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!

Lovely roof terrace breakfast and helpful host

  • 4 of 5

The host helped us negotiate all our itenary, made restaurant suggestions, and made us feel welcomed. The enjoyable roof patio has a pool, cabana and nest-like chairs. The neighbourhood feels local with bars and restaurants. We walked to the touristy areas and felt safe even as women. The apartment met our needs, but nothing fancy. We spent most of our time outside.

Perfect condo for perfect vacations!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfectly located. A distance of walk from the Fifth Av., the beach, many great restaurants and boutiques! It is well equipped and all the furniture and appliances work perfectly. The pool and terrasse on the roof top are amazing. Our host gave us precious information about PDC and the surrounding area to make sure that we have the best vacation possible. Great trip, great condo ! We would go back without a doubt.

Excellent hospitality, comfortable setting

  • 5 of 5

Alessandro was incredibly warm and welcoming. He personally greeted us and gave us a thorough introduction to Playa del Carmen with great suggestions and ideas. La Dolce Vita is a terrific gem in a lovely residential neighborhood with several nearby eateries and ALL that you could want in walking distance.

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.
