"We spent a week down in Cancun over Easter break. It was nice. The weather was perfect, the pool was clean and nice and the condo was very functional. The beach was nice, but there was not much of a real swimming area, the water is like knee deep, and there was lots of seaweed. There were some issues with the nightly noise. The party boat, The Dancer, came in at 10 PM, went back out at 12 and back in at 3:00 am. It was a floating nightclub! It was extremely loud and disrupted every night for us. Lucky our baby slept through it. There were other people visiting as well, and everyone had the same feelings about the Dancer. Some of the residents that spend months down there were used to it, but for us, it was a rude awakening. Because of this, we needed to keep our windows and doors closed at night, and led to a $60 electric bill at the end of the week that was unexpected. I was also a little upset about paying a $20 paypal fee to get my deposit back. There are other outlets to use for free. We really did have a great time, and the beach was safe, and quiet during the day. The local food around was cheap and good, and the buses come every two minutes right outside the condo. Nancy, Laura and Reuben were great to deal with, but I wanted to bring the attention of the noise up, it was a real annoyance."

Great Location, Great Condo Apt., Great Property Mgr. !!
"We have been renting units in Villas Marlin for 2-6 weeks every year for the past several years. This is the best unit we have ever rented. The location within the condo complex is perfect, the unit is very well furnished, particularly the kitchen, which was fantastic and when we arrived we found the unit to be very clean. Yania, the property manager, was excellent to deal with and answered our questions and dealt with a few minor issues very promptly and professionally."

"We thought this place seemed too good to be true when we saw the price. It is for real though! I have been to the Cancun area several times and this was by far my favorite visit. The area is central to everything, but so quiet and laid back. In March we didn't see any drunk college kids, which is pretty unusual in the Cancun area!
The condo itself is really nice, and the people there are very friendly. Natalia was so patient and helpful with all our questions. If you like the glamorous resort experience, this may not be your thing, but if you want an authentic experience in a wonderful neighborhood, this may be it. Great beach view, and the pools were very clean and nice. The grounds are immaculate and the workers there are helpful if you need anything from them. Great ventilation system in the condo meant we could leave the windows open and only used the AC one night.
We loved walking down to take the ferry to Isla Mujeres (gorgeous beaches there) and then stopping at one of the local restaurants to pick up dinner on the way home. The people in these restaurants are so friendly and pleasant. They look a little divey but be adventurous - their food is great and the prices cannot be beat.
We definitely plan to return to this place as it was an incredible value and a really wonderful experience!"

"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!"
