Overview

About the property

Two Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 5)

Our gorgeous, two-bedroom, beach-front apartment is in Villas Playasol, an intimate and secure condo complex located on the soft white sand of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. With an ocean view and just steps from the sea and the biggest blue pool in town, our modern little Mexican hide-away is a wonderful vacation choice for couples or families.

Puerto Morelos is a friendly fishing village with a good mix of European, North American, and Mexican families. The downtown square features a supermarket, gift shops, and a number of restaurants to fit most tastes and budgets. The village center is a short walk away from Playa Sol, either by the street or on the beach.

Our condo features a shady breakfast balcony, pool and ocean view, plus manicured tropical gardens. This is not just a rental property — it’s our summer home! We offer an on-site, English-speaking manager.

Our guests say....: We had a great Mexican adventure! We visited Mayan ruins and Merida, and had great fun at the pool and beach. Your place in Puerto Morelos was the perfect place for us to relax. Thanks for letting us stay, it really felt like home. — Paul, Christine, Emily and Alexis, Illinois

More words...: We really enjoyed our vacation. Puerto Morelos seemed to be the Mayberry of Mexico. It was truly a gem. Quite a variety of dining options and everyone was so nice. The beach was great and very empty during the week, a great contrast to the family action on Sunday. We called Charlie Brown for a snorkel adventure one afternoon, and spent our last day hiking in the botanical garden nearby. We were amazed at the amount of birds (isbis, egrets, etc..) in the mangroves on the road into town. We enjoyed our tea on the balcony...lots of fun. Your book was a real help. We hope to return someday very soon!!! — Jennifer & Eralp, Ohio

Last but not least...: I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous week we had at Playasol. We weren't at all ambitious, and mostly hung around close to 'home'. It was Holy Week so the beach was delightfully busy with Mexican families on holiday, enjoying sun, water, and each other--a lovely carnival atmosphere that added to our enjoyment. And, how nice it was to be in a place that felt like a home, not a sterile rental. Although we didn't end up making use of them, it was nice to have all the books and movies etc. around. And only once before (in Britain, no surprise!) have I rented a place that came complete with a tea cozy! It's clear that this is a home to you, and we're glad you're willing to share it. — Alison & John, Minnesota

Why Bruce chose Puerto Morelos

When we thought about a place to retire to, we each made a list of our favorite destinations and Puerto Morelos topped both of them. That made up our minds to buy here.

Great realaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Playa Sol complex before and had to come back. This unit is great for 4 or 5 adults and has everything a visitor would want. Great kitchen if you would like to do some of your own cooking or many great restaurants close by. This unit sits on the third floor on the beach side of the pool. View of the ocean from the front balcony. If you are looking for a quiet place this is it, clean and the grounds are impeccable. Lots of places to rest around the pool if one does not want to walk 200 feet to the beech with the best snorkeling around. Did I mention snorkeling! Great area to just walk right out and see hundreds of fish and occasional turtle or spotted ray, and you don't need to hire a guide or boat. Although they are close by if you would like to go out to the reef. CeCe the property manager is always a close call away with any concerns you may have regarding your unit.

My family enjoyed our stay very much! The kids loved the beach and the outings we went on.

  • 5 of 5

It’s a nice place to stay, in a nice town. My spouse and I stayed at the same complex several year ago, and chose the location for our first time traveling with our kids out of the US. Definitely worth it!

Great location, condo and view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was exactly as advertised and we had no issues finding the unit (even though we arrived really late). We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years and had great weather. The condo was perfect for our family of four.

We enjoyed morning walks on the beach, swimming in the pool and ocean, scuba diving (we used the dive shop right next door), and we ate out most evenings. Breakfast was usually at the condo, lunch could go either way.

The maids were great and were in and out in no time. We loved getting the towel animals everyday. Cece was great and made sure that we knew we could contact her if we needed anything. We didn't need anything, but saw Cece around the complex regularly.

We'll be back!

The condo is lovely. Gorgeous view, quiet and well laid out. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this property. It is in a perfect location and has one of the nicest beaches in the area. All the staff is very helpful, and the whole property is very well maintained. The pool is great. Having a top floor unit provides good air flow as well - we didn't turn on the air conditioning at all. We would stay again, and highly recommend this property.

Car: not necessary

If you're into wet-tee shirt contests and loud parties, this is not the place for you. Puerto Morelos is a laid-back fishing village with an appealing mix of Mexican, Canadian, American, and European residents on one the Mexico's best beaches!

Our location offers easy access to the Maya ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum, Ek Balam, and Coba. Other itineraries can include the colonial city of Valladolid, the island of women, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, or the flamingos of Rio Lagartos. In PM you're close to fun shopping and enticing nightlife in Cancun and Playa del Carmen but away from the noise and bustle of those crowded tourist attractions. Waterpark and nature attractions of Xcaret, Xelha, and Xplor are within a half hour's drive.

Beachcombers will enjoy long walks on deserted beaches or swimming and snorkeling the colorful reef just off our shore. We have such good snorkeling that the reef has been declared a Marine National Park.

Other Activities: Parasailing, Shopping, Boating, Wildlife Viewing
