About Tim & Deborah Schramko
Greetings: My name is Deborah. My husband, Tim, and I have been traveling to the Cancun, Mexico area for the past 10 years. Although we had been to numerous resorts in the Cancun region, when the LaAmada construction was finalized in 2009, we visited the development and fell in love with the location, luxury & privacy of the prestigious LaAmada community and its world class marina. After several years of dreaming of owning a property in LaAmada, we came upon an opportunity to lease a LaAmada penthouse unit from Alvin Downs, who purchased the unit back in 2008. On the third day of our stay in this amazing LaAmada penthouse, we knew we had to find a way to own this incredible property! Although the property was not currently for sale, after much discussion, Alvin graciously accepted our offer to purchase and we were successful at acquiring this beautiful Caribbean gem! Over the 5 years that Alvin owned the property, he had hundreds of guests from all over the world stay at his beautiful condo and enjoy La Amada as much as we did. It is with open arms and open hearts that Tim and I welcome all past guests back to this slice of paradise, and encourage future guests to consider this amazing experience as well. We are absolutely committed to providing the same excellent service to which previous guests have become accustomed. Ernesto will be continuing to actively manage the property on our behalf, and provide any requested services to make your stay comfortable; including transportation to and from the airport, purchasing groceries and beverages for your arrival, private cooking, as desired, and assisting in any way he can to meet your vacation needs! We are excited to share an amazing part of our world with you! All the Best, Deborah & Tim

Our tour guide Ernesto was an amazing host and he was on demand during the entire stay. The property is really beautiful and looks even better than the pictures!
Beautiful condo, responsive owner, some issues
We had a lovely stay at La Amada! The layout, decor, art, and overall design aesthetic of the condo are excellent. Two separate/private bedrooms with luxurious baths. Fabulous finishes built to high standard, easy garage parking & security. The terrace is amazing! Huge glass doors, nice breeze, and ocean view in the distance. All the “extras” are a nice touch. Deborah's communication was thorough and our deposit promptly returned. Ernesto (on-site manager) was so accommodating and helpful.
I wish I could leave a 5-star review, but we had a few issues during our stay. The beach club restaurant, pool, and entire beach area have a huge construction project underway. It was loud and disruptive (saws, hammers, bulldozers, etc. into the night). No one was on the beach, no beach club services, and no restaurant open. I recommend any future rentals confirm that all amenities are available, especially that the beach restaurant, club and pool construction is actually complete and open. They were obviously behind schedule as of March 2018.
The other issues we had were with broken appliances and older/stained linens. I have alerted the owner and she has said these concerns will be addressed.
The beach itself is nice...sand is deep, nice palapas with quality, padded chairs (though set a bit far from the ocean). Seaweed in the water, high winds, and red flags when we visited in March, so no swimming. Not usually an issue as long as there's a pool available. We found the rooftop pool windy and cold and the lovely ocean view from pics is now obstructed by new construction. So, we took the 20-minute Ultramar ferry to Isla Mujeres and enjoyed the pristine beach there, Playa Norte.
Despite these issues, we plan to return in the future. The condo was that incredible! Deborah is a very responsive and accommodating host. Once the construction is complete and restaurant available, I'm confident it will be a 5-star experience. Next time, we'll arrange for chefs meals well in advance.
La Amada is very secluded, almost deserted. It's great for privacy, but limited on amenities. You cannot access restaurants at nearby resorts without paying a high daily access fee because they are all-inclusive. Villa del Palmar was our best option, besides cooking ourselves. Either rent a car or arrange for transportation and plan ahead for meals. If driving, be careful of speed zones around La Amada and know how to handle getting pulled over (we did).

