We love Abbey del Sol, with one caveat
Abbey del Sol is a wonderful oasis away from the crowds but close enough to downtown Puerto Morelos (10-15 minute walk) to take advantage of an exceptional supermarket, shops, restaurants and other services offered there. Abbey del Sol's staff are wonderful, helpful and responsive, the units are very well and thoughtfully outfitted, everything was perfect except... we discovered during this stay that the management company accepts children as guests. Normally this might not be an issue but unfortunately not all children, or parents, exhibit behaviour that is thoughtful of others staying at the property. We witnessed adults vacating the pool area when certain families appeared and heard complaints from other guests of early morning activities and noise heard through flooring and off balconies. Unfortunate, as these episodes spoil the absolutely wonderfully relaxing experience that Abbey del Sol usually affords. Children being allowed isn't mentioned on Abbey del Sol's website (that I could find) so this was a complete surprise to us.

Spacious Apartment, Relaxing Pool, Quiet Location - Terrific!
Abbey del Sol is a 7-unit complex on the northern end of town. It is comprised of two 3-story buildings with a lovely pool in between. The pictures on their website are accurate. It is very well maintained and the apartment was spacious, well equipped and very clean. The Abbey del Sol management office is located at this property (they managed probably 10 properties in the area) and they are so helpful and fun to talk with (especially Mariela and Jin). They had new bikes (8 or 10) this visit and we really enjoyed riding them around town. This is a great place to stay when in Puerto Morelos.

Abbey Del Sol #2<br/><br/>We spent 11 nights at Abbey Del Sol #2. We lived in Apt. 10 for the first six nights and then moved to Apt. 8 (as Apt. 10 had a prior booking). The setting is perfect. The apartments surround a courtyard and garden with a swimming pool and lounge chairs in the center. The property and gardens are attractive and are well maintained. It is only a two block walk to the beach and about a 20 minute walk into the town center. It was always a pleasure to come back to the Abbey. It is quiet and cool. The rooms are equipped with ceiling fans. A/C is also there but we found that the fans were enough. Both apartments we were in were well equipped. We ate both breakfast and lunch on our terrace and then frequented one of the numerous good restaurants for dinner. You will find a great book in each apartment which provides lots of information about Puerto Morelos, including a list of recommended restaurants.<br/>Abby and Tiff were wonderful and always made us feel at home and welcomed. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. <br/>Apt. 10 is considerably larger than Apt. 8 and it also has a very nice balcony with a table and 4 chairs as well as 2 lounge chairs. We really felt at home in this apartment. Apt. 8, though smaller, is certainly comfortable for two.<br/>

Surprises: 1) The bed was AWESOME! Mexico for me, has been known as a country with very hard beds. Unit 10 in Abbey del Sol has a comfy bed - one of the better beds I've slept on. The bedroom gets nice and cool at night. Both of these factors added up to great night's sleeps. 2) the folks who cleaned the room mid-stay really took pride in their work. They made cleaned thoroughly, restocked, and left fresh flowers. 3) the pool is surprisingly cold. We had water served to us at restaurants in town that were warmer than the pool ;) The courtyard is shaded so that explains that. It was still nice - you just had to coax yourself in slowly. 4) One evening, our electricity went out - only in our apartment. We got in touch with Tin who got electricians out and had it working again by the time we went to bed. <br/><br/>Here were our favorite restaurants: El Nicho (Breakfast), Unico Beach (Lunch), and My Little Italy (Dinner). We had bloody Mary's a couple of times at Pangea in town - very nice and a good drink. <br/><br/>One thing we missed was walking to the other side of the town square for meals. We had all of ours on the north side of the town square but on the last night, we walked past the flea market (blissfully closed at night) and saw several other restaurants we wished we had tried. That's a reason to go back!<br/><br/>The people at Abbey del Sol were lovely. Both the guests and the employees but especially notable were Caroline, Nancy, and Tin.
