  • Perfect from Beginning until Return!!

    "Terry is very helpful in all respects of planning the perfect vacation at her condo. The condo is everything and more than the photos depict, Perfect location on the beach with beautiful Caribbean sea views. Large balcony including a grill for outdoor cooking, two large bedrooms with king beds, two beautiful bathrooms and full working kitchen. It is close to everything you would need, Groceries, restaurants, ferry, 5th Avenue. Staff is terrific, friendly and helpful, grounds are immaculate and always felt safe. Loved the extras, beach chairs, cooler for the beach, kids sand toys, boogie board. We have stayed in different places in Riviera Maya and PDC over the past years and this was the BEST!! Perfect for families and couples. We all were sad to leave!!!"

  • 3rd Time's A Charm!! So Were The Other 2, By The Way!!

    "Just spent a relaxing week at the Sandcastle condo, my 3rd stay there over the years. I keep returning because the place just cannot be beat. The Elements are very well maintained & constantly being upgraded. They added a second outdoor jacuzzi since my last stay. The location is perfect for my taste. Close to downtown PDC (a short walk or a 5 minute taxi ride), but far enough away to be quiet & tranquil. The unit itself has to die for views & is clean & well appointed. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves...very relaxing!! We had massages at the private beach club, took hikes & swam in the pool & ocean. I enjoy staying at condos because there is plenty of room & you have your own kitchen. I highly recommend The Sandcastle!!"

  • A idden Gem

    "my group of 10 found Casa Alcazar to be everything we hoped it would be and more. From the transportation to the private chef to the home cooked meals, this was a great place for a home base in Playa Del Carmen. Ulla was a fantastic hostess and took care of any needs our group requested. we had some golfers in the group and the Hard Rock Golf Course was a 3 wood away and with the owners connections, we were able to play at an all inclusive golf course for $60 a day.What an added bonus! The reef club was next door and the main town was only a 15 minute walk down the beach. We had a small wedding reception with a private chef (Paco) that was as good as being prepared at a 5 star restaurant. I would recommend this property to any type group except maybe groups with small children because of stairs and balconies. We felt safe and secure"

    "Book it! Now! It took us so long to decide on the type of place we were going to stay on our vacation. Resort? Cot? Who knows? There are so many options, which is a good thing, but I get overwhelmed. We decided that an all inclusive was not for us, as we are not drinkers and like to do things on our own schedule. The idea of having liquor dispensers attached to the wall was a red flag. A private condo rental was the ticket. We needed a place with three bedrooms as we'd be with my mother in law, sister-in-law & her bf, the bride, me and our 5 year old son. When we stumbled upon this property online, the wife and I both thought it was too good to be true. This fit the bill, perfectly. There are two beds in each room. We grabbed the master suite which has the only view of the ocean. The other two rooms are nice, but they overlook the outside walkway. Which is fine, as you'll be on vacation and shouldn't be spending time in your room, right? Right! But it's nice sleeping with the window open and hearing the ocean. Two of the rooms have lovely sinks/toilet/shower and there's a main bathroom adjacent to the living room area. The furniture and amenities are beautiful. There are some novels in the bookcase to read as well as some in the "lobby" of the condominium, where you can also make reservations for trips, get info about restaurants and such. We were there the final week in January, so the pool was a little chilly for us, but our 5 year old, like all 5 year olds, didn't care a lick. There's a great shallow/wading area where he could literally frolic while we vegetated in the lounges. Maybe they heat the pool later or it doesn't need heating. No matter. Why swim in the pool when there's the beautiful ocean 10 feet away? We over-packed a bit. There's a washer/dryer in the unit, so we didn't need to pack as many clothes as we did. The room has plenty of soft, enormous, luxurious towels for taking to the beach/pool. There's also a fully appointed kitchen with stove/fridge/microwave. Over two coffee makers! And a dispenser for the 5gallon bottles of water you are supplied with. **note** make sure you get someone to hold the base of that thing when you change the bottle or you'll be mopping the floor :) As mentioned, it's a short walk into town. There's a mall right at the entrance. I gringo'd out and had Starbucks every morning. Right down 10th are a plethora of restaurants with terrific tacos for little money. They'll fill you up. I'm out of room!"
