About the property

2000 Sq Foot Ocean View Condo 4 Bedrooms 2.5 Baths 2 To 10 Guests

This beautiful beachfront property is located at km 13.5 in the heart of the hotel zone. Open the door, walk down the hall and stairs and you are on the beach! This approx 2000 sq foot two level condo has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It has been freshly painted and has new beds for your comfort. The balcony overlooks the ocean, a perfect spot to enjoy the view and a relaxing drink after a day at the beach! This condo can be rented as a 2, 3 or 4 bedroom condo accommodating 2 to 10 guests.

The condo is fully air conditioned, with each bedroom having its own control. There are also ceiling fans in each room. The condo boasts a large living and dining area with a fully equipped kitchen. The living room has a 40” smart TV. There are chairs and table on the balcony for our guests to use. Absolutely no pets or smoking in the condo. The condo has a washer and dryer. Every other day our maid comes in to clean. Her services are included in the price, but tips are greatly appreciated. Our condo provides beach and bath towels, dish soap, and paper towels. Water is available for purchase steps away for about 33 pesos for a 18 litre jug. We ask our guests to leave water for the next renters so they do not have to run out to get water immediately upon arrival.

Villas Marlin is conveniently located only a 20 minute drive from the Cancun airport. It is a gated complex that has 24 hour security. It features beach front pools including an adult pool with 3 hot tubs, kids pool and main pool for all to enjoy. All pools have lounge chairs and palapas. The beach offers a volleyball court and lounge chairs. Lifeguards supervise the the pool and beach. There is a bar for snacks and drinks in front of the main pool. The snack bar will deliver to the condo or the beach. The property also offers a convenience store, tennis court and parking.

Tours or side trips can be taken to surrounding areas including Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Xel-Ha, Xcaret, Tulum, Akumal and Chichen Itza. Buses will take you anywhere in the city for about 1 dollar US. Buses come by every few minutes on Kukulcan Blvd in front of Kukulcan Plaza, right in front of Villas Marlin. This mall has a Soriana grocery store (full grocery, including liquor and pharmacy). Cabs are readily available. A five minute walk takes you to La Isla Shopping Village, Cancun’s beautiful Venetian style mall with an aquarium and a swim with the dolphins activity. There are many good restaurants in the area ranging in price from inexpensive to fine dining.

Jet-ski rental and parasailing are available just steps down the beach. Diving, snorkeling and deep sea fishing are also available in the area. Watch the sea turtles come in to lay eggs in June and July; turtle babies are born in August and September. Staff at Villas Marlin will let you help dig the eggs to place them in a protected area. When the eggs hatch you can help dig the baby turtles and release them into the ocean!

Upon booking, you will be sent information about the condo, as well as a guest list and liability form which must be completed and returned. Our personal recommendation for transportation to and from the airport is Canada Transfers. This company offers a private ride and accepts various currencies.

For pricing please see the price chart.

About Scott Wotton

My wife and I own this property. We live in Manitoba, Canada. Because winters in Canada can be very cold, enjoying the warm Cancun sun is a welcome change. My family enjoys the white sand and beautiful coloured water.

Scott Wotton purchased this condo in 2015

Why Scott Wotton chose Hotel Zone

We chose this property because we are just steps away from the beautiful beach! We also love the space this condo offers ... we rented at Villas Marlin before we purchased and this condo is one of the largest.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the easy going nature of the complex. Our building has three pools and we are just steps to the beach. Groceries, restaurants and shopping are within walking distance of the condo. We own two condos only steps apart, one accommodating 2 to 10 guests, the other accommodating 2 to 12 guests (22 guests in total). This set up is perfect for large groups vacationing together.

Just as described. Very nice, homey, clean, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. The location is so convenient. Walking distance of shops, restaurants, and easy bus ride to anywhere else. The pools are magnificent. The beach is nice. We would definitely stay here again.

This condo is in a great location. It is close to many restaurants and shops. It is right on the beach with 3 pools. The condo itself is OK...mainly because it can use some updating. The A/C works great and there is plenty of hot water. The condo owner is responsive if you run into any issues. If you want to be on the ocean and close to everything and not wanting a fully updated space this is the place for you.

Great location, but condo is not as advertised.

  • 2 of 5

Pros: Great location in Cancun's Hotel Zone, shopping/groceries across the street, lovely beach out back as well as 2 swimming pools. Also, the housekeeper Ledy was wonderful.

