  • We could LIVE here!

    "This condo is spotless, and though it's only a studio it has all the amenities. I'd forgotten my hair dryer, but found one in the bathroom. If you can't find it, just call the manager, who graciously answers questions and gives advice. Since this was our first stay in Playa del Carmen we had no expectations or ideas of the best things to do, and restaurants to choose. The condo has a binder from the owners with helpful ideas, there are some great maps available, and a book with notes from previous guests. We loved strolling Fifth Avenue (with its persuasive hawkers at nearly every shop and kiosk) with its many shops, stopping for coffee or gelato, and picking up fruit, pastry, and drinks at the mini-mart and bakery on Fifth Avenue near the condo. There are too many restaurants to recommend, but one of the condo's maps has helpful reviews of restaurants. Our favorites include El Fogon, Lido on the beach (where we sat for hours in lounge chairs enjoying a few cold beers while watching the water activities), La Cueva de Chango (garden setting), Chez Celine, and a little place that looks like it just opened called The White Bar that offered a Taco and Beer early evening special. We had no bad experiences with any restaurants so you can't really go wrong. We took the ferry to Cozumel for a day and had a four hour tour with a taxi driver who showed us some highlights along the coast. We also spent a day traveling to Tulum and Coba to explore the Mayan ruins. We'd highly recommend both of these for a day trip. We stopped at Akumel Beach but it was too late in the day to snorkel in pursuit of turtles, but several people we met said it was their best outing of their trips. The weather, by local standards, was cold (mid-70's) but the water was warm and we only had one evening of light rain. Overall, if you have decided to visit Playa - and you should! - this is a perfect place for a couple who isn't looking for room service."

  • Wonderful stay, location and overall experience

    "We stayed at this location in April 2016 and we had an absolute wonderful time. Sue and Steve were fantastic to work with and we were delighted that they opened their home to us. The location is perfect! A very short cab right into Playa Del Carmen where we ventured out to eat most nights. A very short walk to the beach through the Reef Resort which we were provided with free access. We stayed here a week and having our own private condo was amazing, the pool was never busy and having access to an entire suite was great. We would love to stay here again!!"

  • Heaven on Earth!

    "We knew the place was going to be spectacular because of the photos, but the photos do not even give it justice! The views from the condo and from the balcony are stunning! We were walking distance to most of the amazing restaurants that we wanted to go and enjoy. We also never really had a problem finding a spot park our golf cart. I slept like a rock in the bed and had more than enough room for 5 of us in the condo! We will definitely return!"

  • Sweet Place, Nice Base for Riviera Maya Fun

    "We really enjoyed La Sirena #4. We are at the time of the stay a couple with a 14-year old daughter. The description and pictures are very accurate and give a great idea of the condo layout and features. Everything worked well--Canadian satellite TV, air conditioning and blender most importantly. We spent more time in the pool than expected, as it was really pleasant there. We also snorkeled off the beach and around the corner at Yal-Ku Lagoon. We loved La Buena Vida restaurant on the other side of Half Moon Bay, which had a menu very friendly for our vegan girl. An appropriate request of the mariachi is Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. The best beer we found was Mondo Maya (from Playa) served in one liter bottles at La Buena Vida. We also enjoyed a meal at Lol-Ha. Our tips include bring surf shoes. Grab some groceries on the way (we stopped at WalMart in Playa. Very cheap bakery there). The air conditioning is solid and the place tight and it keeps the house cool for hours after you turn it off. For take-home good tequila your options are Viva Zapata in Tulum or a couple of places on 5th Avenue in Playa. The unit came with a 5-gallon drinking water bottle. Staff would have replaced it with a new one had we needed replenishment. We loved La Buena Vida restaurant on the other side of Half Moon Bay, which had a menu very friendly for our vegan girl.

We also enjoyed a meal at Lol-Ha. La Sirena has around 12 or so condos in the three story building on the beach and four standalone homes around the pool gardens. 2 sets of 3 steps up. The whole place was less than half occupied in mid-summer, and we often had the beach alone. Security Alfredo oversees the complex during the day and police stay near the condo entrance at the junction to Yal-Ku Lagoon during the evenings. The housekeeper tailored cleaning to our schedule and requests (for example, towels, trash and recycling, or one day with a more thorough clean). The condo was very clean on arrival. Wi-fi was outstanding. We caught an arm of Hurricane Earl (landfall in Belize) on our last night. A crew came by and cleared anything that could be windblown from outside and furniture from the sunken living room. Power dropped twice briefly, which was better than we expected at the level of storm. Terry is a thoughtful, communicative host."
