Where can you go in the Riviera Maya that offers you absolutely everything? A bustling and lively night life, unique shopping, entertainment,  a multitude of restaurants, and proximity to history and local culture, all while staying on the most beautiful white, sandy beach? The answer is Playa del Carmen in the Riviera Maya!

Parallel to the beach in downtown Playa, you’ll find the astonishing 4 mile long pedestrian walkway of Quinta Avenida – 5th Avenue – which is lined with shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars, and clubs, making it a popular nightlife spot. In addition to street performers and entertainment, you’ll find some hidden gems, such as Mayan vestiges and even a freshwater cenote! While there’s no shortage of fantastic dining options along Fifth Avenue—including upscale and international cuisine some of the more authentic options are scattered on the surrounding side streets.

Playa del Carmen offers fun, sights & sounds. But when you’re ready for some peace and relaxation, you want to be at Vive El Sueño!

Eight minutes from 5th Ave,  this 3 +1 bedroom condo is perfect for large groups of up to 10 people. Located within the Corasol Complex, in the Mareazul Condominiums, you will find all the benefits of condo living, situated in a resort style setting.  This double-gated community offers everything:  a virtually private beach, the largest pool in the area, and exactly the sort of amenities you’re looking for on vacation.

In the centre of the complex, steps from your verandah, is our incredible pool. Beautifully maintained, the crystal blue waters that span over half of the complex, call to you each morning and you offer you a plethora of choices: will you enjoy your day under the numerous pergolas, or in one of the shaded beds? Looking out over the water you will see picturesque bridges, water features, water beds, and central platforms; where will you spend your day while you sit and take it all in?

An even more difficult choice will be whether to sit by the pool, or to relax on our white, sandy beach. This beach is the envy of all Playa. Given its location, it is practically private to our residents. We have our own loungers and umbrellas, laid out for you – exactly where you want them – by our helpful beach staff. You only need to show them where, and they will set it all up for you! Unlike the beaches in downtown Playa, there are no crowds blocking your view, no vendors asking you to purchase their wares, no bodies at all, in fact, between you and the blue water.

But it’s not always about relaxation, is it? Sometimes you want a little activity. This stretch of beach is well known for the perfect breeze that blows – enough to cool you and yet also enough for kitesurfing! Right next to our beach you will find an unassuming beach club that houses a kitesurfing school. Playa Boardsports, one of the best in the region, offers rentals of both kitesurfing equipment and paddleboarding, too. There amazing instructors can teach you how, or you can just get out there on your own! And when you’re done, Marena Beach Club is also the place to get a beachside massage!

If you have little ones with you, the beach is quiet enough to bring you peace of mind, offering clear lines of site and a shallow walk into the water. And when they’re tired of the beach, you can take them to the well-equipped play area beside the pool where you will find a climbing structure, slide, swings, a see-saw, and even a netted trampoline!

Away from the water are other onsite activities like tennis, pickleball, golf, and a fully equipped gym. Everything you need to strike the perfect balance in your time away! There’s even a spa for massage and aesthetics.

All of this is bound to make you hungry and, if you don’t feel like making yourself a bite to eat in our fully equipped kitchen then you can head to Faro Azul, our beachside restaurant that offers an extensive menu – both breakfast and lunch – and wonderful cocktails. Situated between the pool and the beach, the scenery is astounding. Then in the evening, you don’t need to walk more than a few metres to get to Punta Azul, the central restaurant of the complex which also offers an amazing array of options for dinner, from fish and seafood, to popular children’s choices, to a grill, and some seriously massive pizzas!

At the end of the day, when perhaps you'd like to head back to the condo but the kids don’t agree, you can strike the perfect compromise and enjoy time on your verandah while they continue to enjoy the water in your personal plunge pool. Eighty square metres of shallow fun for them, or a cool place for you to take a dip in between relaxing on the loungers, or swinging on the hammock, or after enjoying a bite to eat at the outdoor dining table.

And, when the day is done, retire to your beautifully appointed condo. Three full bedrooms – the master with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with two full beds, a third room with a queen bed and a single trundle underneath, and a forth option of a space with a single bed for helpers or for young children – all with ensuite bathrooms. If you choose to make your own dinner or, better yet, have one of our local chefs prepare you a meal, then you can settle together at the large hand-crafted dining table, and later gather in the comfortable living room and chat, play games, or watch a movie on the 55” television.

