Enjoy an abundance of shopping and restaurants that are just a short 5 minute walk from our villa. Our villa is steps away from the 12th hole of the Championship Playacar Golf Course designed by Robert van Hagge and now run as the HARD ROCK golf course as well as the large shared pool and palapa. We are also located just a short walk away from the tropical Aviary (bird sanctuary). The villa backs up to it so at feeding times twice a day it is a little noisy !A 10-15 minute walk will take you to the Reef Club Resort where our guests as space is available can enjoy the facilities (beach chairs, pool and towel service) for no extra charge or for a daily discounted fee, you can enjoy the all inclusive priveledges. The Newly redone HARD ROCK golf Course is located across the street from the Reef Club as well as the Hard RockClub and Spa.
The large outdoor terrace will be your favorite spot. Enjoy morning coffee while listening to tropical birds, have breakfast at the outdoor table, or relax in the shade in lounge chairs for an afternoon nap. When evening arrives, BBQ on the gas grill while enjoying a cold drink!
A modern kitchen with granite countertops and most all appliances will make preparing meals easy..but due to the calcium /Hard Water there is no ice maker or dishwasher. The open floor plan allows for you and your family to all be together for meals , games, TV and just having fun. There is a bar area between the dining room and living room, perfect for serving drinks and snacks.
The three spacious bedrooms are all on the second floor. The master suite has a king sized bed with a balcony to enjoy your morning coffee while listening to tropical birds or reading a good book. The second bedroom is spacious and equipped with a king bed. The third spacious bedroom has a set of twin beds that can be converted into a king bed. All bedrooms have large en suite baths that have been remodeled with marble counters and walk-in showers.
Well equipped grocery stores are easily accessible to meet all of your food and drink needs, or for an extra fee groceries can be provided upon arrival. Private transportation from the Cancun airport can be arranged on request for an additional fee.

David and my daughter Tonya Smith purchased this House in 2012
Why David and my daughter Tonya Smith chose Villas del Mayab
It just seems to be close to everything you could possibly need ! And it is... . But please understand this is MEXICO and contrary to popular belief it's still a 3rd world country , if something breaks it's fixed when they want to , not when you want it ! I have no control over this and you need to understand and accept this ! It's very seldom but things do happen !
What makes this House unique
This villa is in the most well known private community in the Rivera Maya region .. PLAYACAR . Yet as a guest I must remind you this is MEXICO and water ,power , internet , cable ect . Are ls subject to outages beyond my control . Storms wind and just plain old wear and tear can at times cause an outage , and that being said , again this is Mexico and often times repairs are treated as MAÑANA TIME . Which in reality means when we get to it ! I just wanted to include this as an advisory , certainly not to suggest it's even a possibility during your stay , just advice for a coastal zone !

Amazing home, great location owner was available before and during trip to answer questions,
We had a n amazing family vacation.
We had 3 generations of family total of 10 people stay in house. Very spacious, each room has their own bathrooms with showers which was great!
There was so much to see and do each day which was equally impressive for or college kids as well as our parents.
The community was safe and clean.
Thank you for your kind review , also I try to be accessible to you if you need advice or information . I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and we would love to have you visit again !
Fun Beach House
The house is perfectly located for access to the beach and Playa 5th Avenue. The beach is amazing. Feel very safe in the area. The three bedrooms with private baths are perfect for 3 couples. The house was clean and comfortably furnished. Enjoyed the wet bar area. The kitchen is functional with a full size fridge and gas stove. Appreciated the visits from house keeping. Gas Weber BBQ was awesome. Patio has seating for a large group. The Aviary takes getting used to. Very loud at sun rise and feeding time. Would be nice if there were 2 bikes to run errands. Glass and dinner ware could use an update but were sufficient and functional. The community pool area is great. Highly recommend cafe Sofia's restaurant near by. Nice to meet David and Julie. Thank you for dropping of the glasses. Mario from the Management company was helpful and easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you so much for your kind review and suggested items in need of attention ! I was glad to have met you as it so happened I was in Playa two days when you were !

