Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family, including 5 adults, stayed at this condo for a week. Great location next to a beautiful beach. Only a 2 block walk. Beach chairs and towels were provided. Several convenience stores nearby as well as a short walk to the Mega for groceries. Suggest a taxi ride back with your groceries, but we only paid $2. Also one block from 5th Avenue. We ate off of 5th Avenue at restaurants where the locals went. Excellent food and reasonable prices. Spacious with everything you need. Internet worked great. We used the deck/porch everyday. Great amenity.

Best location and best beach

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 2 kids. The condo was just awesome. Two bedrooms with two bathrooms and good size kitchen. Really comfortable place. Just a few steps from the spectacular 5th Avenue and also from the best beach at Playa del Carmen: "Playa Mamitas"...Every time we needed something, Lidia responded very nicely, eficient and quick. Not noise at any time. Air condition at every room and at the family room. Hot water at showers. Kitchen full equiped with every thing we needed for a two weeks stay. We would come back to this condo...Thanks Daniel and Lidia for everything!.

Beautiful Condo close to beach,shopping and dining

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful condominium and Playa del Carmen is a wonderful place to visit.

Large, clean and comfortable condominium well located in a very nice section of town. All rooms in the unit are large. The unit had very nice bathrooms; clean and spacious. The kitchen was well supplied with appliances, dishes, glasses, etc. and the furnishings throughout the apartment were good quality. The balcony was large with very nice outdoor furniture.

Shops and restaurants are within a short walk, and the major markets are just a 40 peso ride away (about $4) in a cab. Although within walking distance it is best to take a cab to the market since you have to carry bags. Cabs are plentiful, and you need only walk a block or so to find one every time. Mamitas and Kool beach are beautiful and just a short walk from the condo. It was easy to come back to the condo for lunch and return to the beach which we did a few times. Other days we had lunch at Mamitas which is right on the beach. Good food and drinks and service is efficient and friendly.

The owner was very accommodating and made the rental process easy. The building manager is located on the floor above the unit and he was able to arrange some tours for us. He was very pleasant and asked us several times if there is anything he could do to make our stay more pleasant.

The listing was very representative of the apartment. The pictures are quite accurate and the descriptions spot on. I would highly recommend this unit for your vacation in Playa.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

The description tells no lies. This is a very nice apartment, large, clean, well maintained. The location is fabulous. The building is in as wonderful shape as the apartment itself. It’s a good an apartment I’ve ever rented in Playa and I’ve been here many times. In fact it’s better than 98% of them.

Mamitas Beach is a short walk down the street and the restaurants and shops of 5th are a block in the other direction. Kool and Mamitas beach clubs are at the end of the street toward Mamitas.

Excellent internet connection.

In short, well maintained, very pleasant and quiet neighborhood, very convenient unit. I will be coming here again.

Great vacation spot at a very reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here from April 27 – May 4, 2014 to attend a wedding and take a little vacation. This was not a mistake.

Great unit at a great price. Delivered everything promised. Everything worked well, and the location is perfect; right up from Mamitas Beach and 5th Avenue.

Two large TV’s, fully equipped kitchen, beds are in great shape, very well furnished with some nice artwork throughout the unit as well. Spacious balcony where you can sip a margarita, as we did many nights. Nice cool air-conditioning throughout the unit in every room. Good wifi service.

The location was the best thing though. Within walking distance of everything, including major stores such as Walmart. Cabs are plentiful if you need them. We didn’t have a car, but if we did there was an off-street parking space. When we return we may rent a car to see the sites around the Yucatan and that parking space will come in handy.

Oh snap, I almost forgot the best part. Right up the street from Mamitas Beach club, a great place to hang, have lunch, take a dip, or have a drink.

Probably will be returning to Playa soon, and will certainly look to stay here again. Great unit.

Great experience, everything as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was modern, clean, very large, comfortable, in a quiet part of the downtown but literally steps from the Mamitas Beach and the main walking corridor. From the first I liked what I experienced. the building facade is better designed than most in the area, incorporating natural wood in non-linear lines making up the various units. It has a parking spot right in front of the unit and was always available when I was ready to pull in my car! No interlopers. The unit is equiped with two, large flat tv's which have sufficient english language shows to satisfy most visitors. The bedrooms were large, spacious and the beds were very comfortable. All the three independent air conditioning units in the condo worked perfectly and were perfect on those few occasions when we just needed a tad of cooler air. But visitors need to know that opening the rear window in the laundry room and the front two sliding glass doors in unison provide a wonderful breeze that really keeps the unit cool in almost all cases.

The kitchen was fully and well equipped as I cooked 5 or 6 nights of the 9 we were there and had a need to use most of the equipment. Grocery shopping is fairly easy but for anything substantial I would highly recommend going to the Wal Mart located 5 minutes by drive, 15 minutes by walking. I found that most other shopping areas do not adequately refridgerate vegetables or fruits and that there is a price to pay for that.

The Mamitas Beach is right around the block's corner and three short blocks to the water. There are a couple of small shops serving water/juice drinks and snacks along the way as well as a number of very good restaurants so either coming or going you can pretty much find what you need. If you like music and company, the Mamitas or Kool Beach Clubs right on the entry way will do you well although as an older guy, it was more than I needed. The water was beautiful and refreshing but you will probably want to go somewhere else to find clear snorkling water due to waves.

The shopping/walking avenue was really all one could handle, providing everything one could imagine. There are numerous eateries/restaurants that will satisfy all and lots of general shopping, with a special note for jewelry. With expensive stuff be sure you know what you are buying.

One doesn't need a car as it is easy to rent for the day/s in Playa(I recommend Payless)to make trips to Tulum, Sion Biosphere. General mgmt., especially the owner, were gracious.
