About Laura Carmine
My husband, Terry, and I have been going to Playa del Carmen since 1993. We've been to beaches all over the world (Australia, France, Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, etc) and Playa is my favorite beach (I am a beach girl). We fell in love early with Porto Playa Condo/Hotel because of the great design, beautiful landscaping, fabulous pools, and overall charm. It is the best location in Playa. Since I started renting units in 2005 we (Marcela and myself) have made thousands of reservations for guests like us, and we love doing it. We believe in giving you what you want and live Our promises to you: 1. We respond to all emails within hours. 2. We want you to have the right property for your needs and desires even if it means renting you another unit (not ours) in any of our 5 properties: Porto Playa, Magia Beachside, El Taj Ocean, or Maya Villa. 3. We will be honest with you on any and all questions you may have. 4. We are committed to getting you the best rate we possibly can and can match the Property Management’s rate on all units in all 5 properties. Our goal is for you to have a fabulous experience and come back again. es to you: Playa and Porto Playa are paradise. Come join the party! The address of Porto Playa is 1st Ave. and Calle 16. Thanks Laura Leli Carmine
Why Laura Carmine chose Downtown Playa del Carmen
Porto Playa is located 1 block from the beach, 1 block from 5th Ave., has great pools and jacuzzis, lots of amenities with tropical gardens and use off our private beach club with restaurant. Porto Playa was awarded the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor in 2016 and 2018. Featuring a tropical architectural influence with 21 luxury units, Porto Playa is set in an oasis reminiscent of a rain forest. It has a very airy and open design As you probably know, the CDC issued an order that anyone, US citizens included, entering the US beginning January 26 must produce a certified COVID-19 test result to enter the country. The test must be taken no more than 3 days prior to arrival in the US. We are proud to inform you that we offer Covid-19 tests at El Taj Ocean for our US guests who need certified test results to return to US. We offer both the Antigen (was called rapid test) and PCR test. As of January 16, 2021, the CDC only requires Antigen test. Testing is exclusively for guests of El Taj Ocean, Porto Playa, Magia Beachside, El Taj Beach, and Maya Villa. There will be a charge for the test and I don't know what the price is yet. As soon as I hear I'll let you know. You can walk north or south on the beach for at least 3 miles. There are numerous restaurants right on the beach and lots of places to get chairs, drinks, etc. You don't need a car in Playa unless you want to take day-trips to Tulum or Chichen Itza. Everyone walks to restaurants, groceries, liquor, shops,, etc. Fifth Avenue is about 3 miles long, is pedestrian only, and has open air restaurants and shopping. You can walk up and down and find a place you want to eat dinner or go shopping.
What makes this Condo unique
Porto Playa is usually ranked as one of the top 20 hotels in Playa del Carmen. No other property in Playa del Carmen has the amenities, the perfect location, the attentive staff or the architecture of Porto Playa and our sister properties: El Taj Ocean, El Taj Beach, Maya Villa and Villas Sacbe Porto Playa was awarded the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor in 2016. Featuring a tropical architectural influence with 21 luxury units, Porto Playa is set in an oasis reminiscent of a rain forest. It has a very airy and open design inside a private sanctuary with lush tropical plants and flowers and gushing waterfalls. There is even a sun-drenched roof-top swimming pool the length of a city block and a second pool with two separate Jacuzzis. Our condo has high ceilings, zoned air conditioning, ceiling fans in every room, full-sized appliances and large kitchens stocked with cookware, blender, toaster, coffee maker - everything you'd want to make you feel like it's yours and not a hotel room.. We have noodles in the condo for your use in the Gulf and/or the pool. Couple of tips: You don't need a car in Playa You only need a car if you want to go off-site for something. Even zip-lining comes and picks you up. Playa is very European - half the tourists are American, the other half are a mix from all over the world: South America, Asia and Europe. It's fun to walk 5th or be eating a meal and hearing all the different accents. Lots of different types of restaurants. You can walk to Wal-Mart or Mega from our condo-(6 blocks). I know how that might sound, but they are great stores with fresh food. We typically walk over there the first day (in the morning before it gets too hot), and buy fresh fruit, wine and snacks. We then have breakfast on our balcony. Before dinner we open up a bottle of wine and have drinks and snacks on the balcony. We've done all-inclusives and liked them, but prefer Porto Playa.
