About Wendy Simpson

Puerto Aventuras is my home away from home - a wonderful place to recharge your batteries, in a quiet and friendly atmosphere. The rest of the year I live in Paris - a big beautiful hectic city - the combination of the two seems just about perfect to me. I am happy to receive inquiries at 33-1-4647-7997. If you do not feel like calling France send me your number and I will call you back.

Wendy Simpson purchased this condo in 2005

Why Wendy Simpson chose Puerto Aventuras

Puerto is easy to get to via Cancun airport. The residence is particularly desirable for small children with the zero entry pool and gentle sandy beach entry. For a bit of lively activity you are only 20 minutes from the bustling Playa del Carmen, and close to many interesting places to explore. Tulum and Coba are wonderful sites of Mayan ruins. There are also several very interesting theme parks in the area. Something for everyone.

What makes this condo unique

I took many vacations in Puerto before buying and each time looked at many apartments. For whatever reason I fell in love with this one the moment I saw it - It is directly on the best part of the beach, just a few steps from the Marina and has every comfort I could want.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time and were so pleased with the location of the property. The pools and grounds were immaculate and the snorkelling from the beach was the best we've experienced so far. Life was so easy as we could sit on the beach whilst our teenage sons were in the pool right behind us. After visiting a couple of other places during our stay we can safely say that we picked the perfect location to spend our holiday...we were so happy to return there after a day out. We did feel quite smug!

The staff of the resort were very friendly and everywhere was so clean. I'm a big fan of the 'towel art' the cleaners surprised us with on each of their visits! The villa itself suited us perfectly, a family of 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Eating our breakfast freshly collected from the local bakery on the balcony was the ideal start for the day. The kids were happy as wifi was available (unfortunately seems an essential these days!) and everyone found the villa spacious and comfortable and the views overlooking the pool and beach from the balcony and master bedroom were amazing.

We always ate out for our main meals and it was great to have so much choice locally around the marina and at the hotel next door.

We hired a car from the airport and driving was very easy and we felt very safe. Just watch out for those 'topes' (speed bumps)! Our favourite days away from the villa were spent at Xplor - a fantastic family day out - and we travelled to Chichen Itza to stay for 1 night in the Mayaland hotel there and would recommend it. It felt like you were staying in the middle of the jungle and it was great for an early start for the tour of Chichen Itza the next morning. Not to be missed, but an early start is needed to avoid that heat! The hotel organised our guide for us when we arrived. Xcaret was enjoyable but a little manic at the start in getting your bearings and none of the parks are cheap. The evening show here was spectacular however, making the cost worth it. Although some in our family group were a little unsure of swimming in a cenote at first, the couple of hours we spent there were amazing. We opted for Cenote Azul, completely outdoor one (no cave or underground swimming required) close to the villa (5 mins towards Tulum).

We would certainly recommend staying at this property within the Villa Del Mar complex in Puerto Aventuras. It was great for a quiet relaxing holiday, but with as much entertainment as you could want within a 15-20 minute drive.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Book now for your vacation!! We spent a week in Mexico after a long busy winter working in Breckenridge Co. This is just what we needed. A quiet and relaxing week on white sand beaches!

Steps away from our door was an amazing pool complex. Two pools with shallow areas for young kids to splash and enjoy! This was our go to in the evenings! We traveled with an 11 yr old, who we could get out!

A few more steps past the pools is the Palapa area with lounge chairs and chairs to watch the ocean and the world go by. Tranquel turquoise waters that are gentle and inviting. Waves that are no bigger then 2 ft made for many afternoons spent swimming, laughing and relaxing with our friends!

Having a washer and dryer allowed us to pack lightly. We did laundry twice and saved the checked bag fee with the airlines! Beds were comfy, water pressure amazing and the patio to die for! Every morning I sat here with my coffee, a general beeeze stirring the trees and watching the clouds.

Perfect for friends who want to get away but not into chaos of Cancun or Playa del Carmen. Easy drive to Cenotes and great food options a short 5 min walk (and that’s taking your time!)

Perfect for a family reunion to be able to catch up and enjoy some sun!!

Thanks for an amazing place to call Home for a week!!

Our Favorite

  • 5 of 5

Everything is as expected, being our 3rd annual stay at this penthouse. We plan on coming back every year for the foreseeable future. Great building, clean and tidy grounds, great staff, trustworthy cleaners (they left cash on the tables meant for them). Everything you need within walking distance. We love this place.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo does need some minor work here and there, such as plastering over cracks by windows, fixing A/C thermostats (downstairs/living room) and replacing old furniture, such as a deteriorated coffee table located in the living room. We walked into other condos, and the furniture and decor was much nicer than D302, yet rates were much higher. Overall, our stay was nice; Villas del Mar I has a beautiful beach and the complex is very well maintained. Puerto Aventuras is very quiet and family oriented. I will definitely will go back!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments on needed repairs - I shall have Blue Caribbean look into them right away. Sorry you don't like my old coffee table. I quite like it - it fits in with my idea that this is a beach apartment and should be furnished to be casual and comfortable. I am glad you had a nice stay.

Owner's Response: I am perplexed. First I received a message from you saying that you had forgotten a couple of things in the apartment. Then shortly thereafter I received a copy of a very angry letter you wrote to Blue Caribbean accusing the maids of stealing things from your packed suitcase. I know that the apartment was very thoroughly checked after your departure and nothing was found. I also know that the maids who cleaned when you were there have been with Blue Caribbean for several years and have always been irreproachable. Of course an incident like this is very disturbing. But I am just trying to think what other explanation could be possible. You were only in Puerto a few days. Did you make other stops on your trip? Did you check your bag at the airport. I think theft from checked baggage is a recurrent problem. I hope that this incident did not ruin your stay and that you were able to have some relaxing days at the beach.

Puerto Aventuras is between the lively city of Playa del Carmen and the beautiful Mayan ruins of Tulum. Even more extensive ruins of Coba and Chizen Iza are available for a daily outing. In addition there are many theme parks to see local wildlife and snorkel with colorful Caribbean fish. Underground water is very important in Quintana Roo. All rivers are underground and occasionally come to the surface creating chrystal clear cenotes (fresh water ponds) to explore - and for cave divers there is no more extensive network anywhere else in the world. Puerto Aventuras has something for every interest and every age.
