THIS IS NOT LIKE ANYTHING AT XAMAN HA... THERE IS NOTHING THAT COMPARES... MORE THAN 3X'S THE LIVING SPACE, AND 3X'S THE TERRACE, PERSONAL HOUSEKEEPER, PERSONAL HOST, HIGH SPEED DSL, UNLIMITED IN AND OUT PHONE CALLS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, A CORDLESS PHONE THAT WORKS AT THE POOL, THE #1 RATED CONDO AT XAMAN HA AND ALSO RATED #1 FOR ALL SPECIALTY PROPERTIES IN PLAYA DEL CARMEN. ALL INCLUDED IN OUR RATE. WASHER & DRYER AVAILABLE (CHARGE BASED UPON # OF GUESTS AND DURATION OF STAY),

Xaman-Ha is a beautiful beach front condo in Playa del Carmen's exclusive 'Playacar' section. Xaman Ha is on the beach just a short walk (aprox. 300 meters) south of the ferry dock to Cozumel in Playa del Carmen.

The Grand Penthouse at Xaman Ha offers a Chef's kitchen and an open dining and living room area.

The balcony or porch off the living room offers a spectacular view to the Caribbean and a chance to enjoy the tropical breeze. The Premier Penthouse unit features the most remarkable views from it's incredible balcony. While other units offer lovely views, this penthouse offers a balcony and view that can't be matched in all of Xaman Ha.

Down by the water, the pool deck is very large with lots of room to sunbathe. An elevated shade pavilion between the pool and beach gives a perfect vantage point for viewing both while comfortably out of the sun. The Xaman Ha pool is tremendous, with a bridge span. Snacks and drinks are served during busy times at the tiled 'bar stool' seats built-in and plenty of shallow area for young swimmers.

Playacar is a manicured up-scale secure gated residential/ hotel area that defines the southern part of Playa del Carmen. It was designed from the ground up to create a sophisticated environment for the tropical lifestyle. Some points of interest within Playacar are small Maya archaeological sites located thru out the area. The Xaman Ha tropical bird aviary has many of the more spectacular bird species to be found in the Yucatan. Sporting attractions include world class fishing, an 18 hole golf course (it includes all drinks and meals), tennis courts and club house.

There is also the beach, shopping at the Plaza Antigua and Plaza Playacar shopping centers the new mall and countless other things to do and see in Playa del Carmen. Playacar is centrally located to all the coastal adventures to be found in the Riviera Maya between Cancun and Tulum.

About John in Playa

Having had a timeshare in Cancun over 29 years ago we took a 'day trip' to Playa del Carmen and have been coming back ever since.

John in Playa purchased this condo in 2000

Why John in Playa chose Playa del Carmen

Having rented just about every available condo at Xaman Ha for 10 years prior to our purchase, we fell in love the location and view and have always wanted to come back.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the all glass front and the triple wide terrace during the day of the Caribbean Sea and the Island of Cozumel in the distance is equally as grand in the evening as the lights on the island glisten off the water in the distance.

RENT THIS CONDO!!! It is a great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really great place to stay!

It has a magnificent view of the beach and ocean. You can see Cozumel on a clear day!!

The grounds are beautiful and the pool is large with 2 bridges and a swim up bar! The beach is really nice and is right in view! No 2 or three block walk to get to the beach !!

The location is great It is about a 2 block walk to reach 5th Avenue which is the main street in Playa Del Carmen for restaurants and shopping. Do be sure to go to the other end of the Avenue - it tends to be more expensive and upscale, but it is all great!.

The inside of the Condo is spacious, with three large bedrooms and 2 full baths. The kitchen, living room and dining room are all large and all have a view of the ocean.

Perhaps the best of all is the HUGE balcony with plenty of furniture where you can hang out ans watch the waves and see cruise ships as they head to Cozumel.

This unit is on the third level and the stairs are easy - my wife has a knees scheduled for surgery in 2 weeks and she navigated them with little problem.

There is free parking in this gated community and a taxi stand at the end of the block, so it is very easy to get around! You do not have to rent a car - in fact it is best to walk or taxi to places on 5th Avenue since parking is very scarce. Maybe 3 blocks to the Cozumel Ferry - less if you cut through the front lot of the hotel next door

The owner is very helpful and attentive. He has lots of tips to share about the Condo and Playa Del Carmen and is also willing and eager to hear of your discoveries - such as an exceptionally good restaurant. He sent us to a little place right on the beach that sold fresh fish dinners at an incredibly good price!

Playa Del Carmen is a great place to spend a vacation, and if you decide to go -

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a perfect location. You can walk anywhere and there really is no need for a car. Taxi's are plentiful if you need them.

The view from the condo is beautiful, it overlooks the grounds and out to the ocean. There is a swim up bar that offers breakfast, lunch, and guacamole and chips (my favorite)! There are nice chairs on the beach with umbrellas and they were always available. The condo itself is very roomy and the balcony is a great spot to hang out. I can't wait to go back!

I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because the place is a little dated.

My first trip to Mexico and I was impressed!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo was within walking distance to shops, restaurants, car rentals, and the ferry to Cozumel. From the first email to the last phone call, John answered all our questions and gave us great suggestions of where to go, what to see, and where to eat. Loved having Jorge pick us up and drop us off at the airport. Mari came twice in the 7 days we were there. Very thorough and very courteous. The woman at the desk downstairs was helpful with arranging our trip to Tulum. The pool bar was not open but we enjoyed both the pool and the beach. I am recommending this condo to other friends and family members and would love to come back again. Thank you John for letting us stay at your condo. It was all you said and more. Ps. The sunrises on the balcony were amazing as were the storms we had the last 2 days.

Owner's Response: Hola Karen & family! Thanks for staying with us for your Mexico vacation! I am so happy you enjoyed our suggestions with regard to places to see and dine and visit off the beaten path, while 5th ave (Quinta Avenida) is the "main attraction" there is SO much more to Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area. Did you make it to La Buena Vida in Tulum? Always a great time and great place to take memorable photos. I am glad you took advantage of the balcony for the sunrises... it is the perfect place to enjoy them with a great cup of coffee... (even though most think that vacation is the time to sleep in... these are NOT to be missed... you can always go back to bed again!) And watching the storms over the sea and the Island of Cozumel are AMAZING either daytime or the "light show" of lightning over Cozumel... spectacular sight to see. (Good thing there is always more sun than storms). We would love to welcome you back to our home, thanks again for staying with us. Also, would love to hear of any place you went to ate at that we need to add to our list, we love to try new places... GRACIAS!

Location, location, location !!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, comfortable and secure, close to 5th Ave restaurants & shops. We walked everywhere. Because we have been here multiple times, it was more of a relaxing "do nothing" vacation, the one tour we did was to Puerto Aventuras for the Dolphin Discovery (wanted to swim with the manatees).

Would recommend this condo to anyone. When John says "best of playa" he means it. ;)
