Our stay

  • 3 of 5

The condo and grounds were beautiful. Vivian was helpful. The rental process was smooth. Safe area. We were not allowed to use the rooftop hot tub which a big selling point for us and very disappointing. We didn’t find out until we arrived. The walk to anywhere was just too far for us and taking a cab Is easy but not cheap. Beach is gorgeous and we enjoyed The Reef.

Owner's Response: Hi Shawn , we are glad that you enjoyed the penthouse and our hospitality from Viviane . The jacuzzi part of your review is simply not accurate. The manager showed you how to operate the jacuzzi in detail and it indeed was working during your stay and able to be used. At the time you stayed there was not a hot water supply set up , but it you could use it with temperate water as everyone else has. However, we are choosing to upgrade the system and adding a hot water supply this week (1/17/18 ), so this should not be any concern for future guests. We asked VRBO to retract that part of your review because it is simply not accurate. You could have used the jacuzzi throughout your entire stay.

Luxury - Best Penthouse in Playacar - luxury appliances and close to beach.

  • 5 of 5

Hi and thanks again for the lovely stay.

Nice job on the upgrades since the last time, I see that you are really putting in the effort to make this the nicest unit in all of Playacar. Beautiful job on the outdoor rooftop with new cushions and furniture. This trip was a bit "wetter" than usual so we spent a lot of time indoors relaxing. I appreciate that we went with a high end place this time with great appliances and BBQ grill.

Thanks for handling the transport to and from the airport and the rental car, everyone was so nice and accomodating and we were able to take our day trip and see some sites this time.

To those of you looking for a place to stay in Playa del Carmen, this is by far the nicest building / unit I've come across on this side of town. While you are only minutes from downtown via taxi, it is peaceful and the private beach is great. Vaiven is one of the few doorman buildings in the city, the lobby and the whole building feel like you are at a Four Seasons Resort!

I see that you are mostly booked up in Jan and Feb, but if work let's me, we will be back in March.

Thanks for the hospitality!

Adiós, hasta pronto.

Wow! Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing vacation at this penthouse. It was a newer modern building and had all of the amenities we are used to at home: elevator, doorman, large gym in the building, and wonderful swimming pools around the property. The condo was very spacious and very well equipped. We spent many nights cooking in the awesome kitchen and bbqing on the deck. The manager was exceptionally kind and helpful in us organizing our transportation and excursions. The beds are super comfortable and there was even a desk for me to work at the one day of my vacation that I was forced to work remotely. The location in Playacar is super quiet at night which is a big change from all the noise and crowds in the center of town. The beach was also so beautiful in this part of Playa . You cannot go wrong renting this penthouse. We will be back again for sure!

Owner's Response: Thanks Ken for the compliments about our new penthouse condo. We just listed this condo on VRBO and that is why it doesn't have many reviews yet. We are so happy to have met your expectations. You left the place super clean too. You are welcome back at our rental anytime. Best regards, Laura

Super relaxing! Great People, wish it was a longer visit

  • 5 of 5

You will be very surprised by the quality, workmanship, and amenities in this great Playacar location.

I usually stay in town, so I was initially concerned about being a little bit outside (15 min) from the middle of everything, but wow, I was surprised what a positive difference it made. This place is like a dream. The building is super nice, the unit itself.. spotless. Internet and AC and access to Reef Beach - which is amazing.

We loved the quiet atmoshere and real vacation-feel to the stay. I will definitely be booking this one again. The staff was extremely welcoming (they live In Playacar) and took care of everything for us (including car rental!!). Booking through VRBO was a snap and the owner gave us a bunch of things to do while in town.

Having a parking spot and simple way of getting around was great. The place is pretty big, so I could easiely see having a few couples or a family here.

This time of the year can be a little hot here, so I was happy we went for a high end place like this.

Thanks, and see you in October.
