Property Details

Updated: Jan 7, 2015
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Best location at the best price. Great view.

Luxury PH condo in two levels and two ocean view balconies. Located on the best beach (Chac Mol Beach) and the best location in the 'Hotel Zone' nearly across the street from the famous Sr.Frogs and within easy walking distance of the 'Forum By The Sea' shopping center (home to the Hard Rock Cafe, Carlos and Charlie’s, Coco Bongo, and numerous shops, convenience stores, and internet cafe), multiple shopping centers, the Convention Center, and the best nightlife in all of Cancun. You will be able to balance the relaxation of lying on the beach with a good book while the warm trade winds blow through your hair and the surf of the azure Caribbean ocean embraces your feet.

You can work up a sweat on our tennis court and then cool off at one of our two sparkling pools with plenty of lounge chairs to work on your tan, or swim in the gorgeous Caribbean Sea.

Great location, great view, comfortable space

  • 4 of 5
Room was as pictured and cozy. Plenty of room for the 6 of us that stayed. Was clean and we'll maintained. Can't really speak for the two double beds but master bed was more comfortable than most hotel beds I've stayed in. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and own shower which was great. The view from the room was patio was what sold us on this place. It was spectacular. Location is perfect. 5 min walk to the best clubs, plenty of restaurants, a shopping malls flea market and more. Pool was fine for the kids. Nice to just walk out to the beach everyday and be able to swim. Has fridge, microwave, stove, and plenty of dishes and cooking pans etc. even had a coffe maker. Owner provided plenty of instruction how to get there and get into the room. We were disappointed that the housekeeper didn't show up half way through our stay like we were told she would to give is fresh towels and sheets so we had to pay to have them washed as a laundromat up the street a couple blocks (we were there almost two weeks so really needed clean ones). Since the building is a hotel, and the room is not owned by the hotel you have to pay $10 a day of you want to access their wifi which was dumb but minor. Then the hotel was also doing construction on some of the rooms and thus created a lot of noise which was annoying but not too bad since we were mostly out on the beach or doing activities. Also condo has a really small water heater so it runs out pretty fast, but another minor issue. Overall good place to stay, a lot cheaper than staying in a hotel or resort on the beach and had a great experience in Cancun.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I appreciate your review. All comments encourage me to improve my service. I apologize about the blankets and towels second cleaning, perhaps it was a lack of communication. WiFi connection is a problem, however In ten days time I'll have my own connection, so this problem will be solved very soon. Renovation in some units is an issue, however these units are a little bit far away so into the unit noise is too low. Works soon will be finished.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend this Penthouse. Excellent Thanksgiving family vacation!
We had a great time staying there. The view is phenomenal! The place is clean and organized. The rooms were very comfortable and super clean. Everything you need to feel at home.
Location is excellent! The location of the PH was in the center of everything shops, clubs, restaurants... There is a brand new grocery store near the PH called Chedraui. It’s really nice compared to the grocery stores in the US.
We would definitely go back.
**The owner of the PH was always quick to respond and courteous to answer any questions I had.

Second stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed again this year in April for 4 days. The owner definitely puts in the effort and makes the improvements he says he will. There was new sheets, dishes and other items present that were not there on our stay in February. He had sevral items that needed attention repaired as well as changing the balcony railings to the clear glass style. On my second stay i remain as impressed as my wife's and my first stay. We have now completely changed our plans from doing all inclusive resorts to using condos going forward. The value to money spent can not be beat. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!!

Cute condo in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed in this condo for 2 weeks in July 2013. I'm sorry that I am just writing this review, but I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware of how nice this condo is for the price. Let's just say that my family was pleasantly surprised on how cute and spacious the condo was as we walked through the door. We immediately started taking pictures before we unpacked. The oceanview from the livingroom is gorgeous and condo interior was as expected. We found everything in decent, working condition and found no issues with cooking meals using the stove top. We had one minor issue with the TV, but we figured it out after a day and no further issues.
I cannot say enough about the location being in close proximity to the party center, shopping mall, pharmacy, Senior Frogs,and restaurants. We saved lots of money on transportation. My family consists of ages ranging from 1 to 44 and we all had a fabulous time. Some things that made the trip so special were the feeling of having our 'own place' and not just renting. The front desk and security were very attentive, and also the little restaurant was wonderful and the prices were cheap. My daughter's father lives in Cancun and I paid the cooks to prepare a family style meal for all of us. My 18yr old daughter just met her Mexican grandmother, cousins, aunts, and uncles for the first time and la Girasol made it possible within my budget. My family from the USA staying in the condo felt like the swimming pools were there just for us during the day. (Many people living at la Girsol work during the day.)
Something else that I want to make people aware of is that there is a great burrito place close to the pharmacy, that has a bar and music. Also, there is a convenience store and pharmacy just around the corner too. My grandson got an ear infection and I took him to the pharmacy, they actually had a doctor available that checked him out and wrote him a prescription within an hour. I don't get that kind of service in the USA.
I would rent this condo again in a heartbeat on my next Cancun vacation!

