"We chose Taninah for our wedding because it was so unique & private (how often do you get to rent an entire resort?!) We had a diverse group from grandparents to a 4 month old and in between with various comfort and budget levels. It was eco-luxury. Each cabana had a full bathroom with spa-like walk-in showers. Touring the place when we arrived was one delight after the other.
The staff was magic - invisible unless you needed anything. We would be hanging out & the mosquito nets were drawn, right next to me without me ever seeing them! I never caught them doing it although it was every night. But I never had trouble finding someone if I ever needed anything.
There are a few drawbacks - the biggest is not being directly on the beach and I was really worried about that because I *love* the beach. But, having your own private underground swimming grotto with water slide trumped the beach. Besides, we took a quick ride over to the beach two days- that was enough. The other drawback is that the food is served sort of family style - everyone gets essentially the same meal - in case you have any super finicky foodies. They were super accomodating about preferences - replacing seafood with chicken or even egg-less chocolate cake for the ones who didn't like eggs! Most of the food was very good and some was fantastic but if you're looking for every meal to be 5-star with adjectives on all your ingredients, you won't be happy. You do get to pick your menu (coconut shrimp was unbelievable). And daily fresh guacamole in the afternoon! Lastly, the resort is very eco-friendly. I actually loved this aspect but my convenience-trumps-all sis did notice some things, like the no resort-wide wifi (it was only at the main cabana) or composting toilet. I never noticed anything.
We chose Taninah as a splurge but it turned out to be very economical. Everyone stayed in their own spacious very private cabana, not a little hotel room. Anything we needed (including the alcohol), the staff got for us at Sam's Club or the grocery store, not resort prices. In the end, we spent much less (maybe half) than if we had gone to a typical resort (& we SEARCHED but never found one that met everyone's needs and budget). Taninah was the only one that was luxurious, economical, and convenient for families (no lugging gear when they move from trampoline to pool to playroom!).
Great place to bond - enough privacy to have your space but also spend time together.
GO! You won't regret it!"

"This was our first trip to Playa Del Carmen and it is now my absolute favorite place in Mexico. The condo was clean, comfortable and had all of the amenities you could want. Gary, the property manager was also quite helpful with information. The pictures on the web are very accurate; the place is as beautiful as they look. There are two tennis courts (with lights) right across the street which we loved. Very close to the main street with tons of great restaurants and shops. The rooftop pool was like having our own private pool; we only saw two other people the entire 8 days we were there. The beach is also convenient. It was truly a perfect vacation for us and we will return for sure! The Owner was a pleasure to work with and she made everything easy with the charges, deposits, etc. I highly recommend this condo for your vacation; you will not be disappointed."

"We had a wonderful time at this property. The owner, Joe, was so good to work with...responsive, helpful, informative, etc. Our family of 4 children had a blast at the pool and on the beach. We walked to Walmart to stock the fridge. We ate out every evening on 5th Avenue and found a few excellent local restaurants just off of 5th Avenue. No need to rent a car - everything is within walking distance. We grabbed taxis for Tulum, Xplor, and other sight seeing locations. This is the perfect location for the family. We recommend this location to anyone wanting a quiet get away that is 50 yards away from the bustling night life. We will definitely come back!"

"We stayed here for a week, we were a family of 4. The house is nicely updated with a nice modern kitchen(minus the dishwasher), and updated bathrooms. The condo is pretty spacious for 4 people. We loved the jellyfish lamps by the dining table ( we went shopping for one after we saw it) and the general décor of the condo.
We had the swimming pool for ourselves whenever needed, we saw maintenance staff clean the pool every morning( and I think a thorough surface cleaning once a week). I didn't see anyone else use the pool, except perhaps on the first day.
Jeanette(the owner) is a great person to work with. We somewhat arrived earlier than the usual check-in time and we were accommodated although this was peak season, and the condo just got vacant from the previous renters.
We rented a car, so we covered a lot of attractions/activities during our 7 day stay( so we used the condo mostly only during the early mornings & evenings), with only one entire evening spent at playa del Carmen for shopping & souvenirs( we walked about 20 mins to 5th ave).
The only nice to have would have been a dishwasher in the kitchen( we had breakfast each of the 7 days at the condo); and may be update the leather sofas in the near future - they are beginning to show their age, but this is really small stuff compared to the overall experience. Highly recommend!"
