This trip started two years ago around our Thanksgiving table. Gramps was asked to find a house for 12 with a private pool near the ocean. Villa Arrecife fit all of the above criteria and because of its location, offered several more amenities with its white beaches and warm ocean both north and south of the Villa. The owner provided several suggestions for restaurants, which was helpful and appreciated. The area is not super populated...

Management response:

We are so happy that you had a fabulous family vacation together at the villa!! Hope we can host you and your lovely family again!!

Make sure that you arrange to meet the local property manager and know how to contact him. Make sure that the gate personnel are notified that your group is arriving and the duration of your stay. Make the owner aware if you plan to use the Casita so it is prepared for guests like the main Villa. We enjoyed the morning walks to the gulf and the views from the roof - if you are...

Management response:

We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay at the villa! The view from the rooftop is my favourite. Again we apologize for the fact that the Casita was not prepared for your visit. I make our Property Manager aware of the schedule and the Casita should have been as ready as the villa itself is. I have...

How to get there
Airport: Cancun Airport: 54.1 mi
Ferry: Playa del Carmen: 19.9 mi
Once you leave Cancun airport, take highway 307 South (follow the signs that say to Playa del Carmen). This highway runs straight along the coast and you will reach Grand Sirenis Resort in approximately 50 to 60 minutes. You actually drive past the entrance and take the Retorno that is in the left lane immediately after you see the arches at the entrance gate. This allows you to switch over to the other side of the highway. Drive up to the security gate and inform them that you are a resident and staying at Villa Arrecife #124 (I recommend that you print the welcome package out to take with you; it has a photo of the villa on the front that you can show the guard). Stick to the right side of the loop road until you see #124!
Activities nearby
