This is a safe location, very close to pristine beaches (Playa Paraiso is tucked in between Ibeostar and Mayan Palace resorts and Mexican beaches are all public). The staff and management is very helpful and timely. The unit has 2 full master suites, well equipped kitchen, close access to the small swimming pool (great place to go after being on the beach during the day). The trip to Playa del Carmen is around 15 minutes. We found it more fun to take our 2 kids to Puerto Morelos for dinner and small town shopping. Playa was great with relatively easy parking. We rented a car from AVIS which was a bit pricey for my taste, but, gave us an incredible sense of freedom, exploring Tulum, Xcaret, XelHa and Cancun. The price was really reasonable. We tried the IOQsea.com delivery service for the 1st day, then did our own supermarket shopping. That really helped. With 2 adults and 2 kids it was perfect fit. When my mother-in-law visited for a few days, it wasn't too cramped. I like the Netflix access (included). The internet was blazing fast.
