Check each comparable listing closely. I rent only two penthouse condos facing the beach of the Caribbean, not the lagoon, and they are roomy, not a studio, but an upstairs and downstairs living area. They are not a hotel room. Full size condos. I have two condos each can be rented as a single unit for 1 to 7 people, a couple enjoying a honeymoon or second honeymoon, a family or group of friends, or as two adjoining condos for up to 14 people and they can be rented by the night, the week, the month, or longer if you would like. They are ideally located in the center of the hotel zone at the point, called Punta Cancun, where you have restaurants, entertainment, the center of the Hotel Zone Fun Zone. Walk to many interesting clubs and night spots. From the terrace you can look directly at the Caribbean, watch the sun rise over the water, and view directly the oceans allure. There are 2 units with either 2 queen size beds or one king and one double bed upstairs with a shower in the bathroom. Downstairs there is a living room/ converting to a bedroom with a balcony and a sofa sleeper and futon, kitchen and another full size bath room.
The Beach is within a few steps.: The water is inviting and pleasant, warm year round. The sand is powdery and soft. The point has snorkeling along the protective rocks. Mexico has only public beaches here so cruise the coastline without restriction and establish a new beach head every day. Wake up early or stay up till dawn and watch the sun rise out of the ocean from the balcony or from the water edge camera in hand. Within walking distance is a Hard Rock cafe, Hooters, Carlos and Charlies, etc., a Starbucks, shops and mini markets. Excursions can be booked at the hotel, taxis and buses are available outside the entrance, with trips to the Mayan ruins in Tulum and Chichen Itza, golf at Pok de Pok, and the Hilton, with other golf in the area, snorkeling at Xcaret, with a ferry at Playa del Carmen to Cozamel. A boat trip to Isla Mujeres to see the sleeping sharks!
Want to go shopping?: Stroll down the Boulevard Kukulcan to various shops for gifts and remembrances, jewelery, and souvenirs. Take a moment to walk to the Caracol shopping area, stopping for a beverage or bite to eat at the outside restaurants. This multi-level shopping center has many shops with clothes and jewelry and trinkets of Cancun to remember your visit. There are atms and banking facilities here.
Would you like some pampering?: Book an appointment at the pool side spa with Rosie at Salvia for a wonderful massage, have a facial, or get your toenails refreshed. If you forgot to get you hair trimmed you can do that too. Relax by the pool with a tall cool one and regain some energy for the coming evening festivities. Monica provides delicious Mexican fare at the pool for breakfast lunch and afternoon sandwiches, beer and other beverages reasonably priced. Julian provides tours and van service from the condos to the airport and pick ups at the airport.
