“This was a beautiful 3 bedroom penthouse, very accurately represented by the photos. Everything was sparkling clean, it was well-equipped with everything you could need and Mercedes was so responsive. She set up transportation for us to and from the airport, even though our request was very last-minute. The location in Playa is wonderful--a short walk to either the beach or to fifth avenue with all the shops and restaurants. My family of five had a great vacation here!”

Awesome stay for our group of 6. Prime location, steps from the beach, restaurants, nightlife, etc. Modern interiors with two outdoor areas and a roof terrace. Each bedroom had it’s own bathroom and the condo came fully furnished with extra bed linens, towels, toiletries and kitchenware. Will definitely book again next time we’re in PDC.

The place was beautiful. It was easy to park and walkable to everything. We enjoyed our stay.

Mercedes’ place was simply wonderful. Great location and the response rate of problems was quick and easy. The toilet flooded and we were out of filtered water while we were there, but the repair man came within an hour and water was replaced within 24 hrs. Someone was there upon our arrival and walked through all the rooms with us and ensured the safety boxes worked. The condo had everything we needed and more. The only thing we wish we knew was that the hot tub is used more like a cold soaking tub since it was filled with cold water and couldn’t be heated. The location couldn’t be more convenient—we were just one block over from the main shopping/dining street and a couple of blocks away from one of the must-visit beaches. It was a bit loud with the partying noises at night however if you’re traveling with young kids, like toddlers or babies. Our 4-year old son would sometimes be kept up until 2-3am. Otherwise, we would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend Mercedes’ place to anyone who’s visiting Playa del Carmen!

Second time to PDC and with a group of 6, staying in hotel was going to be way more expensive so we started looking into Airbnb options and fell in love with this place. Absolutely perfect layout - 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with an awesome sundeck and small hot-tub. Check in and check out was very easy and we appreciated having someone meet us to show us the property. All the rooms were well equipped with towels, extra pillows etc, even a safe in each room which was a nice touch. Shampoo and soap was in each bathroom. Although we didn't cook, the kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials and we were provided a 5 gallon water bottle. Loved the location and would happily stay here again! Easy walking distance to everywhere, and it's nicely located on a vehicle allowed street so tour operators can easily pick you up.

Jason01 / 04 / 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The condo is in great shape, very well maintained and looks exactly like the pictures. The space is incredible and you have a lot of options for lounging comfortably both indoors and outdoors. The location can't be beat, it's just a few blocks from the beach and one block from 5th ave, which has all of the shopping, food, nightlife you could want. Mercedes and her team were responsive and friendly, making sure we arrived without issue and handling any questions that came up throughout the stay. I would happily stay here again!
Toni01 / 04 / 2018
Perfect location and a great clean apartment! Perfect!
Joe01 / 03 / 2018
Visited Playa Del Carmen the week of March 19th to 26th and stayed at this location, which was amazing not only for location so close to beach and 5th Avenue, the condo is very roomy and lots of amnesties, it was very clean and comfortable and the staff was very Prompt, courteous and quick to response to all our needs. Definitely a must return from us. Thank you all and especially to Patricia for taking everyone of my calls.
Enrique01 / 03 / 2018
The location was 5 min walk to the beach with plenty of good restaurants on the way. The management team was quick to respond to us in a matter of minutes. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
Silvana01 / 02 / 2018
Il soggiorno è stato davvero piacevole! La casa è situata in un’ottima posizione, sulla quinta strada, ma comunque tranquilla. Il servizio dì check-in è stato ottimo, a mezzanotte... la casa perfettamente attrezzata con tutto ciò che serve! Molto bello il solarium con vista sull’oceano! Ci ritorneremo sicuramente !
Giovanno01 / 01 / 2018
Es una ubicación fabulosa, la mejores playas y a una cuadra de la Quinta. Zona segura y de ambiente. El apartamento es precioso y con excelentes servicios y agregan servicios no acostumbrados en otros alojamientos que hacen la estancia maravillosa.
Daniel01 / 12 / 2017
Excellent place. The PH is just like in the pics, walking distance to everything, 2 blocks from mamitas beach club. For sure will stay here again
Landry01 / 11 / 2017
This was a fantastic spot. Just a couple blocks from the beach and a block away from the wonderful fifth avenue. The place looks even better than the pictures. The kitchen is fully stocked! They even have a maid come and clean every third day of your stay. A special bonus is that they provided me with a contact to book tourist attractions. So seamless. If you plan on coming to PDC. Definitely consider staying here!
Michael01 / 10 / 2017
Modern and Stylish home. Decorated nicely, and well appointed. Everything you need to feel right at home. We found our bed to be extremely comfortable. House keeping came once during our 5 day stay, and did a great job, and the dishes too. The condo is literally a 2 minute walk to Mamita’s beach. We spent lots of time there, and found it to be a great spot. A Margarita in our hands, reclined in a lounge chair, and enjoying the shade provided by our umbrella. Perfect people watching location. Playa Paradise manages the property, but they can also help you schedule day trips. For a very reasonable fee, they can pick you and your guests up at the airport, very convenient if you are not renting a car. We scheduled our day trips with them, and it was like clock work. Xcaret was such a fun day and we highly recommend it. If you are going to the Mayan ruins, be prepared. It’s a 3 hour bus ride each way. Around the condo there are tons of restaurants, Starbucks, and convenient stores all around. We took the ferry to Cozumel for dinner, and had a great meal at Kondesa, which we loved. Great food and a very cool ambiance. The condo is everything you need and more. Defiantly upscale, and a great place to call home during your stay.

