"We had a wonderful time at Villa Marlin in unit #209. The owner was great to work with, and very responsive to any questions. This was our first time in Cancun, but won't be the last. The condo worked perfect for our needs. We had 8 people and was very comfortable. We really liked the location of the unit. Just steps from the pools and the beach (softest sand I have ever felt). The front door of the condo has a keypad, so no keys. This is very convenient, we could be at the pool, and quickly run back to the kitchen for snacks or a drink refill. The complex has 3 pools, plenty of room for everyone. The security is very good, and their are lifeguards for the beach. The condo is well furnished with the basic necessities, coffee maker, toaster, blender, plates and utensils. The cookware is a bit limited, so don't plan on cooking large meals. But there are many great restaurants very close(La Distileria is just across the street, I would highly recommend going there). There is a washer/dryer in the unit, so no need to pack too heavy. There are also ample beach towels. The complex and the unit are a bit dated, but very well maintained. It is comfortable and safe, ideal for families not wanting 5 star accommodations but a nice, clean place to stay. We enjoyed it very much. The Kukulcan Mall is across the street from the complex. There is a place to exchange money, several shops and Soriana grocery store. We visited there several times. There is also a small convenience store in the condo complex that is good for ice, drinks & water. We went to La Isla Mall several times. It is a kilometer north on the main road, about a 10 minute walk. We felt very safe walking, there is ample security everywhere. La Isla is a very upscale mall, but has several affordable restaurants that overlook the lagoon. Many will give you free drinks for eating there (first round). There is also a movie theater there that we visited. It is very affordable, we paid $28 USD's for 8 people, and $16 for snacks for everyone. We would also recommend visiting Aquaworld. They have many water activities there. It is about 2 KM south. We took the bus and was there in about 5 mins. The buses are reliable and cost 10 pesos per person. Cancun is a get place to visit. Villa Marlin and unit 209 is a great place to stay while you are there. You won't be disappointed."
