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.

Water Views with Mexican Art Flare Delight

  • 5 of 5

This condo located in the best location in all of Cancun. Safest too. Views outstanding & beautiful Mexican flare decor. My husband & I loved the condo, stayed June 22nd - June 28th. This was our 2nd time after 14 years.

We arrived by plane 10:20pm & we made arrangements w/"Cancun Shuttle" to be picked up since this condo was located in an exclusive community w/high end security. After spending about 10 minutes at the security entrance we were amazed at the mansions we passed, and expensive vehicles parked in each drive way. Expensive and exclusive. Two securities sections. We arrived at the condo about 11:30pm. Having no car on first night, we wanted to get out for a midnight walk right away and say hello to family at Westin Laguna Mar (across the way from the Punta Dorada/Isla Dorada). At midnight, it took about 12 minutes to get to the front office security office and returned at 2am. I can assure you this is an extremely safe location. When we woke up in the morning and we were "WOW" on the views.

You DO need a car and we had the rental com drop car at hotel across the st & drove car over w/no problem. The pictures of unit are as described. She leaves descriptive instructions for all and is very helpful via messages quickly. The unit is well appointed. There is everything you need and rooms are clean with everything. Great space! We had our guests visit and stay with us one night and they stated they would rent the unit next time when they return. Forget the hotels. I will return again as it is beautiful and extremely clean.

There is construction going on but it did not bother us nor our guests. Actually, it impressed us from a distance. The views of the lagoon are beautiful. The lagoon serves as a protection from the public & yet haven for crocodiles. I did not see an crocs. At night, you can see the lights of the city all around.

You are not close to the downtown area and we did not want to be. We were searching for peace & quiet.

Mansions are magnificent and boats and canals all around. We were told by folks who know the neighborhood, that this private community is made up of Mexican "Artistas", politicians, & administrators. No regular hobo lives in neighborhood.

You are next to Isla Mall & beaches. Beaches galore! We drove down the Mayan Rivera, Akumal (Yal-Ku Lagoon - snorkeled), Coba (rode bikes/climbed the ruin), & Valladolid (Catholic Church). We drove far & came home to our Condo! Loved it

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.

Wonderful vacation spot!

Everything was exactly as it was described! The condo was clean, well stocked with everything you could need, inviting, and comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay here because of how spacious the condo was and also because of how close the pool was located.
