"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."

"This is our second time at Casa Gaviotas. We were very happy with our stay a couple of years ago but still impressed with how well kept the property is. The concierge service took care of all my special needs and the ground keeper was nice and helpful all the time (please thank Ernie and Marco). The house, the pool and green areas are on prime conditions. I love having the sea that close so going to the beach is totally hassle free for the kids. Reserving is easy since you deal directly with the owners and they give promptly responses to any inquires. I totally recommend this property for big groups/families. For any extra activities you can be picked up by tour guides right on the block corner. Unfortunately last three days we have bad weather but it was nice and cozy indoors. JJ"

"We stayed at this condo for 10 days in November, and we loved the location. The patio is huge and right near the pools and only steps from the ocean. We were out there every day. The condo was very roomy for six people, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The manager Freddy was a huge help, especially getting us to and from the airport. My only suggestion would be to spruce up the bathrooms a bit."
