Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: My husband and I have been going to Playa since 1993, it is our favorite beach in the world. We have a couple of condos we rent out in El Taj Ocean, Porto Playa, Maya Villa, Villas Sacbe and El Taj Beach. All are either on the beach or within 100 steps from the beach in the Premier Zone. All are within 1 - 1.5 blocks from 5th Avenue, the heart of Playa. You can see pictures and reviews from our guests at my web site. Whenever we are offered a discount, I pass that discount on to our guests.

Why Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
We have been lucky enough to travel to beaches in all parts of the world: Australia, the French Riviera, the Italian Riviera, California, Florida, Indonesia, etc. We love Playa because it is so beautiful and so international. Tourists come from Europe, South America, Russia, Canada, as well as the US.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Complimentary beach chairs, Wi-Fi, use of The Gym, located at Porto Playa, daily maid service, 24 hour front desk, 24 hour security, concierge service, best location. We have 5 properties located within a block of each other. El Taj Ocean (on the water), El Taj Beach (across the street from El Taj Ocean), Porto Playa, Maya Villa, and Villas Sacbe. All guests at all properties receive the same ammenities. They are the best run, most beautiful properties in Playa. There are 3 restaurants for guests. All the conveniences of having a condo combined with all the benefits of staying in a hotel. Properties are in the Premier Zone of Playa (between Juarez and Constituyentes), which means you can walk everywhere and don't need a car (although we also have complimentary parking in each building).
