This is your ultimate vacation paradise... ! EVERYTHING is right here... Picture endless white sands, turquoise ocean waves lapping at your toes, gentle ocean breezes and lots of sunshine!... Come vacation in PARADISE in the heart of the fabulous MAYAN RIVIERA! We have a beautiful villa complete with a private patio that boasts its own hot tub, full kitchen, FREE daily maid service, swimming pool, work-out/steam room, and much more in the picturesque gated village of Puerto Aventuras...Port of Adventure. We are overlooking the Grand Marina and across from the Tom Lehman designed scenic golf course.
This UNIQUE COMMUNITY just south of Playa del Carmen has so much to no place else you've ever stayed! And it's ALL about LOCATION and relaxation! 5 min. from our door there are beautiful white sandy beaches (complete with swim-up jacuzzi beach bar, palapas, and full beach service). A natural reef protects the shoreline for safe swimming.

About Jane Barclay
My husband and I have traveled extensively all over the Caribbean always looking for some place to call home... our own 'particular harbour'... and several years ago we found it. Right here in Puerto Aventuras. We dreamed we'd be able to wake up here; walk around the marina; watch people swimming with the dolphins, manatees, and sea lions while sipping on an ice cold Diet Coke or Cerveza, por favor! Or maybe while licking an ice cold ice cream cone (while watching a baby dolphin being born!) OK... I never dreamed of that, but I loved it when it happened! So we bought a beautiful villa and have been happy ever since! Let us tell you about the places to see and the marvelous things to do on your vacation. One thing you can be sure of.... is that I take your vacation very seriously. I know how important it is to be able to ask all your questions and get the help you need, when you need it. I love to tell you some of our favorite places to see and things to do, and I will research anything you need. We also have staff on-site to help while you're there. COME... and Check it out. YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE! All of my renters have.
Jane Barclay purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Jane Barclay chose Puerto Aventuras
WE FELL IN LOVE WITH PUERTO AVENTURAS!!! This stretch of the Mayan Riviera has it ALL... beautiful beaches, laid back community with gated entrance, largest marina between Cancun and Belize, dolphins, manatees, sea lions, great snorkeling right off the beach that's protected by the 400 mile Meso-American Reef (the second largest in the world)... and much more. It's reachable by reasonable fairly short flights from most American/Canadian cities. Mexican people are very friendly and welcoming. Food/beverages are cheap and fresh fruits and vegetables are in abundance. It's a quiet little community, but it has many interesting shops and restaurants within a 5 minute walk from our door. We are right on the Grand Marina.
What makes this Villa unique
You can snorkel right off the beach. Read by the pool. Swim with the dolphins. Use the jacuzzi on our patio. Golf and Tennis nearby. Daily maid service. Many shops and restaurants right around the marina... 5 min. walk. Beautiful beach and full priviledges at the Omni Beach Club are optional. If you want you can explore the ruins right on the property... or check out our local cenote or caleta (bay). Many places to walk. We love to explore and it's all right here. Also close to Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Tulum. Will be glad to give you lots of info!

Wonderful relaxing vacation in beautiful Mexico
It was a beautiful Condo in a beautiful place. Very well appointed, comfortable condo with all the amenities one would need, and bottled water provided. Weather was awesome, 85 every day. Great view from the 2nd floor patio. Very well maintained facility, pleasant, friendly staff always visible taking care of the property. Lap pool was super clean, and welcome in the morning and afternoon. It was a 5 minute walk to restaurants, bars and light shopping. The beach was also a 5 minute walk. We took advantage of the day membership at the Omni Hotel for beach access and beach bar. If you want pounding discos and drinking until you drop, stay in Cancun. If you are looking for a wonderful, relaxing, laid back time out with fantastic food, drinks and entertainment 5 minutes away from your 5 star room, this is the place. We felt very safe in Puerto Aventuras and will definitely look for time to come back. Best part of this condo rental is Jane. She knows everything about the resort area and what you need to do, buy, avoid, and all the ins and outs to make your vacation seamless and easy. We highly recommend staying at this condo, you won't be sorry!
Thank you SO much for your kind words and descriptions of Porto Bello, Puerto Aventuras and your vacation there! Truly, it was a joy working with you and your wife... you made the most of every opportunity and enjoyed every day. That was the best part for me.
Puerto Aventuras is such a hidden gem! I love to help travelers such as yourselves discover the many and varied ways to enjoy the beaches, sand, sun and fun of Mexico.
Can’t wait to work with you again!!
Thanks for renting. And thanks for writing such a nice review!!
We enjoyed our stay PA! It is a great location! Just a couple minutes walk to the ocean with a white sandy beach. Our favorite activities is spending the day at the beach. Relaxing reading, lunch, and great snorkeling experience!
The Villa is comfortable and clean. We really like the location on the harbor, and close to the village for shopping with many different restaurants.
Thank you, Mary Jo, for writing. I’m so glad you enjoyed your time at our villa! Sounds like you found many fun things to do. It really IS Paradise!!!
