We had such a fantastic time in Puerto Aventuras. This condo was very clean and had plenty of room for my husband and me. The view was beautiful. I would love to return someday.
We loved the studio and the 1 bedroom apartment with the connecting door. The location is more than perfect and both units are well equiped. The cleaning service was excellent and the property management very responsive to some minor issues (internet going out). We want to return next year!!!!
We visited with our 1 year old daughter and can't say enough nice things about this property. Our hostess Lachlan arranged for the use of a high chair and pack and play (both in excellent condition!), so helpful! The location was very quiet, far away from the night life and we rarely if ever heard any of the neighbors in the adjacent units.
The condo itself: Very nice, very modern, very clean! Comfortable bed, spacious for a two bedroom. The in unit laundry was great (better than at home!). The kitchen was very basic, probably on average less "stuff" than we have found at other rentals - but it certainly wasn't a big deal - we kept our meals pretty basic as the restaurants here were very good!
The Location: I had a hard time discerning from all the rental write ups about the specifics of the beach, location etc (maybe it was me). But the view here is gorgeous! Both from the bedroom and main living area.
The beach: The beach out front is rocky, there are nice sandy terraces with lounge chairs just below the unit for catching rays, but I wouldn't plan on swimming there. But if you are going to the sandy side of the beach its on the other side of the pool, so running up for more refreshments will take a few minutes (trust me - not a big deal). The beach itself is beautiful, powdery sand (some areas a little pebbly). There are trees at the beach so easy to find a sunny or shady spot, also great for us fair haired folks and we never had a problem finding chairs. The swimming area is surrounded by a rock wall, so not a lot of waves (again perfect for the little ones), but very easy to get out to the bay for snorkeling. The residents are super friendly and will be happy to weigh in on where to eat and what to do!
Other practical stuff: The grocery store is a 5 minute cab ride away (we had a car), it is like a mini Walmart. So mommas, you'll be able to buy those bulky diapers, beach toys, baby shampoo etc, vs traveling with them. Also the internet connection was very good - my husband had to work a couple days and had some issues uploading large files in a timely manner. But its fast enough to stream a movie (we brought our chromecast). The cleaning service came twice during our 8 day stay and were very thorough and kind!
All in all - you won't regret renting here, it is fabulous!
We loved this condo. The location is great and from the apartment you can see and hear the sea both in the living room and in the bedroom. The sunset is amazing from the living room and the maintenance of this place is quite good. You can walk to restaurants and stores (we recommend to get your fruit and vegetables on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the plaza just near the post office). We loved to go to 2 Chiles Restaurant and La Caleta, both are really good. If you like trying authentic Italian pizza, Paparazzi is also great. Our daughters really enjoyed the swimming pool and the beach. At the airport we took Cancunvalet and it was more expensive than a taxi but it was safe and reliable. The owner was really nice and he answered all our questions.Thank you for letting us stay at this place, we promise to come back!
Great condo. It was clean. The grounds were beautiful. Not one thing was missing to make the stay wonderful. We enjoyed the pools and sitting on the balcony. We will be back for sure. Just Perfect!
The condo is exactly as pictured on the website. Both the condo and the grounds are clean and well-maintained. What distinguishes this from other places we have rented is: several housekeeping visits during the week, an in-unit washer and dryer, ample supply of drinking water, toilet paper, Kleenex, soap, and paper towels; and a very well equipped kitchen. The main patio has a really nice view of the ocean and is a great place for breakfast, lunch, and sunset cocktails. Location is also a factor here as you are within easy driving distance of Akumal, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and many activities. The Chedraui grocery store is a 5 minute drive and there are restaurants within walking distance.

Just returned from 10 nights wishing we had stayed longer. Condo offers everything you could possibly need, but it is the unobstructed ocean view(s) that sets it apart from your typical 400 sq ft / $350 per night hotel room. I will never again pay those dastardly prices when I could have far more for far less. Although we never had the opportunity to meet owner's Libby & Lachlan, they are only a phone call away to respond to any needs that may arise. An everything-you-need-to-know email will be provided prior to your departure. Can't say enough positive things about this facility. Bye the way, you can't go wrong with Dos Chiles restaurant. We ate there 8 nights. Frank & Maria
