  • Peaceful, comfortable condo with great beach facilities

    "Spent 10 wonderful days in this condo- AC worked great.Plenty of hot water-just took a couple minutes to warm up. All appliances worked well. The Riviera Maya management team was very efficient. Check in and check out were quick and easy. Condo was clean and had wonderful breezes on roof top and balcony.Best part was the free access to Las Palapas Beach Club- the nicest section of beach in town! Large shady palapas and comfortable lounges. Great food and drinks available. Several nice pools on the grounds. Just a short walk thru jungle to beach.Will definitely return soon."

  • Couldn't have been any better!

    "The Banyan Tree Mayakoba is one of those special places that you must venture out to. My Wife and I have been on some wonderful Caribbean vacations over the years but this one trumped them all. The hotel grounds are exquisite (and massive, we rode bikes all over the property)! The staff is as helpful and responsive as can be. We stayed at this villa with 2 other couples. While there is only one true master bedroom, the other 2 bedrooms are magnificent too and no one felt as though they got the worst room. We all had plenty of space for alone time and definitely did not feel as though we were on top of each other. The Beach is located right outside the villa and is steps away from the Sands beach club if you want hang out at a pool or with other people. The booking process was really great too. Susan from Playa Luxury Rentals was very responsive and answered all of our questions prior to arrival. Just do it!"

  • Wonderful location with "Mexican" flavor

    "We spent 4 days at Palma Cocos, what a wonderful condo! It looks very quaint, like old Mexico with tiles and adobe. The greatest part is the location, only a block from 5th ave and 5 minutes from the beach. And its QUIET at night! Some friends of ours stayed on the beach near Calle 14, and were kept up by loud music and talking all night. The apartment is a little dated, but cute and clean. There are lots of movies and DVD's. The pool on the roof is beautiful, with great night views. Jose the caretaker is very helpful. We had a great time there, can't wait to go back! Brent the owner sent a nice info packet with all the particulars about the apartment and area."

  • what a wonderful stay in Playa del Carmen!

    "Right from the first communication of email we were thrilled with finding accommodation for our holiday at Hora Feliz! Dany was so easy to make arrangements with for our dates of our stay! She offered assistance with airport transfers and answered all of our questions quickly before we arrived! We had never been to Playa del Carmen and we were ecstatic to say the least!! Our apartment at Hora Feliz was absolutely wonderful! It was so clean and comfortable! It was bright and welcoming! We felt at home from the moment we arrived! The location was perfect! Just a block from 5th Avenue and 3 from the ocean! Nice and quiet and clean and a safe neighborhood! We did not feel uncomfortable coming home after dark or at any point in the area! People were friendly and full of smiles for us! Dany made our holiday feel like a stay with friends more than a strange location! She was there to offer help with clean beach towels and suggestions for swimming with the dolphins and local restaurants. We could not have asked for more! We would recommend Hora Feliz as an amazing place to stay in Playa del Carmen! We will be passing on our fantastic experience to friends and family and the first chance we have to return, we will be staying with Dany again! Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou! from the bottom of our hearts for everything! Rexelle, Jaimie and Robyn"
