About Maralyn Elliott
I AM A BEACH LOVER. CANCUN HAS BEEN MY DESTINATION OF CHOICE FOR OVER 30 YEARS. THE WATER IS MAGNIFICENT AND THE SAND IS SO WHITE AND COOL ON YOUR FEET. WE LIVE HERE SIX MONTHS OF THE YEAR AND ALWAYS ON HAND IF YOU NEED ANYTHING.
Maralyn Elliott purchased this Villa in 1991
Why Maralyn Elliott chose Zona Hotelera
I HAVE TRAVELED THE WORLD AND BY STAYING AT THE OMNI HOTEL I DISCOVERED MY LOVE OF STAYING AT A VILLA WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS. THAT'S WHY I PURCHASED MY VILLA 20 YEARS AGO AND LIKE TO SHARE IT WITH THE VACATIONERS WHO ARE LOOKING FOR A HOME TO STAY IN.
What makes this Villa unique
THE OMNI IS SITUATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HOTEL ZONE. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SETTING THAT IS WELL MAINTAINED. THERE ARE 3 SWIMMING POOLS AND 2 HOT TUBS. ONE OF THE HOT TUBS IS ON THE BEACH AND IT IS SO MUCH FUN. WE HAVE THE LARGEST BEACH IN CANCUN AND YOU CAN WALK FOR MILES. I HAVE AN OUTSTANDING CHEF THAT WILL COOK BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER FOR YOU FOR $120 A DAY PLUS FOOD. HIS FOOD IS EXQUISITE. HE IS ABLE TO COOK SO MANY CUISINES. HE COMES WITH HIS SON AND THEY WILL COOK THAI, CHINESE, JAPANESE, ITALIAN, FRENCH, MEXICAN AND EVEN AMERICAN. HIS ROAST TURKEY, LOBSTER BISQUE, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE ARE SUPERB. HE BUYS ALL THE FOOD FOR THE MENUS YOU PLAN, MOSTLY ORGANIC. THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IS BRINGING THE WINE TO DINNER. OR BRING IT TO LUNCH AND DINE ON OUR BEAUTIFUL TERRACE OVERLOOKING THE POOL.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Vacation in Paradise
We had a great time! The villa was the best one in the resort. Perfect placement with the pools and facilities. We hired the private chef (Elias). He was great. Anything we wanted he prepared and it was AMAZING! The housekeeper (Ines) kept the villa immaculate. The villa is a short taxi ride from anywhere you want to go. Or, you can ride the bus up and down the hotel zone for $1 each ride. The concierge (Fana) was on the spot. He arranged everything we asked for and provide recommendations for activities. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay. Thanks Maralyn
Outstanding place in Cancun. Best family vacation ever
Outstanding. Beautiful villa in perfect location. I recommend very highly.
Absolutely everything we asked for!
I don’t know where to begin with the accolades of positive comments I have in my heart amd memory bank. This house is filled with love, run my a amazing team of humans that really care and assist whenever asked, and sometimes when not asked. Marilyn has created a magical space and we are so fortunate to have had our wedding there. We had 8 of our closest family and friends, on the beach. It was wonderful to have us all under the same roof, we definitely bonded and are closer for it. Martin, our chef, prepared the most delicious cuisine, you can taste the love in his food. Ines is a lovely housekeeper, with a smile that would light up the darkest of rooms. Everything in the house was clean and comfortable.
The resort was nice, we were able to go into the pools, walk freely among the resort and beach access was minutes away from our porch. We ordered our own bar of alcoholic delights, and played bartender ourselves. We didn’t miss the “all inclusive” experience- we just walked into our kitchen and made our own drinks. Marilyn has plenty of beautiful pool friendly chalices for your spirits, and they are allowed throughout the resort.
The resort is on the busline and only 8-10 minute taxi into Cancun Excitement like Coco bongo night club where Jim Carry’s movie “The Mask”, was filmed. Plenty of shopping and sightseeing. The resort does have “vending” evenings where local vendors come in with their treats to sell. Be mindful that many of the finds offered are available in town at a much lower price. The tile painter is one of a kind artist and a great treat to bring home.
