About Oscar Subirats

My father (Jaime) purchased this condo thinking he and my mother would retire there. My father passed away, and Instead me and my wife lived in it for 9 years. We now live in Florida, but maintain the condo with high quality standards so that others can enjoy this beautiful place that my father had the vision to purchase back in 1998 with an envious location.

Why Oscar Subirats chose Playa del Carmen

The property is like being in Paradise, it is located in the best place and the maintenance is excellent. You will enjoy the large and usually quiet pool. Also, in comparison to many other rental properties, we try to make the place feel like a second home and not a "rental". Finally, being in front of the Hotel Reef, it is like having the best of both worlds. You can have the "hotel" feel, amenities, and pool by simply walking across the street to the Hotel Reef, which provides free access to renters, or you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of your own place at the condo. You can even decide to have an "all inclusive" day, which can be purchased for an additional fee, directly from the Hotel Reef across the street, or simply enjoy a quiet home cooked meal back "home" at the condo. You have a lot of flexibility with our difficult to beat location.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Beach, Golf, Shopping, Restaurants. No car is needed, there are plenty of taxis and tour buses. Reasonable price for a high end rental with upgraded amenities and appliances.

El Capitan Visits the Condo

  • 5 of 5

Well, El Capitan and his crew decided on a condo this time - and Oscarino was good enough to consider us for his unit. Thank You Thank You Thank You Oscar. The unit was amazing - very comfortable - like being at home. The Capitan was in the front bedroom - and everything was great. Lots of closet and dresser space - and a nice big room. The location of this condo is amazing - right across the street from the Reef which we used almost daily for the beach. The Reef people treated us fantastic - and we got to know them since we stayed 2 weeks. We met other renters at the condo - and other owners as well. The pool turned out to be a nice late afternoon meeting place for renters that were out for the day and came back to have a brewski and relax. The unit has everything you need - start your coffee early because the coffee maker runs on Mexican time. A maid came in three times a week - and for water we just left the jugs out with the appropriate payment. There is a security guard there all night - awesome. If you are a light sleeper you may want to take the master bedroom - the one at the front is basically on the street and does get a little traffic noise. All in all a great vacation at a great location - it doesn't get much better. One thing would be nice - a working BBQ - that's about all that is missing. Once again, thank you Oscar - we'll be speaking with you again soon.

Great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

First of all Oscar has a great home in Playacar. It is clean and comfortable. We stayed April 1st to 15th 2016 and was everything as advertised. The easy access to the Reef Playacar across the street was awesome (must be there by 9am to ensure entry ). They only allow 20 resident cards a day and 4 people to a card. Lots of grocery stores close by and restaurants for supper if you don't want to cook. The cleaning lady was there 5 times in two weeks and does a fantastic job. All in all a great spot and definitely will return. Thanks Oscar will be in touch. Much appreciated Kevin Mancuso and Breda Prah.

Wonderful quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed March 22nd to the 29th 2016. The property was just as described, very well kept and clean. We had everything we needed to prepare food. Sam's Club is just minutes away by cab. The condo is close enough to walk to Playa. The public beach access is just a few minutes walk from the condo, and it was less crowded then the beach and the Reef Club, just bring towels or chairs as there are not chairs to sit on at the public beach. The pool was wonderful and well kept. There were never more then four or five other people at the pool at one time so it was very private. The grounds around the condo are also very well kept and clean. The housekeeper was great and did a wonderful job. We had one issue with one of the shower handles not working, but the owner had someone there within an hour and had it fixed.

We went to the Reef Club to get beach access for the day and had no problem, but soon found out that if we wanted to leave for any reason we had to "check out" and turn in our bracelets. We were not able to come and go during the day once we had our bracelets. If we wanted to come back it would depend on how many residents were checked in as they only allow 20 resident cards per day. The Reef Club was nice and the beach was comfortable with plenty of seating.

I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing at home feel who wants to escape the hotel scene.

Owner's Response: Tyler, Thank you for your review and I am so glad that you enjoyed our home. I am sorry that you had that situation with the Reef Club. Unfortunately, that week was the week of Easter, which is perhaps the busiest vacation week in Mexico with many locals on vacation. It is probably as busy as Christmas or New Years. I have heard that the Reef Club limits access on weeks that are extremely in high demand such as Easter, Christmas, and New Years, and I have not had reports from other guests having this issue. Again, out of our control, abut hopefully this policy was only in place for that week. Anyway, hope to have you back, hopefully in a less busy week!

Great condo! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at the condo for 7 days in March. The condo was perfect for the four of us. It was spacious and had everything that we needed. Elia came in twice during our stay to clean and maintain the property - she was awesome! The condo pool was great and the overall property was well-maintained. We used the Reef club pass only once, but also spent time on the beach through a public access point nearby. It was only a 15 minute walk to downtown. Overall, a great stay!

Condo is in a perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

I'm not a five star rater but this place is close. I wish I could do 4.5 stars. I just believe that nothing is perfect and everyone has different expectations. Anyway...

My husband, two kids (7&9) and I had a super two week vacation here February 28-March 13, 2016. The condo is well stocked and the two king size beds are very comfy! We met other of our family & friends on this trip who also stayed at different condos at Chac Ha. The group of us with all the kids certainly took advantage of the pool! The owners that were in residence during our stay were very welcoming and helpful. Oscars place is on the second floor so there wasn't too many stairs; all his appliances are new and if we had questions on anything, he promptly replied. The housekeeper Elia, even cooked us some Mexican food for supper one day! We rented a car during our stay, which we would do again but you certainly don't have to because the condo is so close to everything. A taxi was always around 90 pesos for the down town area. Access to The Reef resort was a great benefit, just make sure you are there before 9am. If you 'miss' it you can buy an all day inclusive pass or get to the beach on a path a couple blocks away.

We loved the Playa Del Carmen area; there is something for everyone and we are definitely coming back to Chac Ha!

Great location, very clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in playacar Feb 15-21 of 2016. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The condos location is perfect. It is literally across the street from the beach ( access through the Reef hotel). It is within walking distance to 5th avenue for shopping and restaurants. Plenty of cabs are available if you don't feel like walking. There are grocery stores close to stock up on supplies for your stay.

The condo was cleaned during our stay. It is very clean, safe and we definitely would return.
