  • Wonderful Visit

    "We spent 8 days in this condo with our 15 and 12 year old daughters. First, I have to say, that for those not familiar with Playa del Carmen, this is not a destination for quiet, out of the way relaxation. You are definitely "in the middle of it all" the second you walk out of your sliding doors onto the beach. The first day we arrived, the club next door (Coco Maya) was pounding it's music & the bass exceptionally loud mid-afternoon. I was very concerned that this would be a problem but it seemed to be an unusual occurrence and things were better after that (a few pleading glances at the DJ would often fix that problem!). And honestly, after a day or so, we found we didn't really hear the music much anymore. It was just background noise. And, while the music got louder at night, the bedrooms were really very insulated and none of the bedrooms were disturbed. (Funny, we NEVER saw more than half a dozen people in the club. My husband even walked over there one night around midnight one night just to see & it was empty. I don't know who they were playing the music for!). Anyway, we loved being right on the beach. A little disappointed that we couldn't swim immediately in front of us because of too many boats, but there was a swimming area just to the right and a couple of days we walked down the beach to Mamita's beach and rented a chair for the day. (Seems pricey at $35 but it includes food, bathrooms, a pool and an umbrella). The waiters from Coco Maya came by to ask if we wanted drinks etc. so that was nice too. Up and down the beach there are massage stations for $20 massages. One of those stations is directly in front of the condo on the beach which is a bit annoying but, like the music, we eventually came to ignore it and it was convenient when I wanted a massage! The cleaning staff came every 2 days and did a great job and everyone was lovely. There was a slew of 20 somethings there when we were so there was quite a bit of partying going on but it wasn't too disruptive. We were always able to use the pool (very small but a nice break) without crowds, never a problem parking our rental car. The condo was well stocked, Water cooler, A/c & fans worked well (very much needed in August!) laundry was great, plenty of towels, high quality linens. Wifi excellent. Location is great, 2 blocks to restaurants and shops (& Starbucks in both directions). Took lots of day trips (Tulum, Chichen Itza) & great mid-way point for this."
