completely wonderful place to stay, a bit confusing given the unique numbering sequence on the property, but after you find the place its really incredible. owners are easy to work with and very helpful
We stayed 9 days at Michelle's condo. It is a beautiful setting with a penthouse view and once we settled in we enjoyed our stay. It was amazing to wake up to beautiful sunrises over the water and we kept out curtains open wide just because of that. I paint watercolors but I realised that I could never paint the beauty I saw from from that window! We took the buses to and from town and they seem to run every couple of minutes. We never did wait any length of time.. We got to really mingle with the Mexican people. They are so friendly. We enjoyed the spontaneous singsongs on the bus!.. Everyone joined in singing Elvis songs! Wish they'd do this on buses in Nova Scotia! We enjoyed the beach and the beautiful turquoise water! If you are looking for a rental for a week or two & are not wanting to stay at an all inclusive, this is the place for you! Thank you Michelle for our stay with you and your kindness!
My husband, 4 children (19, 13, 9, 9) and I stayed in the 2-bedroom condo from Christmas Day to Dec. 30th, 2014. The room surpassed our expectations in size. The views from the 2nd, master bedroom are breathtaking. We all enjoyed the three different patios/decks to relax on. There was more than enough space for all 6 of us and the walls are not thin. We rested very well each night. Peter and Michelle are very hospitable and keep their word on all that is discussed and agreed upon. My only issue with the location is the staff in the building. This is not a resort and do not expect them to be very hospitable. They didn't even have a blender at the outdoor bar, LOL! BUT...we weren't at all-inclusive and we weren't paying resort fees, so once we accepted that, we were all happy.
We were in Cancun for reasons other than a vacation and didn't want to spend a lot of money on just a few days lodging. Plus, we've never been fans of all-inclusives. This property fit the bill for us perfectly. We had 3 teenage boys and we had plenty of room with the extra room added. The view can't be beat nor can the beach that is uncrowded and beautiful. The property itself is in need of repairs and things are far from pristine but we felt it gave us a much more authentic feel for the area and also met all our needs. It took a day to understand how to get to restaurants but once we did, we went downtown and ate at great venues Michelle recommended. We saw LOTS of Cancun in our few short days because we weren't tied to our hotel. It was great!
Michelle and Peter go above and beyond to meet any needs you may have. They alone make the difference!!
If we ever return to Cancun, we won't hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you, Michelle! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
If you stay here, don't use Betty as the driver. She never showed up at the airport! The apartment is great! So close to rhe beach, great storage, rooftop view. Very romantic. Michelle is wonderful and takes care of all your needs. Very kind. Very helpful.
We stayed at Solymar a couple of months ago and it was a great experience. The place is just as described and just as beautiful as the pictures.
This was my third time to the riviera maya and in the past I've done the all inclusive hotels which are excellent but this time around I wanted to try renting a place to compare cost. Obviously you will have to figure out the food but there are plenty of places around to eat for the right price. Since you have a kitchen is really easy to save money on breakfast and prepare lunch, we only spent money on dinner.
Michelle is an amazing host, she will be there for anything you need and will reply to any questions within minutes.
This is a great option if you are traveling on a budget and you still want to be in the main part of Cancun.
The location of the condo is one of the best that you can get in the whole Solymar complex.
This a great place and we will definetly be back!
