Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much Cristina!

Yes, after our stay at your condo, we are going to Isla Mujeres for 5 days:)

But I will definitely take your advice and go to Playa Norte.

Thank you so much.

And yes, we are enjoying our stay at your beautiful place.

The staff here is very friendly, and we love the Casa Club!

We've been discovering Cancun and the area a lot.

We've been taking the bus a lot, it's fun:)

We went to Parque de las palapas then ate at a local restaurant, went to Playa Caracol, Xel-Ha, or just relax at Casa Club, etc.

the whole experience has been really nice.

But we have been really enjoying our stay so far!! Very relaxing!

Thank you so much for checking in. Really appreciate it.

Excellent condo in Isla Dorada Cancun.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a long stay in Cristina's apartment in Isla Dorada. Firstly we would like to say that Cristina is excellent host and dealt with the couple of queries that we had instantly .She is very contactable by email or the condo phone. Isla Dorada is a beautiful place and the Casa Club within the complex is outstanding with swimming pool, gym and restaurant. It is a five minute walk from the condo. Turn left out of Punta Dorada security, past second bridge take first entrance on left. We can only agree with all previous reviews and the fact that we will definitely return says it all!

This is the first time my family and I have used a VRBO and I am happy to say that we had a fantastic stay at Cristina’s condo. She was always very quick to reply to any questions we had and provided a ton of useful information concerning interesting places to visit, grocery store locations, frequently asked questions, etc. The condo was very clean when we arrived and it had everything we needed. It was also very convienient to have the washer and dryer in the condo.

My daughters, 12 and 14 loved using the pool at the complex and we felt safe sending them down on their own when we didn’t feel like joining them. My husband and I usually woke up early and walked around the island each morning; enjoying the beautiful gardens and houses. We then relaxed with our coffees on the balcony while gazing out at the Lagoon.

We found it very easy to navigate ourselves around Cancun using the buses to get to the ferry, beaches and shopping. When we didn’t want to travel too far, we liked walking around La Isla shopping center.

We always felt very safe on Isla Dorada as security was very thorough with anyone entering or exiting the island. The security guards at Punta Dorada were very friendly and my husband enjoyed practicing his Spanish with them.

We highly recommend staying at Cristina’s.

Another great stay at Cristina's condo! Everything you need is there and she is helpful and prompt. Great location, pools are great. We rented a car as we venture out a lot but not necessary. Very safe complex and area. Thanks Cristina!!

Un oasis de belleza!

  • 5 of 5

Es difícil poner en palabras lo especial que fue este viaje. Empezaré por decir que el lugar es en verdad exclusivo y bien localizado.

Isla Dorada es una isla privada con una seguridad muy estricta que nos hizo sentir tranquilos y relajados. El condominio está lindo, limpio, organizado, equipado con todo. Las vistas de cada ventana son preciosas, todo fue un sueño. Cristina nos dio la información necesaria para hacer nuestro viaje fácil y siempre estuvo dispuesta a responde cualquier duda. Mis dos hijos, 5 y 8 años, disfrutaron la alberca por horas. Una experiencia mejor de lo esperado a un precio por debajo de un cuarto de hotel, con muchas más comodidades. Ya reservamos para volver el próximo año. Restaurantes y actividades están a unos minutos, playas lindas y tranquilas también están muy cerca.

México es hermoso!

Amazing vacation and condo.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was perfect in every way. The condo is very well located. Beaches are close, We had the pools to ourselves most of the time. The condo is clean, spacious and well equipped. Isla Dorada is a very exclusive community and security is strict, which made us feel very safe. Cristina is an amazing host and we thank her for being always so responsive and helpful. She is organized and on top of everything. We will definitely go back.

Great Place, clean & orderly.

  • 5 of 5

The only downside is the security gate. It often would take 10+ to get cleared - which made going in & out a bit of a hassel.

Perhaps something can be done to expedite this.

Otherwise great place.

Isla Dorada is just steps from “La Isla,” a beautiful and exclusive outdoor mall, a 10-minute walk from Cancun's best shopping, dining, natural parks, Mayan ruins, challenging golf courses and beautiful scenery and entertainment venues.

Some of Cancun's best beaches are nearby as well.

Chedraui Selecto and Soriana are great grocery stores, that will deliver to the condo, located at the hotel zone, they have a great selection and good prices too. I will send you a map to locate them before you check in. La Europea is a liquor, wine and deli store that is also very close to the condo.

The condo is on the 5th. floor. Take the elevator from the garage or 1st floor directly to your unit. Private parking is available as well as guest parking. Breathtaking views overlook the lagoon and the hotel zone.

Walk out the sliding glass living room doors onto your terrace to relax while you sip a glass of wine and enjoy the breathtaking sunset.
