Enjoy paradise in this newly renovated luxury condominium, steps from the beach, professionally designed and decorated, and ideally located in Cancun's hotel zone in the Villas Marlin Condominium complex.
This charming villa is modern and cozy with a flair of the Yucatan and designed for your enjoyment, comfort and convenience. You can admire the view of the sea from the living and dining areas, kitchen and bedroom.
The Villas Marlin complex has 3 pools (including a kids' pool), whirlpools, mini market, laundry service, tennis court, and 24-hour manned security with gated, controlled entry and a very friendly staff.
The Villas are located in a quiet area directly behind the upscale Kukulkan Plaza shopping mall. The famous 'La Isla' Shopping Village is a short walk away. This huge, unique, 'open air' mall offers a large variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, a movie complex , aquarium and a food court overlooking the lagoon. You are only steps away from bank, restaurants, taxi stop and the bus stop used by most tourists.
Renting a car is not needed -- taxis are readily available, and the bus service is excellent, will take you anywhere you want to go for a small bus fee.
We are an American couple who fell in love with the beauty of the Caribbean sea and the white, soft sandy beaches of Cancun. My husband recently retired, and I am an Interior designer. After spending several winters in Cancun at the Villas, we decided to purchase a villa in 2013 which we completely renovated. We are sure you will enjoy staying at our villa as much as we do.
For the last few years my husband and I (from the East Coast of Canada) travel to Cancun to meet up with my brother and sister in law (from the West Coast) for a couple of weeks that I like to call "well wasted". We have stayed in this condo twice and we will likely be booking again. The new market in the mall across the street was such a convenience. Condo is modern, well maintained, fairly well stocked with dishes etc. Beds are comfortable. Cleaning lady is friendly and does a great job. The upstairs bedroom is small and that bathroom is very small but truthfully, we don't spend a lot of time there so we didn't really care. When taking into consideration that this is waterfront property in an excellent location : bus stop 1 minute away, outdoor mall 10 minute walk away, mall cross the street where you can buy booze and food, we were very happy staying at this condo again this year.
This condo provided everything we needed for an extended stay in Cancun. It is well maintained, nicely decorated and has sufficient utensils, glasses, dishes, cookware, and towels. The beds were very comfortable - firm mattresses. We had some minor problems with the hot water heater and leaks in the upstairs bathroom which were serviced and repaired within hours of contacting the owners. The housekeeper is very friendly and went out of her way to assist us with acquiring an internet connection for our laptop. The Villas Marlin property is very clean and safe. The poolside concession stand provides good light fare and drinks at a reasonable price. The new supermarket in the shopping mall across the street is an added convenience for buying supplies if you want to cook in. Overall, our experience was delightful and we definitely recommend this property to other renters. The owners are exceptionally nice people who will make sure that your stay at their condo is a true vacation with no worries.
This condo was exactly what we needed and was just as advertised, right down to the lovely photos. It's appointed beautifully yet with practicality for a rental property (e.g. you don't have to worry about breaking the fine crystal). The unit was clean, comfortable and showed pride of ownership. The proximity to the beach made lazy days easy. The owner was very accessible via e-mail and most helpful. The Condo's 'user guide' was full of great information, including fantastic restaurant recommendations just across the road.
We are shameless 'special need' foodies. This makes eating out for every meal a challenge. Being able to shop and cook for ourselves 80% of the time is the only way we can travel like this. The condo's kitchen was aptly equipped. The condo made family meal time with our adult daughters far more relaxed and enjoyable than if we'd had to depend on restaurants 100% of the time. Compared to a hotel, the cost benefit ratio, on top of comfort ambiance and feeling at home, makes this a slam dunk!
While enjoying our stay in Cancun we went to Chichen Itza and Xcaret (both via rental car). Snorkeling, Parasailing and Isla Cozumel were all accessed via bus and/or taxi. Swimming in the Caribbean was a short stroll from the front door.
We will return.
Loved the villas . Condo ocean view was beautiful . Loved the beach front we got to see the turtles come to shore and lay there eggs every night . Had no problems communicating with the renter or the site manager . If you don't rent a car The mall is across the street from villa . I recommend this villa .
...we could not believe what fantastic apartment was expecting us when we arrived to Villas Marlin after 8 days of road trip through Chiapas. We had an awesome week on the beach, the apartment is amazing, very clean, perfectly equipped and just to enjoy! We were really glad to have had the chance to stay there! Thank you soooooo, sooooo much Gil and Lily, hope to see you soon!
We loved the condo. Stocked with everything we needed and easy access to shopping, dining, and markets. The pool was awesome and so was the beach. We felt safe and secure and the staff onsight was really nice and helpful. We felt like Villas Marlin was the prime spot when comparing to the bigger resorts. We were very pleased! The owner was great to work with and provides a lot of good information about the condo and Cancun! Cant wait to stay again!
