Property description

2-Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Grand Luxxe Suite including free WiFi, 2 Massages and 16 Rounds of Golf per week!!! (Golf course on site, so bring your own clubs, or rent at resort) Be as active or as lay-back as you wish. Also includes flat-screen TV's. Excellent restaurants on site, or shop and cook, your choice. Major shopping in Playa Del Carmen, less than 1/2 hour away by taxi or shuttle vans at resort entrance.
Large resort with access to ALL facilities, including MANY swimming pools, one exclusively for Grand Luxxe occupants. Major work has been done on the beach, and piers have been added for EASY access into the water for refreshment or snorkeling. Cirque du Soleil show opened in November, 2014 at extra cost. Show updated for 2016. Occupancy may be split as 1-bedroom 1 bathroom (lockoff), and 1-bedroom 1.5 bathroom with living room, full kitchen and dining area, private soaking pool on spacious balcony.
If you prefer Nuevo Vallarta on the Pacific side, same package, (golf, WiFi and massages) and Puerto Vallarta shopping close by as well. Beach here is already usable.
Sorry about the pictures, but nearly everything we take has family, and we don't want to bore you with those.

Other Amenities

  • FOR THE RIVIERA MAYA LOCATION: Several locations to experience ziplines and cenotes (fresh-water sinkholes), which are found throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. Such diversity of activities that one visit leads to another and another. Try ALLTOURNATIVE for your first stay. They put together excellent experiences for first-time visitors. We love the Coba tour. They have bicycles and bicycle 'taxis' at the site. It saves a lot of walking and makes it much more enjoyable. From the top of the pyramid you can see the rain forest for miles. FOR THE NUEVO VALLARTA LOCATION: Concierge at the resort can schedule a variety of tours, including ziplines. Boat charters, both sail and power, are available from the Puerto Vallarta (PV) Marina. At PV pier, boat tour to Los Arcos (arched islands) is great. Purchase bread before you go so you can feed the fish there. Quite a variety, and you can swim with them too. (Barter for the rate you pay. It varies by how 'rich' you appear to be.) ENJOY...moreless

Car: Recommended

If you love snorkeling, don't miss Xel-Ha (pronounced shell-hah). It's a fresh-water river that runs into the ocean. (A floating bridge keeps you from going too far.) Check out the LIVE CAM link attached. Many enjoyable activities, in and out of the water. PLUS, all you can eat and drink is included in the admission price!!!

For a beautiful traditional Mexican folkloric show, don't miss Xcaret (pronounced ish-ka-ret). It has an underground river; animal displays including monkeys, deer, puma, even a butterfly pavilion; a skytower and one meal included with admission. You can even go for the evening at a reduced rate and take in the show. We highly recommend that!

Do you enjoy Cirque du Soleil? The theater is part of the resort, on the inland side of the highway. Make reservations and the resort shuttle will take you right under the highway! Very nice restaurant there too.

There are other shows at the resort as well and displays throughout the week, including a buffet extravaganza on Thursday nights. And if you want local artistic creations, displays are set up some evenings right at the resort by the Mayan Palace Pool. We appreciate their 'no-pressure' approach.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: This is our yearly family vacation location, but we have extra weeks that we don't use each year, so they are available for the vacation of your life.

Why Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
It puts other resorts to shame when it comes to service and quality of the food and facilities. And if you want room service, it's available 24 hours a day!!! NOTE: Unit is only available by the week. Friday to Friday, Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday. No 'extra days' at a per-day rate. Not our rule, it's the resort's rule.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Be out your door and on the golf course in less than 10 minutes. Now how often can you do that?
