We loved this space... quiet, peaceful, just as pictured. Right next to 5th Ave shops, just a couple of blocks from gorgeous beaches (we spent a couple of days at Kool beach club), and near to everything in Playa Del Carmen. We rented a car (which we stored in covered parking on site while we were out), and Mercedes’ place served as a perfect home base for our group of 4 - my husband, 17–year daughter and friend - to explore Tulum, Chitzen Itzá, numerous cenotes and Cozumel. Mercedes, Patricia, and Mario were very attentive. We sent a note asking to have additional bottled water delivered, and it was in the apt by the time we got back - less than 20 minutes after we sent the request! Beautiful place, perfect location. Highly recommend!

A beautiful luxury style condo in a great location right on 5th. On top of the place Mercedes and her team Melina and Miguel were there for us along the way to answer any questions and provide assistance if needed. Great stay and will repeat!

It was an awesome! To future travelers you were definitely enjoy it!

Amazing place. Steps from the famous 5th Avenue. The private pool is amazing.
Chantal01 / 05 / 2019
Great host! Great location! Near everything.. fabulous vacation we had !!
Adela01 / 04 / 2019
Location, location, location! It is steps away from everything Quinta Avenida has to offer. It’s right next to La Bodeguita del Medio which is open until 1:30am with lots of music (can be heard from the rooftop) and dancing if that’s of interest. We love it so it was perfect for us. The apartment is fully equipped and very cozy. AC works great! Cools very fast, something that is essential throughout the Riviera and it’s humidity. A couple of things I noticed were missing that would definitely add to the experience is a towel hanger and brighter light around the bathroom mirrors. More vegetation around the pool and barbecue area (as advertised) to create more privacy, specially since there are workers on neighboring rooftops. Other than that, the devices to play music weren’t working and the hot tub’s plug was broken so we couldn’t fill the tub. But the service was very good; they sent someone right away to look into it. Overall, I would recommend the villa and its amenities for a pleasant stay.

This condo really was in an amazing location with great access to 5th ave. It was very big and we really enjoyed using the outdoor areas when we were at the condo. Mercedes and Patricia were very responsive and easy to work with whenever we had any questions or concerns.
Alexander01 / 04 / 2019
This place is great. Easy and secure parking,Private pool, private roof top , and very centrally located right on 5th Avenue. Location, location, location.
Alberto01 / 03 / 2019
Very central area and very safe. You can securely walk to the beach and the bar area. Check in was very easy ( even if we arrived late at night ~1 am ) The house is even bigger than it looks from the pics. Highly recommended
Kimberly01 / 03 / 2019
Beautiful place. Great communication from Mercedes. The condo amenities were lovely.
Jeffrey01 / 02 / 2019
This place is beautiful, with wonderful views of the ocean from the apartment, balcony, and roof area. Large pool with lots of recliners and being right on the beach were a plus.
Dennis01 / 01 / 2019
Condo looked exactly as advertised. The location of the condo is perfect. It’s near a large pharmacy tons of bars, restaurants and a taxi stand. Mercedes made our stay very special by helping me with a special request to have roses waiting for my spouse . She also had a list of excursions and services to do. Balcony pool and rooftop view were also very good. Would def stay here again
Kelsey01 / 01 / 2019
Great location, and cute apartment. MAKE SURE: ask the host about any and all people that will be entering the apartment!!! She let us know a maid was coming one day and the time, which we agreed on. There was another day the maid showed up unannounced while we were sleeping. After I let the host know my concerns, she still failed to warn us about the 2nd unannounced visit by the gardener (who arrived while we were gone and we walked in to doors open and we thought someone had broken in to the apartment until we found the gardener -who was very nice- outside) Would have preferred a warning so we could put away our personal items. Other than that, close to great food, beaches and nightlife. Host is super nice and helpful when arriving but communication on when people would be entering the apartment could be better.
Hector01 / 01 / 2019
Amazing place to take a rest
Lorena01 / 01 / 2019
Great place great location. It has all the amenities it has to offer but a bit pricey for what you actually get. The unstoppable toilet sewage smell all the time made my stay very uncomfortable. Had to have all the time the windows open for the air to circulate but then a lot of mosquitos would come in. They bit both of my sons all the time we started there.
