About Ron and Crystal
Welcome. . . Welcome to our condo, Casa Dorothea. We are Ron and Crystal, Americans who have been coming to Playa del Carmen since 2000. Our home is named after Ron's mother, Dorothy, and like her, we want this house to be full of warmth, laughter, love and good times. We are happy that we can share Casa Dorothea with you and your family and we know that you will take care of our home and treat it like your own. We want you to be comfortable while enjoying our tropical retreat so you can soak up the tranquility, languish by the pools, stroll through the gardens, and explore all that Playa del Carmen has to offer. In the year 2000, we started coming to Playa and staying at the all-inclusive resorts, then we rented and then finally took the plunge and bought property ... and never regretted it. Once you leave the confines of a resort and stay in a condo, you are free to truly enjoy a wonderfully unique experience.
Ron and Crystal purchased this Condo in 2005

Relaxing stay at Casa Dorothea
We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Casa Dorothea. The condo was clean and the property management team was so helpful. We had the tire on our stroller go flat and someone from their office brought a bicycle pump to the condo to pump it up. Once we realized that we actually needed a new inner tube for the tire, the gentleman helping us took our tire to the bike shop and came back to our condo with a replacement. I couldn't believe the level of service that we received from him! The owner, Ron, was very helpful in providing lots of restaurant recommendations in Playa. The condo had everything that we needed and was in a great location. We would definitely consider staying at Casa Dorothea again!
Beautiful Place ... Perfect Location
Casa Dorothea is the perfect vacation spot. First, the condo is beautiful. We’ve travelled to the Riviera for 11 years, and we’ve stayed in many places. Everything from AI resorts to tiny boutique hotels. Casa Dorothea has been the best so far.
Right from the beginning … at the booking stage … Ron provided perfect communications. Thanking us for booking, letting us know what to expect, sending us the condo check in info, as well as a great bundle of information about the area, restaurants, local services, groceries, etc. He also provided info that a person can utilize to get from the Airport to the condo. It is nice to see this information provided. As most places, thank you for your business but how you get there is left completely up to you.
Check in was the easiest we have had, ever. You arrive, show your confirmation at the desk in the lobby, and you self check in. While Casa Dorothea is only about a 10 minute walk … depending on what gear you’re in … from the ADO bus station, doing the walk while dragging luggage can work up a bit of a sweat. Walking into the condo to finding a bowl of fresh fruit, water, and a few emergency cervezas … was perfect. Normally you get to where you are going, you’re hot and sweaty, and you must trudge off to the grocery store right away. I can’t tell you how great it is to be able to stop and take a breather with a cold drink after the famous ADO bag-drag.
As for the condo, I don’t think I could do a better job of describing it than Ron and Crystal have done. The condo is the perfect size. Big enough to not feel crowded but not one of these weirdly cavernous places either. It feels like a home and not a hotel. Great view of the pool. The rooftop is amazing. Everything that you need is provided for a relaxing and comfortable stay. There are plenty of towels and face clothes. The bed is very firm. Not a pro or con, as everyone has a different preference. All in all, the place is excellent.
Lastly, location. This condo is in what I can only describe as the Playa del Carmen sweet-spot. It’s close to all the basics. 5th Ave., the beach/beach clubs, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, and so on. Everything is within a 5 to 15 minute walk. Finally, if you arrived by ADO bus, the ADO station to return to the airport is only a block away.
Over all … in 11 years … Casa Dorothea is the best place we’ve stayed at.
This apartment was perfect
I loved this apartment. The location was less than a block from the Coco Bongo and the main drag of La Quinta however, it was quiet as could be. I never heard any street noise.
The rooms are very well furnished and the kitchen well equipped. The internet is nice and fast, and the owners provided great information before we got here.
I highly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to this area.
Many thanks .. it was a pleasure having you as a guest and meeting you for morning coffee on 5th Av. Thanks for staying with us. Hope our paths cross again.
All the best, Ron and Crystal
Loved the views and amenities.
Loved my experience! Great views, walking distance to the beach, shopping and food. Great location. Will definitely come back! I would suggest plug ins with a natural scent to make it smell more like home.
Thanks Aria ... we are looking forward to seeing you during your next trip to Playa. Thanks for staying with us, Ron and Crystal