I like the building complex. It's in a nice spot with a nearby pharmacy and OXXO. Nearby restaurants and Starbucks is great and easy access to beach. Inside is done very nicely. Will stay here again.
Rathy01 / 06 / 2017
Great location, Walking distance to everything. I wasn't to fawn of the 3 flight of stair due to heavy lugged but over all beautiful place. Didn't get the chance to use the Jacuzzi due to a broken valve other that that everything was expected. Great communication, Service guys were there in blink of an eye.

An awesome location - perfectly set between the Beach clubs and water activities and 5th Ave. Didn't use roof top - somewhat strange separated space upstairs for master bedroom. Not sure I would have liked the separation if I had children rather than adults staying with us. Overall location location location it was perfect.
Bruno01 / 03 / 2017
Great place with a great location. Communication was easy.
Jimmy01 / 03 / 2017
Had a wonderful time with my in-laws 5 of us total. We all had a great time! Mercedes and crew were very professional, took care of all our needs. Great location, condo was as described hope to return!
Lindsay01 / 02 / 2017
Office staff and maintenance/maids were friendly. Had issue with ants and one friendly cockroach. Timing of check in and check out was an issue. We arrived at 3pm and maid was there for another 1.5 hours. At check out (10 am, which is early in my opinion to begin with) the maid arrived 1 hour early. They really need to work on their turnover of the place.
Tobias01 / 11 / 2016
Location and Apartment is great.
Jacinda01 / 08 / 2016
The house was absolutely amazing and in such a perfect location. Walking distance to everything and right by the beach. I highly recommend! We had a fantastic stay!
Jonathan01 / 06 / 2016
El lugar esta muy bonito, cómodo, cuenta con todos los servicios. El lugar esta como lo describe el anuncio. la cercanía de la playa es lo mejor del lugar. Muy recomendable
Theresa01 / 06 / 2016
We were met as soon as we arrived and she went over all of the amenities with us. Very smooth arrival. The penthouse is beautiful and in excellent condition. Everything worked. The bedrooms are huge and spacious and the decor is lovely. The kitchen is stocked extremely well! Probably the best stocked kitchen we have ever rented. From utensils to pots and pans and all of the plates/ glasses you could need to coffee filters and some condiments. There were also some beach bags. Lots and lots of storage space in that kitchen. Be aware, there is no dishwasher, we knew that but that may be a deal breaker to some people. We bought paper plates and cups. A couple of small issues-- the BBQ is very old and needs to be replaced-it would not hold heat-so we were not able to grill like we had planned. The coffeemaker is an "all in one" and difficult to pour without the coffee grounds getting into the coffee cup. Other than those small issues, this penthouse is absolutely perfect and Mercedes did a great job! We have rented from Mercedes in the past and will definitely look for properties managed by Mercedes in the future.
Elysse01 / 06 / 2016
We had a wonderful stay at the penthouse in Playa Del Carmen. We were greeted from one of the friendly staff when we arrived who explained the rules, cleaning, the area which was helpful and made us feel very welcome. The house was in a perfect location to the shops. Very central and so nice to be able to walk everywhere especially around to 5th avenue. The house was incredibly clean and the origami made from the towels was a lovely touch. The only issue we had was the lack of shade on the top levels. We weren't able to stay in the hot tub for long periods of time or the third level due to heat. If there were umbrellas on the top two levels that would have been perfect. Overall a wonderful stay and we really did have the best time! Thank you
Alinta01 / 05 / 2016
This place was perfect for our week long vacation in Playa Del Carmen. We were a group of three couples and the apartment allowed us each to have our own space (and bathrooms) while also having a spacious kitchen/living/balcony area to hang out. The apartment is perfectly located one street back from 5th Avenue and a very short walk to the beach. As we had been travelling for a few weeks prior, the washing machine and dryer were a HUGE bonus. Mercedes and her staff were a short phone call or email away if we needed anything. Would highly recommend this place, thanks for a great week!
Ginger01 / 04 / 2016
The condo was beautiful and modern and very clean. We had plenty of room to hang out, comfortable beds, and three beautiful bathrooms. This was probably the best stocked rental I've had. The kitchen had everything we needed. The water cooler was a nice bonus, as were the beach towels. Condo is very quiet despite being close to 5th Avenue. Fantastic location!! The only negative: two nice decks upstairs are only usable early morning or late night, as there is no shelter from the sun (the uppermost does have a lovely ocean view!)
