"Villa Bonita Cancun has the perfect ambiance for a Caribbean family vacation!"

Left on 07/24/2015 for a stay in July 2015
The Villa Bonita Cancun was a very spacious, elegant and well thought out villa for large groups of 8 traveling on vacation to enjoy the Caribbean and the sites of Cancun and surrounding areas in Mexico. The decor was exquisite, furniture comfortable, and the staff was courteous (only the property manager spoke English). The villa is four levels, including the rooftop pool and lounging area with large gathering areas to eat, gather or just relax. The grounds indoors and out were very well kept and immaculately cleaned by two full time staff members. Free wifi was great but slow and unpredictable. We especially enjoyed the thoughtfulness of the small details of televisions throughout the villa, bluetooth music availability throughout (even on the roof), décor that was very thoughtfully planned as to give the perfect ambiance for vacation and balconies with stunning views throughout. A few things to make your trip more enjoyable: 1. Bring face towels with you (white is strongly suggested). Large white bath towels are provided and also large beautiful colorful beach towels. There were no face towels, bring some with you. We bought the only ones we could find and they were purple. Lots of dye was used because the purple bled on other items when washed, so bring white face towels with you. 2. Ensure to brush up on your Spanish or have a smart phone available with translation apps to communicate with staff. The property manager is not on the site except when checking in and out, but could be reach by telephone (a local telephone was available in the villa but was turned off our last day). The staff does not speak English at all. 3. A rental car is suggested...

"Amazing beach, amazing bargain and great service!"

This Was our second trip to Solymar Condos and this time we stayed a total of three nights, two at the beginning of our month long vacation and one at the tail end. I must say Michelle has been fabulous to work with both trips. My husband stayed in Mexico for a few weeks so when we returned to Solymar at the end of the trip my son and I we both feeling really down, Michelle made sure we were in a quiet room and she took the time to chat with my son to get him excited about turtle watching and not missing my husband. The rooms are always incredibly clean and the air conditioners work well which is a BIG help when it is so humid. The last night our room was newly renovated, and it was very nice. I like having the kitchen in the room along with everything you might need should you decide to cook, it makes it handy to run back to the room for a quick snack or lunch, especially since there really isn't much within walking distance. Since the hotel is further down the strip it makes it a little easier to relax while out on the beach because there isn't a large crowd.. trying to keep an eye on your child on a busy beach, is just not very relaxing in my opinion. I am sure many mothers can relate to this especially when traveling alone with children. We will definitely be back to visit again in the near future!!! Thanks Michelle and Peter for sharing paradise with us!!!

"Love to stay there again"

Our host, Michelle, was super sweet. The area was safe, this is in the Hotel Zone, and well lit. The condo is in a hotel. Part of the building is set up as a full functioning hotel and the rest seems to be residential apartments. It added to a clam and quiet stay. Michelle's add was accurate. She mentions that the WiFi is not that great and this is accurate. The condo had everything we needed to cook. We went to the market for supplies and saved a lot of money. Peter, Michelle's husband, provided us with a map of our area, places to shop, eat and party. They provided bath towels and beach towels. We had fresh clean water, which we got from the Hotel shop for 48 pesos. It lasted us all 9 days. The pool area is there, but we only stayed on the beach. The Hotel staff will not be helpful and we always went to Michelle and Peter for any questions we had. They are your front desk. The air conditioning in this unit was great. Our view was amazing. I could not believe our view. We picked up a rental car to drive around and parking at the hotel was a breeze. We were told the restaurant of the Hotel and the pool bar were horrible so we stayed away. But the hotel shop was great. In the shop they had chips, cookies, souvenirs and cold drinks. The bus (R-1 and R-2) was easy to find and easy to figure out. The room was clean. The balcony was large and a nice way to enjoy the view in the evening and in the morning when the sun is rising. We did not turn on the TV because we had so much to do. I...

"GREAT VALUE/ CLEAN CONDO RIGHT ON THE BEACH"

Left on 06/13/2015 for a stay in July 2014
Wow , is al I can say!! A condo/hotel with the cleanest rooms in Cancun area. Ocean view condos right on the beach, with every amenity in the kitchen. Coffee maker, toaster oven, ice cold refrigerator, clean sheets and bedding and a sparklingly clean bathroom!! Michelle and Peter are the hosts of this condo. I had never stayed in a condo/hotel before and I was so pleased with my stay./ Everything about this condo and host is 100 percent. You can NOT beat the pricing for a 400 sq foot studio with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Masages on the beach, 2 pools, palapa huts on the beach, and the BEST beach and calm water in the area!! Dont wait to book your stay. These hosts really know their business and book quickly.
