Gonzalo Guerrero Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Noemi Romo Cuellar - Latido de Mexico purchased this condo in 2002

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.

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!

Exotic luxury at the right price

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teenage and I had the time of our lives in Playa Del Carmen at this third floor unit. We have stayed at the El Nido property two times and loved all the space. The view from the Palapa is breath taking. We used the kitchenette everyday and enjoyed eating on the terrace. The beautiful pool, was a nice change after a day at the beach. We were in walking distance to shops, grocery stores, restaurants and entertainment. This was an affordable vacation for a family of four. We recommend snorkeling at AKUMAL with the sea turtles.

Luxury in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect week at Blue Palms in the El Nido unit during the Day of the Dead festivities. We had a third floor suite with amazing views from the palapa and the balcony overlooking the Caribbean. The sunrise in s were absolutely spectacular. Lounging in the hammocks was heavenly. The service was outstanding. Our room was cleaned daily and having fresh sheets each night was total luxury, especially since we spend each day working beach side planning a future spiritual retreat. The bed was comfortable and just the right firmness for my taste. The complimentary breakfast by the beach was a wonderful way to start each day. Being located in the heart of the Playa beach district also made so many wonderful experiences possible. Great shopping, restaurants and entertainment were literally just outside our doorway. The swimming pool fit perfectly in the tropical landscaping. There was always a security guard on duty leaving a feeling of safety and security, even though Playa impressed me as a safe and comfortable town to be in. The sight and experiences in the area are fantastic. I can't wait to do this again. Thank you Blue Palms for an absolutely unforgettable experience. I didn't visit the fitness center, so I cannot offer my opinion about it.

A hidden gem in the heart of Playa

  • 5 of 5

After just arriving home from my second vacation to El Nido, it is safe to say that my stay there was nothing short of incredible. From the helpful, attentive front desk service to the private rooftop palapa with views of the swirling teal Caribbean, it's truly paradise. I already miss eating breakfast in the hammocks (which we made in the full kitchen - great way to save on eating out!) while planning our days adventure. One of the most unique aspects of El Nido is that while close to the bustling 5th avenue and night life scene, it feels very removed from the chaos. We heard no noise in the evenings and it truly felt like we were miles from the tourist hotspot just down the road! With that being said, it's very conveniently located. Anything you need/want is within walking distance, including the beach - only a few steps!! All in all, our stay was perfect. It felt very safe, clean, and private and we thoroughly enjoyed having a lovely nest to come home too after a long day in the sun!
