Perfect spot in Playa!

  • 5 of 5

Can't even believe how much we lucked out finding this place for our first Playa del Carmen experience! We are not the type of people to go for the big resorts. Why go to a foreign country only to spent time around other travelers? Everything about our stay was perfect! The condo is clean and modern, with a partial ocean view from the living room and balcony. The location is as good as it gets- right between a fantastic section of beach and La Quinta. Even though it is so close to the action, the street is quiet and very safe, and there is very little traffic. Some great restaurants nearby. Do not miss La Cueva del Chango! Seriously, this place is even better than the pictures suggest. The rooftop infinity pool is to die for! We spent hours and hours up there, sometimes having the whole area to ourselves. We also met some great folks up there. There is a swim-up DIY bar up there, which is perfect. You dont have to rely on overpriced drinks like you would find at swim-up bar at a big resort. From up there, your view of the ocean is amazing! Only one property between Pueblito Escondido and the beach, and it is all thatched roof cabanas, so it feels very tropical and romantic. Jose was very hospitable, and was there on time to check us in and get us acquainted. We loved it so much we are already planning to return next year, though we usually make it a rule never to visit the same place twice. Seriously, this is the good life!

Perfect condo, close to all in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week, manager Jose is very helpful. Condo is well appointed with furniture, kitchen needs, bath; towels and hair dryer. Also good AC and dehumidifier add to comfort. Second floor Condo has nice view of family pool and ocean. Additional roof top infinity pool is amazing. Easy access to beach, taxis, walk to 5th Avenue for shopping, dining, nightlife. Building has 24 hour concierge and elevator. Interior bedroom quiet when nearby beach resorts have entertainment. Excellent experience for us!

I can’t get enough about this place, this is my 3rd time I stay in this Great apartment. It has “The perfect location”, It’s 10 steps from the sand, we love 38th street, the little cafés and restaurants are walking distance. (I recommend “La Cueva del Chango” for breakfast and “La Piola” for dinner).

I noticed the owner just refurbished everything, its a BRAND NEW Apartment again, Thanks : )

A paradisiac view from the roof top pool, you can even see the ocean from inside the apartment. Lots of space, very clean, big bed, big bath, big living room, great kitchen, you don’t need to bring anything, everything is right there in the apartment.

I will be back as soon as I can!!!

We had a wonderful stay here - the front desk management was very courteous and helpful. The condo was very clean - all necessities provided. Jose met us at the unit and answered any and all questions with regards to the air conditioning, tv remotes, etc. We loved being able to see the ocean - and also loved the pool upstairs. The photos tell it exactly as it it!! It is a short walk to 5th Avenue with all the shops and restaurants. We will be back! Thank you Fernando!

February at Pueblito Escondido

  • 4 of 5

We were in Playa del Carmen for the whole month of February. Our stay at the condo was really appreciated. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. This is nothing to say about the location - Fantastic!!!

However, if you plan on cooking a lot, the kitchen could benefit from a couple more pots and pans. Otherwise, the choice of restaurants is beyond one's needs.

Jose and the people at the front desk were very nice and of great help. Thank you so much.

This is a great condo, awesome location and pools like described in the site! Fernando asked for this review specially to inform if we noticed something bad with the condo….. We did not! We didn’t experienced any of the issues expressed in the previous bad review. We checked-in on the same day and the unit was in perfect shape. We want to add the condo is very private and we had time to relax because other places we visited were really crowded. We will come back for sure! Fernando and the management were superb.
