  • Very hard to beat

    "I will get the 'negatives' out of the way first. The porch is quite small but good enough for coffee or a quiet drink for 2. However, with two pool areas, including a fantastic infinity pool with great views, a porch with sun-beds is not necessary. The infinity pool and roof area is truly amazing and very relaxing. We only had a 'crowd' one day when a family with teenagers and friends were there. Otherwise it was almost private. The other slight negative is that we were not told that the restaurant attached to the property had delivery service to the roof top pool. I think that adding a sign (plus maybe a direct phone connection) would enhance the experience. We brought our own drinks and snacks so it was no big deal but we probably would have ordered lunch a few times. The condo itself is very large and well appointed. Bedroom has a 'walk-in' closet area with ironing board and iron. Bathroom is very spacious and living area and kitchen are excellent. For two people, they provided four bath towels and four beach towels and, for an extra fee, these can be changed (along with a full cleaning service) at midweek. The giant water container lasted the full 2 weeks we were there. Satellite TV has lots of channels and they provided a list of which were available in English. Strangely, no news channel in English but with fast wi-fi service we had enough news available on-line. ESPN was available so I got to see the Open Golf! They also provided beach chairs and an umbrella, plus a boogie board (which remained in the closet!). The beach is really only steps away and is the best beach area in Playa. Not eroded at all, unlike the southern beach which is getting quite narrow. The beach clubs were a tad pricey, so we just used the chairs and went to a couple of the clubs just for lunch. The area is perfect. This was our 7th trip to PDC and we have always stayed at around Calle 10-12. Pueblito is on Calle 38. There are no less than 9 restaurants and cafes with a 2 minute walk between the condo and 5th Avenue. We tried 5 of them (having eaten at some of the others on previous trips) and all were excellent and great value. This side of 5th, north of Av. Constitutientes (sp?) is relatively quiet compared to the south end but is well provided with bars, restaurants and shops. This will be our go to place for the next few trips and, if we have extra guests, we may try one of the condos with a roof top private lounge area and plunge pool. Super place."

  • Great Location, Clean Comfortable unit.

    "Pros: -Gorgeous, clean, modern Unit -Comfortable Bed -Great Location -Oceanside Pool -Not overly crowded Cons -Noise (bass) can be heard all night from clubs. -No bathroom by pool -No wifi in room 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."

  • Best girl getaway ever!

    "Our trip included 5 women all seeking a stress-free vacation. The amenities at Porta Playa exceeded our expectations! We were centrally located, a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach, the fabulous restaurants and the shopping along 5th Avenue. Our condo was immaculate, well supplied and had a beautiful view of the pools and the courtyard lush with foliage. We walked each night to fabulous restaurants where our meals surpassed many here at home. There was always friendly staff available to answer our questions and they were very attentive to our needs. The entire trip was fabulous and we are already planning our next trip to Porta Playa, before this "best kept secret" is discovered. It was truly a trip of a lifetime!"

  • Well maintained Property, Can't beat the location.

    "Stayed for 5 nights. Everything was perfect starting with the location and the views from the balcony. We ate all our dinners out on the outdoor dining table! The patio jacuzzi was a real blessing. There were only 2 things we would have improved on our experience. 1) the directions should make it more clear that the guards from the property entrance need to accompany you your first time in order to let you into the building. 2) the AC stopped working mysteriously on the 5th night. It was after we had all fallen asleep that we wove up in a sweat. We didn't call anyone as it was only a few hours till we had to catch a flight. Having said that, our stay overall was most pleasant. Carla was a real resource in giving us all the info we needed and hooking us up with local phones. We also got water delivered as per our needs."