David & Tonya Smith
The house was very nice has everything to make it feel like your own home
The maid service was very much appreciated Thank you !
The king size bed in the one room was very hard, would be nice if the bed was more comfortable.
Would recommend this house
Stacy , Thank you for your review and I am extremely pleased you had a great trip ! If at your leisure you could reply to me which bedroom matress seemed to hard I really want to know ,,, I will be there on the 19th and can check for myself... I hate a hard matress !
Was it the bedroom with or without the private patio balcony ?
Also was the hospitality site on the website any help to you or did you even access it ? I only ask because it's new !
Thank you for the review and if you wish to stay with me again I will offer you a 10% discount for being a return guest .
Thank you for your visit ,
Nice house, three bedrooms. No dishwasher!!! the washing machine didn't clean the clothes well. Only plastic plates, some plastic glases. Close to beach and Town. helpfull and friendle. Nice to hava access to a nice hotell nearby. Overall a good stay! Good cleaning.
Well I'm glad you didn't find to much to disappoint you , there is no dishwasher mentioned anywhere in the listing or in pictures and for the same reason I don't have an ice maker the calcium in the water destroys them in a years time , I personally don't know of any one with them unless run with a private water system I haven't seen
In use . I will have dishes and glassware inventoried but plastic is for safety as a local such as this beach area -- and tile floors combined with mostly bare feet doesn't lend itself to glassware ! The washer and drier are 16 months old and once again the extremely hard water is a issue . I'm sorry these items didn't meet your criteria but thank you for your input and overall I hope you enjoyed your stay

Excellent family vacation home!
We came for Christmas holidays with 2 families and the house was perfect for it. Our children are teenagers and the close access to 5th ave was great. We enjoyed the tennis courts (bring your own rackets/balls) and the pool. The beach is a nice short walk through the ruins and all of playacar is wonderful to walk through. The boys enjoyed the Reef Club a lot. Access is limited to 4 people per pass and they'll let in 20 passes at the same time. So at busy times, arrive at 8.30am (open at 9am) to get in in the morning or just go in the afternoon. One day we bought the all inclusive pass for $50US/pp and all went in. Great day and use of catamarans and Kayaks as well. We loved the birds and if anything is not working, the staff is very responsive to fix it. Only the internet was intermittent when we were there. Loved to come back again!
Carla , thank you for you kind review , I am happy that you felt that our Casa was what you expected and that the Reef club also was a nice experience ... Unfortunately some guests try to experience the same things your group did but do so with an attitude of entitlement that unfortunately goes no where in a hurry !!!
We would be very happy if you ever desire a return visit and gladly offer a 5 % discount to you for a future stay ... Just mention my offer when you wish to book and I will adjust the price for you .
See you again soon .. David & Tonya
I would stay here again....and again
My large family stayed here back in July and we loved it. The house was large enough for all of us. We loved the fact that is was just a short walk from the beach,oxxo,pharmacy,ferry, restaurants and night life of Playa. All the rooms are upstairs and they all have a full bathroom,lots and lots of big towels!! There are plenty of extra linens and pillows. The beds are a little to firm for my liking but nothing that I could not handle. There is some type of bird sanctuary behind the house and you can hear the birds this didn't bother me I thought it was kinda cute to hear them squawk. There is a bbq pit in the back yard with enough chairs and a table. The kitchen is complete with all the utensils you will need. You can catch a taxi on one of the main roads which is almost outside the door. But don't worry the house is not on the main road if you are worried about traffic. Another major plus for me is that the house has a washer and dryer with a large family with kids that is a must. Along with that they provided laundry detergent, dryer towels,bottled water,toilet paper,paper towels,bar soap,hand soap and dishsoap!! I have stayed at other condos and they have never provided these things. It was very nice not having to worry about those things!! I would highly recommend Casa Guacamaya
Thank you so much for your kind review .. We do our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible !
We look forward to having you visit us again and I will gladly offer a 5% discount to you or any friends you refer to me !
Just mention it to me as a return rentor and I will adjust the price !