Vive El Sueño is cared for by Andrés and his team. Andrés is available to help you prepare for your arrival by offering a pre-arrival or mid-week grocery shop, access to tours, extra cleaning if you wish to add this, and he is on call to address any issues you may come across. Whatever it is you need or want, we’re here to make your vacation a memorable success.

We look forward to welcoming you to Vive El Sueño!

This was a great place to stay with a big family! Katherine and her team did an excellent job communicating with us throughout the entire stay. We felt comfortable and very safe. This is a beachfront property and has a pool in the patio of the unit, and there are several pools throughout the resort that you will enjoy. Taxis can get a bit pricey so I recommend getting a car if you would like to see the rest of the town (this is not within walking distance from 5th Avenue). However, there’s no need to leave at all since you have everything you need there. Brand new appliances and very spacious. I cannot say enough good things about Vive el Sueño!

Our family of 8 stayed at Vive el Sueno from July 1-5 and it was such an amazing experience! Beautiful location, beautiful set up and the upgrades were nothing short of amazing. Our stay was very comfortable and the plunge pool out back was our kids’ favorite part! The restaurants and the huge pool were all only a couple minutes from our room which of course made our stay even better. Plus having a beach front made for gorgeous views. Great communication between us and the property manager Andres, he answered every question asap and tended to any/all of our needs. Definitely a 10/10 all around and highly recommend MareAzul for your next Cancun stay. We can’t wait to go back!

Excellent host and wonderful beachfront location. This property and hostess really made a big difference in my family’s experience at Playa del Carmen. The property has just top quality furniture and accessories to make us feel at home. The property keeps an excellent location into the condo just close to everything. Andres is an excellent and responsive administrator. Lovely place we’ll surely come back.

Excelente lugar para vacacionar! Un excelente trato y muy seguro, las instalaciones estan muy bien equipadas y muy amplias, tanto en los departamentos como en las albercas! Los restaurantes estan excelentes tambien! Sin duda esperamos otras vacaciones para regresar! Katherine y Andrés fueron muy atentos y no se tardan en contestar! Nosotros hicimos una ceremonia maya y no batallamos para obtener los permisos de la administración con la ayuda de Andrés! Además, el chef Adrian nos ayudó para poder realizar la comida en el área de playa y la verdad estuvó buenisima la comida!

Es un resort con Excelentes instalaciones, muy bien ubicado a pasos de la 5ta avenida en playa del carmen, cuenta con playa a unos 100 pasos, y una alberca que sin duda los dejara maravillados. Es un lugar muy tranquilo, ideal para el descanso, con todas las comodidades que hacen que solo te enfoques en descansar y disfrutar de tus vacaciones. Hay un restaurante, servicios de spa y una barra que se encarga también de cubrir la necesidad de hidratación. El departamento cuenta con un mini alberca de unos 50 cms. de profundidad que lo rodea en el frontis y hace que no tengas de que preocuparte a la hora de que los niños quieran disfrutar de un chapuzón. Por último respecto a la atención y coordinacion un especial abrazo y agradecimiento a Andres por sus atenciones y cordialidad. Que si lo recomiendo, en un 100% sin dudas que volveremos!! Gracias katy

Owner Info

BIO: It came as something of a surprise to find ourselves as owners of properties in the Riviera Maya and yet, if we’re honest, we were headed in this direction for some time. For almost 20 years we’ve vacationed in the area at numerous resorts, soon switching to renting homes, once we realized all that we were missing by being stuck at a resort. It is our hope to spend more time in the area as we make our way – slowly – toward retirement, so I have long been on the lookout for a future home.

I began our search in Playa del Carmen and purchased our three-bedroom condo, Vive El Sueno. It offers a beach front, resort-style setting, with a massive pool, and two restaurants, all just a few minutes from the famous Quinta Avenida and all that this vibrant city has to offer. Not long after that, we began looking at Puerto Morelos, and it was love at first sight when I walked into Casa del Sol! My breath was taken away by the view through to the infinity pool and out to the sea. With our own large, extended family, six bedrooms right on the beach in this beautiful town, within walking distance to everything anyone could ever want or need, Casa del Sol was an easy decision.

We are so glad to be able to offer these very distinctive and very different homes for family holidays so that others can also enjoy the beauty of the region. We look forward to welcoming you!
