Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Playa Blanca #8 - Fantastic!

    "Stayed a week at this fantastic 3rd floor, bay facing condo 2/22/14 - 3/1/14. If a large balcony with a full wall of sliding glass doors with screens to allow falling asleep to and waking to the sound of the surf lapping 3 floors below is your idea of a great condo, then this is the one! Great view, balcony, and close to La Buena Vida. Also, own white sand beach with palapas and palm trees. There couldn't be a better condo on HMB."

  • Great First Experience

    "My family just enjoyed our first trip ever to Cancun and loved this property. We really had no idea what to expect but a friend suggested that we try renting a condo or villa. We chose Villas Nizuc because it's relatively close to the airport and seemed to be very reasonably priced. We chose this over one of the "all inclusives" and didn't make a mistake. The villa was awesome. It is located right on the beach just north of the Punta Nizuc, actually within easy walking distance on the white, soft beach. Being so close to the ocean, we had the soothing sounds of the waves constantly, but being somewhat south of the all inclusive resorts, the beach was actually surprisingly not busy. We enjoyed having a great swimming pool right between the patio and the Caribbean. My kids were back and forth from the ocean to the pool all day and the greatest part was having a friendly and watchful lifeguard watching them right from the property during most of the daylight hours. The rooms were great. They were spacious, clean, and well taken care of. The property manager was gracious and worked with our schedule upon arrival and departure to ensure we had a key. The easy access to the convenience store across the street was nice and having a bus stop right in front of the villa to take you to other necessary restaurants or shopping was very convenient. Also, I can't say enough about the staff at the villas. Particularly the security. They were so friendly and went out of their way to help. Whatever we needed, they tried to help us out if they could. Overall our stay at the Villas Nizuc was fantastic. I highly recommend it. Clint"

  • a little bit of paradise

    "Our family really enjoyed our stay at Nicte Ha. The decor was beautiful, the ocean views were outstanding, the house was clean and well-stocked. The house felt secluded and quiet, just what we wanted in a vacation. Maria prepared a delicious dinner for us, and the house was always clean. Jose, the gardener, was SUPER! Friendly, helpful and a really nice guy. He rinsed our rental car every day. Having said that, future guests should be aware of a couple of things: (1) although the house description lists a washer and dryer, the laundry room is locked, with a sign that says the housekeeper will do the laundry for a charge. We were disappointed, as we had planned to do laundry our last day (Sunday), which was the maid's day off. Rather misleading in the description. (2) While the house IS beautiful, it is a bit frayed around the edges. Just a few little annoyances with non-working fans, lights, cracked tiles inside and outside. (3) CHECK the HOUSE KEYS before you leave the house locked. Only one key fit the front door, and we could never get the second front door to unlock with EITHER key. (4) I wouldn't bring young children here; the tiles inside and out are extremely slick when wet, and the stairs to the upper rooms are steep and slick as well. (5) On Thursday, we left our beach towels to be washed, but we didn't receive replacements until Saturday afternoon. (6) The wi-fi is not reliable, and is spotty upstairs. Plus, the instructions we were given to log in were not correct. Since we needed to be in touch with family in the States, this was a bit disconcerting. Would we stay here again? Probably. Just be aware of the hiccups."

  • A dream come true

    "Here is a summary of my experience at Hacienda Corazon First of all the first thing that pops in your head when you arrive is "WOW" This place is stacked! Someone thought about everything that would make anyone feel comfortable and happy. If it's not the 3 refrigerators in the large open kitchen or the Xbox 360 in the game room or the reliable Wi-Fi it's something else. No little detail has been left out. The back yard is full of lounge chairs and setup so you can start enjoying life around a wonderful pool. Just a few feet away you can jump into the ocean or grab one of the kayaks provided to you and head out on an adventure. The food. I have traveled to Quintana Roo many times and rarely do I get to taste such delicious homemade meals. If you have the option to have their cooks come over trust me you will not let them leave your house! Once you have all your friends and family sitting at the large table you will feel truly at home. The staff is truly genuine and delightful people who will make you feel welcome. The cleaning crew knows what they are doing and usually come later in the day after everyone has been awake for sometime. We stayed for a full week and never noticed that anything was missed. The crew is very professional and friendly. The location is ideal for a combination of things. You can stay local in Puerto Aventuras and have a good time just walking around. There are many beaches and chill/relax activities to basically take it easy. If you want to party you are just 10/15 minutes away from Playa Del Carmen. There is also a local karaoke bar 10 minutes walking distance. You are just minutes away from a plethora of parks and natural activities not to mention Tulum. We rented a car so we basically just wandered out at different times. One of my favorite moments in the trip was when I took an early morning kayak trip by myself. About 100 yards out a turtle popped his head out next to me. He hung out for a while and I was able to enjoy the sunrise. Our friends got married in the backyard. The ceremony was very special. The party was incredible. Having a home built like this is truly a dream come true."

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.
