Overview

Puerto Morelos Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This luxury penthouse suite is acquitted with its own private rooftop terrace overlooking a gorgeous, un-interrupted ocean view. Not only can this penthouse room boast its own private rooftop but also includes its own secluded hot tub. This ultimate getaway room is located in the newly built condominium of Palma Real; which is situated directly on the beach in the small charming town of Puerto Morelos. Palma Real offers the complete quiet, relaxing, worry-free vacation package as it is not a place for wild crazy parties. If you are someone who enjoys both laid back activities, which can be found in Puerto Morelos and the more exciting fast paced activities, then you'd be pleased to know that Palma Real is a mere 30 minutes North to Cancun and another 30 minutes to Playa del Carmen in the South.

Puerto Morelos is a relaxing laid back town where you can savour the stunning views, sample local cuisine, tour markets, visit popular shops and chat with the outgoing and friendly local Puerto Morelos residents- all at your own leisurely pace.

Contrast to Puerto Morelos and its easygoing activities, many places surrounding Palma Real and its sweet little town offer up more exciting upbeat things to do. Some of these things include exploring the cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Other things include: diving (explore the great Mayan reef found in the midst of the Riviera Maya), horseback riding (for those daring people who enjoy the sensation of freedom and the wind in their hair), sailing/boating, championship rated golf courses, archaeological sites (for those who like a little mystery), and of course an opportunity to take a fantastic shopping experience.

The condo itself has been outfitted with new furniture in a tasteful, chic and comfy style that would please any personality.

This penthouse room offers up all amenities such as Cable TV, Wireless Internet, 24-hour security and an elevator.

So no matter what you choose to do, explore the outlying towns, lounge by the pool, shop or sunbath this penthouse suite is nothing short of amazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Hughes family,

Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo on such short notice.

Your unit is absolutely amazing and far exceeded our expectations!

We were greeted at the door by Carlos and checked in with a very thorough orientation.

Additionally, Carlos offered excellent suggestions for dining and other activities.

He repeatedly checked in us during our stay, making sure we had everything we needed.

The location is absolutely perfect and provided the serenity my wife and I were looking for.

The facilities are perfect, neighbors were great, and the accomodations provided the extra space a teen needed.

The property is very well maintained and is a great alternative to the masses in a hotel.

the atmosphere is very family friendly and we felt very safe.

Puerto Morelos offered such a warm hospitality and we definitely look forward to returning.

Your property is in great hands with Carlos and what you have is a gem!

We wish you the very best and hope this spot is available to us in the future!!

Cheers!!!

Top 10 Reasons Why This is the Best Condo to Stay at for Your Mayan Riviera Vacation

  • 5 of 5

10. This beautiful condo at the Palma Real in Puerto Morelos is not part of an all-inclusive resort. If you value a lovely, quiet, stress-free place to call home during your vacation you’ve found it here.

9. It’s conveniently located. About 30 minutes after collecting your bags at the Cancun airport you can be stepping into your condo.

8. Palma Real is well-maintained and secure complex, just three floors of 6 units each wrapped around a pool area, with the east end open to the beach. During our vacation in early December 2015, we found it quiet and the residents friendly.

7. This gorgeous unit is situated on the top floor at the end overlooking the beach. Both bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. The deck overlooking the pool contains a spiral staircase up to the stunning, private rooftop patio. The two bedrooms each with a bathroom were roomy and comfortable. The open living and dining area was chic and spacious with an entertainment centre. The kitchen was large and well appointed with everything we needed to prepare meals, except food, which can be purchased in Puerto Morelos.

6. The rooftop is where we enjoyed early morning coffees watching the sunrise, sunbathing or reading during the day, lazy hot-tub soaks anytime, cocktails to toast the setting sun, or watching the canopy of stars at night and counting shooting stars streak across the sky while we solved the world’s problems in great conversation.

5. The sandy beach at the foot of the condo was very nice for sun bathing, reading in the shade of the palm trees, beachcombing, and swimming to cool off.

4. The condo is a 15-minute walk, or 2-minute cab ride, from the Puerto Morelos town square.

3. Tired of all-inclusive resorts and the hustle of larger well-known Mayan Riviera destinations, this balance between being an authentic community and having delightful restaurants, bars and shops waiting to be discovered, is perfect.

2. There is a helpful list of recommended restaurants in the condo to begin your dining out and entertainment adventure, but we also recommend you talk to local people, and other visitors for their suggestions. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Puerto Morelos is a place to recharge your senses.

1. Layla Guesthouse Mayan Experience and Cenote Tour is our favourite local adventure and highly recommended for its authenticity.

If your Mayan Riviera vacation expectations mirror ours, your can't beat this condo, or Puerto Morelos!

