Tankah Studio Rental Photos and Description
Beachfront Studio - 2 Queen Beds, 1 Bath, Balcony Overlooking The Caribbean Sea
We overlook only the Sea - not the details! Simply put, this is the BEST view of the Caribbean Sea and the Cancun strip that you can possibly get! No property is closer to the Sea than we are! There is nothing between you and the ocean except a beautiful sandy white beach! Your view is 180 degrees of pure heaven! Isn't this the view you have always wanted but rarely, if ever, get? Isn't the sound of the ocean what you want to hear as you fall asleep at night? You won't hear pool noise or restaurant noise from this room!
Welcome to your home away from home! This is NOT a hotel; this is your holiday home. As such, you won't find a hotel lobby or a bell boy. Once you get the key from our on-site manager, and you open the door to your unit, you are 'home!' Welcome! Bienvenidos!
Located in a very private section of Building 4 this CLEAN studio apartment contains two new comfortable Queen size pillow-top beds (sleeps four) with plenty of new pillows. Many Mexican resorts have thin mattresses - some are even on concrete slabs. Not ours! We also provide newer bedding (sheets/pillow cases).
The new granite kitchenette contains a full size refrigerator/freezer, two burner glass top range, sink, new microwave, 12 cup coffee maker, toaster, blender (gotta have one of those!), and water cooler. A new granite breakfast bar provides room to prepare and eat meals, play games, or entertain.
A ceiling fan and newer mini-split air conditioner keeps you comfortable in warmer months, but the breezes from the Sea are fantastic and hearing the ocean's waves at night is the perfect sleep aid.
Clean pots/pans/dishes/cutlery/barware are all provided so you can leisurely eat in while enjoying the best view in Cancun! (If I wouldn't use them, I wouldn't put them out for you to use either!)
A full size George Foreman electric grill is available for use out on the balcony.
A large two-person tiled shower with new shower head, safety handle and shower mat to ensure your safety. Bath and hand towels and wash cloths are provided. A lovely stained glass window adds a quaint Mexican charm to the shower. It creates a lovely glow when viewed from the hallway outside.
We also have for your convenience:
New flat screen cable TV
New DVD player (bring your own DVD's)
New in-room electronic safe
New Sunbrella balcony chairs
Free local phone calls
Laundry on-site (but who wants to do laundry on vacation?)
Two convenience stores (one just below your room) sell bread, eggs, butter, tortillas, snacks, soda, beer, etc., as well as water bottles for your in-room water cooler.
An infinity pool with divided wading section for youngsters is surrounded by chaise lounges and palapas (thatched umbrellas) for those who want shade. The best spot in the pool is at the edge where you can people watch those on the beach and soak in the sight of the Sea and the sound of the waves. You could stay here all day -- and sometimes people do!
An on-site restaurant and bar (pesos or USD only) at pool level serves meals from breakfast to dinner and has a wood fired pizza oven. The restaurant also features a roof top sunning area with a dip pool (meal/drink purchase required). You can see the dip pool from your balcony and at night, it lights up in all different colors creating a nice ambiance. (See my photo.)
A swingset/slide on the beach is available for the little ones.
- The condo offers gated 24-hour security
- Bus access (9.5 pesos per ride or about 80 cents USD) just outside the front gate
- Taxis readily available and can be called at the security gate. (They arrive in 30 seconds or less!)
See our calendar for daily rate and availability. Daily rate includes all taxes/fees. The only extra fee -- if you wish to request it -- is for Maid Service at $20 USD per day required. Most people do not require this, but it is up to you and you might wish to have this service if you are staying longer than a week. Upon arrival, you can let our on-site manager, Carmen, know if you wish to have maid service and which days you require it. (I pay for your exit cleaning.)
An OXXO convenience store across the street offers prepared foods, groceries, beer, snacks, etc., just like back home, although we like to patronize the stores on our property.
Navios restaurant across the street has excellent food and provides a romantic atmosphere with tables out on the lagoon deck. For a more casual and inexpensive evening, 19.5 KM Burger (also across the street) has great Angus burgers, burritos, etc., and also serves breakfast on the lagoon. Don't miss these places for at least one 'sunset dinner!' For really authentic Mexican, El Gallion, also on the lagoon, but to the right as you exit the front gates, is a lunchtime favorite of locals. Here you can eat $1 fish tacos and $1 Corona beer with your toes in the sand, right next to the lagoon. Don't be surprised if a guitar player serenades you here! We can give you more recommendations -- just ask us for our extensive booklet!
We have never had problems with water or food quality in Cancun.
