About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy one the most luxurious beachfront condos in Playa with a private rooftop terrace.

Imagine your own private roof top terrace with panoramic ocean views right in the heart of town. Welcome to Luna Encantada Unit H3, one of the premier oceanfront, penthouse villas in the exclusive boutique 24 unit Luna Encantada Villas.

Luna Encantada's location is one of its best amenities. These resort condos are set amidst Playa del Carmen’s mythical beach and vibrant international sidewalk scene. A mere half block from the gates of Luna Encantada, Playa’s urbane Fifth Avenue pedestrian promenade beckons with relaxed cafes and gourmet restaurants, exclusive lounges, and alfresco bars, intriguing boutiques and local purveyors of all types and variety.

The master bedroom offers a king bed, walk-in closet, and huge walk-in shower tiled with travertine marble. The 2nd bedroom, which has 2 queen beds and a full bath with bathtub, is appointed with beautiful teak furniture.

This luxury beach villa is tastefully decorated in Caribbean Beach decor. The ocean is visible from most every room in the villa, especially from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom where a wall of sliding glass doors and windows offer unobstructed views of the ocean. But the best room in the house is the rooftop terrace. On the terrace you can relax with friends, dine with the outdoor gas BBQ, or just soak in the sun. In the condo, travertine marble floors extend onto your private outdoor terrace, fully equipped chef's stainless kitchen with granite counter tops and throughout the unit. Original paintings and many other fine details provide international style. Even the terrace is furnished in the finest indoor/outdoor comfort for lounging and alfresco dining. The common area courtyard has beautiful landscaping of palm trees, tropical plants, flowers, fountain and a large refreshing infinity edged pool and jetted whirlpool bath. Complimentary outdoor tables and lounge chairs are provided for relaxing and entertaining around the pool.

The beach in front of Luna is white powdery sand, and the crystal-clear blue-green ocean can be entered in front of the complex. The beach is furnished with lounge chairs for use only by Luna guests, and there are palm trees to relax under if you need a break from the sun.

Blessed with perennially sunny skies and a mild climate, Playa prides itself on a relaxing open-air, pedestrian lifestyle. It’s a place to recharge your batteries, find your adventurous side or spend an afternoon happily exploring the finer points of doing absolutely nothing at all! Playa provides a vibrant variety of natural and multicultural experiences any time of year. When the sun rises over the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean it all comes to life. First-rate golf, esteemed spa's, fine outdoors dining and an internationally acclaimed nightlife – the options of experiencing Playa are truly limitless.

About Tonya Sarina

Mike and Maia call Lake Tahoe home, but love a great beach just about anywhere. They discovered Playa del Carmen in 2006 and have never looked back.

Tonya Sarina purchased this condo in 2007

Why Tonya Sarina chose Centro

Luna Encantada offers the best of Playa - right on the beach, one block from the lively Avenida and surrounded by the rich history and beautiful locales of the Mayan peninsula. They chose this development for its amenities, location, and proximity to everything that Playa has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

This beautiful condo features a private patio and rooftop terrace overlooking the pool, beach and ocean.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful condo! We enjoyed making breakfast each morning and sitting on the balcony. The beach is one of the most relaxing and long stretches of white sand we've ever seen. Thanks for sharing this special spot. Great memories for years to come!

This place is outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our stay at Luna. From the beginning to the end it was wonderful. Maia helped us arrange for airport transfers which were great and very reasonable. The staff and Edith were all amazing. Edith checked on us several times to make sure the cleaning was good and to see if we needed water or anything else. She even booked our day trip to Tulum which was great. They were so ready to make our stay a great one. This condo is well equipped, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The rooftop balcony is awesome. It's so close to everything that we walked everywhere. Shopping, restaurants, groceries and even mass at a beautiful chapel on the water were minutes away. We couldn't get over how clean and safe it was walking around. Then when you were ready to go back to the condo it was 1/2 block away but felt like you were miles away. We couldn't believe how quiet and secluded the condo felt being so close to everything. The beach was great and nicely kept. The attendants were waiting and ready to fix your chair and help with whatever you needed. I can truly say that we loved this condo. We definitely hope to return!

Perfect location, beautiful beach, wonderful accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent a week at New Year's in Luna Encantada H3. Our children are 11 and 8. The condo is perfect for a family like ours. We had everything we needed. The view is stunning. We loved being up on the third floor to have a better view. The beach just out front is really nice - while there are some rocks, there are sandy areas where you can walk right into the waves which is not true just up or down the beach. Edgar and the staff always had chairs available to us and the food from Inti, the restaurant next door, was really good - much better than I expected. Edith, Abigail and the staff at Luna Encantada made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us daily. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The location from the Avenida is really perfect - it is kind of at the South end - but just steps away to all the hustle and bustle. We definitely recommend this condo and location.

Holiday Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week of fun and relaxation at this excellent condo. We traveled with our four children (all in their 20's). All of the positive comments mentioned in previous reviews were substantiated. Maia made the process of booking super easy and she even arranged for our shuttle transportation from the airport. The condo had everything that we needed for our family of 6. We enjoyed the rooftop terrace and spent a bunch of time up there playing cards and visiting. This condo was an excellent choice and the perfect location. Quiet yet one block from 5th avenue it provided an abundance of options for everyone. Great shopping, dining, and relaxation and fun in the sun. The service provided by Edith was excellent. She was always just a call away and arranged a tour for us to Tulum and local cenotes that was wonderful. All of the services were top-notch (beach, cleaning, security, etc) We are definitely planning a return trip and trying to include our extended family on our next visit.

Exceeded our expectations.

We enjoyed our stay and penthouse location.

We did not eat in as much as we had thought we would.

BBQ is located up on the patio above the kitchen.

We liked Luna Encantada so much that we have booked again for May...

Excellently managed property, all the staff were friendly and accommodating...on the beach, at the entrance and desk to book reservations, make a quick phone call, hail a cab. Loved ❤️ loved our first stay.

Breathtaking Ocean View, Location, Location, Location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, the staff was beyond friendly and helpful! Then we opened the door and my mouth dropped! The ocean view was mesmerizing!!!! Gorgeous, interior. I loved the size of the master bath shower, LOL, even the private toilet had a wonderful spot for my morning coffee, LOL! We had everything we needed in this condo. The floor plan is perfect with the bedrooms being so far apart and so large! It was quiet. The neighbors are so friendly. Then, oh my goodness, it's close to EVERYTHING AND I MEAN EVERYTHING! We even walked to Walmart! No need for a car at all!!! We rented one, but didn't need it and the basement parking garage is plenty big too! We stayed at one other place and I wished we would have stayed here the entire week! The only thing, because nothing is perfect, was that we prefer very soft mattress and these were firm. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay! Oh, and it had an elevator which Most places do not have an elevator!!!

Wonderful apartment with a great ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Luna Encantada. The apartment was great and had all necessary amenities. A full length mirror in the master bedroom would be nice. We especially liked the roof top access, with the most amazing view of the ocean. My only complaint another sun lounger and a couple of bar stools for the raised level would have been wonderful for watching the world go by with a cocktail.

The staff at Luna were very helpful and always happy to answer any questions. Edgar always made sure we were well taken care of at the beach, with chairs, tables and an umbrella.

Edith, the property manager was also great. We talked to her about a tour of the ruins and she made it happen.

Now back in cold, cloudy Ohio and missing Luna. Until next time.
