About Wendy Simpson

Puerto Aventuras is my home away from home - a wonderful place to recharge your batteries, in a quiet and friendly atmosphere. The rest of the year I live in Paris - a big beautiful hectic city - the combination of the two seems just about perfect to me. I am happy to receive inquiries at 33-1-4647-7997. If you do not feel like calling France send me your number and I will call you back.

Wendy Simpson purchased this condo in 2005

Why Wendy Simpson chose Quintana Roo

Puerto is easy to get to via Cancun airport. The residence is particularly desirable for small children with the zero entry pool and gentle sandy beach entry. For a bit of lively activity you are only 20 minutes from the bustling Playa del Carmen, and close to many interesting places to explore. Tulum and Coba are wonderful sites of Mayan ruins. There are also several very interesting theme parks in the area. Something for everyone.

What makes this condo unique

I took many vacations in Puerto before buying and each time looked at many apartments. For whatever reason I fell in love with this one the moment I saw it - It is directly on the best part of the beach, just a few steps from the Marina and has every comfort I could want.

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on Sunday night when the office was closed, but the key was under the mat as they said it was. Condo is very spacious with a huge master bedroom on the upper level, with a nice view of the sea. Another bedroom upstairs is also very large with 2 twin beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Another large bedroom on the main floor with its own full bathroom. We were four adults and three kids, and had lots of room. Nice size kitchen and dining room, but kitchen could use some upgrading. Grocery store is a short cab ride away. We walked one night, but it was quite a distance. Short walk to the harbour/town centre, where there are lots of restaurants. The condo is a very short walk to the pools(2) and a beautiful shallow beach. Very clean and well maintained. Drinking water was slow to come, once ordered.

We had a great time and would definitely rent this condo from Wendy again.

Great Christmas Break

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay at the penthouse over the Christmas break.

Everything comes as advertised. Lots of room, privacy, and great views. Rooms are well furnished, kitched well equipped, clean linens, and maid service three times per week was a bonus. Pool, beach, and the entire property was clean and well maintained. We liked the ability to find a chair or table or palapa any time of day even during the Christmas break. The beach is fabulous, safe for even the little ones, no rocks to easy to walk.

We had our breakfast and lunch in the room, and ate out for dinner every night. There are at least a dozen restaurants within a 10 minute walk including a couple bakeries, pharmacy, liquor store and a 24 hour convenience store. Many of the restaurants offer live entertainment as well as a few sports orientated ones.

For major groceries less than a 15 minute walk to the main gates of Puerto Aventuras, hop in a waiting cab and only a 50 peso cab ride to the store. The store has practically everything you need at reasonable prices, then a 70 peso cab ride back to the doors of your apartment.

We truly enjoyed the rental and all the amenities.

Beautiful dupleix in a charming location.

  • 5 of 5

The dupleix is beautifully decorated with all amenities. The view on the gardens and the beach are charming. The access to the beach is easy. There are plenty of restaurants close by to eat and artisanal and delicious ice cream shops.. The location is also perfect for sightseeing.

This condo was very nice and comfortable. It had all the necessary amenities for a pleasant vacation. We have stayed in multiple locations throughout the Mayan Riviera and Puerto Aventuras. This condo was the best for beach front access! The multiple balconies with their display of plants was an added bonus.

My elderly mother was able to use the pool as well and the water temperature was perfect. The stairs to access the condo were perfectly spaced so that my mother could traverse them with no problem. She felt stronger after this vacation. Our kids thought the pool and beach was pretty nice too! The varying depths of the pool allowed them to explore their surroundings while learning to swim under our supervision.

The grounds of Villa Del Mar are neatly manicured and allow the visitor to feel like they are in paradise. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this vacation condo to people of any age!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 3 children and the grandparents for a delightful 10 days. The condo was comfortable, clean and the location was excellent! We could walk to restaurants and little shops, there was golf and tennis if we chose to participate and there are lots of activities near by. The complex was relaxing and quiet, it was so nice not to have to fight for lounge chairs either by the pool or beach. My only regret was that we had to leave!

Puerto Aventuras is between the lively city of Playa del Carmen and the beautiful Mayan ruins of Tulum. Even more extensive ruins of Coba and Chizen Iza are available for a daily outing. In addition there are many theme parks to see local wildlife and snorkel with colorful Caribbean fish. Underground water is very important in Quintana Roo. All rivers are underground and occasionally come to the surface creating chrystal clear cenotes (fresh water ponds) to explore - and for cave divers there is no more extensive network anywhere else in the world. Puerto Aventuras has something for every interest and every age.
