About the property

1 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 in Puerto Morelos at Palma Real Condominiums

We are excited to share our little piece of Puerto Morelos paradise with ocean views from every room and an amazing roof top deck with Jacuzzi.

Open the front door to this well appointed 1 bedroom/ 2.5 bath condo and your eyes are immediately drawn to the view. The entire wall ahead of you is glass, with the Caribbean Sea just beyond! The condo is designed around relaxed coastal living with an open plan kitchen/dining/living area. The kitchen is contemporary with a lot of counter space and all appliances/utensils you would need. Our condo also has a laundry room with a stackable washer/dryer for your use during your stay.

The living area is comfortable with a sectional sofa and a small built in Murphy Bed.

The Master Bedroom is spacious with a queen size bed, large closet and drawer space and a great en suite bathroom. There is also a sliding glass door to take you to the nice size terrace where you can spend time relaxing in the Hammock or taking in the ocean view with your morning coffee.

Just off the living room is another set of sliding glass doors to take you to the terrace, but the real outdoor living space is just up the spiral staircase to the large roof top deck!

The Roof Top Deck is fantastic! No other words for it. Amazing views, private, spacious, set up with sun loungers, an outdoor dining area, cooking prep area and charcoal BBQ grill. There is a pergola for shade and can you imagine sitting under the star filled Caribbean sky at night in the private Jacuzzi? There's also a half bath and outdoor shower for convenience. You never have to leave!

The Condo also includes an assigned off street parking spot should you rent a car and there is 24 hour onsite security.

Palma Real Condominium complex is a small, boutique complex of just 15 units just south of the main village of Puerto Morelos. Located directly ocean front, it is a gated community restricted by key access and has an elevator. The location close to the port, makes for a very private beach and additional security. We are also the only complex south of the port that allows for easy walking/biking access to town without needing to walk on the busy main road.

Puerto Morelos is a charming seaside fishing village with amazing restaurants, shops and beautiful beaches. Just 20 minutes south of the Cancun airport, there is plenty to do for all from relaxing to beach time, boating, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, jungle tours, cenote discovery, zip lining and historical ruin tours.

The gorgeous and well maintained grounds include a hot tub, infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea, a BBQ area in the courtyard with loungers, shaded BBQ area with tables for playing games. And of course, the beach area out front with loungers and palapas for shade.

We have a property manager who can help should you have any issues or need anything during your stay such as scheduling tours, private chef, beach chairs, DVD's, dinner recommendations etc.

The main town square is great for shopping, groceries, restaurants and is roughly a 10-minute stroll to the Palma Real Condominiums.

The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef (also referred to as the Mayan Barrier Reef) is the second-largest coral reef in the world and runs parallel to the Yucatan Peninsula. The Great Barrier Reef, in Australia, is the only reef that is larger! In Puerto Morelos, the reef is closer to the shore than in any other area of the Riviera Maya.

For an additional fee, our property manager will go grocery shopping for you, schedule a private chef to come in and cook dinner, schedule more frequent housekeeping and laundry, schedule a cenote tour, fishing, golfing or a massage on the beach and help coordinate transportation to/from the Cancun airport.

About Shane and Angie Arnspiger

From Colorado we fell in love with Puerto Morelos about 14 years ago when we started our annual family vacations there. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to purchase a little piece of paradise last October (2016).

Shane and Angie Arnspiger purchased this condo in 2016

Why Shane and Angie Arnspiger chose Puerto Morelos

Palma Real is a 10 year old, three story, L-shaped, well maintained boutique building located on the beach behind the port. 15 units make for a very private beach. Puerto Morelos is a port town on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and is a very quiet fishing village with the friendliest people, great food and centrally located to so many activities.

What makes this condo unique

Puerto Morelos is a small fishing village with a laid back atmosphere for a complete relaxation vacation but close enough to Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum or Cozumel and surrounding region which offers incredible archaeological sites, eco parks in the jungle, cenotes, diving, snorkeling, championship golf and world class shopping. Puerto Morelos is also home to the Puerto Morelos Reef National Park. Inland you can find freshwater sinkholes of Las Mojarras Cenote and Verde Lucero Cenote.

