Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Fantastic House!!

    "Our family of six stayed Oct 15-21, 2014 in Casa Guacamaya. It was a great house. We loved how roomy it was for our family. It was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked, we especially appreciated the abundance of purified water, paper towels, and laundry detergent. The beds were firm, but still comfortable. There were lots of towels and bedding. We loved the location. The path to the beach was beautiful. There were very few people at the beach which made it really nice. The house was close to everything we needed, but still nice and quiet. We always felt very safe, even at night. The internet was slow in the house sometimes, but it wasn't a big deal. The aviary is just through the backyard so you hear the birds nice and early, but we were warned of that so we came prepared with ear plugs. The pool was large and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The maid service was a pleasant extra. She did a great job. This is a great place for a family. We highly recommend it."

  • Quiet Oasis for our Family to Explore

    "We spent five nights at Casa de Paloma and loved everyone of them. The property is very clean and cared for. The property caretakers were on hand to help with anything that we needed and very nice. The location was postcard perfect. We loved the time spent on our little beach and snorkeling right out the front door. We had the joy of swimming with numerous fish and sting ray. Our fishing/snorkeling guide Victor was fantastic and the kids hauled in so many fish that fishing was not boring. We ate at a few restaurants, bought fruit and cakes from the trucks that drive right to your door. We saw a manatee in the mangroves and birds on bird island. Lots of outdoor activities to keep you busy. A good selection of restaurants. The people are super pleasant. We thought the road to the Xcalak would be undeveloped but it was a great narrow highway the entire way and no problems at all. The house is located just outside of town so it was quiet but with easy access to town amenities. We hope to return one day soon."

  • Perfecto!

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We recently stayed in two units at Recidencias Reef for a wedding that we attended in Cozumel. We moved to this unit after our Nanny arrived, and it was almost too big for the nanny, my husband, myself and our young son. But we loved having the space. Breakfast on the patio every morning! And plenty of room to sunbath while a baby is napping! We loved this property!"

  • Perfect for our get away!

    "We stayed in one of the upstairs suites for a quiet get away. The description of the room was perfect. We could lay in our bed and watch the sun rise in the morning over the ocean. The patio off the room was the perfect place to sit and look at the amazing view! The pool was the perfect place to cool off and we loved the little shaded area on the patio. Having access to walk on the beach was a major perk to this property! The property was well maintained with all of the needed supplies. The manager was sweet and helpful, answering all of our questions and finding information for us about a whale shark tour. We loved the location...close to town, but not too close. We also loved that it was within walking distance of our favorite restaurant (Mango Cafe)! I would highly recommend this place!"

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.
