Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time in this lovely condo! It was my friends first time in Playa Del Carmen and she was more than impressed. Close to Mamitas and all the shopping. We could walk everywhere within the city. Not too far of a drive from Tulum and Akumal. Go to Au Cacao downstairs and skip Starbucks across the street! Was fantastic for getting late night pizza on the way home too. The unit even included beach towels, which was fantastic since we made it to the beach every day. Thank you again Shayne!! Highly recommend!

This place is ideal for four people. Right on 5th avenue. All of the best restaurants just below, and a five minute walk to the beach. easy parking nearby.

Great to have two large terrace areas with good views......the jacusi was fun !

Jorge was helpful, and the appartment very clean. Everything one needs there. l would certainly return.

A big thanks to all

Let me start off by saying thank you so much for the exceptional service and kindness the property manager, Jorge gave us. The condo is amazingly beautiful, located right on 5th Ave, close to everything, restaurants, shops, clubs etc.. The photos don’t do justice, its spacious, with large rooms, tons of closet space, and the balcony overlooking 5th Ave was pretty sweet, not to mention the top floor with the Jacuzzi, we couldn’t be happier. The condo came super equipped with everything you may need. Simply perfect. Communication with the manager and property owner was smooth and easy. I would highly recommend to stay there, you will not be disappointed. We also had few of our friends over that we’re equally impressed. I will definitely be returning again. Thank you once again for making this such a wonderful experience being it was our first time to Playa del Carmen.

And just to comment on this last reviewer that left a horrible review, please go get a life and go rent a 5 star hotel then. The “cushions seats were dirty”, really?? They are meant to be outside and logically will get dirty due to rain. So if these mirror details bother you, please stay at a hotel with all the hassle they come with, instead of feeling like you’re at home.

High end penthouse condo, affordable rates!

  • 5 of 5

First, if reading reviews to help decide where to stay, you should completely disregard the review from November 2015. My husband and I stayed in this condo for 6 nights in early December 2015 and it is FABULOUS! We have stayed in a different condo each time we visit Playa (1-2 times per year) and my husband was very impressed with this one. The best we've ever booked. We heard no construction and the jacuzzi was fully functional. The kitchen is insane, full size everything and in perfect shape! Every utensil and kitchen item we needed was there. The outdoor space is ideal. We spent so much time on the balcony/deck off the kitchen. It's a great space. We ate a few breakfasts and dinners out there and watched some basketball and football games on my tablet while having some wine. The wifi is flawless. NEVER have we stayed at a condo where we were able to stream movies/tv but we could here! Also, it's in an awesome location (loved having Ah Cacao coffee and chocolate croissant for breakfast and a frappé for a mid-day cool down). We love Don Chendo's pizza and they were able to deliver easily to the condo for a cozy night of pizza, salad and wine. We also found some other great restaurants that we had never been to before that knocked our socks off (try La Famiglia, you won't be disappointed!). The closets were a major bonus as well as the bathrooms (lots of towels as well as beach towels). Loved the skylight in the master bathroom! In case you are curious, there's a hair dryer and stereo ;-) My husband loved the large candles throughout the condo, as well. Loved the layout of the condo and it was very clean. We stayed there solo, but this would be a perfect condo to share with friends or a larger family. The beds were both extremely comfortable (better than our bed at home, lol). It is a penthouse, so be prepared to walk up 2 levels of stairs outdoors to get to the condo entrance, but it's a great wide staircase with railing and easy to climb. The literally only 'room for improvement' suggestion I could offer would be that it would be nice to have a bottle or two of water in the fridge upon arrival. Checking in and out with the property manager Jorge was easy-peasy. He showed us how everything worked and arrived to the condo early to turn on the a/c (zones for each room PLUS ceiling fans) to make it comfy for us. The condo owner, Shayne, was great to rent from. Top notch communication by both phone and email. I hope to rent this condo again VERY soon!

Disappointing Experience and Misrepresented

  • 1 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights from Nov 4-6. It was one of the worst experiences we’ve had with VRBO. The condo was completely misrepresented and there was loud construction surrounding the unit at all hours of the morning, afternoon and early evening. The property manager, Jorge, met us at the condo and showed us around, and put a half-used sample size shampoo bottle in one of the showers. He took us on the roof and took 2 dirty seat cushion covers out of the outside closet area for us and set them down next to the lounge chairs.

The main reason we booked this specific condo was because of the Jacuzzi on the roof. When we went up to the roof, not only was the Jacuzzi filthy, but the motor was missing. When I brought this to the attention of the owner, Shayne, via email, she responded by stating that she thought the repairs would have been done by the time we arrived and it appeared they hadn’t because of recent storms and pushed the blame onto the property manager. She also stated that she was offended that I wouldn’t find her condo worth the money, even if the Jacuzzi was out of commission. She ended up refunding us $10 per night ($20 total since we stayed two nights), which was really a joke. If this were a hotel, that would be a completely unacceptable response.

In addition to the Jacuzzi situation, I’d also like to state that there was a blood stain (or chocolate stain?) on the sheets in the master bedroom, which we documented via photo. I’ve never written a negative review on this site, and it makes me feel bad to do so, but this experience was just really disappointing. One other random thing I’d like to mention. The day that the property manager came to return our cash deposit, he got to the condo 1 hour early (10:30am instead of 11:30am) just as we had gotten back from coffee and walking around. He actually waited out in the living room area for us to shower and get our stuff together instead of leaving and coming back in an hour. This was the most awkward and uncomfortable thing ever.

Owner's Response: Hi, Danielle. I'm truly heartbroken to see that you disliked your experience staying at my penthouse so much that you felt the need to write this very angry review. I've had my property listed on this site for over 9 years, and you're the first person to have had a disappointing experience. I am sorry that the jacuzzi was still in repair. I did apologize for that, and it was set to be fixed the next morning which you declined because of your short stay. You requested compensation which I've never had to deal with before with any of my guests, so I offered you $10 per night to make up for the broken jacuzzi. You never responded or in any way let me know that you thought that was a laughable amount, or complained about any of these other things. If you had communicated with me, we could have come to an agreeable solution, but you never responded to any of my emails. This is a very sad day for me.