Jane’s condo is beautiful! Our family of three walked in and was in awe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Jane and her condo.
This was our first trip to Mexico and was a bit nervous of the unknown. Jane provided tons of helpful information prior to our arrival and kept an open line of communication for any questions we had.
The trip proved to be our best vacation yet. Even our active “picky” 11-yr old daughter would agree. There were so many beautiful places to see and so many activities to do; there was something fun for each of us. Again, I was a bit nervous of how to get anywhere as we did not rent a car; or how to obtain any information on any activities we wanted to do. But I was pleasantly surprise how everything proved to be simple and seamless.
I enjoyed hanging out the pool (which is so conveniently placed within steps of the condo), shopping at Playa del Carmen, tasting all the great cuisine, and watching the evening show at XCaret. My daughter enjoyed swimming with the dolphins (walking distance from the condo), snorkeling, and zip lining at Xplor. My husband enjoyed taking the tour of the Mayan ruins in Tulum, climbing the tallest ruin in Coba, and swimming in the underground rivers (cenotes).
We had FUN FUN FUN!!! Jane and her condo definitely provided our family a fabulous and awesome trip!
YOU were a joy to help, Jessica! And I am so pleased that you and your lovely family had such a great time. I loved reading about it. :-) Mexico is such a unique and beautiful country. I love to help people explore it. Your review is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
Beautiful condo, Great Service, Perfect location
We just returned from 8 nights in Puerto Aventuras. We rented through Jane. Her 1 bedroom wasn't available but she found us a 2 bedroom at very good rate. Thanks Jane! The condo was really nice and had every convenience. It was a ground floor unit and we liked having the landscaped back yard just a few steps to the pool. We bought the Omni beach membership for $125 that gave us full privileges plus a 25% discount on food and drinks during our stay. We have been to the Omni many times before and the beach had suffered from erosion the last couple years, but to our surprise they have completely restored it! There are many good restaurants in the village near Porto Bello and the Omni easy walking distance - you don't need a car. We usually visit Playa Del Carmen by walking up to the entrance of PTO and flagging down a "collectivo" - they run up and down the main highway every few minutes and only cost 20 pesos each way.
We definitely plan on renting a condo from Jane at Portobello Grand Marina again!
Thanks so much for your review! I really DO love it down there and love to share as much information as I possibly can about the area. It is a really unique special place to be. So glad you had a wonderful time!!! I will look forward to hearing from you again. :) All the best, Jane :)
Great property, relaxing time, well maintained
Great location between Tulum and Playa Carmen. Lots of dining options in the area. Reasonable beach very close by. Good safe gated community. Great place to visit with kids. Pool is right outside the condo. The condo is well maintained. Has all the modern amenities you would expect. Good value for the money. Owner is very helpful, answers questions promptly and will explain area very well. Overall, a good vacation spot. Have rented several vrbo, homeaway, airbnb places before and this is one of our favorites.
We will return
Excellent stay, in all respects. Jane is a very helpful owner, who replies promptly to any question...and provides helpful suggestions. The unit is very neat & clean & attractively decorated. The only thing we missed was a teakettle. The staff at Porto Bello is excellent, and the maid and laundry service are outstanding. Restaurants are just a 5-minute walk away. Beach, towels & facilities are available from the Omni hotel (5 minute walk) for $125...with a 25% discount thereafter for purchases there (cheaper if you pay in pesos). We highly recommend the Omni's restaurant (ceviche is the best I have had anywhere). Omni prices are somewhat higher that at other Puerto Aventuras restaurants, but the quality & 25% discount compensates. Our 2nd choice for restaurants is Masimo's. The wedge salad at Cafe Ole is outstanding, though we would order something other than enchiladas & hamburguesas on our next visit (last year their Thanksgiving dinner was outstanding). We did not make it to Latitude 20 this year, but that is another good dining option. We did this stay without a car. The walk to the Chedraui for groceries is about 17 minutes each way. I suggest you bring a sturdy backpack if you plan to do this, though you can get a taxi back for about 50 pesos. Shuttle transport to/from the airport typically runs about $70. We used a taxi for returning for 730 pesos + tip. For other travel that is much cheaper, adventuresome folks can walk to the gate (7 minutes) and catch a colectivo. On return, you might enjoy a stop at Taco Paco, located between the Pemex and Subway. Not fancy and not scenic, but the fish and coconut shrimp tacos are excellent (they close at 6pm). With all that Porto Bello and Jane's have to villa offer, we can't help but return.
Thank you SO MUCH for your generous review. I try really hard to provide the kind of service I would hope to get when renting myself. AND I LOVE to share our special corner of the world in Mexico.
Thank YOU for appreciating it and for writing this review! I never remember to ask my renters to do so. But it sure is nice when someone writes.
And I'll work on that tea kettle! :)
Thank you for renting from me... and for writing... not to mention the helpful tips! I look forward to seeing you back at Porto Bello Grand Marina next year!! :)
Have a great day!!!
