Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Fabulous family holiday in a wonderful location

    "We stayed at Casa Martia for 2 weeks in July/August 2014 and had the most wonderful time there. The listing on the website is completely accurate in terms of what to expect in the house, and the location/setting was even more beautiful than we had hoped for. The property was clean and well maintained, and the caretaker, Don José, does an excellent and unobtrusive job of making sure everything is tidied away outside at night, and reminding me to lock the car (!). The owners provided excellent information before we finally booked, replying patiently to all my detailed questions. The house is located midway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, which for us was an ideal location, i.e. close enough to take advantage of all that these two towns offer, but quiet enough to feel like we were off the beaten track. We had brunch nearly every day in nearby Puerto Morelos (10 mins drive), at La Pangea where the see breeze keeps you cool as you tuck into the best steak burrito ever. We had dinner also most nights in Puerto Morelos where there are numerous very reasonably priced eateries. We also ate in Playa del Carmen a couple of times which was touristy but loads of fun, and saved our appetites for a Churrasqueria meat dinner in Cancun one evening. We visited Tulum (magic), Chichen Itza (spectacular), did an (unforgetable) beginners' dive "en famille" with the dive shop next to the house, swam in the cool fresh water Cenotes (dos Ojos was great - do the accompanied snorkel to the bat cave), and enjoyed the turquoise sea and powder white sands of Playa Delfines in Cancun. All in all, one of the best family holidays ever - would recommend this to anyone who is looking to get away from it all, and relax in a sublime setting."

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed at this villa for seven days awesome location. Our caretaker Alex was the best took great care of us all and is an amazing chef his family is amazing also. Alfredo Baez the manager of the property was checking on us to see if we needed help with tours and taxis and arranged for us to be taken to the airport the last day. We will be back because of the location, cleanliness and service. We had an amazing time. Thanks again Alex and Alfredo!"

  • The best accommodations anywhere!

    "This place had everything my family of four needed and more. The spacious rooms and quiet night atmosphere was just what we needed after long days of playing on the beach, visiting cenotes and Mayan ruins with two very tired, young children. The proximity to the grocery store and transportation stops was perfect for saving money on food and transportation to anywhere we wanted to go outside of Playa del Carmen. The beach, 5th Ave., and the ferry to Cosumel, were only a short walk. We had such a great time!!!"

  • Beautiful, spacious, just secluded enough...

    "Situated close to Chankanaab park, this beach house is idyllic for travelers who want to plan their own days, be enough out of the hustle and bustle of the tourist flow but close enough to participate in anything and everything with just a few minutes drive, and who want to explore more of Cozumel than just the typical area of downtown of San Miguel. Renting a jeep is very easy (and cheap!) to do and provides you with tons of freedom to explore the whole island in a few days time. Villa Coronado is located on the "old beach road" south of San Miguel, about 2 miles south of Chankanaab Park, and only a 10 minute drive back in to downtown for a trip to the Mega grocery store, dozens of top-notch restaurants, and all kinds of excursions/activities. The beach house is immaculate and modern, with 4 extra large bedrooms with comfortable (I slept better than at home!) king-size beds and full bathrooms in each, upstairs and downstairs living areas, a beautiful iron spiral staircase, and a fully functional/furnished kitchen with all the appliances, coffeemaker, and reverse osmosis drinking system. This villa could very nicely accommodate 4 couples wanting to travel to Cozumel together, as easily as a family who all wanted to spread out a bit, as in our case. :) The private pool is beautiful and well-kept, and the rooftop terrace on the third floor makes for a perfect spot to have early morning coffee and watch the sun come up, or have a sunset fiesta. The landscaping is beautiful, exotic and meticulously kept, and it is just a 45-second walk across the lawn to the oceans edge (however, make sure to wear water shoes as this part is coral, and while wonderful to explore for fish and wildlife, don't go barefoot!). We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Cozumel- first-timers or veteran travelers alike. The property management team was there to meet us and show us all of the amenities, and was only a phone call away, had we needed their help. There were detailed instructions left for operating the safe, how to operate Magic Jack for calling home, and an extensive list of restaurants to try, along with reviews. All in all, our stay was perfect and we will definitely stay at Villa Coronado again!"

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.
