We are a family from Canada who has been delighting in the beaches of Playa Del Carmen for more than 15 years. We especially appreciate the idea of having peaceful solitude at Condo MAR, while being able to enjoy the local flavors, music and hospitality that Playa del Carmen offers just blocks from the condo.

Jordan purchased this condo in 2005

Condo MAR H20 is easy to get to -- fly into Cancun Airport and drive south 35 miles. We always feel safe in Playa del Carmen. We find that PDC offers any kind of vacation you choose -- from active diving and sight-seeing, to long, lazy days at the beach. The people are friendly and helpful -- even if you don't speak Spanish, you won't have a problem with communication.

Condo MAR was built in 2005, and is clean and modern. The 15 ft. balcony doors keep the condo light and sunny. Sun-blocker shades in both bedrooms compliment sleepy mornings and afternoon siestas. The central air is zoned for each bedroom, and the bedrooms are separated by the living room / dining room for privacy. Perhaps the best feature: is Esperanza, our property manager in PDC. She will take very good care of you!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful location for ANY AND EVERYTHING you want to do. Blocks from the shopping and dining on 5th Ave., blocks from the beach and steps from cab stand that will take you anywhere you want to go such as Tulum, Xcaret, etc. Be sure and book a tour with Yucatreks. Wonderful tours for the family as well as couples. Be sure to take a swim in the onsite cenote and indulge yourself with an excellent massage/facial at the salon two blocks away. Be sure to get a home cooked Mexican meal prepared in the condo while you are there.

PERFECT VACATION IN PLAYA

  • 5 of 5
Perfect Vacation in Playa
We stayed in condo Mar the last week of Feb 2014. It was 4 of us: my parents, my husband and I. We found the condo and service excellent in every aspect:

1. Appearance and amenities.
The condo was spacious, very clean and light. Beds were comfortable. I slept better than at home. All appliances were in great condition and easy to use. And we enjoyed having a full kitchen. My parents had breakfast on the balcony every morning and absolutely loved it.

2. Location.
The condo is located in Playacar. We have been in Playa del Carmen once before and stayed on 5th Avenue. We liked Playacar much better. It was safe, close to the beach and it was nice not having to hear pushy sales people every time we exited the condo.
Condo Mar is located in gated community and it is much more quiet and peaceful than condos on 5th Avenue. The beach was only a few minutes away and it was beautiful, not crowded and had many restaurants that were perfect for lunch or dinner. My parents loved going to the beach early in the morning to watch the sunrise and swim. Something they do not get to do much during Russian winters. :)
The pool and private cenote were great, too. My husband and dad swam in the cenote several times and said that it was an unforgettable experience.
5th Avenue, 10th Avenue and the Pier were all within walking distance. We walked to nearby restaurants every day. Selection of restaurants in Playa is huge. We tried a new place every day and were happy with all of them – food was tasty and the service was always excellent. Our most favorite place for dinner was La Mission. La Vagabunda and Casa Adela’s were good, too. For lunch, we really enjoyed Fusion. It was overall great, but the part we liked the most was its location – right on the beach. We could feel cool breeze and watch sea waves while enjoying tasty food and drinks.

3. Service.
The owners (Jordan and Rebecca) and property managers (Esperanza and Alex) were absolute pleasure to work with. They made all arrangements extremely easy for us. We were greeted by the airport upon arrival. Then we met Esperanza and Alex the same night. They made us feel very welcome. Esperanza checked on us throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed.

From beginning to end our stay in Condo Mar was absolutely perfect. It was an unforgettable trip for all of us. My parents described it as “Best Vacation Ever”. And we absolutely agree. I am sure we will be back.

RELAXATION AND OCEAN BEACH - PLAYA DEL CARMEN AT IT'S BEST

Relaxation and ocean beach - Playa Del Carmen at it's best
  • 5 of 5
We've been to Playa Del Carmen (Playacar) several times; both condo rentals and all-inclusive resorts - and choosing a condo that is a stone’s throw from 5th Avenue and the beach is best of both worlds.

The condo is as described, well furnished, Wi-Fi (which is a must when travelling) and adequately supplied with all the beach amenities required to enjoy the many sunny hours on the Riviera Mayan. A short walk to the beach with our chairs, cooler, suntan lotion, and supplied towels where we enjoyed the view to Cozumel, wonderful beach strolls to the north and south of the uncrowded public beach. During our 10 day stay we knew the security guards, grounds keeping staff for the condo grounds and even the security to the public beach.
Playacar is a very safe place and we miss our late hour walks to 5th avenue where we had supper most nights and enjoyed the many musical venues. Upon arrival we purchased food at Walmart for our breakfast and lunches along with our beverage of choice.