Great place to relax

Condo was as advertised and had everything you would need. Amazing views directly on the beach and a 5 minute bike ride to the town square. The owners are helpful with suggestions. Tank you, great vacation.

We found this place so idyllic and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where to start. We had such a wonderful experience staying at this condo and exploring the delightful beach town of Puerto Morelos.

First I want to emphasize that this place is RIGHT on the beach. When I see a place claiming they're by the beach, I assume it's close but probably at least a block away. So I was delighted to find that Palma Real is right there by the ocean which its own slice of semi-private beach. Any time you please you can walk out of Angie & Shane's condo down a few stairs (or take the elevator), pass by a gorgeous swimming pool and onto the beach or into the ocean. Don't worry too much about what shoes to pack because you'll hardly need them.

It's not just the proximity to the beach that amazed us about how Palma Real is situated. Another thing is that they seem to have constructed the building optimizing for a constant flow of relaxing sea breeze. Pretty much any time day or night, whether hanging out in the condo with the windows open, relaxing on the private roof deck, walking through the building or relaxing by the pool, we could count on a pleasant breeze from the ocean to enjoy. Of course you can close the windows to the condo and they have A/C if you need it, but we couldn't get enough of the open air here.

This would be plenty to make it an amazing location, but then the condo is also only a 10-15 minute walk or 5-minute bike ride from Puerto Morelos's town square. Taxis are super affordable too if you prefer to drive and didn't rent a car.

The condo itself was a very beautiful and luxurious construction. In between our activities like snorkeling at the reef, going to live music and restaurants in town, taking an excellent cooking class, we found it to be a very relaxing and nourishing place to stay and hang out. Don't expect to get a super hot shower, but we didn't need it because the weather was plenty warm there, and there's a very nice hot tub by the pool if you get chilly (I went in a couple times).

The place was very clean and well set up, and Angie & Shane were very responsive and helpful with all our questions. I highly recommend it and would love to go back and stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property! We were at the unit after your visit and noticed the hot water as well. Somehow the hot water heater got turned way down. We have now marked it on the heater itself and made note of how to check it in our binder for future guests. We appreciate the kind words and hope you make it back for a future vacation!

Our week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our first vacation in Puerto Morelos exceeded all expectations – and our expectations had been very high due to the detailed descriptions from the owners and the glowing reviews on this site. The descriptions of Palma Real and the condo are, if anything, modest. I cannot imagine a better location in the area, a better designed living space , a more helpful staff, or more useful amenities. As per the descriptions, the views are spectacular from every window and balcony. Views from the private rooftop deck are even better. Even on a still day, there was always a refreshing cross breeze and the palm trees were always fluttering and bending in the wind to add to the sense of a tropical paradise.

Shane and Angie were the perfect hosts, providing valuable guidance and clear and detailed instructions. And they were very available, cheerful and responsive when we had questions.

I will not recount all of the fabulous details others have mentioned about Puerto Morelos, the condo, the beach, the reef, or the many the available activities, but I encourage you to read the owner’s descriptions and the other 5-star reviews with confidence. The descriptions are accurate and you will definitely not be disappointed.

One personal experience: My first activity every morning was to take my coffee out the beach and look for the pelicans to begin fishing. They have their own dock fifty yards from shore. I never tired of watching them fly in formation and dive bomb the water or glide effortlessly just inches above the waves just to show off.

I highly recommend a Puerto Morelos vacation and especially if this rental is available.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our Puerto Morelos property! We are honored you chose our unit for your first vacation in Puerto Morelos and hope that you are able to make it back to our sleeping little fishing village for your next vacation. We love watching the those pelican's fish right off the shore too! We hope you consider us the next time you are in the area.