Overall we were treated with royal standards and with kindness. We will never forget this trip and look forward to coming back!
Just returned from a fantastic time at Maralyn’s villa. It was perfect for our group of three families of 11 people, with enough room to accommodate more as there were pull out sofas that we did not use and a couple of beds could have fit another person. Our beds were comfy, the villa was well maintained, very clean and spacious. It’s location on the resort was perfect, only steps away from the pool and the beach. Maralyn was also an absolute pleasure to deal with!
Fana was very friendly, helpful and available for all of our needs. He arranged our transportation to/from the airport, to the Tulum Ruins, and Cenotes excursions. He also arranged our parasailing as well as a personal chef and daily housekeeping (includes laundry)!
Chef Martin was amazing, a definite highlight of our stay. When we arrived he had dinner started and had picked up groceries that we had requested for our stay. His food was fantastic, everything made from scratch and very delicious! His homemade chips, guacamole and sauces were incredible. The rate of $120 USD/day for 2 or 3 meals was very reasonable (cost of groceries extra). Definitely a better decision than an all-inclusive or eating out.
Overall it was a great family experience and have nothing bad to say. I would recommend Maralyn's villa and it's services for any large group!
SORRY I DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE TO WRITE YOU SOONER. YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WERE AMAZING!!! I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU HAD A WONDERFUL STAY IN MY VILLA. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE GRACIOUS COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR STAY AND MY TEAM. YOU ARE SO KIND. IT WAS ABSOLUTE DELIGHT TO GET TO KNOW YOU AND HAVE YOUR FAMILY SPEND THE HOLIDAYS IN MY VILLA. YOU ARE WELCOME BACK ANYTIME!
Great vacation at great price
This was our family's first experience with non-all inclusive accommodations in Mexico and it felt risky. How would we eat? How would we drink? Where are the grocery stores? We don't speak Spanish! It all worked out just perfectly and the vacation was great.
After sending our deposit to Maralyn, she passed along contact information for Fana our local concierge. Fana was great. Fana arranged our airport transports, deep sea fishing trip, daily chef, daily maid service, scuba and offered to help with more but we wanted to try somethings on our own. Before leaving, we sent Fana a grocery list of things we wanted in the frig. We arrived at the resort and Fana was waiting for us to let us into the villa. In the villa, we found Chef Augustine cutting up tomatoes and avocados and making fresh tortilla chips! Amazing. The rest of the trip was just as great.
VILLA - Great location in the resort. 3 separate bedrooms. Clean especially with Ines taking care of the place. She would arrive around 10am and clean until 3 or 4pm each day except Sunday. She also helped us with laundry. The Omni is an a great location as well. Across the main street there is a small pharmacy and grocery store. The city bus stops right out front and one comes by every minute or so. Our only complaint about the Omni (nothing to do with our villa) is the smoking policy which apparently is that smokers can smoke anywhere.
MEALS - In advance, we had arranged to have Chef Augustine prepare dinner each night we were at the villa - best decision ever. Chef Augustine prepared all dinners, got all the groceries, served and cleaned each dinner. He prepared extra of each meal and cut up extra fruit each night to get us through breakfast and lunch until he came back the next day at 3:30pm to start the evening dinner prep. Best $60/night ever spent to have Augustine prepare dinner. That does not include the $30-60 for the actual groceries plus the nightly $10-20 tip. (we never how much to tip). In total, we probably paid on average $120/night for dinner for 7 people ($60+40+20)
ACTIVITIES - As mentioned previously, Fana setup our deep sea fishing and scuba through AquaWorld. We caught 2 sailfish and 4 bonitos. Chef Augustine cooked up our bonito the day we caught them. We spent a day at Explor and loved it. Omni is a major resort so all exclusions make a stop for pickup/drop off.
FINAL WORDS - Loved it. When we come back to Cancun, we'll book again.
