happy to share a few
GUESTS COMMENTS from past guests of this condo:
Hola Doug and Desiree, Just want to
let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Subo Aventuras.
The condo was perfect for 7 of us (4 adults, 2 teenage boys and a 4
year old). It is beautifully decorated and inviting as
well as being very comfortable. The beds were comfy with
upscale bedding. My favorite place to sit was in one of the
swivel chairs on the patio, looking at the gorgeous view of the
garden and ocean. We had a small problem our first day but the
manager, Ariel, and the maintenance guy were right there to make
sure it was resolved immediately. Subo Aventuras is fantastic
and I highly recommend it. This is our 4th time renting from
Brisa Caribe and it is the 4th time we have received excellent
service and had outstanding accommodations. It is nice to have
confidence that whatever property we rent from Brisa Caribe will be
even better than pictured, immaculately clean and a first class
property. Thanks again for helping make this another amazing
vacation! Carolyn K. August 2019
Doug and Desiree, I can't thank you enough for suggesting
such a beautiful house! Our whole group was so pleased and
absolutely loved our location. We all felt really lucky that
we were able to be in such an amazing spot, it was quiet, peaceful,
beautiful, and the neighbors were all so kind and friendly!
We loved every minute and we were so sad to leave. We are all
pretty well traveled and usually do not return to a place we have
already stayed, however we all would love to come back here
sometime! The house was so clean, and had everything we
needed! We all felt very much at home and comfortable.
All of the information was easily available and accessible.
Also, I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the ease of
planning and booking everything. You both have been
responsive, helpful and professional throughout the whole process!
Especially with the back and forth in the beginning with our deposit
and payment. Thank you for your patience and for working with
us! Also, wanted to let you know we had a great experience
with Jim and Aquanauts! Thank you for the recommendation. They
were so helpful and we did two really great dives with them.
We would have love to have done more but was a little difficult with
our kids! :) Thank you again! We have amazing memories
from such a great trip and hope to return one day soon! Best,
Jennifer B and group, March 2019
This is a great place and we are already looking forward to coming
back as soon as possible!!!!
ONLINE 5 STAR REVIEW: “Beautiful Condo
and Surrounding Area’ The place is beautiful, the surrounding area
too! Plenty of great restaurants around the front end of the
community, a short walk away. We loved our time there! Tulum
ruins, Akumal beach, the Xcaret parks, and Cirque du Soleil all an
easy drive from the condo. Other tour bus adventures picked us
up right at the Catalonia Riviera Maya around the corner, about a 3
minute walk. Condo staff very friendly and helpful whenever we
needed something. Can't wait to go back!
and Desiree, We got back late yesterday and I wanted to send
you an email today to tell you what a great time we had! The
condo was beautiful and the staff onsite was extremely helpful.
The arrangements you helped with, the information on your website
and the vendors you use made everything a breeze and worry free.
Even with a delay in our flight, as soon as exited the airport
everything was very easy - the driver was great, the van was clean,
and the air conditioning was cold :-)!! Each outing you
organized, the driver was prompt (even early) and extremely helpful
and kind. I wanted to let you know - in particular, the guide
at Tulum was exceptional. My parents had been to Tulum
previously but by far, this visit was much more informative.
And, also, the small touches, like cold towels in the van after the
Tulum trip, are all the little things that make a vacation a truly
relaxing week for everyone. The information on your site, as
well as the pre-arrival information, helped so much, especially the
tipping guidelines which include simple notes such as tipping the
person bagging the groceries. The information regarding the
restaurants also was great!! We had some great meals in PA with your
guidance. Thank you for the service that you provide.

ONLINE 5 STAR REVIEW: 'Perfect Week in
PA' We stayed at Casa Subo Aventuras the first week of June.
It was perfect for our family of 4 and a set of grandparents.
The condo is very spacious and extremely clean and comfortable.
The pictures absolutely accurately depict the beauty of the space.
The staff in the building were very responsive and helpful when we
wanted to schedule an additional cleaning, needed water refilled and
when we had a minor problem in the unit. The unit manager
called me at 9:30pm after I sent an non urgent email to let me know
that they could send someone immediately. After assuring him
that we could wait until the morning, they promptly showed up in the
morning and addressed the problem. Outside - be ready to have
morning visitors! The iguanas and the agouti visited the patio
every morning and some afternoons. They were so wonderful to
watch. The lagoon was always calm and warm, with plenty of
fish to enjoy snorkeling. The sandy area and the pool were
immaculately kept with plenty of space to throw the football and
numerous huts which provided shade, if that is what you wanted.
