“terrific value, charm and location”
Reviewed 12 December 2009

We thought Color de Verano Village apt's. were terrific! We found the location to be very good and the owners are happy to meet you needs. It's an easy walk to the beaches and town. We stayed in the Penthouse. The view is wonderful from inside the apartment and from it's large private rooftop balcony. You can see from in front of Privileges Aluxes to the end of the peninsula, which of course includes seeing the beachfront, Cancun and all the boats coming and going. You can also see behind you from the balcony and look down Lopez Mateos street and watch the kids at the school behind the apartment.

The balcony is generous. It runs in front of the apartment and along the North side all in one piece. It is equipped with 2 padded chairs with footstools, a table with 4 chairs, and two loungers, plus a hot tub. All private to the penthouse. The front portion is covered by an awing, so you can sit there comfortably any time of the day.

The Penthouse apartment is really cute with windows all around 3 sides, so you can see the ocean from everywhere in the apartment, and you can see it when you sit up in bed in the morning! We were met by the owner Teresa, who took us upstairs to introduce us to the apartment, which is four flights up. It is a small 1 bedroom apartment. There was a bottle of wine in the refrigerator, coffee with filters, and a large container of purified water. Every day we were provided with more coffee grounds. They also provide free - more water, paper towels, bath soap, large beach towels, two beach chairs and an umbrella, and bicycles if you request them and free DSL so just ask them to hook you up. There is Maid Service everyday except Sunday.

With arrangement a day ahead, they will fix you breakfast or lunch for an extra fee which varies depending on what you order. There is a full length mirror in the living room so that ladies can dry their hair while hubby is in the shower. Just bring your extension cord. There is no clock. There is usually space to park your golf cart out front on Lopez Mateos.

The only possible con to the Penthouse is the water pressure in the shower. It is minimal but you can get clean for sure, just allow a little more time for your shower. And it's not so bad taking longer because you can see the ocean while taking your shower, and there is a large built-in mirror for shaving in the shower too. Our first night we discovered we had no hot water. It was turned off, so you might want to check right away.

Color de Verano used to have a little cafe on the first floor, but closed it last spring. Now they are finishing up a couple studios in that space which we saw and they are very nice. We also saw one of the 1 bedroom apartments and it is quite spacious and is larger than the penthouse. Other than the penthouse, all the other apartment balcony's face Lopez Mateos and Privileges Aluxes, but you can see a bit of the ocean and beach from them. All apartments have air conditioning.

Jax's Sports Bar is next door so it's easy to run over for a drink or something to eat or take-out. We were there at just the beginning of high season so there wasn't any band but I hear they do have them or Kareoke sometimes. I can't comment on the noise level but have been told it isn't bad or doesn't extend much into the morning hours and it's maybe only a couple nights a week. The traffic on both streets isn't a noise issue at all, because it's mainly golf carts and scooters.

After spending 12 nights at a budget apartment, we decided to check the availability of Color de Verano for our last two nights. We stayed in the first floor apartment and enjoyed the apartment immensely. It was clean, comfy bed, and daily maid service was a real treat. All of the woodwork, tables, etc., were handcrafted by the owner. We ended both of our days with handmade icecream from the bistro on the mail level, and the service was superb every time we've ever eaten breakfast there. Probably the best on the island, in our opinion. We enjoyed our stay so much, we put our names down for next year. When we arrived home we learned the dates we wanted in 2010 were available. It didn't take us long to jump on that opportunity. We're looking forward to our visit in February/March.

My wife booked this place over the internet and we were very happy with it. We stayed on the island about four years ago, and these apartments are the way to go. The last time we were here we stayed just down the street in a little one room hotel. With a small child these apartments were the way to go. The rooms are clean and modern. The only complete that we would have is the traffic from the street is constant. You get use to it, but if you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring some ear plugs.

These are apartments. There are only 3 in the building. Apartments are in the el centro area and are very handy to everything. The beach is right across the street. Owners are great. Complete cooking facilities, washing facilities for clothes, free bicycles, refrigerator, stove, coffee maker, purified water, daily maid service. This is a great place to stay and so clean and the beds are very comfy. The first and third floor apartments have a jacuzzi available on the deck. This is oh so wonderful first thing in the morning. There is a coffee shop connected to these apartments and a sports bar on the corner about 50 steps. This is a great place and you will not be disappointed if you book this complex.
