Wonderful Home • Outstanding Service • Bring Earplugs

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home, and we hope to return. The home is beautiful, and the master bedroom would alone make a very nice hotel room. The view was awesome, the deck was spacious, and we loved that the deck rails had plexiglass so that we could enjoy the view while being sheltered from the wind. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen is enormous and well stocked.

We generally really liked the location. The beach is beautiful - and although they’re continuing to experience seaweed issues, they have folks out there working hard to clean it up. We were often the only people at the lovely pool, and we enjoyed lounging at the beach club directly to the north of the property.

We’ve rented homes on HomeAway and VRBO many times, and although we usually have positive experiences, owner Rodolfo was probably the best owner whom we’ve ever dealt with. His rental terms are really convenient, he’s incredibly responsive, and he was very accommodating. Likewise, staffer Angelica was wonderful. She made a great meal for us on the night that we arrived, and we had leftovers for two additional days.

The only word of caution that I feel compelled to share is that we encountered more noise from the snorkel business directly to the south of the unit than we ever would’ve expected. The business was the site of a wedding and reception during one night, and in the master bedroom, it felt like we were right in the middle of the action. The disco lights shined through the windows, and it felt like they had speakers set up in the room. To get some sleep, we had to move into the bedroom on the other side of the unit. They’re also apparently expanding their operation, because there was construction (and jackhammer noise, etc.) throughout each business day. That isn’t a dealbreaker for us, and we’d definitely return despite the noise. But if we’d known, we would’ve been better prepared to deal with the noise.

We rented a car, and we’re glad that we did. We didn’t see much taxi traffic in the area, and the lobby was never staffed with anyone who could’ve called a taxi. So, it would appear to be inconvenient to rely upon taxi service from the property. We had a nice experience with America Car Rental at Cancún Airport.

Fantastic retreat and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time. The apartment is spacious, luxurious and was equipped with everything we needed for a nice, relaxing vacation. Rodolfo, the owner, could not have been nicer. He warned us in advance about some remodeling going around the apartment complex and offered a significant discount to compensate us for any inconvenience. The location of the complex is perfect - right on a beautiful, very private beach, but just a short drive or taxi ride to all stores and a charming town of Puerto Morelos. The building also provided the drinking and cooking water for our entire stay. The ocean front balcony and the view from every room are to die for. Very relaxing and enjoyable getaway!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation with our three adult children was wonderful. The condo is lovely with a beautiful view. There was plenty of room for the five of us to have privacy when we wanted. The large living room/dining room/kitchen area was a great place for us to gather together playing games, eating, and hanging out. The restaurant recommendations Rodolfo made were excellent. We loved going to the supermarket in Puerto Morelos. The condo's location was convenient for our day trips to Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Tulum, and cenote hopping. Rodolfo was very responsive to all of my contacts with him, which I truly appreciated.

The property was beautiful with amazing view of the ocean, it was more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, so much room for everyone to enjoy time together and then have their own space with the 3 bedrooms. When you look out over the ocean, with the wonderful breeze every day and also have a beautiful pool where we were the only ones it is so very relaxing. We had friends staying at Azur just down the beach so our teenagers would go hang out with them anytime they wanted, no one cared. Everything we needed was in the condo and it was wonderful to have Angelico come in every other day to clean, change beds and towels.The owner told us she was also a wonderful cook and could cook a meal for us We had her cook a dinner for 13 people, it was amazing. She did all the shopping and we reimbursed her and of course paid her a very reasonable amount. Everyone who works in the condo was so helpful. We chose to not rent a car so we would just ask the guard at the gate to call us a cab and within 10 min it was there. We had a couple of items that we had issues with and the owner had Carlos there within an hour so we hardly noticed. The only thing I would say that since its next to Snorkeling Adventures, if they are doing outings they start the music quite loud at about 8am so the master bedroom gets to enjoy it. We were up by then most days so it did not bother us. We enjoyed going to the grocery store in Cancun and Puerto Morelos for what we needed for meals and ate at Puerto Morelos for dinner or lunch quite a few times, which was so much fun. In the evening the town square comes alive with locals, a flea market and people just sitting around socializing. Loved our trip, Cancun, Isla Mujeras, Playa Del Carmen and especially Puerto Morelos,, loved the weather and loved the property.

Large 3 br with awesome ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a huge updated open kitchen and an outdoor dining table that has the views everyone dreams of. The 5 of us would stay there again. Private parking and gated community was nice but not needed. Nice pool to hang out at with rope suspended hanging beach loungers. For light control and privacy remote control metal hurricane blinds or remote curtains. Plenty of people watching to do on the upside...but means some noise from people having fun. Nice sandy beaches that has sea weed picked up daily by machine that grooms beach. Snorkeling is available by boat about a mile out on the huge reef. The views on Rodolpho's condo are really amazing!