The location of the condo, in my opinion, is ideal. It is a off the
main center and away from the hotels but having a golf cart made
getting around MUCH easier. There are plenty of restaurant
options for lunches and dinners. We never had a bad meal!
We chartered a fishing boat out of the marina and came back with
plenty of fish for the chef to cook while we relaxed. All the
meals we had the chef prepare were AMAZING! The proximity to
Tulum made an early morning visit easy. Having a golf cart
allowed the family to drop my daughter and I off for a dolphin
encounter and then return to watch. I can't say enough about
how easy and convenient the location is. The week went so
quickly and I haven't been able to say that for every vacation we
have been on. A wonderful way to start the summer! Thank
you for sharing your home - it made our first visit to PA so

ONLINE 5 STAR REVIEW: 'Gorgeous Home - Perfect Location'
After weeks of researching vacation destinations in Mexico, we
finally decided on this condo. We couldn't believe our good
fortune when we arrived and saw that the condo was even more amazing
than we'd expected. The decor is stunning, with rich colors
everywhere, artwork, beautiful floor tiles, and ceilings with inlaid
bricks and tiles and recessed lighting. The rooms are very
large, and each bedroom has its own bathroom (the master bath has
the biggest and prettiest shower I've ever seen). The condo
was spotless and very well-maintained. T his is a corner unit with
windows on three sides, so there's a lot of light. And
the view...it hits you the minute you walk in the door. You
look out across your enormous patio with sitting areas and garden to
a sandy beach with palapas and chaise lounges. A lagoon that's
perfect for swimming separates the beach from the rocky shore and
waves. We rarely saw other guests on the beach, so it felt like an
extension of our patio. A room off the patio contains snorkel
gear, rafts, sunscreen, etc. and is adjacent to a "man cave" with
hammock, darts, a gorgeous ocean view, and a 5th bathroom.
Parking is easy...we were always able to park right in front of our
unit. Ariel and Pedro were onsite and able to help with any
issues we had. The location is perfect for
families--Puerto Aventuras is very safe and quiet, with just the
right amount of nightlife (a couple of bars with live music), and
the waterfront restaurants surrounding the marina have outdoor
dining and lights in the trees. You're more likely to meet
other tourists and some ex-pats here than locals, but it's big on
charm. T he town is situated between Playa del Carmen and Tulum and
convenient to both, and there are tons of cenotes nearby (our
favorite was Cenote Cristalino, about 10 minutes south of town).
Or you could just hang out on the patio and watch the waves and feed
the resident iguanas who come by for a handout. That's how we
started and ended every day. Paradise!
Everything was absolutely perfect! The house is just stunning.
The only negative is that we don't own it! We came home with
wonderful memories and stories to tell. What a cool business you're
in that you can provide that! Thank you for an amazing experience
and for all your help. We hope to be in touch in the future.

ONLINE REVIEW: Booked this condo for a family vacation for 6
including one child. So happy to discover that it was
everything it was advertised to be...the photos are all completely
accurate and it's a beautiful condo in every way. The view
from the patio was perfect day/night and was great to have a gated
spot for the little one to play (and watch the iguanas!). The
access to the pool, lagoon and neighboring beach was so easy.
The condo is also very generous with bath towels and beach towels.
Doug and Desiree are fantastic to work with. I had A LOT of
questions and Desiree always responded within hours (or less!.)
We booked airport transfer through them as well and the service was
fantastic. We had one issue come up during our stay and
when I had to call Desiree at 8pm she picked up and couldn't have
been more kind and helpful. Doug was quick to follow up
the next day and everything was resolved quickly and easily.
I would certainly book through Brisa Caribe again - probably this
you Doug and Desiree. We left this morning, locked up and gave the
key to Ariel. We all had a wonderful time and are not looking
forward to heading back to the cold weather. Kevin and I
are hoping to return to Subo Aventuras in April or May with 2 of our
dearest couple friends. We all travel to Cabo or Playa del
Carmen every year at this time but they will love this area and
unit. Ariel the property manager was wonderfully
attentive; as were the entire housekeeping, landscaping, and
maintenance staff. We scheduled Francesca's catering staff to
come in for all our meals for our last 4 days and Luis, the chef,
was amazing. We enjoyed watching him cook and he was kind
enough to try to teach us a little. Thank you again for
coordinating the airport transfer, grocery stop, unit and for
answering all our many questions. Happy New Year!
