Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Fun in the sun!

    "We had an amazing time in Playa at Villa Izcalli! The staff was extremely responsive to any needs we had. House is close to the beach and less than 10 minute walk to town! The house was lovely -- better than we expected. Plenty of space and very clean. There were 11 of us, including 7 children. We all felt like the house was larger than the pictures. Views were fabulous from the roof deck. The neighborhood felt safe. The only bummer was all the seaweed, which seems to be a problem that only happens every few years. Obviously, this was something no one could control. The beach also had lots of sharp shells and some rocks. Even with the seaweed, it was still gorgeous. Some of our favorite activities, outside of the pool and beach, were a day trip to Tulum Ruins with an afternoon at Playa Paradise, which is a beach club. Fabulous! We did a snorkeling trip on the Catamaya which was also terrific. Our favorite places to eat were Carboncitas and La Cueva del Chango. If you can, reserve a night with the chef, Susan. We were unable to, although it was our loss. Wonderful vacation! The management was extremely easy to work with and the house was perfect!"

  • Spacious Condo, Convenient Location for a Big Family

    "I took our 8 year old and 4 “twenty somethings” to Cozumel over Holy Week. I picked this condo from the description, pictures and helpful reviews of past guests. It is in a perfect location to quickly access downtown, the marina, and conveniences like the grocery store and the airport. The condo is spacious, modern and spotless and had everything we needed for the week including a washer/dryer, filtered water, and a well stocked kitchen. We walked most of the time, but taxis are inexpensive and easy to catch in front of the condo. We also rented a vehicle one day in order to visit the other side of the island. The undeveloped beaches, rocks, and surf are beautiful and provided the backdrop for amazing photos. We enjoyed climbing up the trail to Coconut’s for lunch. The cliffside view is spectacular and the food/drinks are delicious. The older kids also went deep sea fishing with Albatross Charters, Eddie’s recommendation. They pulled in fish all day. The crew prepared fresh Mahi -mahi ceviche on board with their catch and then cleaned the rest for a meal we enjoyed later in the week. One touristy excursion we did was the pirate dinner cruise…”a good time was had by all”! Most of our days were spent lounging by the quiet pool and snorkeling right in front of the condo. Just be aware there is a current, but proficient swimmers will be fine. We all enjoyed hours of spotting starfish, eels, rays, conch, barracuda, and numerous reef fish. Eddie is timely with his communication and was available during our vacation to answer questions and to provide recommendations for restaurants and services. We followed his advice and were never disappointed. Plus, everyone in Cozumel knows him and his name often comes with a nice discount! The one thing I wish I had known prior to coming to Cozumel is that “cash is king”. Next time I would bring at least $300 USD in 5’s and 1’s for tips, taxis and small purchases. The residents prefer cash. I expected to use credit cards every time we went to a restaurant. However, many only take cash. We all agreed we want to come back to Cozumel. After getting acquainted with the whole island, this condo is in a great location. For those who need it, there is a/c, but if I want cold, dry air, I’ll stay at home. We kept the windows open all week and enjoyed the ocean breeze and sounds of the waves from every bedroom...luxurious! Thanks for your hospitality, Eddie!"

  • Fantastic Time

    "My husband and I brought our two teenage kids to Playa for Spring break and had a wonderful time. Everything Erica you said about the apartment was wonderful. The condo is very spacious, clean, and fantastic comfy beds. You have a beautiful home in Playa and I would not hesitate to recommend your unit and your service to all my friends here in Calgary. Thanks again..."

  • Wonderful Experience at Casa Marcella

    "It was not easy to leave the beautiful Casa Marcella this morning! So interesting to be adjacent to the H10 all inclusive for the week, reinforcing why a stay at Casa Marcella provides a truly authentic experience. Bruno could not have been more accommodating to our group of 12, he and his staff were polite and considerate. Bruno arranged for a masseuse to arrive most late afternoons (on the rooftop), and coordinated a great zip-lining trip. We elected to use Bruno's chef, and each meal was better than the next. (They even waited at the fishing pier for 2 hours one afternoon for first pick of fresh lobsters from the incoming boats). The pool and grounds were very well maintained, and the fresh ocean breezes passed through the house from start to finish. I do recommend a car, it is very easy to get around as everything is up and down A307, and the charming town of Puerto Morales is about 10-15 min away. We would highly recommend a stay at Casa Marcella, and hope to return in the future."

Yucatan, Mayan Riviera Travel Tips

Mayan Resorts Along the Yucatan Peninsula

On your next trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, consider traveling to Mayan resorts. The Mayan Riviera in Mexico is one of the more fascinating destination spots in the world. You have tropical beaches, ancient ruins, and a myriad of marine and wildlife, all steps away from Yucatan vacation rentals. The Mayan Riviera is more than one city; in fact, it is about 11 cities. Popular destinations for Yucatan villas include but are not limited to Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Akumal, Tulum, Puerto Aventuras, Puerto Morelos, and Xpu-Ha.

Forested Scenery near Yucatan Vacation Rentals

As you drive along route 307 to reach Yucatan vacation rentals, you will discover the land is flat and the scenery is akin to a flat forested region much like Canada or Europe. Interspersed along the highway are boulder-laden cliffs that will lead you down to clean, white sandy beaches. Once you arrive at Yucatan villas, you are able to sit on a private beach all day watching the waves roll in or playing in the surf. Playa del Carmen is the most popular Mayan Riviera destination where plenty of Mayan resorts await.

Yucatan Villas by Fifth Avenue

If you elect to stay in Playa del Carmen rather than other Mayan Riviera destinations, you can walk down Fifth Avenue on the local strip and pet wild lions, play with boa constrictors, or watch Maruichi bands. Many of the Yucatan villas are situated on the strip to provide you the most active nightlife and access to the beautiful beach. Cruises dock close to the strip, filling up the town with new faces each Tuesday and Thursday. Because so many cruise ships dock there, you'll find many jewelry stores, arts and crafts stores, and other retail shops that offer wonderful deals.

Mayan Resorts Provide Whale Shark Sightings

Water sports are the most attractive attractions in the Mayan Riviera. From Mayan resorts, you can head out to sea on a deep sea fishing tour or scuba dive boat. If you truly want a diving experience you will never forget, make sure the dive boat is heading to the known locations where the whale sharks hang out. Whale sharks can be very elusive creatures but dive boats in the Mayan Riviera have managed to find areas where they tend to hang out. At the end of your day with water sports, it may be time to head back to your Yucatan vacation rentals for a home-cooked Mexican meal.
