"We spent a week at Villas Marlin and had a great vacation. We spent most of our days at the beach and the swimming pools. Great surf, crystal clear water, and soft white sand beaches. Our 2 kids (age 6 & 4) loved the surf but they are on the more adventurous side and love the water. We were fine without a car. Did one big shopping trip at Walmart via the bus ( about 1/2 hour) on our first day and then picked up other grocery items almost on a daily basis in the grocery store in the mall literally right across the rear drive of Villas Marlin. Very convenient. We did a couple excursions during the week. A trip to Puerto Morelos ($25-$30 cab ride each way) to go snorkeling on protected coral reefs (the kids did great - 1st time snorkeling) and a day trip to Isla mujeres - rented a golf cart for the day to get around the island. A number of good local restaurants within walking distance and can take bus or cab to the busier hotel areas. Everything was very convenient. My only wish was that it was more walkable. Restaurants along a very busy road which made me a little nervous with little kids. But we got along fine. Overall a very good vacation and Unit 324 was very nice, comfortable, well maintained and updated with a great kitchen and a great view of the ocean, beach, and pools."
