2nd time here and will come again!! (someday)

  • 5 of 5

I traveled last time with my mom and brother. This time it was myself and my boyfriend of 8 years. He loved it and he is a hard man to impress. There were 2 major problems he would complain about 1.) Shower pressure 2.) Wireless internet. I would brush off the internet unless you are going for a relaxing getaway. The location is pretty nice because it is quiet but it does take 30 min to walk slowly to the ADO buses. Which didn't bother me unless it was late and I was tired. But Rocio the manager, is awesome and friendly. She is accommodating and helpful! Hopefully I return someday with my kids! :-)

Perfect little getaway located very near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to anything that you might wish to purchase. Secure location in a very safe neighborhood, directly accross the street from the "cop shop"! We enjoyed great pizza several times at Salento which is less than 50 steps from the front door. Condo is well outfitted and we lacked nothing. We enjoyed our stay so much that we plan to return annually.

Spacious, well kept condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this quiet, well kept, and well furnished condo. Used the pool daily to cool off. After the first day, were comfortable without using the A/C by letting a breeze flow through. The beach is about a 2 block walk away. 5th Ave is also about 2 blocks away. Nice having a night time security guard, keeping watch. Bikes would be handy to have. Taxi charge from Wal-Mart or Mega, is 50 pesos to CTM st. and 10 th ave. But 90 pesos to 5th ave or to the condo. We also road the bus along 30th ave, which varies from 5 pesos to 9 pesos. The blender was handy for making fruit smoothies. The satellite dish had issues a few times, but no big deal. All in all, a very nice stay at a reasonable price. Thanks Helen, for making this available.

A lovely apartment close to many activities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Maya. The property was very well maintained and clean. Loved the decor, too. Manager Rocio was very helpful. People were very friendly. Thanks go out to the fellas at the Italian restaurant next door for the fine dinners and conversation. We loved saying Hi each evening after our days of excursions.

Thank you, Helen, for a lovely, safe place to stay. The pool was very welcoming after the hot days at the beach nearby. We cooked some fish that we caught in the nice kitchen. We had everything we needed.

Although we rented a car, most tourists traveled by taxi which were always right beside the apartments. Restaurants and stores are nearby and take both US and MX money.
