I was staying in Playa Del Carmen for the month of July 2011 and arrived to the city with no set place to stay. I found Vimex (the managing company) through an advertisement and they showed me the property at PK07 the same day.
First, a word about the property-
PK07 is part of a larger complex that is located a stone's throw from 10th Avenue and only another block from 5th. It's far enough away from the crowds to avoid the madness and noise, but is literally a 2 minute walk to 5th avenue. Just across the street is a church which rings the bells for mass each day. There were also a few 20-30 person parades that passed by the complex during my stay. All very charming and the location can't be beat.
The apartment itself is well furnished with everything you may need for your stay. All of the furnishings appear to be new, the shower has great water pressure and the water is hot. The loft upstairs has a bed which is great for visitors or extra members of the family. The wifi in this property is incredibly fast for Mexico (3 megs). There are two air conditioners, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. Both of them broke while I was there, but the upside is that both were replaced in short order so there are now two brand new units in the property.
Now a word about Vimex, who manages the property -
In a word, these people are great. Their office is only a block away from PK07, so any issues are seen to quickly and efficiently. When the air conditioners broke in the property, Vimex had someone over the same day to try and fix it. When it was determined that replacements were required, they moved me to another property in the complex while the work was being done. It only took a day or two for the replacement air conditioners to be installed, but I was most impressed with their insistence that I was comfortable during those two days. Speaking from experience, this is not always the case with property managers. As a final endorsement, let me say that if I had a property in the area to rent, I would want Vimex to be the one managing it. They're that good.
Really enjoyed my time there and am looking forward to returning again!
