First I would like to say Carlos and his crew were fantastic!! Anything we needed they were there.
As far as the property is concerned it is truly run down not atiqute for six people.
First in the kitchen curtain rods on the windows with no curtains.
Only 4 bowls and 4 plates only 4 forks available.
An entryway table was used as an dining table only 5 chairs that did not fit the table.
Coach and love seat extremely dirty and worn.
Beds like rocks a spring in the back with every move. Pillows flat like pancakes.
Overall very dirty!! We had the cleaning person come in the next morning upon our arrival.
Very disappointed with the money spent on this property.
Pictures are deceiving not at all like what is seen in person.
Spend your money elsewhere.
Lovely place, good location.
Villa is very comfortable & walking distance to Playa del Carmen. Very close to beautiful Playacar beach. Lovely pool area that was cleaned when asked. Few little improvements for suggestion - kitchen/outside front lights didn’t work, basic condiments would have been useful, rooms a little musty but clean.
Manager was very responsive & we enjoyed our stay Thankyou.
Hola Kim, thank you for your comments, we are glad you enojoyed your stay.
We will take care of the lights today, and we will go to get some condiments, its a great idea!
Hope to have you back :)
Great location! Villa needs some TLC
Great location! It worked for our family of 6.
The shared pool was cold and didn't get a lot of sun exposure.
The house was very dated and could use some TLC. There were cock roaches! The shower temperature fluctuates with out notice and the water pressure was not much more then a trickle. Mosquitoes bring repellent.
We would stay again
Thanks for your comments; one of the advantages of the pool and the hammock deck/BBQ area is that its surrounded by large trees, the pool gets half sun and half shadow by the trees, we found it comforting after long hours at the beach with the sun.
We apologize for the cock roach and mosquitos, as we are surrounded by nature unfortunately this can happen; for the mosquitos we use the mosquito net door to avoid them at the house, and for the cock roaches we recommend to avoid leaving open food, next time you are at the villa you can call for the handy man, Amir, he has an special insecticide, and can take care of the problem.
Im sorry for your inconvinience with the shower, the handle is single-lever and it is very sensitive for any change, please the next time you stay with us, Amir the handy man, is outside your villa and he would be very happy to help you timely with any issue you may have.
We appreciate your comments and will work on them, we are glad overall you liked the location and would stay again, hope to have you back!
1. About 5 -10 mins to the beginning of the 5th street. Food, exchange currency, Taxi line, ADO, ferry
2. One minute to Beach
3. Cleaning lady come every other day.
4. Water provided
5. Carlos responded very quickly to the maintenance request.
6. They have cool AC and fans!
Things to be improved:
1. The kitchen electric appliances are out- dated. Toaster , coffee machine shall be retired.
$50-100 investment could change the look, toaster, coffee pot, electric water pot?
2. Shower water tend to change hot/ cold unexpected.
3. Beach accessories needed, sun umbrella, etc
Overall a good experience, for such great location and space, I would recommend to my friends.
Thanks for your coments they are very precise and will help to other travelers.
Im glad you had a good time and enjoyed the beach, for us is the most important point.
Thanks for your recomendations we will do the changes you suggest.
we hope see you soon
A slice of heaven!
If you are going to Playa del Carmen with small children, Playacar 1 is the place to be.
This villa has everything you will need and more to enjoy your vacation, 2 big bedroom with comfortable beds (if you like firm beds, these mattresses are heaven!), AC in each room and main living area, and a cool refreshing pool right there. The villa is located only 100 steps from the sand, and about 5/10 min walk to town. You might opt to rent or not a car but it is not necessary. Most of the stuff you want is within walking distance, and if you want to explore further take a cheap taxi ride or ADO buses. The beaches here are perfect, not crowded at all (like hotel beaches where you are rubbing elbows while sunbathing!).
The villa is surrounding by mature jungle like trees, which is beautiful, but be aware there are several creatures that will visit your patio every morning (raccoon like animals, squirrels, iguana, geckos, etc). they are friendly and they are more scared from humans that we are from them.
We had an small issue with the refrigerator and the local management took care of it immediately. It is cool to have management on site!
One piece of advice. Buy plenty of mosquito repellent, and spray it on you before you leave the house mostly after dawn. Inside the house it is not an issue if you keep the mosquito screens closed .
Overall it’s a perfect experience.
HI Daniel, we really aprecciate your coments
Me and my family stayed here in low season for 5 nights, it was definitely worth that price and we had a lovely stay. It is very close to the town, a 5-10min pretty walk through gardens and some ruins, or you can walk on the private road. We felt very safe as there are security patrolling all the streets at all hours. It is a sort of gated village of villas along the beach. And 2 minutes walk to the beach which is all white sand and amazing turquoise water.
They have a great big BBQ which we used one night, which was great.
We loved the sound of wildlife in the very lush tropical beautiful garden.
The internet is annoying as only works in a corner of the villa or if you stand in the garden. Bring mosquito repellent.
I would recommend this villa.
