Excellent property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at this condo. The unit was very spacious. We enjoyed having the pool right outside our patio door so our kids could easily go back and forth to use the bathroom or grab a snack. Our kids LOVED the pool. We've had issues at other rentals w/the pool temperature being too cold, but this one was just right. We also enjoyed the hot tub. The tide pools made up for not having a sandy beach. Make sure you bring beach shoes and snorkel gear. My husband used the golf course one day. He was the only player on the course. There were several people walking on the course (including a guy with a cane), so be careful not to hit anyone! We used the washer and dryer a couple of times. We also liked that we could log in to our netflix account for some tv before bed.

We ate at many of the restaurants by the marina. Our favorite by far was Caleta. We made several day trips from the condo (we rented a car) - Akumal (sea turtles!), Tulum ruins, Tulum beach, and Cenote Azul.

A couple of things we'd do differently - (1) Rent a golf cart. The walk to the marina is nice, but after a long day at the pool our kids barely made it there. (2) Bring more cash. The ATMs were out of money or did not work when we were there. (3) Buy more food at the first run to the grocery store. We didn't want to leave to go grocery shopping once we were settled in and enjoying the sun.

Breathtaking views and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! We hired a grocery delivery service to have groceries for us when we arrived. The inside is spacious and perfect for 2 couples to sleep privately. Lovely community with restaurants, marina, shops and nearby beach. We didn't want to leave. Highly recommend renting golf cart (we did for 2 days) so that you can explore the entire community and get around - convenience store outside the gate very reasonable. The only minor problem we had was that the washer was broken and had to be fixed while we were there, slight inconvenience 2 mornings in a row. We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: John and Cheryl, thanks for sharing your wonderful comments. The awesome view of our infinity pool and jacuzzi hot tub which overlooks the Caribbean sea speaks for itself, you simply can't find a better serene ocean front tropical experience along the Mexican Maya Riviera. However just as important, we credit our top-notch staff members for always providing outstanding service to our guests to enhance their vacation experience, whether that involves a grocery delivery service, car/bicycle/golf cart rentals, timely repairs, or spotless maid serivce. We hope to see you and your family again next year!!!

Wonderful location, terrific views, fine unit

  • 5 of 5

Others have said this, but it's true: The infinity pool is beautiful, and big enough to get some exercise swimming laps; the views from the oceanside floor to ceiling doors of the unit are all about the pool and the just-beyond ocean, really quite beautiful; and the tidal pools (actually swimmable, with stone stair entries, not just wading pools) are pretty unique. The nearest easily swimmable beach (very nearby, at the Catalonia Resort - with a fine and quite reasonable gym, btw) is total sand entry, well-protected, and not too crowded, with an even less busy and quite lovely lagoon next to it.

Tyler's unit feels spacious, and is very comfortable, well-equipped and tastefully furnished. Ceiling fans everywhere. His "welcome guide" has all sorts of helpful info, both about the unit and building and the many attractions of the area. Tyler himself goes out of his way to answer questions before and during your visit, and obviously wants to make your visit as perfect as possible -- a great resource! And Puerto Aventuras, new to us, is quite a lovely place to hang out in, and to base out of as you explore the Riviera Maya. Lots of very good, and safe (eat the salads, don't worry about the ice, etc.), and very reasonably priced restaurants. Only the goods sold in the many tourist stores by the marina are overpriced (and they are way overpriced -- try to bargain, by all means, or buy elsewhere).

Our only caveat -- and I feel it should be mentioned, though it didn't at all ruin our visit: The pool is not small -- and often surprisingly empty -- but there are really only a couple areas for folks to lounge about beside it. One of them is right in front of your small but nice oceanside yard. If there happen to be daily happy-hour celebrants who like that area better than the other one, and are loud about it, and feel like smoking and blowing it your way, you'll notice it, and have to deal with the smoke wafting into your lovely unit. Many folks probably wouldn't notice this, or care, I'm sure.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. Our motto is "to make your dream vacation, a dream come true". All of our guests consistantly rate our spectacular ocean front view of the Caribbean sea and our infinity pool, jacuzzi hot tub, gardens, and other well appointed amenties with FIVE STARS. However, we also know the relevance of adding to the value of their vacation experience by never overlooking the importance of our concierge services. We're very proud of our staff members that always go above and beyond the call of duty to make certain we have "happy" guests. We hope you will return again next year!!!!

Absolutely breathtaking!!!

