Has anyone stayed at Villa Cristal?
What can you say about it ?
Heres a link to it..
I've only seen it from the outside but it certainly looks stunning. Location is outside of centro so you'll need some form of transportation to beaches and restaurants, etc. downtown.
Haven't stayed in that house but we did stay in the one next door this past January. You definitely need a golf cart. And while the views are amazing, we found we prefer the opposite side of the island (facing Cancun) as you're so close to the road here and there's lots of cart traffic during the day. But that's a minor detail; the house looks awesome.
Plan to get a cart for the week :-)
Lots of great places to eat within walking distance...El Rincon Cubano, Tacos Medina and El Cachirul. A short cart ride would take you to Deisy & Rauls, Madero, Manolitos, Caribbean Brisas, Mangos and Seso Tacos.
While it is on the road, the views are spectacular and nothing compared to the traffic downtown. Enjoy your vacation.
We also prefer the Caribbean side when staying at rentals. We did get eaten by skeeters on that side last May though when we stayed at Grandparents apartment near the southern tip. First time it was that bad for skeetos.
I would be going in Oct.
How is it for skeeters then?
