  • Fabulous Property!!!

    "We stayed very comfortably for a week at this lovely condo and never got tired of the views we got to wake up to. The weather was hot so we spent alot of time relaxing on the resort loungers on the beach where the breeze kept us cool. From there we would just wade out into that gorgeous turquoise water to hang out and chat while the kids played nearby. The resort staff were friendly, fun and helpful; they got us set up with tons of towels everyday and fins for snorkeling at Akumal, a nearby town, where they take their turtle conservation very seriously. We also traveled down to tour the ruins and town at Tulum which is an easy hop from the condo as well! We walked into town and had some really nice dinners in Playa every night of our stay. The condo was well set up to cook in which we did for breakfasts and lunch; there are many large grocery stores in town or street vendors with food carts which was all really convienent. The kids had a blast playing beach volleyball at the resort and pool games with other guests; everyone seemed to be enjoying their holiday at Fishermans! We certainly did and would highly recommend the condo and resort to anyone considering staying in the area."

  • Beautiful condo

    "My family of 5 stayed here last July for 10 days. I chose it because it appeared well appointed and that is important to me. It was very tastefully decorated. There was plenty of space for our entire family. The master bed was extremely comfortable. The condo itself, the grounds, and the gated community of playacar is just gorgeous. There are a few things that could have been improved upon. One, is that I think with such a spacious rooftop deck, a BBQ and perhaps a jacuzzi should be put in place in order to better enjoy relaxing dinners and time at the condo. Without these features, I'm sorry to say we didn't spend even one minute up on the deck. Pity too, seems like a great space that could be better utilized. Another suggestion is that a nice rug should be placed underneath the dining room area for the chairs. They did scrape loudly against the marble floor when moved which caused the downstairs neighbor to complain about us twice. We are not loud people. We tried our best to be respectful but the combination of the marble floors made it difficult and heavy dining chairs made it difficult. One other thing I will point out, although this is NO fault of the owner, is that the "10-30 minute" walk into town during the summer is brutal!!! I'm someone who enjoys an evening stroll so I was not put off by this idea at all. I was also aware that july would mean it would be very hot and humid. I truly didn't think this would bother me (it was 114 degrees when I left my home). However, I did not anticipate just how hot and humid this walk would be. It seemed to take forever. We'd then arrive sweaty to an open air resataurant (with no AC) to sweat some more, then, have the long walk back home. The same is true for beach access to the public beach. At least once you're there, you can cool off in the water. If you're there in the summer months, I highly recommend a rental car or getting taxies whe going into town or to the beach. We did make use of the beach chairs at the Reef club one day and bought the all inclusive package there another day which was great. All in all, I would most definitely stay here again as long as it wasn't during summer time. During summer, I'd unfortunately have to choose somewhere closer to restaurants with a more convenient beach access. But, if you're planning to be there in fall, winter, or spring, I can't imagine a nicer home with a better value."

  • January 2015 getaway

    "The accommodations were spacious and beautiful. The maid service was wonderful, and the transport to and from the airport was an inexpensive bonus. The location right on the beach, and close to the shopping district was incredible. The front desk had tour packages and transportation to all the main attractions around the area. The condo was everything we expected, except it needs some maintenance, as the washing machine leaked continually, and was a huge slipping hazard!!!! My husband slipped on the wet floor, and almost broke his toe. We had to put a towel down on the floor to soak up the water, and we had to replace it everyday. The toaster was broken, and we not only had to hold the button down to for it to work, but also turn the toast to cook on the other side. The microwave above the counter top stove did not work. I would have given the rental 5 stars if it were not for the maintenance issues. Despite all we had a wonderful stay, and we would definitely consider renting the property again!!!"

  • A Dream Rental in Playa!!!

    "Where do I begin?! Mark and Laurie have such a wonderful home and we felt immediately like it was our own. The Moskito property management team are consummate professionals and were on-hand for questions, suggestions, etc. throughout our entire stay. The location is perfect; close walk to a public beach with a pretty private feel which was really nice. Similarly close walk to 5th Avenue with an endless array of shops, restaurants, bars, and other entertainment options. The information binder that Laurie created and left in the condo for our reference was so painstakingly maintained that we really were never at a loss for suggestions on things to do, places to see, etc. We can't wait to come back and continue exploring all of the stuff we didn't get to during our short 1-week stay! I have already recommended the Rosa Blanca condo to a few friends planning their own vacations and after looking at our pictures and the cozy (yet spacious) accommodations, they are very excited to book their own trips! One suggestion: definitely try and venture off of 5th Avenue; we found so much delicious food on 10th Avenue and also were pleasantly surprised at how much cheaper gifts are "off the strip". Check out Manne's Biergarten on Calle 4 Norte between 10th and 15th Avenues; nice little back patio area to enjoy drinks! Laurie was so pleasant to work with (as was Laura with Moskito), that it really took ALL of the stress out of vacation planning. We cannot wait to return to Playa and look forward to enjoying the condo again! Also, we made a trip to Tulum for a couple of days while friends stayed behind in the condo and got engaged! So, the Rosa Blanca condo will always have a special place in our hearts and memories. Thanks again, Laurie and Mark!"
