Beautiful condo, exactly as described with lots to offer!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Penthouse for 5 days and could not have found a better condo or location for that matter. Minutes to the beach and 5th Avenue, both Laura and Viviane were amazing and very knowledgable when it came to Playa del Carmen. I would recommend this condo to anyone who would like to be in walking distance to both the beach and 5th Ave.

Wonderful stay through and through!

Where to begin? From the moment we booked this condo to the moment we left, it was all a positive experience! Laura was quick to respond to me at the beginning when we were looking for a place in Playa Del Carmen and answered all our many questions both by email and by phone. The property manager Viviane is a lovely woman who arranged transportation for us to and from the airport, which went off without a hitch. She met us at the property and showed us through and answered all our many initial questions about the condo, and where to buy groceries, the beach, 5th Avenue, etc. She also arranged tours for us and any time we had questions, she was just a text away. Her response was always immediate!

The condo is just as it appears in the pictures. It was clean and well equipped with everything that we needed. The very best part of course is the roof top deck! We enjoyed our morning coffee up there as well as many evening happy hours! The BBQ that is up there worked great and we used it for almost every meal that we cooked. This is also a quiet and secure building which was great.

We were in this condo for a month. When we first arrived the beaches were great with a bit of seaweed showing up but by the time we left it was terrible on the beach. As a result we spent quite a bit of time at the rooftop pool, where we met many return renters and other unit owners. They were all welcoming and friendly and we felt a part of the "group" by the time we left. As an aside, I understand the sea grass issue is starting to abate. I also understand this is an issue in many Caribbean countries this year - it is not just exclusive to Mexico.

As mentioned, we were in the condo for a month. We walked along the beach and/or 5th Avenue almost every day. It is very convenient to everything. We also walked down 10th Avenue quite a bit as there are some fabulous restaurants along there. At NO time did we feel unsafe (even after the explosion on the Cozumel ferry). There is a police presence all along the main tourist areas and the beach all day and the nights which made us comfortable with being in those areas. We never hesitated to go out at night. There are many very good restaurants and bars within walking distance of this condo. The only time we took a taxi was to return from Mega or Walmart with groceries.

I can't say enough good things about this condo, it's owner Laura and it's manager, Viviane. We will definitely be back!

Great location and roof top space

  • 4 of 5

Overall really enjoyed the condo. Laura and Vivienne were really great to deal with and were very helpful. The roof top patio was wonderful and we used it a lot. The kitchen and bathrooms were a little dated. The condo lacked some amenities like beach chairs and beach umbrellas. The condo was very clean and bright with nice air flow. The cleaning service was thorough and timely. The building was safe with security that was always visible and friendly. Would recommend it to anyone and would definitely come back.

Quiet, convenient, well appointed, great concierge.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our two adult daughters spent a week at this property over the Christmas holiday, 2017. Previously we had stayed at resorts in the area and rarely left the resort properties. We are so glad we tried something new. The location is perfect for walking anywhere in the shopping, restaurant, and beach areas of Playa. It is about two blocks off of 5th Avenue, the main pedestrian only walking street that runs north-south parallel to the beach. It is close enough to the tourist areas to enjoy them easily, and far enough away that it is quiet at night. The condo was perfectly furnished and comfortable and clean. They even had a mid-week cleaning service. Best of all is the concierge, Viviane. She is full of good recommendations and advice about the area, can arrange transportation and excursions, and is a great problem solver!

Phenomenal Place!

  • 5 of 5

I'm just back from 5 nights in Playa del Carmen with my two adult sons and we had a fabulous stay at The Meridian! The condo feels new and is wonderfully maintained. The building is safe, has private security and was perfectly located for our needs as we use the beach clubs in Playa during the day, browse 5th Avenue at night and retreat to the peaceful tranquility of Coco Beach at the very north end of Playa for a quiet night’s sleep. This particular unit offers so many amenities, if you have food & beverages you really don’t need to leave the property. The kitchen is well provisioned and we made breakfast almost every day. The living spaces are generous and provided ample room for us to eat, drink, and relax watching Apple TV. The A/C and wifi worked flawlessly and the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. An in-unit washer & dry is always a plus but the huge bonus with this unit is the roofdeck and rooftop swimming pool! Accessed from inside the condo, private stairs lead to your own huge roofdeck offering a covered sofa/seating area, a tiled wet bar, a thatched-roof dining area, 2 chaises, a hot tub, powder room and an outdoor shower (that I used every day)! In addition, through a locked gate you have access to the building’s rooftop swimming pool, many sun chaises and bathrooms. We spent much of our time up there.

Viviane and Laura were excellent hosts! Communication before and during our stay was flawless and extremely prompt, and they provided excellent correspondence in-advance of our stay. Viviane met us at the building upon arrival and was always accessible during our stay. She even arranged our private transportation to & from the airport. This is fabulous place to stay when you’re in Playa, and a very well maintained and run property. I’m excited to bring my girlfriend back next year!
