Beautiful property-beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in Jaime's property during our recent 5 night stay in Cancun! For our family, it was the perfect combination of access to resort facilities (beach towels, lounge chairs, hot tub, private beach, etc.) without the cost of all-inclusive food/drink. However, the option for purchasing the all-inclusive option was there if we wanted it (by the meal, by the day, etc.). The view was spectacular, and the condo was decorated with many artistic touches (wood carvings, paintings, marble throughout, etc.) which made our time escaping from the heat of the day very enjoyable. There is plenty of room for 7 persons, accommodated by the king size, full-size and 2 pull-out beds found in the master bedroom and one more bed in the small studio room upstairs. We utilized the kitchen every morning for breakfast and every evening for "merienda" and light dinner, and ate our main meal (usually lunch) out at restaurants. It is well-stocked with plates, pots/pans, microwave, toaster oven, filtered water dispenser (very important!) and a full size fridge with ice maker. There are a few restaurants that are within walking distance, but most close early around 6pm or so. We took taxis for some of our sight-seeing excursions and rented a car one day for a day trip to Chichen-Itza. Jaime's advice and recommendations on how to see Cancun and the area from an "insider's" perspective was invaluable and helped us maximize our time and budget. It is not like the Zona Hotelera (Hotel Zone) where you have one hotel after another, and everything looks just as if you never left the U.S. This condo is located in/near Puerto Juarez, which is about a mile from the ferry to Isla Mujeres and does give you more of the feel of being in Mexico. It is quiet and very family-oriented. The only inconvenience we found was proximity to the grocery store, which was not within walking distance. There was an OXXO convenience store within walking distance, but it was not as well-stocked as a regular grocery store. We made 2 trips to the Superama (Walmart Neighborhood Market) to stock up on groceries, once with Jaime when we first arrived and the other during our time with the rental car. Having the car was very convenient, but I don't think it necessary for your entire stay. Jaime was a great host and was very attentive to all of our needs. He was very professional and made sure we were taken care of at every moment. Thank you Jaime for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful Stay in Cancun in a Fantastic Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our first visit to Cancun where we stayed in Jaime's penthouse suite for eight nights. We are a family of five with three girls ages 13, 11, and 7 years old.

First and foremost, we are extremely grateful to Jaime and Juanita (housekeeper) who were the perfect hosts who truly cared about your well being. We were fortunate enough that Jaime was here when we checked in and he gave us a great overview of not only the penthouse but the resort as well along with useful local information. He checked up on us several days later which turned out to be timely as one of my daughters got sick and he sent over Juanita with medicine and was very helpful to help her recover. With Jaime, you not only get a great property but a host who truly cares about your family.

About the property. It was so great to have so much elbow room to unwind after a busy day and to have so many great spaces in the penthouse. Having a teenage daughter, she really appreciated having her own private space upstairs. I loved waking up every morning and watching the beautiful sunrise over a cup of freshly brewed coffee on the terrace overlooking the ocean. There is also a small table with a great view of the beach and the ocean as well. We all appreciated the free WiFi as we were always connected in the PH.

About the resort. We only did one day of all-inclusive as it was quite pricey. However, we thoroughly enjoyed having dinner at the Ostras restaurant and a full day of activities that included the Waterpark, sea kayaking, and paddleboarding. We also took advantage of the flexibility of using Jaime's VIP PH which allowed for purchasing dinners individually rather than committing to an all-inclusive day. We did the Michael Jackson impersonation dinner show which far exceeded our expectations. Strongly recommend. The beach at the resort is below average compared to the gorgeous beaches at Isle du Mujeres and the hotel zone beaches. However, the waves are very benign and safe which is ideal for kids and Jaime's VIP PH gave us access to the VIP Beach section which had the best beach furniture and is located right below the PH. Very convenient!!!

About local activities. Strongly recommend spending a day at XCaret for families as we had a memorable day particularly the Underground River, Mayan ceremony show, and the Spectacular night show (recommend adding Dinner option as it was great). Playa Norte beach on the Island was our favorite beach.

Great for a family!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Jaime's property a few weeks back. The layout was really nice for a family. In the master bedroom, there's a king size bed as well as a queen size bed. Each bed also has a trundle bed, if you needed to fit more people. The master has a master bath as well as a nice vanity area to get ready. I thoroughly enjoyed the sunrises from the balcony of this master as well. Jaime went above and beyond by baby proofing the property for us, which we really appreciated. The upstairs has kind of a twin size bed in the loft area that my tween daughter stayed on. She said it was really comfortable. We also brought my dad along, and he had the upstairs bedroom, that also has its own shower and on suite. Overall, if we were bringing the kids again, I'd definitely recommend this place! The only thing I didn't like was the beds; they're pretty hard and not very comfortable. One thing I also didn't know until we arrived was that it's actually part of All Ritmo Resort. I was under the impression it was separate but it's actually part of the hotel.

