About Peggy Hammeken

Living in Minnesota, many of our favorite memories are taking vacations with our daughters! After traveling thoughout Mexico looking for a 'home away from home' we decided on Playa del Carmen! The beautiful caribbean, the friendly people and it's super location was perfect for us! Now with four grandchildren we hope to enjoy many more vacations with the grandkids as they grow.

Peggy Hammeken purchased this condo in 2000

Why Peggy Hammeken chose Playa del Carmen

The central location was also perfect for day trips along the Mayan Riviera! The condo is centrally located so there is no need for a car! The expansive beaches are great for walking and water sports! The town, with its shops and boutiques, street artists and music, boasts ethnic cuisine from many different parts of the world! It is a great area with activities for the young and old!

This was our 2nd time in Conda Xiat and it continues to impress us with its beautiful condition, location, amenities, and most of all Staff. We love returning and seeing the same friendly and helpful faces.



The unit is very well equipped and you will have all you need at your disposal for a wonderful base from which to explore beautiful Playa del Carmen

Excellent choice for me...

  • 5 of 5
I had stayed in this building in 2010 and I wanted stay here again. The unit I wanted was booked, so that unit's owner referred me to this owner, who has two units in the building (a 1 bedroom and a 2 bedroom). First, let me note that the amenity information and photos on this website for this property are accurate.

The bottom line is that the property is 1 block off of 5th Avenue, and off of the cruise tourist path. It is quiet. There are plenty of good restaurants, bars, and nightlife nearby. One supermarket (I don't recall the name) is within walking distance and there is a Super Walmart just beyond walking distance.

This time around, I also used the laundromat. That worked well as I only had to pack 1/2 of the clothes that I normally would take.

I really do not have any negative to write about the property. There were a couple of issues, of which I contacted the owner about, and those issues were taken care of almost immediately. The only suggestion that I have is that the unit has a DVD player, but no DVDs for a rainy day. (Remember that Netflix, etc. does not work in Mexico.)

The owner only handles payments by PayPal. That is good. And once payment is received, the owner sends a really good information packet.

The owner has a website that can be found by searching Las Palmas.

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from spending a wonderful week at Palma Xiat. All of the information we received from the owners prior to our arrival was so helpful in making the most of our visit to Playa del Carmen. Housekeeping came in every other day with fresh sheets and towels, etc., making us feel like we were in a hotel. We had all of the comforts of home plus everything you needed for a great vacation. The Mamita's beach club passes were an added bonus. The on-site manager was available anytime you needed something. We hadn't planned on eating in during our vacation, but we absolutely loved the rooftop pool, grill and sundeck. It was so peaceful with views all the way to Cozumel! We grilled steak from the local meat market and had everything we needed to prepare a terrific dinner. It was the highlight of our vacation so we ate in several times. The rooftop pool was peaceful and relaxing. The condo was close to the beach and shopping. We discovered that futher down 5th toward the Ferry Pier was a little more action. Fun to watch at night but good to be a few blocks away. The fresh squeezed orange juice from the carts in the morning was excellent. The condo had a book with recomendations and experiences from past guests on restaurants, excursions, etc. that was very helpful. We are looking forward to our next visit to Playa del Carmen and would definitely stay at Palma Xiat again.

Clean, Comfortable, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 weeks in November, 2010. The condo is exactly as described with all the amenities you will need. The location is perfect, 1 block from the main drag of 5th Avenue where all the bars, shops, and restaurants are located, and 3 blocks from the beach.

The condo comes with coupons for Mamita's Beach Club, where you can trade them for either an umbrella or a chaise chair. Considering we rolled out usually pretty late to the beach sometimes there were no chairs available, so just bring the towels provided at the condo and plant yourself anywhere on the beach. Or just walk up to the rooftop pool, and hang out there. You will most likely have it to yourself.

As for nightlife, there seems to be plenty of it. The big party is down by 1st Ave and Calle 12. The crowd is a bit younger but definitely something to check out, and the music seems to be more dance and techno. If that is not your style, just plant yourself in any one of the hundreds of bars along 5th Ave. get yourself some happy hour drinks (usually until 6PM) and people watch. For sport lovers check out Tequila Barrel showing sports on tons of big screen TVs (and ladies get a free shot for dancing on the bar :-)).

There is a big variety of restaurants, however there seems to be a fair amount of turnover and some restaurants that we found on the web and wanted to check out were closed. Here is a list of some we liked:

La Fragata
Calle 26 between 1st & 5th Avenue
Right down the street from the condo, great breakfast and lunch,

Las Cazuelas
Calle 26th btw.5th Ave, and 10th Ave.
This was one of our favorite places, and it is right next to the condo. Excellent Spanish food, tapas, etc, served in a family atmosphere, at great prices. Each day they also have Comida Corrida, a set menu with three courses and drink for 75 pesos.

Babe's Noodle & Bar
Calle 10, btw 5th Ave. and 10th Ave.
also at 5th Ave, btw Calle 28 and Calle 30.
Thai inspired excellent food, very reasonable prices

Maktub Cafe
5th Avenue between Calles 28 and 30
Excellent middle-eastern food.

El Asador de Manolo
The corner of 5th Avenue and Calle 32
This Argentinian grill serves up a myriad of grilled meats.

Taco Chido
10nth Ave. btw Calle 8 and Calle 10
Authentic cheap tacos

La Kalaka: Italian
Calle 4 btw 15nth and 20nth Ave
Excellent Italian, romantic setting, off the beaten path.

Carboncitos
Calle 4, btw 5th and 10nth Ave
Authentic Mexican fair.
