Condo was Fantastic it is a dream holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Chi’s condo for a month in 2015 and now for two months in 2017 and our time there was fantastic. The condo is directly on the oceanfront with breath taking views. You wake up in the morning to see a spectacular sunrise to start with and your day just gets better from then on. The condo is very well equipped for spending a week there or two months. The area is very safe with plenty of nice local bars and restaurants should you want to go to them. You can purchase all of your grocery needs at the local super market only a 15 minute walk away. Chi’s second floor condo has direct front access to the pool 20 steps away and a good beach a mere 100 steps away. You will have loads of fun around the pool and beach area. We will return again, thanks Chi.

Owner's Response: Repeating guests can't be wrong. This retired couple rented our condo for 2 months and posted such a positive review. This is the perfect condo for you to relax and explore. Look no more.

Great property - very secure. Unfortunately, the beach is far from great.

  • 4 of 5

Villas del Mar 2 has more pluses than minuses. We highly appreciated the excellent security in the compound as well as the amenities at walking distance. The complex is beautiful, with a great and ocean views & is well maintained. Great pool. The apartment, #207 was very comfortable with but a few defects that could easily be fixed: air conditioning in the main living area was rather weak; the television is dated and the sound erratic. Also the owner could invest in a decent frying pan.

Our main disappointment was the stony shallow beach and poor swimming outside the Villas. Main advantage of Villas del Mar is the safety.

Wonderful beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo very much. Clean. Nice kitchen, well equipped. Good size bedrooms with own ensuite. Plus laundry room and extra bathroom. Great place for 2 couples or a family. Beach front view, short and easy access to beach and snorkelling. (Best snorkelling is straight out from the Omni hotel, a very short walk or swim away). Owner and management company ready to answer any questions. We definitely would stay here again.

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and well equipped. All the workers are very nice. It's within walking distance of anything you may need. My ONLY complaint is that the pool was FREEZING and the oars for the kayaks are tough to track down. Owner is very responsive.

Owner's Response: This condo is in a perfect location - close to everything. It has spectacular views. Look no more. This is the best condo in Riviera Maya. (1) pool is not heated. pool temperature is about 72F - 75F. (2) sometimes irresponsible people did not put back the oars of the kayak. we'll be watching this issue. By the way, kayak is only available from December to April.
