Abbey Del Sol Rocks!
This was our first time in Puerto Morelos (POMO) and we loved the town, people, ambiance and had an awesome experience with Abbey Del Sol (ADS) and their staff. From the time you arrive at the airport and are picked up (hassle free) by Ride Mexico for the quick 25 minute drive, to the first step inside your room, you quickly appreciate the experience and realize that the ADS is a step above. The ADS is also just one block from one of the best beach spots in POMO. We enjoyed taking our beach chairs over to the Dive Lodge every day and spending hours on the beach and the ability to get a bite to eat, cold beer or cocktail at the Dive Lodge Bar. The bike provided by the ADS to navigate the quaint town is fantastic and really enhanced our time there. The new supermarket in town is fantastic and every restaurant was a hit. Also the grounds at the ADS are impeccably maintained, the rooms are well equipped and clean and the entire staff is super friendly. POMO is such cool town and a breath of fresh air compared to the hustle and bustle of Cancun. Jin also assisted us with Cenotes tours through Ride Mexico which was awesome and very personalized. We travel to many different locations in Mexico and this ranked very high on our list. We have already recommended this property to many of our friends and we will also return to the ADS.

Peaceful and Convenient
Abbey del Sol was rented for me, sight, unseen. What a nice surprise! The apartment was spacious and, most important for me, quiet. The grounds & pool are lovely, safely tucked behind a gated wall yet a few short blocks walk to the Plaza's shops & many restaurants. My high praise goes to the staff who were all friendly, helpful. The best thing I can say is that I'd stay again.

Review Jan 2019
We stayed in Apt #8 on the ground floor. It was a very comfortable apartment. We were very happy with Abbey del Sol - it's very nicely designed and kept up. The layout of the property offers many options for relaxing (a nice bonus during the hotter times of the day!) Each apt has it's own balcony/porch, the pool area is very pleasant, and there is a shaded palapa on the roof (where yoga classes are held in the high season). The staff is excellent and very accommodating. The owners are very nice. The one note I would have for Apt #8 is that it is the least private of the apts. Everyone has to walk by it to get to where they are going. Even so, there isn't constant traffic, and we still were able to have plenty of quiet time on our porch. The apt itself is very nice and comfortable. The property is toward the far end of town, but it's an easily walkable distance to the plaza of Puerto Morelos. There are also bikes available, and it's easy to take a taxi if you don't want to walk the 15 min to or from the plaza. We really enjoyed early morning walks to the plaza along the beach every day. Abbey Del Sol is quiet, peaceful, convenient, and comfortable -- just what we were looking for!

A Perfect Retreat
We stayed in a large ground floor one bedroom apartment . This well equipped and spacious apartment had its own terrace overlooking the community pool but it was always quiet and peaceful as most guests went to the beach just a few steps away. The staff were always friendly and helpful, unobtrusive but very responsive to our needs.<br/>We enjoyed going to a different restaurant each night for dinner and the fifteen minute walk to the restaurant area downtown was always a pleasure. There are many places in town to buy healthy foods for home made breakfasts and lunches and a terrific cafe downtown to have that morning Java and watch the world go by. We always recommend this building to all ages of friends as there are good activities for the whole family in the town and general area. <br/>

A Special Place!
Owners pay attention to detail from their extremely user friendly and informative webpage to the design and decorating of the building and rooms to making sure the guests are well looked after. I arranged for my daughter, her husband and their two young boys to stay here. Their holiday schedule only allowed them 4 days in the Abbey, but they loved it! Very clean and well maintained. Everything looked freshly painted and the wall murals, plants and touches like the unique small fountain were lovely and artistic. Kitchen well equipped, though the family opted to try out many of the restaurants, especially for fish, tacos, pizza and steak! Staff and other guests were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The beach is only a 2 or 3 minute walk away. The town square and the majority of the eating places and shops are perhaps a 10 minute walk, but free bikes are supplied for guest use, and inexpensive taxi service is available. A place with a cozy, homey, yet exotic feel!

Puerto Morellos Vacation
We enjoyed this small butique hotel it felt as if we had the place to ourselves. The other guess we're very friendly as were the hotel staff. The bikes that the hotel provides for use to go into town was very useful it made the trip into town easy.<br/><br/> The only complaint would be that my wife and I had bed bug bites all over our legs we didn't notice anything on the bed. We first thought we had an alergic reaction to mosquito bites but we sprayed Off with deed so when we came home we went to see the doctor and they confirmed bed bug bits. We emailed the hotel to informed them of of what the doctors told us just so that they were aware. They mention that sand fleas are very active in the area so could have been the cause to our bites but we never went to the beach during our stay. Overall we really like the place and all that is offered to do in the surrounding area.

Dear Martin, Thank you for your review. I would like to correct your mention of bed bugs however - we do not have bed bugs. We are a rental in the tropics and occasionally our guests are in the unhappy 10% of people who get what is almost an allergic reaction to sand flea bites. Sand fleas are not just in sand, they are in grass, trees, dirt, concrete. Here is a thread on Trip Advisor that has a link that shows photos of what the bites look like for the unhappy 10%. Then there are about 20% that get nothing (especially after they have visited us a few times and their body chemistry adjusts.) Then there is a range of people in between. Unless you see a doctor that has been treating people in the tropics they really don’t know what they are looking at. Check out these links. Hopefully it will be helpful. (the poster misspelled important). (this is the link From Stanford that is in the post above. It has the photos.) Warm regards, Abby

The place is fantastic, unpretentious and beautiful. We are a family of 4 with two small children (5 and 7). We cooked in the apartment during half of our stay, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The free bikes available help us a lot getting food from the town centre (8-9 blocks away). The town is quiet and felt super safe, it is a bit isolated so I would recommend renting a car to go around and explore the Riviera or for grocery shopping in the "Colonia" (A five minutes ride, or $30 mexican pesos using a cab. Driving is quite safe.

I was finally able to sleep
Let me start by saying I had originally booked 12 days in Cancun at another property. The other property was very dissapointing and after 5 days I simply walked away without being able to get a refund. A Mexican man in Cancun told me about Puerto Morelos and described the area as "tranquilo" and I could understand enough spanish to know that is what I wanted. I quickly got on the internet and after looking at 5 or 6 places I found the Abby Del Sol II. I made all the arrangments that day over the internet and arrived the next day. I was so relieved the moment we arrived and walked through the gate and heard the gurgling water fountain and lush vegitaion. Then we met Pilar, she runs the office and is a wonderful woman with a bright smile and perfect english. Pilar made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived until the moment her staff took us to the airport on the last day. The Abby is quiet, comfortable, reasonable and as described which is VERY important to me. Only a block or so from the beach which makes it nice and quiet. Its about a 10 minutes to walk to the town square for shopping and food. In all a great place for a romantic get away or for a family event. I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.

Our bed was comfortable. Availability of DVDs was a nice addition. Our one minor criticism would be that our unit (#8) could stand a bit of spiffing up. We visited other units, and found that they were much more spacious and attractive. Unit 8 was the only one available when we made reservations. In a perfect world, we would have preferred a different unit. Nonetheless, our stay was very enjoyable and we will return.

A Little apt fully equipped with everything you could need, even cute bags for your laundry or taking your towels and etc to the beach. Wish we could have stayed a week! Would have loved to have enjoyed a bicycle ride around the town, as they supply them. And relaxed with a bottle of wine in our room and watch a first rate DVD (a fabulous library provided).