Kris01 / 04 / 2016
Great condo in a great location. Mercedes and her team were very welcoming. Very clean and modern space with comfortable beds. We would definitely stay here again!
Chad01 / 04 / 2016
Since this review may be a little long, let me get out the quick summary of the important things. This was my first experience with Airbnb, I must say that Mercedes and team made this a perfect experience. Communication was great all the way up to the trip and the condo was exactly as described. I wouldn't hesitate to book another stay with Mercedes and the Playa Paradise team. Patricia coordinated the van to pick us up from the airport in Cancun and drive us directly to the condo in Playa del Carmen. She was waiting for us as we arrived to check in. They had the condo ready, clean, and the air conditioning on. Condo Olas was amazing. The 360 degree view from the rooftop deck was outstanding. You can see the ocean on one side and the great views of the city all around. In the evening when it cooled down there was a wonderful ocean breeze. We chose to go with a condo to allow us the ability to prepare some meals as a family, and have a place to come back and relax. This condo was perfect. Commercial Mexican, a mega mart, was about a 10 minute walk from the condo. We picked up groceries for the week and had a taxi bring us back to the condo for about 50 pesos (the taxi's are lined up out in front of the store). The front deck made a perfect place to enjoy breakfast and coffee listening the city wake up. We found the kitchen well stocked and made a few of our own dinners while enjoying the perfect home-made margarita. What a fun time sipping Don Julio margaritas, sitting on the roof top deck while listening to the city night life all around us. Location. This condo is perfectly situated and within walking distance to everything you will need. One block to Calle Quinta Avenda, two blocks to the beach, a Starbucks around the corner and multiple restaurants and bars to choose from. Two places you will certainly want to try is El Diez (the Tender Skirt steak is very good), and Micaelas for authentic Mexican. If you like coconut shrimp, make sure to order that at Micaelas. For brunch or lunch try Chez Celine. Mamitas beach club is nice, but if you want to enjoy a peaceful time at the beach go in the morning. Once it gets into the afternoon they crank up the music. Mornings start slow here and everything is open late. At the end of our week, Patricia had again coordinated a van to pick us up at the condo and return us to the airport. The private van was a bit more expensive than bus or shared shuttle but was worth the extra cost. Bottom line. . . great place, great people, good communication, outstanding value. Highly recommend. If you have a family or a larger group, you will be glad you chose the condo over small hotel rooms.
Saad01 / 03 / 2016
Mercedes was very quick and responsive, had a great time at the place. Only complaints I had was the slow draining sink, slow wi-fi, and the smell at times from outside or a/c unit. The place was very well equipped! room service did come once and did a fantastic job. great location to the highway and to the beach / 5th avenue.
Phil01 / 03 / 2016
This was a great property for our group of five on vacation in Playa del Carmen. The location was perfect, just steps away from the beach and plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Mercedes was very welcoming and respectful. The check-in process was smooth and on time. I misread the description about the Jacuzzi not realizing it wasn't a hot tub, so that was a bit disappointing; but that was not the host's fault. Overall, I would highly recommend this property for any family or group of friends on vacation.
Julia01 / 01 / 2016
This place was beautiful. Exactly as the pictures show. It was within very close walking distance to the main strip and to the beach, which was great. Because you are so close to everything, it gets noisy at night, but I felt it was totally worth it. Communication was smooth and all our questions were answered in a timely fashion. This ad does say there is a cleaning service every 3rd day that we did not recieve and the Internet was a little choppy. We still loved this place and are happy we stayed here
Danielle01 / 01 / 2016
The condo was exactly like the pictures described. So close to 5th Avenue and around the corner from Mamitas Beach club. In terms of style and comfort this condo is unbelievable. I loved the rooftop living allowing for sunning away from the crowds of the beach. The music can be heard from the rooftop bedroom at night but with the air con on not at all. We travelled for New Years Eve and couldn't be happier with the location and condo. Mercedes team were really responsive and were quick to come to assist if we needed anything. I will definitely return to stay again!
