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:)

Very good. the view is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved our stay there. It is close to everything and security is 24 hours and the people are very friendly. The pool is not used a lot so we had the pool to ourselves most of the time. We slept with the glass door open all the time, the sea breeze was wonderful. We used public transport most of the time and was very efficient and cheap. We can't say enough regards to this property and would recommend it. We stayed 31 days.

Great vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was our first time in Cancun and the owner was very responsive with providing information regarding directions, access to the condo and general information for local resources. The view from the room was absolutely beautiful overlooking the garden below and the bay. This condo is located on the north side of the city but outside the major traffic locations. All local shopping is a short distance from the condo and the ferry to Isla Mujeres is a block away.

The condo was very clean and comfortable, secure with friendly and helpful security staff and easy access to the beach, swimming pool, dining and shopping. We would like to thank the owner for use and looking forward to using the condo in future visits to Cancun.

Beautiful view. Clean and well stocked studio apartment. Exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

Everything was very good from all the information prior to arriving to the quick refund of our damage deposit. Owner was very quick to respond to any inquiries. Flowers and a chilled bottle of champagne were waiting for us upon our arrival. Very nice touch. Restaurants onsite were very good. Pool was very clean and lots of lounge chairs available each day.

Only minor issue was the majority of the security staff did not speak any English so it was a bit of a struggle each time we returned to the property to go through the security gates. Other than that it was a great place to spend 10 days.

Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as promised. The owner was very good at communicating with us, the guards at the entrance were very helpful, the apartment was beautiful with an absolutely beautiful view, and there was everything you needed in the apartment (air conditioner, washer/dryer, television, internet, etc.). The penthouse apartment is relatively small, but perfect for a couple. The bed looks out large wall-to-ceiling windows at the ocean. It was absolutely wonderful sight to wake up to. If you want to sleep later you can lower the window blinds and it lets in absolutely no light until you open them and see the beautiful view.

As long as you are stocked on groceries and brought your bathing suit, you won't need anything else. There are a number of good restaurants nearby and the ferry for Isla Mujeres is a short walk from the entrance, cost us $146 pesos round trip per person, and was very much worth the trip. Walking past the ferry terminal we found a wonderful restaurant on the left side of the street called Kiosko Verde Marisqueria. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is absolutely fantastic and relatively inexpensive. They have a craft beer brown ale made exclusively for the restaurant which was one of the best I have tried anywhere. The Ostiones a la Parilla (oysters on the grill) was amazing and their guacamole is fantastic as well.

We would return again if we were heading to Cancún. A very pleasant experience, especially if you are looking for something more private than a crowded resort or hotel. Cook food, make a picnic, or go out to eat, enjoy a huge pool almost completely to yourself, and relax with your significant other.

Thank you, Andreas.

Our three month stay at the Amara 1 BPH2 was a delight.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay the pictures accurately represent the property.

The grounds, gym and pool areas are well maintained and spotless.

The owner Andreas did everything to ensure our stay was incident free, he continuously followed up to ensure everything was satisfactory and there was nothing we needed.

Groceries are a short taxi ride and while there is a washer/dryer in the unit laundry service is the best deal in Mexico and is a short walk to the south.

Heading north there are plenty of nice restaurants and the El Meco ruins are only a 45 minute walk.

If you're not a walker colectivo buses are 8 pesos and go north to Punta Sam, buses south to the hotel zone are across the street and are 10 pesos.

Only a two minute walk to the Ultramar Ferry to Isla Mujeres.

We took several side trips to Playa del Carmen, Merida and Progresso the ADO intercity bus is a short ride on the Hotel Zone bus or 40 peso taxi fare.

Hopefully we'll return to Cancun and will stay with Andreas at the Amara 1 BPH2.

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 !
