Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our time in the penthouse. It is a very pretty and a comfortable unit. Our family of 4 felt very comfortable with lots of room to spread out. We loved the rooftop deck mostly and hung out there often. The grounds ( pools ) absolutely delightful and refreshing. The location in playacar is great a bit of a walk into town ( 5th Ave. ) but very doable or only $6 for a taxi. Yummy bakery across the street ( which we enjoyed almost daily). Viviane was a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful. We will be back!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend a full month in this condo. The condo itself is extremely clean and very functional! We cooked most of our meals out on the balcony using the barbecue. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were very spacious . The grounds and pool areas are outstanding and are kept up constantly by staff ! Viviane ,the property manager may have been the condos biggest attribute! She was an absolute gem from checking us in to checking us out on our last day . She was so easy to get a hold of and made sure ,anything we needed ,we received! Thank you Viv!! Condo also came with new bikes that were so handy to have ! Would definitely return on our next trip to Playa !!

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.
