This 270 unit 'Beach Front Resort is located in Cancun's famous "Zona Hotelera" (Hotel Zone) about midway between Club Med and the Hilton Hotel. If you are seeking a peaceful vacation, yet want to be near all the attractions, restaurants and night time entertainment Cancun offers, then this is the place for you!

The beach in front of the resort offers white soft sand and clear turquoise waters. Traveler reviews consistently rate this as one of the nicest beaches in all of Cancun.

Our unit is conveniently located on the second floor of the Resort, with an elevator nearby. As you can see from our pictures, this unit has an incredible view of the pool, gardens, beach and ocean.

Just recently (Spring 2016) the studio was completely updated/remodeled. We had a new custom made Kitchenette, dinning room set, Marble top bathroom vanity, full size refrigerator, microwave, beds, curtains & armoire installed. It is with out a doubt one of the nicest Studios in the Resort.

Although this is our privately owned studio/condo, we enjoy its "resort type" facilities. The complex has 24-hour security including a gated entry, staffed Laundromat, a mini market, on-site restaurants (2), lobby, pool & beach bar.

We hope you will come and enjoy our little piece of paradise during a fun and active vacation, or just to get away from it all and relax.

About Rodrigo Sagastegui

In 2015 we finally did something we've been planning out for years... to have our very own vacation property. Every time we used VRBO to rent one for us during the last several years we kept thinking, "that would be a great way to go about a beach front property in the Caribbean". So we finally did it! And we were extremely lucky to find a property like this, in great condition, and in a beautiful and extremely convenient location/setup!

Rodrigo Sagastegui purchased this studio in 2015

Why Rodrigo Sagastegui chose Cancun

My wife and I were both born and raised in Mexico (Guadalajara). About 20 years ago, my career forced us to relocate to north central Florida (Gainesville) were we lived for 10 years. Then another career move forced us to move a little bit further north, the Pocono Mountains (East Stroudsburg, PA). So after 20 years living as ex-pats we take every chance we get to take our two your kids, (7 and 9) to our beloved home country...

What makes this studio unique

There's so much to see and do around Cancun, that location plays a HUGE role on how much you get out of your visit as a tourist. So staying at the main tourist zone ("Zona Hotelera") gives you a logistical advantage in order to move around with ease. If you rent a car, fantastic. But if you don't, the public transportation system runs 24/7 and the closest stop is right outside this resort.

Beautiful view. Beautiful Beach

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights here which we now realize is not near enough!! Leaving this morning but we WILL be back. Condo is nice, view from balcony beautiful. Condo very clean and plenty of space for two people. Internet is great, TV has many English channels but we spent most of our time on beach... however they do take your chair at 5. I'm the type you have to drag off the beach so I was really sad to give my chair up when there was so much beautiful day left. Also if your not "all inclusive" dining options very limited. We just went to Oxxo and got lunch stuff and made spaghetti one night. Ate lunch every day at Beach grill .. Juan and Eduardo were great. Guacamole delicious as were fish Tacos. Beer ice cold. Mixed drinks were OK not great. Opted for water last day and it cost more than a margarita but it was a huge bottle. I love the beach vendors coming by. Bought starfish and some bracelets. Everyone has been very friendly... even taking my chair ( which were very comfy and plentiful) Lots of space on beach.. unlike Destin. Condo dwellers get a much nicer chair so be sure you get one for "Condo " Rodrigo was very helpful and timely with information. I have suggestions for a couple of things but nothing that would stop me from coming again. Pillows were great, sheets soft, bed just a little firm, AirConditoner very cold and easy to cool down so do as he asks and turn off while you are gone. Breeze and waves at night incredible. Last two nights too humid and warm but first two night... incredible! We were looking for a regular come to place in Cancun and I hope we have found it. We LOVED IT!!!!

clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Rodrigo's condo was great. The condo has everything you need. The beds were comfortable, the space was sufficient, and the views were amazing. The only suggestion we have is in regards to the towels. There were four of us there (2 adults/2 children) and we stayed for 9 nights. The four bath towels provided were just not enough. Another issue we had (although this is not Rodrigo's fault AT ALL) was that there was construction going on on a condo a floor above us, which was very loud and annoying. The work would begin by 9 am, so staying up late and sleeping in were not realistic options for us. It got so loud that we would often forego eating breakfast in the room to get out of there as soon as possible. The work would continue all day long, with a couple of days going into the evening/night.

The beach grill food was not that great and a little expensive, but it was very convenient. The hotel is not near restaurants/shops (walking distance) so know that you will either need to take a taxi or ride the bus.

As far as Rodrigo's hospitality: he was very helpful and was only a call or text away. He helped us figure out how to print out some online tour tickets we had purchased, which was great. We love Cancun and plan to return in a couple of years, and would definitely look into this condo again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback! As far as the towels, most of my guests prefer the money "savings", vs paying the optional US$25 cleaning fee (otherwise only exit cleaning is included in the booking price). I usually explain to my guests the cleaning process includes the bedding/towel exchange, but so far, they all skip that option. Until now, nobody had brought up the shortage of towels, but I will bring it up starting tomorrow in order for nobody to feel disappointed with the amount of towels during their stay. Option "b" could be to make it "mandatory" to have a cleanup sonetime during your stay anytime a stay is longer than 5 night or so? I will try a couple of things and see what works best for everyone. Thanks again for your comments/suggestion!

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I reached out to Rodrigo I was automatically impressed with my experience. Rodrigo was incredibly thorough with contacting me & honestly describing everything about his property, what was to expect and experience. He accommodated me last minute due to another host, through another company canceling last minute. Rodrigo was always quick to respond and so helpful with booking my trip with extreme patience.

Rodrigo emailed me a couple of days before check in to thoroughly describe all possible experiences with going to Cancun. Very informative!

The check in process was so incredibly easy with the lock keypad, no key. The property is exactly to the pictures on the website. The basics are all there: pots, pans, cutting board, blender for Margaritas (wish I would of seen that earlier), Tupperware, pepper, sugar, etc. No salt, so if you want that, bring it. If you plan on doing a lot of cooking I'd plan on bringing some sandwich bags for storage and a reusable shopping bag to carry groceries (be sure to visit the two story grocery plaza near Coco Bongo area, so aweomse & cheap; these are just travel suggestions, nothing against Rodrigo). The view from the room is just picture perfect. The bed was comfy & had the softest sheets I've ever felt. The property is nice. Nothing fancy, just right, the view & beach access is perfection, like 20 steps down from the property & on the sand. What made me book this location was the possibility of doing all inclusive or not. Still had "hotel accommodation" such as bell hop, swim up pool bar, etc or do your own thing. The security at this location is impressive; very thorough and serious about being safe. There are massages available on the beach on the property " & so worth it, treat yourself (1 hr,$40). Lounge chairs on the beach with shade is just right. Location of property is great. I walked along the hotel zone beach & was satisfied with the location. It's far enough away from the over crowded beaches but not too far from "downtown" (near Coco Bongo)-15 mins. Bus system is so easy & cost effective (11 pesos 1 way for 1 person). Uber is almost impossible there so be sure to talk among others/travelers to obtain information, HUGE cost difference.

This experience was so awesome & it was due to Rodrigo.

If you are looking for an honest host that is responsible & accommodating while enjoying the beauty of the beach with some quietness but not too far away from main area then this is your place.
