This apartment is on the quiet side of Mahahual. The views and proximity to a dive centre, one of the nicest restaurants in town and beach clubs, makes it easily one of the nicest places to stay. The apartment is new, has all of the amenities you need. Beds are comfortable and it's well organised to host 6-8 people even though it's only a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment. Tona and the manager for the building, as well as the management team of the dive centre were all SUPER helpful in giving us recommendations and helping us arrange pretty much anything we needed. Tona was really responsive and flexible. We had a great stay and won't hesitate to come back!
The number one feature of this Condo is the view. The front balcony is over the malecon (paved pedestrian walkway) with nothing but palm trees and sand between you and the ocean, and the south end of the balcony gives a perfect vista looking down beach and the magnificent clouds at sunset. The rear window opens over the parking area, and the vehicle road to the south beach, and then it is just mangroves and birds to the western horizon. Open the front sliding doors and the back window and you catch every breath of breeze. The beds are super comfortable, the hot water is scalding hot and plentiful, the kitchen has a gas stove, coffee maker, and microwave, and the ultramodern washer/dryer is next to the kitchen.
The strip of beach in front of the condo is available for your use and the sand is kept tidy by a maintenance man. If you want restaurant service without sitting in a crowd, the beach club next door will set up table and chairs on the private beach and serve you there (but they close to the public at 5:30, so don't plan on dinner there; the extended family seem to gather eat and drink there until later, so it looks and sounds as if they are open, but they aren't). There are at least a dozen restaurants within a few minute's walk that are open for dinner, plus a snack store, so don't worry about going hungry.
The only major downside to this condo are the 2 long flights of stairs to get up to it...but if you are in good shape this isn't an issue. When we needed help carrying stuff the nice people at the dive shop helped and if the maintenance man is around a few pesos secure his help.
As Mahahual, and Mexico in general, go, the location is very quiet, but don't expect nothing but waves and wind. There will be trucks, cars, and motorcycles roaring past the back at all hours, the garbage truck and the air tank delivery truck use the malecon early in the morning, and motorcyclists use the malecon in the evening. As mentioned before, the bar next door is happily loud in the evening, but it is locals who have to get up for work, so they tend to call it a day reasonable early. On cruise ship days the nextdoor beach club's beach will be full, but few rowdy walkers get this far south on foot, so there isn't much of that and few vendors find the area worth their time.
All-in-all, this Condo is the best of all worlds: perfect view and beach, close to restaurants, but away from the noise and busy goings on of town.
A great apartment that is in the quieter part of the town that is a 2 minute walk along the beach front, from the restaurants. It had all the mod cons we needed and was very clean a modern.
Adam and Tona were fantastic hosts. They provided great local knowledge of the area and even invited for cocktails on the building roof terrace.
Perfect location for a beach holiday. We didn't want to leave!
Un excelente departamento que se encuentra en la parte más tranquilo del pueblo, a 2 minutos caminando de los restaurantes. Tenía todos los enseres domésticos que necesitas.
Adam y Tona nos invito hasta la terraza del edifico y nos dieron todo la información necesario sobre cosas que hacer en la área local.
Lugar perfecto para unos vacaciones de playa.
Muchas gracias !
Most amazing experience I have had, walking into the room it felt clean and like home, it had everything you could think of needing inside. The beds were comfortable and the view was amazing off the deck to watch the sunrise and just out the front door to watch it set. I will definitely be back.
Adam provides a first class condo in a great location. Upon arriving we noticed how clean everything was from the floors to the bathroom linens folded on the beds as different birds.
Very modern with air conditioning, satellite TV and a fully stocked kitchen.
The condo has amazing views either direction of the Malecon as well as looking out over the ocean and your beach. Being located just a minutes walk south of most of the vendors and restaurant's it also is very quiet location.
This is a great place to go if you want more than just a hotel room, need to stay with your family, or split with two families.
I was very pleased and will be back!
Spacious, modern, beautiful condo with Mexican décor located in the heart of Mahahual. Walking distance to everything: restaurants, shopping, snorkeling and specially the town's best beach. Secure and very private. This condo includes a private pool, available parking, and balcony overlooking one of the best ocean front view. What made it truly special was Adam's and Tona's friendly and gracious help :-))) They truly made us feel at home. We were a family of 8+ (baby) and they made all the necessary accommodations to make sure we were comfortable. The condo worked out just fine: Tip #1 and ONLY tip: Plan, plan, plan! There is so much to do in this town and if you do not organize yourself, time will go by before you know it. Adam and Tona have lots of contacts to assist with tours so be sure to chat with them as soon as you check in to get all your activities scheduled. I promise you, you won't be able to do everything but that's ok, because you can ALWAYS come back :-))) Just as we will!! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING ADAM AND TONA!! We will be seeing you soon!
The Condo is modern and clean with amenities to cook which was important for my group. For a small family, the size is great however, it is tight for more than 4 adults. We did not have internet, nor could the pool be used as it was not full with water; disappointment for the kids.
The property is right on the beach with a wonderful view and a stone's throw away from restaurants and other shops. Overall really nice spot.
