Enjoyed every minute of our time there! El Meco Mayan ruins are about 1km. North of condo on the main road. Not crowded or expensive. The ferry over to isla Mujares costs 300 pso for 2 return. Sit up top . Golf cart renters beware! We got an old tired machine that wouldn't even climb the f-ing hiills on the road. Returned it early not wanting it to leave us stranded ! Get yourself a good new cart from a bigger place ! The Main Street is a 3ring circus. We ate at a beautifull little restaurant called Olivia's with a calm courtyard .on matamoros. Puertos Santos just south of condo on the beach was also a good find for interesting food .Dont be afraid of el Centro . Try a Caribbean place called La Habichela at Margaritas #25.

Lovely Views

  • 3 of 5

For us the best part of the holiday was the views from the Penthouse. The apartment was clean and had everything you needed to make your stay enjoyable. Downside for us was location. We like to go on holidays where you can walk to different restaurants and eat out. Stop and have an ice cream and coffee in the afternoon etc and this was not the place for that. It did not feel safe at night to walk about and you had to take taxi's. Local restaurants close at 6pm or 7p,m because they were more like a lunch time eating place than a place you would get dressed and go out for an evening. We took a taxi to the Hotel Zone a few times which was very busy and had lots of choice but too busy for us. It was very easy to use the Ferry as the terminal was right there, this was a plus about the Penthouse location. We went to Isla Mujerers which we loved and also booked a hotel room on our last night and we traveled to Playa Del Carmen and took the Ferry to Cozumel for the day. Very easy trips. We absolutely loved Playa Del Carmen for its atmosphere and choice and clean white sandy beaches that you could walk and swim in. The beach at the penthouse was not the best. We stayed during Christmas and New Year and were very surprised at how quiet the property was. A real plus was being able to get a bed by the pool at any time of day. So overall, if you are looking for a quiet holiday and are happy to cook and eat in your apartment then this is the place for you. If you want atmosphere and a bit more choice and do mot want to get taxi's everywhere then this is not for you.

Lovely, affordable relaxing vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, easy trip from the airport, reasonably well-stocked kitchen for the size, and can't beat the view! The beach isn't usable for much other than walking with shoes (it's small and rocky), but they waves look and sound great from the penthouse. On-site restaurant is very convenient (remember to take plenty of pesos - no credit cards), and the property is safe and within cab distance to a grocery store. The host is incredibly conscientious and responsive. I would definitely recommend to someone looking for a budget-friendly getaway!

Great view, only the best of Cancun

  • 5 of 5

Andreas has a great place for anyone who wants their own self styled Cancun vacation. The floor to ceiling front windows make your penthouse feel a lot bigger.

In Puerto Juarez, you can walk a block to the Ultramar Ferry to the idelic Isla Mujeres to snorkel or hike or just have drinks brought to you in a beach chair. Playa Norte there is considered to be among the top ten beaches in the world.

A tiny convenience store up the street you will probably pass by without notice. Go inside and up a spiral staircase to a very high end fresh seafood restaurant (Marbella) overlooking the sea and the fishing boats that bring in you dinner.

Do only what you like while you are there. This is freedom in a town full of lockstep vacation packages.

Amazing views and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Amara at the Penthouse apt. The views were spectacular both in daylight and even more beautiful in the moonlight. The apartment had everything we needed and if we did need anything (like bar soap and bottled water) markets were nearby. The pool was huge and wonderful for swimming or lounging. The restaurant on the premises was also very good and inexpensive. We had breakfast pool/beachfront in the restaurant palapa each morning. Such a calming and gorgeous start to our days. The best restaurant with the FRESHEST seafood was within walking distance called Mar-Bella. We went twice for dinner and loved it! Also Kiosko Verde near the Ferry to Isla Mujeres was excellent! Note: restaurants close somewhat early in the area - around 7:00pm.

The Ferry to Isla Mujeres was a very short walk from the condo and you must go there. The most beautiful beach is there called Playa Norte. We also rented a golf cart and explored the Island, It was a great day. Unfortunately, our beach by the condo was very rocky and had too much sea weed for any good swimming. We really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere at Amara. If we wanted to go out at night to the Hotel Zone for some entertainment, we would just take a taxi - so convenient. Thank you Andreas for a wonderful relaxing vacation in your condo:)

Isla Mujeres day trip

A trip to Isla Mujeres can be as active or as relaxing as you'd like. If relaxation is what you are looking for, turn to the left, after you get off the ferry and are out on the street. Make a beeline for Playa Norte (North Beach) and plant yourself on the beach. There, you will find some beach clubs, which have lounge chairs and serve food and beverages, but there are also restaurants that will let you use their tables and chairs, on the beach, as long as you are ordering food and drinks. Order a bucket of cervezas and just sit back, with your toes in the sand, and enjoy the view. The sunsets on North Beach are breathtakingly beautiful...and the view is pretty awesome the rest of the day too.

For explorer golf cart is the best way to navigate the island in 1 hour !