Nearby are some other great restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. The Mayan ruins of El Rey are within walking distance and the new Mayan Museum is also nearby. On the beach you can find parasailing and jet skiing. Other water sports and fishing can be arranged as well. Golfing can be found at the Iberostar Golf Course just down the street. Isla Mujeres is a wonderful day trip that will make you feel like you are a million miles from reality (you can get to the ferry by bus).
The sea turtles (and we have plenty of them!) lay their eggs from May to September. You'll see them swimming in the morning hours after they have laid their 100+ eggs the night before on our beach. The hatchlings start to come out of their shells around August to October and it is great fun for young and old to release the babies into the Sea during the evening hours when they have a better chance of avoiding the pelicans and sea gulls. This miracle of nature is something everyone should see!
I hope I have convinced you to come to Cancun. As you can see, all you need is a bathing suit, beach towel, sunscreen, and a few sundresses/polo shirts & shorts for evening. Even the best restaurants in Cancun allow shorts!
We find this to be a very safe area and we have never had security concerns. Even my 75 year old parents ride the bus at night.
Lastly, all Cancun Plaza units are privately owned, and the quality of each unit depends upon each owner. Some invest in their units (as we do) while others do not. Some owners have turned their units over to rental companies whose standards are not worthy of your hard-earned money.
Read OUR reviews on VRBO. (Note, we are not affiliated with BSEA Cancun Plaza. They are a rental company and their reviews do NOT represent our unit!)
Don't be fooled! You get what you pay for. If you want the BEST VIEW, we have it! We overlook only the Sea -- not the details that will make your stay memorable. Look no further, you have found paradise!
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. ~Author unknown

Guestbook comments from the manager
Your soft powdery sand is so different than many beaches in Cancun - all rocky and sharp - your condo was our home away from home.
Eating breakfast on the balcony, enjoying coffee, catching up on a good book - but your sunrises from the balcony are priceless !
Thank you for a relaxing, safe and spectacular week full of laughter, smiles and - memories that will last a lifetime.
Marien & Kevin Kaifesh
We are from Cleveland, Ohio USA and have two college age daughters (one just graduated from Ohio University and one attends The Ohio State University). We've been married 30+ years and have vacationed in Hawaii, California, Florida, Bahamas, Bermuda, the Caribbean, and many places on the west coast of Mexico, but nothing beats Cancun! It is our hands-down favorite!
Cancun has smooth white sandy beaches, beautiful warm blue water, historic Mayan ruins, fantastic restuarants, lots of activities, and service-oriented locals who are warm and friendly. What more does a person need? Nothing! A bathing suit, beach towel, sunscreen and a few casual outfits is all you need.
We have been coming to Cancun (specifically, Riviera Maya) for 12+ years but could never get a room right on the beach. We were never really interested in 'commercial' Cancun (or at least what we thought was 'commercial'), and we weren't sure about how safe it was. But after visiting my sister's studio apartment at Cancun Plaza, we were sold that Cancun Plaza was for us!
It had everything we needed...transportation, restaurants, ability to cook our own meals, infinity pool, white sandy beach, etc., all with a quaint Mexican feel. We feel safe even on the buses at night. We started looking at several places, but we decided upon Cancun Plaza because of the unobstructed Sea views and how compact the property is. No long walks to get to anything! Oh, and did we mention the view?? Nothing stands between you and the Sea except a great strip of white sandy beach!
We have a sparkling INFINITY POOL overlooking the Sea where you could spend all day just people watching those walking the beach. There is a separate shallow end for young kids and a deeper section for the rest.
There is an on-site restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have a full bar as well as a wood-fired pizza oven. No need to leave the property or cook, if you don't want to.
Location, location, location! You can't beat the 180 degree view of the beautiful blue Caribbean Sea from your balcony. That was the deciding factor of buying here. Some places may have a partial ocean view, or can see a little of the ocean between buildings, but we have THE view! Every day you will say, 'Look at the color of that water!' You will probably say it more than once!
All inclusives are OK, and we have been to many of them on the Riviera Maya, but after a while, it gets boring. You feel like you have to stay on property to get your money's worth. Or you feel that you can't get off the property because you are so secluded and far away from everything that it would be a king's ransome in taxi fares. At mega-resorts, you have to take a trolley to/from the beach or to the restaurants, and heaven help you if you forgot something in your room and have to trek all the way back to get something! Not here at Cancun Plaza! You are just minutes from the pool or beach. Transportation is close. No long walks to get anywhere! Don't waste your precious vacation time walking around huge resorts. Come to Cancun Plaza and relax!
Florida is not always warm and has so many bugs, jelly fish, and hurricanes. The west coast of Mexico has brown sand and the cold dark Pacific Ocean. Hawaii is just too far to get to, and is so expensive! Cancun is everything these places are not! We love it here and hope you will, too!
