Spring break without the spring breakers.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villas Marlin was wonderful! The resort is located right on the ocean, and the adjacent beach is fabulous. There is a secure gatehouse with a 24 hour guards at the street side of the property; there is also a 24-hour guard at the beach front. The guards, in spite of having limited English speaking ability, were friendly.

There are 3 pool areas, with smaller jacuzzi style tubs at both the south (kids area) and north (adults only area). None of the pools or tubs appear to be heated, and all close at 8pm. This is disappointing at times, but also keeps the property quiet at night, and far more family-friendly than it would be with hot tubs 24/7. If you're looking for a place where you can drink in the pools and splash around all night, try another location. We were there with our 13 & 15 year old sons at the height of the US spring break and I'm happy to report that we didn't see or hear anything that made me regret the trip, which was somewhat of a concern on the way there.

Due to unit availability (which we knew of before booking) we switched units mid-stay; both units were clean and comfy. Landy and the housekeeping crew do a really great job.

We were fortunate enough to catch a big barracuda on a day trip, and when my wife offered some of the meat to Landy she was very appreciative, and thanked us for the "pesca rico" the next time we saw her. Communication throughout the process with Jacky & Frank was outstanding.

There were four of us, each with electronic devices - for charging purposes, I suggest bringing an extension cord and electrical splitter(s). In comparison to some of the other on-site properties, our units were somewhat plain and maybe a bit dated, but factoring in the cost, we couldn't have been happier.

The Soriano Supermerado (grocery store) in the mall directly across the street from the property has pretty much everything you need to cook onsite, at decent prices. Unless you are specifically looking for an adventure into the downtown (Walmart, Mercado 23, Mercado 28), I recommend you do your shopping there. I don't regret our trip to Walmart, and loved the bus ride, but if we come again we'll do all of our shopping at the Soriano.

In closing, you'll be hard pressed to find a beach front property with these amenities at this price. Frank and Jacky were great hosts, and we have no regrets about staying at their place.

Enjoyed Condo #436 & Cancun!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Cancun at Villa Marlin, at Jacky's condo #436 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The condo is very nice and was perfect for 3 people, everything is at close proximity, whether you need to grab some groceries or have dinner in a restaurant. No need for a rental car, you can hop on a bus just a short walk from the condo or take a taxi - they are always available right by the Villa Marlin entrance. You can't miss with the weather...just fantastic the whole time! Jacky and Frank, the owners of the condo, were very helpful and courteous with any questions or concerns we may have had, the cleaning staff Landy and her sidekick did a wonderful job and the Villa Marlin property is very well laid out and maintained. Our only small disappointment was that the ocean was quite rough - under red flag condition: of course we could swim but only in restricted areas and no too far into the surf. Apparently those were normal conditions for this period of the year. Also the lack of bars on the beach surprised us.

All in all we highly recommend this condo!

great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this apartment, the location was just perfect for us, walking distance from main shopping malls in cancun (plaza kukulcan and plaza la isla), the interior of the apartment was very convenient for what we needed, we used to go to the beach for a while and then enjoy the swimming pool, very quite place to be with the family. The owners are very nice !!

I would stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Cancun, the trip was a last minute decision, and we booked the condo the day before arriving.

The location is central, you should have no problems even without a car, the view of the ocean is fantastic, and it was quiet enough there, which is what we wanted, and were not confident we would find in a hotel. Jacky was trusting, accepting our reservation without securing payment with a credit card ahead of time, and also trustworthy, getting us the key without any hassle or waiting.

There are some comments about hard mattresses, but we felt they were just firm and it was just fine.

Also, this place is cheaper than other rentals in the same condo building, b/c it has not been renovated recently and the TVs are old etc. Overall, we think this place is a great value.

The last advantage of this place is being right next to the Kukulcan plaza mall where you can find some dining/shopping options and a grocery store.

Very Good Place to spend time in Cancun

  • 5 of 5

The place felt like home away from home. It felt good to relax on a sofa, have a kitchen and very nice bathrooms. It was tastefully decorated, conveniently located and damn relaxing. It's conveniently located to get to any place in Cancun and beyond.

We took the bus to Walmart to get our provisions and took a taxi back the first time. Walmart has a McDonalds, Chinese fast food and pizza place. We had breakfast one time and lunch another time in this food court. There were some items that were cheaper than in the States and items more expensive.

We have done the A/I resorts and this was better. We didn't have to line up for meals and be there at certain times, there wasn't music blaring everywhere like the Hard Rock. I didn't have to get up at 5:00am to get a cabana. It was sheer relaxation.

The building itself is in good condition and some touch up needed here and there but that's how it goes in the tropics. The guards were friendly and courteous.

The wife made breakfast in the morning and I made the drinks the rest of the day. We got beer and three bottles of Pina Colada prepared, just added crushed ice and a Margarita bottle. When we ran out of beer just went a block (short block) away to OXXO to get more.

We are already planning for next year. This is the kind of vacation we love and this unit is the place to spend it.

The owner was helpful and responded to our requests without delay. We made two and there were not problems. Thanks Mike.

Our condominium is conveniently located right in the heart of Cancun's hotel zone close by most of the area's major attractions. Many are within walking distance. City buses and taxis constantly pass by right in front on the main boulevard.
