My girlfriend and I stayed at Fernando's place in Cancun April 2014. It is a nice, quiet location north of all the clubs and bars in zona hotelara. We preferred the calm and quiet. There is a beach and ferry to Isla Mujeres right across the street and you can take a short cab or drive to the heart of hotel zone. The apartment was clean but hot water ran out quickly and there were no towels or blankets. Other than that, Fernando was very accommodating and met us when we arrived late - due to a delayed flight - and early in the morning when we left. Very nice guy and easy to contact through airbnb messages. I recommend this place to anyone looking for the basics and a safe, quiet place to stay!
Fernando was very helpful and a great host. The apartment is as listed - basic and functional. There are fans and aircon, although both options are very loud. Kitchen had a few basics which was helpful, but didn't have any saucepans. The pool area onto the lagoon was beautiful and really well maintained. The location is great - just 10 mins on the R-1 from downtown Cancun, and the street is right opposite Playa Tortugas and the ferry to Isla Mujeres. Playa Tortugas was crowded and set up with restaurants and shops. Shower pressure, as said by someone else, was great, and WIFI and cable TV both worked well. Double bed is small for 2 people, but there are 2 single beds in the other room if needed. Overall, a great place to stay if you want a base for exploring Cancun, and well serviced with regular buses.
Fernando is a great man and I know that he could be a great host if he will take more time and attention for all values to rent his apartments on Airbnb.
Unfortunately my communication with Fernando went blooey completely. Although I asked many questions... A lot of promises, but in fact the result was - ZERO.
Fernando, I am sure that you can make this much better as now!
Super convenient and a great price in the hotel zone. Just moments walk from the Playa Tortugas bus stop which is perfect for going to/from downtown Cancun and moving between places along the hotel strip. Also a ferry to Isla Mujeres is across the road - great for day trips. I have to say - the best shower experience I had I Mexico! :) Most places we've been to use solar/wind power so the water is usually lukewarm and low pressure - but in Fernando's flat we've had perfect showers! :) We met Fernando and his son and they are lovely, gave us a ride to the dinner place, overall great experience.
Fernando's place was perfect for our needs! It was clean, had good beds, hot water and a shower. It was a real bargain especially given the location - the apartment is right across the road from the beach. Fernando himself was extremely helpful and told us to contact him if we needed anything. I would definitely come back again!
Fernando and his partner made our stay very comfortable, they suggested many places to go to that we had not though of ourselves and even took us to dinner one night. The room was comfortable and had a new bed, sheets and towels were provided. There is an adjoining private bathroom with shower to the bedroom room. We made good use of their kitchen, which was convenient as there is a big Wallmart supermarket within a 5 minute walk. One thing is that their street won't come up on (website hidden) maps, it seems the area is so new it is not registered as yet, however the entrance to their gated community can be seen on (website hidden) maps. It is a very safe area and we were surrounded with polite neighbours. Also, don't let Taxi's fool you into paying more than 50 pesos from downtown Cancun to get back to their place, there is also a bus that takes you both ways for 9 pesos, bus 26, the schedule and route of this bus also isn't online, but it goes from the entrance of their community to downtown Cancun every 20 minutes and from there you can get on the 9 pesos hotel zone bus which comes every 5 minutes to the beach. Overall we had a very pleasant stay over New Years. Thanks Fernando.
Muy buen lugar si es que estas buscando estar bien ubicada y no contas con mucho dinero.
A 2 cuadras de la playa y economico para lo grande que es.
se los recomiendo!!
I stayed in this apartment for 4 days. It has all what you need: Internet WiFi, kitchen, pool, 2 rooms and the location is near to several places.
Just crossing the street, you have playa tortugas and the ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres. Or you can take a taxi or bus just in the street to go anywhere you like (downtown, market, beaches, La Isla,etc.)
Fernando was really helpful of anything I needed. He called me everyday to check if I needed something in particular and the last day he offered my a rye to the airport at a lower rate that the taxi cabs.
I have a good experience staying here
We loved staying at Fernando's apartment. Fernando is very friendly,nice, and helpful with his guests. The apartment we rented was cozy,comfortable for two people and right by the beach. I will recommend staying at his apartment anytime! :) Gracias Fer!
Fernando and his partner Sylwia were very helpful, and patient with us even though we were slightly late arriving and early departing! The only issue we had was that the cell phone number he had listed on his profile was not current, but he is very responsive to airbnb messges.
The apartment is clean, spacious, and pleasant. The street is lovely, quiet, and nothing like the rest of the Zona Hotelera. Along with towels and sheets, they provided shampoo, TP, water, and some juices, which was very helpful! Right across the street is a taxi stop, two convenience stores, a lovely little beach, two restaurants (the family-style one is much better than the other), and ferry rides to Isla Mujeres. You can also pick up the bus there, which is a short ride to the center of town.
I suppose it really depends what you want to do while you are in Cancun, but if you are looking to enjoy a michelada by the beach, stay away from other tourists and tacky nightlife, and have a jump-off point for exploring Quintana Roo, this is really ideal: a little hidden taste of true paradise in a tourist-soaked town!
