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.

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

We returned last night from a four night stay at El Meridian Penthouse in Playa Del Carmen Mexico. First off I need to mention how nice Playa Del Carmen is. We had spent the previous 4 nights up in Cancun which was fun beach time but nothing really for a family to do except hotel stuff. Playa Del Carmen is charming and interesting with ton's of stuff to do that don't require weeks of planning. In the fact the next time we will book tickets rent the penthouse and just chill for a week or so and do whatever we feel like doing that day. Playa is very walkable and no creeps hanging about....We travel in Asia for work and I found folks in the Yucatan to be very sweet and fun to be with. Having said that I do need to mention how nice it was dealing with Laura and Viviane. Laura P was very prompt and clear in her replies throughout the booking process and made valuable suggestions before we left. Our host Viviane was there to greet us upon our arrival and made sure everything was clean and working properly. We needed a new blender and the next day after coming home there it was brand new in the box. Viviane was invaluable in helping plan activities and where to eat etc....It's so nice knowing that you have someone...very comforting. The ability to cook our breakfast do our laundry each day have snacks ready in the fridge for the next days outing...priceless. I don't think hotels are for us anymore. Thanks Laura and Viviane from our family to yours.

Great stay & close to Beach

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice third floor condo with a private rooftop. It was well taken care of and included a mid week cleaning. The location is a two block walk to the beach, and about 10 minute walk to Mamitas Beach Club. You are also a two block walk to 5th Avenue, the main shopping street in Playa. The condo is located on the far north end of 5th Ave. There is a shared rooftop pool at the condo, which is usually pretty quiet. There is a great deal of construction taking place around this condo, and there is no ocean view, even from the rooftop, due to all the building that has occurred. Viviane, the concierge, was great and provide us with a list of places to eat and visit. We had a great stay!
