Quintana Roo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Our condo is located in the privately-owned condo complex of Playasol in Puerto Morelos. This is a quiet fishing village where couples and families can reconnect and relax. Our ground floor 2 bedroom condo is located just 5 steps from the pool with a view of our tropical gardens and the ocean beyond. Just sit on the patio and watch the children swim in the pool or go down to the pristine beach and play in the sand or calm ocean waters. Older children and teens enjoy deep-sea fishing trips, snorkeling at the marine-protected reef, ATVing to nearby cenotes, ziplining through the jungle, day trips to nearby Tulum, X-Caret, or Xel-Ha, or playing soccer, football, or volleyball on the beach with locals.

Our condo is located just 2 blocks from the town square of Puerto Morelos. Walk to town either via the beach or the street and shop for locally made handicrafts at the artisans' market, have dinner at one of the many restaurants in town, watch the fishermen bring in the catch of the day, see the children play at the park, buy fresh fish at the fishermen's coop, browse the little shops, or enjoy a local festival. And if that is not enough, feel free to ask our onsite bilingual property manager about what is going on around town during your stay.

If you choose to stay home for the day, you can just relax in the pool, read a book under one of the palapas, cook a homemade meal in our well-stocked kitchen, wake up early to see the sun rise over the ocean, and stay up late looking for constellations - all while meeting other guests from around the world. At Playasol, you are bound to make new friends.

Come to relax, enjoy, renew your relationships and go back home with many wonderful memories.

About The Owner

We are a family from the Chicago area who have owned our condo for 11 years. Our five children have loved spending time in Puerto Morelos snorkeling in the ocean, throwing the football on the beach, swimming in the pool, and playing soccer with the locals in the town square every night.

Why The Owner chose Quintana Roo

After coming to Villas Playasol several times with our young children, we decided to purchase a piece of paradise. We have enjoyed so many wonderful vacations with our children who easily consider this home. Come and make memories with your family as well.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is definitely the most family-friendly unit at Playasol. Since our condo is located on the ground floor just steps from the pool, children can safely swim while parents relax on our patio or under a palapa. We provide a variety of pool and beach toys, beach umbrellas and chairs. With no stairs to navigate, our condo is handicap accessible. And the view of the tropical grounds, sunrises, and beach from our dining room or patio table are unbeatable. Come see for yourself...

Excellent Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children (ages 14 and 11) and I stayed at this condo for one week. From the time we landed in Cancun, the trip went beautifully. I'm glad we rented a car at the airport; in combination with the location of the condo, we had access to everything we wanted to see and do. We were met by Cece, the property manager who couldn't have been nicer. The condo was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. We cooked many of our own meals there and had all that we needed. There were two charcoal grills that could be shared by the people in the complex. Being right next to the pool was ideal, and it was never crowded. Loved the iguana! The beach wasn't crowded either, and access to it was right there. The snorkeling place right next door took us out to the coral reef... saw our first barracuda!

Because the condo is not in Cancun proper, it had an authentic feel to it. What an experience for our kids to walk into town to shop at the tortilleria where they could watch the old proprietor and his wife making the tortillas -- or to go to the produce market and buy fresh vegetables, a few of which we couldn't even identify. (We felt adventurous.) I was so glad that we chose to stay off the resort strip so that we could experience Mexico as it is. Of course, the town still has plenty of tourists and lots of gimmicky shops in the plaza, but local culture is all around. Very cool!

My only complaint would be the thin pillows. When we travel, we usually stay in hotels, and I appreciate their luxurious bedding. After the first night, I was fine, but I did miss the fluffy pillow.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed at this condo and it exceeded our expectations! This unit is well designed with an open concept, new tile work and most importantly - a great area just in front to eat meals outside and enjoy the birds and the pool. We cooked most of our meals and the kithcen although small was well equipped. The unit has beach chairs, and beach towels - so easy to enjoy ourselves. The location is perfect - right on the beach , but protected from wind, and a few blocks walk to town square. Playasol is beautifully designed with lots of green space , a beautiful pool, sun and shade. We found the people at playasol very friendly, and the manager Cece very helpful as well. I would return to this place if I could!!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying in this unit for 6 or 7 years and intend to stay there every year. It is a wonderful place to stay with all the amenities possible. The beach is so beautiful it's indescribable, and it's just a short walk to great food. I don't think we've had a bad meal ever. The neighbors are friendly and helpful. I think no one reviews it because they don't want anyone to take their spot next year!

Truly home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth trip to Villas Playasol and I'm sure we will return many more times. Puerto Morelos is a wonderful laid back town with many good restaurants. It is close to many activities, but also is just a great place to hang out. This condo is beautifully appointed and completely updated with a beautiful kitchen and new bathrooms. It's also fun to sit on your patio and meet the many friendly people. I think the beach is the best one in the area.

Wonderful Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

We are staying here now and absolutely love Playasol, Puerto Morelos, and this ground floor condo. I was a bit hesitant because there was only one other review but am so glad I trusted my instinct and went with this one. The condo itself is spacious with two nice sized bedrooms, a beautiful full bath with a nice large shower stall and a small half bath with toilet and sink. The kitchen is narrow but functional and has a washer dryer as well. The living room is small, but lovely and opens up to a nice patio facing the pool. You are steps from the pool and I sat out here until after 6 tonight while my kids played in the pool. The day we arrived, the kids had already asked if we could return to PM and this particular condo next year. We have our own iguana that we have names Jake who lives in a little hole under the pool patio and spends much time watching us and even venturing onto my husband's feet for scraps of food that may be dropped-he really likes chicken. The beach is wide and beautiful and the owner provides nice beach chairs, an umbrella, and a bucket and shovel as well as boogie boards. It is a short walk into town or a 20 peso taxi ride if you are feeling lazy. Housekeeping is provided 6 days a week and is very thorough and friendly. My only caution would to parents who have very young kids-you are right next to the pool and definitely would not want to leave toddlers unattended for even a minute-for us it has been perfect though! Can't wait to come back!

Playa Sol,

  • 4 of 5

Playa Sol,

Two bedroom condo on the ground floor facing the ocean was just as it appeared in the photos. The grounds are beautiful. The staff worked very hard each day from morning to night to maintain the grounds. There was plenty of shade on the property and the ocean directly in front of Playasol was wide and cleaned daily. There were lots of little lizards everywhere and so fun to watch and feed.

The maid staff was excellent. There were no safes in the unit, but it didn't matter we had a laptop, playbook and cash in the unit and nothing was taken or even disturbed. There is a place in the second bedroom if you bring your own padlock that you can lock up your valuables. The maid did an excellent job cleaning the unit and was a wizard at towell art.

Michelle the owner and CeCe the on site manager were excellent to work with. customer service was great.

Pleanty of beach toys, snorkle gear, chairs, child lifevest, beach bag, hats for use in the condo.

The only negative would be if you are a gourmet chef and want to cook large meals. The kitchen is very narrow and really only one person at a time in the kitchen. If you are not there to prepare huge meals, its great to have for breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Thanks so much for sharing your unit with us.

Owner's Response: Please note that we have remodeled the galley kitchen to now be fully open. Because it was difficult for us to manage in such a narrow kitchen, we knew that guests would also have trouble. Everything is now open and easily accessible.
