We stay here six months during winters. Love these spacious villas with beautifully kept gated grounds and an immaculate pool. Hummingbirds and wild parrots are abundant. Just a stone’s throw from the sea with stunning ocean sunsets from the balcony. Cecelia is very accommodating providing whatever you might need. As divers, it is convenient to be within walking distance to Papa Hogs a fabulous dive shop and restaurant with their six pax fast boats.
We had a two-bedroom flat that comfortably fit four people. We also had a huge kitchen area that had pots and pans. The beach is across the street. There is also a pool on the grounds. We had a great stay.
Everything maintained, and I felt safe. There is gated parking. Down the street, there are a few scuba and snorkel shops. There is a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I would come back to this place next time it was far better than an all-inclusive hotel. I highly recommend renting a car from the airport and use it for driving the beach to beach.
We stayed at Villas Mayaluum last week and had a wonderful time. We had a three-bedroom (#2). There was more room than we knew what to do with. The unit itself is right by the road, however, and there is significant road-noise, yet only a concern for a light sleeper. There is one bedroom that didn’t face the better street. I would recommend a unit farther back if possible.
Most of the residents appeared to be long term renters. The property is gated, and you have a code and key to come and go. There is sufficient parking for the units. The pool and patio area is wonderful! The grounds are lovely. There is an area that you can cook etc. by the pool. It looks beautiful, but the grill needs to change. The condo itself could use a few more items in the kitchen, but we got by just fine. The management is not all that accessible, but again, there are a majority of long term renters here. I should have scheduled a day to exchange towels right away.
If you stay here, come prepared with a list of questions, and everything will go very smooth. A nice guy from there suggested the cozumel water jet board for people who love water sports. There was a washer/dryer combo that was a bit complicated as the buttons are of course in Spanish, come prepared with a translator app if you are not fluent. We got it to work, however, and that makes for much lighter packing. The beds are reasonably comfortable. I couldn’t ask for too much more in a condo rental. The location is nice, beyond some traffic noise, it is a nice quiet setting. I would highly recommend staying at Villas Mayaluum.
I booked this place online and dealt with Cecilia, who owns the establishment. She was terrific to deal with. She was most helpful when my husband and his sister arrived. The place was large and kept very clean. Cecilia kept in touch with me via email, because neither my husband or sister-in-law is computer savvy. I will recommend this place to my friends and hope to make a trip down one day.