Nice Condo outside the Town Square

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just had a great Easter weekend away in Puerto Morelos. We visited there 10 years ago and it has grown and still very enjoyable. The condo was wonderful. It has beautiful views from the balcony and the roof top terrace. It is nicely kept and well stocked with everything you would need. AC is available but not really needed as you can get a wonderful cross breezes. PM was about a 15 minute walk to the square, although the walk was easy we chose to rent bikes as we where back and forth several times a day. Unfortunately, where not able to get into the ocean outside the condo because the seaweed was really really bad. Not sure if that is a constant for that part of the beach, but it was disappointing . We did take advantage of the pool and rode our bikes into town and hung out on the beaches there. The restaurants in PM are all fabulous as are the people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of our property. We are glad that you enjoyed your time and we are sorry to hear about the beach. Normally, the beach in front of our complex is white sand with amazing walk out snorkeling. Unfortunately, Puerto Morelos (the whole mayan riviera coast) has seen an influx of Sargassum (seagrass). This is not the norm for this time of year or for the area, but we did experience it in July a couple years ago. We spoke with our property manager today who said that the beach seems to be returning back to normal. There is a great article about the what, where and why of Sargassum on the Akumal dive shop site which you might find of interest. Again, thank you for the feedback and we hope you consider us again should you make it back to the area.

Great Oceanside condo in PoMo with a terrific view

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd year we have stayed at this unit. We just finished a 3 week vacation in this condo at Palma Real and the time went way too fast. Everything about this condo is top notch. Shane and Angie have done a wonderful job of giving this condo a personal touch. I cannot think of one thing it does not have. It felt like a home away from home for us. The large, rooftop balcony is amazing with reclining chairs, bar, shower, bathroom, new pergola and hot tub, not to mention the wonderful view! It is very clean and well maintained. It was never too busy around the pool and hot tub adjacent to the pool. There are only 15 units at Palma Real and it seemed like about half were occupied during our visit. The palapas on the beach are very close to the ocean with beach chairs, which was very nice place to relax, read a book or walk into the ocean. The weeds that blew in were bad this year, but that is true of the whole beach up and down the area. This year is the exception, not the rule. I almost hate to give this review because I am concerned we won't get the unit next time but Shane and Angie are wonderful people to rent from and I cannot imagine a better unit to rent in PoMo.

So perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a special gem! Where do I start.... this condo has everything you could possibly need. The location is so special! Being on the other side of the port we could literally walk on the beach for miles and not see another person. The roof was amazing! The views, the hot tub, the lounge chairs, and the outdoor shower was one of our favorite parts! Snorkeling right outside the condo was fun too! We did end up doing a tour with Charlie Brown, which we recommend! (He is quite the character!) The reef out there is huge and stunning! We rented bikes and rode them ALL over the place! One day we rode 30 them miles to a cenote (Lucero Verde, I think) and back! If you attempt this make sure and bring enough water! We also rode them to the lighthouse south of the condo, it was such a fun and beautiful ride! We spent some time sitting in the warm clearwaters and watching all the little sea creatures swimming and scampering around the rocks. We ate at a different restaurant every day, and I don’t think you can go wrong anywhere! We were on the hunt for the best ceviche in PoMo, and it was so good everywhere we went! Angie and Shane have a very special and magical place, it is just what we needed, away from the crowds yet so close to the little city. We bought some art from a local artist that moved here from Ireland, beautiful art of Puerto Morelos to remind us of our wonderful stay. You can’t go wrong by choosing this location and condo! We are so sad to leave! Our days were perfect and each moment was more perfect than the last! We never turned on the air conditioner once. Opening the windows and letting in the ocean breezes was just perfect. Angie and Shane provide so much information which is so useful! Their favorite restaurants, who to call for a taxi and so much more. (Their hand drawn map of the city was the best!) I had some questions during our stay and they got back to me so quickly! You can’t go wrong staying here. We are so happy we came across it. It is truly a magical place. :)
