Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Puerto Morelos - Beachfront condo with pool

2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2 king sized beds or 1 king and 2 twins, sleeper couch

On the beach with a private deck, ground level next to pool and hot tub, terrace with hammock and outside dining, 3 sets of double doors, each bedroom with picture window and ocean view.

Wireless internet and sky satellite TV, microwave, blender, fridge freezer, washer dryer, coffee pot and gas oven and cook top, split Air conditioning in each room.

Modern Euro-Mexican design, marble floors and contemporary furniture make this a haven of peace and serenity. IPOD ready - you can decide if you want romance, family fun or seclusion.

After a week here you may never want to go home - bring tons of books.

If you send me an email I can send you a link to our condo website with video, directions and renter comments

Puerto Morelos: We are just a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk from the center square in Puerto Morelos. We have a dozen or more great restaurants, a daily fish market, weekly fruit and vegetable market ( Wednesdays 7-11) and several snorkeling and scuba shops. Fishing trips or daily excursions can easily be arranged.

Puerto Morelos is only 20 minutes drive from the airport - if you send me an email I will forward our own website link with directions and lots more information on our condo including some video and comments from our renters.

Puerto Morelos is a safe quaint Mexican town (village really) with no fast food and not too much trace of commercialization. There is a grocery store and some internet cafes, a Europcar car rental, ATV rentals and even bicycle rentals

Nearby Activities: If you want a weeks peace and tranquility stay in Puerto Morelos - but Cancun and Playa Del Carmen are less than 30 minutes away. Playa has tons of shopping and nightlife, and you can catch the ferry to Cozumel almost hourly and spend the day wandering around this beautiful Island. Our personal shopping favorite is Cinquo De Soles - with traditional Mexican products and a great restaurant with a live Mexican band and great food.

There are lots of other places to visit nearby, Xel-Ha environmental beach resort, Dolphin Discovery and tons of other great activities. Tulum or Chichen Itza ruins are within driving range if you want to visit sites of great historical value, its not hard to spend a week here and feel like you need more.

Personalized Services: Our Condo is maintained by Carlos and Mercedes, we kinda feel like they are our extended family in Mexico. We can arrange airport pickup and drop off, your fridge can be stocked on arrival with all your needs, or we can arrange personalized guiding for a day or more if you would like that kind of service.

There are chef services available for dinner at your condo. We recently visited the El Cid Hotel just up the beach for spa treatments, mine was the eagle warrior deep tissue massage right on the beach.

Palma Real is relatively unoccupied - often there may only be one or two units with visitors at any one time, so its very peaceful and you can really get used to the sound of the waves and the sea breeze, even when its a warm day it feels great because of the breeze and the water.

About Neville Gardner

Owner's Neville and Linda Gardner - Linda from Pennsylvania and Neville originally from Northern Ireland.

Neville Gardner purchased this condo in 2007

Why Neville Gardner chose Puerto Morelos

We loved the location because its on the beach and the sound of the waves and the breeze create a sense of peace and harmony you can only dream of when you are not here. Many places we looked at elsewhere you 'might' see the ocean from a block away, we are actually on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Palma Real is a small condo collection, with just 15 units. It's unusual for it to be fully occupied and its location behind the federal port results in an almost private beach. The beach is sandy and well maintained and there is not a big current, so it's safe for almost anyone to swim in.

Great condo and town, We were well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice. Clean and definitely large enough for the four of us. We had everything we needed in the condo, and Carlos (the main contact at the condo) got us food to start us off. We spent a lot of time on the beach, which is beautiful and just a few steps away. Puerto Morelos is an awesome little town. Much smaller than Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. The experience is very different from the all-inclusive style vacation, but we definitely preferred it.

We also had a medical emergency while we were down there, and my wife had to have nearly immediate surgery in Cancun. Carlos was there for us every step of the way, from finding us a qualified doctor who spoke English to driving us to appointments and the hospital, to translating and scheduling our appointments for us. He even went out of his way to make sure we were fairly billed. The doctors and health care down there was actually very nice, but our vacation would have been very different without Carlos guiding us through the ordeal, to say the least.

