We booked this property for one week for our family vacation. Overall the condo was as advertised. When we arrived we were very pleased with every aspect of the condo. The bottom bedroom was huge and had 2 beds with awesome mattresses. Very comfortable. There are 2 bathrooms both with showers which was a plus for our group of 6. Upstairs is the kitchen equipped with everything you could possible need. Plus a second bedroom , half bath , living room and a flat screen tv. The balcony offered a great view of the beach with crystal blue water. The condo itself was a very short walk to the pool area and the beach itself. Which made it convenient going back and forth. It's located right in the middle of the hotel zone. Close to all clubs and restaurants in the area. Security is there 24/7 which made it safe for all. There is a little convenience store in the complex which made it nice for quick beer runs or snacks for the kids. When we arrived we stopped at Walmart and stocked up on groceries for our stay. We cooked several times in the well equipped kitchen.
Overall we were very very pleased with the whole condo. It was truly as advertised and then some. And while the Villas Marlin itself is showing it's age , Shelley's condo is very well maintained and one of the better kept ones there.
Finally the beach in front of the condo is very very clean with crystal blue turquoise water. When we return to Cancun we will most definitely return to this condo.
