the pool and the beach. My husband and I are in our early 50's and traveled with his parents who are in their late 70's. There was more than enough space for the 4 of us to "live" together for 2 weeks. The location couldn't be better. Cancun's best shopping is either across the street or 2 blocks away. Kukulcan Mall (right behind Villas Marlin) has a new grocery store that is awesome! A couple miles down the road (north) there is a high end grocery store that rivals the best gourmet stores in the states. There are multiple GREAT restaurants within walking distance. This is the first year we didn't rent a car and we never missed it. Make sure you go to Lima (literally across the street) and La Habituela (right next door to Lima). Best coconut shrimp is at Fish Fritanga (next door north of La Habituela). Aileen's condo afforded maximum spoilage at a bargain price. Ledy is simply the best. If I could take home one souvenir, it would have been her! She kept the condo absolutely spotless and even did our laundry! She offered to cook for us and while her English is somewhat limited, there was never any problem conversing with her. The poolside grill was awesome too-many days we'd skip lunch at the condo and just order guacamole and a pina colada for less than 7.00 US! The staff at Villas Marlin was always friendly and courteous. I felt like they welcomed us as though we were owners. Aileen was awesome to do business with. She was timely with her responses, great at answering questions, and even emailed to make sure we got in OK and to see if we were happy or if there was anything she could do for us. We will definitely be back, and we will definitely be renting from Aileen again. If you have a choice-rent this condo! You won't regret it!"

"Am on day 3 of our stay and can't say enough good things about our villa and dealings with mike marino. To summarize: very clean unit, well equiped, great location and straight goods from the owner . The layout is great if youre bringing a couple kids (they essentially have their own floor) . Theres a mall and grocery stoor across the street and the unit has every utensil you'll need. The ultimate review is to say you'll rent again-and I will!!"

"My husband and I spent a week here in July and found this condo at Cancun Plaza exactly as advertised. It is a studio, but they have maximized the space. The pool was comfortable, the ocean a few steps away and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a bus to go to town. Once we went to the store, using the microwave and hot plate, we were able to prepare breakfast and lunch in the condo every day to save money. The restaurant is OK (not great) in a pinch and there is a burger place across the street that is pretty good (shrimp fajitas were great). Late at night we were able to watch (quietly, in the dark, SEVERAL YARDS away, no flash photography AT ALL) Sea Turtles come up on land, drag themselves inland, bury themselves, lay eggs, dig out and crawl back into the sea (about a three hour process). It was amazing. There are two convenience stores for water and sodas and snacks. Carmen (the on site manager) was amazing and super responsive and helpful and the homeowners answered all of our questions right away. There is no smoking, feather pillows or pets allowed here so I did not have any allergy problems. I would just recommend bringing your own detergent if you are hyper-sensitive and will need to do laundry. All in all, great experience. Would recommend to anyone who does not mind being the only Americans on site (it was actually quite nice)."
