I just came back from a wonderful week in the condo. I was there with my family and it's a perfect size for 4 people.
Transportation was really easy-- just walk two blocks to the main road where there is a bus stop and a taxi stop. Though it's certainly in the Zona Hotelera, you are spared from the craziness of huge hotels, loud clubs, and drunk tourists. However, if that's what you want, it's an easy 10 minute bus ride away. It's great to have the comfort of a fully-equipped kitchen, and also nice to have a big mall a 10 minute walk away when you want to go to a restaurant for dinner.
Take literally 10 steps out of the condo to get to the pools, and 20 steps to get to the beach. It's perfect! The condo has beach chairs,an umbrella, and even boogee boards to complete the beach day experience.
The only bummer was that the ocean view from the balcony was obstructed by the roof and machinery of the condo right below/in front of us. You can still see the ocean (a beautiful assortment of blues!) but you cannot see the beach. The other difficulty-- not to be blamed on the condo, only the location-- was the difficulty in buying food for the kitchen. Because it's in the Zona Hotelera, there are no large supermarkets around so you have to either rely on small convenience stores or go to Cancun town to do big grocery shopping.
Other than that, it is truly a wonderful condo. Classy in style, with all white walls giving off a large and open atmosphere. Everything was extremely clean. Having free wi-fi was a necessity for our family to get our work done, and the wi-fi worked perfectly.
We got to get out of the city to see some of the surrounding areas-- it is absolutely worthwhile. There are underground lagoons and rivers you can go swimming in, and many remarkable Mayan ruins to visit. Since the condo is right next to the main road, it made getting out of Cancun simple. I definitely recommend the condo for everyone-- beach bums, Cancun clubbers, nature lovers, etc etc. It works for all!

Owner's Response: We are glad you found all in order. We will pass on your remarks about the condo being extremely clean to our maid who continues to work very hard at her job not only when renters are there but for us as well when we live there. Our favorite part too is that it is just steps to the pools and the ocean. When we bought the condo we traded off some obstruction in view to get as close as possible to the beach and the water.We were happy to hear you made such good use of the kitchen and found it well equipped. I love to cook when we visit as well. Thanks again for staying with us and we are happy you and your family had a great time.
