This rental unit was perfect for a laid-back vacation for a small family. The very short walk to the supermarket made it the most convenient location ever! The swimming pools were great, Security personnel always around and helpful. The upstairs could possibly benefit from a couple mattress toppers and a TV in the twin bed room but I would still recommend unit as is. In addition to the very convenient supermarket, there is also a bus stop right in front of the market that we rode all over Cancun for 12 pesos per person. The beach In front of resort is beautiful, and late one night we saw a giant turtle laying her eggs which were collected and put in a protected area. This rental is near everything but also very laid-back and quiet.
We had a wonderful stay at this property everything was great. Close to many restaurants n shopping center trasportation was so easy to access. Home was clean and very relaxing and quiet. It was awesome
A nice alternative to big resorts
We had a nice stay at the beachfront villa. Brisa was very responsive to all my questions and issues. The rental is in a large building with privately owned condos. Although there is no main lobby or restaurant, it's a nice alternative to staying in a massive resort with disappointing buffets.
The villa is on Playa Marlin, a pretty public beach in Cancun. When you go out to the beach in the morning some young men will offer you two lounge chairs and an umbrella for either 200 pesos or $30 American dollars. Since 200 pesos works out to $10 dollars, I suggest you take the pesos deal! The second time I went out, they asked for 250 pesos but I said I had previously paid 200 so they took the money. (Hint: Walk out there with a 200-peso bill and say that's all you have.)
There was also a guy offering to get drinks from the local convenience store and bring it to us. He was getting us beers for about $2.50 each.
The villa has a bedroom with two twin beds upstairs and a king bedroom downstairs. There are two gorgeous bathrooms downstairs with showers. It has a small kitchen with all the basics. The only downside for me was that there was no TV upstairs, instead it's in the master bedroom downstairs. I'm not a big TV watcher, so I didn't care much, but it did feel quiet upstairs. I wish I had brought a bluetooth speaker to play music. Also, there are no laundry facilities in the unit.
There's a grocery store in the shopping mall right behind the building. It's easy to shop for everything you need and cook meals inside the condo.
I also recommend three restaurants all within a couple blocks of the place. El Fish Fritanga has a beautiful downstairs dining area on the water and the seafood is excellent. La Destilería is upscale and also has a great view, we had chicken mole poblano there and it was incredibly tender and flavorful. Finally, Torta Brava offers cheap eats with an upstairs dining area and a view of the lagoon.
If you want to tour the Mayan ruins, there's a small shack right on the main street belonging to A's Tours. They set up a Chichen Itza tour for my husband for $60 (including entrance fee). To get around the hotel zone, the bus stop is right there and you can pay with a US $1 bill.
You'll have a different stay at this place compared to a resort. You'll shop for groceries, you'll walk around the area more and you will definitely practice your Spanish. You'll feel more like a local.
Great location near shopping, and beachfront
Great location, very quiet area behind Kukulcan plaza, which has some nice shopping and a great grocery store. We would walk north to some additional great shopping and restaurants. The beach was just steps away, with lifeguards, and multiple pools. The A/C units worked great, and memory foam topper on the master bed was super comfy!
Thank you for being great guests and treating the Villa like it was your home! We hope to have you all again soon!
We had a great time. We had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. The property is located within walking distance to great restaurants and a shopping center that also has a grocery store.
We had a great time in Cancun and at this condo. It was perfect for our stay, two bathrooms are a must with teenagers.
The master room king bed was very comfortable.
The Kululzan Plaza is right next door which has a wonderful supermarket on the second floor (with a deli for hot foods as well) and additional shops which was great for our needs.
Villas Marlin is in close proximity to many shops, restaurants, malls, touristic activities, and more! Just in front of Villas Marlin there is a shopping mall with many shops and a grocery store as well. Just a block from Villas Marlin there is another shopping mall with many restaurants and shops you will love called La Isla. Cancun is not only well known for their gorgeous beaches but also their beautiful attractions, ruins, and theme parks.
