Recent Playa del Carmen reviews

  • Great Condo!

    "Our family had a great time at Luna Encantada! This unit is better than the pics! The first afternoon-night was bumpy with really loud music and the loudest bass amplifier on the planet from Fusion next door for 12 hours straight. But I still give 4 stars because everything else was great! The onsite staff were very attentive and helpful. Looking forward to coming back!"

  • AWESOME BEACHFRONT VILLA A-2!!! - CENTER OF TOWN!

    "My wife and I stayed at this fabulous beachfront condo for a week this summer. It was obvious that there were several recent upgrades to this unit, with a total replacement of the 3 zone central air conditioner, and a new stainless steel stove and dishwasher. We were very pleased at this fact because we had read several reviews about unreliable air conditioners at Luna. During our stay we were exceptionally cared for by Edith, the onsite guest-service manager who was able to answer any questions about the complex and local area. The condo is poolside with breathtaking views over the infinity pool and Caribbean. We loved sitting out in the morning with coffee on the shaded balcony and later in the day it was sunny. It was great to work with Richard, the owner/manager and he was able to answer our many questions. He also guided us into some fantastic day trips to the many theme parks and Mayan ruins. I would definitely return to this condo and there is no doubt that this is a fabulous location of the beach, within the center-of-town!"

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "Luna Encantada was easily one of the best family vacation sites we've had, truly a home away from home. We were greeted at the secure gate, and taken immediately to our 3 bedroom condo. The on-site help was always prompt and available. Jose was so helpful; he even brought a fan for our bedroom since we were used to having the "white noise." A ceiling leak from the upper floor was immediately addressed. Although just across from a bar/grill, the noise never bothered us at night. (A few pesky footfalls from above, but that can happen at any resort/hotel.) The infinity pool, grounds and beach were spotless. Gabriel at the beach was so nice and helpful with umbrellas, drinks and chairs. (One could walk a long ways on the beautiful white sand beach.) We made use of the laundry daily, as well as the kitchen. Less than a block away, was Fifth Avenue, where we enjoyed many shops, restaurants, and miscellaneous businesses. After a few days, we even let our kids go without us to shop. The view from our patio was spectacular. Many hours were spent there just listening to the waves and enjoying the view. Also a perfect spot to watch the pool, if our kids were swimming. (*Teens, not toddlers.) There were several excursion kiosks right on the beach near our condo. Our family did snorkeling, para-sailing and jet-skiing. Also, massage and yoga right next door. (Our extended family who joined us, really enjoyed deep sea fishing with Ivan, which was booked online before our trip. (Highly recommend Fishing with Ivan, which was a short cab ride away.) Yaxche Mayan Restaurant was very good, and just a couple blocks from us on 5th was Cafe de la Mer, an upstairs restaurant which was fabulous. Housekeeping came as much or as little as you wanted, and they were great! I cannot wait to go back here. Loved it so much more than any hotel or resort, and I have been to quite a few. The mega (groceries) and Walmart were walking distance, (maybe a mile) but a cab is needed to carry stuff back. LOVED this place the best out of all my 10 or so, trips to Cancun/Playa del Carmen. Can't wait to return!"

  • Beautiful condo in great location

    "Third floor condo with three balconies plus huge terrace directly above on fourth floor. Everything was very clean, bed was comfortable. There is even one parking spot if you rent a car. It is less than 5 minute walk to a couple of beach clubs on the north end of town. It is about 15-20 minute walk to the ferry, bus station and beach on the south end. Less than 10 minute walk to the grocery store. My only complaints would be that there is no laundry on site, and the swimming pool doesn't get much sun. All in all, though, a great place to stay."
