“Quiet location right on the beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My husband and I and our 2 college-age kids stayed here for 7 nights and we would go back again. The apartment is quite small and on the 4th floor with no elevator, but the view overlooking the pool and beach was awesome and the location was very quiet and peaceful. There were a couple TV channels in English and the Wi-Fi worked fine for skyping and staying in touch with work and for my kids to do their homework. The hot water made a scary screeching noise when we turned on the shower (every time) but alas there was plenty of hot water.
The kitchen is fully equipped although we only used the refrigerator and microwave for breakfast and snacking. There is a water dispenser tank for drinking water that you need to swap out at the little store downstairs but it cost less than $4 and one tank lasted for the week. The electric bill was less than $40 for the week. There is a small safe where we kept our valuables and it was big enough to stash 2 laptops and a lot more. And there were 8 luxury beach towels in addition to the regular bath and hand towels for the shower.
A couple negative points: There were no extra pillows. And there were ants in the kitchen but we bought a can of RAID at Wal-mart and that helped. We also were sure to keep all food items in the refrigerator or in sealed bags. We also finished the 2 rolls of toilet paper that were provided and needed to buy another roll. There wasn't any soap in the bathroom but there was dish soap in the kitchen. It's not a big deal but I wished I had noticed that before we did our initial shopping spree at Walmart.
Bellamar is a gated community and the security guards at the front gate were extremely helpful with advice on taking the bus and where to go for shopping and to eat. There is also a very friendly group of long-term tenants/owners to live there who invited us to a BBQ and gave us lots of tourism-type advice. The private beach is beautifully maintained and there are plenty of beach chairs and tables. My husband and I enjoyed the peacefulness but our kids were envious of the other beach front areas and would have preferred to be among the crowds of college kids that were at the all-inclusive beaches to either side of us.
Take the bus. The cost is 9.5 pesos or less than $1. It is extremely easy to figure out and we found the bus drivers (and other passengers) to be helpful. The first day we paid 150 pesos to take a cab from the condo to the main Hotel Zone nightlife. After that we took a bus for a fraction of the cost. Our cab back to the airport was 300 pesos for 4 people with 4+ suitcases. There is a cab stand on the main street in front of the condo. The Barcelo Costa hotel is just in front of the Bellamar Condos so we used that as a landmark to identify when to get off the bus or to tell the cab driver.
There are not many places to eat that are within walking distance. Across the main road and slightly to the right is a 7-11 type convenience store (called OXXO) where you can find any supplies you forgot to get on your initial run to Walmart. THere are also small Mexican fast-food places there that we tried for lunch. Nothing special. If you walk down the beach to the right, there is a fun bar that has cheap margarittas and a small menu. It's called Prirate's bar or something like that and is right in front of where the Pirate cruises depart. If you walk down the beach quite far to the left, you will find Coco's restaurant which was really good. Otherwise, your best bet for dinner is to go to the heart of the Hotel Zone - get off at Coco Bongo's or Hard Rock or Senor Frogs. You can't miss it. Go the Mex-treme one night because they are really entertaining. Further down we liked Margarittaville and Bubba Gumps.

“Your own slice of Caribbean paradise just steps from your condo”

Upon arrival our jaws dropped as we took in the beauty of the Bellamar beach through the large open windows. Never in our vacations travels did we experience such an amazing situation as having the beach and pool only a sea shell toss away. Owner Nancy not only patiently addressed our every query she even pre stocked our fridge to get us started. The condo supplied all of our living needs and more. All local amenties were easily accessible as the efficient bus system of Cancun was simple to navigate. In the 5 weeks we stayed we rode the bus 34 times and never had an issue. The drivers and the residents were friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful time and very much appreciated the care Nancy took to make our stay special.

“Perfect respite condo!”

This is exactly what we needed. My partner and I wanted a quick 5-day get-a-way from our working lives to sit on the beach and eat Mexican food. We could not have asked for a better location. The beach is large and private, with the occasional beach walker strolling by. The condo is located near the Embarcadero port and so there is also the occasional noise associated with ferry boats, day cruises, and the pirate ships coming and going, but we found that fun to watch rather than a bother. This was the ideal location for us because we were not interested in the all-inclusive hotels - we wanted the flexibility to adventure out to find our own lunch/dinner restaurants rather than eating at the hotel. We made our own breakfast each morning in the adequately equipped kitchen. Nancy (the owner) asked for a grocery list and stocked the refrigerator with all of our groceries ahead of our arrival so we did not have to navigate the grocery store experience. I would recommend a day trip to Isla Mujeres to visit Garrafon National Park. We had a great day of zip line, snorkeling, hiking, and swimming adventures. Additionally, the restaurant Dolcemente Pompei was our favorite -- it's Italian food in Mexico which is not really what we went to Mexico for, but it was still delicious - some of the best vanilla ice cream I have ever had. There is not an elevator for this condo complex and the unit we stayed in was on the 4th floor, so if someone in your family needs help with stairs, this may not be the best option. However, I know that Nancy has other condos available on lower levels, too. Quiet, comfortable, and a beautiful ocean breeze that flows through the condo all day makes this the spot I want to come back to!
