  • Beautiful Home!

    "We arrived at Casa Alcazar in the early evening to a wonderful selection of Mexican snacks and beverages. It was truly a pleasure after a long flight. This home is perfect for family and friend get togethers. The furnishings and beautiful artwork was an unexpected treat. Our group of 6 had a most relaxing and private space to unwind in. Ulla was there to greet an give an awesome tour of the property and beach area. Teresa provided a wonderful authentic Mexican dinner one night, and Ruth did a spectacular job of housekeeping. We wandered the beach and town through the day and the town every evening, that we were not cooking on the lovely patio. Oscar did a splendid job of airport transfer and escorting a great day snorkeling and swimming. The rooftop patio was private, relaxing and with amazing views. We have been to Playa de Carmen before but never has anything felt so much like our own home. Thank you Bernie for a wonderful vacation spot, hope to be back soon."

  • Great condo in Playacar, Playa del Carmen.

    "This is the perfect location to explore the Mayan Riviera. Playacar is a quiet , private cul de sac of 16 homes with a beautiful pool. One of the best beaches in Mexico is just a 15 minute walk away and the lively town of Playa is a 5 minute taxi ride.The area is safe and well lit for walking back from town at night.The condo is well equipped and Chris -the manager is on site to give advice or assistance if needed.We did not rent a car and did not need one -taxis are cheap and always available and the Ado buses are comfortable and reasonable for longer trips. We spent 6 weeks here this year and hope to rent the same property next year."

  • Perfect Vacation Villa and an Incredible Value

    "Just returned from a week-plus stay and I write this review to confirm it is everything described in the listing and so much more. The Villa is certainly clean, well-maintained and the Veronique, the owner, provides guests with all the information needed to make this not only a stress free rental but offered us specific advice that allowed us to tailor our stay to our preferences. Our party was two adults and two teenagers with a preference to relax and hang out in a comfortable place. Once we stocked up on groceries at the local supermarket we found little reason to run around the Yucatan, we were already enjoying a huge property with 3 beds, 4 baths, very solid wifi, multiple hammocks, a private Palapa, a massive common area with tons of seating and loungers only steps from the white sand beach and calm waters protected by the world's second largest barrier reef. So many things are just right about this place, a few examples: the beds all face the ocean (small but important detail), massive windows for views to no end, outdoor shower for fast transitions, two sea kayaks for your unlimited and private use, outdoor gas BBQ to grill pungent food, windows in showers, tons of natural woods and stones which make the property feel tranquil and moderate the temps, lovely landscaping...the list goes on. I would recommend this property because the fact is we got excellent value and the property and effort put forth by the owner and the caretakers merit a thriving business. Just don't book it when I want to return, deal? Obviously when you book something like this from the states you naturally worry to varying degrees that something might go wrong or that you must investigate the rental in due diligence to make sure you don't arrive to find an empty lot or a locked door. The main thing I can offer you in this review is that will not happen, the place is legitimate, well-managed and its everything we wanted to enjoy a large comfortable Villa in a really interesting area."

  • Home Away From Home

    "I will begin my review by saying that our stay was perfect and we will be returning to the condo in the future! The unit is spacious, comfortable and well stocked – just as advertised. The beds and linens are very comfortable and the kitchen has plenty of supplies including extra spices, plastic containers, and foil. The staff (Veronica, Luis and security) is kind, helpful and responsive, and Patsy is very easy to work with. She patiently answered all my questions, provided extra help and service, and genuinely wants her guests to have a memorable stay. To this end, she also provides other “goodies” to make the stay more comfortable – beach towels, beach/pool toys, games, umbrellas, hats, and extra toiletries. The condo is located south of town next to San Francisco Beach. At first, I was concerned about being “far from town,” but it is an easy, 10 minute drive up the “highway.” The hotel restaurants north of the condo complex will not serve non-hotel guests and the restaurants on the beach south of town close at sunset. So, I would definitely rent a car for ease of access to restaurants in town and the grocery store. If you don’t want to rent a car, you can also take a taxi if you won’t be taking many trips, and the taxis will usually return to pick you up for the trip home. The unit, itself, is right on the beach with easy access to the pier for scuba diving and other boating activities. It is also next to the pool and, of course, the beach. The beach has chaise lounges and Palapas for shade. The beach is protected by buoys so it is great for swimming and snorkeling. All the beaches in Cozumel can be a little rocky, so I would recommend swim shoes or scuba booties for swimming. We have been diving with Dive Paradise for over 15 years. They are a large operation, but will cater to individual needs. We always book the “express” boats (either AM or PM) which carry a maximum of 6 divers and always request Julio as our Dive Master. The dive boats pick divers up at the pier just north of the condo. The condo complex has a scuba rinse tank located behind the bathrooms at the pool. We would stop at the rinse tank on our way back from the pier to rinse our gear. We then brought the gear to the condo to dry on the patio (but not on the wood railing!). It was an easy routine to get used to. As I said in the beginning, we would definitely return to unit 5120. It was a great experience and felt like home away from home."

