About Lila Bodnar
Born and raised in Canada.
Lila Bodnar purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Lila Bodnar chose Puerto Aventuras
Fell in love with the wonderful people and beautiful landscape. Puerto Aventuras is also a gated community with security at all times. That in itself appealed to me as I worry about security in different countries.
What makes this Condo unique
Quiet, family orientated resort. Children can play in the pools all day long. Plus there is room to bring the whole family, Mom ,Dad, Grandma ,Grandpa plus four kids or more family like sisters, brothers, in-laws, etc. Or just come as a couple or single with these prices all of you can enjoy this wonderful condo.

This condo was perfect.
Overall, I thought this condo was amazing. Very clean and spacious for our family of six people. It was well equipped, the beds were very comfortable, the cleaning service was a nice surprise... The condo was cleaned once a week and was included in the rate.
The pool here was perfect and well maintained and we enjoyed it every day either before we went to the beach or to a cenote or after to cool off.
This condo is just a1 min walk to the beach, but a better beach is down the road about a mile called, xpuha. Don't miss it!
The location of Puerto aventuras is Central to many things including the amazing cenotes, don't miss these freshwater caverns, they are beautiful, unique, and refreshing. The condo is only 30 min drive to Tulum and other Lagoons and cenotes.
There are also many delicious restaurants here that are reasonable. The shops are somewhat expensive, but you can negotiate everything. Bring your own cosmetics like shampoo and sunscreen as it is very expensive.
The condo has both ceiling fans and air conditioning, which was very pleasant.
I highly recommend this condo, especially for the rate, which was less expensive than most that I found in vrbo and other rental sites.
We did spend the day at xcaret, which was well worth the money. Stay for the show at the end of the day.
The only aspect of this area that I did not like were all the captive dolphins and manatees. It's just not right. Free the dolphins!!!
We were glad to have you as our guests and invite everyone to enjoy the condo and Puerto Aventuras. Along with other activities nearby.
2018 Marina Mia Vacation
This condo was quite spacious and clean and because it is located on the third floor meant that we were able to enjoy the tropical breezes 24-7. Only had a couple of small problems that were looked after promptly. We were disappointed that the rooftop space wasn't really viable as the hot tub wasn't functioning. Spent a lot of time at the pool, town centre, walking along the beach and enjoying the dolphins at the marina.
A suggestion that the table and chairs on the balcony be replaced with a larger more substantial set to enjoy that space.
Thanks for your review. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the condo and Puerto Aventuras. Sorry that you were disappointed that the hot tub wasn't functioning but we are working on getting a new heater just having trouble getting the parts. Hope to have it up and running soon. Will look at new furniture for the balcony thanks for the suggestion. Regards Lila
Spacious and Clean in Puerto Aventuras
We stayed here short-term (7nts) and were VERY impressed with the cleanliness of the property, the professionalism of the transaction, and the responsiveness of Property Mgr. Lila . Weather was cool so can't speak about the pool except it appeared to receive regular cleanings during our stay. We were mostly looking for a home base to come and go from with fully functioning kitchen from which we were able to entertain guests for dinner, the kitchen was GR8 as was the fully opening glass wall to the covered balcony. For non-cooking nights we enjoyed the comfortable walk of 15 minutes to the restaurants around Dolphin Discovery. Massimo's had A-mazing handmade pasta with the purest of seafood sauce, and for a shorter walk Latitude 20 had fabulous margaritas/live music. Oh, and if you could send me some of the croissants from the bakeries behind OXXO, I thought I was in Europe. Nearest beach belongs to a private resort, so don't forget to grab the beach towels which the property provides, always a plus not to have to pack in luggage. At the time of our stay and this review the pictures on VRBO are up-to-date, and did I mention it was very clean?
Thanks for your review. I am always available to answer any questions that any future guests may require. The beach area in front of the all-inclusive next door is also available to the public so we provide beach chairs and towels.
