A WONDERFUL two story condo that could easily sleep six - there were only three of us - a GREAT location minutes from the beach and highway - plus FREE access to all of the Bahia Principle facilities (beaches, pools,.....) and reduced prices at their restaurants. A SUPER home base for our visits to Maya ruins at Tulum and Coba, and many local beaches. BEST OF ALL were the people = very friendly and helpful. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAO ZEN.
The condo is located away from the highway surrounded by trees, so it's very quiet. The building design is nice with attention to details. The rooftop deck is private and serene. The apartment is well equipped.
The wellness centre lap pool is great, the gym is on the small side.
Unfortunately there was no BBQ in the unit, and the shared common area one was out of order during our stay.
There is also a lot of driving involved, however that is true for this entire coast and not specific to this condo. For example the closest large grocery store is about 20 minutes away.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
For three days, this rental was perfect! After a trip around the Yucatan it was lovely to have a base where we could cook and relax at our leisure. The complex is beautiful and the property manager was attentive.
We had a couple of issues while there, the air conditioning kept short-circuiting, the satellite television didn't work properly and the hot water would run out quickly, so speedy showers and no hot tub for us. However, as soon as the air conditioning was mentioned to the property manager it was fixed within hours. Definitely not big problems, but little niggles that might have got on our nerves with a longer stay.
Everything else was wonderful! The apartment is tastefully furnished, has a washer / dryer which was amazing, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was, to quote my boyfriend, 'the best bathroom in the world'. The property manager was friendly and helpful and the facilities on the residential estate were 5*.
We did explore the Hotels attached to the property, but package holidays aren't our thing. However,the fact you get use of all of these facilities included is impressive and would certainly be a big plus to many. The hotels are obviously of a very high quality! And like us, if you prefer something quieter, you can travel off the resort to local beaches and attractions. Tulum beach is a must.
Should we go back to this area, we'd definitely book again and I'll also be recommending it to friends and family.
