BEAUTIFUL, SAFE AND SECURE CONDO WITH OCEAN VIEWS
Submitted: December 5, 2012
Stayed: November 2012
My wife and I travel to Playa regularly and usually stay in higher end oceanfront properties or at least very close to the beach as we truly enjoy the ocean views. We chose this property for its location and outdoor living space. We were not disappointed; instead, we we ecstatic. The pictures do not accurately represent this property. The condo with its views is truly astonishing.
LOCATION: Unless one is familiar with Playa it is difficult to describe just how perfectly this condo is located. It is nestled in a picturesque area reminding me more of Europe with its brick sidewalks and sidewalk cafes. What we consider to be the best restaurants in Playa are are in close proximity but honestly, everything in Playa is "close". This condo makes you feel as though you are in the middle of everything but your actual condo with its ocean view makes you feel as though you are removed from everything. I was concerned about not having an oceanfront condo; however, this was not a problem. The walk to the beach was an enjoyable 5-10 minute stroll and using a beach club gave me the same amenities as having an oceanfront condo without tracking sand into the condo all day long.
THE CONDO: Colorful, happy, comfortable and a well-appointed kitchen. The kitchen even had a few spices, salt, pepper and coffee filters which we found very useful. The photographs do not capture the condo and the picturesque view. We found the beds to be extremely comfortable and the bedding was top notch. Closet and storage space was remarkable and plenty of hangars: a small but memorable detail. The washer and dryer were perfect and soap was provided, another small detail. The internet was fast and very dependable. We could not get the Vonage phone to work but it was probably user error. We carry our own cell phones so this was not an issue for us.
CHECK IN/OUT: I called Playa Paradise as we were leaving the airport and I expected someone to be at the Condo upon our arrival for check-in. After a second phone call, someone from Playa Paradise was there in five minutes. If this was my first trip to Playa, I would have been concerned. Check-out went without a hitch.
OVERALL: This condo exceeded all of our expectations. The location was perfect for our needs and lifestyle. It left us with a feeling that we "lived" in Mexico for a week, we did not just have a week long vacation in Mexico.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you enjoyed our condo as much as we do We had exactly the same sentiments when choosing our home in Playa, ie, away from it all but in the heart of everything, particularly the best restaurants and with the fabulous views, perfect. It's a shame you were not able to use the Vonage line as we installed it to make contact with home easier whilst still enjoying your vacation. I spent hours talking to my son in Shanghai, my family and friends in the UK, Amsterdam and Canada during our 3 month stay this summer so yes, maybe it was something really simple for it to not work, particularly as the internet was working so well, and it's connected through internet. On your next visit have Marcelo our technical expert, always on the premises come in and reboot it for you. We do hope you will come back again and we thank you for writing such a glowing review.