Kevin and Leighann M
Dear Doug & Desiree, Thank you so much. We had a wonderful time
in Quinta Luna. Everything was great and we felt very safe, our
children as well. I would also like to say thanks to both of
you for a great service and prompt responds, it is valuable when one
is in new environment. All the best, Huld, Jan 2018
5 out of 5 star ONLINE REVIEW: "Gorgeous Setting''
Photos are the tip of the iceberg. We just landed and are already
planning our next stay! Perfect rental for our young family. The
owners have thought of everything!
REVIEW: This condo was gorgeous!! We had a family of 5
and my parents with us and could have fit a whole other family
there! It was very clean and had everything you needed as far
as linens, dishes, appliances...there was even pool toys and snorkel
gear available for us to use. The pool was always quiet..no beach
access but there's a little lagoon the kids enjoyed exploring in.
Just be sure to bring water shoes. I highly recommend fishing with
JCL fishing charter. They will meet you right at the port in
Puerto Aventuras and take you right to the fish. You can have
it cooked and any of the restaurants there...it was the best thing
I've ever tasted!
We had a
wonderful stay :) We will definitely spread the word about
this place, everything was perfect. Thank you for
everything!!! Sam C. August 2017
ONLINE REVIEW: Our family of four stayed in this fantastic
vacation rental for a week. It was a lovely rental and exceeded our
expectations! It was updated and clean. It had everything we could
want. We rented it as a two bedroom and it was so neat that we could
choose the bedrooms that we wanted to use for the week. Doug and
Desiree are absolutely fantastic to work with and are so great at
responding to any questions right away. This was our 2nd stay in
this complex and are looking forward to returning again. Highly
Doug and Desiree: Everything was much
more than what we expected. The pictures of the condo on the
website don’t do it justice. We had a GREAT time!! Ariel and the
staff were very accommodating, courteous, and professional. I can’t
think of anything I would change. We will definitely be in touch for
a future visit. THANK YOU! Dwayne
Hi Doug – we absolutely loved where we stayed
(despite the sickness) and would definitely come back again. I
think Subo Aventuras was my second choice and I am so happy that my
first choice was taken – I couldn’t have asked for a better
property. Thanks so much! Michelle M. April 2017
We had .... Simply a Incredible Time!!! On
Monday we had a small ceremony in the most beautiful spot straight
our from patio where Kellie and i got married. We will forever
remember this spot. The location, accommodations, services were
just amazing. All we could talk about was coming back.. I look
forward to working with you again.We are in akumal for a week . I
will post some good reviews when i get home . Thanks again for
everything it was a pleasure working with you. Cheers, Chris
Thank you for allowing us to stay as such an
awesome place. That unit was by far the nicest I've stayed at
abroad. Everything about the place was great. The scenery, water and
iguanas were the best. I will definitely be contacting you soon
about renting that unit again. Thank you so much!!!!! Keith

ONLINE REVIEW: We just returned from a 10 night stay at Casa Subo
Aventuras. The spaciousness of the indoor and outdoor living space
is very impressive. The decor and art work is beautiful. Each day we
discovered something new!
were 6 people sharing, and there was privacy and space for everyone.
