GRADUATION PRESENT FOR OUR TWO KIDS!!

  • 5 of 5
DO NOT HESITATE!!! BOOK THIS LOCATION!!!!

If you are like me and right this minute, you are trying to find the perfect location for your vacation, STOP, you have found it. I was so particular about my choices. I wanted RIGHT on the beach, (not beach view or ocean view), I wanted to step out onto my patio and hear the waves crashing (not just see them from a 20th floor room or a "gardenview" room), I wanted to be sooo close to the pool AND beach that I didn't have to pack a cooler for the day, I could just go back inside. THIS WONDERFUL CONDO HAS ALL OF THAT!

The staff is very nice and helpful. The security is ALL DAY people!! This uniformed security guard stands there all day and WILL NOT, let anyone come onto the property OR lay in one of the beach chairs, unless they have a writstband on.

We didn't rent a car because you can walk to everything. We just took a taxi to anywhere further than a mile or two. We had our airport shuttle stop off at a liquor store and then we walked to a Walmart for groceries. The taxi ride back was $5. You are even walking distance to the ferry that takes you to Cozumel, it's $13 each way.

Oh! The A/C was amazing and every sliding glass door has a privacy blind and in the bedrooms they have a second "block out" blind. If it wasn't for my internal clock, I would have slept til noon. There is a Starbucks that opens early.

We had a wonderful time!!

PERFECTLY LOCATED BEACHFRONT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
The condo is located near all of the best shopping and restaurants in Playa. Stepping off the balcony and right onto the beach was so convenient. We would sit on the balcony and watch the waves crash on the beach with an unobstructed panoramic view. The furnishings were comfortable and the condo is well stocked. We would love to stay here again.

THIS WAS A GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I loved this unit because it was beautifully decorated, has two master suites, and the location can't be beat. It was on ground level beach front and right near the pool. Everything worked perfectly while we were there. The staff were all so helpful and nice, whatever you needed they were right there to help. The location of this unit is perfect being right on the beach and so close to restaurants, bars, and shopping.