We are grateful for this guest's candid remarks and are replacing the linens mentioned. The broken dishwasher noted in her remarks had an electrical component on order just the week prior to this guest's arrival. The part was delayed in arriving to Mexico and was repaired four days after this guest departed. As property owners, we acknowledge that things sometimes break and we are expedient with any repairs when these unfortunate issues occur. As well, this guest was advised in advance of her arrival that the Beach Club Restaurant and Bar were being renovated and we offered her private chef services, if desired. The Beach Club Restaurant and Bar were opened 5 days after this guest's departure and the Beach Club pools were filled two days after her departure. Again, although we offer our guest's private chef services, this guest had a family health issue and, due to the uncertainty of whether she would be able to travel until a couple days prior to departure, she did not make these arrangements. As to the seaweed on the beach, this is an occasional characteristic of an ocean and out of our control. In conclusion, we are pleased that despite these issues, this guest was complimentary and would return. We are confident if this guest arrived just one week after the time of her brief 3 night stay, things would have been significantly different. We look forward to her return, as she will find the matters that were unsatisfactory to be resolved. To encourage her to do so, we offered her a complete credit of her 3 night stay on her next visit with us, which was not mentioned in her review. Deborah Schramko, Owner
This was one of the best VRBO locations we've ever stayed at! Deborah was the epitome of the perfect owner. She was constantly in contact with us from the initial interest in booking to the final day. Every positive review previous to ours was exactly on point! Ernesto the onsite property manager was available for every need including purchasing groceries from the onset to any questions posed during our stay. The opportunity to cruise on "The Trilogy" yacht was a dream come true. Patricio, The Captain and Skinny totally made the cruise! We look forward to returning to this location in the very near future, especially with all the ongoing upgrades at the new beach pool/clubhouse and rooftop pools.
We would absolutely welcome Todd and his wife back to our home, along with their family and friends! It is gratifying to us that they had such a wonderful time and we hope they give us the opportunity to be of service again in the near future! Deborah Schramko
Awesome! Relaxing, luxurious & spectacular service!
We are so pleased to have returned to this slice of paradise! Everything was perfect...the penthouse is stunning and the views are truly amazing. The weather was perfect and the surroundings are nothing short of spectacular. Tropical heaven! Can't wait to return to this amazing place soon!
Luxurious accommodations in a private setting
Great property in a lovely setting, the pictures do not do the place justice . The security provided is top notch, and the beach is a short walk away. Anything you are up for is near by, from boating to jet skis, as well as the rooftop pool with its panaramic views. My family of 5 were quite comfortable thanks to the property manager Ernesto. To have transportation and groceries handled for you prior to your late night arrival is a wonderful service that goes along with the property. The owner Deborah was responsive and available , nothing was forgotten as far as kitchen supplies. I can recommend this property to couples or families alike, there is literally something for anyone of any age. Lastly, world class seafood is less than 15 minutes away in Puerto Juárez , unassuming seaside eateries had some off the best shrimp and lobster I have ever eaten. You can also catch a cheap yet modern lift on the ferry to Islas Mujeres less than 15 minutes as well. Great time in the lap of luxury, thanks Deborah!
Most Relaxing Vacation in My Entire Life! Private, Luxurious & Just Steps from the Beach!
I have been going to the Cancun region for many years and decided I would try something out of the crazy hotel zone. The property owner, Deborah, was tremendous in responding immediately to my inquiry about this property and she worked with me throughout the entire pre-trip planning to answer all of my questions and assist in numerous ways to assure that every detail was in place prior to our departure. I never received this level of service before in planning my trips. This amazing penthouse is just a few miles north of Cancun in Playa Mujeres and it was a stunning location, with tremendous panoramic views from the balcony! The rooftop pool was truly awesome, with views of everything in the area. Ernesto, the Property Manager, saw to our every need. He shopped for groceries in advance of our stay and there were two private chefs available to us for special meals we wanted to try. The food was excellent the cost was more than reasonable. It was delivered right to our door. The location for this property is in a private, high end residential community and the grounds are immaculately maintained, secure and extremely peaceful. We had privacy and relaxation that we have never experienced in all the years we have been going to Cancun. We will come back to this property again. During our stay, we also took a cruise on the private yacht that the penthouse owners offer: "Trilogy on the Sea." The penthouse owners gave us a tremendous discount on the yacht price, since we were a guest staying in their penthouse. It was the highlight of our stay! The service of the Captain and crew were beyond my expectations and they planned the entire trip to meet our desires. We had the entire yacht to ourselves! We are pleased to provide a 5 star rating for the penthouse (and the yacht), and highly recommend this vacation to others looking for total relaxation in a luxury location. The cost for the entire trip was significantly less than the all inclusive prices for so much more value! We returned home and are already discussing our next trip back at this place. We have friends who have wanted to come to Cancun for some time and, now that they have heard about the great time we had at this property, they are anxious to join us. The property owners have other units they manage at this location, so we are confident we can get our larger group together at one time at LaAmada Residences. Again, we believe you will not be disappointed if you decide to book this penthouse!
We found Mr. Richards to be an excellent guest and we look forward to welcoming him and his family and/or friends back to our home in the near future!
