With 4150 square feet of luxurious space to spread out over, you certainly won't feel cramped in this colourful Villas del Mar penthouse vacation rental condo that boasts 4 oceanfront bedrooms. (for smaller groups we will lock off 1 of the bedrooms and lower the rates)
Pura Vida is part of Puerto Aventuras' premier condo complex, Villas del Mar. This upscale development has five buildings clustered in a wide horseshoe arrangement around a large lawn/garden/pool area. The pool and grounds alone would be enough to satisfy most anyone. However, it doesn't end there. Villas del Mar fronts one of the most gorgeous powdery white sand beaches you can imagine (see top photo). It truly is an inviting and idyllic spot. You will most certainly feel that you are on a luxurious Riviera Maya vacation when you experience it all.Â Â
Adding to the appeal of this location is your proximity to the many services and attractions Puerto Aventuras has to offer. In less than 5 minutes you can be teeing up to play golf, climbing into a dive boat, headed off to do battle with a sailfish, dining in a tranquil outdoor restaurant, swimming with dolphins or shopping for a special gift for that someone back home who is missing out on the Pura Vida. Of course, all of this is only available if you can drag yourself away from the terrace with its' wonderful view, then past that great swimming pool and beyond the gin clear Caribbean waters.Â Â
Once you step into the condo entranceway,Â Â you are immediately taken by the bright open feel that the design and finishing provide. Straight ahead is the living room with 3 couches providing ample sitting area. A TV with Cable and DVD is there should you want it, but the true viewing pleasure is through the wall of sliding glass doors that slip right back into the wall before leading out to the terrace with the pool and ocean just beyond.
The terrace has an outdoor dining table for 8 to dine au fresco or share a sundowner while you review all that you did or didn't do that day. A gas bar-b-que tucked to the side is there to grill up a steak or the catch of the day. Later on after the sun has tucked itself in for the night, you may want to snuggle into the soaking tub or lay out in the double hammock and watch the stars as they twinkle.
Off to the side of the living room is a large wet bar with shutters that pass through to the kitchen. The full size kitchen on the other side is colourful and cheery. You will find it well stocked with the dishware and appliances required to prepare meals in or to entertain. A large refrigerator provides plenty of space to store food and those all so important refreshments. A pass through counter from the kitchen to the dining room opens the kitchen up so the cook is not left out. 3 stools on the dining room side make a good place to hang out with the cook or provide extra seating at meal times. The dining room has a large table with seating for 8.
Off to the other side of the living room is the first of 4 bedrooms. This one has a King bed, private sitting area inside and small terrace overlooking the pool. Another door leading out to a hallway gives access to a bathroom with shower. Although not connected directly to the bedroom, the positioning of the hallway makes this bathroom quite private.
Following down the hallway back towards the entranceway you pass the stairs going up to the second level. At the top of the stairs is a very inviting sitting area that begs you to grab a book and sit down. Three bedroom entrances radiate out from here.
The center bedroom is a very large master suite with King bed. A sitting area provides privacy should the occupants desire some alone time. A small terrace will draw you for morning coffee or romantic sundowner. The real jewel of this room is the Jacuzzi tub with a view. WOW.... even if you don't like taking baths you will want to draw a tub here. There is also a separate shower.
On either side of the master suite are two large bedrooms. Each of these have two Queen beds and attached bathroom with shower. Both of these bedrooms have small terraces so you can sit outside and take in that wonderful view and warm tropical weather....Read more

We stayed here in January 2014, as a group of 7 (6 adults, one child). The condo was very spacious and clean with a lovely view of the ocean. The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. The beach is also gorgeous and well maintained. There are lots of services within a short walking distance.
Spacious and Beautiful

The views from this two floor, spacious condo are amazing! Standing on any blacony (and there are many of them) you only see the beautiful ocean, palm trees and perfectly maintained pool/grounds. I loved not having any other buildings in my sight line. And the rooms were huge! Our family of six had an amazing time in Mexico and coming home to the Pura Vida condo at the end of our tours was a real treat. I'll also say this particular beach is very family friendly (which many of the beaches in the Cancun area are not). As a mom with young teen-aged children, I appreciated that. Great space, great service - we were very pleased.

We liked the home alot - especially since it was on the ground floor. It was so convenient to walk to the village to eat or shop. Upon our arrival, there was a lovely assortment of fruit and other items for our use. We appreciated receiving good service whenever we called with a problem or just to tell them we were ready for more bottled water.
The layout of the home was great for our family of eight. We love Puerto Avanturas.

We go to Puerto Aventuras and stay at Villa Del Mar at least once a year. We have rented various condos and they have all been fabulous. This year we only had 4 in our group but still went for the Pura Vida condo. It is an incredible unit with tons of space, perfect for large groups, and spectacular views. The balcony looks out over the pool and beach and it breathtaking. The accommodations, restaurants, markets and beaches are some of the best I have ever seen. I highly recommend it!!
Fabulous condo on prime beach in Mexico!

We stayed at this condo between Christmas and New Year's 2008/2009. There were 8 of us, and we had *plenty* of room. The unit is ridiculously big with two levels of space. Watching the sunrise every morning was spectacular. This was our first time in Puerto Aventuras. It is an adorable town/village with great restaurants, friendly people, and everything within walking distance. There's an internet cafe right next to Villas Del Mar, and the Omni (Beach Bar and restaurant) was a very short stroll down the beach. We hung out at Gringo Dave's a lot, watching football games and meeting people. We also parasailed which was an amazing experience. The condo was just as described, very comfortable with all the amenities including bottled water. We didn't spend too much time inside; the balcony was a perfect place for late afternoon card games. Although it was a busy time of year, it seemed like we had the huge pool to ourselves. Our daily schedule consisted of beach, pool, food, drink, beach, pool, food, drink, etc. It doesn't get much better than that!
