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.

Solymar Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! Before we arrived, we stopped at a supermarket downtown and stocked up on groceries, which was a good thing, since the Zona Hotelera has everything except supermarkets. We later found one that had the basics, but it didn’t have any fresh products (meat, veggies, etc.) Solymar has a small gift shop off the lobby of the hotel where we found matches for the gas grill. The store is open until 10 at night, but closed on Sundays. The condo, the beach, the pools were all what we had hoped for, and we found that the on-line photos represented reality. Our hosts, Carolyn and Alejandro, and their staff were all happy to please, bilingual, and best of all, available at all hours. When we had a question, they got back to us right away, even if it was after business hours.

Thanks Carolyn and Alejandro. We can’t wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Susan and Gus, and their daughter were delightful guests. My wife and I are very pleased that they enjoyed their stay with us. We will definitely get one those long gas lighters for the grill, so our guests won't have to go hunting for matches to light the grill!! We hope to have the opportunityt to be their hosts on a future occasion. Alejandro and Carolyn

Great time in Solymar

  • 5 of 5

We had made arrangements with Carolyn and we were planning to stay the weekend before Thanksgiving. The week before we were to arrive Carolyn sent me an e-mail asking me if I would like to move to a different condo specifically a villa for the same price of the condo that we had agreed to rent. We just about jumped out of our skin and said yes. We ended up staying in villa 14 and had an awesome time. Carolyn and husband were very friendly and helpful. Next time we are in Cancun we will be calling Carolyn. Thanks so much for everything.