We loved the large kitchen, and then the bar - with it's own wine
fridge and dishwasher! We ate half our meals in, and ventured to
town for the others. Enjoyed both experiences equally. It was very
convenient to move from the terrace, to the beach,, to the pool. The
lagoon was not conducive to swimming at this time, but we could
stroll over to the beach at the all-inclusive for ocean swimming and
snorkeling. Beds were great, bathrooms good. We required some
plumbing work done, but the administration was right on it. We were
very pleased with the service. Staying at this condo was like having
your own private villa. Very clean, modern, well-equipped. Quiet. I
would go back
Thank you Doug and Desiree. We enjoyed our vacation immensely, and
the beautiful condo on the ocean certainly added to the stay. We
were very impressed with the supplies in the condo. One thing that
was lacking was serving bowls for salads, tortilla chips etc. But
really, not much else. Ariel and staff were very helpful whenever we
needed assistance. There were a couple of plumbing issues, but they
were dealt with. We loved having all the furniture on the terrace,
and lived out there a great amount of the time! We would definitely
be confident in renting this unit, or others that are in your
inventory, again. Back to reality now. Debbie Mac. Feb
Doug and Desiree! Thank you so much for helping us coordinate
this great trip! We had an absolutely wonderful time at the
condo and in the Puerto Aventuras area! The condo was
beautiful and clean and perfect for our family of 6. We loved
every minute of it! The staff was very helpful and
attentive. Ariel was great with helping us out with various things
and the cleaning staff was very good too. The condo area was so
lovely. The kids loved the pool and lagoon area, as well as the
beach closest to the condo. The other hotel beaches nearby were
pretty rocky. Our
transportation to and from the airport was excellent as well.
We really had a fantastic
trip and will likely be back. Thanks again, and Happy New
Year!!! Angie & Family, New Year's 2016
We had a lovely stay. The condo met
all our needs. The Brisa Caribe management was very helpful.
They answered all questions quickly. I would definitely rent
from your company again. We can't wait to return to the area.
Everyone was friendly the beach was beautiful. N. Roy,
ONLINE REVIEW: We arrived in Puerto Aventuras at the Casa Subo
Aventuras, Quinta Luna 007 condo - our first impression was WOW!
This impressively spacious condo turned out to be even better than
advertised. It was very clean, very nicely furnished with over
sized rooms, an exceptionally large, private patio which was just
steps to the pool, the beach, the lagoon, and the ocean. There were
plenty of chairs to lounge around making it very comfortable for all
of us. The grounds outside were immaculate and being it was low
season, our family felt we had the whole area to ourselves so it was
incredibly quiet and very relaxing. The staff were friendly and
more importantly on site and available. All the amenities in the
charming little resort town of Puerto Aventuras are very close by.
There was adequate parking and it was conveniently located right
outside the door. We very much enjoyed our stay. Having traveled
to the Mayan Riviera region many times over the years, we can
honestly say that this unit was ideal for our family vacation and
made our trip that much more memorable. We could not be happier
with our experience and we were thoroughly impressed with Brisa
Caribe, Doug and his management company. We would highly recommend
their services and properties. They were incredibly thorough,
courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. The service overall was
outstanding and we would not hesitate to book another vacation with
Doug and his rental management company. Thank you Doug and Desiree!

Hi Doug, The house was amazing. We spent
unforgettable moments there. We will return soon
for sure Thank you very much for your attention.
Debora, July 2015
Thanks so much… we will book again with you.
Loved everything about the property~ will hopefully get back there
next May! Diane K. June 2015
Thank you so
much for the wonderful stay. Please pass a word to the owners that
they have a lovely home and our family of 6 loved that they shared
their paradise with us. We hope to return someday. This was one of
the more luxurious vrbo homes we have stayed in so it was really a
treat for us. Thank you also for accommodating a late checkout. We
had every intention to leave at 11 AM, but I wanted to get the last
load of dishes in and towels in dryer. We left at 11:30 and it was
perfect timing to get rental car returned and stand in the numerous
airport lines for our flight at 4. We left the keys on the bar and
locked up all except for the back sliding door which is the one left
open for us the night we arrived. We met a maintenance man who said
it would be fine that way until Ariel arrives the next day, although
I presumed a housekeeper was coming just after we left. Thank you
Debbie T. April 2015
We had a great time and
everything was exactly how it was represented. Arial was great and
the few minor things we asked him about. We will very likely be
back. Thanks. Brent E. March 2015
Dear Doug, We enjoyed the
condo you found for us in Puerto Aventuras! The 007 unit at
Quinta Luna was skilfully designed and furnished - comfortable as
well as beautiful. The location was stunning, and we spent
many happy hours in the pool and the lagoon, as well as basking in
the sun and reading in the private garden. We particularly
enjoyed the art and other personal touches. The staff on-site
were attentive to all of our needs. We also appreciated the
transportation and you arranged for us to and from Cancun. We
would love to rent this unit again next spring. Thank you for
all of your help. Sincerely Joseph & Judy M.
