Wonderful Beachfront Condo
Submitted: March 7, 2013

This is the first time my husband and I have ever been to Puerto Morelos or this condo. It was GREAT. Clean, spacious, comfortable, tastefully decorated and RIGHT on the beach. Also, this condo is on the first floor so you can just walk out from the condo's patio directly to the pool and beach. I brought a beach bag but it was useless! It took 30 seconds to walk back into the condo if I needed to grab something. This was super convenient. The condos on the upper levels seemed to have nice balconies, but you to get to the pool/beach, you'd have to walk down a few flights of stairs that dropped you off in the front of the condo, and take the path to the back of the condo. Not a huge issue, but again, so convenient to have your kitchen/bathroom/bedroom right there.
The condo had central a/c but you get great cross breezes if you open the kitchen window and patio sliding doors. The whole condo appears to have been recently renovated. Kitchen had all the important utensils and equipment like a toaster, coffee maker, blender. The is NO cable TV in the condo, just two TVs w/ DVD players, and a bunch of DVDs in living room. Not being able to watch the news felt a little weird, but, it was great to disconnect. Great WIFI connection in the room and a binder w/ lots of useful info for the rental office, property manager and a phone number for the local taxi. The kitchen had a large spring water bottle container with spout right on the counter which was useful. So you don't have to purchase any extra water at the El Martin grocery store in town.
It took 15 minutes to walk into Puerto Morelos. The path starts off on the beach and ends on the main road into town. No sidewalks but drivers were always considerate to pedestrians. Plenty of nice restaurants to try. We enjoyed Pangea, Los Pelicanos and El Niche. A cab ride back cost 40 pesos, we'd give a 50 every time. It was a 4 minute ride back to the condo, again, very convenient and affordable. There were plenty of cabs lined up ready to go in the town center.
We really hope to visit this beautiful, quiet condo next year. The owners were great about emailing me back whenever I had questions in preparation for this trip or during our brief stay in Puerto Morelos.
