  • A nice condo in Playa

    "The unit is accurately described in the listing, and the owner and local manager were responsive to a few very minor issues that came up. The owner’s method of receiving payments directly by Visa is trustworthy. The kitchen is well equipped, the AC was very good, the beds are very comfortable, TV was fine and the wireless internet was the best I’ve encountered in Mexico and about as good as you can hope for there. The location is excellent: a 10-15 min. walk to the beach and 5 min. walk to the many restaurants on 5th Ave, however the best and cheapest were all a block or two off 5th. The nice balcony off the dining area that overlooks the pool was great for morning coffee, but can be a bit uncomfortable when there are people sitting on the balcony in front of it. However the real gem of the unit is the large and completely private rooftop terrace. There are a couple of good lounge chairs, and there is both sun and shade on it virtually all day. The tub on it is a hydro-tub, i.e. a large 1-person bathtub with jets. The pool area and grounds are very clean and well maintained. The pool is quite large and there are 10 lounge chairs around it. We were almost always able to get lounge chairs although a few times it was the last 1 or 2, however we were there in high season when likely all units were occupied. A few more chairs would help but, if worse comes to worst you can always have a dip in the pool and then head up to the private rooftop terrace. Entry requires climbing 2 flights of stairs which might be a challenge for people with mobility issues. The building was very quite, with most of the units occupied by retired couples. There is a large balcony off one bedroom and a small one off the other, however they both look out onto the street and there is little reason to ever use them. This brings up the only real problem with the unit: there is a major construction project going on across the street starting at 7AM. While the noise didn’t bother us too much (mainly because, unbelievably, they were using almost no power equipment) there were a few short very noisy periods. Unfortunately, there is nothing the owner or anyone else can do about this, so check with him on this if you’re sensitive to construction noise. Hopefully this will end in several months. Our electricity charge was US$30/wk, though we used very little AC. My only other suggestion: the small sofa in the living room is in great need of replacement."

  • Perfect!

    "My husband and I stayed in 209 for a week. Location, location, location! Literally steps to the pool and just a few more to the beach. The views from the patio are stunning. Best shopping and restaurants a few more steps away. The condo is quite functional. Its clean and well appointed for a beach condo with all the required amenities like beach towels, blender, new cookware, washer/dryer and WIFI! We'll definitely be back to this unit! We've been coming to Villas Marlin for almost 20 years. This has been one of our favorite condos. For the newbies-Fish Fratanga is one of the best kept secrets on the island. Order the coconut shrimp, shrimp mignon or the grilled fish. You can't go wrong at Lima, LaHabituela Sunset, or Hacienda Sisal. All within a 5 minute walk. The Tequila Grill at Kulkulcan is a great place for breakfast. If you want to venture a little further, our favorite restaurant is Lacondo Paulo in old Cancun where Italy meets Caribbean culinary skills. Not to be overlooked is the guacamole at the poolside snack bar. My husband and I travel a LOT for work and pleasure. Villas Marlin, and now condo 209, is my favorite place ever!"

  • So great to stay with our friends again!

    "This was our second visit to Ken & Joanne's oasis. I can't imagine a better place to base our visit to the Mexican Riviera from. Ken and Joanne (along with Mittens and the Iguana pair living near the pool) warmly greeted us once again, and were amazing hosts. The weather was too windy for a lot of snorkeling, nothing to be done about that. We look forward to our next visit (perhaps in summer to swim with Whalesharks!)"

  • Best Condo on the Beach in PDC

    "We have been to Luna Encantada seven or eight times over the last 11 years since it opened, and in particular have stayed in Unit D-1 most frequently. We have taken friends, family and other times just the two of us. Luna Encantada provides the perfect spot to call home for a week as it is walking distance to anywhere in PDC proper due to it's location on the beach at 6th North. A lot has changed in PDC since our first visit in 2005, the one thing that hasn't is the condition of this property and the helpfulness of the staff once you step foot in a little piece of heaven."
