Terrific birthday getaway
"I just returned from celebrating my 60th birthday with my partner and a friend at Luna Encantada in Playa del Carmen. I'm very glad we did, because we were all really pleased with Rich and Jackie's condo. The condo and the complex itself were very clean and carefully managed by a local property management company. Every other day, the condo was serviced and cleaned, beds made and trash taken out. We found the staff very friendly and helpful and they always seemed to be cleaning the pool area and making sure chlorine levels in the pool (the water was always clean) were adequate. Noise levels at the condo were never a problem, especially since all the windows are double-paned.
The complex is really convenient to Quinta Avenida (half a block away) and everything it has to offer, but by all means, explore the other streets off QA and everything they have to offer for an even more authentic experience. There is a very convenient taxi stand right at the corner of Calle 6 and QA if you don't feel like walking. And the bus terminal is an easy 5 minute walk away.
Rich was very helpful in providing information about getting to the condo, where to eat, things to do, etc. When I had questions, he was quite prompt in replying.
If there were any downsides to staying here, we'd have to say that because there is a stretch of coral on the beach at the complex, it didn't really make it a great place to just go and jump in the ocean. It would have been too rocky. But getting to another smoother part close by was no problem. The extra sofa in the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms seemed unnecessary and blocked access to the balcony. It just made those spaces a bit awkward. And the patio also felt like it had too much furniture. More hooks to hang wet towels would be great.
When we arrived, Hurricane Earl was just starting to hit south of the Yucatan in Belize. We got some of the outlying storms from it which stirred up a seaweed dump on parts of the beach at Playa. The smell was a little off-putting but we realized that it's just part of life in the tropics. The property owners along the beach were doing their best to remove it quickly, though.
We would not hesitate to recommend or return to Luna Encantada."

"This house is lovely. Very well maintained and comfortable. Our family of six had plenty of space and everything we needed. This home provides more than the typical rental. Beach towels and floats, laundry soap, basic pantry items etc... The outside pool area is a plus. The location is close enough that you can walk to the beach or 5th avenue, but far enough away from the crowds. The owner is easily accessible for information about the area which helps if you are not familiar. He also checks in with you during your stay. We truly enjoyed our stay at this villa and are planning to return. Great property."

"We have stayed for a month in this comfortable Condo the previous 2 years and are booked in for another month in March of next year. The security personnel are friendly and helpful when you need a hand. The condo is clean and well equipped with appliances, tv, internet and more. Location is perfect as there is a Mega store a block away, fish markets, vegetable markets, restaurants and laundry services within 3 blocks. The condo is equipped with a new washer and dryer and the balcony is a great place to relax. This 2nd level condo is quiet and the pool is refreshing and well maintained. Most of the residents in the condo complex have been coming back for several years and usually stay for 3-6 months. The beach and Mamitas Beach Bar is a leisurely 5-7 minute walk. 5th Ave is 4 blocks away and the street that the condo is on is quiet and not subject to a lot of traffic. The property manager is very helpful should you need any information on Playa or any concerns with the condo. The condo owners are very friendly and decorate the condo with beautiful paintings, pictures and ornaments. We have stayed at other places in Playa and this condo is the best."
