“Abbey del Sol is my choice in Puerto Morelos”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I first learned of this wonderful fishing village in the early 1990s, while working in the travel industry. With the Mexican government's push to develop Cancun into the corporate all-inclusive resort area that exists today, small villages dotting the coast to the south became endangered. Today, lovely Puerto Morelos is really the sole survivor that remains north of Tulum.
.
What makes PM special is the high percentage of small business ownership by people who actually invest AND live in the community. When you spend money in PM, it stays in PM and supports the vitality and sustainability of a rapidly disappearing small town coastal culture in the Yucatán. Abbey del Sol is a fine example of foreign owners (American) who, 10 plus years ago, made a substantial investment and live here a good chunk of the year. Tiff and Abbey rely upon an operations team headed by two exceedingly capable locals, Jin and Pilar, who, in turn, depend upon the dedication of a sizable group of PM residents to make your visit smooth and pleasant. In fact, they routinely exceed my expectations and I can be a tough critic.
.
My recent 10 day stay included 5 nights in Casa Anita, a charming and comfortable 2 bedroom ranch with pool and adjacent lawn/garden space great for ambling aimlessly with your morning cup or glass of wine in the evening. Even though I was alone on this trip, I simply love this house and was totally ecstatic that it was available on short notice. Yes, I could have stayed in smaller, less expensive accommodations (and did for my last 5 days), but this house delivers a special ambience in this seaside community and I took advantage. The incremental cost is an excellent value and proved well worth it!
.
The features are as they describe. No exceptions found. Here is my list of my top ten faves: 1) the privacy, 2) the many songbirds and flowering perennials, 3) the view of and easy walk to the beach (if I owned the house, I would buy that adjacent lot!), 4) the extra space, 5) the large bathroom and shower with good water pressure, 6) the well-stocked kitchen with plenty of counter space for food prep, 7) the in-room safe for my electronics, passport and extra cash, 8) the pool for cooling off after a day in the sun (shower first, please!) or for waking in the morning after too much wine the night before, 9) plenty of high quality thick cotton towels for bath or beach, and 10) the steady breeze that flows through the abundant screened doors and windows making billowing sails of the light-filtering draperies. It is a wonderful base for a small family -- completely functional and easy to keep tidy. But it can also be intimate and romantic when desired.
.
I have recommended one modest upgrade to the managers: black out curtains in the east seaside bedroom would be welcome to extend a morning's sleep. The light pours in pretty early and, fortunately, I had a sleep mask. You may want to bring one too. I was also aware of early morning street noise as the town comes alive. Not terribly intrusive but it will not be as quiet as you may expect if you are used to a stand-alone resort compound. I would also like to see them add a lower lumens lamp in the front room for late night ambient lighting allowing the brighter lamps to be turned off. And an undershelf task spot in the kitchen for the same reason. Lastly, a word of caution for families with young non-swimming children: the pool is open access, approx 5 feet deep, and you will need to actively supervise them.
.
In short, I will return to stay at Casa Anita, alone again, with companion, or with my young adult children and their friends though 6 is maximum when bringing the futon into play. You wouldn't want any more than that here anyway. As for the staff of Abbey, they are among the best at personal service that I have encountered in my many travels anywhere.
.
I highly recommend.
