About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Alcazar De Playa, ' The Fortress,' is a custom-built home located in Playacar, a resort community adjacent to the Village of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Playacar development is 800 acres of elegant, all-inclusive hotels, condominiums, private residences, golf course, beaches, and Mayan Ruins. From Alcazar, it is a short 15 minute walk to the Village of Playa del Carmen.

You will find five bedrooms, each with its own balcony, bath, and powder room. Each uniquely decorated. On the second-floor, the master bedroom has a spiral stair leading to a private rooftop patio with partial views of the ocean. Also on the second-floor is a common open air sitting/recreation area with a palapa roof and ceiling fan where everyone can gather. The entire house is air conditioned.

Downstairs you will find the kitchen, dining room, and living room furnished with antique hacienda furniture as well as the foyer. The large courtyard patio, which can be accessed from either the foyer or the dining room, provides privacy amidst lush tropical landscaping.

From here one can enjoy the adjacent swimming pool or the tennis court within 20 yards of the house. It's only a three minute walk to the beach or a three wood shot to the golf course. 'Alcazar' is truly an elegant and spectacular villa.

Our property manager can address all of your needs including transportation, meals, shopping, sports activities and tourist information.

About Bernard Stover

MY wife and I are in our 70's and reside in Traverse City, MI. She is a retired special ed teacher and I am actively involved in the oil and gas exploration business

Bernard Stover purchased this villa in 1999

Why Bernard Stover chose Quintana Roo

We chose Playa Del Carmen for four reasons

1. Short travel time from the US

2. Unique Mayan culture

3. Diving in Cozumel

4. Terrific ambiance of Playa Del Carmen

What makes this villa unique

Our home provides several private outdoor areas for those times when privacy is desired. the unique design and layout provides access to all of the bedrooms without having to go through central areas. The patio/courtyard with its talavera fountain has complete privacy from neighboring villas.

The Perfect Stay”



5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday for a stay in July 2014 NEW







This is possibly the best choice for a vacation stay in the Mayan Riviera when traveling with friends. Bernie is wonderful as is his neighbor and friend Victor.

Casa Alcazar's property manager Ulla Meibohm is second to none. She helped us with all the arrangements. There were snacks and drinks

Beautiful home and a perfect location! You must book ASAP.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days in Playa and stayed at this beautiful home. Words can not express the beauty and perfection this home is. A wonderful location. Safe, clean and the service is one of the best I have ever experienced. I've traveled all over the world and stayed at some of the most beautiful resorts and this was by far the best experience I have ever had. We were here celebrating my mother in laws 60th Birthday and it was a trip she will never forget. Polo the home care taker is the sweetest guy! So helpful and can make an awesome breakfast. Leo the manager is great! she's there for anything you and your family will need. We can't to go back next year! Thank you !!!! We love your home.

Excellent house mexican style

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for two weeks, with my family, a party of ten. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It provided privacy in their five bedrooms as well as several places to gather as a family. We loved the mexican style decoration and the beautiful gardens. The location was excellent, with respect to the beach, downtown and the supermarkets . Leo Mederos, the manager was very friendly and responsive to our needs.

We will definitely recommend it to our friends and certainly come back if we travel to Playa del Carmen again.

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, we'll decorated and close to town. Loved that all the rooms were private yet under the same roof. Great for familys or group of friends. We were able to walk or bike to everything. We felt like we had a private pool and tennis courts since they were never in use. It was great to have the choice of cooking in or going out. We definitely plan on coming back.

Convenient to downtown, impeccable gardens

  • 5 of 5

We travel to MX every other year and will most definitely be rebooking this property again.

I am a gardener so being able to relax amongst the beautiful and impeccably groomed gardens was a highlight of mine..hot coffee, a good book and the sound of the water fountain as background noise...Paradise!

Our room was clean, fresh linens were provided and the blow dryer was nice to have (I forgot mine...again!) We mostly cook on vacations so it was important that the kitchen was organized and clean...everything had a place. No expired spices or dirty vegetable drawers. I felt immediately at home and definitely took advantage of this space! We enjoyed the pool and just the peace and tranquility of being still. The neighbors are friendly and the staff (cant remember names) was amazing. I appreciated all the attention to the details of this beautiful and tranquil space....we will be back soon!

Great stay convenient location

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this rental in Playacar phase II. The location is convenient and safe. It's a gated area and you feel the surrounding is a peaceful community. Above all, the manager Leonor took a great care of us. She is very communicative and responded to all our request and inquiry in a timely manner. We also got helpful information of local restaurants and tourism guides. They came in handy for us. In addition, the maid service has been great and she was there everyday to clean the yard and cook for you at your request. We will come back!

This is a great place for a family stay. Near the beach, near the resorts.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Playa del Carmen for our son's wedding in a nearby all-inclusive resort. Our party consisted of my wife and I, our two daughters' families (with three children under age 3) and another son. Resorts and children really don't mix so this place worked out well. Ulla, the property manager was great at giving us advise on logistics (she arranged for private transportation from airport for 5 different trips). Gladys, the housekeeper, also is a chef and cooked three dinners for us (she supplies the groceries, cooks and cleans up). The kitchen is well equipped. A dozen other nice properties surround a shared pool and tennis court. The beach is a couple blocks away via a locked gated approach and the resort row starts a block away. Taxis can be hailed on the street outside the front door for shopping sprees at nearby Walmart or Mexican markets.

This place is better than the property description. Fans and A/C in each room. We had 10 for dinner one night. Great patio for breakfast, coffee or afternoon beer. Property contains a pavilion that one could entertain 100 people.Floors are tile and stairs and upper common area are open so rain will cause slipperiness.
