My Boyfriend and I booked this condo for a week long vacation in Mid November. We were very happy with the unit overall. It looks just as the pictures show. The bedroom is huge and the pillow top king mattress was amazing. What wasn't listed was that the shower in the master bath has a glass wall that looks into the bedroom. This was a great space and had plenty of room. Every two days we received cleaning service and fresh towels. This was nice because with the humidity the towels don't dry out much . There was brand new trundle bed sleeper sofa in the living area (not advertised) which was comfortable and folds out to a full size bed. Cable was provided but stopped working mid trip. Internet was was not provided in the room or by the pool, but was available in the lobby.
The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked for cooking and drinking! It came equipped with everything you could need for cooking or making margaritas and drinks. 5 gallon water dispenser was provided which was nice. New AC units in Living and Bedroom were quiet and worked well.
The location of the unit in the complex was good it has a view off the ocean and sits about 40 yards down the side of the building from the beach. This unit is not in the center of the building and has no view of the pool area. For the price of the unit the location was great! We really enjoyed the relaxed setting and enjoyed being able to walk down to the pool of beach with our own drinks and food. You can get a massage poolside for $30 and hour per person. There were lots of chairs poolside and on the private beach. Friendly security guards made sure only guests used chairs and made the complex feel safe at night. When we were there the restaurant in the building was unoccupied.
The thing that made us not give this a 5 star review was the noise inside the room. In Playa there is one main clubbing street located one block from this complex. Every night the loud music begins around 9pm and goes until 5am. You can hear and bass and rumbling clearly from the bedroom of this unit. Luckily we slept with earplugs every night. The windows had very thick glass but didn't keep all noise out.
Overall we were very happy with our stay and would recommend the unit."

Beautiful, Relaxing Villa with Helpful Staff and Fun Town
"Our unit in Villa Sacbe was perfect all around (the price too!) My girlfriend and I are in our late 20's and we're looking for a unique getaway with a little culture and lots of sun & relaxation. Playa del Carmen was the perfect town for this. Local shops everywhere, long stretches of beachfront lounging, great activities of all different types nearby, bars/restaurants/clubs, AND it was easy/affordable to get there. Villa Sacbe is one collection of 4 built by the same creator who also has a few restaurants close by. This gives you access/discounts to these restaurants and the beach club (just one block down towards the water). You also can use the gym and are provided with a very helpful concierge team that helped us plan our trips to nearby Mayan ruins, Cozumel, rentals, and how to do pretty much anything you want. As for the unit itself and it's owner, we couldn't have imagined anything better! It really is even more beautiful than the pictures. The private hottub on the roof really is just yours along with a secluded deck and an upstairs loft great for siesta naps or kids. The housekeeping service provides you with unlimited clean drinking water and towel service free of charge. The kitchen has everything you need except an oven (although there is a toaster oven). The pool is beautiful, clean, and cool with rarely anyone else in it. There is a group of popular night clubs on the same block and they are loud at night. However the owner took the extra consideration to pave the ceiling under the grass roof to block the noise, and once we were in the bedroom with the door closed it was perfectly quiet. Speaking of, the current owner, Sergio, was more than accommodating for us. We had a small issue with how the payment worked and Sergio was great in keeping communication with any questions we had and even helped us with transportation and getting in contact with the staff on site.
All around, we enjoyed every second of our five night stay thanks to the sunny & cultural town, the beautiful & relaxing villa, and the helpful & accommodating staff. We're coming back the next chance we get!"

"We arrived late at night and had no problems finding the condo or getting situated. Office staff was very helpful, unit was clean and nicely decorated. We loved the pool (we always had it to ourselves), Plank restaurant (office gave free brunch coupon and free drink coupons), secure underground parking. The Gym is an excellent facility. Indigo Beach Club is also a nice resource that's included and close, though the beach is not as nice as Tulum or hotel zone, as there are many wooden boats docked there with rope ties in the water. Proximity to 5th Avenue, pharmacies and medical care, restaurants, Mega and Walmart are all outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this condo again if I go back to Playa del Carmen."
