About Amy Hemer

We are a family of 5 from Minneapolis with a love for Mexico and Playa del Carmen. We love to travel and lead a very active life.

Amy Hemer purchased this condo in 2008

Why Amy Hemer chose Centro

We fell in love with Playa in 2001 and have been every year since. We decided to purchase our condo in Palmar del Sol after seeing the amazing location and private pool and garden area as well as the wonderful design of the building - only 20 units was a big appeal for us. And it passed the test for a very particular Architect! We live in Minneapolis, MN and enjoy the sun and beach in Playa any chance we get.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son (19) and daughter (16) and I spent 7 great nights in the condo. The unit was nicely laid out and the roof-top deck was a fantastic way to start the day with a nice cup of coffee. The management staff were very helpful and friendly. The cleaning staff also did a great job. The unit is very well appointed and stocked...the bottled water was very useful. The combination of direct access to Quinta Avenue combined with a short walk to a beautiful beach make for a perfect location. We enjoyed having a quiet private pool to relax in the late afternoons. Amy was great to deal with and her recommendations for activities and restaurants were spot on. We would definitely recommend the unit to others and we hope to be able to come back again.

Peaceful, comfortable condo with great beach facilities

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 wonderful days in this condo- AC worked great.Plenty of hot water-just took a couple minutes to warm up. All appliances worked well. The Riviera Maya management team was very efficient. Check in and check out were quick and easy. Condo was clean and had wonderful breezes on roof top and balcony.Best part was the free access to Las Palapas Beach Club- the nicest section of beach in town! Large shady palapas and comfortable lounges. Great food and drinks available. Several nice pools on the grounds. Just a short walk thru jungle to beach.Will definitely return soon.

As soon as we walked in to the Condo we loved it!!! Location is prime. Great amenities and no trouble with the Management Company with our requests. We loved the pool and hot tub. Able to meet other families and couples to share our stories and Playa suggestions. We did have an issue with the hot water but both management and the owners were very very accommodating. The owners were excellent to work with that we already re-booked their unit in July. I did miss having a United States news channel, i.e., CNN, but is was great at the same time because it made it feel like a vacation. Great to have the access to Las Palapas. After 8 trips to Playa, this was the best beach for us. Great location to the our favorite part of Playa Del Carmen.

Palmar Del Sol - - Wonderful Condo in PDC!

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Riveria Maya and Playa del Carmen many times - - staying in large all inclusives and small boutique hotels in town. This is the first condo I've rented and enjoyed the experience very much. It feels so warm and it was so nice to have a large space - - 2br and 2 baths plus a full kitchen. The condo was just lovely and in a great location on the quieter north end of 5th ave....close enough to all the restaurants and beach yet far enough from some of the larger "clubs". Communication upfront with Amy was prompt and she provided a document with great details for first timers including transportation options and restaurant recommendations. Having access to Las Palapas beach was a great perk with chairs and palapas; restaurant and bar; and restrooms. Felt very safe at the condo with a security guard and locked front entrance - - there is a safe in the room and free wifi. Spent most of our time at the beach but the pool was one of the nicest pools I've experienced in Playa. Great size, lovely waterfall, perfect temperature, and jacuzzi always heated. Some restaurants we enjoyed were: The cafe Chez Celine (in same building as condo) has the BEST chocolate croissants EVER; Cuevo del Chango for breakfast chilaquiles, Il Pescatore de Ileana on 10th ave and 24th st has some of the best italian food; and El Diez on 5th ave and 30th st has a great agentinian flank steak. Buy yourself a bottle of La Pinta Pomegrante Tequila for predinner drinks...the best! I would highly recommend a stay in this condo. Looking forward to coming back next year. Thank you Amy!

Christmas and New Years 2012 Family Vacation

I have to say this was a really excellent find. Amy helped answer all our questions and the place actually feels a lot bigger in person. The roof top was perfect and we even had a couple afternoons at the pool. However, the big highlight was having access to Las Palapas. Yes we had to go down early to get seats - but we spent the majority of our time at this most perfect spot on the beach. When we walked down the beach we realized how great the location is. The only suggestion I had was the checklist that we had to fill in when we got there - it was very long, detailed and seemed may have gone quicker if the concerige had gone through it. Some of the names of the items I did not recognize so it may have been inaccurate. Overall, however, a wonderful time and a wonderful place!!!

Our stay in PDC

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for allowing us to use your great apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in PDC - your place was in a perfect location for us.....away from the main part of 5th but close enough when we wanted to go there, and plenty of nice restaurants close by. The beach club and facilities at Las Palapas were great to have - we spent a LOT of time there.

Thanks for your information and recommendations too.  We ate out lots.  We can also highly recommend Epicurean Chef Services - they prepared a wonderful meal and cocktails for us on our friend's 40th birthday. In fact, we were eating leftovers for a couple of days too! Fantastic.

Anyway, thanks again!
