About Bjoern Koch

I actually live in Playa Del Carmen. As I have fallen in love with this place, the local people and the easy in and out from Cancun International Airport. After many years living in Park City -Utah and Cabo San Lucas I love the Mayan Riviera, the international flair, the many activities and of course who can beat the Caribbean waters. Originally from Germany but for almost 17 years now living partially or full time in Mexico

Bjoern Koch purchased this condo in 2007

Great property & space, needs alittle TLC

  • 4 of 5

Owner response was fantastic. Great communication leading up to stay, gave us a cell number in case and gave restaurant recommendations. Location great being a block from the beach and a block from the main pedestrian walkway and we loved the complex, the space available and layout of the condo. It was also nice to be able to visit the gym next door and get discounts at certain restaurants. The only suggestion I have is some things in the condo need alittle TLC. The window treatments are pretty cheap and in poor shape. Some lamps were staged with no bulb and no outlet to plug them in, as if only for photos. The dryer never worked (and we were too busy to wait for someone to come fix it) and there was a kitchen sink leak. All very easily fixed things, again perfect condo structure, just some TLC inside would make it 5 stars.

Great Location and Great Unit

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Porto Playa 207 during December of 2016! The unit was perfect for a group of five people, with two bedrooms with queen size beds and one with a large king. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a week in Playa Del Carmen. The location is perfect! It is less than a block away from the primary location for shops, restaurants and entertainment in the area, and less than a mile from both large grocery stores (Walmart and Mega). One of the best restaurants we found during our stay was in the same building, just downstairs. Our other favorite was less than two blocks away, and there were many more to choose from. The rooftop deck was great, and we spent New Year’s Eve enjoying the hot tub and watching the fireworks! It was perfect. The owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. He helped a great deal with our shuttle to and from the airport, and rescheduled things quickly when our flights were cancelled by the airline. I would stay here again and would recommend the unit to anyone visiting the area!

A five star condo ,with the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Porto Playa is THE tourist destination to stay in for a good time in Playa del Carmen ! Specificly my family of 5 stayed in our condo, there were three spacious bedrooms that have plenty of space for luggage and comfy furniture to relax in. The kitchen has a ton of new appliances and everything you could possibly need, it really felt like a home away from home.. Only in paradise and stress free ! Theres a cleaning crew that tidies up the condo when you indicate on a panel outside the door to do so, because who wants to make their bed on vacation? Not me ! In addition to, dealing with the rental owner was easy , convenient and we received fast responses. The owner was very personable, checked in with us and made sure everything is super and that we were having a good time. This condo was a great pick i could never regret, the location was perfect, the beach was within walking distance , the bars, clubs, restraunts and gift shops were literally a street over , hardly any need to grab a taxi ! I give this condo 5 stars ! I'll be back Porto Playa (:

Porto Playa is a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Porto Playa is a great place to stay when in Playa. It is ideally located between 5th avenue and the beach. There are many great restaurants within a short walking distance so there is no need for a car. Easy access to anywhere you want to go including Mega and Walmart. The condo is as beautiful as the pictures show and is very spacious. It has outstanding amenities, exceptionally clean, well maintained and the size as well as layout of it provides a great deal of privacy inside and outside the condo including for those staying in the condo itself. There are two primary levels with a large open penthouse area and hot tub. There is also a first class fitness gym with excellent staff right out the front entrance. Having traveled to Playa many times, this condo in Porto Playa is a fabulous choice for us when it is available. The customer service has always been outstanding and the people and staff are friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to make our stay a pleasant one. The owner is always eager to hear how our stay is going and is attentive to making sure our vacation is worry free. We highly recommend this property and is our #1 choice!

Perfect Condo for 6 people.

  • 5 of 5

The condo that we stayed at was designed and laid out very well. Everything was was in great shape. Every room had its own TV's, Stereo's, Safe, and very comfortable beds. The condo is located in a perfect location for walking to 5th Avenue and the heart of Playa del Carmen. I was very impressed with the condo and property, this was by far the nicest that I have stayed atin Playa. The roof top hot tub gets very warm. The staff at the property were outstanding and went out of their way with any question or request we had. The owner of the condo (Bjoern) went shopping for grocery items before we arrived and everything was bought as anticipated. I would highly recommend working with Bjoern and staying at his condo.

Since the Property is located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera Porto Playa is perfectly located for day trips to Chichen Itza, Coba or Tulum to visit one of the local Ruins. from May to Septemebr you can go and swim with the Whale Sharks in Nearby HolBox or Isla Mujeres. Amazing cavern Dive opportunities are also very special for the region. But the most amazing thing are the local people , there are happy, there are welcoming and there are very glad that we are visiting the Area.
