About Anna Carmine, Matt Leli, and Laura Leli Carmine

Anna Carmine, Matt Leli, and Laura Leli Carmine purchased this condo in 2006

Why Anna Carmine, Matt Leli, and Laura Leli Carmine chose Playa del Carmen

The beaches in Playa are white, soft sand, no rocks and the water is crystal clear. They are very clean beaches and you can see Cozumel on the horizon. You can walk for miles. Playa has a law that no building near the beach can be taller than 4 stories, so you'll not see any tall buildings which is part of Playa's charm. We love the international flavor of Playa. At any time you'll hear Italian, Portugese, German, English, and, of course, Spanish. It is European in architecture and lifestyle.

You can walk north on the beach for at least 10 miles (that's as far as we've ever walked). The water is crystal clear, about 78 degrees. There are numerous restaurants right on the beach and lots of places to get chairs, drinks, etc. You can walk south for about 1 mile, but after that, there is not as much beach and the water goes all the way to the buildings. That's where a number of all-inclusives are, so there's not as much to see anyway.

On the beach you can do boogie boards, parasailing, wave runners, etc. Snorkeling and deep sea diving and fishing are very popular. If you want to go snorkeling, I'd take the ferry to Cozumel (rated one of the 7 best in the world) and go snorkeling there. You can also take a tour bus or rent a car once in Playa and go south to ancient mayan ruins or a water park that has snorkeling, tubing in an underground river, and swimming with the dolphins. My son and his girlfriend went zip lining in the area and raved about it. We have noodles in the condo for your use in the Gulf and/or the pool.

You don't need a car in Playa You only need a car if you want to go off-site for something. Even zip-lining comes and picks you up.

Fifth Avenue is about 2 miles long, is pedestrian only, and has open air restaurants and shopping. You can walk up and down and find a place you want to eat dinner or go shopping.

What makes this condo unique

No other property in Playa del Carmen has the ammenities, the perfect location, the attentive staff or the stunning architecture of Porto Playa and our sister properties: El Taj Ocean, El Taj Beach, Maya Villa and Villas Sacbe

Our condo's have high ceilings, zoned air conditioning, ceiling fans in every room, full-sized appliances and large kitchens stocked with cookware, blender, toaster, coffee maker - everything you'd want to make you feel like it's yours and not a hotel room.. We have noodles in the condo for your use in the Gulf and/or the pool.

Couple of tips:

You don't need a car in Playa You only need a car if you want to go off-site for something. Even zip-lining comes and picks you up.

Fifth Avenue is about 2 miles long, is pedestrian only, and has open air restaurants and shopping. You can walk up and down and find a place you want to eat dinner or go shopping.

Playa is very European - half the tourists are American, the other half are a mix from all over the world: South America, Asia and Europe. It's fun to walk 5th or be eating a meal and hearing all the different accents.

You can walk to Wal-Mart or Mega from our condo-(6 blocks). I know how that might sound, but they are great stores with fresh food. We typically walk over there the first day (in the morning before it gets too hot), and buy fresh fruit, wine and snacks. We then have breakfast on our balcony. Before dinner we open up a bottle of wine and have drinks and snacks on the balcony.

We've done all-inclusives and liked them, but prefer Porto Playa. Everything is in such close proximity that it's similar to an all-inclusve, but with much more variety.

Paradise @ Porto Playa

  • 5 of 5
Enjoy gentle breezes from the balcony of this enticing property. Walk to the beach or the restaurants on 5th Avenue. Lounge @ the pool with a refreshing cocktail.

Overall, this property is a slice of heaven with plenty of amenities and great location. The unit and property are well maintained.

I hope to return in the near term and have recommended this two bedroom, two bath unit to my friends!!

Best girl getaway ever!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip included 5 women all seeking a stress-free vacation. The amenities at Porta Playa exceeded our expectations! We were centrally located, a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach, the fabulous restaurants and the shopping along 5th Avenue. Our condo was immaculate, well supplied and had a beautiful view of the pools and the courtyard lush with foliage. We walked each night to fabulous restaurants where our meals surpassed many here at home. There was always friendly staff available to answer our questions and they were very attentive to our needs. The entire trip was fabulous and we are already planning our next trip to Porta Playa, before this "best kept secret" is discovered. It was truly a trip of a lifetime!

Porto Playa is great for everyone!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled to Playa del Carmen in March and stayed at this unit. First of all, I cannot write this review without first touching on how amazing Playa del Carmen is. It is the perfect vacation for everyone. It has so much to offer - beautiful beaches, adventures to ruins and jungle ziplines, wonderful shops, delicious restaurants and easy access to one of the top rated snorkeling sites in the world in Cozemel!! And Porto Playa is in the middle of it all. The location is ideal - a five minute walk gets you to the beach, the clubs, the food and shops, but also provides enough distance for a peaceful retreat when returning to your condo. The staff is unbelievably attentive and the grounds are pristine. This unit is on the second floor and has a beautiful view of the pool and is the right height to be surrounded by the wonderfully landscaped courtyard. The cool breeze the balcony gets provides a perfect spot for enjoying coffee in the morning and cocktails at night! We have nothing but great things to say about Porto Playa and are already planning our return trip with some friends!

Much Needed Girls Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from Playa Del Carmen where I stayed at Porto Playa with four girlfriends. We had the perfect room, # 216. It was everything as described and more.The location was great, we had a beautiful breeze as we sat on the patio each evening and shared a bottle of wine before going to dinner. Restaurants and shopping are so close and the choices unbelievable! One of the best parts of our day was taking the very short walk to the Indigo Beach Club, which had the best sand, crystal blue water and margaritas anywhere!!! I travel a lot and this is my favorite place to go!

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

  • 5 of 5
What a great place for a girls getaway. Kelly helped me book unit 216 at Porto Playa and it was just perfect for the 4 of us. In the condo was a packet of information and discount cards for many restaraunts and nearby attractions. After a relaxing day at Indigo Beach Club, literally only 100 steps away, we had cocktail hour every night on the balcony overlooking the pool. Afterwards we headed out to Fifth Avenue for dinner, music and nightlife.It doesn't get much better than that. We're already planning to go back next year for our girls trip. Luxury accommodations, beautiful weather, outstanding restaurants, & fantastic service made our girls getaway the best ever!
