Great Vacation Had by All
We were a group of 4, two couples over 60. The condo was exactly like it's pictures. The bedrooms each a king size bed and its own air conditioner, when the bedroom doors were closed you could not hear the noise in the other part of the condo. We used the kitchen for breakfast and lunch. The kitchen supplies were good. They had added a water purifier so there was no reason to buy water for cooking or drinking. The condo is two blocks back from the beach easy walking, two beach clubs to the right and one to the left. 5th Avenue is two blocks up the street again a very easy walk. There was a list of restaurants to tryin the living room. We also used the rooftop pool in the evenings to watch the sunset and have drinks. The owners and the agent were very easy to talk to and answered questions prior to us arriving. There were no issues with the rental. After departing for home I had received a notice from VRBO while on the Airplane that my security deposit had been refunded. We would stay here again in a heart beat.
10 Day 2nd Honeymoon
Everything was perfect. Pizza place across the street was great. Nearby to everything. The beach was gorgeous and several Beach Clubs were just a block away. Rooftop pool was our favorite since it was only an elevator ride away. Took the ferry to Cozumel for the day and ate at a small restaurant called Jeannie's. It was on the water and had a nice view. Looking forward to staying at the condo again.
Peaceful and Great Location
Property is a block from the beach and two blocks to 5th Avenue so you are close to where everything is happening. The condo complex is very quiet and peaceful with a great rooftop pool looking out at the ocean. Condo itself is modern and comfortable and has everything you need. Twenty-four hour security and police station right next to property so you can feel safe and secure. We will be back for sure.
I stayed for 8 nights with my boyfriend and another couple and we had the best time. Playa is a great beach town that didn't disappoint us one bit. The rooftop pool was the start of each of our days until we headed down to the beach (only two blocks away). The condo was very clean/nice and exceeded all of our expectations. Would highly recommend staying here, as we would 100% rent this place again.
Great vacation spot
We had a great time during our week-long stay in this condo! We enjoyed the spaciousness of the rooms and the master bath, and the apartment is clean and in perfect condition. It is stocked with beach towels and chairs, making it extra user-friendly. The owners are communicative and offer ultra-easy check-out. Also we got our refund of security deposit super fast! We would definitely stay here again or happily rent another property from these same owners.
While it’s true that you can walk to the beach just two blocks from the condo, that little spot was not a great beach. We preferred Mamita’s Beach Club, which is off Calle 38, 6 short blocks from the condo. There’s a free beach area right next to Mamita’s, if you prefer free, or renting chairs + umbrella is pretty cheap, and then you can also get food/drink service right there on the beach.
We loved being so close to Fifth Avenue (“Quinta Avenida”), and fell in love with the restaurant El Guero, especially for ceviche. Did you know that ceviche is widely available in PDC? We were so happy to learn this and had ceviche every day, what a luxury. We even got ceviche on the beach from Mamita’s and it was excellent! We also really enjoyed “Ah Cacao” for coffee, chocolate, and home-made ice cream.
The condo is one floor above the street, so there is a little street noise at night, but probably most people would not notice this (I happen to be ultra-noise-sensitive, unfortunately). The owners have kindly provided sound machines, one for each bedroom, to help mask this.
We bought tours from Mannie, a tour vendor with a booth in front of the hat shop right as you get to Fifth Avenue from the condo. His prices turned out to be better than the person who comes by the condo to offer tours, but we only found this out since we had already bought from Mannie when the in-house tour vendor came by.
[If you pre-book a return shuttle to the airport, do NOT give the name of the building as your location! Give only the address. This problem led to our shuttle driver to the airport ultimately being a no-show! Don’t let this happen to you. We won’t book a shuttle in advance next time -there’s really no savings, a taxi came by while we waited and offered to take us to the airport for $30, which was the “discounted” fare the shuttle company gave. Also, calling the shuttle to arrange the return trip was impossible for us. Just take a taxi, that's what we'll do next time.]
Large, clean ,safe, modern, and 2 King beds!
Wow! Amazing stay in Playa. Just two short blocks to the ocean. Also just two quick blocks to 5th avenue. We felt safe every evening coming back from dinner and drinks. Communication was awesome before the trip. Everything was clean and stocked for us when we arrived. The bathrooms are huge, beds are super comfortable, and air conditioners keep it a comfortable temperature. More than enough room for all 4 of us. The rooftop pool was gorgeous and the sofas and chairs up there were cozy and relaxing.
