Unit 511 worked well for our large group. The location is good - on the beach, right next to a mall, and in walking distance of many services, yet peaceful and secure. It is not a hotel - no front desk and lobby - but Fernando is responsive to email contact and was able to help us with several logistical... More

Balcony relaxation was nice. Bus to everywhere was convenient. Restaurants...spendy and not...are close by. The... More

Pro: Condo was as advertised, pools were great, beach was awesome. Airport transportation set-up by Alvin to and from was exactly as he had set-up making it zero stress. WIFI and Local phone was very helpful in making reservations as needed. We were surprised by the cost of eating out on the hotel zone, so having a kitchen to prep... More

We rented unit 707 from 3/28/14 through 4/5/14. When we arrived at the property, there was nobody from ownership to meet us, contrary to what was indicated in all of our correspondence. We were almost unable to get through the guard gate, as we were informed that another party was already occupying unit 707. After many hours of standing around... More

Very convenient location on the beach and close to the Kulkucan Mall. Good pools (3) and beachfront. Only down-side was distance to grocery stores. We had to go to Walmart or Chedraui by bus. A taxi was a must on the return journey. Unfortunately there are no sizeable grocery outlets at this end of the Hotel Zone and the Oxxo... More

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
