Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Everything an oceanfront villa should be

    "Choosing Tres Palmera made our family winter escape to the Riviera Maya everything we had hoped for. The villa was particularly well suited for all ages to relax from two toddlers through grandparents. There is plenty of room inside and out to offer privacy and plenty of comfort for a group of nine. We particularly enjoyed hanging out in the pool area for hours on end taking in the fabulous ocean view while reading, swimming, napping, or digging in the sand. We are glad we arranged to have Lucy and Daniel cook most of our dinners and two breakfasts so that we did not have to leave the perfect beach front location. Vacation relaxation began the moment we arrived. It was wonderful to arrive in the late afternoon and smell dinner cooking and open a refrigerator stocked with precisely the food and beverages we had asked for. We planned our remaining diners for the week with Lucy from a menu listing our choices. (it is in spanish, google translate came in handy) We shopped in Tulum at the Chedraui, a Wall mart scale store, left at the first stoplight in Tulum, the same road that heads to the beaches. It had everything we needed and takes credit cards. As many have mentioned the beach in front of Tres Palmeras is not a good swimming beach, but the Tulum beaches are magnificent. Powder white sand 100 yards out into the ocean. We made two trips to Playa Paraiso to enjoy not only the beach but food and beverage service at the table and beach bed we rented for $10. This covers parking as well. Shower and restrooms are included, credit cards accepted. Take the left fork in the road 2 KM east of Tulum, it's about 20 minutes from the villa. We found the villa offered comfortable bedrooms, plenty of hot water. With two living rooms, rooftop deck, and spacious pool area there is plenty of room for privacy for everyone evenin a large group. We very much appreciated the privacy of the villa and the beach area, with very little car or foot traffic. It was as if we had the ocean to ourselves. I found communicating with the owner Pam easy and helpful. She has decorated the villa in a tasteful traditional way and provided everything necessary for a memorable vacation."

  • Found My Paradise

    "This was my first stay at this property, I hope it was not my last, I would like to make this an annual trip. The gated community offers a very secure and safe environment. You never have to leave if you don't want to everything you could ever want is right there. I do recommend renting the golf cart, very efficient way to get around. The owners made sure my stay was everything I expected and more, I had everything I needed. The handy "Tips sheets" was very useful. The condo is very clean, spacious and had all the amenities you could ever want. The view is beautiful!!! I found my paradise!!"

  • 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!"

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.
