EXCELLENT CONDO WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this condo March 26-April 2, 2011 (2 adults, son-14, daughter-9). The condo and building are both in excellent condition. Our contact person in PDC was helpful and promptly got us more bottled water and propane for the grill when we requested it. Our deposit was cheerfully returned in full. The beds were super comfortable and the towels and linens were luxurious. As a bonus, the condo had a pair of boogie boards for the beach and the aforementioned bottled water. The view from this condo is perfect...very relaxing. We ate every meal on the roof. There is nothing to obstruct your view from the patio or the rooftop. The other side of the building has a narrow slice of ocean view, mostly blocked the building next door. The pool was fantastic and usually we were the only people there. The beach is literally just steps away. But be aware that this part of the beach is frequented by local families, not really tourists. And the size of the beach here is almost non-existent. The other properties have fences right down to the water line. I suspect there has been significant beach erosion. However, there was enough room to put down your towel and swim in the surf. This is definitely the quiet part of town. The crazy beach action (loud techno music, dancing, drinking, topless women) was a 5-10 min walk down the beach, if that is what you want. We did not have a car and found we did not need one, mostly. It is a 20 min walk to the Mega (like a Walmart) where we did our grocery shopping. The northern part of 5th street was a 5 min walk, but the real touristy part of 5th street is a 15 min walk. We felt safe at all times, but we were usually in by 9pm. Expect restaurant prices to be what you'd pay in any American resort town. Any place on 5th you'll drop $60-80 on a dinner for four. We went in a van to Chechenitza and a taxi to Xel-Ha. Skip those ruins, they are not worth 6 hours in a van on crappy roads. Go to Tulum or Coba. And no, you can't go up the stairs of the pyramids anymore. Xel-Ha was great for the kids and the food was outstanding (and I am pretty critical about food). The "free" beer and margaritas helped me through the ordeal. In retrospect, the condo was great. If you are sure about going to PDC, and you want a quiet place to stay near the "action" this condo is perfect. I'm just not sure PDC is a good family destination with all the partying and drugs offered to me (with my family) on 5th street.

Owner's Response: thanks Alex for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the condo. I'm aware that there is not much beach left right in front of the condo, unfortuneately as you mentioned erosion keeps taking it away, but there it is still a nice spot to swim and just a few minutes walk the beaches are getting larger up to 80 meters, of course those are also the spots most frequented and therefore with more people and noise. Anyway I hope to see you again some day in PDC.
