Pure Mareazul is not an all inclusive resort and the topic was posted in the AI area. So perhaps that is the reason why no one has commented. I will move the thread to the General area...

I live at Mareazul and if you are coming on vacation and expect resort amenities I highly recommend DO NOT STAY HERE! There is no pool bar or restaurant. We closed it because of theft by the developer. There are no phones in the units. No room service. Very hard to get a taxi. Soooo many better places to stay. The property itself is amazing. I absolutely love living here but in no way would I enjoy staying here for vacation.

I also recommend renting from one of the owners. The remaining units at Mareazul are being sold which means Pure Mareazul will be gone. Private message me and I can give you plenty of options for rental units that are better furnished. Have satellite TV and you will be guaranteed a certain unit. Pure Mareazul is owned by the developer and I have seen many problems with the guests not receiving what was promised.

Sorry. The developer has sold all of his remaining units. I am not sure if Pure will be around when you travel. Check out North American Standards rentals as they have many privately owned units.

I personally would trust info from someone onsite and there full time vs. Booking.com. They have a pretty terrible track record, should you read their reviews..including a 1 star rating with Consumer Affairs.

Sounds like you were given valuable info only to ignore it.

Again, they may have a side deal with the new owners but the info is all units, including the Pure units, have been sold. If you go to the Mareazul sales offices and inquire about purchasing a unit they will tell you its sold out. So knowing this developer he may take the money and not honor the reservations. If you want to stay here the safest way is to go through one of the property management companies that deal with the private owners. Like I said I believe North American STandard has a few here.