Great value for your dollars

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at this condo Feb 11 - 18 2014. We loved it!
The building itself is under a massive renovation plan so you have to be prepared for that. From 9-5 they are working. The elevators have been redone along with main hallways on each flr. The pool and grounds are well kept and at one of the best beach watching spots in Cancun. It is a condo complex not a hotel so you cant go in expecting it to be managed like one. The staff were excellent but as it is primarily a condo complex owned by Mexican nationals most don't speak English. The ones that do were very helpful and polite.
The condo itself was stunning at first appearance. You walk in and you see floor to ceiling sliding doors looking out on the ocean and beach. The wall length mirror only enhances the view. If you like that then you will love the master bedroom that has the same size balcony also looking over the beach and ocean! Hope you like beautiful sun rises! The rest of the condo has newer tile floors and has newer furniture.
There is a full size fridge which is super nice if you are going to cook or buy stuff for all the frozen drinks you're going to want. There is a new blender there just for that purpose! The stove is just a dual hotplate. We made eggs and bacon every morning on it. Other than breakfast the point of not going all inclusive at a resort is to enjoy all the local food and not feel guilty about spending extra money. This condo is perfect for that. The price allowed us to eat at several fantastic places and not even come close to what we would have paid at our all inclusive property we normally stay at. The condo was clean and basically well maintained.
We caught the bus in front of the building and went to Walmart. It was fast and convenient and being from Canada the liquor prices were great!
Now the kitchen light did work but it took us till day 3 to find the switch behind the coffee maker.
The stairs are a spiral stair and while solid we did notice a piece of wood that was stripping back. It certainly did not feel unsafe and we had no issues.
We had plenty of towels and fresh sheets. The fact we tipped the cleaning staff 10$ when they were cleaning up from the last people may have contributed to that.
Had no issue with the power sockets but didn't check them all.
Overall it is a great condo for the value and in a fantastic location. Being Cancun veterans & understanding what Mexico is like we recommend it & we are already booked at this condo again!

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'll do my best in order to keep my condo in perfect conditions. I take into acount all your and my former guests recommendations and surely I'll apply them as soon as possible. Indeed, I agree the sunrise is amazing. Once the lower suites have finished their repairs soon, the condo will be one of the best ones in Cancun considering value, benefits and location.

Great Location with Helpful Staff

  • 4 of 5
Two of my friends and I stayed here for our graduate school spring break, and the location was perfect. Girasol is located right in between the pedestrian areas of the Zona Hotelera and all of the all-inclusive resorts further south. This makes for easy access to the restaurants, venues, and bars, while still managing to be a quiet spot to relax.

The condo also has a lovely view of the ocean from its balcony, which was taken advantage of for breakfast in the morning, and drinks in the evening. The staff for the complex were also very helpful, and whenever we had issues or questions they were very quick to respond. The only downsides to the unit were that the kitchen was a bit small for the type of cooking that I usually like doing on beach vacations, and that there is a restriction on using grills in the complex. There also seems to be some construction and renovations going on in the complex, so I'd expect things are getting better.

Carmina, who operates the tourist information booth out front, was also extremely helpful. We booked a trip to Chichen Itza, rented a car to drive to Tulum and Playa del Carmen, a booze cruise, and a cab to get back to the airport through her. All of the services and recommendations were great, so definitely reach out to her if you want to go on any adventures.

Owner's Response: Thank you. Kitchenate is a little bit small, however it has all you need. Some lower rooms in the complex are being renewed, but soon all will be finished. Cost benefit is very positive.
