We like to call this fun third floor condominium Casa Familia simply because it has something to offer every member of the family. The condo is spacious, has 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, 2 terraces and it is located in one of the newest beachfront developments in Puerto Aventuras and most sought after, appropriately named Villas del Mar (Villas by the Sea).
Villas del Mar is the most family oriented complex in Puerto Aventuras. Villas del Mar boasts an unbelievably huge swimming pool, the largest in Puerto Aventuras. The pool is uniquely shaped, multiple-sided, and has a wide range of depths for all ages to enjoy. The swimming pool is well situated amidst an expansive and beautifully manicured green area landscaped with palm trees and tropical gardens. The beach is within a minute's walk through the pool park from your condo's door.
Casa Familia has ample common area for family and friends to gather. The main floor offers a living room that is comfortably furnished with a wrap-around couch, cocktail tables, TV, DVD, IPOD Dock and large windows looking out over the pool and toward the beach. The dining room provides dining table with room for six, plus a large counter area with 4 bar stools looking into Casa Familia's well-furnished kitchen, where you'll find everything you need to prepare all your meals. Furthermore, this condo is equipped with an extra half bathroom /utility room on its main floor complete with washer and dryer for added convenience. We offer all linens and towels plus twice weekly complimentary maid service and drinking water. Another bonus by staying in Villa del mar is onsite 24 hour security!
Each Bedroom has a King Size bed with 2 twin trundles under them. Master bedroom has also a soaker tub plus 2 other full bathrooms and one half bath in laundry room.
You come to Mexico to be outdoors, and Casa Familia offers two great terraces where you can enjoy the tropical weather within private confines. The main floor terrace is situated off the living room through large sliding glass doors. Its southern exposure ensures sunbathing in privacy of your own terrace at any time of the day. The condo offers a Jacuzzi tub, a thatched roof covered seating area, two lounge chairs, and stainless-steel gas grill for outdoor cooking and dining. From this terrace you can look down upon children playing in the shallow waters of the wading area of the huge pool, enjoy the beautiful sun setting over the jungle, or just relax with a margarita in the shade of the thatched roof palapa as you enjoy the breeze from the ocean as it gently moves the palms that surround this magnificent common area.
The second floor terrace provides yet another quiet and shaded outdoor space that you can retreat to within the privacy of this wonderful vacation condominium. This terrace offers a view of the jungle that extends as far as the eye can see. It is furnished with a couch and 2 very comfortable chairs with ottomans for afternoon quiet reading time. It's a great place to string up a hammock and take an afternoon siesta while listening to the soothing sounds of songbirds in the jungle treetops. From here you can also catch the most amazing of Caribbean sunsets....Read more

We have stayed here a number of years and don't look anywhere else. The location is perfect, just steps from the pool, the beach, and the Gulf of Mexico. The center of town is about 100 feet away, but it's so quiet you'd never know it's right there. Playa and Tulum are 15-20 minutes away, and the Chedraui across the highway (about 3/4 of a mile) means grocery shopping is easy.
The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, the kids love the hot tub on the deck and the bedding... I know it sounds ridiculous to talk about bedding but the mattress is the EXACT right combination of soft and firm. It's like sleeping in a cloud.
I wish I could think of negatives... wait, there is one. The owners added an XBox 360 in one of the bedrooms this year. Nice, but we unplugged it so our children would go outside :-). Had we known in advance, we would have asked for it to have been hidden.
Gina, as always, made sure everything was right. The best thing I can say is that we're already booked for next year.

This was the second time we stayed in Casa Familia with three adults and three children. The space is excellently appointed with WiFi and TVs (for the kids), a great deck with a hot tub, and a grill. Beds are so comfortable that it's like melting when you go to sleep.
Villa del Mar has the best pool and beach setup in all of Puerto, a 50-foot walk to the convenience store and now with a Chedraui right outside the gate. We've been coming every year for a decade, and this is our favorite spot in Puerto.
Make sure to book with Gina... she's absolutely the best and can guide you to things to do, both regular and off the beaten track.

We had the pleasure of staying here at the end of January. The condo itself was excellent - a well stocked kitchen in terms of plates, pots, pans, etc (important for three kids), two different decks, and a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico from the deck. We've stayed in Puerto aventuras several times before, so the amenities were what we expected, though it's wonderful that now there's a Chedraui right on the main highway instead of having to go to Playa del Carmen.
If you're looking for a nice place to go with a family, Puerto is perfect, and Villa del Mar is the best in Puerto... the pool alone is perfect for kids, and the beach is right there. Best of both worlds.
So, separate from the fact we return almost every year to Puerto, I'll focus instead of Casa Familia.
-- Beds are comfortable. There is nothing worse than an uncomfortable bed on vacation
-- Two levels. Depending on the makeup of your party, it was perfect for us. The master and guest bedroom up top for us and the kids, the bottom room for my mother
-- Two decks, including a huge outdoor dining table. We never ate inside once
-- Kitchen is great
-- Bathrooms were wonderful. Great water pressure, which has been iffy at other places we stayed
-- Wifi is painfully slow. Under 768kb. If you need super high speed, you need to head to town. If you need to check email, you're fine
-- Satellite TV is 20 channels vs full lineup. We just sent the kids outside to play.
We plan to book again next year, with Gina, of course!

What a wonderful home! From the beds and bath to the patios and the beach out front, this place was so amazing. We enjoyed being so close to shops, food, bars, and yet on a quiet beach where we could relax! I will definitly be coming back!
