What a wonderful time! We had a layed back and lovely time in Puerto Morelos. The Staff at Abby del Sol were key in making our stay so nice. They treated us like family and were always helpful. We would definitely return.

We loved Abby del Sol. We had spent the first part of our vacation about a mile from town on a quiet beach, and we were excited to spend the remainder in town, where there's a little more action (but not too much). We looked at several places in town and Abby del Sol was our favorite. Situated on a quiet street, about two blocks from the beach, the location could not be beat.
Abby and Tiff were incredibly friendly and helpful. When Abby showed us the rental (apt 4) we knew immediately it was the place for us. The apartment is huge, beautifully decorated, with two large bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. The Wifi worked great, too. There is a hot tub and small pool in the flower- filled back yard. We shared the yard with several iguanas. When they were sick of sun, my teenagers spent a great deal of time on the comfy hammock on the deck. Abby and Tiff provide free bikes to their guests and we had a great time riding to the restaurants near the town square. This is definitely a town for "foodies".
In addition, they have a cache of movies in the office. My children loved watching films at night before bed. Tiff put us in touch with Paco, a fantastic guide who took us snorkeling on the reef.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed in #4 at Abbey del Sol One. It is even more impressive than the photos depict on the web site. The apartment was spotless with everything we could possibly need. The grounds were a tropical paradise and very well maintained. The view from the rooftop deck was spectacular. A few short blocks away are pristine beaches. We will be back next year for our vacation.

Abbey del Sol One unit 4 (the downstairs big unit) is quiet and artistically furnished with modern, Mayan and Spanish colonial themes. I've stayed there in the spring, summer and fall. All air conditioners work well and are quiet. There have been no mechanical or maintenance problems and the pool and hot tub were always very clean. Jin and Freddy were always available should a problem arise or when I needed advice. The beach is a 600 foot (200 meter) walk from the front door. Unit 4 is very private, with an essentially your own 12x20 foot (4x6.5 meter) pool and hot tub outside under the stars. I could turn on the hot tub at any time (~1 hour warm up) and adjust it to any temperature I wanted. This feature in itself beats any resort that I've been to. Also, including food and drink prices, unit 4 is 1/3-1/5 the price of any nearby resort (for the same size and quality of room) and a lot more private.

We were absolutely happy and everyone was helpful and kind. The only problem was the time when light went off. Apparently there is a problem with the electricity company. Apart from that, everything was good.

We made late reservations for our stay in Puerto Morelos and abby was able to accomodate us even if we had to live in 3 different appartments during our 10-day visit.
This appartment was the best: first floor, near the pool, large 2-bedrooms,very nicely appointed,super clean.Could easily accomodate 6-8 persons comfortably.Large kitchen w/island.Our only negative comment would be that there is no hot water at the kitchen sink.Everything else was perfect;staff friendly & helpful.
We will definitely go back again.
Pierrette, so sorry you had trouble with the hot water in the kitchen sink in #4. There is hot water but there must have been something wrong with the plumbing. It is working now. I'm so sorry we didn't know you were having trouble while you were there. We attempt to fix things the moment we find out about them. Thank you for being such wonderful guests.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The beach is fantastic and just a short walk. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning on the porch observing the iguanas on the wall, the geckos and the birds. The apartment is well equipped including beach chairs and umbrellas. A great "go to" place for all ages, especially when escaping a Minnesota winter.

This is my fourth year at abbey del Sol; each year I come for more time. The staff is so nice, the decision to provide sundries free makes it so pleasant (towels, tp, soap, all dishes, Laptop wireless hookup,Tv) I loved being there,so close to the ocean, close to downtown, great resturants,markets.