Perfect for our family. Carlos (property manager) is a true gentleman and an incredible person!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, w/4 kids (9,11,12,14) stayed at Palma Real in this fabulous penthouse condo with a rooftop to die for. The description on the VRBO website was accurate and the negative reviews (if any) of this property should be taken with a grain of salt. Upon our arrival we were met by the owner and the property manager Carlos. The welcome and hospitality received was second to none. We booked very last minute (24 hours prior to arrival) and given the last minute we did have to wait a little until the evening to gain access to the condo (cleaning). Although more troubling for our children, Mike (the owner) was extremely gracious and we were able to store our luggage. We were able to change and use the facility for relaxation until our time had come. Both Mike and his family were over the top gracious in their welcome and between them and Carlos we were not left to figure things out on our own. They provided information on where to go, how to get there, and which restaurants were reasonable. Throughout the week we went to most of the places recommended and we could not disagree with their choices. The condo itself was incredible with views that were breathtaking and invulnerable to waking up in a bad mood! We can hardly wait to return to the paradise of Mexico. The facilities at Palma Real were fantastic and there was nothing we wished were different. With respect to the beach, it too was beautiful. It was unfortunate for the wind (prior to our arrival) as it caused the seaweed to wash ashore. It's hard to argue the weather and what nature brings, and to ask someone (Carlos or otherwise) to maintain and stay on top of the seaweed is unreasonable. We managed to enjoy the beach nonetheless and my son and I had a great time kayaking and trying to run the waves! If we wanted to enjoy that "pristine" beach we just had to walk about 10-15 minutes into the amazing town of Puerto Morelos where the beach was everything you could imagine and ask for. The town itself was a slice of Mexican Heaven and I hate to say good things about it because I don't want it to get too busy! The town square was an amazing experience and we were able to provide our children with a true Mexican experience and culture. They embraced us with kindness and appreciation. Everyday we went to the local fish market and chose one of the daily catches and each day our dinner in our condo was amazing. We cant wait to return! Thank you Carlos for everything! Any cons are outweighed by the pros!!!!

Happy Overall, But A Bit Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

My friend and I loved the layout of the Condo. It was suited us to a "T." We love having our own bedroom with en-suite bathrooms. The rooftop had great views and we spent many hours there with nibbles and wine! The town is like "old" Cancun with its small intimate restaurants, friendly people and laid back atmosphere. If you are expecting a posh resort and area, as it seems someone on here was, go to Cancun or Playa del Carmen. If you decide to rent a condo at Palma Real, then you wash your own towels, make your own bed, sweep the floor if it needs it, etc. The reasons I did not give a good rating and I hardly ever give an excellent rating (just how I am) is because of a couple of issues. The hot water heater was not turned on. Don't know if it worked or not. I know about such things, but was not going to mess with it. Hot water and cold water were the same temp. When we arrived it had supposedly rained quite a lot the past few days and water from the rooftop was dripping down via a light and the fan in the dining area. Kinda a big problem. Lastly, TV reception in the living area is bad, plus the stations on all the TV sets is almost all Spanish speaking and very few can be changed to English. We are older, have been to Mexico numerous times and are not partiers, so it would have been nice to be able to watch it. If you are out and about or not a watcher, then it's no problem. The management and the owner have been made aware of the hot water and leakage, so hopefully it has been addressed by now. Oh, one last thing, which has nothing to do with condo or owner/manager, you can not walk to town via the beach, which I believe was said on here somewhere. There's a federal property next door with a pier and so you have to take the street. Overall, we enjoyed our week very much and it was over way too soon.

Owner's Response: A bad review because the cable TV didn't have enough English channels?? 1. You're right, most of the cable channels we get are in Spanish. That's because our condo is located in Mexico where the primary language is Spanish. However, for our guests who wish to relax and watch TV we have a Netflix account that runs through Apple Tv, providing just about all the movies, TV shows, or sports you could ask for. 2. Hot water- our hot water system is tankless and on- demand. Unfortunately, the pilot light must have gone out. This is a simple issue that anyone of the staff on site could have fixed had they been made aware of the problem ( or had you called or emailed me). 3.Drip from fan- The problem with the rainy season in Mexico.... it just doesn't stop raining long enough to fix things like a rooftop patio. However, the drip has been fixed. 4. Housekeeping- As indicated upon rental, the condo is cleaned on a weekly basis. However, we are happy to arrange extra housekeeping services at a small fee. ( you are renting a condo.... not staying at an all inclusive resort ) My property management team and I take great pride to ensure that our guests will love everything about their stay at our condo. We have prided ourselves in consistently excellent reviews for the past four years. Although, as this renter stated, she doesn't give good reviews. My suggestion to all of my future renters.... all you need to do is ask and we will do everything in our power to ensure your stay exceeds your expectations. Mike Hughes

best views

  • 5 of 5

this was our 4th stay @ palma real (1st stay in this unit). easily the best views in the entire complex. as a repeat visitor to palma real we knew what to expect & we were not disappointed. the condo unit itself has most everything you need. you will need to purchase condiments for cooking & extra toilet paper but that's about it. Gustavo the pool & maintenance guy continues to keep all areas clean. Carlos the property manager is a wealth of information & very helpful. the owner was very easy to deal with & answered any questions we had. on those days that you need to chill inside, the owner has provided Netflix which was wonderful as we needed a break from the sun & heat.

complaints - no safe in the unit (so you may want to find a hiding place for valuables while you out). the unit advertises a dryer, however the dryer does not product hot air (only cool air) as there is no vent. we experienced the same situation in other units. neither of these complaints will discourage us from revisiting palma real.

Exhilarating holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad to have experienced the quaint and vibrant town of Puerto Morelos. A place not yet swarmed by tourists. A place where the food is fresh and exquisite. A place that has the 2nd largest reef in the world. The condo was top notch with a roof top penthouse with views to die for. Everyone should be so fortunate to experience the breathtaking views. The condo was beautifully furnished and very clean. And the view from the master bedroom and ensuite shower were amazing. Carlos was extremely helpful and advised the best restaurants and day trips. We loved it so much that we bought a unit in the complex! Thank you!

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Unit 301 for 11 days and had an amazing time. The views were breathtaking and only a 10 minute walk to town with kids. The pool was clean and the beach was raked every morning by 6! Carlos took care of everything that we needed and the local market and restaurants were great. If you want a laid back true Mexican holiday this is the way to do it. Very safe town, great dinners out and lazy days by the pool. A couple of day trips and a rental car = perfect. There is a bit of garbage that washes up every day and the snorkelling is much better in town but it is so close you make make an afternoon out of it. You have to remember this is Mexico, if you want to be wined and dined go to the Ritz!