If you want the all-inclusive Hilton, then you could be missing out on what the area has to offer. The condo rental is large and feels like a home. Access to the pool without kids (yes we have kids) is very relaxing. The beach is the same as other resorts in the area and my cooler had non watered down drinks. The kitchen allowed us to prepare food like home at our leisure and not on a resort time. The variety of food down 5th provided a real taste of authentic food from the area.

Our trip was not only enjoyable, but relaxing and you know the owner cares about his property and your stay when he sends you an email during your visit asking if everything is alright?
Thanks for the flowers upon our arrival, a nice touch.
Would we return, si!

A VACATION OUR FAMILY WILL NEVER FORGET!

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time in Playa Del Carmen and our first time staying at Casa Serendipity. Let me tell you that the condo, grounds, security, owners and the property manager Esperanza was second to none. The condo was bright, spacious and immaculate. The beds reminded us of heavenly beds. It had such a tranquil feel to it and we already miss being there!! Condo was only a two minute to the beach which was definitely one of the nicest beaches we've ever visited. Soft, fluffy white sand and clear turquoise water. It was breathtaking to say the least and very warm. The house manager Esperanza and her family prepared two spectacular dinners for our family in the condo. They served fresh fish one night and authentic Mexican food another night. They brought the food, cooked it and cleaned up. What an experience. Definitely worth trying this if you stay at this condo. The condo had lots of tv's and games so our kids were never bored. We also loved swimming in the Cenote. Climbing down a little later and jumping into the fresh water Cenote was an experience that will resignate with us forever. Swimming under the waterfall in cool water was so refreshing. It was conveniently located right beside the pool so we swam in it everyday. The kids loved it. We highly recommend this condo to people with children or for a romantic getaway. It is definitely one of the best vacation experiences we're ever had. I really can't say anything bad about this place, it was perfect. Thank you for sharing your condo with our family. We'll be back next year for sure!!

GREAT CONDO IN THE BEST LOCATION IN PLAYA DEL CARMEN!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY!!!! This condo is absolutely perfect for anyone visiting Playa Del Carmen who is looking for peace, quiet, and relaxation only 5 minutes from the beach and Playa's main street, 5th Avenue. This spacious and well-appointed condo has everything that you need for a relaxing and enjoyable time, including free Wi-Fi. We felt safe and secure at all times, as on-site security is constantly patrolling the complex. The owners are terrific and Esperanza, the property manager, is the very best. This is our second stay in this condo and we would never consider staying anywhere else when visiting this area. IT IS THE VERY BEST!!!!

SIMPLY AMAZING.....OUR WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Your condo is beautiful, and we have genuinely enjoyed our stay. The area between the condo grounds and the beach is remarkable. Esperanza (manager) was the best!! She made sure our stay was perfect which it was. We went to all the recommended restaurants and enjoyed every one. We feel in love with Playa Del Carmen and the beach was truly spectacular. It wasn't until we were there that we realized just what a great location it was. It was only minutes to town (5th Avenue) and the beach. It was a perfect family get together. Thank you for your part in creating great memories. We will definitely be back!

This condo has the best of both worlds. It is only a few minutes to the beach and a few minutes to downtown. You are only minutes from the world famous 5th Avenue that includes amazing restaurants, bars and shopping. You can lay low and relax by the pool and cenote or spend the day at the beach. If you are more adventurous there are many tours and activities that are no more than a 30 minute drive from the condo. Drive to Akumel and go snorkeling if you want to see stingrays and massive sea turtles, take the ferry to Cozumel and scuba/snorkel the 2nd largest reef in the world, rent a car or buggy and drive to Tulum, parasail or rent jetski's on the beach in Playacar, take the kids to wild water kingdom in Cancun or go shopping at their duty free mall, go deep sea fishing, swim with whale sharks in Puerto Morales (near Cancun), take a taxi or drive to Explore that has two zip line courses with some runs landing in the water (very cool), atv's that drive through the jungle and cenotes, swim through underwater cenotes (caves), or visit Xel-Cha and go snorkeling or swim with the Dolphins. For a complete list of activities or if you want some suggestions please feel free and call as we know the area extremely well.
