About John & Jacqueline
John and I were married on a beach so of course we were going to end up living on the beach. We have 3 daughters, 1 son and 6 grandsons which are our pride and joy. We were so excited that we had found our little piece of heaven in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. A place that we could enjoy and share with our children, grandchildren and now with you and your family.
John & Jacqueline purchased this Condo in 2016
Why John & Jacqueline chose Puerto Morelos
We had been to Curacao and Aruba quite a few times thinking that is where we would eventually end up when John retired in a few years. We were planning a special trip to celebrate John's 50th birthday. We had decided to go to Playa del Carmen but instead a friend of John's told him about Puerto Morelos. So, we rented a 1 bedroom for our 2 week stay in January 2016. When we arrived at Palma Real and left our bags and walked out on to the beach we knew immediately that we had found the place that we had always been looking for on all our travels. On that trip a wonderful couple told us that there was a 2 bedroom for sale below them and they kindly set us up with a realtor. As soon as we arrived to condo 205 from the very first moments when we opened the front door and saw the breathtaking view through the floor to ceiling glass doors we knew that we had arrived to our Little Piece of Heaven. Suffice to say we fell in love with it and closed on our dream condo in July 2016.
What makes this Condo unique
The view. Every evening we go out and either sit on the sofa with a drink or lay on the bed or hammock and listen to the waves. The happiness and peace that we feel every time that we are in the condo or out on the balcony we had not found anywhere else in the world. We love the little town of Puerto Morelos. The restaurants/bars are amazing! The people are absolutely wonderful. The best part is that you are in paradise but you are still close enough to Playa del Carmen and Cancun to do tourist things and then come back home to peace and tranquility.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great balcony, pool, and ocean front view!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 8-day stay at this condo with our 3 little kids. As shown in the pictures, the balcony is quite large and has a wonderful view. The hammock and comfy couches make it very inviting. The pool is great attractive and great for kids. And you can't beat the proximity of the beach - so close!
The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, coffee maker and other niceties. We didn't anticipate eating in as much as we did and the kitchen had everything we needed.
If we stay in PM again, we will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so glad that you and your family found the condo to your liking and that you enjoyed yourselves. We would love to have you back to Palma Real 205!
The condo was great!!
Huge Sony TV (65'' screen I think) with multiple channels and many in English.
The condo was well appointed with nice furniture.
The kitchen has everything you will ever need.
It was well stocked with condiments, bags, towels, beach toys, bug spray, everything.
The property is on a nice beach front with a pool and a hot tub.
Just a 15 minute walk to town.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
Thank you so much for your recent review. By the way the TV is a 55 inch. We are so happy that we were able to meet all of your needs and expectations. We can't wait to see you again in Palma Real 205!
Perfect for those looking for quiet vacation!
We enjoyed our stay at Palma Realz and look forward to coming back! Jacqueline was super sweet and so responsive! She send us a full detailed package on all things to know/do in Puerto Morales which was super helpful. The unit had 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus a pull out in the living room. My sister slept on the pull out couch and stated that the it was super comfortable to sleep on. We brought out own sunscreen, medication etc but none of that was needed as the unit storage closet had all of it already. Unit was super spacious which was helpful we had an active 2 yr old who loves running around.
I gave it 4/5 rating because of few
1) we had issues with trying to get the keys from the property manager as the instructions stated to pick up the keys directly from the office. We arrived at the office at 2:30pm and the office was closed. There was no sign of when the employees would be returning back to the office, after scrambling to find the number, we called the office and the individual we spoke with was bit rude stating "didn't you follow the instructions to get the keys, they are in the lock box." The instructions we were provided was to that an employee would provide us with the keys but the keys can be found in the lockbox if we arrive that the location after 5pm.
2) The air conditioner in the room with King Size bed was not working. We called Les (who was very responsive and sweet BTW!), but unfortunately, could not get the air conditioning to be fixed until the day we were leaving. It would have been nice if the property management checked to ensure all air conditioner was working before each guest checked in. Its hot in PM and air conditioner would have been great, the fan in the room did it's best to cool us off.
