"If you want top of the line accommodations, look no further. Zen del Mar is a beautiful villa where the owners have paid personal attention to every detail. Our group of ten family and friends (ages 25-65) very much enjoyed our week.
Architecturally Zen del Mar is marvelous. The photos are accurate but pictures cannot convey the overall feeling. It is visually appealing everywhere you look. It also works well for a crowd with plenty of privacy and space to spread out. The bedroom suites are equal in amenities, which was nice for our group of adults. Because the setting is so attractive, we ended up spending more time at the villa than I expected. Planned excursions, especially in the evenings, fell by the wayside in favor of enjoying drinks by the pool, al fresco dinners, and late nights under the stars. It is quite dark at Zen del Mar because of lighting regulations that help the endangered turtles. Being there during turtle nesting season was an additional pleasure.
The food provided by staff and the chef was excellent. We used the chef three times and I highly recommend him. If you are the least bit adventurous, request Yucatan specialties. He provided seafood stuffed chili rellenos in a cream sauce that were as elegant as you’d find anywhere. We also had cochinita pibil (barbequed pulled pork) served in the traditional way, a superb seafood ceviche and fajitas which will please any crowd.
Things that I often find to be lacking at ‘luxury’ rentals are done right at Zen del Mar - towels were large and plentiful; good quality bedding and sheets; nice ceramic dishware; good plumbing. The daytime staff was pleasant and unobtrusive. They were extremely responsive to requests and phoned the managers for anything that they couldn’t take care of themselves.
This is an extraordinary place that we will definitely return to."

"We had such an amazing stay here. The unit was beautifully designed, ocean front, peaceful, and just perfect. I loved the privacy this unit offers. It felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The staff on site was wonderful. The snorkeling just on the other side of the rocks was great and the water crystal clear. I can not wait to rent this unit again!!!! Puerto Adventurous is such a beautiful place and this Ground Floor unit was amazing."

"My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was perfect. Condo balcony overlooks the gulf for an incredible view and beautiful sunsets. The bedrooms were very nice - we only used the master, which also had a very nice balcony. Air conditioning worked great. There was snorkeling directly in front which we enjoyed. Pool area was never overly crowded.
There is restaurant on site for simple dishes and cold libations. We went into town and enjoyed dinner at a couple of local spots. Jeep rental done through Ernesto's - cheap, functional island beaters. Would definitely come back!!"

"No es la primera vez que viajo a playa del carmen, he rentado otros departamentos que sinceramente me han dejado mucho que desear, en una de mis últimas vistas vi los condominio de porto playa y me gustaron mucho, hace un par de semanas decidí regresar a playa con mi familia y hospedarme ahí el departamento fue la 221 tiene una maravillosa vista, una ubicación perfecta por que se encuentra a unos pasos de la playa y de la quinta avenida, te da un ambiente de privacidad que no te ofrecen otros lugares, el departamento es muy limpio y fresco tiene su propio jacuzzi con vista al mar y una palap. Es ideal para venir con tu familia o amigos.
Seguramente regresaré a playa como siempre y seguramente reservare nuevamente este departamento."