Lauren01 / 01 / 2019
This is an amazing condo that is better than the pictures! The private pool and rooftop was amazing. It was spacious and clean. The communication was incredible and all my answers were answered immediately. I would highly recommend this apartment as long as you're comfortable with completely open bathrooms in each of the bedrooms. It is a bit noisy because it is right off 5th Avenue but it didn't bother us and the convenience of the location outweighed the noise. Great value!
Micheal01 / 12 / 2018
Wow!! Very nice place, better than expected!! Spacious inside and a ton of outdoor space too. The plunge pool was well needed and very nice to have to cool down from sunning on the deck(s) Gas grill was great to use as well. Close to everything even a nice walk to the Mega store for groceries. Your right on 5th, beach is a few minutes walk and some great restaurants as well. You’ll be glad you stayed here!!
Christoph01 / 11 / 2018
Nos pasamos muy padre y el depa muy bonito
Heriberto01 / 11 / 2018
Muy buena atencion y excelente ubicacion
Bryan01 / 11 / 2018
The place was incredible (even better than the photos). It's a little bit difficult to find but just look for Bosques de los Aluxes and you'll be good. It's right next to the main street, the beach, the Hyatt, and just about anything else major in Playa. The attention to detail was also top notch. We were welcomed in with little flowers made of tissue on all of the amenities. Highly recommend and would stay here again.
Catherine01 / 10 / 2018
Absolutely loved our stay here - Mercedes was the perfect host and the location was brilliant. Easy access to everything but removed from the hustle and bustle of Avenue 5. The private pool was bliss, perfect for an afternoon of relaxing. Would highly recommend!
Doa01 / 10 / 2018
We loved the place, it is steps away from the 5th ave strip. The balcony is a great space, we definitely would come back and recommend it to other travellers.
Maria José01 / 09 / 2018
My husband and I stayed at #301 Bosques de Aluxes from 09/03/2018 to 09/10/2018. The condo looks exactly as the pictures. I cannot say enough how optimal the location of the condo is. It is right on 5th Ave at walking distance of everything! We thoroughly enjoyed our strolls on 5th avenue in the evenings. For those that are not too keen on walking, 12th street where some of the major restaurants and clubs are is a short taxi ride away. The condo has all the necessary amenities to make your stay a perfect experience. The Wifi signal was strong and never dropped. The satellite TV signal also never dropped. The plunge pool and entire patio isvery very private, which we absolutely loved. There is also a rooftop space for ultimate sun tanning and lovely views, but we didn't make use of it because we just didn't have enough time. We rented a car so the designated parking space was well used. We decided that whenever we return to Playa, we will definitely try to stay at 301 Bosques de Aluxes again. We recommend it wholeheartedly :)
Paola01 / 08 / 2018
Nice place with an excellent location!!! The pool and the private terrace it was just perfect
Kathleen01 / 08 / 2018
I had a great time in Playa del Carmen partly because of where I stayed. Location is everything and this condo is on Quinta Avenida, away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to everything you need, and especially close to Chez Celine and La Bogedita del Medio! The area is a little noisy at night, but you're on vacation so it shouldn't really matter. The condo itself was very comfortable, clean and met all my expectations. I would definitely recommend this listing and will use it again should I return to PDC.
Tom01 / 07 / 2018
This is a great location and the perfect place to retreat at the end of a long day/night. Even though we were almost right above a live music venue we could barely hear the music with the doors shut (we didn't even need to close the outside shutters!). Just be aware that each of the bathrooms are somewhat open to the bedrooms. Though, that shouldn't be a problem for most couples.
