My husband & I completely loved this unit & complex. The location was perfect, close walk to the beach, Fifth Ave & great neighbourhood of local restaurants & shops.
The condo was comfortable to sit in day & night & we thoroughly enjoyed every evening on the rooftop. We can't imagine anyone not enjoying there stay here.
We would definetely return & highly recommend to anyone else.

We've stayed in this unit every spring for the past 3 years. It is in a great location, about a 5 minute walk to 5th Ave and less then 10 minutes to the beach. It comfortably fits our family of 4, and the kids love the pool in the condo complex. The grounds, pool, and common areas are well maintained; and the Security Guards for the complex are friendly and always willing to help carry groceries up the stairs.
We love the roof top patio, it is nice place to relax at the end of the day, the breeze off the ocean after sunset is fantastic.
Can't wait to come back next year.
My husband and I just stayed for the second year at this unit. Although he is not a traveler and had never been south, the stay last year made my husband suggest on our arrival back home that we go for two weeks this year (which we did!). We brought good friends with us and they loved the place! One comment was how lovely the rooftop was...we'd sit for hours in the comfortable lounging area chatting and watching the sun set. I even crept up very early one morning with a blanket and slept until the sun rose...heavenly!!The sound of the school kids across the street in the morning was delightful , as was the convenience of the stadium track 1/2 block away, where I ran in the mornings. The TV, air conditioning, washer/dryer/ micro/safe all worked well for us. The place was spotless when we arrived, with fancy towels laid on the beds and when we had a question for the owner, he replied quickly by email. When we had a problem getting reception for the TV, the property manager came over very shortly afterwards and was quick to solve the issue.
We got in the habit of going for fabulous three layer lattes at Coffee and Company, one of a kazillion spots on 5th Avenue, which is the best people-watching, bargain-shopping, restaurant-picking place in Mexico! We felt totally safe and relaxed...the locals were so friendly...everyone smiles on the street and is helpful and courteous. Even after 15days, there was still lots to see and do ...we only ventured to Xcaret, but next time would be more adventuresome with other excursions.. This year was all about relaxing, reading , going in the pool every day to cool down ( beats shoveling snow) , walking the beach and DINING OUT !! Thanks for such a wonderful stay.. We have recommended this unit to others...
We stayed at this condo for 18 glorious days and will re-book it again and again! We have and still recommend this place to anyone who asks about it! The owners have been very accomodating and helpful regarding the condo and the area!
When we arrived, the condo was nicely cooled with all the air conditioners on. We soon realized that we didn't need to have the air on, as there was always a great breeze with all the doors open!
The rooftop patio is absolutely fabulous! There's plenty of room for sun or shade lounging. It was clean and functioned perfectly! The furniture up there was clean, fresh and very comfy for an afternoon of sunning or an evening of drinks and stars!
The condo itself was well-equipped with dishes, utensils, sheets,towels, blankets, whatever you need for a holiday! There were even a few staples in the cupboard to use! Even the BBQ got used! We had BBQ's a few times while here and it worked just fine, there was even charcoal for us to use! I know that gas fired BBQ in Mexico are unusual as you cannot purchase propane in Playa, so charcoal is fine!
The safe was easy to use with a code provided to us. We kept our valuables in there the whole time we stayed and felt secure in the knowledge that they were secure.
The property managers were helpful and took great pains to be sure we were happy and our needs were met!
If you're lucky enough to get to Playa Del Carmen, be sure to book this condo! You won't regret it for a second!
I wish there was a review of this listing before we booked our stay. It would have saved us a lot of stress and distruptance during what was supposed to be a relaxing holiday week. This listing is absolutely NOT accurate. The rooftop is disgusting and the Jacuzzi DOES NOT WORK. The owner told us that this happens all the time, and that it was OUR responsibility to check the jacuzzi when we checked in. How does that make any sense?! We booked this place in good faith, and assumed that he presented the condo accurately and honestly.
In addition to the disgusting rooftop and malfunctioning jacuzzi, the safe does not work, and for us this was also very important. We contacted the management company and they told us they would come by with the safe key but never did. So again, I contacted them for the key to the safe and they failed to leave it as they promised. So the entire stay we had to worry about whether or not our valuables were safe in the condo. When I contacted the owner he didn't even respond. Truly disgusting.
One of the main reasons we booked this condo is because of the rooftop and even more specifically the jacuzzi & BBQ. We even asked the owner in an email if there was definitely a BBQ and he told us yes (I have plenty of email correspondence verifying everything if interested I will forward). We arrive to the condo, check out the place and realize there is no BBQ...what a surprise! I contact the owner and he actually responded and said they would try to get one. Three days into our trip they brought a tiny charcoal grill - which was very nice and we were very appreciative however it was irritating that we didn't get it until almost halfway into our trip and that it wasn't there when we arrived as previously promised.
All in all you should STAY AWAY from this place. The owner didn't respond to any of our emails until we were out of the condo. He was extremely rude and condescending in his response and again I have all the emails to back up my claims. There are plenty of condos available in playa del carmen through homeaway, just make sure you check the reviews and DO NOT make the same mistake we did! DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Feel free to contact me for the email correspondence between me and the owner of the unit.

Owner's Response: The pictures of the rooftop speak for themselves. The safe is electronic and does not have a key. The BBQ was replaced as soon as we were made aware the previous one was missing. It was replaced with the same model that had been there before. Apparently the bottom had rusted out of the old one. I do apologize for the Jacuzzi but the maintenance company assured me it was working two days before this guest arrived. It has since been repaired by replacing the pump. This occurred over Christmas and athough I understand that not everyone is Christian the local people are devout Catholics and observe the holiday as a Holy time. I cannot blame them for not fixing the Jacuzzi as immediately as the guest expected. "When I contacted the owner he didn't even respond. Truly disgusting." It was Christmas and I too was visiting friends and relatives. I replied upon my return when I became aware that this guest was requesting to stay additional days at no charge in compensation. This was not possible as new guests were arriving. We seldom rent our unit to stangers and this experience has made me even more wary. The maintenance company is Bliss Vacation Rentals. I have great faith in Karen and Iliana and believe they did everything humanly possible to make the stay of this guest as pleasant as possible. I love my condo, the local people, the beatiful beaches, and the fantastic food. Although I can't expect everyone to appreciate what I beleive is one of the most beatiful places on this continent, I certainly don't see that this review is justified.
