Swing in the Hammocks with Views of the Ocean & Steps from the Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedroom / 2 bath unit, 50 steps from the beach, perfect for 2-4 people

El Nido as we affectionately call it, or The Nest, is your home away from home. Enjoy the ocean views of the Caribbean and be on the beach in 100 steps. Spread your wings and fly to folkloric art shops, high fashion or eco-tourism, and cultural theme parks :) Our penthouse condo serves as the hub of your tropical vacation. We are centrally located within walking distance to world class resturants, nightlife, shopping and people watching on La Quinta Avenue one block away. For those more adventurous, there are Eco-Reserves and Archaeological sites to explore in the region.

What most people love is that we have privacy and a lot of space, roughly 700 sqft interior and 700 sqft exterior. There are 2-bedrooms & 2-baths. It is perfect for couples that like their own space, or enough room to host friends and family. El Nido has several outdoor areas good for morning yoga or sun worshiping, either on the lower balcony or rooftop terrace. Up on the rooftop palapa you'll find the hammocks, which are everyone's favorites.

The interior is well appointed with Tommy Bahama furniture. There is a couch for relaxing or for reading a good book. The door between the bedrooms is extra thick for sound proofing and privacy. There is also a kitchenette and a refrigerator for cooking meals or snacks. Both rooms have a microwave and coffee set. There is a table to gather for a meal, or for playing cards.

Outside you have a private balcony with a table and seating for 4. Further up on the rooftop you have a another private terrace with a second table and seating for 4 more. The rooftop terrace is great for sunbathing on the 4 lounge chairs.

For a truly relaxing experience the rooftop palapa provides shade from the sun. The hammocks swing and lull you to sleep in the cool ocean breeze.

About Noemi Romo Cuellar - Latido de Mexico

California boy and Midwest gal. We are everyday folks that impulsively purchased a piece of paradise and now we share it with you.

Why Noemi Romo Cuellar - Latido de Mexico chose Playa del Carmen

We named our place El Nido, which is Spanish for The Nest. We truly hope you feel that way too. We want it to feel comfortable and to feel like the perfect place you can call your home away from home. We hope you feel the warmth and love, and honor the space by loving it and adding warmth.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I have no complaints about this condo. Great location. The beach was less than a block away. It was easy to locate and get around. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days with our family of four. The condo was just as it was advertised. The furnishings for the two bedroom were perfect. The location is right by the beach. It is a great location within Playa. I highly recommend this. I have been to Playa before and stayed at hotels. This was even better. The kitchen was more than enough for what we needed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and shower. Great water pressure and lots of hot water. We spent a lot of time on the upper patio deck where we would have our breakfast and also watch the sunset. The condo was quiet and secure. It is right next to our favorite dive shop (Phantom Divers). Right at the beach by the condo we made arrangements for snorkeling, fishing, and parasailing. We even rented scooters one day to explore the local cenotes and other beaches. We rented a car to tour the Mayan ruins and toured the jungle to see monkeys, etc. The host of the condo was great to work with. We did not have a single issue with the condo during our stay. Plan to do this again.

El Nido surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My family (including 2 teenaged girls) just returned from a week's stay at El Nido- girls loved the palapa to hang out on the hammocks and enjoy the white stringed lights at night, while my husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine. The views are nice but what is even better is the ocean breeze.

The condo layout is great- two separate rooms with refrigerator and full baths. Upon arrival, the condo was clean and cool, and Hans, the manager, came by to make sure we were settled in and had everything we needed. Hans and his team were not only helpful on site but prior to arrival they were quick to respond to our email inquiries.

The condo is conveniently located to quinta avenida, and we highly recommend La Familigia Italian restaurant if you get tired of Mexican, and Aldo's Ice Cream was our dessert of choice every night after dinner.

El Nido is a great starting point for day trips further south to Akumal Bay (swimming with sea turtles) the Mayan Ruins of Tulum and Coba, and of course all the areas cenotes.

I highly recommend this hidden treasure!

privacy, beautiful views at sunset in the rooftop Palapa

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and another couple stayed at this condo. We love how much space and privacy there is to spread out. There is a terrace on one level and a Palapa on another level. This is a low density complex with only maybe 20 units so we don't feel like we are taking a vacation with 100's of other people. We don't like to rent a car so staying close enough to walk to shops and restaurant fits perfect for us. (Babe's Noodles one of our favorite restaurants in Playa. The property manager was very help recommending restaurants and giving us a discount card. You get a lot for you money here.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and I loved Playa del Carmen and have returned several times. We especially loved staying in El Nido. We have stayed at all-inclusives and prefer to be closer to restaurants, shops, and night life. My favorite day is hanging out in the hammocks, watching the Caribbean change colors, and reading a great book. Privacy, space, beauty, and economical!