Quintana Roo Travel Tips

Quintana Roo has Perfect Beaches and Much More

The Mexican state of Quintana Roo is on the eastern part of Yucatán Peninsula. It is home to some of the best vacation areas in the country. Some visitors come seeking activity all day and dancing all night; others come for the tranquility of large beaches and warm seas. While the capital city of Quintana Roo is Chetumal, the state also includes Cancún, the islands of Cozumel, Isla Mujheres, and towns such as Bacalar, Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Playa del Carmen. Other places to visit are Puerto Juárez, Akumal, and Puerto Morelos. Remnants of the ancient Mayan civilization abound here, such as at Chaccbhoben, Coba, Kohunlich, Muyil, Tulum, Xel-Há, and Xcaret. And that is just a few! This is a large area, great for mixing relaxing on the beach with some water sports thrown in and day trips in an array of beautiful towns and ancient ruins.

Being geared to tourism, Quintana Roo is easy to explore and most people coming here take advantage of the many options to get around the area. Most choose to arrive via Cancún International Airport and many take a rental car option for maximum freedom to explore. Many choose Quintana Roo Mexico vacation rentals for the same reasons.

Beaches, Water Sports and Theme Parks Galore

Cancún, known as the Mexican Caribbean, sits on the Yucatán Channel and is a world-famous tourist location. Visitors here will enjoy some of the best beaches in the world with an exceptional amount of water sports, such as diving, swimming with dolphins and deep sea fishing. A short ferry ride takes visitors to the beautiful Isla Mujeres and one of the many attractions here is the incredible seafood! The island is a favorite for those who enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving on the many coral reefs. Another major attraction here is the facility for the rescue and breeding of sea turtles. Cancún has great shopping and a variety of theme parks, such as Xplor, Xcaret Eco Park and Xel-Ha.

For those who find the lure of exploration, the Riviera Maya will be a great experience. People come here for the archaeological sites, such as Coba and Tulum.

The town of Bacalar sits on a lagoon of the same name. This beautiful town dates from the 16th century and has a fascinating history of piracy. The 17th-century Fortress de San Felipe Bacalar is now a wonderful tourist attraction.

Those seeking quieter Quintana Roo Mexico resorts have many options to choose from. Puerto Morelos, with its mangrove swamp, or Akumal, meaning "place of the turtles" would make great options. There are many smaller resorts that are less crowded but with equally wonderful beaches and shopping. They are also within close proximity to larger towns for more lively activities.

Archaeological Sites to See

No visit to Quintana Roo Mexico condos is complete without exploring some of the incredible ancient sites in this region. Visitors will enjoy heading into the jungle to visit these sites. Bonampak is famous for its graphic murals of human sacrifice! Kohunlich, Dzibanche and Oxtankah are famous for the lush jungle, exotic birds and wildlife. Bring your bathing suit to Tulum, the "Walled City" where the beach is next to the site. Visitors can view the Fresco remnants before heading for a swim. Accessible by river via long boats is Yaxchilan. Deep in the Chiapas jungle, this site includes several Mayan ruins and is well worth a visit.

Make Your Vacation Perfect with the Perfect Accommodation

Visitors to Quintana Roo Mexico vacation rentals will find a huge variety of accommodation options available. Whether it is a spacious home in the heart of the city or a condo close to a quiet beach, you will find the perfect option. Rather than being bound to a room, these homes offer the space to relax and enjoy a welcoming environment. Homes are equipped with everything required to make a perfect vacation even better.