  • 5 of 5

My adult children and I spent Christmas in Puerto Aventuras and this beautiful condo. The home was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated with the most amazing views right outside the large glass wall of sliding doors. The weather was perfect and we couldn't have been any happier with our stay. We will return and stay at this home. Thank you Tyler for providing all the helpful information on places to go eat and see as well. Best vacation ever.

I'm in love with this place

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you could hope for. A nice kitchen, two nice bedrooms, and an awesome living space. But that's just inside. Outside your backdoor is an epic infinity pool overlooking the ocean, and just beyond that is private beach access. It's not your white sandy beach front, it's something much more awesome. A half dozen tidal pools that have been transformed into natural tubs surrounded by rock paths and crashing waves. Adorned with hammocks and lounge chairs, this incredibly serene backyard makes this place unique from others I've seen in the area. I will be returning for many years to come!

Ocean Front Private Residence
Car: recommended

Besitos del Mar is a luxury oceanfront private residence with an absolutely breathtaking 180 degree view of the pristine, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. If finding a secluded retreat with a spectacular view is a must, then your search is over. Previous guests claim our home possibly has the best view of the Caribbean found anywhere along the Mexican Riviera Maya.

If you're awestruck by the ocean view, wait till you see the posh interior. Expect to be pampered with fabulous appointments and sumptuous furnishings, specifically designed with the comfort of our guests in mind. The open floor plan, decorated in a contemporary motif, provides spacious living and dining areas, and a gourmet kitchen.

Sink into a large L-shaped sofa loveseat while you debate whether to stare at the mesmerizing view of the Caribbean Sea or our huge flat screen satellite TV. Even the most discriminating chef is sure to feel at home in our kitchen, which is designed with a unique island bar that seats 4, opulent granite counter tops, and all the finest amenities you naturally expect. The chic dining area provides comfortable seating for 6.

At the end of the day, retire in our elegant master quarters and lavish in the comfort of a king bed and full en suite bath. The guest chambers greet you with two full beds and its own private bath. Both billets are appointed with flat screen satellite TVs and have large glass doors that open to a cozy terrace overlooking a private water garden and fountain. Wireless internet is accessible inside and out.

To capture the wow effect of the breathtaking ocean view, oversized architecturally designed sliding glass doors stretch the entire span of the villa. You're sure to love the awesome panoramic view of the surf from practically any angle, whether you're relaxing in the living area, sitting down for a meal in the dining room, or entertaining friends in the gourmet kitchen. The glass fully opens to a large covered terrace where you can enjoy grilling your catch of the day while you take in the beautiful sight and sound of the cascading Caribbean waves.

After satisfying your pallet, you may wish to take a relaxing swim. Only two steps off the terrace, wade into the cool, soothing waters of our stunning infinity pool that overlooks the blue Caribbean Sea, where palm trees afford relaxing shade. Then slip into the bubbling, heated waters of the adjoining Jacuzzi Spa. Be careful though, you may find yourself nodding off to the sleepy sound of the ocean surf.

To either side of our infinity pool, beautiful pathways wind through artfully manicured tropical gardens leading you to our sunbathing decks on the ocean shore. Catch a few rays in a lounge chair, a few winks in hammock, or simply catch a breeze in the shade of a Palapa hut. If however you desire to do and see more, we have it!

Close your eyes and feel the sea breeze whisking through your hair as you indulge in a relaxing massage just a stones throw from the crashing surf. Our deck areas host an enormous ocean fed salt water tide pool which is home to thousands of colorful, wild, tropical fish, that are free to come and go with the tides. Spend hours snorkeling or swimming in this protected aquatic sanctuary to view rare marine life only an arms length away. May we suggest you bask in one of our 6 unique Jacuzzi Spas, naturally fed by the Caribbean waters, while tiny Sargeant Major fish nibble at your toes.

For those who wish to venture outside our private tropical retreat, there's plenty to see and do in the town of Puerto Aventuras. The sandy white beaches of Fatima Bay are within a short walk, while only minutes away you will find the San Carlos Marina which is the Port of Call to a host of casual and elegant restaurants, nightclubs, day spas, and boutiques.

Two of the most popular must see venues include Swimming with the Dolphins touring the Aquarium stocked with huge Manatees, Sea Lions, brightly colored fish and a variety of other marine life. If golf is your pleasure, tee-up for an awesome challenge on our beautifully manicured links.
