Overview

About the property

Two Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 5)

Our gorgeous, two-bedroom, beach-front apartment is in Villas Playasol, an intimate and secure condo complex located on the soft white sand of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. With an ocean view and just steps from the sea and the biggest blue pool in town, our modern little Mexican hide-away is a wonderful vacation choice for couples or families.

Puerto Morelos is a friendly fishing village with a good mix of European, North American, and Mexican families. The downtown square features a supermarket, gift shops, and a number of restaurants to fit most tastes and budgets. The village center is a short walk away from Playa Sol, either by the street or on the beach.

Our condo features a shady breakfast balcony, pool and ocean view, plus manicured tropical gardens. This is not just a rental property — it’s our summer home! We offer an on-site, English-speaking manager.

Our guests say....: We had a great Mexican adventure! We visited Mayan ruins and Merida, and had great fun at the pool and beach. Your place in Puerto Morelos was the perfect place for us to relax. Thanks for letting us stay, it really felt like home. — Paul, Christine, Emily and Alexis, Illinois

More words...: We really enjoyed our vacation. Puerto Morelos seemed to be the Mayberry of Mexico. It was truly a gem. Quite a variety of dining options and everyone was so nice. The beach was great and very empty during the week, a great contrast to the family action on Sunday. We called Charlie Brown for a snorkel adventure one afternoon, and spent our last day hiking in the botanical garden nearby. We were amazed at the amount of birds (isbis, egrets, etc..) in the mangroves on the road into town. We enjoyed our tea on the balcony...lots of fun. Your book was a real help. We hope to return someday very soon!!! — Jennifer & Eralp, Ohio

Last but not least...: I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous week we had at Playasol. We weren't at all ambitious, and mostly hung around close to 'home'. It was Holy Week so the beach was delightfully busy with Mexican families on holiday, enjoying sun, water, and each other--a lovely carnival atmosphere that added to our enjoyment. And, how nice it was to be in a place that felt like a home, not a sterile rental. Although we didn't end up making use of them, it was nice to have all the books and movies etc. around. And only once before (in Britain, no surprise!) have I rented a place that came complete with a tea cozy! It's clear that this is a home to you, and we're glad you're willing to share it. — Alison & John, Minnesota

About Bruce

Why Bruce chose Quintana Roo

When we thought about a place to retire to, we each made a list of our favorite destinations and Puerto Morelos topped both of them. That made up our minds to buy here.

Condo was in good shape, as was the pool and the Caribbean.

Great location! 10 minute walk to town, where there are great restaurants, both local and high class. Great snorkeling. Love puerto morales.

The condo is lovely. Gorgeous view, quiet and well laid out. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this property. It is in a perfect location and has one of the nicest beaches in the area. All the staff is very helpful, and the whole property is very well maintained. The pool is great. Having a top floor unit provides good air flow as well - we didn't turn on the air conditioning at all. We would stay again, and highly recommend this property.

Great location - beautifully decorated and well equipped condo

  • 4 of 5

The Playasol condo development is a very nice location a few minutes walk from the town square.

The outdoor property is beautifully maintained and the pool is spotless thanks to the tireless work of the maintenance crew.

This third floor condo was well equipped with all the household requirements such as coffee maker, toaster, blender - a functioning pair of scissors would be the only thing I could think to add.

We never did get the dvd player to work in the living room but we only tried once and it may have been an issue with the dvd of which there are many to choose from along with a huge selection of books that I added to when I'd finished by beach reads. There was a flat screen tv in both the living room and main bedroom. Wifi internet strength was great and easily accommodated our 4-6 devices.

There's air-conditioning in the unit worked well (3 units) but being on the 3rd floor you could hear other people's roof units through the night.

The beds were hard for us but we do prefer a plush mattress.

This is a lively family oriented condo development with many larger groups during our stay. The pool was always active and from opening to dusk then again after dinner. There are many lounge chairs and a private section of the beach if you wanted to use it. We just headed straight to the water - we were there Easter week and on the weekends it was busy with many local families but we could always find a spot. During the week it was far quieter.

Our unit had a safe but all the lights were on and I was concerned we might lock our stuff in it so all 9 days it remained safely in the unit. There was never an issue with anything going missing. We left cash out and all of our electronics along with ID etc while we headed to the beach and the units received housekeeping services and there was never anything missing.

Cece is the onsite manager who is American and absolutely fabulous. She is readily available to solve any issues and a pleasure to deal with.

The main picture is a bit older as the trees have grown but you can still see the sea from the 2 small patios (each is just about big enough for 2 chairs).

This unit has beach towels, some toys, beach chairs in it for you to use but I would recommend your own goggles or masks.

Over all this is a beautifully appointed unit that I wouldn't hesitate to stay in again. Being on the third floor it is not really suitable for those with mobility issues. It was easy to communicate with the owner. Enjoy!!!

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo from Bruce and June Conord for the month of February. I could not have been more pleased with everything. The owners were great to deal with, and were very attentive to all my needs. The condo is beautifully decorated, and the entire property is very well maintained. With the location right on the beach, and a short walk to the town square, this vacation could not have been more perfect.

This place has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners really have thought of everything. From beach chairs and toys to kitchen equipment to rainy day activities. It was all there. We took full advantage of the kitchen and cooked at least two meals each day. It was nice to have the condo cleaned daily as well. We had two days of rain but were able to keep entertained with the netflix, DVD's, puzzles, and books available to us. Cece the property manager is very nice and helpful as mentioned in other reviews.

Another selling point for this condo is the location. Walking to town was so easy even for my 7 year old and slow moving mother in law. We did not rent a car the entire stay and never felt the need to do so. Also loved that the beach and pool are right at your fingertips. We have stayed in large all inclusive resourts before and walked much farther to get to the beach (without a view of it from our room) than we did in PlayaSol. Each day we would load up the beach chairs, cart, cooler, sand toys, and head to the beach for the day. There we would set up a spot and play all day. We brought our own snorkel equipment and snorkeled every day. We saw many varieties of fish right off the shore. Usually by evening time we were tired and hungry. We would then walk into town in search of some place good to eat.

The property is clean and well maintained. The pictures listed on this site are accurate. Only negative I can think of is the balcony is very small and to see the sea over the large palm trees you must be standing up. Not a big deal but worth mentioning. There are plenty of beautiful sea viewing spots from the grounds of PlayaSol other than the balcony.

I would definitely return to this place and recommend it to anyone interested in Puerto Morelos.

Car: not necessary

If you're into wet-tee shirt contests and loud parties, this is not the place for you. Puerto Morelos is a laid-back fishing village with an appealing mix of Mexican, Canadian, American, and European residents on one the Mexico's best beaches!

Our location offers easy access to the Maya ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum, Ek Balam, and Coba. Other itineraries can include the colonial city of Valladolid, the island of women, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, or the flamingos of Rio Lagartos. In PM you're close to fun shopping and enticing nightlife in Cancun and Playa del Carmen but away from the noise and bustle of those crowded tourist attractions. Waterpark and nature attractions of Xcaret, Xelha, and Xplor are within a half hour's drive.

Beachcombers will enjoy long walks on deserted beaches or swimming and snorkeling the colorful reef just off our shore. We have such good snorkeling that the reef has been declared a Marine National Park.

Other Activities: Parasailing, Shopping, Boating, Wildlife Viewing
