  • The perfect place to stay for small families and everybody else! BEST value for money!!!

    "We loved the place from the first second on. Even before staying there it was already the perfect vacation. Tracey, the owner, is sooo helpful, patient (we've had quite a view questions beforehand :-)) and friendly and answered almost within minutes. She had lots of tips and tricks finding the best and cheapest stuff in playa. Restaurants, car-rentals, groceries, activities, day trips, etc. We saved huge money with all of her tips! We traveled the first time with our two little kids and had some concerns how it would be. But we've had certainly the best time there with the kids. They loved the (clean) pool and the fact, that the beautiful beach was just a few minutes away. Actually the location is perfect. Almost everything is in good walking distance. It's just half a block away from 5th avenue, not loud ad all, though... The condo itself was very clean and the kitchen facilities perfect for cooking our own stuff. It comes with everything you need: Fly screen (very important :-)), (beach)towels, washing machine (also very important with kids :-)), beach chairs, cooler, books, wifi, air condition...Almost like at home. We loved the deck with the direct access to the pool. Especially in the evening when there was a nice breeze we loved to sit out there having dinner and some drinks. The property manager also was very helpful and friendly. We also felt very safe and didn't have any bad experiences. But actually the best thing was by far the price. You can't find something similar for that price...!!! So the far trip all the way from Germany was certainly worth it and we recommend the condo not just for young families but also for everybody else. Thanks for the best family trip in paradise!!!"

  • Porto Playa is great for everyone!

    "My husband and I traveled to Playa del Carmen in March and stayed at this unit. First of all, I cannot write this review without first touching on how amazing Playa del Carmen is. It is the perfect vacation for everyone. It has so much to offer - beautiful beaches, adventures to ruins and jungle ziplines, wonderful shops, delicious restaurants and easy access to one of the top rated snorkeling sites in the world in Cozemel!! And Porto Playa is in the middle of it all. The location is ideal - a five minute walk gets you to the beach, the clubs, the food and shops, but also provides enough distance for a peaceful retreat when returning to your condo. The staff is unbelievably attentive and the grounds are pristine. This unit is on the second floor and has a beautiful view of the pool and is the right height to be surrounded by the wonderfully landscaped courtyard. The cool breeze the balcony gets provides a perfect spot for enjoying coffee in the morning and cocktails at night! We have nothing but great things to say about Porto Playa and are already planning our return trip with some friends!"

  • very pleased.

    "beautiful condo, beautiful beach and a great restaurant next door"fusion". a couple of normal hiccups along the way were taken care of right away. Edith from the rental company was fantastic and took care of any needs or concerns we had. housekeeping, security and the boys on the beach were great not to mention the servers from fusion serving us on the beach! My only complaint( which is just more of an annoyance) was the pushy drug dealers on 5th avenue. trying to enjoy a relaxing walk with my wife while shopping became an annoying chore. I'm not kidding when I tell you I was asked every ten steps to buy drugs! once you just chock it up as another item, like crafts or jewelry that they're trying to sell, it's not the end of the world. Me and my wife just decided to do our shopping early in the morning and stay clear of 5th ave at night."

  • Wonderful location with "Mexican" flavor

    "We spent 4 days at Palma Cocos, what a wonderful condo! It looks very quaint, like old Mexico with tiles and adobe. The greatest part is the location, only a block from 5th ave and 5 minutes from the beach. And its QUIET at night! Some friends of ours stayed on the beach near Calle 14, and were kept up by loud music and talking all night. The apartment is a little dated, but cute and clean. There are lots of movies and DVD's. The pool on the roof is beautiful, with great night views. Jose the caretaker is very helpful. We had a great time there, can't wait to go back! Brent the owner sent a nice info packet with all the particulars about the apartment and area."