Good Life Resorts01 / 07 / 2018
Loved the condo! Definitely book this rental. Private pool is nice to relax and cool down. Cable tv package was extensive. Plenty of space inside condo and huge patios. LOCATION is PERFECT: When we booked, we were deciding between [A] a cheaper condo farther away from 5th Ave (amazing walking street with restaurants and shopping), [B] a more expensive lively hotel or [C] this condo close to the action, but not directly on the loud street so it was easy to sleep. In the end, we chose this condo as we wanted to walk downstairs and be near the action. Foodie heaven: The restaurant downstairs “La Bodeguita Del Medio” offers free live and excellent Cuban music. A few doors down, there is an Italian restaurant called “Negroamaro” which boasts a friendly owner/server named Nicola who serves incredible and authentic pasta and pizza.
Jennifer01 / 06 / 2018
The place was spacious and perfect for our family of four. We really loved the terrace with grill and dipping pool. The kids, however, would have preferred a larger communal pool for swimming, considering that during our time of visit the ocean water was brown, smelled like sewage, and had plenty of seaweed. We decided to visit the nearby cenotes, to avoid the beach. We appreciated the availability of the washer and dryer, with detergent provided, to wash our swimwear and beach towels. Mega Supermarket was within walking distance, and we just took a taxi ride back with all our groceries. The place was very clean and we were very comfortable during our stay. We never did see any turquoise waters, which was our main reason for coming to Playa del Carmen. We hope you will have better luck with Mother Nature during your visit to PDC.
Faiz01 / 06 / 2018
Lovely place , definitely I’ll stay here again.
Ore01 / 05 / 2018
The house was great! If you are looking for a central location this is it. You do hear music from the bars under so if you want quiet this might not be the place. Pool and balcony was super nice but the roof seems pointless, need to add some shade there. Also bring speakers because there is no way to play music in the house which was something we expected in a "high-end" place.
Amanda01 / 05 / 2018
My husband and I chose this place for our honeymoon and we're very happy with the condo. It has everything you need and is in the perfect location. Great kitchen, nice living space and very good air conditioning. The patio is a beautiful place to have meals at the table or a beer in the pool. There are many good grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance. Mega and Walmart are great if you want to cook your own meals. Chez Celine has DELICIOUS breakfast, pastries and coffee. Quinta de Piedra downstairs has great Mexican food and excellent margaritas. Other great places near by include Shoebox bakery, El Fogon (tacos al pastor), Inti Beach Club, Micaelas (chilaquiles), Aldea Corazon (beautiful romantic dinner restaurant with a candle lit jungle in the back). We will definitely be back to stay here!!!
Rebecca01 / 05 / 2018
Definitely the best place to stay in Playa! Stayed 5 nights in May and loved every second of it. Gorgeous apartment, private pool, massive rooftop terrace with views to the beach, BBQ, hammock and lots more! Location was ideal - 5 min walk to the beach (quieter section of the beach-away from the big resorts which was a lot better as the area around the resorts smelt) and walking distance to the clubs (approx ten minutes). If you are coming to Playa you will not find a better apartment. Best location and great value!! We will definitely stay here again!
Michele01 / 04 / 2018
We had a slow check in with some confusion and miscommunication. The location was perfect and the private pool right outside of the living room was amazing. Easy access to everything and cabs available 24 hours right out front.
Kimberly01 / 04 / 2018
The photos did not fo this condo justice, it was stunning and clean and was located the perfect street! Everything was in walking distance.
Mark01 / 04 / 2018
Great location on 5th street! The pool was nice for the 4 of us.
Alexander01 / 03 / 2018
Excellent location, very nice apartment, very good service. We really enjoy our stay.
Sarah01 / 03 / 2018
Great apartment!! Very clean and great outdoor area. Location was perfect!
Steven01 / 01 / 2018
Great place if you want to get to 5th and the beach. loved hanging out on the terrace and in the pool. actually spent more time there than at the beach. I would recomend!
Stephan01 / 01 / 2018
Great unit , right on the 5 Avenue and 3 mins walk to Mamita's beach club
Dani01 / 12 / 2017
This 2 bedroom condo was absolutely amazing! My family loved staying here!
Fedor01 / 11 / 2017
В целом неплохо. Но вечерами слишком шумно, особенно в выходные. Сантехника была не лучшего качества. И расположение туалета прямо в комнате вызывало вопросы. Крыша и терраса понравились больше всего.
