About the property

2 bedroom / 2 bath unit, 50 steps from the beach, perfect for 2-4 people

El Nido as we affectionately call it, or The Nest, is your home away from home. Enjoy the ocean views of the Caribbean and be on the beach in 100 steps. Spread your wings and fly to folkloric art shops, high fashion or eco-tourism, and cultural theme parks :) Our penthouse condo serves as the hub of your tropical vacation. We are centrally located within walking distance to world class resturants, nightlife, shopping and people watching on La Quinta Avenue one block away. For those more adventurous, there are Eco-Reserves and Archaeological sites to explore in the region.

What most people love is that we have privacy and a lot of space, roughly 700 sqft interior and 700 sqft exterior. There are 2-bedrooms & 2-baths. It is perfect for couples that like their own space, or enough room to host friends and family. El Nido has several outdoor areas good for morning yoga or sun worshiping, either on the lower balcony or rooftop terrace. Up on the rooftop palapa you'll find the hammocks, which are everyone's favorites.

The interior is well appointed with Tommy Bahama furniture. There is a couch for relaxing or for reading a good book. The door between the bedrooms is extra thick for sound proofing and privacy. There is also a kitchenette and a refrigerator for cooking meals or snacks. Both rooms have a microwave and coffee set. There is a table to gather for a meal, or for playing cards.

Outside you have a private balcony with a table and seating for 4. Further up on the rooftop you have a another private terrace with a second table and seating for 4 more. The rooftop terrace is great for sunbathing on the 4 lounge chairs.

For a truly relaxing experience the rooftop palapa provides shade from the sun. The hammocks swing and lull you to sleep in the cool ocean breeze.

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

My family of three really enjoyed our trip to Playa del Carmen. The condo fit our needs - the beds were comfy and there was plenty of space. The only thing I'd caution about is the stairs. If you have any fear of heights, you might not like the two story spiral staircase - it scared me the first few times but then I got used to it. The area around the condo is full of life. You can walk to tons of restaurants and shops and we enjoyed just strolling around on Quinta Avenida. The beach closest to us wasn't swim-able (at the Indigo beach club) because there are boats tied up in the water. Our favorite beach club was Kool, which is next to Mamitas. Definitely visit La Famiglia and La Parrilla! Fantastic food.

Best of Playa

  • 4 of 5

A bit outdated in decor, but the location is perfect. Less than a block to beach, pool with enough space and sun, quieter than other accomodation and definately the 2 levels of outdoor patios is tops. Cool breeze on top with views of ocean. Great get away. Space emough for 4 adults, its our 2nd stay this year.

We loved the location and the top patio hammocks! It is a 3rd floor suite with a metal spiral staircase, so if you have a hard time with stairs, be advised. The view is worth it though if this is not an issue.

Perfect location....

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Palms. We were able to easily walk to the beach or 5th Avenue for shopping or dining. We loved relaxing on the roof top terrace; the hammocks were amazing and you could always catch an ocean breeze. It was just as advertised and we were not disappointed. Thank you for a great week and making our first visit to Playa del Carmen a pleasant one.

Nice with a great view

  • 4 of 5

This was the unit we stayed in for the first week in Playa Del Carmen with another couple. We were a little surprised that one of the bedrooms were in the kitchen/living room. Our mistake, if you look at the pictures closely you can tell. We had a refrigerator die on us but Hans, the on site manager was on it and took care of us. I couldn't ask for anything more from Hans the on site manager. He went out of his way to make sure things were good. The units are not new, however in pretty good shape. The roof top vista is the nicest of the complex and the beds were comfortable. The biggest down side was the spiral stairs, it is not easy carrying luggage up spiral stairs; but there is no changing this, it is what it is. The other is the kitchen. If you think you can cook a nice meal...well, we ended up going out to eat everyday. No oven, laundry and a two burner hot plate of a stove. The refrigerator (very important) was nice but small. The pool was wonderful, the other guests 95%, were great. Only once did we encounter late night loud behavior. Nice location but the cab drivers had a hard time finding it. I would rent here again!
