We stayed at Villas Marlin in Unit 328 with our 3 college age sons over Christmas week. It worked out perfectly for us. The location is right on the beach with 3 pools overlooking the beach. We never had a problem finding lounge chairs. Alvin with Oracle Villas and Tours arranged for our airport transportation and he was waiting for...

We stayed two weeks in Cancun at Villas Marlin. It was clean and beautiful and Alvin Harrison and his staff went above and beyond for us. The second day we were there we had a big leak in our condo. Alvin addressed it right away and he moved us to one of the beautiful penthouses while they fixed the problem....

Villas Marlin was a nice place to stay if you already familiar with Cancun and just need a place to sleep, shower, and leave your belongings. There is no front desk, reception area like you would get in a hotel and the guards at the gate speak very little English and are not much help. It is a nice private...

OracleV7T, Owner/Manger at Villas Marlin, responded to this review

Villas Marlin is a condominium complex with a combination of absentee and "on site" owner/operators renting properties. Renting from an "absentee" owner, unfortunately, will produce the experience detailed in the above review. However renting a unit with an onsite representative solves all of the issues detailed in the review. There are two companies with "on site" representatives renting condos in...

As a family with two teens, we have rented condos in Hawaii and in Cabo San Lucas. My expectations are fairly high because we have had such good luck before. This time was different. The pictures on the website make the unit look really great, better than it actually is. We were there in July and ridicules things were happening...

First off, I would like to apologize to this client for any inconvenience our repair people may have caused. We work hard to ensure every guest has a pleasant and trouble free experience....I believe all of our other reviews speak for themselves. However, I do feel there are a few overstatements and extenuating circumstances that should be pointed out. Villa...

I knew about Villas Marlin for years (great complex/great location) but was hesitant to rent an apt here because in the past I've read mixed reviews and basically it depended on who the reviewers rented from. Then recently I checked the reviews again and kept reading great things about Alvin at Oracle Villas. Well we rented an apartment in April...

For our first trip to Cancun we wanted to stay in a safe and clean place with beautiful views. We got all three! We stayed in Unit 122, very clean and spacious, with the most beautiful views.

We stayed in 511 from 2/28/9-3/7/9. It has been my experience that in resort locations there is a center of noise, excitement, dust and activity. While the "center of the action" may appeal to some, I have always sought the advantage of a "volume control" via being a little distance away. In Cancun the "elbow of the 7" of the...
