"Our family of 6 rented Villa Kigner in August and we really loved the house and the community. The pools in the complex were terrific and the house has 7 bikes which we used a number of times to get to the beach. (the bikes aren't ideal for smaller kids).
The grounds were very nicely landscaped and well protected. Neigbouring units were all well-kept and quiet. We always felt very safe and secure. There are 2 groceries stores very close by, just outside of Playacar, and easy to get groceries at. Playacar has some small stores and restaurants as well that are easy to walk to.
It's a bit of a walk to Playa del Carmen and not that easy to find the beach, but we managed well. We had some great meals in town. We don't recommend eating on 5th avenue. We had a much better experience eating at local restaurants which were very easy to get to from the house.
The proximity to various activities around the Mayan Riviera is perfect. Snorkeling, ruins, cenotes. We had a great trip and were so glad we picked Villa Kigner to stay at."

"Just steps from the newer section of 5th Ave., this condo is in a perfect location. It is bigger than it looks and the roof top deck and pool are a plus. Kim, the property manager, was very helpful. I'm looking forward to going back and staying in this unit again."

"We vacationed at this condo for a adult family reunion. The condo was furnished beautifully, clean and fully stocked with all kitchen essentials and well maintained. The beach, pool and condo was oceanfront and beautiful. The condo was in walking distance to the town and we enjoyed many of the local restaurants away from 5th avenue. The staff of Xaman Ha was wonderful-both knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great experience and plan to return next year!"

"We chose Taninah for our wedding because it was so unique & private (how often do you get to rent an entire resort?!) We had a diverse group from grandparents to a 4 month old and in between with various comfort and budget levels. It was eco-luxury. Each cabana had a full bathroom with spa-like walk-in showers. Touring the place when we arrived was one delight after the other.
The staff was magic - invisible unless you needed anything. We would be hanging out & the mosquito nets were drawn, right next to me without me ever seeing them! I never caught them doing it although it was every night. But I never had trouble finding someone if I ever needed anything.
There are a few drawbacks - the biggest is not being directly on the beach and I was really worried about that because I *love* the beach. But, having your own private underground swimming grotto with water slide trumped the beach. Besides, we took a quick ride over to the beach two days- that was enough. The other drawback is that the food is served sort of family style - everyone gets essentially the same meal - in case you have any super finicky foodies. They were super accomodating about preferences - replacing seafood with chicken or even egg-less chocolate cake for the ones who didn't like eggs! Most of the food was very good and some was fantastic but if you're looking for every meal to be 5-star with adjectives on all your ingredients, you won't be happy. You do get to pick your menu (coconut shrimp was unbelievable). And daily fresh guacamole in the afternoon! Lastly, the resort is very eco-friendly. I actually loved this aspect but my convenience-trumps-all sis did notice some things, like the no resort-wide wifi (it was only at the main cabana) or composting toilet. I never noticed anything.
We chose Taninah as a splurge but it turned out to be very economical. Everyone stayed in their own spacious very private cabana, not a little hotel room. Anything we needed (including the alcohol), the staff got for us at Sam's Club or the grocery store, not resort prices. In the end, we spent much less (maybe half) than if we had gone to a typical resort (& we SEARCHED but never found one that met everyone's needs and budget). Taninah was the only one that was luxurious, economical, and convenient for families (no lugging gear when they move from trampoline to pool to playroom!).
Great place to bond - enough privacy to have your space but also spend time together.
GO! You won't regret it!"
