Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days in this lovely apartment. It is large and airy and perfectly located near 5th avenue and the beach and yet quite quiet at night.

We very much appreciated the kind assistance of Viviane, who manages the apartment and rapidly responded to some issues that we encountered in addition to providing us with information about restaurants etc.

We never used the apartment for cooking but it seemed well equipped to do so if that was your interest. Large jugs of safe water was provided. The place has decks on two levels but the best thing of the apartment was the rooftop private patio which we used each day. It is the perfect place to relax and have a drink at the end of the day. The beds were comfortable and there was ample closet space. The washer and dryer was very convenient. The TV has Netflix which was very nice and better than just having TV.

The location allowed easy access to the 5th avenue restaurants. We basically went to Chez Celine's french bakery for breakfast and tried a variety of spots for dinner. I would recommend Piollo for pizza and the local Thai place. We enjoyed many of the Mexican restaurants and never had a bad meal. Reasonable prices were always the case.

We enjoyed the close proximity of the beach and bought a beach umbrella, which is a necessity (we left this behind). There are beach clubs that are okay but they were a little loud and too Techno beat for our tastes. The umbrella allowed us to access the same nice area of beach with a better spot. Remember to dig a deep hole if you take it to the beach.

I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our five night stay at Penthouse Coco Royal, which is very conveniently located near the restaurants and shops on Fifth Avenue and just a short stroll to the beach. The apartment is incredibly quiet and relaxing and the building's profusion of well-tended greenery in the common areas are refreshingly welcome after a long, hot day. The building's water is supplied by tanker truck -- apparently a common occurrence in Playa del Carmen. Perhaps as a result, the showers can best be described as anemic.

Viviane, the manager, is terrific. She was always available and attentive to our inquiries. Besides meeting us at the ferry and escorting us to the condo, she arranged transportation to the airport and some wonderful excursions. Ask her about the guided tour of Muyil, Sian Ka'an and Tulum -- it's a must.

Beautiful condo in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Laura and Viviane for another great time in Playa. This property is "as advertised," with a large outdoor space upstairs which is completely private, and where we spent our mornings and evenings al fresco. The shared pool was a little crowded at times, but we were there during the New Years holiday, so it was not unexpected. We spent every day at the beach anyway, which is literally one block away, as is 5th Avenue with all of its shops and restaurants. The house is N of Constituyentes a few blocks and is in a more residential part of Playa.

The bedrooms are large and comfortable, and both are en suite. Including the outdoor space, there are four bathrooms, which was great. The living room was cozy with comfy sofas, where we watched a couple of movies on Netflix. The kitchen is adequately equipped, and we cooked breakfast everyday. Laura has purchased a new fridge with cold filtered water. Plus you have a washer/dryer, which we took advantage of.

Viviane, the property manager, is very sweet, and went above and beyond in helping us with some luggage issues, as well as giving us wonderful restaurant and excursion tips. We spent our last day in Tulum and took a dip in a local cenote. Laura suggested Au Cacao for cappuccino...the best!

The only reason we could not give a fifth star was due to water issues which were afflicting Playa during the holiday. It was spotty at times, though Laura and Viviane did everything they could to keep us informed and to keep the water flowing!

Thanks again for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family at the penthouse! I know your trip started out tough loosing your luggage on the way to Playa, we did everything we could to help with that. I'm happy that you enjoyed my manager Vivianne's level of concierge service, as an owner I am trilled that she has made my guests so happy with helping organize fun trips in town and organize transport. The town of Playa had water supply issues during the busiest week of the year, out of our control but we tried to do everything we could to keep you with water supply at the building. You will be happy to know the water supply issues have been solved. When you return you fill find it flowing normally, as always.Thank you so much for choosing our penthouse. We welcome you back anytime !

Great Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much to Laura and her team for a great vacation. The accommodations were very comfortable and had all the amenities promised. The location was perfect, far enough away from the action so noise wasn't an issue but close enough that a short walk placed us right in the middle of things! If you enjoy dinning, shopping, the beach, and tours this is a great destination.

The only concern I'd consider is your willingness or ability to walk - walking is the best way to experience the area and we tended to do a lot of it which we quite enjoyed.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong staying at the Meridian Penthouse in Playa Del Carmen! My 5 girlfriends and myself made this beautiful place our home for 5 days and four nights and we couldn't have been more comfortable....or happier! The owner Laura is just a phone call or email away and will share her travel tips before you even arrive which I found to be incredibly helpful. Viviane the Property Manager/Concierge was available 24/7 to ensure that our stay was the best it could be....and it was even better than I ever imagined! From arranged airport transport and pickup to restaurant and beach recommendations, we were taken care of from beginning to end. The roof deck and pool are amazing - although the pool is shared by other units, we felt like we were the only ones there (and we were!) The view from the deck is one in a million - be sure to enjoy a margarita or two while sitting under the stars. I can't wait to go back!
