We didn't want to go home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i love the Playa del Carmen area, but we are used to staying at high end all-inclusive resorts. For our recent trip, we decided to change it up a little and rent a condo. We are soooo happy we did. We may never stay at an all-inclusive resort again.

The area where the condo is located is close to everything: Shopping, beach, restaurants, ferry to Cozumel, etc. Its in a safe and secure neighborhood. I went out for morning runs everyday i was there and it was so enjoyable. I usually hate exercising on vacation but i couldn't wait to get out each morning!

Even though we enjoyed the restaurants (thanks for the recommendations Judy and Heidi) we also had fun walking to Mega to get groceries for breakfast and snacks. Its probably a 10 minute walk. I think it really helps to immerse yourself into area when you shop the local stores.

Now for the condo itself... It had 99% of what we needed. The only thing we would change is a tv in the bedroom. Thats it. Everything was clean, well maintained and we loved the decor. It felt so homey. Yes, it was in the midst of the clubs and bars, but it didn't bother us one bit. We didn't need ear plugs (which i brought due to previous reviews), or the noise machine.

Working with Judy and Steve, plus Heidi was a breeze! We will definitely be renting Villas Sacbe #5 again!!

Cozy and clean little condo

  • 3 of 5

We just came back from our 4 nights stay there. Very clean and cozy. Very close to the beach and the popular 5th ave. For sure a place to sit outside will be nice, there is just no room for it. Perfect for people who love night life but if you want to sleep bring your ear plugs. The boom boom of the Clubs kept us up every night. We heard it was a music festival that week-end (til 6am) but still loud on Monday and Tuesday.

Great condo, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This place is really beautiful and decorated with very good taste. The customer service from Judy, Steve and Heidi were excellent. Location is also perfect to get to 5th ave, the beach and the bus station from where you can get to a lot of the nice places around very easily (Tulum, Chichen Itza, Cancun). Only inconvenience I found was the noticeable noise due the close proximity to the clubs which start at 10 pm and last through late in the morning. It personally wasn't a big issue for me because I would come late anyway or I was too tired to notice it, but for somebody looking for a very quiet, relaxed place it could be a problem.

Great little condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 3 night stay. The condo was exactly as portrayed on the web site. Location was perfect close to the beach and 5th Ave. Noise from the clubs was noticeable but not to the point where it bothered us. Judy and Heidi were awesome to work with and very informative. Thanks to Willy for looking after our luggage. We would definitely stay at this great little condo again. The only suggestion my husband had was it would of been nice to have chairs outside the doors for a morning coffee or a drink at night.

Close to Everything

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip South and it was a perfect location for us. It was close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The fridge is larger now than in the picture and the condo was as pretty as it looks online. As can happen in high humidity areas, the bedroom was a bit musty but some Febreeze took care of that and I had no trouble (I admit I have a very sensitive nose - my husband didn't notice it at all). Staff were helpful and courteous. It is close to the clubs and as we were there during a festival week, we needed earplugs at night but they completely blocked the background beat and we slept like babies. During the day noise was minimal. Beds were firm and comfy. Pool was a great place to have a dip after a hot day. We felt very safe there and I'd recommend it to anyone. We had breakfast in the condo every day and cooked our own dinner four evenings. There are two grocery stores within walking distance (Walmart and Mega) with good meat and veg selection. Walmart had Splenda, lemonade concentrate and tequila, so I made some field expedient low-sugar margaritas! We had a great time and came back with Pesos in our pocket. I'd highly recommend it for the independent traveler or couple who wants something different than an all inclusive. An extra chair to take the air on the patio would be a nice addition. The owner was very considerate and helpful. I would recommend this condo to my friends.

Playa del carmen

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just recently stayed at Villa Sacbe and truley enjoyed our stay. Judy was easy to work with when setting up our stay. The condo and its accommodations were as stated on the VRBO site. The condo was clean and the staff were available when needed. Also enjoyed trying the many restuarants suggested by Judy and Steve. Food was great !!! Would also like to add one more to this list as we enjoyed going to the WaWa beach club on calle 2 and the beach close to the ferry. Food was great and there was live music many days and evenings. Must try the Sunday BBQ it is excellent. A great place to stay!!!
