A penthouse view.

  • 4 of 5

What a amazing location this apartment has. Only 3 blocks from the beach 1 block away from all the night life that Playa del Carmen has to offer. The host was very prompt to arrive to the property to let us in and to take care of all our needs. Everything is within walking distance from this beautiful Apartment. Even Walmart is only 2 blocks away along with the ADO Buss terminal. Very easy to get around in this location.

Best location

  • 5 of 5

Property is right where you want to be, close to all the action in Playa but not so close thag you can not rest and relax. It felt like being home because of the kitchen and dinning room being so open and spacious. Hope to go soon again

Clean Top Floor Studio Comfortable for 2!

  • 4 of 5

My friend & I enjoyed our stay at this top floor studio during our stay in Playa Del Carmen for 3 nights. There was some confusion with the 1st and 2nd payments as I made them on time but the person in charge didn't show payments cleared so I kept getting invoices emailed to me. It was all resolved but was time-consuming on my part having to call VRBO to confirm my payment was received. I'd suggest a quicker response time when finalizing payments via VRBO.

Overall, we enjoyed the studio. It was clean and comfortable for 2 girls and also felt very safe with the ability to lock nearly 3 doors before you reach the door to the unit. There is a lockbox located outside the condo complex which we used at night to keep the keys in (we didn't want to risk losing them and/or getting pick-pocketed with the safe key on the same keychain). It was a wonderful alternative to be extra safe! It has a wonderful downtown location just minutes from restaurants and nightlife. It's also just 4 blocks from the beach.

Concerns/Resolutions -

The unit needed some basic maintenance done as well as a fix to the horrible water pressure we had in the kitchen (dripping out of the tap) and the shower. I emailed my contact and everything was indeed fixed the same day so we were very appreciative on the quick turn time. We also requested additional shower towels for our 4 day stay.

There was some on/off banging noise next door during our stay. We couldn't figure out what it was as there is no neighboring unit to the right.


I'd recommend mentioning in the profile that there are 6 flights of stairs to climb to reach the 3rd top floor studio. We weren't aware there wasn't an elevator and definitely would have packed our bags much lighter. Without a bellman, it was definitely a task in itself.

With 2 girls getting ready, I'd highly recommend a floor length mirror at the end of the bed between the outlet up on the wall high and the outlet down on the floor. That way, 2 people can easily get ready and use multiple outlets with the ability of a mirror.

Some suggestions....

Since we enjoyed the unit during Playa's winter, the dipping pool was very cold. It also happened to be very windy during our stay. This was one key feature why we rented the unit, however, we were unable to use it which was a real bummer. It would be wonderful as a jacuzzi year round!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and glad that the landlord responded quickly to our concerns and resolved them.

Perfect Caribbean Getaway, just save the sales pitch!

  • 4 of 5

First off I'd like to say overall, this penthouse apartment was perfect for our "girls trip" vacation, had a really great visit to PDC this time and I would, after all is said, good and bad, stay here again and recommend it to others. But before I would recommend the property I would give the pros and cons to someone so they could make a choice that would be right for them. With that said, here are the "pros" & "cons".


*Good price

*Great location (15th Ave. between 10th & 12th Street)

*Secure(except for broken lock on sliding glass door that we told Billy about on day one and wasn't fixed for three days)

*Clean Apartment (except for the ice chest left behind from the previous guests that had something old in it that had attracted bugs that laid hundreds of eggs. Called management and it was removed and the area cleaned)

*Great plunge pool

*Modern amenities (wifi, tv, ac)

*Moderate kitchenette with the necessary equipment

*Good view

*Great proximity to 5th Ave.


*Sales pitch from Billy (sales associate?). Within us being on the ground in Mexico no more then 2-3 hours, Billy hit us with a sales pitch, wasn't interested. Let's just say, if your guests are renting an apartment and not staying in a hotel or all inclusive, there's a good chance they've been here before and aren't into all the tourist stuff so may be best to be a little more subtle when trying to sale your travel and touring company. It was a turn off and what was worse, Billy made himself very scarce for the next 9 days, he said we could call if we needed something but other then that we never heard from him again, not a good host in my opinion.

*Access to clean sheets and towels (we were there 10 days and only had sheets and towels changed out once, not good when the weather is hot, sweaty and humid). I'm good with no housekeeping but the towels and the little amount we were left was not good.

*Water pressure in the penthouse (Billy told us being on the top floor, it is what it is, or isn't in this case). Water literally trickled from the shower faucet.

*71 stairs from bottom to top and visa versa (this may not be a con to you, actually we didn't really mind it, did the stairs at least three times a day, good exercise, not recommended for people in poor health or who have small kids)

So, as you can see, much less to not like then there was to like. Nice penthouse, great time just maybe a sales associate more in tune to what people really want and don't want!

Close to the action but quiet just the same.

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and is located walking distance to pretty much everything. Be prepared to hike four flights of stairs. The host, Brenden, was awesome.

Wonderful Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the spring break with our daughter, Carla. This is the first time we have been to Mexico as a family. Our daughter loved having a pool just steps from our bedroom. And we loved that we could relax on the terrace while she played and had fun!

The apartment is close enough to the restaurants, beach and shopping options that we never walked more than five minutes for anything we really wanted to do. We would recommend this apartment to anyone that likes privacy in a great location, will definitely be back.
