Just go shopping to walmart for groceries and other necessities and your're done. Regular size fridge and stove. Futon in living room next to kitchen with a nice view of the Amazing Beautiful ocean.

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

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

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
