About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If you’re looking for something different than a 500 unit resort, jam-packed full of people with an all-you-can-eat buffet, the Lotus is a perfect escape for you. The great town of Playa Del Carmen allows you to customize your day into something special, instead of having to eat the same resort food and swim at the same beach every day. Each day you can do something different and it’s easy with the dozens of restaurants and beach clubs all over the town. The amazing beaches, restaurants and night life make Playa Del Carmen the fantastic place it is. Even if you don’t want to go out to eat one night, you have the freedom to go to the super-market Mega and cook your own meal right in the condo. The Lotus is perfect for a relaxing get-away with it’s quiet atmosphere and great location right in the middle of Playa Del Carmen with easy access to the beach and town. If you’re ready for a vacation like no other… stay in the Lotus.

This 2008 condo is unit 5 in the Lotus building at 26th street between 5th and 1st Avenue, two blocks from Mammitas Beach in Playa del Carmen. This is the most desired and centrally located area of town because of it’s proximity to 5th avenue and the beach. Starbucks, Le Fe, El Diez, La Fragata and many other top restaurants are right next door or within one block. The Lotus is a small, quiet, boutique 10 unit building with security and is professionally managed locally.

The condo is approximately 1,000 square feet of air-conditioned space, with a small balcony. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with showers. The kitchen and bathrooms have stone counter tops and high-end furnishings.

You can retreat to our public, but quiet roof top directly for an unequaled view of Playa Del Carmen and the sea. The shared pool also has a patio table, chair set, loungers and beds.

The master bedroom has a custom made queen size bed and a large closet well equipped with shelves, drawers and hanging space. The second bedroom has four single beds, a large closet and it’s own bathroom. The unique arrangement of the beds includes a day bed and bunk beds, one with a pull-out-trundle. There’s plenty of room and it a lot of fun when my kids bring down cousins or friends.

High end furnishings include cushioned couch and chairs, wood kitchen table, coffee table, entertainment center, and master bed. Also included are a 50 inch Sony LCD HDTV, Blueray/DVD player, wireless internet, satellite television and stereo.

Towels, toys and coolers are available for the beach and are included in the rental. Free wireless internet is also included.

The kitchen has high-end appliances made by GE profile and Bosch. It has everything you need for cooking and preparing drinks or snacks including a stove, microwave, refrigerator, blender, silver wear, glasses cutlery, pans, pots, plates of several sizes and bowls.

Multiple beach clubs are just a short walk away. Mamitas and Kool are a 2 block walk on the beach. These beach clubs have their own pool and full service bar and restaurant. Service is also at your lounge chair on the beach. Rates start at $3 per day for a lounge chair, and $3 per day for a Palapa.

Playa's beaches have white sands and Caribbean blue waters, perfect for snorkeling, boating, parasailing or just relaxing on the beach during another perfect day in Playa del Carmen. My children love to bring a boogie-board down to the water and ride the waves into shore. The waves never get too big, and the water is great for all children and adults.

In town you can book a tour to see one of the many parks and great sites in Mexico, or just rent a car and take a day to escape from the beach scene!

We ask that you do not smoke in the condo but are welcome to on the balcony (with the windows shut please), rooftop or outside downstairs.

About The Owner

Super lucky guy with a great family. We work hard in Michigan and we love to escape to the sun in PDC whenever schedules allow time away from normal life!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Playa del Carmen

My wife and I fell in love with Mexico and PDC over 10 years ago. We come 4-5 times a year to enjoy the sun, sea, food and spend time with the many friends we have made here.

What makes this condo unique

The location is amazing. We're one block from 5th Avenue and one block from the beach. We love our roof top and the neighbors are great too. The Lotus is a very small condo unit with only 10 apartments. The design and decor is beautiful.

Best location

  • 5 of 5

Just steps from the newer section of 5th Ave., this condo is in a perfect location. It is bigger than it looks and the roof top deck and pool are a plus. Kim, the property manager, was very helpful. I'm looking forward to going back and staying in this unit again.

Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 weeks in PDC at The Lotus. The Condo is exactly like the pictures and is well equipped and comfortable. The building is in a great location located a block from the beach and 10 yards from 5th Ave. The rooftop pool is a great relaxing place to go after a day at the beach, day of shopping, or a day of excursions. Rental of the property was extremely easy and the property managers, Kim and Eric, live on site and are extremely kind and it was a pleasure to have met them. I will recommend this property to anyone interested in visiting the Riviera Maya and may have to consider a repeat trip myself to Playa because it is such a beautiful place. Thank You The Lotus for a wondeful trip!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo over spring break and it was just fantastic. The place was clean, roomy, well-appointed and in the absolute perfect location in Playa. It was just as described. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked. It was a block and a half walk to the beach and just a few feet from a really great section of 5th Avenue. The rooftop pool was beautiful, a nice relaxing escape from the beach. Kim & Eric (on-site managers) were awesome, very helpful, friendly and attentive with anything you needed. Highly recommend this condo, can't wait to return!
