This condo is part of the Amara complex, which was completed at the end of 2010, so it is very new. In Amara you will find beautiful gardens, BBQ areas, a big pool area by the sea, a wonderful palapa in the pool and the beach. It has a fantastic location, as it is an Oceanside property where you can access all the Hotel Zone attractions (hotels, restaurants, Wet-n-Wild, ferries, etc), the downtown area (typical Mexican restaurants, grocery stores, bars, etc) and you are 5 minutes walking distance of the Isla Mujeres ferry terminal. You can have the best of what Cancun has to offer for every taste within 10 to 20 minutes from your vacation home!
The condo is a very spacious (130 m2 = 1,400 sqr feet) with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We also have a TV area, dining room and living room, all with a great views of the ocean. One of our favorites areas of the condo is our big terrace (14 m2 = 150 sqr feet) with an incredible view (as you can see from some of the photos) of the Caribbean Ocean, Isla Mujeres and Cancun’s Hotel Zone (we never get tired of having a morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine with this view).
When you rent our condo we will provide you with everything you need for your daily experience: towels, sheets, dishes, glasses, cups, cutlery, etc. We also have washing and drying machines to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Security in the complex is very good as we have a private security team working on-site 24 hours a day. Regarding groceries, we have a convenience store just across the street and a Walmart grocery (named Superama, very much like a Publix in the USA) within a 5 minute drive.
Our property manager will make checking in and checking out a very easy experience and can assist you with questions or needs you could have during your stay with us.
We really think we can offer you a great experience, with a fantastic location in a brand new complex at a very affordable price. You can take a look at our reviews, people that have stayed with us have been very happy.
Due to Amara's bylaws we have a 25+ year restriction regarding all-adult groups. Families are very welcomed at our condo.
Amara condos is conveniently located in an oceanfront development (Puerta del Mar) in the downtown area. This very centric location allows for everything from snorkeling to fish taco hunting within a 10 to 20 minute drive. The property has an amazing pool area, beautiful gardens, a private beach and fitness center.
So you can either spend your days without going out or go to any top Cancun destination (both touristy as well as very local).
Waking up and having your coffee on the balcony with that view is worth the trip.
We had a great stay the property was very nice!
All transactions from beginning to end went very smoothly. We had a small family reunion and from start to finish everyone was welcoming and friendly. The accomadations were really comfortable. We had a small problem and it was taken care of immediately (counts for a lot) The view is gorgeous, place relaxing, food in area quaint and delicious, really quiet and felt very secure. We had a fabulous time!
We enjoyed our stay at Amara condominiums. The unit was very spacious and the view from the patio balcony is incredible. Having a kitchen was very convenient and the bathrooms were updated and very accommodating. The pool area is remarkable and never crowded while we were there. Humberto was very quick to answer and gracious when we had questions prior to our travel.
Understanding that we were in Mexico and the official language is Spanish, I was under the impression that English was commonly spoken at the condominium complex, at least to some degree. If you do not speak Spanish this may not be the vacation rental for you. I speak limited Spanish but NO ONE on property spoke English nor were they interested in taking time to work with me to figure out what we needed. We spent the first two hours of our vacation looking for someone to get us onto the property (not one Of the guards spoke English and were quick to tell us we couldn't come into the property) or into the unit (once we got onto the property no one knew who/where the property manager was and when we did find someone she did not speak a word of English). We were told the property manager we expected was assisting another guest and that it was the gate guards' first day on the job, but I have a hard time believing it was everyone's first day and I never did meet Bego, the property manager I had spoken with previously. Forget asking for directions to anything. After about 3 days of coming and going the gate guards stopped giving us a hard time. I guess they finally recognized us.
We very much enjoyed the ferry to Isla Mujeres and our visit there. It was an incredible day. The ferry is within walking distance but I wouldn't recommend it. My family did not feel safe enough to walk there. If you stay at this property and intend to see much of Cancun you will need to rent a car, which is an experience in itself.
Overall, a very nice property but if you do not speak Spanish or do not intend to brave driving the colorful streets of the city you should probably consider staying at a property in the hotel zone where there is readily available public transportation and an English speaking concierge or manager.
The condo was perfect. It has room enough for 5 adults and 2 children, and we still could have had more sleeping on the couch. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and cooking tools. There is plenty of storage space in the cupboards. We all felt very safe, as there are two points that a driver must go through that have security guards at them when entering. There is also security at each condo tower by the elevators to go up. The security guards were very friendly, and would wave and welcome us as we walked to the convenience store across the street. They even got us a taxi return for half the price on our return to the airport.
About a 5 minute walk is the ferry to Isla Mujeres. It is beautiful. Plan on spending a day there. We snorkeled, rode golf carts from end to end, shopped, and had a dinner made from freshly caught mackerel. About a 10 minute walk from the condo is the Captain Hook dinner show on a pirate ship, and also where you can have private boats take you touring around Isla Mujeres.
About a 15 minute walk is a restaurant (right before downtown Puerto Juarez). This is where we would buy fresh fruits and vegetables (the marked is attacked to the restaurant) and we ate breakfast and dinner. Very inexpensive and really delicious. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful.
We did not rent a car, but instead rode the bus everywhere. It took about 30 minutes to ride the bus to the Hotel Zone, and the locals told us to go to Playa Delfino, and Turtle Beach. Delfino was great for the adults, but a little too rough for the little kids. Turtle Beach was fun for all.
The pool at the condo was our favorite. It was warm, and never seemed crowded. It was always clean, and well kept, and their are bathrooms at the pool area. We also loved the playground area. A real treat are the iguanas that are all around the grounds basking in the sun. We will definitely return.
We really enjoyed our time! It was great to have a full kitchen and access to a zero entry pool for the kids. There is a "beach" right there too but it is rocky/weedy. There were a couple minor maintenance issues but the management company was very response and helpful. Great place for a family vacation!
Most important: If you don't speak Spanish, we DO NOT recommend this location. We relied on Google Translate to communicate with guards, taxi drivers, etc, which was challenging.
This location is relatively secluded in a residential area and a 20 min taxi ride to Hotel Zone, which will cost $15 US each way. The condo community is very secure with two guard stations. The guards were very helpful. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and the facility is extremely clean. The pool is awesome! The restaurant is experiencing growing pains, but has the potential to be nice in the future. Food is average and service is slow right now. The beachfront is VERY small and rough. This was a disappointment for us. The condo is adequate, spacious & clean. The condo had some maintenance issues that we are bringing to the attention of owner since property manager did not respond to our inquiries. The view of the ocean and grounds from our balcony was outstanding. There was a constant warm breeze that was relaxing and peaceful. The ferry is a 10 min walk away, which is convenient. Otherwise, there is nothing to do in this area. We would recommend this location to adult travelers who are looking for a getaway that is secluded from typical vacation activities. It is not suitable for those who want to spend time on the beach and have access to conveniently located restaurant options.
