We are from Kentucky and our favorite place to go for a Vacation or to just Relax and Enjoy the Best Ocean Views and Sounds in the World is Puerto Aventuras. It has been called the 'Beverly Hills of Mexico'. We have traveled to several places around the world and have never stayed at a more Beautiful, Peaceful or Relaxing place than Puerto Aventuras! It is Truely Paradise!!
Kenny purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Kenny chose Puerto Aventuras
We have never been to a more Beautiful, Peaceful and Relaxing place in all of Mexico than Puerto Aventuras! It is also the Safest place we have ever stayed because of the 24/7 Security and everyone entering or exiting must go through a Security Gate and Checkpoint. Puerto Aventuras is the Only Community along the entire Mayan Riviera that is Gated and Guarded 24/7. When we had an opportunity to purchase a Ground Floor, Beachfront, Oceanfront Condo that is Only 10 Steps from the Beach and Only 5 Steps from the Pool we simply could not pass it up.

Nice (ok), with a couple exceptions
Property has a good layout. We are a family of 5 and the space in this condo was perfect for us. The condo had a front patio which looked right out onto the water and was a beautiful view, as the picture suggests. Condo was centrally located to get to various activities in the area - snorkeling in a lagoon, Coba, Xel-Ha, monkey farm, dinner in Playa etc.. Andrew, the property manager, was incredibly responsive and had lots of great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. The pool is, oddly, a little cold, but was a nice respite. It was also nice to be very close to tennis courts, restaurants and take out (the restaurants weren’t stellar but servicable).
The exceptions would be: the broader property itself is a little dated. Probably needs a small face lift (there were three different condos within it that were for sale for what its worth). The beach could be a lot better. It had lots of rocks and a full retaining wall so you needed to walk down the beach a little bit to get to a place where you could comfortably step into the ocean and go out a ways. We had thought we might be able to snorkel within the bay, but the wind was pretty strong the entire time and made snorkeling pretty difficult. (Perhaps the wind dies down later in March). When we arrived, the place wasn’t very clean (bugs). We were told the normal cleaning staff was undergoing cancer treatment so we felt a little awkward about getting too upset about that.
If you are looking for a fantastic beach, I would definitely check out Tuluum. It is a haul to get there, though (and one very small road in and out) so if you want the space and want to be centerally located, this might work for you.
Great apartment, fab location
Lovely spacious apartment, all facilities that you need for a 2 week holiday. It was a little bit ‘tired’ (plumbing, kitchen) hence 4 stars, but nothing serious, and the pool and sea on your doorstep made up for it. Gated community provided a safe environment for the kids and plenty of choice of restaurants to eat in. Thanks for a great stay!
We just returned from a wonderful, seven day stay in Puerto Aventuras and we couldn’t have been happier with our selection! Gorgeous property and amazing location! The condo complex is literally situated a few steps from the pool and the beach. It is also walking distance to a great variety of shops and restaurants (loved Paparazzi--where we we treated to an amazing impromptu opera performance--and Papacito, just to name a few) and just a short drive to Playa del Carmen, Akumal and Tulum (ocean tour of the ruins was so much fun and so interesting!). Booking was a breeze and Kenny was very forthcoming every time we had questions. We really couldn’t have asked for anything more. My only complaint is that we would’ve liked to stay another month! 😊 Highly recommend!
Florence you were a pleasure to hear from and work with! I loved getting your texts of how well you were loving the condo and PA. I would love for you all to return anytime! The complex and condo couldn't be any closer to the beach and pool. Thanks and hope to hear from you again soon! Kenny
Condo was fine. No visitors policy sucked.
As in title. In-laws tried to get in to same complex, couldn't ended up 2 doors down. They were not allowed in our complex according to the condo policy. What???? Not conducive to a return engagement. The condo was fine, no knock on that but no visitors??? Booo.
Craig, It’s hard to apologize for what you were not happy about because we discussed that policy numerous times on the phone and via emails before and after you reserved the Condo. It was made very clear and it is also noted in the Rental Agreement, Rules of the Complex and on the Guest Registration Form that you filled out and agreed too. As far as I know every Complex has that rule. There are 32 Condos in our Complex, imagine if several or all Condos allowed guest to use the Complex common areas during their stay. The Complex would be overwhelmed with Owners, Renters and Guests. The common areas are the size they are based on the amount of condos and occupant limitations for a reason. With that amount of people, and you kept adding more, you all needed to rent a house that could accommodate the amount of family and friends you had there at the same time. If there were not limitations everyone would be complaining how packed the Complex was and couldn't enjoy the common areas. I’m glad to hear you all were happy with the condo. Kenny
Lovely, spacious 3 BR/3.5 bath condominium with layout that allows for privacy and family time.
Perfect place for a quiet, relaxing family vacation in the safe, gated section of Puerto Aventuras. Condo is very clean, spacious, well maintained with ceiling fans in every room. Pool, beach and grounds areas are cleaned daily and so the entire area is immaculately clean and beautiful. Large washer/dryer in unit. Easy walking distance to restaurants and small shops in Puerto Aventuras. Big supermarket (Super Che) is located 10 minutes away by car immediately off Highway 307. Ask Andrew for suggestions. He is very knowledgeable and helpful.
Great place but needs some improvements to make it an outstanding experience
Spacious, well furnished ground floor apartment steps away from the beach, lovely condominium with great pool and grass area, make this apartment well worth renting. However needs some improvement as better cleaning (found mold in the rooms and some cockroaches), the mattresses need changing, and the grill needs some maintenance. Also communication can improve as we arrive with no information on how to enter the apartment and took a few hours to get hold of the administrator, and we were told about having the cleaning lady coming twice during our stay and, in the end, she went only once. Nevertheless, we and the kids had a great time.
Hi Cristiano, thanks for your feedback. I am certain my property manager will address any issues of cleaning and the bugs you are referring to are water bugs not cockroaches. We have the condo treated on a regular basis but sometimes the water bugs still appear as you are on the ocean and have the pool and other condos in the complex they could be coming from. The grill is new, just added it last year but I will ask my property manger to see what maintenance it needs and get it taken care of. I sent you the arrival instructions twice, on June 24th and June 27th, and ask you in the email that you print out and take the document with you that it provided directions to PA and to the condo and how to access the condo. It also had other important info in that document as well. I'm sorry you didn't print it out and take it with you as it would have saved you some frustration. I'm glad to hear you all had a great time!!
