Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Bathrooms sleeps 8-12

Hi everyone, my name is Tim Miller. My brother and I purchased in Cancun back in 2004. We love it here! We used to have property in Coco Beach but when we found Cancun we sold everything and bought here to stay. There is no place on earth like Cancun. The beauty of the Caribbean waters is unmatched worldwide, the beaches are pristine, and the wonderful people of the area is the real difference maker. The locals are so happy and so humble, and so thankful to have your business and be of service to you and your family. Over time, my family came to know many wonderful people here in Cancun. If you have never been to Cancun, you will absolutely love it here!

Penthouse #2701- 4BR-4.5BTH - Approx 3,000 sq ft including terraces

Penthouse #2701 sits on the corner (there are only 4 units on the top floors, one on each corner) of the central tower, on the 7th floor. You walk in and you have the living room, dining room, powder room, kitchen, big terrace,, laundry room and one small bedroom with private bathroom. Then upstairs you have the other 3 master suite bedrooms with king beds, private bathrooms, and hot tubs. The views are of both the ocean and the bay although the primary view is straight away to the ocean. The floor to ceiling glass windows run all the way across the living and dining room to give you an absolutely outstanding view of the Caribbean.

Resort: Yalmakan

Penthouse #2701 Location: Beachfront-7th & 8th floors-2 Story Corner Unit

Resort Location: In the famed Cancun Hotel Zone: Kilometer 19.5 Blvd Kukulkan

Resort Quick Synopsis: Yalmakan is located directly on the beach.

Resort Features: Flexible All Inclusive Option - Pay only for the day(s) you want it - decide as your vacation unfolds.

What makes us a more attractive choice than our competition?

1. When you arrive at the resort you are welcomed by my management staff. Two full time managers take care of only a few units to ensure your service is top notch. You will be assigned one of the two. Either Francis or Abdiel will be there to welcome you, show you around and answer any questions you may have. And how blessed we are to have Francis and Abdiel. You will truly enjoy having their smiling faces there to be of service for you.

2. Francis and Abdiel are not just greeters. They are there for you should you need something. Simply email or call them and they will be there promptly, they are normally already right there at the resort.

3. Our resort has on site maintenance of course. But that is not good enough for us. We have our own full time maintenance man to be there quickly should anything malfunction. I used to hire companies to come out if something like one of the AC's malfunctioned. Not anymore, we have our own on site full time staff.

4. Would you like a an authentic Mexican home cooked meal? How does only $50 for your entire groups sound?... plus the raw cost of the food? That's right, we provide this service with no mark up at all! Enjoy! The service includes clean up after. Why go out to some expensive fancy place when you can dine and be serviced while enjoying the best views in Cancun right there in the penthouse?! anywhere.

5. Would you like a night out away from the children for some adult conversation? We have baby sitting-services that come right to the condo, and they are wonderful people, part of our extended family in Cancun.

6. Want a tip on a great snorkeling experience? A good friend of mine offers his service privately for your group. The private tour goes all day, includes lunch on an island, is totally private to your group, and comes with the best "skipper" anywhere. Going out with Mike is truly an experience. Cost is $65 per person, if less than 6 people minimum price for all is $390.

7. Our resort has a staffed front desk, 24 hour on site security, bell hops, and friendly staff.

8. Advice: Why pay $80 to get into the 2 biggest night clubs in Cancun when I can show you how to get your cover paid, all drinks paid, and VIP service for the same price? This is just one example of several tips that will save you a lot of money.

9. Resort Features: Flexible All Inclusive Option - Pay only for the day(s) you want it - decide as your vacation unfolds.

Other thoughts 1: If you are traveling with small children, you will find a packnplay (play-pen & sleeper), a high chair & a quality stroller on hand. Or, if you would like to enjoy your favorite drinks down by the pool or beach we welcome you to use the special cooler you will find in any of our units. It is on wheels, super easy to take with you and is also very handy as a pool or beach side table. The convenience might only be out shined by the savings on drinks! This item has been pre-approved for use by the resort, when you are staying at one of our vacation rentals.

Other thoughts 2: If you need extra beds, I have found air beds to be most comfortable. We have queen size air beds and linens for same available upon request.

unit upon your arrival.

About what does it cost?

About Tim Miller with Resortcondoscancun

Hello, my name is Tim Miller. My brother and I had previously had property in Cocoa Beach Florida, but when we found the majestic beauty of Cancun we never looked back. The Caribbean waters of Cancun are unmatched in their beauty worldwide. The beaches are pristine with gentle slopes fading out into the water. Beyond all this is the beauty of the people. They are so friendly and humble, and want to serve the guests that they feel honored to have. Its a truly amazing area, we feel very blessed to have found Cancun and the terrific people we have come to know over the years.