All in all, we loved the place, the town, and how well we were taken care of. I would definitely return.

best condo in the complex!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo in early '15 and it was fantastic. You have a wonderful porch with loungers that faces the ocean and a side deck with table and chairs that faces the pool. The condo is very well equipped for cooking and has plenty of everything for entertaining. We would choose this condo again on a return trip to Mexico. There is a lovely little beach right beside the porch that has chairs and palapas and palm trees. To get to the town and main beach of Puerto Morelos you have to walk through a shipping port that has plenty of trucks and men working but it just added to the adventure and it was well lit and felt completely safe. We mainly used the car to get to the town and the PM beach. I felt that this was the absolute best condo in the complex especially since the porch had a lattice covering that kept the intense sun at bay. Loved it!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Puerto Morales with my adult children, my 1 year old grandchild and other family members. Absolutely LOVED this condo. Beautiful property with wonderful view of the ocean from your bed. Was rainy while we were there but still enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the boys went on a fishing excursion with the local fishing tours. We rented a car while we were there an had fun driving into Playa and Cancun for a day. Carlos took care of our every need - including a doctor for the one year old who developed an ear infection. Doc came to the condo and had the meds we needed. Will definitely go again - my son is already saving for a return visit :) Thanks Neville and Linda for a great week

Wonderful condo in a wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 11 nights in March and loved it! This condo is the best location in the complex, steps from the pool and the beach. We travelled with our 9 year old son, he could be swimming in the pool while we were still drinking coffee! We didn't have to pack a bag to go to the beach or the pool for the day. Just walk inside your unit to grab a cold drink or a snack. We absolutely loved Puerto Morelos! It is a small town but had everything that we needed. We rented a car, which I recommend, so made a trip to Wal mart to do a big shop, but was able to get anything else we needed at Casa Martin in town or the fresh produce market we found around the corner from the OXO. We even found wine we liked at Casa Martin, they had a fairly good selection. It was great having a car to get to town at night, the walk by the port was a bit sketchy in the dark! We did do the walk during the day at it's an easy 5 minute walk. There were MANY great restaurants to choose from, we had a great meal everywhere we went. Spaghettinos had great authentic Italian food, there was an Argentinian restaurant that was great too (can't remember the name). Los Gauchos was good, and Tanino's Wine bar (great wine and you can order off the menu from Los Gauchos too!) We ate out most nights because I was on holidays from cooking. We did eat breakfast and lunch in the unit. You will need to buy everything you need to cook, there are no condiments in the condo. The beach in front of the complex was always clean (it was full of sea grass one day and we asked Gustavo to rake it and it was done right away), but if you walk the beach you will see garbage....it is Mexico! The pool was always clean, we saw Gustavo check the chlorine level every day. The unit was also very clean, we had one mid-stay clean which more expensive than we have ever paid (we have rented many condos in Mexico), but still worth it! She did a complete clean and changed our sheets as requested. Carlos was great for anything you need, he arranged our clean and picked up half and half for coffee, which apparently you can only find in one store in Cancun! I highly recommend a trip to Isla Mujeres. We took the big yellow ferry, and rented a golf cart, there are many ports so I recommend to check online to pick one and make sure you get on the right ferry coming back! Go zip ling, it's fun, safe and inexpensive. Eat at The Joint, great blended mojitos and food!

Owner's Response: We have tried leaving condiments like salt and pepper but they can get moist and we have had some gentle complaints so decided not to do that any longer.

Amazing View--Great Jacuzzi

  • 4 of 5

Our condo in Puerto Morelos was beautiful. The view was amazing. The beach was clean and it was very peaceful. I contacted the owner about some minor issues and he was very receptive to our suggestions. Our main concern was that the road leading to the condo was full of potholes. The owner said that the owner.s association are working to having access to a better road. I look forward to knowing that the next time we go the road will be in better condition. Thankfully, it is not a very long road.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately we have had a lot of rain in the past few weeks, and since we are located between the mangrove and ocean our roads can get flooded. Dealing with Mexican authorities isn't very fast so by the time they decide to help the problem the sun dries up the flood.

Beautiful beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well equipped condo right on the beach. Every room including master bathroom has an ocean view. Poolside chairs and lounges give you a choice of sitting in a shade or sunbathing. Palapas on a beach in a front of the condo are the great place to stay in a shade. The condo is very quiet and rather secluded. We use the taxis to get to Puerto Morelos. They are cheap($2.00-$3.00) At the time we were there walking was rather impossible since it was raining for 5 days in a row(unusual for Mexico). We have done lots of walking on the beach. You can easily walk for kilometers without seeing too many people. Unfortunately the Mexican beaches are not always very clean(except the ones in a front of the condos or hotels).

I would like to thank you Neville for accommodating my special needs(I am a cancer patient). We would love to come back.

Puerto Morelos
Car: recommended

Our condo is located on the ground floor next to the beach and pool. We are about a half mile or 1 Km south of center square in Puerto Morelos - just north of the El Cid resort. We are located behind the Federal Port facility - just far enough to not be hear it or really be affected by it - except for the privacy it gives.

Puerto Morelos is a very Mexican fishing village about 20 minutes drive south of the Airport in Cancun and about 30 minutes drive north of Playa Del Carmen. There is a coral reef running along the shore with a national park just off the coast by our condo.
