|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Condo Ali is located on La Quinta Avenida between calle 28 and 30 in Playa del Carmen. This area is known locally as the Italian District. Below your two large terraces are La Quinta restaurants, Starbucks, entertainment and shopping. On the other side of your apartment is the famous Mamitas Beach - only 3 blocks and a very short walk. You'll love this location and the very spacious 3-level living areas…and the rooftop jacuzzi views to the Caribbean !
The photos reveal this luxurious condominium residence, so you will want to know that there's a large screen HD tv, wifi from cable, a great kitchen for preparing your own specialties, 3 full bathrooms including the one on the living room level. Your visitors can sleepover on the sofa-bed and not disturb the guests in the two bedroom suites.
The kitchen island is a place to cook and entertain plus dining for 5 - the table on the terrace accommodates another 4.
The primary terrace is huge with room for entertaining a group of friends or large family. And it was just resurfaced...looks great. Another terrace is shared by both bedroom suites.
There are some fun noises of music, laughter, strollers and merriment below on La Quinta until 11pm or midnight when the action moves to the club areas far far away.
I am the property manager who will do almost anything to help your visit to Condo Ali and Playa succeed and exceed your expectations. The owner of Condo Ali is a close friend and amazing person, oh, and creative personality, too.
Gary purchased this condo in 2007
This property is for the walker, the people-watcher, the restaurant-er, the fun lover, the romantic and the joyful traveler.
Straight from the airport (no rental car), drop your bags, and to the beach in under an hour.
Gary was great to deal with before our arrival, very accommodating. We arranged transportation from the airport with USA Transfers. They were easy to find and our driver, Ivan, was great. He brought us right to the condo where we met Dawn. Dawn showed us around the condo and answered all of our many questions cheerfully. She was available for questions throughout our stay which was really helpful as we were getting to know the area. The condo is in a perfect location. We could walk anywhere...restaurants, beach, collectivos, grocery store. And we loved being in the middle of all of the action. People-watching from the terrace was fun day and night. There is lots of room to spread out which is nice when you have multiple people staying there. It was a fabulous vacation! We would highly recommend this condo and Playa del Carmen. Hated to leave and can't wait to go back. Thanks Gary & Dawn!
We recently stayed at Condo Ali and absolutely loved it! It is located right on 5th Ave which we thought was great. The condo itself was beautiful, nice big bedrooms, great kitchen for cooking, and a beautiful terrace overlooking 5th Ave. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from our private rooftop! The best part was being right in the action. This condo is so close to the beach, just a short walk to paradise. Having the freedom to roam 5th to explore all that it has to offer was a major plus. There are restaurants right below the condo but we never had an issue with noise.
The condo also comes with a parking stall if you do decide to rent a car. My only complaint is that the tenant in 28 A takes up part of that stall which makes it extremely hard to squeeze in there. We had to unload the car on the street before pulling in as it's so tight you can't open the door!! I suggest leaving a friendly note if you run into this problem.
Aside from that I definitely recommend this condo. We will be renting here again for sure.
Condo Ali was beautiful! The condo was very clean and it has 3 different patios to enjoy. You can see all the action of 5th Avenue from all 3, but on the rooftop, you can also see right to the ocean - it was a beautiful view! The condo is also in a great location! Its on the Northern side of 5th Avenue, so while there were fun bars all around us, it was never noisy. The condo is right above Pasta Amore and Starbucks, both of which we enjoyed! Also, it was just a quick walk to Mamitas Beach! I highly recommend this condo!
This is a terrific place to stay - great location in the heart of town but two blocks from the beach, tons of space, beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, and well-equipped with everything you would put in your own vacation home. I recommend it highly.
We had prepaid for a shuttle from the airport, and it got us to the condo with no issues at all. We litterally stepped out of the cab on 5th street and went right up the stairs as described by the property. The unit was gorgeous and the AC worked great! So convenient next to the major shops and the big bonus was being just a 2 min walk from he best beach in Playa Del Carment! We tried other section for the beach, but it doesn't get any better than COOL or Mamamitas. Monica was very helpful with any questions we had, and the housekeeper arrived on Wed as mentioned, and changed out all the sheets, etc. Saturday night is a little noisey due to the people at bars below, but it calmed down by midnight. All the other nights were fine.
Would very much recommend to anyone going to Playa Del Carmen.
We stayed here for a week in April 2011. The condo is in a fantastic location with plenty of bars and restaurants within a few meters walk!! The lovely beach is only a 5 minute walk from the condo. The balcony/terrace on the first floor is a good size and is ideal for people watching with a nice cool drink after a lazy day in the sun! There is a large table with 5 chairs on the terrace as well as two sunloungers.
The condo itself is brilliant! It is set out over three floors and air conditioned throughout. There were only two of us staying in the condo, so we had more than enough space!! The condo can accomodate 4 people in comfort (and there is a sofabed in the living room as well). Both bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms (3 of them!) were finished to a high standard. There is a shared balcony for both bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The condo had everything that you would need for a perfect holiday - an excellent range of cooking utensils, microwave, washing machine and dryer, satellite tv with spanish, german and english speaking language channels ( my friend made great use of this to watch the royal wedding!!!), beach accesories, deckchairs, coolers etc, books and even a partly stocked drinks cabinet!!. The water cooler in the kitchen was a nice idea!
The roof terrace was lovely - the sea breezes were refreshing and and the jacuzzi was a fantastic way to cool off in the warm weather. It would be nice if there were sunloungers on the roof terrace as it was more pleasant there during the day (the first floor balcony is a real sun trap and was way to hot for us!!). We moved the sun loungers from the first floor balcony up to the roof terrace!!!
I would definetly recommend this condo, we really enjoyed our stay. Monica was very helpful with everything while we were staying there.
There would only be a couple of things that could be improved slightly - firstly, sunloungers, table and seating area on the roof terrace (there are only two sunloungers for a condo that accomodates 4-6 people) and secondly, the table and chairs on the second floor balcony were rusty and couldn't be used. Be aware, there is no conventional oven in the condo (but who needs an oven when you are on holiday!!!) However, these were very minor points as we truly did have a fantastic stay at condo Ali! We would certainly stay here again if we went back to Playa del Carmen!
Walk to almost everything Playa del Carmen 'centro' has to offer, then catch the Playa Express or a tour for those extra activities up and down the Caribbean coastline. Ask Gary to be your guide to the best of the best to discover in this corner of paradise.
