Recent Playa del Carmen reviews

  • Fantastic, spacious, perfect location

    "Barbara's condo in Bosque de los Aluxes was exactly what we needed. I traveled there for a week in early April with my wife, brother and his girlfriend (all of us late 20s/early 30s), and we all agreed that we'd go back in a heartbeat. If you've been to Playa, you know that 5th Ave has a lot to offer, but also can be loud/overwhelming/annoying at times. Barbara's condo is situated at the northern end of 5th where it is much more chill, but is still a stone's throw from both Mamita's/Kool beach clubs and all of the restaurants you've probably read about elsewhere. As for the inside of the property itself - it's fantastic. Both beds are king sized and really comfortable, the room sizes/layouts are identical with great walk-in showers. The view outside is fantastic - I at first thought that the rooftop was a shared space (like a rooftop in NYC), but it's all yours when staying there. The pool was very refreshing to hop in first thing in the morning or after the beach, but it's not something you'll want to spend all day in since it's about the size of a large hot tub. The kitchen had everything we needed (including lots of spices), and we used it several times for dinner and breakfast. The only glitch in our stay is that the AC didn't work at first, but after emailing the property management company they sent someone out to repair it within an hour. (Quick side note - we ended up renting a car, and there was a place nearby that we walked to without a reservation...very easy process. I was a little nervous given that it was a foreign company, we had a small language barrier, and we didn't use GPS, but it went totally fine. We visited Tulum and a fantastic Monkey Sanctuary a few miles away from the ruins). Finally, even though Barbara goes through a property management company, she made sure to add her personal touch throughout the stay and offered several recommendations for places to eat/visit/shop."

  • A little slice of heaven....

    "My wife and I were lucky enough to visit Arena Blanca and stay for 1 week November 2013, and I can't express how fantastic our stay was. The location was perfect (close enough to easily access all the fun 5th and the beach had to offer, but far enough that we never once heard the thumping base from the clubs when we were ready to relax/sleep). The view from the terrace was spectacular, the grounds were immaculate, and the unit was tasteful and well-appointed. We miss Playa already!"

  • The perfect place to stay for small families and everybody else! BEST value for money!!!

    "We loved the place from the first second on. Even before staying there it was already the perfect vacation. Tracey, the owner, is sooo helpful, patient (we've had quite a view questions beforehand :-)) and friendly and answered almost within minutes. She had lots of tips and tricks finding the best and cheapest stuff in playa. Restaurants, car-rentals, groceries, activities, day trips, etc. We saved huge money with all of her tips! We traveled the first time with our two little kids and had some concerns how it would be. But we've had certainly the best time there with the kids. They loved the (clean) pool and the fact, that the beautiful beach was just a few minutes away. Actually the location is perfect. Almost everything is in good walking distance. It's just half a block away from 5th avenue, not loud ad all, though... The condo itself was very clean and the kitchen facilities perfect for cooking our own stuff. It comes with everything you need: Fly screen (very important :-)), (beach)towels, washing machine (also very important with kids :-)), beach chairs, cooler, books, wifi, air condition...Almost like at home. We loved the deck with the direct access to the pool. Especially in the evening when there was a nice breeze we loved to sit out there having dinner and some drinks. The property manager also was very helpful and friendly. We also felt very safe and didn't have any bad experiences. But actually the best thing was by far the price. You can't find something similar for that price...!!! So the far trip all the way from Germany was certainly worth it and we recommend the condo not just for young families but also for everybody else. Thanks for the best family trip in paradise!!!"
