Overview

About the property

You´ll love our condominium, Quintas del Mar. Great atmosphere, it is very quiet and close

& refurbished...

New everything (Almost...) New paint, new bathroom & shower, new TV, & so on...

Keep Reading!!

The common areas are great, 4 swimming pools, large grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs, the beach, and the amazing view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone.

The people at Quintas del Mar are great too, very easygoing atmosphere. Some live there, others come on vacation. All vacationers come back, always! Quintas del Mar is famous for it. Some, a few times a year, others for many years in a row.

Some of us at Quintas del Mar like to get together for barbecues and hanging out at the pool. But if you like to be by yourself, we respect that, as long as you know you are welcome to join us!

Another great thing about Quintas del Mar is you can get up in the morning and step out to go for a jog or a walk while enjoying the view.

It is very close to everything.

It is withing walking distance to a 24 hr convenience store, a small local grocery store and to the ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres. (very beautiful Island).

A couple of large supermarkets are only 5 min away.

Transportation is good and safe. Local city bus around $0.25 USD and taxi to center around $2.50 USD.

If you go to the Hotel Zone you are better off taking the bus, taxi will cost around $9 USD

The city center and the start of the hotel zone are only a few minutes away by transport.

The central bus station is 10 min away. They have first class transport at really affordable prices. There, you can take buses to Playa del Carmen (1:15min), Tulum (1:45min) and many other places.

The airport is 25 min away.

And very close by, you can enjoy luxury shopping, low key, or local markets, cinema, restaurants, snorkeling, windsurf, kayak, many other everything, because like I said before....Everything is close by, Cancun is quite small.

I would say it is perfect for those who want to enjoy the tranquility but still be close to the party scene and more crowded areas in case you want to experience it.

***And don´t forget about the $$$, by staying here you´ll save hundreds of dollars that you can use to do more activities!!

We hope you come stay here, you won´t regret it!

PS. Anything we can do to make your stay better, let us know!!

Beautiful view! Relaxing, quiet, friendly place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 weeks at Quintas del Mar in January 2018. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Many of the people we met come here year after year because it is "away from it all", yet easy to get to restaurants and shopping when you desire. Our unit was on the ground floor, and we loved having direct access to the grounds, pool, and palapa from our patio. There is also access to the water through a gate in the sea wall, or at the public beach next door. If you like to walk, the sidewalks are good, and quite a few restaurants within a mile in both directions. The ferries to Isla Mujeres are also within walking distance. Our unit was comfortable and well situated, and the owners live in the complex and were very accommodating to our needs. We would recommend this property for those who want a quiet getaway and a beautiful ocean view!

Nice apartment, very friendly and helpful people

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Cancun. Lirio, Jean-Pierre and our neighbors had useful hints for our stay. Our personal highlight was the invitation to join them for the christmas party. We had lots of fun and really delicious food. Thank you to for making the vacation really special.

The apartment is in good shape and clean. The location is quiet and about 4km from the city center away. By using the Collectivos, which pass around every 10 Min right in front of the complex, u will be in the city center and ADO stations in around 15 Mins. The ferry to Isla Mujeres is just a small walk of 15 Mins away.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a Wonderful stay at Quintas del Mar. Our hosts Lirio and JP made us very welcome and ensured we had everything we needed. The locals are very friendly and welcoming.

The condominum is comfortable, quiet and well appointed. The bed was firm but comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare meals including preparation and storage items. The only downside was there wasn't an oven but there was a microwave and toaster oven and grills outdoors. There was also bottled 5 gallon water. The bathroom had plenty of space and storage. The shower was roomy with good water pressure but had a slow drain but didn't flood. Also the water temperature would cool off but there was plenty of time for one person at a time.

The air conditioners worked fabulously and all the areas had fans. Also there was a lot of closet, shelf and cabinet space!

The patio off of the condo was perfect for relaxing. It was in direct sun until late afternoon but there are shared pergolas within a few feet.

The pools were nice and clean and not overly chlorinated. They were a little cool while we were there but it was also cooler than normal at night during our stay.

The location of the condo is not in a typical tourist area. It was a 20 to 30 minute drive to the hotel zone beaches and about a 20 minute drive to the hotel zone entertainment area.

The local beach shack type restaurants were great! There was also a Suprema Wal-Mart (small grocery store) a few minutes away which accepts credit and debit cards.

We brought our two small dachshunds with us and they had a blast as well! The Cancun dog beach was about 30 minutes from the condo. The beach next door doesn't allow dogs but is a pretty nice beach! It was a fabulous beach for being steps away

We would love to come back!

Perfect - Views of water everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

For low-key and affordable this is just perfect! Jeanne-Pierre was quick to answer by email and Lirio was our lovely 'info' center! Exactly as advertised you can mingle with great people or be reclusive. Fully stocked kitchen and full internet and free calls to US and Canada is a major plus. We will be back. Thank you for everything!

There are many things to enjoy in our condo. As I said before, the common areas are great, 4 swimming pools, large grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs, the beach, and the amazing view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone.

The people are great too, very easygoing atmosphere. Some live there, others come on vacation. All vacationers come back, always! Quintas del Mar is famous for it. Some, a few times a year, others for many years in a row.

It is very close to everything.

It is within walking distance to the ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres.

Transportation is good and safe.

The city centre and the start of the hotel zone is only a few minutes away by transport. The central bus station is 10 min away. They have first class transport at really affordable prices. There you can take buses to Playa del Carmen (1:15min), Tulum (1:45min) and many other places. The airport is 25 min away.

And very close by you can enjoy shopping, cinema, restaurants, snorkelling, many other things.
