We absolutely loved our stay in #409. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The beach was just right outside our door. We spent our days walking the white, powder beaches, swimming in the crystal blue water and lounging by the swimming pool and our nice eating out at wonderful restaurants and dancing the night away at the local...

This was our 6th trip to Cancun. We have stayed at a number of timeshares and hotels in the past. This was one of our favorite stays, as the units were just what we were looking for. We stayed in Unit # 436, owned by Frank John and Jackie. Everything from their instructions to get transportation at the airport, to...

My three sons and I stayed at Villas Marlin in the beginning of January. Our 3-bedroom unit was large enough to provide everyone with their space and came with many of the comforts of home. The location was ideal-right across the street from Plaza Kulkulcan, <1 mile from La Isla mall and <2 miles from Plaza Flamingo, yet right on...

We rented Villa #429 from Frank and Jackie (owners). We wired the money (no credit cards accepted). This was fine. No issues, other than the cost and hassle of the wire transfer. Frank recommended a car service to get us to and from Cancun airport to the Villas Marlin called "Cancun Transfer" and they were PERFECT both ways. TRUST ME,...

Villas Marlin is a Condo Complex with Villas rented by many owners and several rental agencies. The apartments range from those that have had nothing done to them since they were constructed, and may not be so "nice"..... to apartments that have been completely renovated, are luxurious and beautifully appointed. What you get depends on your carefully researching the various...

Alvin and Fernando could not have been more accommodating, from the initial reservation right through to helping us with our bags to get to the airport for our return. Not only were they always a quick phone call away, one of them was usually hanging out at the pool, helping other guests, or just generally around when we needed them....

Villas Marlin was the PERFECT vacation for our family. Alvin and Fernando were outstanding hosts!
