For the first part of our trip we were supposed to stay in Playa Del Carmen, when we got to the resort on the night of the 10th the hotel had lost our reservation. You can only imagine the panic that was setting in because we were travelling with small children. I had spoke with Alvin a few times on... More

I've been to Cancun before but this was the first time I did a private rental in Cancun (usually stay in hotel). I enjoyed my stay at Villas Marlin! Best thing to remember THIS IS NOT A HOTEL. It's a condo. It's not perfect.Decor is decent. If you need a safe, nice location to sleep, relax and you don't need... More

This was our first trip to Mexico. We had arranged to meet the manager of unit 705 at Villa Marlin for our key code and introductory tour of the unit. He failed to show. We were escorted to room 705 by a security person and found another couple in the unit. They had a 4-month contract for the same unit.... More

Tough to evaluate as this is a condo with many different owners. We dealt with Alvin and Fernando who are top notch. Their driver meets you at the airport and they are waiting a the complex to give you a personal walkthrough. We were in 715 which had received some thoughtful comments all of which were corrected when we arrived... More

However, I wish I could say the same about Villas Marlin Condo 707. Don’t get me wrong, the location itself... More

Overall Villas Marlin was an excellent location and I'm glad to have found it. It comfortably fit 6 adults. Was in an excellent location away from the crazy, young spring breakers. Peaceful beach, large pool, and very warm staff. I would recommend this condo for people in their mid-to-late 30's+ looking for a good time but not with the chaos... More

Situated in a complex in the Hotel Aone with all the amenities to enjoy the beach, pools, great weather of Cancun. The condo itself, on the 4th floor of this complex is functional and housekeeping does a good job of keeping the premise comfortable. It doesn't appear to have undergone any renovations, upgrades since it was built We had only... More

When you are renting here you are renting a condominium. There are a basically 185 a separate owners. While there are a few people owning multiple units that have all... More
