Everyone, I am sure, is a bit nervous renting a house or an apartment from a stranger and sometimes the information we are fed about Mexicans could put you off. Well like everywhere in the world, there are the good and the bad. In this instance however you will not be disappointed. The owner of this property is a gentleman and an honest person. Everything is as advertised. The place was almost perfect and the interior cannot be faulted. The two TV's were new and modern and large, the sound system was a surround sound Yamaha which was quite adequate. The view from the balcony was magical especially the sun coming up at 6.15am and the moon rising at about 7pm if there is one. The beach is suffering, like all the Caribbean beaches at the moment, with all that seaweed however not too bad. The pool was perfectly clean and the pool area is very well maintained. The caretaker, George, is a gentleman and is on hand to help and he speaks some English as does the owner. We are a couple who met their grown children for a week at this place and they all loved it. The kitchen had everything. By the way, we used the Collectivos (public 15 seater vans) that pass up and down the road to town all day and into the night. They are safe and cost only 8 pesos into town or ask for the buses to zona hotelia and they will drop you off to catch a bigger bus for only 10.5 pesos to the Hotel district and the big beaches with the turquoise ocean. There are restaurants 500m and an Oxxo convenience store about 1km from the apartment so I do not see the need for a rental car but your choice of course. I doubt you will find anything in Cancun with the facilities and sea views and spaciousness of this apartment. It would have been a five star review if nature was nicer to the white sandy beach. The only way you would get anything cheaper with this quality, is to lease a place for six months to a year, but that is not very practical for a holiday. By the way, on Google Maps, look for Condominio Flamingo Plus on the Punta Sam road North east of Cancun Center. Zoom in and it will show up. Or enter Mayan Access as that is in the same apartment block. There is 24hr security on the gate.

If you are looking for a secluded place to rest, relax and read books...this is the place. If you are hoping to be in the mix of tourism and nightlife, you will need to rent a car to get there as well as shopping including groceries. The rental offers quite a bit of space...comfortable for at least 6 people. The rental could use some updating and we never figured out the washer and dryer. Jorge, the manager was super nice and tried to be helpful. Many of the condos are owned by folks who live there and so while they are working during the day, you pretty much have the pool and beach area to yourselves. The beach was eroded after Hurricane Wilma so not allot of beach area but the water is beautiful!. I would return to this rental but it would not be for everyone.
