Recent Quintana Roo reviews

  • very good apartment, just a bit distent from the 5 avenida

    "Excellent apartment, very well equipped. Tools, beds, washing machine, dryer and everything. The pool is very good, there is a parking right next door, overall the compound is gorgeous and well maintained. Simone the owner is very nice and helpful and the property manager is very helpful and very attentive. We were two adults and three children and the apartment was more than enough. The only drawback is the distance from the center of the apartment Playa del Carmen, you can not walk with the children, have a car or take a taxi. There are always taxis and theres no problem getting one."

  • Wonderful vacation in Paradise

    "We stayed at Casa Catarina for a week in February and we had a fabulous vacation. My sister and her family and our friends and their family stayed in Villa Martini just down the path from us. In total our group was 13 people (6 adults and 7 young children, all under age 6). The home was huge and very comfortable for our family (we did not even use the upper level for sleeping). We loved having the kids pool as well as the regular pool for our kids to spend hours playing in, and the beach right adjacent to the pool was great for the kids as well as for us to watch them. We took everyone to Chankanaab park to swim with the dolphins and manatees, which the kids thought was fantastic. We spent a day at Chen Rio beach on the other side of the island and it was absolutely beautiful. Amber, Vanessa and Rodrigo also arranged a for a boat to take us out on the water one day where we were able to walk around on sand dunes and do some snorkeling in absolutely beautiful water. Watching the breath-taking sunsets over the water every evening was definitely a highlight and something that we looked forward to every evening. We rented the SUV from the homeowner and found that it was a great decision as it was reasonably priced and we liked the convenience of having Vanessa pick us up in it at the airport. Vanessa, Amber and Rodrigo were always available to assist us with anything we needed. They were very knowledgeable about everything on the island; anything you want to do they will arrange for you. Advice for future visitors would be to be aware of the fact that credit cards are not widely accepted, basically anywhere on the island (including Your Cozumel), so it is important to come with cash. We found that even the bank machines were often unreliable. It was a bit of a hassle to have to drive in every day or two to withdraw more money, and we did not love having to carry large quantities of cash on us every day (although it is important to say that we always felt safe on the island and in our gated community). Additionally, it is good to stock up on food and any other amenities you may need when you get there (or get Vanessa to get them for you prior to arriving), as it was a bit of a drive into the supermarket (and more of a hassle because we did have young children in our group). Overall we loved our vacation and found that for us, it was a great place to visit as a family. We are already planning to come back."

  • Great condo, great location, perfect vacation

    "Our family of four (2 adults, kids ages 21 & 16) just returned from almost a week in Shawn's condo. It was an awesome place to stay; the condo was furnished, comfortable and clean, plenty of bath and beach towels. The beach was very clean, very few rocks (we'd taken beach shoes-didn't need them). The location was the absolute best. We walked to 5th Avenue almost every morning and evening, we had dinner on 5th Ave most nights (check out Mi Pueblo-yumminess!). Also walked to Walmart for food, an easy walk. Shawn was great to deal with and so helpful, very quick responses to any inquiries we had. Condo management staff also accessible for a couple minor problems (swiftly resolved). Maid service was a luxury we've never had before. Condo staff was so very friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had. The only down side to the location is there is a bar close by on the beach that had music going until the wee hours, so we were not able to turn off the AC at night to listen to the sound of the surf at night (just something we love to do on beach vacations). There is also construction happening right next to the condo, but we weren't inside during the day, so it wasn't an issue for us. On the upside, the condo is very soundproof, so noise was not an issue with doors/windows closed and AC running. We used Amigo Tours to visit Xichen Itza, highly recommend them, you are in and out before the crowd and heat of the day descend upon this magnificent place. We used the transfer/shuttle company that Shawn provided information on for transport to/from the airport, it was nice to have our own van with AC in the hustle and bustle of coming and going. This was our first time to Mexico and couldn't have asked for more. We cannot recommend El Faro and Shawn's condo enough! Not sure if we'll ever make it back, but we'd stay here again without hesitation!"
