"I stayed in the condo for one week. Compared to other lodging that I've experienced in Mexico, it was by far the best. There are lots of things to do nearby; enjoyed the ruins at Tulum. The snorkeling, swimming and fishing were all great. The condo was very clean and comfortable. I'm looking forward to staying there again soon."

"Great condo in a little piece of heaven, this is our 3rd trip back to Puerto Aventuras. This is the 1st time we have rented from owners we normally rent condo's that are time shares & what a difference.The owners have everything you can imagine, a well stocked kitchen anything we used we just topped up. Coolers every shape & size floaters for the pool, it was well stocked with everything that we needed. We never stay at the same condo twice but we will give it some serious thought. Thanks for a great vacation."

"Casa del Sol Naciente is everything in it's description and more. Relax by the pool, swim in the Sea or read on a swinging bed in the shade while the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep. The accommodations were wonderful. Everyone had a great room. Lots of space for yourself, with great areas to congregate with the whole group. We cooked several meals in and found the kitchen very well equipped. We enjoyed a welcoming Margarita on arrival our first day. We also enjoyed freshly made Guacamole and Salsa every afternoon! The housekeeper 'Yennie' kept the Villa tidy and made sure we had everything we needed. The grounds were maintained daily, as well, with the pool cleaned and the sand raked of the never-ending leaves from the beautiful landscaping. The Villa is close enough to so much, allowing you to explore the lagoons, Cenotes, towns and restaurants of the area. This was much nicer than staying in a large resort or hotel. It was more like visiting a friend for the week. Thanks Udi and Liz for creating such a wonderful place. It was our best trip ever to the Riviera Maya and one we hope to repeat very soon."

"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."