Cons: We've stayed at a handful of condos in Mexico over the years, and this was our least favorite. First, the condo owner Scott was very difficult to reach in-between my initial payment and the final payment. I sent at least 4 emails over 3 weeks with zero response. The condo itself was very run down, poor appliances, and the beds were very very uncomfortable. They advertise queen size beds in all rooms. These were more like full-size beds. There are issues with the hot water system as well. We had to text the owner the first morning there because we had no hot water (even after running it for 20 minutes). Showers every other day were hit or miss with hot or even warm water. You get a view of the sea from your upper-floor balcony (equipped with broken plastic patio furniture), but you need to look over the roof of the condo in front of you to see the water. The only shades we could keep open in the entire condo were the patio doors upstairs because every other window in the condo was facing the neighboring condos. The owners should spend a few dollars to add a water jug holder, instead of having to slowly pump your water out of a big jug. That made no sense. Also, please note: if you want an umbrella with 2 lounge chairs on the beach behind the condo, you'll have to spend $13-15 USD per day. This would have been good to know ahead of time.

I really wish I could attach photos here, then I could show you the actual condition of the condo. I would recommend spending a little more money and staying elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen, I was disappointed to receive your poor review of my property. My apologies for not quickly responding to your e-mails. Admittedly 3 weeks without a response is unacceptable. My daughter was in a serious accident and my wife and I were in the hospital with her for the majority of the 3 weeks you mentioned. I hope you can appreciate it was a difficult situation and emails at that time were not being answered as quickly as they should have been. I disagree that the condo is run down. It is definitely dated and the appliances are old. However, they do all work and the pictures we've included on our site clearly show the condo as is and it is priced accordingly. The beds, although you may have found them hard, were purchased new only two years ago and they are a queen size bed. All bedding and pillows were new only two years ago as well. The condo was freshly painted at that time too. I take pride in having very hot water in my condos as I know a good hot shower is much appreciated. After hearing from you that the hot water was not working, our condo caretaker Ledy looked into the problem. I did not hear back from either of you so I assumed that everything was working. I should have checked in to see if it was working properly. Our condo is designed for a view of the ocean, and the other windows do face other sections of the condo. The view of the ocean does include the roof of the condo in front of us, but the pictures I've posted clearly show this as I am in no way trying to hide what the view is actually like. I want my guests to be completely satisfied with my condos so only accurate pictures are posted. The public beach is right beside my condo and yes you can rent chairs and umbrellas there if you like. There are also free beach lounge chairs stacked up near the life guard tower that anyone can use. My apologies that the condo was not as you had expected. The guests I had the week before your stay gave me a 4 star rating so I figured everything was in working condition. Sincerely, Scott

Amazing view, spacious property, nice beach and pool!

  • 4 of 5

I would rate this a 5-star, but only giving 4 due to: #1) booking experience - I was expecting owner to be more prompt in responding to billing and pre-arrival questions (i.e. we were arriving late in the evening and had questions about parking, gaining access, etc.) He eventually responded and was apologetic, but if you're the type who expects very quick responses, just be aware. The #2 reason: the hallway noise at night - some people don't follow condo rules to be respectful of others and I thought that would have been enforced.

Besides the above, everything else was great - we felt safe, rooms were clean, spacious, air-conditioned. This is a two-level property. When you enter, there are 3 bedrooms on main floor, plus 2 full baths. The 2nd level is the main living area and kitchen, with 4th bedroom. There is also the balcony with the beautiful view of the beach and ocean. Washer/dryer worked very well and we used often. Fridge also worked but when packed full it took a while for things to chill up nicely - you also have to make sure the freezer door shuts tight; if you casually close it, it may not shut all the way. There are plenty of utensils and cooking pans, pots, etc. If anything is lacking or not right, just inform the maid, Ledy, and she will take care of it. She replaced our iron and provided a larger cooking pot within hours of our request. She is also a very nice lady who cleans up the entire place every other day. Tips are encouraged and we tipped after each of her cleanings, as she does a great job and deserved it! While there is A/C in the unit, ceiling fans also do an excellent job of keeping the place cool. WIFI worked well, so did the Smart TV if you plan on watching Netflix of HULU, etc. Pool area was clean, quiet and right by the beach. Beaches were also clean and lifeguards are on duty during the day. You can rent beach chairs for 50 pesos ($2-3 USD) and umbrella for 100 pesos. Mall across the street has a great gift shop and grocery store called "Soriana" which has all you need - meats, produce, snacks, frozen food, pharmacy, bakery, beer and liquor, beach items, etc. Walmart is further away (20-25 min). This location is ideal being right on the beach, plus 5-10 mins. from heart of Hotel Zone where many restaurants, bars/clubs, flea markets are; also 5 mins from Aqua World, 15 mins. from Dolphinarus and within 5-10 mins. of ferry to Isla Mujeres. We are a family of 4 (me, wife, teen and pre-teen.) Weather was also beautiful!

Amazing beach

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful place to enjoy the beach. Scott was great to get back to us with any information we requested and allowed us to leave our luggage passed our check out time so we could enjoy the beach. Leddy the house keeper was amazing and very helpful. The condo instructions contained very helpful information including some local restaurants. Location is great with a mall just across the street with a supermarket for supplies. We used the bus for travel and found security helpful as well.
