Hot tubs on terraces not to be operated after 11:00 p.m. Please be considerate of others' right to a tranquil ambiance. Everyone wants to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere while vacationing here.

Puerto Aventuras is a private, gated community on the Mayan Riviera 20 miles south of Playa del Carmen where you can find exciting night clubs and plenty of high-end shopping along La Quinta Avenida. The ferry from Playa takes you to Cozumel, a world-renowned Dive location. The ferry runs hourly from two locations.

About 25 miles further south from Puerto Aventuras is the town of Tulum, home to restored ruins of the ancient Mayan city. Hire a guide for 40 minutes to hear the history of the site. You can swim in the Caribbean there, if you descend many, many stairs down to the surf.

For more history, culture, and popular activities available in the area visit the Puerto Aventuras website.

Better than imagined!

  • 4 of 5

We are, sadly, just back from a WONDERFUL, 10-day stay at this lovely condo. Paradise! I have been to PA a few times before, and Rafael's place is my favorite! We were 2 families, including three 9-12 yr old girls, and LOVED the location---quiet, yet close to everything. An easy stroll on the beach to the Omni & the town center, but none of the street noise or loud music. We rented a golf cart for 2 days, but did wish we had done it longer, so as to explore the the northern areas (by the Catalonia and Punta Roca) more. And to easily access the gorgeous lagoon just south, via the new roads for the new marina homes!! The condo itself was large, and fairly well stocked with pots & pans, dishes, and utensils. Plenty of bottled water, beach towels, and linens, as well as TP, paper towels, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, and hair dryers were also supplied. A/C, black-out shades, and TV's in all of the spacious bedrooms, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The deck is huge, the views are amazing, and the private staircase to the beach & pool is sooooo convenient. This condo is in "the Kayak Club", so the boats on the beach are free to use...just be sure to have your water shoes on! The housekeeper, Flores, was a delightfully-efficient gem, and came every day to sweep, make beds, do any dishes & linens laundry, and generally tidy up. Jessica, Rafael's assistant/property manager, had fab recommendations for chartering boats, dining out, etc.

The only drawbacks were that the in-house WiFi didn't work (that can be overcome by getting an International plan from your cell provider ahead of time) which meant that the NetFlix didn't work (no fix for that, and we didn't bring DVDs). Also, one of the kayak paddles was broken, so we weren't able to use 2 boats at the same time, without borrowing from another unit. Previous reviews mentioned the sparse seating in the living room.....we brought 2 of the accent chairs from the bedrooms, into the living room, to supplement the smallish-sofa and loveseat, and were fine, but could see where seating could be an issue for groups with more adults.......IF you were planning to sit inside and watch TV. Trust me, you won't be! Rafael did tell us he had ordered new, larger pieces, so I guess we have something to look forward to next year! Thank you for a wonderful vacation, Rafael!

Awesome views and location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay and loved all aspect of this condo. The grounds were very clean and manicured, the pool was beautiful. We would walk into town along the beach every night for dinner and entertainment. Rafael was quick to fix the internet and Flor the housecleaner was very kind. She even came Christmas Day!

We will be coming back!

Great location and property!

  • 4 of 5

This location can't be beat if you want to be on the water and away from the crowds. The narrow beach and grass lawn are partially shaded by palms, the swimming pool is clean and refreshing, and just off the beach. The grounds are very well kept and quiet. The ocean is rocky here, wear water shoes, but you can enter on sand 100 yards down, where the beach also widens out. There isn't much to see if you're snorkeling, but the 2 kayaks provided with the condo are a lot of fun. There were also a variety of water toys for young kids.

The town center had plenty of dining and shopping options for us, and we found some very good restaurants and cafes. We used the travel agent at the Omni hotel -they were very fast and helpful- to book a couple of day tours to cenotes and Mayan ruins. These are highly recommended! Rafael said he could also help with this, but because of a lack of internet and no international phone SIM, we couldn't communicate with him most of the time. We also used the dive shop at the Omni - we took several dives and my teenage son went through their PADI diver certification program. They are highly recommended.

The condo is clean and beautiful with a large patio and fantastic view. Rafael was helpful in answering my questions before we arrived. Considering it sleeps 8, it could use a little more seating in the living area. The beds were very comfortable! Air conditioning was only available in the bedrooms, not the living/dining area, although wall-length sliding glass doors allow you to open up to beach breezes. The Wi-Fi was spotty and unreliable, which was a problem for arranging our tours and for those who needed to keep in touch with work. We didn't try the Netflix. The golf cart battery was run down, so we couldn't use it, which was a shame - it would have helped getting around town in the mid-summer heat. The friendly housekeeper came in a couple of times during the week. Drinking water was supplied. All considered, we had a wonderful time, but would have liked Wi-Fi and the golf cart as advertised.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5, kids being 17, 16 and 13. This condo was the perfect size for us. Loved the view, private stairway to beach and the quiet location. We enjoyed walks on the beach, using the kayaks and having the golf cart to tour around the town in. We shopped at the store just off the highway about 3 times and having the golf cart to take our groceries back was nice. Rafael was very helpful with going to the grocery store the first day we got there and when the internet wasn't working.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 10 days with our family of 5. The condo was the perfect size. Loved the view and the quiet area. Rafael was very helpful when taking us to the grocery store and also loved having the golf cart to drive around in. We walked to the store 3 times and with having the golf cart it made it easier to take the groceries back to the condo. Having the kayaks was really nice too as we took them out almost every day.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children (8,11,12) and stayed 10 days. It was the best vacation ever! The kids loved being outside and playing in the pool or sand or catching crabs. Every day we walked up the beach to "town" and watched the dolphins. Rafael was always available if needed and even helped me get to the grocery store. The water walkers are definitely needed right outside the condo, but it is a short walk to the soft sandy beach. The condo is beautiful and well equipped. We even swam with the dolphins which was amazing. We would definitely recommend the owner and this condo!
