The Villa Arrecife is a beautiful and amazing house. The pictures are very accurate as well as the description. We rented the home as an additional home for a wedding vow renewal that we had in the area. Our family enjoyed the property and amenities of the area and what the resort had to offer as well. The beach is...

About the neighbourhood
Villa Arrecife is located in the residential gated community of the Grand Sirenis Resort in the beautiful Mayan Riviera, Mexico!
No matter what your fancy, the Mayan Riviera has it - golfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, exploring archeological sites and underground caves, horseback riding, shopping, nightlife, beaching and relaxing!!! With so many choices located close to Villa Arrecife, this is the perfect location for an intimate family get away!
Getting around
While I generally recommend renting a car as it is nice to have the freedom to impulsively visit any and all sites you can think of, there are other means of travel.
To get from the airport to the villa there are numerous transfer services which are all generally around the same price.
Taxis are available and if you wish to book one, please let Alex our Property Manager know as he can arrange one for you. Some guests have taken the driver's business card and used their services exclusively during the course of their stay!
There are also small passenger vans that travel up and down Hwy 307 which are known as Collectivo. This is an extremely inexpensive way to travel around the Riviera, and it is like a miniature city bus.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Cancun Airport: 87.0 km
Ferry: Playa del Carmen: 32.0 km
Once you leave Cancun airport, take highway 307 South (follow the signs that say to Playa del Carmen). This highway runs straight along the coast and you will reach Grand Sirenis Resort in approximately 50 to 60 minutes. You actually drive past the entrance and take the Retorno that is in the left lane immediately after you see the arches at the entrance gate. This allows you to switch over to the other side of the highway. Drive up to the security gate and inform them that you are a resident and staying at Villa Arrecife #124 (I recommend that you print the welcome package out to take with you; it has a photo of the villa on the front that you can show the guard). Stick to the right side of the loop road until you see #124!
