On one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Maroma Bay Beach, is Villa Angela, a gem of a property consisting of several villas. These villas are the creation of architect Jose Luis Moreno who incorporated Mayan design principles and built them with his team of indigenous craftsmen. The villas, the gardens and the beach access are wonderfully integrated, very private, exclusive and are right on the beach. We have been returning to Villa Angela for several years as it has what we look for when going away, namely a home away from home. It is conveniently located, only half an hour from Cancun airport and easily reachable either by rental car or via arranged pickup service.
Lavish breakfast, which is served in the villas, as well as maid service is included. The people providing the services have worked for the property for many years and go out of their way to make sure that all is to one’s satisfaction. A multi-lingual innkeeper for the villas takes care of any special wishes to make one’s stay stress free. For us, coming back is being part of a family that takes good care of you.
The beach is absolutely incredible! My wife and I have been looking for the perfect beach all our lives in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and South-East Asia. Having found Maroma Beach we stopped looking. And having found the Villa Angela is the icing on the cake.
Playa del Carmen is only 15 minutes away to the south and Porto Morelos is about 10 minutes to the north. While there are many dining options in these locations, we highly recommend Pavo Real, the restaurant associated with villas. The restaurant, another stunning architectural creation by Jose Luis Moreno, has outstanding cuisine. Chef Guillaume Raynal, trained at top restaurants in Paris, has been the chef since 2010. He transforms the freshest products of the Maya region into the most delicious and memorable dishes and always welcomes special wishes and fulfills them to perfection. We cannot wait to return again to the little paradise of Villa Angela.
