Why Sandra Barber chose Playa del Carmen

We had all been traveling to Playa for several years and decided to locate here. We liked the look of Pueblito Escondido and its location. Because we all live in the U.S., we cannot come to Playa all of the time, so we like to share our apartment with others who do come to Playa for a visit. We love the rooftop terrace and the private pool, but also use the common pool areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick thank you for a wonderful time at Pueblito. You sure have the best view in the complex. We hope to return sometime next year and will be sure to give you a call. Thanks again.

This outdoor terrace has its own private swimming pool and sundeck as well as comfortable seating for 6 - 8 people. From this terrace, the view of the Caribbean is spectacular.

A great place to stay in Playa

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Spring Break in Playa and we loved Pueblito Escondido. It's very quiet and on a nice street tucked away next to the beach (the beach is wonderful). The condo was perfect for us and our two small kids (ages 5 and 6). It will be nice when there is some kind of food service at the hotel so the 10-minute walk isn't necessary for every meal, but that factor is minor compared to how much we enjoyed everything else. The community pools were exceptionally quiet while we were there, so we opted not to take our kids there to keep from disturbing the other pool-goers. Since we were fortunate to have our own pool, it worked out just perfectly. Also, there are no beach chairs or umbrellas available for guests of the hotel to use, but we found that we really didn't need anything more than beach towels, sunscreen and a cooler since the condo was just a few steps away. We loved it and can't wait to return again soon.

Another favorite to add to our list

  • 5 of 5

While we vacation in Playa regularly, this was our first stay at Pueblito Escondido. What a great find! The resort was beautiful, well maintained and quiet, yet easily accessible to all that 5th Avenue and beyond has to offer. The condo was excellent, providing us with everything we needed. It was comfortable, well equipped and the perfect size. It was nice to sit on the balcony each morning watching the day come alive. The private rooftop pool was fantastic, providing us with great views of the beach and ocean, which were steps away from the building.

Sandra was very helpful in our planning and we would definitely recommend renting her condo. It made our time in Playa one of our best yet.

Clean, comfortable condo with lovely pools-- steps from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Sandra, the owner, was very helpful and responsive and the condo was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked. Our children loved the rooftop plunge pool and ground floor pool-- we had it nearly to ourselves during our stay! Walked right onto beach every day to play in the mild waves. Easy walk to restaurants on 5th-- but also really enjoyed Chupi Chupi right next door. Some noise from nearby restaurant/club on Saturday night but pretty quiet otherwise. Would recommend if you are looking for a safe place where you can explore 5th and the surrounding areas and be right by the beach.

Really fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We went to Playa Del Carmen mostly for golf and really enjoyed our time at Pueblito Escondido. It was just a quick drive to some of the worlds most beautiful courses. The condo was nice and spacious which is great when you have a bunch of golf bags and gear. We will definitely be back the next time we take a trip to Playa Del Carmen.

The hotel staff was really helpful and we really enjoyed having the kitchen so we could keep things in the fridge and eat a quick breakfast in the morning. Everything was clean, working, and very nice. We also enjoyed the beach, and a couple of nights we walked over to the street with all of the clubs and restaurants (very very short walk).

All in all it was an easy great place to stay.
