SOY DE CANCUN MEXICO
Paula's place was great. Right across the road from a shopping centre and next door to two great resturants. Perfect for a visit to quieter cancun - it's not immediately close to the hotel zone. The apartment was awesome anyhow!!
Paula's place is an incredible value for the location, privacy, amenities. Paula is a wonderful host and provided me with not only assistance when needed, but also information on where to go and things to see.
The apartment itself is in a great location. The complex is gated with 24HR video so you feel very safe. There are benches in the courtyard and plenty of places to sit in the shade and enjoy a good book or listen to music. Everything you will need for your stay in Cancun is located nearby. Right across the street is Plaza de Americanas which is Cancun's premiere shopping center- food court, supermarket, shopping, cinema, people-watching, Starbucks... The mall has it all.
Going left out the gate will allow you access to 24HR stores, plenty of restaurants, Plaza de Toro (Cantinas, taqueria and grill, live-music, dancing all week), and the bus stop to the beach is about 10 minutes away. For about $1US you can catch a bus to Cancun's beaches, the Hotel Zone, and other shopping centers!
Going right out the gate and you hit Tullum Ave which is the main downtown throughway. There are plenty of boutique hotels, a Casino, Chedraui, restaurants galore, beauty salons, spas, barbers, and plenty of shopping to be found within walking distance. As soon as you hit downtown (5 minute walk) you again have access to all the buses headed into the Hotel Zone.
The apartment is nicely furnished and highly suitable for the independent traveler or couple. The living area and kitchen are separate from the bedroom and bathroom which provides such a nice sense of privacy. Wi-Fi is provided for the complex and I found that it worked best in the front living area or front balcony. There are chairs and couch, with a nice sized refrigerator, sink, and stove. Counter space in the kitchen is ample and a microwave will also allow you to reheat leftovers or even prepare quick snacks. The bedroom has AC, cable TV, plenty of storage space, and as a bonus a lockable drawer for anything you want to keep more secure. The bed is nice and comfortable with clean linens and fluffy pillows provided.
I enjoyed my stay in Paula's apartment very much and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, well-maintained apartment in a great central location.
Paula's place is a great find in Cancun. Its really centrally located, near both the hotel zone, the beach, a mall, and the center of town. Parking onsite was convenient and the check in process was easy.
I would recommend this place for an independent traveler that doesn't need a present host. I prefer to travel this way, and with my rental car, good wifi, and emergency contact number - I had everything I needed.
The property is cute, convenient, has all the amenities, and is safe. I enjoyed the luxury of having my own kitchen to prepare meals when I didn't feel like going out.
Great experience, I'd recommend!
Response from Paula:
Thank you very much Jade for your words.
I hope so have you back with us very soon.
Very nice and spacious apartment in excellent location. Right across the road from the big shopping mall where you can catch the bus to the beaches, shop and eat. The bed was very comfy! The microwave didn't work and the jug part of the blender was missing but the fridge worked well. Was quiet until about 10pm but there must of been a pub or bar with live music right near the back windows in the bedroom and there was very loud music blasting into the room until 6am on 2 of the 3 nights we stayed we were very sleep deprived. Very nice and good value apartment, and friendly host!