Kevin01 / 11 / 2017
Mercedes’ place is absolutely fantastic! Everything from the rooftop patio with great views, the main patio with a nice little pool and dining set to the great layout of the house. The location is great too, right off the main tourist street and a short walk to the beach. The only minor negative is that because it is so close to the main strip it can be a little noisy at night but it really didn’t bother us much. Also check in was a bit confusing as it was really difficult to figure out where to go as the parking area and main entrance is well hidden on the other side of the pedestrian street. Overall a great experience and I would definitely stay here again.
Carlos01 / 09 / 2017
Excelentes instalaciones tal cual lo muestras en La foto y la gente que nos recibió como también la que nos despidió súper amables y muy colaboradores La ubicación muy buena tanto para ir por vacaciones o por trabajo como me tocó a mí. La terraza con la piscina muy cómoda y disfrutable Volvería sin pensarlo
Janine01 / 08 / 2017
Mercedes is a wonderful host. There was a very nice person that picked us up and showed us around the appartment. Great rooftop, wonderful beds. The appartment is quiet, though in the midst of an area with cafe's and clubs. You will still hear great music. If you are looking for a quiet place its better to ask Mercedes for her other venues. She has more.
Vane01 / 07 / 2017
Aaron01 / 06 / 2017
Great Condo right on 5th Ave. Dip pool was great to come back to every day after seeing the sights. As others have stated the music from 5th can be a bit loud at night but we really only noticed it when we were outside enjoying the deck and pool in the evening. Inside the condo it was not to loud to bother us.
Victor01 / 05 / 2017
we had a great stay! check in lady made sure we knew everything about the condo, beautiful condo and i loved how there is no need for taxis everything is there!
Chantal01 / 04 / 2017
The pictures of this house don't do it justice. It's beautiful! Private pool, beautiful private balcony and there's even a BBQ! They provide all the necessary utensils in the house and even provide water as well. So you can definitely spend a night on the balcony cooking BBQ. The location is perfect! It's right on 5th avenue and a 5 minute walk to the beach clubs if you're into that. Location is also extremely safe and gated as well. Kid friendly too! I will definitely be coming back and staying here.
Mory01 / 04 / 2017
Absolutely awesome location! Very walkable, we were right on northern end of 5th with all the restaurants and entertainment. I felt very safe at this location. Gated underground dedicated parking spot made it easy to come and go with our rental car. The condo was well equipped with plenty of beach towels, boogie boards, cleaned snorkeling mouthpiece, water dispenser, laundry detergent, and a full kitchen with all the tools and utensils. The condo was very clean, but it is showing a little bit of wear and tear with chipped indoor tiles, stained shower tiles, etc. My daughter enjoyed the small shaded dip pool on the patio. We were able to watch her though the sliding doors. The jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom worked, but it took quite a while to fill up, especially with hot water. Note that the toilets and showers are open to the bedrooms with no bathroom doors. The rooftop patio is large with four cushioned lounge chairs but no shade. It had a distant view of the ocean on one side. From another side looking down, we had glimpses of 5th. Since we were on 5th, there were significant volume from the music, late into the night; especially in the front bedroom. We stayed from Monday to Friday. There was maid service on Wednesday. She came in while we were out and it was a nice surprise to have a cleaning done in the middle of our stay. The host was friendly and kind. She met us near the condo to check us in. She walked us through the contract and showed us all the amenities, including checking to make sure the wifi worked. Check out time was 10am, which was ok with us. Host came promptly at 10am and did the walk through. The contract said that if they do not have new guest arriving that day, u can request 24 hr in advance a later check out time, up to 1pm with no charge. It was a very good stay. I adore the location! Even though we had a rental car, it was so nice to just walk downstairs for early breakfast, ice cream in the evenings, and just stroll through 5th to soak in the atmosphere!
Manolo01 / 01 / 2017
Excelente localización lugar limpio y seguro . Excelente atención de Mercedes y su equipo. El Penthouse se encuentra muy bien cuidado y equipado . la pequeña alberca es un plus ya sea que viajes de pareja o con niños . Recomiendo el lugar ampliamente.
