We are a growing multigenerational family that takes an annual vacation. There were 11 of us, 5 children, 8 months, 3,5,7,9 and parents and grandparents. Martins villa was perfect for us. I will say that we enjoyed the pool immensely, it was wonderful, with the shallow area for the small children, it really worked out well. Martin was so nice as I asked him a hundred questions and opinions. Several of us rented the fishing boat that Martin suggested and caught Mahi which we thoroughly enjoyed eating. We also hired the chef for 3 nights and the food was amazing, totally worth it and would do it more nights next time. We rented a catamaran out of Puerta Adventuras and had a wonderful few hours snorkeling and seeing the turtles and sting rays. We went to Xcaret one day , pay attention to the reviews, go to the river in the afternoon, the morning is so crowded, it almost seems like if you don't know what you are doing, which we didn't , they corral you into the area for the river first. Wait for the crowds to diminish and go to the river later in the day. We swam with the dolphins, and we all loved that. The beach area was nice and a place to headquarter as some went on their own adventures.Be careful of the ticket prices, they are all over the place in cost. We bought the majority of our groceries at the Wal Mart in Playa del Carmen. It was a large nice store and had everything we were looking for. We shopped the first day at the store closest to the villa and it was really crowded and we thought that the selection was poor. We went to the Wal Mart in Playa the next day.We did the tequila tasting that Martin recommended and that was a good time as well. We rented a van and were happy we did, we had considered using taxis but with all of us the van worked out perfect.
To close, Martin was a great host we had a wonderful time , his villa was perfect.
