About Alessandro Amenta

I´m Alessandro, 38 years old, i live in Playa since the 2004. Feel free to contact me for any inquiry!

Alessandro Amenta purchased this studio in 2008

Why Alessandro Amenta chose Playa del Carmen

I immediately fell in love of this place and in 2005 i´ve decided to start a new life here. I´ve finished building the Condo La Dolce Vita in August 2008.

What makes this studio unique

The roof top garden is amazing and it´s the real plus of the building. It´s the perfect place to spend a relaxing time in the swimming pool and in the lounge area, enjoying a great barbecue or have a romantic breakfast under a typical Caribbean "palapa".

Breakfast is available (every day except on Saturday and Sunday) on the rooftop from 8am to 9.30am. This includes coffee, milk, tea, slices of bread, jam, butter, cereals, cookies and fruit.

A best kept secret!

  • 5 of 5

First off, thank you to Alessandro and his staff for a great experience!

If you are ever thinking of running a vacation rental service...this is the fellow to follow. he has it down pat!

The accommodations were Clean, Safe, Reasonable and kept in very good condition. The roof top terrace for the continental breakfast and just a late day chill was perfect! The pictures from al the visitors tell the story. It is very well situated for exploring all that the Riviera Maya has to offer. Close to everything, yet far enough away to be quiet!

Do yourself a favour and experience Playa in a better way! Cheers!

Great condo in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this 1 bedroom condo for 1 week. The condo has a living room area, bedroom, small bathroom, and kitchen. Just the right size for 2 people. The living room did not get much use since there is no television in that room. The only TV is in the bedroom. We would have preferred a TV in the living room. The kitchen had the essentials, but we found a few things lacking... only 2 wine glasses, and 1 was cracked. We felt the need for some plastic cups to take a drink up to the rooftop deck.

Alessandro was a superb host. Very accommodating, and helpful! He was very quick with his responses to our questions, both prior to & after our arrival.

We often had the small rooftop deck to ourselves, which is a good thing since it is pretty small. Only 2 lounge chairs, and a few other rocking chairs. We found it gave a nice vantage view of the area, which is very quiet.

We found the 12 to 15 minute walk to the beach a little longer than we would like on a return trip to Playa. We knew this when we booked the condo, but would like to be a little closer next time.

The small rooftop pool was nice (we are pool people), but at only about 3 feet deep, don't be expecting to do more than just a quick cool off.

"Papa Charly" restaurant and the gelato places right down stairs were very practical!

The condo served our needs, and was what we expected. It is nice to have the owner on site.

We've rented on VRBO before, and the owner has always been a distance away.

We enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Alessandro!

Great value

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed two weeks at this property and were very happy with it. The location is far enough from the busy 5th ave to be quiet but still any easy walk away. Bed was very comfortable. Alessandro and his staff are very focused on his guests being comfortable and it shows. The only places for improvement would be the units hot water tank is a little small and the wifi is a little spotty, but this unit is great value for the price.

There are tons of restaurants within a one minute walk and because it's a couple of blocks from 5th avenue, the prices are very cheap... great food. Large grocery/department store is also very close.

Beautiful and clean apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Playa Del Carmen. The apartment was very clean, with a very comfortable king size bed, well equipped and in the perfect neighborhood for us, just few min walking from the beach and 5th avenida but far enough from the tourists noise...we liked all the many local restaurants close by the building and specially the two just downstairs, the Cafe Orange, Papa Charly and el Fogon!!

The Internet connection was great and it was very important for me because I needed to work remotely sometime...

We also loved the rooftop, the perfect place to relax when we were off from tours and beach.

I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends!

A Little disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Clean , breakfast very ordinary and basic could have used fresh croissants. First day we arrived Alessandro was going over the rules . In the bedroom I had pointed out a large with some smaller stains on the comforter on bed , twice he said it's just wet from Housekeeper cleaning it . My friend touched it and said it wasn't wet . Alessandro also touched it and said no it's just wet , it was an awkward moment

Never really seen the guy again until last day when he was suppose to give security deposit back . Alessandro brought another person in with him with a check list where they laid out all the towels and looked them over to make sure no stains on them , then they counted the silverware and dishes , they went in bathroom and checked the toiletries as well . It was a very uncomfortable situation . He then returned our deposit money

My friend and I left in cab arranged by Alessandro and halfway back to airport the driver hands my friend the phone saying Alessandro is on phone where he accuses us of leaving those supposed water spots on the bed . My friend argued with him saying those were the spots you tried saying we're water

Not only did we not leave the stains , we were very quiet . Kept our condo very clean and followed the rules (such as turning air conditioner off when not in room etc)

My friend and I are in our 50's I run a B&B in NOTL Canada and she is a multi million dollar property manager in both Mexico and Panama. Therefore we understand the business and would never treat guests in this manner, improvements need to be made

I would not stay there again nor do I recommend it

Owner's Response: I apologize if you felt offended by my question and by the check out process. It was only a question not an accusation. I have 8 apts and many guests and i totally forgot about the spots on the quilt we saw together at the check in. I was convinced it was wet as it appeared (then i discovered it was an oil stain). It happened before the maid tried to remove some stains at the last minute and at the check in process they were still drying.My mistake was that i forgot to ask you about that during your stay…It´s very weird you wrote in the review you never saw me again after the check in. We met almost everyday and once we were talking for almost 1/2 hour about the whole year you lived in Playa del Carmen, that you too have an apartment for rent here in Playa and that you liked the way how i manage my building. It´s weird also the way how you arrived and left: at your arrival the driver made me a call to advise you were arrived and i immediately went down to open the door and greeting you but you did not even say hello.You just said you were waiting for 15min and you and your friend were very rudes.I then saw the cameras to discover you waited only3 min since you arrived with the transportation until i opened the door! Also very unusual (&unrespectful) that at your arrival you had not the money for the balance and the deposit ready and i had to wait 2days, write you 2 times and finally knock on your door to have that money and i had to accept half of the security deposit we agreed because you said: this is all the money i have! Finally the check out day was even more weird: you asked the pick up at 9:30am but you came back home at 10am and you were not ready before 10:40am (the driver had to wait more than one hour, unbelievable!!).At 10:15am you knocked at my door to ask for the deposit. I came with the handyguy tomake the checkout but we could´t even check the bedroom because you were there inside still packing…i only noted thetowels werestained w makeup and sunscreen.I preferred do not mention it (to avoid an embarrassingsituation)and after5minutes i gave you back the security deposit, wished you a nice trip and left. After you left the cleaning lady called me to tell me about the oil stains.I called t driver to talkwithyou just forasking (not blaming!!) about those stains andyoustarted to overreact to my question, screaming and offending. I´m so happy that guests like you are only the exception because if this was regular my job would be very unpleasant!
