The Villa is located in the center of the hotel zone. The hotel zone of Cancun is the long, thin stretch of land between Nichupte Lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico. It is connected to mainland Cancun through bridges at the southern and northern end. As evidenced by the name, the hotel zone is dominated by many luxury hotels. Shopping centers and restaurants are next in line, because it's rather inconvenient to drive all the way to mainland Cancun for shopping and dining, especially if you are in the middle of the hotel zone. Facing the Lagoon side are numerous marinas, plazas, and open-air restaurants, so there is always something to do. The main shopping centers are Plaza Caracol , Plaza Flamingo , Plaza Kukulcán , and La Isla Mall. Each features boutiques, souvenirs, chains, markets and restaurants.
All the nightclubs and bars are also located here, only a few minutes from the villa by bus or cab.
The nearest supermarket is located 2 km away from the villa and public transport is readily available. For transportation to and from the airport we recommend (website hidden), a safe and reliable service which you can reserve and pay on their site. They will be expecting you at the airport and will know exactly where to take you. The price is roughly the same as getting a cab at the airport.
It was nice vacation. Iris, Norris mother, was waiting for us at the villa and accommodated our early arrival around 12:30 PM. The Villa was as described and seen in the photos. Maria (house-keeper)was there every day to take care of everything including laundry, she is great. There was a problem with air-condition unit in the third room, and was fixed within 2 days.
One issue we had was using hotel restaurants/bars. You can't buy any food or drinks in the hotel (it is all-inclusive, you have to have a wrist band to get anything). We tried to buy all-inclusive and that was not easy, need authorization from the villa owner and had to be done sometime on Monday afternoon (we were there Sunday morning). We have 2 kids and had to go outside of the hotel to get food and drinks or eat out for 2 days. That was hard especially first day of arrival when were planning to just stay in the hotel and eat there for lunch and dinner.
So, It is really good place if you want stay on the beach have plenty of room, with plan to buy your food and drinks on your own from outside the hotel
Book it now! Everything on our stay was handled professionally, the pictures are exactly what you get, and you get so much for your money at this villa. Ocean views from 3 of 4 porches and the feeling of being more remote while being at a secure, clear, well maintained resort. If you want to emulate an all inclusive experience, this isn't for you but you have access to all the pools and amenities of the facility but for the (over-priced) food and (watered-down) drinks. A quick and easy trip to the grocery store will make your money go so much farther and you get to enjoy a lovely villa with plenty of room and ocean goodness. We stayed for 5 days and made one trip to story via easy-breezy bus with inexpensive cab home. Oceanside cocktails and beach living defined the trip and the villa was everything we hoped for and more. Book it!
Norris' mother was at the villa to greet us and show the villa to us, she was very helpful and made us feel at home. Excellent views, clean and comfort, beach and pool were about two minutes out of our door. Definitely would like to return. Good location.
Norris' place was fantastic. Exactly as advertised and the pictures are accurate. The views are stunning and the beach is a few steps away. We were greeted by Norris' mom, Iris, who actually owns the Villa. She was very welcoming and friendly. She made us feel at home immediately. The property is located within the Omni Hotel complex. The Omni owns most of the Villas but some are privately owned, such as Norris' moms. You will have access to all the facilities of the Omni - beach chairs, pools, Jacuzzi - however, note that the Omni is an all inclusive resort and the owners of private villas cannot "purchase" anything with cash at any of the restaurants or bars. We found this a bit frustrating at first. But Iris can call the Omni and give you permission to buy vouchers for the restaurants and for the beach bars. This works out fine, if a little inconvenient. But, the thing to keep in mind is that you are not staying at the Omni, you are renting a private house that has the added benefit of the Omni's amenities. Also, Maria, the housekeeper, comes daily and is there from 8am - 2pm everyday but Sunday. Maria is very friendly and does a great job. You can make a special arrangement with Maria to have her cook for you as well. We had her do this and her cooking is fantastic - very traditionally Mexican and quite good - she gave us a list of grocery items that she would need to cook for 8 of us for the week and then she prepared breakfast and lunch for us most days. We paid her cash each day at the agreed upon rate (this is a separate deal from Maria's housekeeping services, which Norris and Iris provide. You can discuss this with Maria when you arrive). It's an option but, for us, it was great.
We had a nice vacation at Norris' place and would not hesitate to stay there again.
Overall great experience with Norris, Norris' mom, and Maria the housekeeper. Right in front of the beaches, and you get to utilize the pools from the Omni hotel. The villas are located right on Boulevard Kukulcan and there is only two ways to turn (left or right) so you cannot get lost. If your gonna go grocery shopping, head to El centro (downtown). They have everything there and the food is cheaper/better and authentic. The response time via email was exceptional. My family and I felt really safe, even at night. Make sure you rent a car to make your trip more convenient.
*The only cons was that they were doing construction 4 out of the 9 days we were there, so we had to park a bit far from the villa.
And the internet was super slow. My wife had to work a bit while we were there, but couldn't upload anything bc of the slow internet. The Omni hotel offers faster internet, but you have to pay $12.
This house was extraordinary, we had direct access to the beach, a hot tub and several pools. All of these amenities were available immediately outside the backdoor. The location was absolutely prime. We rented a car, but there is a bus stop close by to access shopping centers and restaurants. However, if you are looking for a grocery store, it can be a bit far. The villa is monitored, so its very safe. Norris has been wonderful in accommodating my family and I. He answered all of my questions. We had originally requested an early check-in and happened to be an hour late arriving, nevertheless, he was very flexible and willing to accommodate our needs. There was also a maid that cleaned and looked after the house which we appreciated as we had used our day to see the Mayan ruins in Chichen itza and Tulum. The house is very spacious, it had three levels and very nice views of the Caribbean Sea. Besides a couple stains on the bathroom towels, everything was clean and well looked after. I would HIGHLY recommend others to rent out this beautiful beach front villa. A big thank you to Norris. I know my family was definitely impressed. We are looking forward to staying at this location again.
