This elegantly furnished Condo is your best vacation value in Playacar. We have the best location!

While others have to drive there, All you have to do is walk across the street! Besides being a high quality home with many amenities, our location can simply not be beat. It is next to Playacar Golf Club, on the Golf Course Fairway, and walking distance to Playa del Carmen Downtown and 5th Avenue restaurants and shops. Renters have ready access to Beach Club and Golf. It features 2 master bedrooms, each with a King Size bed and its own bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen, washer, and dryer. Balcony overlooks pool and golf course.

About Oscar Subirats
My father (Jaime) purchased this condo thinking he and my mother would retire there. My father passed away, and Instead me and my wife lived in it for 9 years. We now live in Florida, but maintain the condo with high quality standards so that others can enjoy this beautiful place that my father had the vision to purchase back in 1998 with an envious location.
Oscar Subirats purchased this Condo in 1998
Why Oscar Subirats chose Playa del Carmen
The property is like being in Paradise, it is located in the best place and the maintenance is excellent. You will enjoy the large and usually quiet pool. Also, in comparison to many other rental properties, we try to make the place feel like a second home and not a "rental". Finally, being in front of the Hotel Reef, it is like having the best of both worlds. You can have the "hotel" feel, amenities, and pool by simply walking across the street to the Hotel Reef, which provides free access to renters, or you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of your own place at the condo. You can even decide to have an "all inclusive" day, which can be purchased for an additional fee, directly from the Hotel Reef across the street, or simply enjoy a quiet home cooked meal back "home" at the condo. You have a lot of flexibility with our difficult to beat location.

This complex is right across the street from the Reef Beach club. For those who want to hit the beach in Playacar you just can’t get a closer to the beach! A 15 min walk gets you into Playa del Carmen and some excellent restaurants. Taxis are plentiful if you don’t feel like walking. Playacar has lovely wide sidewalks that make walking super pleasant.
Unit is well appointed. We especially enjoyed the comfortable beds and loved the luxury bedding. In our experience rough sheets seem to be the norm in Mexico and were thrilled st the lovely soft sheets.
There is a fantastic pool in the complex that we found was rarely used. 3 of the 5 days we used the pool we were the only ones using it all day long
Overall, another really great stay in PDC
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our wonderful home. We look forward to having you in the future.
Really excellent condo. Very well equipped and excellent location. We loved our stay and the privacy. Beautiful exposure from the deck to the pool. Gorgeous gardens!
Very nice Condo
Stayed here in Dec 2016 and had a very pleasant stay. Condo is very nice, close to the beach, everything you may need. Nice and quiet as well. Access to The Reef Resort was a plus. It's right across the street. Be there by 8:50 a.m. to get a wrist band and then enjoy their beach, towels, and pool. The other plus, for us, was the washer dryer. I prefer to stay in a rental for this main reason. There is a new w/d and I did laundry every day.
Only 2 minor things that could help out...supply more towels for a family of four. And perhaps a hair dryer. Other than that anything we needed we bought at the local grocery store (MEGA).
Linda. Thank you so much for your review. We will certainly take your suggestions to improve our home for guests. Thank you again, and hopefully we will see you back.
El Capitan Visits the Condo
Well, El Capitan and his crew decided on a condo this time - and Oscarino was good enough to consider us for his unit. Thank You Thank You Thank You Oscar. The unit was amazing - very comfortable - like being at home. The Capitan was in the front bedroom - and everything was great. Lots of closet and dresser space - and a nice big room. The location of this condo is amazing - right across the street from the Reef which we used almost daily for the beach. The Reef people treated us fantastic - and we got to know them since we stayed 2 weeks. We met other renters at the condo - and other owners as well. The pool turned out to be a nice late afternoon meeting place for renters that were out for the day and came back to have a brewski and relax. The unit has everything you need - start your coffee early because the coffee maker runs on Mexican time. A maid came in three times a week - and for water we just left the jugs out with the appropriate payment. There is a security guard there all night - awesome. If you are a light sleeper you may want to take the master bedroom - the one at the front is basically on the street and does get a little traffic noise. All in all a great vacation at a great location - it doesn't get much better. One thing would be nice - a working BBQ - that's about all that is missing. Once again, thank you Oscar - we'll be speaking with you again soon.
Great place for a holiday
First of all Oscar has a great home in Playacar. It is clean and comfortable. We stayed April 1st to 15th 2016 and was everything as advertised. The easy access to the Reef Playacar across the street was awesome (must be there by 9am to ensure entry ). They only allow 20 resident cards a day and 4 people to a card. Lots of grocery stores close by and restaurants for supper if you don't want to cook. The cleaning lady was there 5 times in two weeks and does a fantastic job. All in all a great spot and definitely will return. Thanks Oscar will be in touch. Much appreciated Kevin Mancuso and Breda Prah.
Wonderful quiet escape
We stayed March 22nd to the 29th 2016. The property was just as described, very well kept and clean. We had everything we needed to prepare food. Sam's Club is just minutes away by cab. The condo is close enough to walk to Playa. The public beach access is just a few minutes walk from the condo, and it was less crowded then the beach and the Reef Club, just bring towels or chairs as there are not chairs to sit on at the public beach. The pool was wonderful and well kept. There were never more then four or five other people at the pool at one time so it was very private. The grounds around the condo are also very well kept and clean. The housekeeper was great and did a wonderful job. We had one issue with one of the shower handles not working, but the owner had someone there within an hour and had it fixed.
We went to the Reef Club to get beach access for the day and had no problem, but soon found out that if we wanted to leave for any reason we had to "check out" and turn in our bracelets. We were not able to come and go during the day once we had our bracelets. If we wanted to come back it would depend on how many residents were checked in as they only allow 20 resident cards per day. The Reef Club was nice and the beach was comfortable with plenty of seating.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing at home feel who wants to escape the hotel scene.
Tyler, Thank you for your review and I am so glad that you enjoyed our home. I am sorry that you had that situation with the Reef Club. Unfortunately, that week was the week of Easter, which is perhaps the busiest vacation week in Mexico with many locals on vacation. It is probably as busy as Christmas or New Years. I have heard that the Reef Club limits access on weeks that are extremely in high demand such as Easter, Christmas, and New Years, and I have not had reports from other guests having this issue. Again, out of our control, abut hopefully this policy was only in place for that week. Anyway, hope to have you back, hopefully in a less busy week!
THIS IS THE BEST LOCATION! ACROSS THE STREET FROM BEACH CLUB THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY THE BEACH, BECAUSE THERE IS NO PARKING AND IN BUSY PERIODS THE BEACH CLUB MAY RESTRICT ACCESS TO PEOPLE ARRIVING NO LATER THAN 9.00AM. IT IS NEXT TO PLAYACAR GOLF CLUB, ON THE GOLF COURSE FAIRWAY AND WALKING DISTANCE TO PLAYA DEL CARMEN DOWNTOWN AND 5TH AVENUE RESTAURANTS. FANTASTIC POOL AND GARDENS. RENTERS HAVE READY ACCESS TO BEACH CLUB AND GOLF. LOCAL TOURS OF MAYAN RUINS AND ECHOLOGICAL GARDENS AVAILABLE AT BEACH CLUB.
