5th ave is 1/2block away, beach is 1.5 blocks. Clean, safe, affordable condo. Very helpful hosts! Delicious restaurants, great seafood place right across the street with nightly entertainment from your balcony. Air conditioning if needed, everything you need in a kitchen for light cooking. The condo is beautifully decorated. A back balcony looks over a beautiful garden if you want some quiet. There is some construction next door so if you're someone who likes to sleep in this might bother you. We had no problems with it but we like to get up early and enjoy the day. Grocery store within a 5 minute walk. Hero Car rental just below apartment, very affordable and friendly. If we go back to Playa we will stay again 100% for sure!
Very clean, quiet and centrical. Best ceviche restaurant across the road and beach 5 minute walk. You just go out and you have everything you need at your doorstep, what more do you need?
Daniela and Marco are the perfect hosts, always there to answer your questions and recommend the best places.
Ideal location just off bustling 5th Avenue. The excellent seafood restaurant, El Pirata, is just across the street and there is a steady stream of street musicians and acrobats that perform for its customers in the street just below your balcony. All becomes quiet about 9:00 PM for your sleeping pleasure.
The bachelor unit itself is large with a second balcony facing an inner garden in a contained courtyard. The kitchen is adequate but with the many wonderful and inexpensive restaurants in the immediate area we used it mostly for early morning coffee and snacks. There is a large closet and storage area to keep the living space nicely organized. And the bathroom is large and comfortable.
The owner/hosts, Danielia and Marco, live in the building and will respond quickly to any request. All in all, a great home away home while in Playa Del Carmen.
Marco and Danielle are wonderful hosts, very accommodating. The condo's location is ideal for easy access to both 5th and 10th Avenues, yet is is far enough away from the noise that is typical of 5th Avenue. It is an easy walk to beach clubs. The neighborhood is very safe, I was often out and about late into the evening and never felt uneasy. My only complaint, and this is no fault of the hosts, is that there is a dive shop on the ground floor of the building and they started loading their steel dive tanks into a pickup around 7:30 AM, making it difficult to sleep in.
Daniela is a great host and does everything to make her guest's stay special. The unit is not fancy but neither is the price. We read one negative review - the only negative review - and the person seemed to expect a luxury property at the price of a perfectly fine apartment but without all the fancy stuff. Everything that really matters is here. A nice bath with good hot shower. A king size bed. A small but efficient kitchen. We picked up a cheap BBQ to prepare some great fish and meat meals the way we like them. The local restaurants - especially El Pirata just across the street are reasonable and tasty. Chez Celine and Ah Cacao are terrific for breakfast. Quinta Ave. is just a half block away. Our dog Banjo loved it here and had great play sessions with Daniela's dog Bruno. We will return and likely next season.
