Why Laura & Viviane Pentecost chose Gonzalo Guerrero
This is a new property just listed on VRBO in Sept of 2017. We purchased this condo because it is in the very best location in all of Playa , 1 block to the famous 5Th Ave and 1 block to the most beautiful beach in all of Playa Del Carmen. The apartment is HUGE 1100 sq ft and completely remodeled with all of the luxury features that you would expect, big new kitchen, great big bedroom with mayan bric ceiling, great big king size comfy bed, A/c, laundry in condo, great swimming pool etc.

Excellent apartment - just like the pics.
Fantastic place overall. Perfect for a couple or group of 3 or 4 (if they can sleep on the couches). Beautiful kitchen, newly remodeled with an abundance of pans to use! A chef's dream in some respects. Cute little enclosed patio with wall fountain. Open to the roof, so someone can easily smoke and it won't come inside. Spacious. I liked the dining room table and its height. The stools that went with it were nicely sized and high. Has a rain shower head and plenty of hot water. The Internet was respectable and only went out completely 1x that we were aware of. Nice TV arrangement. One of the most important things was that the A/C is fantastic. It gets quite hot in the summer months, and even though we were there over Thanksgiving, it was still very hot during the day. Sometimes even very humid at 10 pm.
The location of this place is superb! Being only 1 block off of 5th ave, everything you'd want to walk to was easy. We enjoyed some Stunningly tasty food while in PDC. Gourmet and expertly done. All of this w/in a reasonable walk. Even Walmart is a short cab ride.
So many good things to say about the apartment. Only 1 negative. For me, it is a huge enough issue that I may not return. The Bed. It was literally like sleeping on concrete. I'm shocked its possible to buy something THAT firm! Unless you simply adore sleeping on a tile floor, I imagine you'll feel the same as I do. Again, so many great things to say about the apartment. Enough that I went ahead and gave it 5 stars. For me, the bed just never became acceptable. I disliked waking up with sore spots wherever my skin touched the "mattress" . Can't imagine many people would disagree with me. Perhaps you could pack an air mattress.
Otherwise, everything was perfect. Good communication. Fantastic support while there, and the place is just as it appears. Loved so much about the place. I suspect you will too. (minus the bed of course).
Location! Location! Location! As well... Very Nice, spacious 1 BDRM condo Unit
This was our 1st time using VRBO! Loved the location, location, location of the condo unit, as you are 1 minute from Quinta Avenida (5th Ave) Shops/Restaurants. You are less than 5 minutes from the Mamitas Beach walking... There is OXXO in front of condo plex for some groceries, snack, drinks... The Owners/Hosts were very gracious and helpful during check-in and check-out. We were somewhat familiar with Playa area, though if you are not familiar with Playa or need recommendations, they have all sorts of info at their fingertips... Condo has everything available to make your stay comfortable and lovely... Hope to be back very soon... Thought it was great value, clean, and spacious for 1BDRM unit with sofa sleeper, so comfortable for / up to 4... GREAT VALUE and imagine ONE OF THE BEST VRBO units available in Playa for the price! Take the Pepsi challenge, you will not be disappointed!
Thank you so much for the beautiful review :)
The most important for us is that the guests feels like home and are confortable with everything.
It was a pleasure meeting you, you are welcome anytime 😊😎.

Perfect location and Perfect Place to stay in Playa!
If you are looking for a wonderful stay and very short distance to beach and Quinta, this is the place! Walking distance to Mamitas beach and Quinta Avenida is priceless! The home is very beautiful, clean,comfortable and very well equipped. There is a roof terraza where you can relax and have a glass of wine, while your children are at the pool and looking for Hacienda San Jose's pet "Pepe" a friendly Iguana (my kids named him,ha!). Viviane she makes your stay magical & provides VIP treatment! She is always in contact and guides you with highly recommended activities,car rentals, and places to eat and shop.We highly enjoyed the Buggys ATV activity where we visited a Private Cenote and we rode the caribbean jungle. Viviane was waiting for us at Plaza Las Perlas, when we arrived and she had cold beer ready for us in the fridge, that was a refreshing welcome! Viviane also make sure we had plenty of drinking water at condominium, this was a plus! If you need anything at all, please let Viviane know she is amazing and this property is the perfect place to stay! I will definitely come back!
Fantastic place and people!
This was our first time to Playa del Carmen and our stay could have not been better. Laura coordinated our booking which was very smooth. Viviane was our local contact and she was amazing. First, we arrived at 6am in Cancun. Viviane arranged a pickup and then allowed us to use the unit when we arrived at about 9am even though check-in was not until 4pm. Upon our arrival, Viviane met us to give us the low down. She even stocked the frig with a 12-pack of beer. After leaving us so we could get some sleep after a red-eye flight, she sent us a list of many good restaurants in the area. This was a great help. She was also extremely prompt in responding to our WhatsApp texts or calls. The place is in a very nice ~30 unit condo. Our unit was very nice, clean, and quite even thought we were a few hundred yards from bars and restaurant on 5th ave. The building was really 1 block from 5th ave and about 2 blocks from the beach. Perfect location. The building had a small, but nice pool and a roof-top deck where we could hang out in a hammock. We met a few of the other folks there and they were owners who lived there year round. In short, very nice place, awesome service on Viviane's and Laura's part, and a fantastic location. You can't go wrong with this place.
Thank you Ward, It was our great pleasure to host your vacation in Playa del Carmen! We welcome you back anytime and thank you for taking such good care of our condo!
We had a great time in Playa Del Carmen and want to recommend this destination to everyone, especially at condo San Jose. Host Viviane welcomed us upon arrival with some drinks and snacks so we didn’t have to run for groceries. She informed us about the good restaurants, bars and beach clubs in Playa. Thanks to her we visited places that we maybe would’ve missed. Viviane also gave us nice tips and tricks about moving around in the Riviera Maya and places to visit. She was always available for all our questions. Condo San Jose has an ideal location, 5min walk to the beach and 5min walk to exiting 5th Avenue. It is an idyllic apartment, completely private (which is really nice for a couple), very clean, comfy bed and sofa and beautiful terrace. The kitchen contains all the needed supplies and there are more than enough towels and linen in the apartment. Also important, the WiFi works perfectly. We will definitely go back to Playa Del Carmen and condo San Jose and are happy to share this beautiful place with you.
Little paradise in the heart of Playa Del Carmen
I had a magnificent stay at Hacienda San Jose. A 2min walk to Mamitas Beach and a 2min walk to exiting 5th Avenue with beautiful shops, restaurants and bars. The condo has a good size pool and the commun areas are clean and well taken care of. The apartment is just beautiful, very cozy. I fell in love with the high bedroom sealing, the beautiful little terrace, gorgeous kitchen and the privacy. This apartment is perfect for a couple. It is close to everything and still quit and hidden. Viviane welcomed me at my arrival and immediately I knew I had chosen the right place to spend my holiday. She gave me good tips and tricks around Playa, was at my disposal for any questions and helped me chose good excursions. She had also prepared some drinks in the fridge and tortillas chips so I didn’t had to run to the store immediately. I travel alone a lot and I know already that I will be coming back to this little paradise. I had a great holiday, met wonderful people and saw beautiful things. The apartment, I would like to take it to my hometown. It was just perfect.
Thank you Lorraine for your stay . You took great care of our house and it was a pleasure to host your vacation ! Come back really soon!
