Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2.5 bath Luxury Duplex with Rooftop pool. Perfect for groups and fam

This is a beautifully Modern Luxurious condo in the perfect location in Playa. It is perfectly located on the North side of playa on Coco beach. It is a 7 minute walk to Little Italy and Mamitas Beach. The condo has arguably the best rooftop pool in Playa! It is 2 blocks from the Beach. Canibal Royal one of trendiest beach club is a stone throw away, and the world famous Mamitas Beach is a short 7 minute walk.

The condo has 2 large Bedrooms and full bath in each. Each room has a King size bed, and 50 inch and 42 inch tv with all the channels you can imagine. This condo is a duplex with a loft as well. The loft has a futon and pulls out another queen bed. We also have blow up mattress that is a queen. Each bedroom has a bose radio for your IPOD to hook up to.

The living room has L shaped sofa, and 50 inch plasma. It also has BOSE sound machine. We have marble kitchen table that seats 6.

The kitchen has all the utensils , dishes, plates etc, that you can imagine to cook anything you want. However, if you have been to Playa, then you most likely will walk on 5th ave and enjoy one of the many restaurants.

We also have a private garage, and private entrance from the garage that enters the apt. We also just bought a outside sofa to relax right outside the condo where you can lay down to read a book, have a drink, and just hang out with your friends and family. A unique area not many other condos have.

We have 6 beach chairs, umbrellas , plenty of large beach towels, that you can take directly to the beach with coolers for your use so you can take your food and drinks right to the beach.

This is the only duplex in DEVA that has a half bath. We custom made a half bath were the Washer /Dryer was and moved that to the loft to make the condo more practical to larger guests and so your guests don't have to use the bathrooms in the bedrooms.

Air conditioners are in every room and work great. We have a large 5 gallon fresh water cooler for you so you always have fresh water.

I am a tennis pro so I leave tennis rackets, balls, and even ones you can use on the beach. Plus some kids balls too.

The condo is walkable to everything and just far enough away from the some of the loud nightlife, and party scene so it is the best of both worlds.

About Michael Dowd

I have been going to Playa for 8 years now as my home away from home, and 6 years ago, I decided to buy a condo here. I bought it with a good friend I went to college with. We use it about once a month, and I just get giddy when I think of Playa. We are just now for the first time this attempting to share our condo for others to enjoy. I live in New York city and work in the Tennis management. Tennis Anyone?!

Michael Dowd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Michael Dowd chose Zazil-ha

I was going to playa for 4 years before I bought this playa including a full winter, so I know Playa very well. I chose DEVA on Coco Beach because its close and walkable to everything, but you are still far away from the nightlife and sometimes loud party parts of Playa if you want some peace and quite. DEVA also has one of the best rooftop pools in the city. There are only 24 units and usually we have the whole rooftop to ourselves. Also our condo is unique being a Duplex. There are very few condos that has this layout and makes it absolutely unique and beautiful.

What makes this condo unique

You are 2 block to the beach.

You are 2 blocks to the the Beach club Canibal Royal

You are a 7 minute walk to the world famous Mamitas Beach

2 minute walk to 5th ave.

Rooftop pool and with underground parking

You don't need a car/taxi, but at the same time you can enjoy quiet time, and are close enough to the nightlife and best restaurants in playa.

Relaxing Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything to make a vacation comfortable .... sheets/towels/a bunch of beach chairs/cooler/toilet paper/laundry detergent/pots/pans/ you name it! Who wants to pack all that and fly thousands of miles? Flat screens in both large bedrooms and in both upstairs and downstairs living rooms! And it had great location near a bunch of Oxxo convenience stores, and just at the end of the 5th ave strip which allowed for a quick walk to restaurants and the beach without all the noise and chaos. The property managers were just up the street which was also very convenient. I hope we still get 23 pesos to the dollar when we return - for the Caribbean, mexico is the best! We had a great time, and would definitely return.

Good location - good service

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Playa. The location is great. The apartment was cleaned and in good condition, coffee maker and one tv didn't work, but the support and help from Geraldine and Coco beach tour was really good. I would come back.

Clean, comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Playa del Carmen and this condo was a great place to stay! We were met on our arrival by Geraldine who gave us the keys and showed us the condo. They have a tablet in the condo with an app that you can communicate directly with Geraldine during your stay. We texted that one of the air conditioner remotes needed new batteries and she had it fixed right away. She gave us tour and restaurant ideas as well. The condo itself was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. It had a very modern, clean feel to it. The beds were also very comfortable. The condo is located about a block away from 5th avenue. The street was very quiet, but the walk was quick to 5th with shops and restaurants. We were given passes to the Martina beach club which is about a 2 minute walk down the street and that was a nice way to spend an afternoon under an umbrella on a lounge chair with a margarita watching the kids build a sandcastle. Every evening we would come home from our excursions and spend an hour or so on the rooftop deck at the pool. The view is amazing from the roof and the kids loved playing in the pool. It was a great way to relax and we met some great people too! We would definitely recommend this condo.

Extremely nice and comfortable modern condo with everything you might need!Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay with my family. Everything was very clean and ready for us to move in. The condo has two levels and on each level there is a large bedroom with a shower which was supper convenient. We liked that the condo is in a very quit street and yet very close to the main street with all the restaurants and shops as well some of the best beaches at Playa del Carmen. The roof top also has a very nice pool with a hot tub which was perfect for evenings watching the sunset. On top of everything Michael and Gary were supper nice making sure we are happy with our stay. I would definitely go there again! Highly recommend you go and see it yourself!

Nice stay but not perfect

  • 4 of 5

We liked our stay her but are unsure if we would do this same trip again. Overall the unit was as described on the VRBO site. The property was spacious, clean, and comfortable and the location was close to tourist zone and beach. We had ample time to wind down and enjoyed the roof top pool which was quiet and relaxing.

There were a few issues. The Internet was down much of our stay though it was repaired and working better in the end. My family was not in a position to be without connection so this was a bit of a hassle. Also, the air conditioning went out on our second to last day which caused some uncomfort. The hot tub on the roof was broken the whole time and the pool had a couple of days where you could not see the bottom.

The other issue had nothing to do with this specific property but all of Riviera Maya. During this trip the coast line was experiencing some kind of sea grass invasion. All of the beaches were covered in piles of this grass which you had to walk and then swim in. They were hauling it out with front loaders and dump trucks. Nobody seemed to know why this invasion is occurring thus unable to predict when it will go ahead. I would want to be assured this was taken care of before going back.

All in all we had a great ten days with our family though I am unsure I would do this exact same trip again.
