  • Amazing Vacation

    "Our stay at the Villa Stella Del Mar was fantastic. The owner, Francesca, was easy to communicate with and she answered all our questions before we arrived in Playa. Sergio, the guest services representative attended to our every need including locating and arranging tours and pick up from the airport. Cindy, the housekeeper, did a fabulous job as well. The house was clean, well equipped, and ideally located on a quiet and peaceful street that was a mere 15 minute walk to 5th Ave restaurants, bars, etc. and a 5 minute walk to the Reef Playacar Resort and the beach. Having access to the Reef was an excellent bonus. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us and the washer and dryer came in handy. Would definitely recommend this rental."

  • "This condo is IN downtown Playa del Carmen! It is so convenient! Its very near all the shopping and SO CLOSE to the beautiful beach. The lighthouse is just a stone's throw away! There are so many dive shops very close to the condo as well and all willing to pick you up! The condo is immaculate and the owner was so friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely come back to this property! Thank you SO MUCH for this experience! My favorite part of this vacation was being able to see all the different local artists' work in the nearby shops (I came home spending nearly $200! on artwork alone!) and also the diving was very good!"

  • Playa Del Carmen has beautiful beaches, great restaurants, international tourists & Condo Belmar!

    "Luna Maya is a well-maintained condominium complex at the north end of 5th Ave on 46 street. It was a very quiet part of town compared to the south end. (During the holidays, it was a peaceful retreat to return to the condo and out of the crowds) Condo Belmar is clean, has a well-equipped kitchen/ dining area and each bedroom has a bathroom. The patio gets early morning sun and is shaded for the rest of the day. There was always a security guard on duty 24/7. The listing description is accurate and the owners were available for any questions via email or phone. The pool area has a nice shaded palapa and lounge chairs by the pool. Although the beach can hardly be seen from the condo, it is only a 2-block walk to access the beach. A beach umbrella and one chair along with plenty of beach towels are in the condo. Inside the greeting book are 3 detailed maps (2012) showing the location of beach clubs, restaurants, hotels and Wal-Mart. These maps are from the Map Chicks (see web site) and are very detailed. We used these maps to find just about anything we were looking for. Condo Belmar is a great location as long as you are able to walk a good distance. Mamitas beach club is about a 15min stroll down the beach and we enjoyed going there most days, as there was music and food available. Although, if you do not arrive by 9:30 you may not find an umbrella or a chair. We were there over the holidays so it was especially busy. The condo is located in a developing area but an easy walk to many restaurants and shopping. There is a small coffee shop located a block to the east(toward beach) on the portion of road that is still dirt or several coffee shops on 5th Ave as you walk toward the main part of town. Two small grocery shops are within 3 blocks of the condo and we found everything we needed at one of these smaller stores. Our favorite restaurants ended up being the closet to the condo. Como Como is on 5th Ave and the steak dish that I had was fabulous. Piola, an Italian restaurant is hidden behind some foliage on 38 street right across the street from La Cueva Del Chango (a good breakfast place if you do not mind waiting). We found that Piola’s drinks were the best in town and they served complimentary brushetta. Every meal we had was delightful. Salads were especially tasteful. They serve very large basil martinis that seemed to be the favorite drink. As you continue down this side street toward the beach, you will see Origenes where we enjoyed breakfast."