Owner's Response: It is noce to hear that you liked the pro´perty inspite of the " hard beds" . Actually our bed natress are the standard hotel matress , that most hotels in Mexico use.It is trues that this are not as soft as most standard beds in USA , but they are not the orthopedic relly hard beds. They correspond more to the healthier European standards. Besides the property provides memory foam pillows for more comfort , that even 1st class hotels in Mexico do not provide. It would be very nice to have matress "menu" for the different guests or needs, but not even the most expenisve hotels have this choice. Regarding the location of the unit inside the resort , this is decribed as in the most tranquil corner of the resort. Being inside a resort -in the most trqnquil corner - has beides tranquility many advantages such as access to the amenities of the resort (VIP beach- gym- sun deck, pools, 24 hours security and having staff for reapairing any issue that may apear at the property.

It's like staying at a King's condo!

  • 5 of 5

Superbly decorated and appointed. Lots of space and great amenities. Jaime, our host was very kind and attentive not to mention a really nice, knowledgeable man. It's a great location for peace and quiet but not too far from Cancun Centro and shopping. The beach was clean and the VIP section had all the latest sun-tech. I'd recommend staying here if you want to experience some European charm.

Charming Penthouse in Peaceful Area - Part 3

  • 5 of 5

Road Trips: Go to Chichen Itza if you want to see an amazing example of Mayan ruins…. leave at 6:30 a.m. and arrive by 9:00 cancun time… but alas, 8 Piste time! (They are on central time and Cancun area is Eastern time zone.) Recommend getting there at this time because it was incredible to have the park almost to ourselves… and before the hoards arrived, the hot sun blared and the vendors came out in full force. We did this right… thanks to Jaime’s advice. Then, go to Valladolid on your way home. Stop for lunch at Cenote Zaci…. an amazing Yucatan lunch overlooking cenote…. and they let you go to cenote via the restaurant for no charge. Beautiful!! Perfect for a refreshing swim after a hot morning! Loved everything about it. ALSO… You must go to Isla Mujeres. Charming little island. Easy to access via the Puerto Juarez Ultramar ferry. Go early to mid-morning so the lines aren’t long to park for ferry. If you aren’t parking, it is probably a bit easier. Buy tickets and catch a ferry that depart every 30 minutes. We chose to taxi to Garrafon de Castilla hotel for $5 total. Paid about $3 US for beach club access… chairs, facilities, umbrellas, etc. Amazing snorkeling right off the beach. We brought our own gear, but you can rent if you need to do so. The open-air restaurant there was amazing. Great food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. And… feed the iguanas your left-over tortillas. We caught another taxi to Playa Norte for sunset…. beautiful. Looked like it was busy but cleared out when we were setting up. Right across street is a downtown area… we had an incredible dinner at Stingray… great service… the best of the trip… and the steak tacos were incredible. Ferry back to mainland around 10 p.m. Our THIRD road trip was to Akumal Beach to swim with sea turtles and manta rays. We arrived around 9, parked, rented a locker at Lol-Ha bar and headed out to swim with the turtles. You must swim quite a ways from shore…. so life jackets are definitely recommended. You don’t need a guide. We saw turtles everywhere. A little choppy that day… but so fun. Lunch by the beach at Lol-Ha was nice. It was the most “americanized” of the places we dined. Of course, we weren’t in “hotel zone”… so that wasn’t surprising.

Overall: We will return. Loved it. Jaime thought of everything… even a cooler for us and fresh jugs of water! Oh… and the sweet maid, Jaunita… she was like the Mexican grandma I never had.

Charming Penthouse in Peaceful Area - Part 2

  • 5 of 5

Eating/Cooking Areas: The kitchen was european in style… two mini-fridges, panini maker, toaster, a microwave/convection oven, stovetop, large sink and small two-person table. It was perfectly fine for our needs. We had breakfast at the house all six mornings. Cooked two lunches… quesadillas and sandwiches. Cooked two dinners… steak tacos one night and chicken tacos another. We dined out the other meals… because we took three day trips and it made more sense for us. The large “american” fridge is located on the enclosed terrace… but it is mirrored to capture the views. Ha! There is a large 6-8 person dining table just outside the kitchen. We had every meal at that table and it was a great spot for cards after sunset! A 4-person bistro table is located on the little enclosed porch.

View/Location: LOVED being away from the bustle of the hotel zone. (Hotel zone is just too miami/vegas for us.) You can literally see Isla Mujeres from your porch. If you are standing on your terrace, you see Isla in front of you. To your left is the marina hacienda del mar… which houses yachts and catamarans, (A blast to watch coming and going!) To your right is the resort, All Ritmo. If you look down, you see the VIP beach which has amazing beach beds which are included with your stay, but off-limits to the resort crowd unless they are time-share owners. We had a beach bed every day… always an opening. Also down on the beach… just to the right is the volleyball court. Our kids played volleyball at 3:00 every day with guests and staff… they played for hours. It was a really fun atmosphere. The location of the home is technically housed on All Ritmo property… so you have full use of those amenities if you want them. Our kids didn’t play at the pool… because they were too enamored with the beach. We had lunch one day at the resort (you can buy a meal pass for the day or just one meal.) It was so-so… nothing spectacular. I was SO happy we had our own kitchen… it was absolutely perfect for us.

Nearby: Grocery store was in Cancun… a Chedraui was not far from the home. We loved that experience. It was a blast shopping there! Don’t expect anyone to speak English… and don’t expect English signage. My college Spanish classes paid off at last! The Ultramar ferry terminal was just minutes down the road toward Cancun. Highly recommend going early… and spending a day on Isla Mujeres. There were two restaurants right down the road just past the
