Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • A Perfect Location

    "If you like being out of the hubbub of the immediate downtown then this is the place for you. The pictures don't lie! You can snorkel right off the beach, have your own kitchen if you are so inclined, and the condo is well-serviced and very clean. You basically need a car on Cozumel anyway, so why not have your own place and be able to pick and choose when you want "the night life". Highly recommended!"

  • Amazing Place

    "My family stayed for 3 nights at Sac Chich in March, and had a wonderful time. My wife and 4 kids (13,11,9,6) spent a lot of time at the pool, and the owners' dog Eva came over and played one afternoon (which was a huge hit with the kids). The grounds were beautiful, the building was unlike anywhere we stayed before, and it was almost more beautiful at night than during the day. The owners were staying at Casa Sisal next door, and we walked up one morning to check that out as well (very modern, very sleek, a great vacation rental as well). We'd stayed in Merida for a few days before this, so to have all of this open space was a real treat for the kids. We had the staff make breakfasts and dinners for us, and the food was REALLY good, and the "girls" (as Cyndy called them) were very friendly and helpful (it was fun testing our Spanish with them). All in all, we had a great stay, and were very sad leaving our hacienda."

  • Tastefully decorated 2 Bedroom Condo in a great location-Paseo del Sol in Playacar, MX

    "We rented this 2 bedroom condo from November 7 to 25,2014 in the Paseo del Sol complex which houses about 4 three story buildings containing roughly 65 owner occupied and rental condo units. Paseo del Sol complex is located in Playacar, a gated community, containing residences and several all-inclusive hotel resorts. The area is both safe and secure. Paseo del Sol has 24 hour security. It is about a 15 minute walk (7 to 9 peso taxi ride) to 5th Avenue and surrounding area where the shopping district is located along with a number of great restaurants. This 2 bedroom spacious condo unit was tastefully decorated/appointed containing excellent quality furniture and furnishings. It was a bright and light corner unit on the main/ground level of the complex, called Reef 106. The kitchen was fully equipped and the unit contained a washer/dryer. Bottled drinking water containers are delivered to the condo as required/requested,with maid/cleaning service provided when requested, with a meaningful tip for the cleaning lady. We went to several excellent restaurants, just off 5th Avenue, including Oh Lala, Imprevist, Como Como and the Plank. We also ordered on-line having groceries brought to the condo for a nominal price, as well we ordered pizza from a restaurant called Amore and very good Thai food from a takeout restaurant owned by Oh Lala which was delivered to our condo. We enjoyed our stay in the condo. A great location. The office and cleaning staff was very good. We would recommend."

  • Fantastic stay! Great location and friendly staff

    "Came in January for a trip with my close friends. Booking with Sheryl was very easy and she always responded promptly. She even had a welcome card with a bottle of wine for us waiting in our room.(nice touch) Aldea thai was the perfect place to stay not only is the location perfect (right in the heart of town) the staff was very friendly and spoke very fluent English. It's nice that it's a condo but has all the amenities of a hotel. The whole feel of the place is very tranquil with all the thai accents. The pool was lovely and very relaxing (beach was A lot busier and louder) As far as the condo it self I was surprised at how big it was. The pictures don't do it justice. There was lots of room and the layout was perfect. Can't beat that ocean view either. I not only would recommend this place to my friends I will return next year because it really was a wonderful trip! There are many options to book at aldea Thai but after my experience booking with Sheryl I will only book with her in the future for my next stay in playa del Carmen. Thanks 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.
