Susan, the trip was FABULOUS!! Your unit is wonderful. Such a perfect spot, and so glad we were beachfront. It made a huge difference and was so incredibly convenient. Matter of fact, we're already trying to plan our return visit! Thank you for making the planning process so easy. Start to finish, it was a wonderful trip! Karen

Absolutely Beautiful FIVE STARS
Our stay was great! The condo is absolutely beautiful and in our opinion, the best unit in the complex. The property management and Luna Encantada staff were wonderful and attentive and it was a big bonus to have yoga and massage right next door. We found the organic market and got breakfast and snacks for the condo. We only left the "compound" to have dinner, it was so perfect.Thank you so much for a wonderful, relaxing vacation.

Hi Susan, We ended up meeting your husband on our last day. I passed along to him how incredibly happy we were with your villa. The condition and location of the villa were everything that you had advertised, and more. We had an absolutely fabulous vacation and would highly recommend your villa to anyone!

Everything was wonderful. The weather was perfect. The sand was white. The margaritas at Fusion were terrific. We have no complaints. Your place is fantastic. We will come back again because its the best place on the beach. You can't beat it. We really will be back. Count on it. Thanks a million.

My Family and I spent part of our vacation in Play del Carmen, the condo is very well furnished and the maid service was convenience and never felt them.The view from the balcony is second to none. You open the window and there you are. The famous 5th Avenue, where the action, is steps away. If we plan to visit Playa Del Carmen again, we will defiantly stay in the same apartment.

Best Spot in Playa!
Best Spot in Playa!
What a great condo! You couldn't be more beachfront than here, and the Luna Encantada complex is one of the few places in Playa that doesn't have a ton of boats anchored to the beach. The decor is beautiful, and the furniture is super comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a full meal with all of the appliances you'd find in your own kitchen. The AC was nice and cold, which is not always the case with rentals in Playa. Another plus is Fusion Restaurant next door. A waiter from Fusion will bring you food and drinks to the beach or the pool! Try the mango margarita. It might be my favorite drink in the world. The staff is nice, and the rental company had a representative come by every other day to check in and make sure we didn't need anything. There is security on site at all times, which is nice, even with Playa being as safe as it is. I will never stay anywhere else!

Our stay here was one of our best vacations ever. The unit is fantastic and the location is unbeatable. The views of the ocean from the balcony are amazing, and the apartment has the best access to the pool and beach while still being private. The apartment was outfitted extremely well and we had everything we needed or prepare our own meals and drinks if we wanted. The Fusion restaurant is directly next door to the complex, and they had the best frozen drinks and food of anywhere we found.....very convenient. 5th Ave is also very close, so great access to shopping and dining. There's also a small grocery store two blocks away for small items, and Walmart is an easy taxi drive for larger grocery purchases. Susan couldn't have been easier to work with and ensured our trip was great. She also set up transportation which was very reliable.......Susan is great! She also has a very informative guidebook in the unit that is full of great tips. One thing I highly recommend - use the snorkel shop (check out their website) for a snorkel trip. Affordable, great set up, and the highlight of our trip. This is a great vacation spot and the very best place to stay based on the units and location. Can't recommend enough, although I hope it is a available for our next vacation :)

We had the most amazing trip while staying at the Luna Encantada Condos. Susan Mattingly provided us with incredible service and made our stay care-free. Our room in A1 was to die for. The incredible size of the condo not to mention the astonishing ocean view was absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend a stay at this beautiful resort.
