Centro Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy one the most luxurious beachfront condos in Playa del Carmen! 3 bedrooms for the price of 2.

This 1500-square foot luxury beachfront condo is perfect for the family that wants to enjoy the tranquil pleasures of Mexico’s Playa del Carmen. Located in the 24-unit Luna Encantada complex, the condo is on the beach, and is a 1/2 block from the fine restaurants and shopping of the world famous 5th Avenue. Its central location and luxurious interior makes it the perfect vacation spot.

The contemporary 3-bedroom condo offers many elegant touches reminiscent of a first class hotel, unparalleled in Playa del Carmen. Features include a fully appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, luxury bathrooms with marble floors and walls, and travertine marble floors throughout the unit.

The 10-foot high ceilings and private balcony enhance the viewing pleasure of the unspoiled Caribbean setting. Other amenities include: washer/dryer, linens, beach towels, 24-hour security, ceiling fans, individually climate controlled air conditioning, water purification system, underground parking, and elevator.

The fully appointed kitchen has everything you need to make a meal, including appliances, tableware, pots, pans, bowls, etc.

There are three spacious bedrooms in the condo that will comfortably accommodate 6 people. The master suite with en suite bathroom and walk-in closet is furnished with a king bed; the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms feature one queen bed each. All of the large windows and sliding doors are covered with black-out curtains to ensure that you can sleep in if you want to. Also, the condo is equipped with hurricane glass on all of the windows and doors, which has an added benefit of keeping out any unwanted noise.

The beach in front of Luna is white powdery sand, and the crystal-clear blue-green ocean can be entered directly in front of the complex. The beach is furnished with lounge chairs for use only by Luna guests, and there are palm trees and umbrellas to relax under if you need a break from the sun.

Guests will find all the convenient comforts at the doorstep. Open air restaurants and boutique shopping on Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) is just a 1/2 block away. Just 4 blocks from the condo is the Cozumel Ferry Pier. Relax on lounge chairs next to the infinity edge pool or use the patio furniture on your private balcony.

Other condo features include high speed wireless internet access; free phone calls to most North American and European countries, and a hotel-quality safe for valuables. Every other day maid service is included. Other services available for an additional fee include van service from Cancun airport, personal chef service, and provisioning services.

Enjoy the alabaster beaches, turquoise waters and unique charms of a once-sleepy fishing village that has become a favorite destination of visitors from Europe, United States and Canada. Watch your day unfold at an unhurried pace. The beautiful Caribbean Ocean is steps from your door. Swim, snorkel or jog along a white sand beach that stretches for miles.

Playa del Carmen, in Mexico’s Riviera Maya in the Yucatan Pensinsula, offers a unique charm untainted from the commercial tourism found in larger destinations. Nestled in the backdrop of the Mayan excavations, this old fishing village offers something for everyone. Adventurers will enjoy archaeological sites, exploring the underground rivers, parasailing, and scuba diving in the famed Palancar Reef. For those who want to take it easy, world-class golf courses, boating and sailing are available. Playa del Carmen is the ultimate vacation experience.

Best Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

I usually never leave reviews but I just had to for this condo. I absolutely loved it! The apartment itself was perfect, spacious, clean and had an amazing beach/pool view! The location was great just a few steps from Quinta Avenida and from the Taxi spot. I loved how you felt secure in this condo with their 24 hour security and if you had any questions/problems you could just go to the front desk and they would assist you. THEY EVEN HAVE ROOM SERVICE!!! Its as if you're staying in a hotel but with a much much bigger space of your own. We have rented a few condos/apartments on our annual trips and so far this has been my favorite! I will definitely come back. Maia the owner was very helpful and informative and the booking process was very easy. I am usually the type that worries a lot about scams but with Maia it was different right away she makes you feel that it is secure. So don't think about it twice BOOK LUNA ENCANTADA F2 FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION! You will definitely not regret it!

Our 3rd time at Luna Encantada!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at Luna Encantada and our second time in this 3 bedroom unit. We love everything about Playa Del Carmen and Luna Encantada. The location right in the beach and only a block off 5th Avenue is perfect. The three bedrooms make it fitting for up to six people. The balcony overlooking the pool is a perfect spot for morning coffee or an evening Happy Hour drink! The kitchen is large and has a good size eating area. However with all the excellent, reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance, we tended not to stay in to eat very often. The main bedroom overlooks the spool and ocean and we always kept the door open to enjoy the cool breeze and listen to the waves. The photos of th apartment are accurate depictions of the unit and the entire complex. Everyone was helpful and ready to assist us with whatever and answer all our questions. Over the last two years we have spent nearly five weeks here and have never had a complaint. Renting through VRBO could not be easier. Maia, the owner, responds quickly and is a pleasure to work with. (We have also rented her two bedroom unit in the same complex with equal satisfaction.) If you are planning a trip to Playa Del Carmen you will not regret staying at Luna Encantada.

Great condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Playa. We loved our vacation, and the condo was just as described, spacious and clean. Master bed is huge, other 2 bedrooms are small but we weren't in them for anything other than napping. We enjoyed the view and breeze from the patio.

The pool was very nice , but was pretty cold. The beach area is small but is very beautiful to look at and there is a wider sandy beach area next door. We did have a lot of seaweed, but I will say, it comes and goes with the tide, so it wasn't much of an issue. There is some shade from the palms and chairs and a beach attendant to get anything you need.

The restaurant next door was our favorite spot and the meals are fresh, delicious and inexpensive. Cucumber mojito and fresh guacamole were amazing.

The location of this condo cannot be beat, and it was a great value for our family.

Wonderful Location and High Class Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. The accommodations were fantastic. The condo was cool, quiet, and nicely furnished. The kitchen and bathrooms were exquisite. It was medicinal to sit on the balcony and listen to the waves. The office manager came and greeted us and was a great resource for us when we had questions about town. The security on staff made us feel safe and secure. They were so kind also. They get a 5 star rating from us and yes, our next visit to Playa will include housing at this place.

Wonderful Experience with my Family at Luna Encantada! Muchas Gracias

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful 10 days at the condo. We really enjoy how everything is close in proximity and walking distance to MEGA and Walmart for groceries. Playa del Carmen have been our favorite for the last 3 summers. We all enjoy the pool, the beach and how we could go back into the condo and cool off at any time. It was really our home away from home. We had wonderful weather, food and lots of cold cervezas. The condo have everything to cook with which we did many times. We rented a car so it was great having our own garage. Visited Xcaret, Tulum, Akumal, Puerto Morelos and Xelha. Staff is great. Gloria kept the room cleaned and she was super friendly. We will be planning to return to Luna Encantada.

Thanks Mike and Maia

Love Playa Del Carmen and love Luna Encantada!

  • 5 of 5

We are just completing our 3rd week in the condo and absolutely love it. After visiting many vacation areas of Mexico, we have decided that Playa Del Carmen is our favorite and Luna Encantada is the ideal pace to stay when we are there. We had previously stayed at Luna Encantada but this is our first time in this particular unit. Everything is exactly as described on the website and the photos accurately depict the unit. The location right on the beach and close to restaurants, shopping and activities could not be better. While there is no shortage of excellent places to eat out, the condo is well equipped for those days you want to prepare something and stay in. Maia was great to work with and went out of her way to answer my questions and ensure our stay was pleasurable. We are retired, but were joined by our young adult children and grandson for a week. They all agreed it's perfect for all ages. I certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation stay!
