Wonderful with easy access to beach and downtown

  • 5 of 5

We would return to stay at the same apartment when we return to Playa del Carmen. Secure, clean, fully-equipped apartment with a pool, AC, kitchen and washer-dryer. Everything you would want to do or visit while in Playa del Carmen is within an easy walk. Taxis to Xcaret and other parks are easily accessible.

This was our second two week stay at this condo. To start, the owner Walter is very easy to work with and very accommodating. The property manager on site Liza is there for any need you may have during your stay. It is in a very secure location with 24 hour security. It is a very well maintained gated community. It is one block from 5th avanue and two very easy blocks to wonderful beaches. The pool and grounds are simply amazing. The only downside is..... Having to leave. I highly recommend this condo for your next holiday. My family and I will be counting the days until our next stay.

Great Central Location to Call Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a month in March/April 2016 and it was very happy with the condo. A great location with 5th Avenue just steps away. 5 minute walk to Wal Mart or Mega, OXXO for groceries and supplies or to catch a collectivo to other destinations. Very well updated, everything you need if you want to cook at home or go to the beach! Great pool/lounge area that the little kids enjoyed every afternoon. Everyone from Walter, Liz (the manager) and Marcelo helped make our stay amazing and easygoing! A safe secure place to call home if you want to enjoy all that Playa has to offer whether it's your first or 15th time. Looking forward to coming back soon!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this condo for two weeks in August. It felt like our home away from home. It's very well maintained, updated and close to everything. The property is very secure and we never felt unsafe at anytime. The pool and grounds are simply perfect. Walter, the owner, was very easy to work with as well and we had no problems. We hope to return one day soon!