Why Tim Miller with Resortcondoscancun chose Cancun

We had previously had property in Cocoa Beach Florida, but when we found the majestic beauty of Cancun we never looked back. The Caribbean waters of Cancun are unmatched in their beauty worldwide. The beaches are pristine with gentle slopes fading out into the water. Beyond all this is the beauty of the people. They are so friendly and humble, and want to serve the guests that they feel honored to have. Its a truly amazing area, we feel very blessed to have found Cancun and the terrific people we have come to know over the years.

And then you have penthouse #2701 itself. Wow! It has outstanding ocean views, outstanding bay views, huge terrace, kitchen, LR, DR, washer/dryer, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, its just wonderful staying here.

When my brother and I were looking we noticed some things about the area.

The strip in Cancun is very busy, this part of the strip where we purchased is more laid back, we are 6 miles from the thumping of the big famous night clubs like Coco Bongos and Dadeos. So very close to get there, but far enough away for peace and quiet. There are a couple of restaurants right across the street, one is my "go to" place called 19.5. The owner's name is Joe, terrific guy. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. They have huge black angus burgers, burritos, a nice mix of American and Mexican food. They serve alcoholic drinks, its very casual and has an outstanding view over the bay, amazing sunsets there too. The other restaurant is called Navios, outstanding food, mid range on price, and open air with private palapas built over the water, just a wonderful ambiance there.

What makes this condo unique

Our resort was completely remodeled and it looks terrific as you can see by the photos! We feel amazingly blessed. I'm confident you will enjoy #2701, Cancun, and the people of Cancun a great deal.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked one of Tim's penthouses (#2701) for my birthday and nothing less than amazing could describe my experience!! The penthouse was clean, beautiful and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Abdiel is the property manager and truly a gem! He was so nice, helpful and available to answer any of our questions. Tim made the booking process easy and always responded to any questions within a timely manner. Tim gave us information and suggestions in reference to excursions, restaurants, airport transfers and even money conversion. I just can't say enough about my experience. I wouldn't think of ever staying anywhere else when in Cancun. I am in the process of booking my next Cancun vacation with Tim. Thanks again Tim and Abdiel! We will see you soon!

Great Accomodations, Great Beach, Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The accommodations are excellent. The wall-to-wall / floor to ceiling windows provide a stunning view. I stayed in to read one morning and, sitting by the windows, felt like I was on the beach. The windows even open to enhance the effect.

The large terrace/patio was great for morning coffee as well as evening meals. We prepared dinner in the well-appointed kitchen a few evenings, and even entertained guests.

We stayed at Hotetur Beach Paradise five years ago, before Hurricane Wilma, and I must say the beach now is equivalent to what is was then. The quality of the beach varies from hotel to hotel, and I feel this stretch of beach is world-class –wide, level and with powdery sand.

This resort is a bit of a distance from the popular activities in the area but the local buses compensate for that. For less than a dollar, a fifteen minute ride gets you to the most popular areas.

The local manager of the property was friendly, attentive and well-informed. He answered all of our questions and advised us on local activities.

I would heartily recommend this Penthouse. It is certainly everything advertised and a wonderful experience.

luxury condo with poor service

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at this penthouse from 8/ 16 to 8/ 21. The views are beautiful and the infrastructure (marble everywhere and beautiful kitchen and jacuzzi tubs) is beautiful, but it was a very, very frustrating experience there. The washer/dryer is broken, there were no soap and very few towels throughout the place and the a/c is marginal in parts of the condo. The master br is great, but the 4th br is very hot. The stove takes forever to heat up- seriously, forever. You can not get towels for the beach unless you take the all-incl option. The space is great however, very large. I would recommend it for large groups of people that are on a budget and don't expect much.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is very nice. I would say it would sleep 7-8 comfortably. I would not say the resort is premium, however. It is a small resort that is nice to spend the day lounging around the pool or on the beach and then go into town in the evening. We originally were supposed to stay Saturday thru Saturday, but had to switch to a Sunday to Sunday stay. Therefore, I just booked a night at the resort itself. These rooms are awful. So, if you stay at this condo, you need to consider the all-inclusive option at the resort carefully. The food and drinks are average, but if you're going to be around the pool or on the beach drinking all day, it's probably worth it just for the cost of drinks.
