Quiet, convenient, clean, comfortable. Excellent staff.
Negatives: Kitchen was not well-equipped, but served it's purpose. Cabinetry was in need of repairs, but not a big deal. Small hot water tank for more than 2 people.

Condo was very nice and updated. The view was excellent and loved sitting on the balcony. The property is very well maintained and the pool is beautiful. So close to 5th Ave which was great for us. We walked everywhere.

The location is great! (on the beach, one street away from 5th Ave, a few blocks away from Walmart-the place to get food in Playa and ADO bus station)The pool was clean and fun for the kids although I would suggest they clean it either before of after opening hours. It is after all one of the main attractions. Also there were some repairs of the decks when we were there which generated quite some noise throughout the day the WHOLE week. The staff was very helpful and kind. The masseuse near the pool were AMAZING! You must treat yourself! The apartment however could be better kept (many things were stained, chipped etc..) There was the BARE minimum for cooking and cleaning (probably to get you to pay extra for cleaning service), which made it harder and less enjoyable. The dish washer didn't work well, the faucet in the kitchen leaked so that you would get soaked when washing the dishes that the dish washer had not cleaned well! When I asked for some assistance from the manager, his response was to ask me to stay in the apt to let the repair people in from 10 to 5. I of course declined. I was not paying to stay in the apt during repairs even if we had the only keys. I think it is only fair that someone from the company be there to attend to the repairs, not the customer. Someone could have come around 10 and stayed in the apt to tend to the repair people. The air conditioning in the living room didn't work well, it was more of a fan function rather than air cooling. Some of the lights in the apt didn't work. Overall the apt was functional but not super comfortable. There was rust in the bathtub so I didn't want to bath my baby in it and had to bath her in the sink which was not great because of the way the faucet is set up. Finally, a very pungent sewer smell started up in the bathroom of the main bedroom 2 days before we left. It was so bad we had to stop using that bathroom and kept the door closed at all times. The place could be amazing but needs much more up keep and regular maintenance.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. We have passed along your feedback to the manager. The pool and the grounds are maintained by the HOA. Please call us next time you book to be sure you have a unit that suits your needs.

This is our new go-to place in Playa Del Carmen. My wife and go try to visit PDC twice a year and this is our 2nd stay in 6 months. The location couldn’t be better, the condo is large and very comfortable, and the beds are amazing. The best part is waking up with that view every morning, then walking a few steps to the beach and or pool. Security was wonderful and very helpful with umbrellas, I could go on forever.....just trust me and stay here.
Also, Alberto is very helpful with anything you need.

It’s a best choice in Playa. Location - perfect. Pool on territory - it’s awesome( it’s so clean. Fellas cleaning pool everyday). Guards on duty anytime, when you wanna something. And, of course, Alberto. It’s a best manager, ever. Perfectly met. He answer an any questions. If you don’t know how to use some electronic devices in apartment, you can write on WhatsApp. Thx to Alberto, this man made my vacation.

Nice, clean confortable condo with a beautiful view and a nice balcony.

Wow! Where to start. We are have been coming to Playa for over 15 years and continued to stay at the same hotel not knowing any better... well we definitely know better now! From the moment Alberto met us at the front desk we felt so comfortable. Then walking into our condo and seeing the view, we knew right then we had made a great change. The condo was spacious and comfortable. Comfortable beds and linens. TV’s in each room and living area. Drinkable water there waiting for you was a plus.
The pool is so big you don’t have to worry about feeling crowded. Massages at the pool are great and yes we had them daily. We have nothing but incredible things to say about this place and are so excited to be back soon.

This condo was perfect for our needs and was in the ideal location. There were three adults in our party, and the condo allowed ample space and privacy. I loved having coffee on the balcony watching the sunrise on the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves all day long. The property has excellent beach access with private beach chairs for guests of the complex. I also enjoyed an almost daily massage offered poolside.
Just a block away from 5th ave that has tons of restaurants, shopping and pretty much anything you could want. Walmart is in walking distance if you're going to cook.
Manager of the property checked on us and was there if we needed anything (we didn't).
I would definitely stay here again. Loved it
