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!
Thank you guys so much it was my pleasure having you guys I hope you return soon best regards
If you want to stay up until the early am or go clubbing this place is for you.
Pros: The owner was very responsive to all of our questions. This property is close to the beach and in the heart of downtown. The condo is clean, has a kitchenette and all the basics. If you just want a place to lay your head and get a little sleep it’s fine. The price was definitely right!
Cons: club noise, club noise. We ended up leaving after 2 sleepless nights. The music doesn’t end until 3:30-4 am. There is no place to put your clothes-no dresser or closet.
Budget Price/Ok Accommodations
If all you are looking for is an inexpensive place to sleep, this will do but that’s the catch: noise from near-by clubs goes very late and then construction noise begins quite early. Kitchen and bed are ok and owners rep (Marta) was easy to work with. It would be helpful to add a place to store clothes as right now you live out of your suitcase. Truely in heart of Playa with being 1 block off 5th Ave and beach being only couple minutes walk.
Great spot super secure
Spot is great clean and close to everything if you want to relax and get a good night sleep this place might be a little loud for you after 11pm great spot tho
All You Need To Enjoy Some Time in the Heart of Playa del Carmen
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
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.
