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 Quintana Roo

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. ;)

Best vacation Ever! View was amazing. Perfect Host.

  • 5 of 5

Ola John, your Best Of Playa Condo was perfect. Very close to 5th Ave, restaurants and of course beach. We had 3 couples staying in unit and we never felt tight for space. All ammenties worked fine and phone and wifi worked great.The patio ,where we spent most of our condo time was the best. Mari can a few times to clean and looked great afterwards.We cooked in a few times, BBQ steaks and Mahi Mahi on the grill.

We met Robin at the pool bar and had a great time with him and the young man cooking our lunches, as well as the very friendly lady at the lobby desk.

Dinner at local restaurants was amazing, Carboncitos, Casa Sofia and Rancheroes to name a few . We ventured to the "Catch" rooftop bar and lounge in the Thomson hotel. What a view, never felt like you were in Mexico from there.

We shopped at Walmart for groceries and found everything we needed as well the local OXXO store. Bud Light and Coors Light were easy to get .

We did a fishing charter and caught some Mahi Mahi , (go out of gatehouse and turn left across the street). He lived in Toronto for many years and spoke great English. Very fun day!

Gorge picked us up and delivered us back to airport safely and on time, great man. Thanks

Great condo and perfect location.

Thank you John for being so easy to deal with, it was a pleasure dealing with you.

We hope to be regulars now !

The best Balacony View in all Playa!

  • 5 of 5

John, We had the family trip never to be forgotten, we truely enjoyed the condo and all it had to offer. It has without doubt one of the best views in Playa and your recommendation for restaurants and Akumal Bay were very much enjoyed by the entire family. We didnt really spend much time in the condo as the beach, pool and pool bar were too inviting. The kitchen was very well equiped althought the only meals we prepared were breakfast and an occasional snack or a few drinks. We did rent a van, although, it certainly wasnt need but was convenient to have to drive around town, down to Puerto Aventura, Akumal and to get groceries. My entire family greatly appreciate the facilities and are already planning our next venture back to Playa Del Carmen.

Owner's Response: Gracias! We are very happy that you had the opportunity to make wonderful memories for years to come and we were able to be a small part of them. I am so glad to hear that the "side trips" were enjoyable as well... and yes, we LOVE the view and size of our terrace and since we were renters for years prior to getting this condo, we know how small and somewhat useless all the other balconies really are. We would love to have you all back! Thanks again!

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 (just south of the Palace Resort formerly the Continental Plaza Hotel).
