The place was as described and the hosts were on top of everything.
Really good communication, place was clean and it had everything we needed. The complex its self needs major updating compared to others in the area.
Overall a solid place to stay.
Thank you Marlon we AGREE we do not look like the 500usd a night hotels that surround us !!! But we are a condo :) Fortunately our monthly maintenance fees are continuously contributing to keeping the building looking good and functioning . Fortunately we are able to provide to you the service of a 5 diamond hotel because that how we were trained and how we work :)
Michelle was lovely. I arrived much later than I had expected but she was gracious and very helpful. She gave useful tips for restaurants and things to do. The place itself looks exactly like you see in the pictures. Very easy access to the beach and a decent view of the ocean from the balcony. You can also see some cool Iguana's wandering around the property, they were harmless and added much excitement!
We haven't been to Cancun to stay in several years and the growth surprises me every time I go back. This condo property is located close to the airport with the entire main part of Cancun to the north of it. As Michelle said to us, "it is not walking distance to anywhere." With that said, know that it is a SCHLEP to everywhere. All the properties along the "newer" hotel zone, including this one, are elevated so it is an uphill climb to it after every outing including its own beach. You always have a choice of $1 bus ride or a more expensive cab ride to anywhere and for us, staying here for the day was not an option.
The property is very dated and parts of it are crumbling. The room we stayed in with two double beds was in good shape. Our specific desire was to sit on the balcony and have coffee in the morning, which we couldn't do because the sun rises and beats down on this balcony. Also, we couldn't see the beach which was our other desire. We could hear the surf, at times, between loud songs that are played at the pool from 8am sharp to 10pm. None of this is Michelle's fault, it is ours for not asking the right questions. After one visit to the pool on this property, we were hell bent to find another pool to visit.
The best thing we did was take the bus to the ferry for Isla de Mujeres and spent time on the beach there under a palapa. It was paradise there.
We enjoyed eating at Santos Mariscos and the Distelaria. Both recommendations from Michelle. Communication with Michelle was perfect until I logged on to her wireless. Then, I couldn't communicate with her any longer through airbnb email, I had to text through my phone. Michelle is very sweet and wants to be of help.
We decided this was our last trip to Cancun, for a while, at least. We are not partiers, not interested in where the next alcoholic beverage is coming from and Cancun's purpose in the world seems to be furnishing the masses with tequila or providing rich people with upscale shopping opportunities.
It is important to note :
I respond to emails immediately as my iPad is with me and I'm online every minute of the day , all 300 reviews note this
If you have ocean view you face EAST which means the sun is on your balcony in the morning .
If you are in Cancuns hotel zone " nothing is walking distance " because our resorts are huge so everyone takes the bus , fortunately buses run 24 hours and every minute of the day conveniently right out front .
The island is only 12 miles long so we are not far from anything , 18 years living at Solymar and we don't own a car :)
The POOL is very busy with Mexican tourism July and August with many families , but it's also July and August that the beach is like a lake , so perfect as seen in photos here .
Do read other reviews - there is a reason we are number one in Cancun on TRIPADVISOR :)
Tuvimos una muy buena experiencia al hospedarnos con Michelle. La habitación estaba limpia y todo en orden. Ella fue de mucha ayuda, nos dio muy buenos consejos para lugares donde comer y pasear por Cancún, así como buenos tips para el uso del trasporte público. Esta súper cerca del aeropuerto, muy recomendable. Definitivamente regresaría!
Michelle is a great host, really helpful and fast to answer all the questions you may have. I definitely recommend the location, it is a great place to be close from all the big hotels and malls of the zona hoteleria while having a great and calm beach at your door.
Beautiful beach for walking and swimming. The condo is located near the end of the hotel zone and makes for a long bus ride into Cancun however as mentioned before ... the buses and taxis are readily available.
Thank you Barbara ! Yes we are located in the TOURISTIC HOTEL ZONE which is all beaches, restaurants, malls and big hotels, a few condos. If you want to go into " el centro " (not much need unless you want Costco and Sams and big grocery ) it takes 25 - 35 minutes .
This is a great place for the price. There's easy access to the beach and the kitchenette is perfect for keeping your snacks in. While it is a bit of a hike from the bars and clubs, the bus service is great, costs less than a dollar, and runs all the time.

About the Host, Michelle
I love what I do here in Cancun and I have held the #1 position on Tripadvisor for the quality of my rooms and attention to my guests.
I traded Canada for Cancun when I was 24 because I had a desire to never have to return to " reality" after vacation again. Mexico proved to be a wonderful place to live.
For ten years I worked in all the top luxury hotels in front end service and I learned so many things that can help you have a fabulous experience. I'm here full time, not an absentee owner.
The desire to vacation never went away and we enjoy it more than ever. Every four months we head overseas to major world cities to open our minds and have new experiences .... and are always looking for ways to serve you better ~ we love what we do .
Sincerely , Michelle
