About Tom and Rita Jackson

Rita and I are retired and live in a small town close to Austin, Texas. We adore each other and have been married over 40 years. We have two great son's and are a very close family. Our son's also live and work in the Austin area, which makes it easy to keep in close touch. We are very laid back and love to travel and enjoy exploring all of God's beautiful creations. We also love to play golf together and try to hit the course two to three times a week.

We love visiting in our condo and sincerely hope you achieve as much pleasure as we do. We truly want you to be completely satisfied and will do everything we can to make sure you are.

Tom and Rita Jackson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tom and Rita Jackson chose Playa del Carmen

When Rita and I decided to purchase a condo to vacation in we traveled all over the Caribbean and West Coast searching for the perfect location. After traveling to Jamaica, Panama, Grand Cayman, and even Acapulco, we kept coming back to Playa. It had absolutely everything we were looking for. It is safe, easy to access, and stunningly beautiful. The next step was to locate the perfect condo, and we did. After looking all over Playa we discovered the Sabbia Condo Complex and immediately knew our search was over. It has everything we were looking for, and more.

What makes this condo unique

Sabbia Condo's are located in the perfect spot . . . within walking distance to everything . . . the best beaches, 5th Avenue for the exciting night life, boutique shops, and a multitude of restaurants. It has private parking in the underground parking garage with four elevators serving all floors, including the parking garage (rarely found in Playa). Sabbia has 24 hour security and one of the most beautiful pools in all of Playa. The staff is first rate and always friendly, going out of their way to help you in any way they can. Give us a try, we are confident you will be glad you did.

An absolutely awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just recently stayed at this condo. We had the privilege of meeting the owners, Tom and Rita, and they are a very delightful couple and we were so impressed with them. Their condo is very tastefully decorated and a very comfortable condo to stay in and entertain. Their washer/dryer are absolutely awesome - the best. Everything about this condo is top notch. We have stayed at other condos in the area but this one tops all of them. The security at this building is great so you feel absolutely safe and the front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. 5th avenue is just around the corner and the condo is located close to any kind of activity you want to do. I would definitely recommend this condo and we want to stay there again in the future.

Great Property but do your research on beach conditions

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Sabbia and Tom and Rita were most accommodating to our needs. Their condo is very comfortable and clean and the pool area and game room were nice features. My problem was definitely not with the accommodations! My suggestion is to do your research on the beach conditions in the Playa del Carmen and Cancun areas before you go. The sargassum (seaweed) was so thick in some areas that it basically made the beach areas unusable. We spent a bit of time driving from beach to beach trying to find a good area to be! Many of the beautiful blue waters and white sandy beach pictures that you see online were unfortunately just not part of our experience! I think that the cities/government need to invest in beach clean up efforts to make Mexico a desirable vacation destination again. As travelers we have many tropical destination options--unfortunately we will think twice (and do our research!) before booking Playa del Carmen again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of our property and we appreciate your gracious comments about your accommodations. Rita and I work very hard to make sure our guests enter into a condo that is presented and furnished to their utmost satisfaction. We are sincerely disappointed to hear of your experience on the beaches. Rita and I spent the last two weeks in November at the condo and there was very little sargassum on the beach, almost none. My 93 year old mother was with us for the first time and commented on how beautiful the water and beaches were. Although we have no control over the arrival of sargassum on the beach, we certainly apologize for this happening and will contact the appropriate officials and encourage them to find a solution and react with the highest urgency. Playa relies heavily on tourists and cannot afford to let this happen. They have no control over its arrival either, but they must be more aggressive in cleaning it up. Thanks again for your review and especially for updating us on the beach conditions. Tom & Rita

Modern Condo In A Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The condominium is located in a clean and secure neighborhood in a great location. The beach and 5th Avenue are easily within walking distance.

The attendants at the front desk were friendly, informative, and spoke English typically at a conversational level.

The apartment is very clean, modern, and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable. Everything needed for our stay was available.

Two of the 3 air conditioning units worked well for our entire stay. The 2nd bedroom unit stopped working at the very end of our stay, but the unit in the living area had enough capacity to help cool both rooms.

A number of restaurants were nearby. Chiltepin was good and very close. Our favorite restaurant, Nativo, was just a few blocks away.

We would have given a 5 star rating, but the Wi-Fi in the apartment did not work during our entire stay. Although inconvenient, we were able to use the Wi-Fi in the business office and an adjacent apartment provide a weak signal that worked some of the time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review of our condo. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how your stay was and what we could do to make it even better. The A/C in the guest bedroom had a capacitor go bad and my property manager replaced it immediately. As for the WiFi, we have been diligently working with the provider to get it repaired. I have even authorized an upgrade to the Internet to make sure we have excellent WiFi in our condo once the problem is corrected. As with most things in Mexico, things often move very slowly but we certainly apologize for your inconvenience. Thanks again for all your comments and we hope to see you again soon! Tom & Rita

Relaxing ,secure, & beautiful accommodations!.

  • 5 of 5

My husband Jim and I have nothing but good things to say about our stay at Sabbia Condo. We were delighted to find everything we needed at the condo to make us comfortable. We felt safe and the staff were always very friendly and helpful. It was awesome to be so close to all we were hoping to do. We loved 5th Avenue, the beach, wonderful restaurants, some within a block of the condo, also the pool was very clean and never crowded. We rented a car a couple of days to go deep-sea fishing, and to experience Tulum and to snorkel at Akumal.

Rita and Tom definitely did their research when they purchased this property.

Wonderful condo in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an absolutely ideal vacation in Playa del Carmen. This condo is so modern, clean, and well equipped. Fifth avenue is just steps away and the closest beach is breathtaking. The pool area was relaxing, and lots of fun for the kids. We really enjoyed the international mix of the other guests staying at the property. The condo itself is super clean, modern, and well appointed. We were able to prepare all of our meals which saved us a significant amount of money. The condo had an ample amount of towels and having the washer and dryer was wonderful. The underground parking was a definite plus. The staff was very friendly and helpful as was the property management company. The check in and check out process was extremely smooth. I could go on and on. You cannot go wrong with this property. Staying here made this vacation as perfect as it could have been. Thanks so much Tom and Rita.....I wish that we would have stayed the whole month. Saludos and thank you (-:

Playa del Carmen is a unique Caribbean paradise hidden away from the tourist crowds of Cancun and Cozumel. Whether it's a nice relaxing day on the beach, scuba diving and snorkeling or active nightlife that you are looking for Playa del Carmen has it all. The beaches are white and pristine, the water is one of the most beautiful shades of turquoise you will ever see, and the people are always so friendly. World famous 5th Ave is just a 3 minute walk from your doorstep and is bustling with activity both day and night. Great restaurants and bars, 100s of quaint shops, more to see than most people can accomplish in a day. If Mayan ruins, swimming with huge sea turtles or dolphins or water/adventure parks are more your thing, all of those can be found close by. The only thing you will be left wanting is more time to spend here!
