The best room in Playa del Carmen!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to stay in Playa del Carmen! We've stayed at a luxury resort in Playa and this condo has it beat hands down. It was exactly as described. The owners think of it as their second home and it feels like a home. We traveled with another couple and were thrilled to have places to hang out together. That's something that you don't get at a hotel. The balcony is amazing! You can see all the way up and down the main part of Playa del Carmen. We enjoyed eating breakfast while looking out over the ocean. Since Playa has such wonderful restaurants, we were not interested in an all-inclusive resort. We bought breakfast food, snacks, and drinks to have at the condo and then dined out for most lunches and dinners. The full kitchen makes it easy to cook if you want to. One fun thing about the condo is the guest book. People write in their favorite things to do and places to eat. We cannot wait to go back!!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Luna Encantada C3 in January 2018. The view is spectacular, the location perfect for quick access to the shops, bars and restaurants on and around Quinta Avenida and the apartments sit on what is undoubtedly the nicest part of Playa Del Carmen beach. Great beach food/drinks service either side at Inti and Fusion. The Luna Encantada staff could not have been more helpful, special thanks to Tonya and Abigail. We'd love to come back!

Almost a perfect TEN

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Luna Encantada! The view from our 3rd floor condo was spectacular. My son-in-law said that he felt like a movie star! The beach, the ocean, the people were all perfect. The condo was clean, spacious and comfortable. We were impressed with the service we received from the caretakers of the condo. As soon as we called they came! We will go again.

Luna Encatada is one of the best condos in Playa

  • 5 of 5

This was a return trip, and Luna remains my favorite location on Playa. It was disappointing to see the Fusion Bar next door town down, but the condo itself remained totally worth it.

Uninhabitable due to loud music from bar next door!!!!

  • 1 of 5

We specifically asked before reserving if the bar was still next door and was told it was now a yoga studio. Upon arrival, we found the bar was STILL open and the incredibly loud music was awful. Beginning every day in the early afternoon and continuing into the night made sitting on the beach, the balcony, and the pool unbearable. After the music stops at the next door bar after midnight, the driving relentless bass from the techno disco a block a way makes sleeping with the doors/windows open problematic. It continues all night. So if you are looking for peace and quiet, definitely do not stay here. Otherwise, yes, this is the best balcony in Playa del Carmen, the rooftop deck an amazing amenity, if it were not for the extremely loud music. The staff all helpful and friendly (and sympathetic).

Owner's Response: When the guest reserved this condo on the northernmost side of Luna Encantada, he mentioned he had previously stayed in the unit opposite on the southernmost side and that there was a loud nightclub. That nightclub is indeed gone and was replaced roughly 4 years ago by a yoga studio. The guest refuses to believe that despite repeated attempts to explain it. On the northern side of the complex and across 6th street is a small beach bar called Fusion - it has been at that location since before Luna was built. Over the last 10 years this beach bar has by and large been a great neighbor - feeling often times like a mere extension of the condo complex. However, Fusion, in a surprise move, erected a temporary tent for 2 weeks in January that played music that was a complete departure in style from it's day to day operations. When the guest contacted me, I immediately offered to relocate him. Instead of agreeing to that, he spent 3 days "screaming" at me over email and claiming I had lied to him. Finally, he consented to being moved for the last 3 days of his vacation. He thanked me repeatedly for moving him - especially since we paid for the rent at the new location. Upon departure he demanded a full refund and threatened to trash me on VRBO, TripAdvisor, etc. This is one case where the customer refuses to believe the truth - Fusion beach bar is not the nightclub Bang he was asking about, is not even in the same location and does not play techno disco as a matter of course. The guest is using an unfortunate situation to try and reduce his agreed upon rental rate. He claims that information related to refunds during high season is buried in my rental agreement which is really anything but boilerplate as I want guests to read it completely. This property is full an average of 36-40 months a year. I have no motivation at all to misrepresent the property and have 10 years worth of guests who will dispute the erroneous claims made by this guest.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at this amazing property. This was by far the most incredible property we have ever stayed at and cannot wait to go back and see it again. We were a family of 7 staying for a full week. We had 5 adults and one teenager and at no point did we feel cramped in the condo. The apartment actually feels much bigger than the pictures are able to show. The ocean views are unobstructed on the top terrace allowing you to fully take in the paradise. We did cook at the apartment and all the appliances worked great. The owner ensured that you have all the basics like oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and such so all you need from the store is your produce and proteins. Also, they provided other basics such as dish soap, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, filtered water - all the things you would normally have at home that you now do not have to buy in bulk for a short stay. Outside the gorgeous apartment, what really made our stay a 5-star experience was the staff. The concierge and the daily complex staff were extremely nice and helpful. They went above and beyond to ensure each guest was happy and had what they needed for their comfort. Our family walked up and down the beach and each time confirmed that there is no better property than this one while staying at Playa del Carmen. The condo is gated with a code to get in so only the guests staying there are able to access the property and pool area. The walk from your complex to the 5th avenue is maybe 30 seconds tops! I don't know of any other travels I have done where you have the downtown center that close to your apartment and the beach. We rented a car one day to visit Yucatan and Chichen Itza, however, if you are staying just in Playa, you will not need a car as everything is walking distance and feels very safe. If you are looking more to see other towns 45+ minutes away, I would recommend a car. All in all, our favorite vacation so far and the best stay we have ever had.

Thank you so much to the owner and property manager. We are so grateful to have stayed there and cannot wait to go back. Seriously, we already started planning our next family visit.
