Recent Puerto Aventuras reviews
Wonderful relaxing vacation spot
"We spent a week at VDM 205 and had a fantastic time! It was very clean and the location was phenomenal! We have 2 children, ages 6 and 9 and it was perfect! Definitely the best beach in PA. The pools are very large and excellent for the kids as well as swimming laps (if someone wants to do that on vacation). The condo was very large and comfortable as there was a nice breeze. There is air conditioning but it wasn't needed. PA is a few minutes walk to enjoy shopping, interacting with dolphins and manatees, or people watching. The people are very friendly and this felt more like a small town than a tourist trap. We especially enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the crowds. We rented a car and enjoyed our trips to the grocery store and local cenotes. When we travel, we always try to get more of an authentic experience that includes trying to speak the language, interacting with locals, and enjoying the local wildlife. We especially enjoyed watching the agouti at the complex and were rewarded our last day there seeing a momma and her babies. As we had a car, we roamed up and down the coast and felt like we were staying in the best area for our needs. We enjoyed Akumal (saw lots of very large turtles) and Half Moon Bay (go to Buena Vida restauraunt-awesome) but felt the beach was too rocky for our small kids. That being said, some of the area at VDM is rocky but the rocks are smooth and there is a large area of just sand that is very shallow (due to the rock wall breakers). The actual sand on the beach is very smooth and great for kids to dig and create. The photos of the place are spot on. I agree with the other reviews that it is very secure and we always felt safe. The owner and property manager were great to work with-very helpful and accommodating. We definitely will return!"

"El apartamento estaba muy espacioso y en muy buenas condiciones. Tenía todo lo necesario para unas vacaciones. Las fotos no le hacen justicia. Muy bien equipado y limpio. Andrew, el gerente, estuvo muy al pendiente de nuestras necesidades y acudió a ayudarnos en el momento que lo necesitamos. Algo muy importante fue que el check in y el check out fue muy simple y rápido y no tuvimos que perder tiempo."

"We spent 7 nights at the condo. Perfect weather and great location. Perry is very easy to work with. We enjoyed both pools and the beach. The marina area has plenty of restaurants and shops. People living/staying at Chac Hal Al were very friendly and helpful. We used the collectivo, about a 10 minute walk, for transportation to attractions, very inexpensive and easy. We are looking forward to returning!"

"If you don't want the noise and crowds of the tourist area this is a great alternative. The Casita is clean, well kept and comfortable. The kitchen was adequate for making meals, full sized fridge, four burner gas cooker, just what was needed. The outside sitting area was comfortable, we ate a few meals outside. Internet access was very good considering we were so far out of the main area, we never had a problem checking our email etc.
You are close to Akumal, and a few other beaches , Puerto Aventuras has some great restaurants if you decide you don't want to cook. A grocery store is close by, the colonia of Puerto Aventuras has some great places to get BBQ chicken, so you have the best of everything close by.
The only negative is that there is no housekeeping offered, so if you stay more then a couple days (we were there almost 2 weeks) you need to supply your own cleaning products, toilet paper, garbage bags and dispose of your garbage somewhere off the property as there is no facilities for garbage disposal on the property.
All and all a great place,"
