Studio One is a new upscale development in Playa. The building has 24hr security, a lift, covered parking and a beautiful pool with stunning views of the ocean. Our flat is beautifully decorated with Chabby Chic decor, my personal favourite is a terrace with partial sea view ideal for breakfast! The flat has a large bedroom with en suite bathroom and a small studio (where you can place your computer if needed). The dining room comfortably sits 6 people, and the living room has two sofa-beds that can sleep two additional guests. We provide free fast WIFI, audio system, SKY TV and even a hammock in the living room. The flat has two bathrooms. One of the walls in our flat was decorated by a local artist.

About Victor Pina
We are a family of 4, my daughters are 14 and 12 and Leny and I have been married for 20 years. We grew up in Mexico but lived ten years in London, which made us appreciate even more the beauty of Mexican beaches. We have family that has lived in Playa del Carmen for many years, so we would visit Playa often and we immediately fell in love with it. On our return to Mexico from London, we decided to buy this property. There is something for everyone, my daughters now enjoy the trendy shops and restaurants. Leny and I enjoy fine dining and we all like the outdoors and the unique beaches the Riviera Maya has to offer.
Victor Pina purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Victor Pina chose Zazil-ha
We had wanted to buy a property in Playa for a long time, but we wanted the rare combination of being close to the beach, next the 5th av, within a nice upscale -not too large- building. So when we came across Studio One, we knew this one was for us. My daughters sleep in the sofa beds and as the property has two full bathrooms, the space is good for us.
What makes this Apartment unique
1) Location: Our Flat is strategically located in Playas´s newest and nicest: The Italian Village, a block away from the beach and a block away from 5th Av. Its 2 min walk to Playa's newest and best Cannibal beach. 2) Pool with stunning view 3) Free fast WIFI, SKY TV and audio system 4) Covered Parking 5) The terrace with partial sea-view is my weakness

Beautiful Condo and walking/biking distance to everything!
This was a perfect spot for me. Very comfortable and close to everything, but still just far enough away that it’s quiet at night. I loved being able to wash my clothes before going home. The pool was relaxing and had a view of the ocean. There are so many thoughtful details, like beach chairs, towels, water in the fridge, 2 bicycles, and much more! Someone came to clean a couple times which I wasn’t expecting and didn’t necessarily require but it was nice to come back to! The beach right near here isn’t the best but if you travel a bit further south it’s much better and not far at all! There is construction across the street but it was never loud or bothersome for me. There’s also a cute book/dvd share-if you will. It was nice to have as an option. I felt very safe in this area and I was traveling alone but I would mention that the further east you are the better in regards to that! If I ever make it back to Playa I will definitely be checking to see if this gem is available!
Dear Brittany, thanks for your lengthy and lovely review! It helps us a lot!!! You are always welcome back in our condo. Hope we could have you visiting us again soon
This was amazing stay! Owners and their concierge could not have been more helpful or supportive since first booking! Great location; apartment has everything needed and just as the pictures. I will visit and use again!
Dear Pippa, thanks for your awesome review, it is a great help to us. We are very happy to hear that you had a pleasant and amazing stay. We would love to have you visiting again. You were also a great guest. Best wishes, the Pina's
Property as promised. Great location. Two blocks from Coco Beach. A block from 5th Ave.
Location amenities were nice for a rental. Well appointed with Dishes he pots and pans. 5th Avenue has something g for everyone. Food to satisfy every appetite, including several heatlthy options for organic and Gluten Free. The concierge co tact was new and very aggressive in trying to set check in and check out time. I was under the impression he should accommodate my schedule, not the other way around. Then he no showed at the agreed time for check out. I was also of the impression the Martina Beach Club was included with the Condo. I was given One pass for a beach chair everything else was an additional charge. I fully expected to pay for my food and drinks. Towels were extra. Pool area extra. The staff was not shy in trying to extract additional charges. I was harassed continually for my bracelet on my arm. Ex: I went to the bar to get a drink. Showed bracelet. Sat down 3 Feet Away in the shade and the waiter that was standing next to me at the bar while ordering, asked to see my bracelet. Minutes later, I had to show my bracelet to go to the rest room in the same area. When I exited, I stopped to look at the pool area, was immediately approached to see my bracelet. This waiter wanted 500 pesos to be there. Seconds later this was repeated as I used the hose to get sand off my feet. Went back to my chair, where I had been for 2 hours and with I. Minutes 3 different waiters asked for my clearly visible bracelet. Keep in mind, this was slow season. The Beach Club was nearly empty. Felt like a shake down at every turn. Same with Beach Services. Parasailing/Jetski or Fishing. Very expensive. Fishing charter was $250. Crappy tiny boat with 8 customers on board. Not enough room to fish. Complete rip off and scam. I declined when I saw the set up. I would prefer an all inclusive rather than getting harassed and Nicole and dined at every turn. My guess is that option would actually be LESS EXPENSIVE. Not to mention the non stop harassment making it difficult to enjoy the experience and even try to relax. Condo was nice. Experience was not. I will Not go back.
We are so sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience at the Beach Club Martina. We are not affiliated at all with them, they offer us passes which we give to our guests , if requested. I am glad you liked our condo, and the pool, we try very hard to provide the best experience, so we take seriously the comments made regarding the concierge, we will make sure that is sorted. Our most sincere apologies, then again, the Martina experience is completely out o
All you need is here!
A very nice apartment, waking distance from the beach, with all the items you need to have a comfortable vacation! All you need is here!
We had a family vacation and the appartment is very suitable for children and babies.
Best location, best apartment
From the minute we arrived we knew we had picked the right place. We were met by Axel the concierge who took the time to show us around the apartment and even had a goodie pack waiting for us with tickets to the beach club right on the corner of the apartment! The apartment is exactly how it looks in the photos and we loved our BBQs on the terrace and lazy pool days. That apartment is right on the corner of the start of 5th Avenue so you have all the access with none of the noise! Great location, great apartment, and Victor & Leny were super helpful all the way through the booking process and for every question we had. We will definitely book here when we come back next year....and every year after that!!
Great Place to Stay Footsteps from 5th Ave
Stayed here in July for a few days with my wife and 2 young kids. It was a great base for exploring Playa and the surrounding area. The Condo was very spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. There is a small convenience store located at the foot of the building that is well stocked and a large Grocery store nearby. Victor was great at communicating with us and was very accommodating with any request we made. I would definitely stay here again!
Our Flat is strategically located in Playas´s newest and nicest: The Italian Village, a block away from the beach and a block away from 5th Av. Its 2 min walk to Playa´s newest and best Cannibal beach club. The neighbourhood is upscale and calm, with the benefit of being at a close walk to all restaurants and bars whilst retaining its privacy. There is a gym nearby, plenty of coffee shops and restaurants. We have a roofed parking space within the building in case you rented a car. Cancun is 45min north, and Tulum 45min South. There are plenty of attractions like X-Caret, Xel-Ha, Rio Sagrado and Cenotes that are 25min driving distance.
