This nice condo is in the perfect location, close to the beach area and also for the famous "fifth ave" in downtown.(1 minute walking distance to the clubs & 2 minutes walk to the white sandy beach)

The owner is very friendly, helpful who speaks English &Spanish. I don't think you can ever find a better host than him.

¡Señor Donato, we are really appropriate you!

All You Need To Enjoy Some Time in the Heart of Playa del Carmen

  • 4 of 5

We have been to Resorts in the region several times but had never stayed in Playa itself. We wrestled on this trip with staying in Playa the first week then a week in a 5 Star or the reverse ... we settled on the reverse and stayed in this Condo from a March 7th to 14th. The weather didn’t cooperate but we made the best of it as the Owner Donato provided us with access to the Evolve Gym close by. We also tried out the Indigo Beach Club as Donato has an arrangement that they will give discounted rates on their food and drinks.

The Condo itself is functional, clean and well located. The WiFi was great, the shower took a bit to heat up but was fine, and the kitchen okay for cooking smaller meals; typically we ate our daily breakfast and lunch there and cooked dinner for ourselves on 3 of the nights. Restaurants abound and a few that we really liked and were easy to walk to were El Fogon for Mexican fare and Oh LaLa for a more Romantic upscale evening.

The only thing that is truly missing is a place to hang or place your clothes; we used the outside table and chairs for this but a small dresser, shelves or shelving unit, or even a make shift hanging rack would do the trick! The only other suggestion for travelers that will be using the kitchen is if some simple condiments like salt & pepper, sugar, and oil were already provided; We appreciated the dish soap detergent that was provided! A 4 block walk to the Mega which has virtually everything you will need including pre-cooked meals and Cerzesas!

Yes ... there is a monster building under construction across the street and music played until all hours of the morning ... but ... you are in the heart of Playa, steps from the ocean, and the price is right!

Nice stay for the price

  • 4 of 5

First the good - The owner and property manager communicated in English very well and were VERY responsive from the moment of booking to departure. We had a small plumbing issue and with a simple message it was all fixed before we got back for the day.

The location is right between the beach and 5th Ave. Easily less than 3 minute walk to all of the activity. Right next door to Phantom Divers for diving or snorkeling adventures. Too many fantastic restaurants and bars to even hope to try them all. We ate with several locals at the small restaurant right downstairs several times and the food is amazing. Very easy access to tour guides or grab your own fishing or diving boat right on the beach. Easy walk to two ferry docks to Cozumel or Isla Mujeres.

The less than perfect include the incredibly loud bar that thumped bass until 4AM that shook the windows, the huge construction project across the street started with jackhammers at 5AM. This is a good place if you just need a crash pad after bar hopping all night, but less than desirable for a 50+ that would like to sleep between midnight and 7AM. There is no place to just relax inside, basically a concrete box with bed, stove, shower, and toilet. The fixtures and paint are decaying, the tile in the bathroom and kitchenette were hastily applied and never finished, no hooks to hang wet towels, paint splatter on all the railings and fixtures Not a deal breaker, but detracted from the overall experience. But this is not a $300 USD a night stay either.

Beaches in the area are very small, the resorts claim them almost right to water, tough to find any shade or beach to relax on.

I wouldn't rent this property again just because of all the night noise from the MANY nearby clubs, but that might be just what you are looking for. Also a great crash pad if you just want to dive all day for a few days and have easy access beaches, great food and drink.

Overall, we felt very safe and comfortable in the condo and walking the town at all hours. We even walked to the Walmart 1/2 Mile away (about 20 Minutes) and took a $5 USD taxi back with all our drinks and some groceries for the week.

I can't say enough about the how well the owner and property manager were to work with. Have a great breakfast on the beach at the Indigo.

The noise was a big problem for me.

  • 3 of 5

It's a nice little studio on the second floor, with a balcony looking down on the street. The bed was good, the air conditioner quiet, and all the appliances worked. Bath towels were supplied, but no wash cloths. The walk in shower was big, while the water closet with toilet and small vanity, was tiny. I could not sit straight on the toilet, without my knees hitting the vanity. I read the reviews about the construction noise a crossed the street, but that is not nearly the main noise problem. There are 3 open air nightclubs a half block away, that seem to compete with having the loudest dance music. With the doors closed and drapes drawn, you can't escape the boom, boom, boom of the bass, until they stop at 4AM! My soft ear plugs were of little help, you will need industrial hearing protection here to escape the noise. I would have rated this a 2 for this reason, but the price was very cheap for this area. So beware, you do get what you pay for.

Last year 5 stars

  • 4 of 5

The unit was Great. Clean, good location to get anywhere, just a block from 5th Ave and steps away from the big night clubs. So it is a little noisy till 4 am. Lost only one star because they are building a big condo unit across the street where the hammering and loud trucks start at 7 am. Should be a lot better again next year.
