Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mariela and Pierre, Thank you very much for letting us stay at your condo. It was just right for us. The only thing I used the kitchen for was making coffee in the morning; we ate out. The shower worked just fine as did the air conditioner. We could not use the safe deposit box because the battery light came on. I put the sheets and towels we used in a pile, and left everything else as we found it. My son and I enjoyed our vacation.

Best, Linda and Paul K, Atlanta, Georgia

An excellent self-contained condo.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, compact condo is in an excellent location. Two eternity swimming pools and the beach are perfect for active as well as laid-back guests. Shopping for Mexican and international foods within walking distance and souvenirs galore. We highly recommend this condo.

Charming holiday rental

  • 4 of 5

We were greeted by a very professional manager and pleasant security staff.

This updated condo has access to one of Cancun's most beautiful crescent beaches. It Is comfortable and well maintained. Ideal for a family holiday. Situated near a surfing school, some small Mexican cafes and clubs and a topnotch supermarket for fine wines, gourmet foods and the staples needed for day to day needs.

We are contemplating booking again next year.

Perfect for what we wanted! Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Maria was great. She was very helpful in setting up our stay. The condo was perfect for what we were looking for, not directly in the entertainment area but close enough to walk there. The beach was beautiful. The price was reasonable.

Our new favorite home in Cancun!

  • 5 of 5

We love our new home in Cancun, in fact, my kids would like to move in and live there permanently. The condo is very convenient. Location could not be better if you don't want to bother with the car and be able to go everywhere. Big beautiful supermarket is walking distance. Convenience store is literally next door. We were not interested in clubs but they are all around as are many restaurants. We loved Natura restaurant right next door though. Great food with lots of variety and amazing juices and smoothes. There is also a taco/burrito stand next door which had delicious stuff. Traffic gets really heavy right at that area after 6pm so it is best to venture out on foot. There is also a lovely market with all kinds of local fare, souvenirs, jewelry, hats, blankets and suchlike across the street. It is very fun to walk around and it is seemingly open at all hours. The condo itself could not be nicer - you get exactly what you see in the pictures and more. It is small but very conveniently appointed. We were two adults and two kids and we had plenty of space. Kids were very comfortable on futon chair beds and nice bedding was provided for all the beds as well as plenty of towels. The kitchen is equipped with everything you may possibly need and everything is clean and new and taken care of. We did not have any issues with using the hot water heater and air conditioning worked great as well. Wifi worked great. The view is to die for - you look out on to the pool and the ocean. White ships go by. Parasails. Surfers. Kids can just run down the steps to a very nice pool and from there on to the beach. And back. Nice showers by the pool. The beach is gorgeous. Clean, great shells to be found, very calm in the morning for boogie boarding and great evening waves provided lots of body surfing and wave jumping fun for all of us. Kids swam in the pool for hours on end while I enjoyed comfortable lounge chairs and a book. They are doing lots of construction on that complex - I have a feeling it will be even nicer on our next visit to Cancun. Mariela was the most welcoming and perfect host. She provided all the info, set up the locks for us (digital lock is a huge convenience by the way!), advised us on where to go, was available at all hours for questions and suggestions and even had the grace to admire my children's pictures, which I could not resist sending. All in all, this was one of the best vacations we ever had. Thank you Mariela and Ocean Dreams Hotel!

Great price, best location

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a 7 night trip to Cancun, rented this condo w/my husband & 14-year-old son. This condo got 4 vs. 5 stars only because I think the condo complex could make some changes (upgrades), which they are in the process of doing. The condo complex service was excellent, grounds were clean & well maintained and the condo itself had an amazing view, was super clean, nicely decorated and in the best location in Cancun for fun!

A few notes to guests: I didn't see an iron and that's something I often use when traveling - was able to hang my clothes on the small square clothes line area on the porch in the morning to wear at night or the next day and the wrinkles from being packed were gone, so it wasn't really that big of a deal, but something other guests should be prepared for. Also, bring your own blow dryer (most condos don't have them like hotels).

There were 4 towels for personal use, several hand towels & wash cloths, but if you are one to wash your face daily or don't like to re-use a towel the whole week (and don't want to go to the Laundromat), you might want to bring some extra of your own. It's as big as the average hotel room, kitchen has everything you would need to make small meals; separate room is not completely closed off (open at the top to rest of the condo). Bed is maybe a full size, could be queen but is small for a queen (US standards) & my only complaint is that the bed was a bit too soft for me, but that's just a personal preference. My son is 6 ft tall, he fit on both the futon & the pull out chair that turns into a bed (pictured above). The condo was perfect size for us 3.

There's a restaurant right downstairs, which is nice for drinks/lunch/snacks while on the beach or at the pool, if you don't feel like using the kitchen. It's so close to the Cancun main attraction areas as stated above; saved a lot of money and time by being right there where the action is. Also, the beach is more private than the other beaches near by - they were FULL of people on the sand and water on the weekend but of course those were the hotel beaches; it was nice to have a bit more privacy. Also, we traveled to the west of the peninsula and that side of Cancun had boring water - no waves. There were tons of waves on this beach, lots of fun and the water is so blue and clear, sand so soft and wasn't rocky like other beaches we've been to.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your excellent review! The bed is indeed a double bed, not Queen size. The room has to be opened for safety reasons (air to enter room). We used to provide an iron and tabletop ironing board but for fire safety, got rid of those and the hair dryer disappeared so many times, I refuse to replace it. Those items are not in the description.

Girasol - Cancun

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Mariela for letting us use your condo. It was everything that you said it was...clean, decorated like a showroom, beautiful view of the pools, beach and endless ocean! The kids and I had a wonderful time swimming, bodyboarding, tanning, shopping and just relaxing. It was a 2 min walk to shopping and night life (Hard Rock Cafe, CoCo Bongo, The City, Hooters, Senior Frogs, Chile's, Dominos, McD's, etc). The staff was wonderful always asking if we need anything. The Cafe staff made sure my Tequila Sunrise was ready at poolside every day! Thank you again for giving us a great introduction to Cancun!!!