Good place for a family in Puerto Aventuras
We just stayed 5 nights at this Marina Mia condo, and it worked out great for our family. We liked the three rooms and that each of our four kids had their own bed (including the twin bunks). The place was very clean when we arrived, which we really appreciated, along with the big jug of drinking water and some condiments and other non-perishables in one of the cupboards. The washer/dryer unit had just gone out before we arrived and was not able to be fixed until after we left, but we had all packed enough clothes for five days and managed to do without it.
The rooftop patio is a nice feature, though we did not end up using it much. The unit also has a cooler and what seemed to be a decent supply of beach chairs, beach/pool toys, etc. -- and also two sets of golf clubs -- which again are nice features that we did not end up using. The unit had plenty of dishes, silverware, glasses, and cookware for our family as long as we ran the dishwasher once a day. We averaged about two meals per day in the condo.
Puerto Aventuras is a fun resort community with lots to do. The location of this condo is pretty good on the whole, though that probably depends on what you prioritize. It was a brisk 15 minute walk to get to the main area with the restaurants and shops. But only about 3 minute to walk to the lobby of the Catalonia where they could call a taxi for us when we wanted to leave. It cost us 90 pesos each way to go to the Super Che grocery store just across the highway, which we only had to do once.
Being on the 3rd floor it tends to be a bit warmer sometimes than ground-level. With windows open and fans blowing it was usually pleasant enough, we only had to run the AC one evening. But it sits on an intersection of two roads and the muffler-free trucks and motorcycles can be a bit loud, though on the whole there's not much activity on the roads in the community.
Overall, quite pleased with our stay. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable. Our shower was fine in the master, the kids were not so pleased with theirs (low water pressure, especially if used at the same time as ours). The wifi worked fine. Didn't seem to be any satellite/cable TV, but they had a nice selection of DVD's, and we brought a few. The pools on property are very simple, but fine for the kids to play around for an hour or so. We did a day pass at the Catalonia ($50 per adult 11 am - 6 pm, includes one meal). The Omni is cheaper (700 pesos), but farther away.
Thanks for your review. Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately the washer and dryer had to breakdown just as you were arriving but they have now been replaced for future guests. We do have Cable TV but sometimes the box has to be reset but glad you used the DVD selection.
37 Nights at Marina Mia
We stayed at this lovely 3 bedroom penthouse condo in the Marina Mia condominiums in the gated Community of Puerto Aventuras for the second time (the first time being 32 nights in the summer of '15). Again, we had a lovely stay. The condo is roomy, comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the hot tub on the roof, the two beautiful pools downstairs, and the outside shower to rinse sand off our feet before entering the condo. The large patio has an electric grill which we used frequently. We appreciated the weekly cleaning service. The condo is close to a little lagoon which we visited frequently, as well as strolled down the beach in front of the Catalonia. We took a couple 'side trips' and got to experience more of the Yucatan. The condo unit is safe, clean and spacious. It sleeps 8 very comfortably. The linens (including comforters) are kept clean and fresh. We try to be respectable about conserving electricity by not using the A/C when not absolutely necessary.
Thank you for the wonderful review and I was so glad to have you as our guests for a second time.
Everything we needed and more...
My mother, my wife and our two kids (10 and 12) have just spent two amazing weeks in this PA.
This condo had everything we needed to be very comfortable when we were not at the beach or in a nearby Cenote. Actually, this condo is bigger than what the pictures are showing. It is only a 5 minutes’ walk to get to the beach which is what we were looking for.
PA is a gated community which make this area very safe. Never we were worried about our safety.
You will find some very good restaurants in PA. On our first day we were having lunch just next to the dauphins.
Unit was bigger than expected
Unit is comfortable (beds, sofa, etc...)
Walking distance from the beach
Beach gears (towels, chairs, cooler, etc...)
Private SPA on the roof
Lila is very easy to reach and she did respond quickly to our different requests
Thank you for the review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to have you return sometime in the future.
