My husband and I stayed at the penthouse for one week from December 14, 2013. This was our first time in Playa and at this penthouse. Coming from New York, we loved having so much space to ourselves. The first day we went to the Walmart nearby to buy groceries and some snacks for the week. We also found the convenience store at the end of the street very useful. We had breakfast every morning in the kitchen which is huge, then we alternated between going to the pool upstairs and the beach other days. We liked going to the Royal beach club across the street which has some excellent food and music! Having Satellite TV was very convenient, we were able to watch some reality shows in English. We liked having the private terrace just for us in the evening after coming back from the pool or the beach. We are thinking of coming back perhaps with another couple. The place is perfect for two couples because there are two good size bedrooms each with its own bathroom. As for the activities, we went one day snorkeling tour to Cozumel which was great, thanks for the info! The only thing I would suggest is to have more information about car rentals, however the taxis are very cheap, and 5th avenue is a short walk away. The shuttle that you suggested to/from the airport was good. Overall, we had a great vacation!