3) the pool was cold as I was told the therm. state broke and there was no word on when it was going to be fixed.
4) the property was at a beach front but we could not swim at the beach due to all of the seaweed. I'm not sure whos responsible for cleaning up the seaweed- property or the gov.
Despite the above issues, we would still rent the unit again during our future stay in PM. Hopefully by then the issues will have been resolved :)
btw, the location was perfect! 2 min taxi ride to the center of PM (40 pesos) or 10 min walk!
Thank you so much for your review. I am so glad that you were happy with your stay at our condo. Also, that your sister found the sofa bed comfortable. I apologize for the miscommunication with picking up your keys at the management company. I have discussed that issue with them. I apologize for the air conditioning not working in the master bedroom and have sent on your concerns to the management company. In regards to the discrepancies of the property I have forwarded those issues to the administration of Palma Real for prompt resolution. Thank you so much for your input. This will help us improve and make every visit even better. I look forward to having you and your family back at Palma Real 205..
Wonderful Condo. in paradise.
This is truly a great condo and is very well maintained. We booked three condos in Palma Real during the holidays and this condo. had no issues while the others did have some smaller ones. The owners are very prompt and take care of any question or concern. I would highly recommend anyone staying here.
I don't know why my response did not show up on our page but I promptly responded to your review. I was so happy to work with you. I was quite excited about you going to spend time in our condo. (This was my earlier response.) Thank you so much for your great review! I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our little bit of heaven! We hope to see you again in Palma Real 205.
This a great property with everything you could possibly need! Very comfortable condo with a great pool. Walking distance into town, and Puerto Morelos is such a fun place with super friendly people, great shops and restaurants! Will definitely be back!
We are so happy that you found our condo and Puerto Morelos a great place to visit. We so enjoyed having you stay in our condo.
The best place on earth
The condo was absolutely gorgeous and it was just a short distance from town. All the people were so nice and the view was magnificent. The condo was big and had everything you would need! The patio was where we spent most of our time (on the big round chair and the hammock!) This was the best vacation I have been on in a long time. I’m definitely coming back as soon as I can!
We are so happy that you had a great time. Thank you for the very nice compliments. Let us know when you are ready to come back to paradise.
Puerto Morelos is the most perfect little town. You have a lot of artisan shops to be able to buy handcrafted items. Being that Puerto Morelos is in between Cancun and Playa del Carmen you have quite a few options of things to do for the day. Yet you are close enough to come back home to your condo for some peace and tranquility. If you go to Cancun, you can catch the ferry and take a day trip to Isla Mujeres which I highly suggest. You can also catch a ferry in Playa del Carmen to go to Cozumel though we have yet to experience that day trip. Another place we always go and visit every time is the Tulum Mayan Ruins. It is about a 1 hour drive but it is absolutely breathtaking. If you like viewing Mayan Ruins, I suggest you go to see Chichen Itza. It is a 2 1/2-hour drive to get there but I promise you it is well worth the trip. There are also some amazing theme parks in the Riviera Maya. This last trip we went to Xcaret. We were there for10 hours. We went in our swimsuits and took a change of clothes for the evening show. We ate at one of their many restaurants and then went to the show. The show was comparable to a Las Vegas show. It lasted for 2 hours from beginning to end. It was AMAZING! You can buy the full day ticket for the water attractions, dinner and show. Or you can buy a half day ticket for dinner and the show. Which we will be doing the next time that we go to Xcaret. We have also gone to Xplor. We had 3 generations and we all enjoyed the day. When I say day, it really does take an entire day to do everything at Xplor. Next trip we will be going to Xel Ha. There are many theme parks and we are just getting started exploring them. Though our favorite thing to do is to go out to the beach to spend part of the day and then ending in the pool/hot tub before going upstairs. We change our clothes, get a drink, go out on the balcony to enjoy the view and listen to the waves. Not believing that we are really there experiencing such happiness!
