Beach and pool at your fingertips

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly what we were looking for: we had two adults and three kids 8, 11, 13. It's where Mexicans go to vacation: I wanted my American kids to be out of their element a bit and learn to communicate with a language barrier and this was it. A few people spoke great english, but most did not. Everyone was super friendly and willing to help. The pool was clean and so was the beach. Lifeguards on duty were pretty strict with staying within a few feet infant of him, and not too far out. Being a California girl and triathlete this was annoying, but safety first I guess. We did all inclusive option 2 days through the adjoining hotel so we could get drinks when we wanted to. The bus is a must: Super easy to flag one down to get food or go to shopping. There is nothing close except for a gas station-type store for eggs and milk. there is a great small shop on property for Doritos and ice cream. Security was actively patrolling the grounds at night and asked you to check in when we walked in off the street. I always felt safe. We slept with the balcony door wide open and could hear and see the ocean all night. We woke up to the perfect sunrise on the horizon. WONDERFUL!

A few things to note: This is really two studios that adjoin, and a rooftop terrace. There wasn't a common area for the family to sit and play games except for at the Kitchen table, which was in the same room as the Master bed. The pool closes at 8:00 PM which was a bummer for the kids. They close it and start cleaning it, so that's why it looks so good!

I would definitely recommend this place and I would go back tomorrow if I could.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay, especially with our older kids as they had their own place to spread out their belongings and we could rise and get on with our day well before they were even up. The body surfing and boogie boarding right out front was great, however snorkeling needed to be done farther south and with guides.

Excellent Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with 3 teenagers and found this property to be perfect. We stayed for 1 week and never had a problem with anything. The resort is clean and the views from this condo were breathtaking. From the rooftop terrace you can see both the ocean and lagoon and from the balcony of our room we overlooked the pool and ocean. A/C was very cool, beds were comfortable, kitchen was nicely stocked with pots/pans/coffee pot, etc, bathrooms were spacious and clean. We used the grill on the terrace a couple times and that's a nice place to relax, recharge, and have some lunch. We ate out most every evening, there are a lot of great restaurant choices that are just a bus ride away. This was our first time to Cancun and it was a terrific experience. Carolyn & Alejandro were so helpful in guiding us around the city, mainly to the grocery store and restaurants. The nice thing about renting from them is that they are available and on sight most of the time, we could always find one of them to answer a quick question if needed, very helpful! No complaints! Nothing but 5 stars all the way and we can't wait to get back there, it's paradise!

Perfect condo and hosts for a perfect vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this was absolutely perfect for my wife, 3 teenage kiddos, and I. Wish i had the energy/time right now (nearly on the way out from work) to list all the reasons we enjoyed our 1-week stay in this condo but i'll try to hit the main ones. Important things on my list of needs in a beach vacation condo are a great beach view, on a higher floor, quiet, good A/C, well equipped kitchen, spacious, comfy beds, nice bathrooms, reasonable price, and good managers and/or owners in case something comes up or need info. This condo left a big check mark next to all of the above and then some! Incredible beach view from the balcony and lagoon view from the roof top terrace, is on the top floor far above any noise from below, great fast acting A/C, no extraneous noise to speak of, perfect kitchen to cook just about anything, plenty of room, comfy king size and twin sofa, perfect bathroom, very reasonably priced (i'm not one to like to dump $ like i would have had i stayed in many other places i saw in Cancun), and i just couldn't ask for better managers than Carolyn and Alejandro. One small example is the 2nd day we were there I told Alejandro the only complaint i had was the shower head in the 2nd adjoining room shower and within 30 minutes it was replaced! Their office employees Patricia and Luis are fantastic too! Any info or help you may need from them... consider it done.

This condo/hotel is in a nice quiet location in the hotel zone (southern third) with a fantastic large white sand beach and nice clear blue water. Good sized waves if you want to go out a ways where they're breaking (my son and youngest daugher are daredevils and like that) or smaller ones if you stay near the water's edge (for my kinda timid wife and oldest daughter).

Wish i had more time to write more but believe me, you can't go wrong with this condo and it's friendly, helpful managers.

Owner's Response: We are SO pleased to get this wonderful review. Obviously, John and his family were wonderful guests. Being on site is a big advantage so that we can help our guests if there is any kind of problem, maintenance issue, or just to provide our them with information about tours, restaurants or the área en general. But when our guests write a review and tell us that everything was perfect, that is our greatest satisfaction.

Carolyn and her husband salvaged our latest trip! We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We make many trips each year to Cancun and this unit tops the list thus far!

We had blindly booked another owners unit at Solymar and it turned out to be beyond dreadful. We asked Carolyn if we could look at other units for consideration for our future stays and she graciously accommodated us. It took all of 15 seconds for us to decide to bite the bullet and just rent another unit for the remainder of our stay.

This unit has an incredible rooftop terrace with both ocean and lagoon views as well as a nice second balcony facing the beach. The terrace is a fantastic place for a sunset dinner! A second unit with it's own full amenities is available as an addition to this unit should you need more room. It is very nicely equipped and includes satellite TV and internet (with good speed). The best part - this unit is quiet and peaceful!

Do your research and if you plan to make return trips, ask to view other units so you can see the dramatic difference.
