“Great location- a few niggles”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here for 2 weeks over Christmas/NewYear and my friend booked from the U S via BRIC rental. That side of it was very smooth and they offered transfers to and from Cancun for 3 of us for total $85 each way which was good value and very convenient. The concierge service was a bit flaky after the initial booking in (which was fine and nice touch to give us a free mobile phone for local calls). Even allowing for Christmas holidays, we waited several days for an iron and our bottled water ran out but the minor issue with the boiler was fixed quickly. Also the maid service was patchy but may be better in non Holiday Time. The location was great for us as 40 somethings, the quieter north end of Playa, just off 5th Ave at the "Italian" area. We felt very safe at all times even though the streets are quite dark and quiet here. The short walk to the beach was ideal, bit smelly in places but ok at the condo and on the beach. Turn left and you reach Cannibal Royale a very cool beach bar full of beautiful people and lovely food. There's a full time dj mixing great music, not too intrusive. There's a minimum fee of 150 pesos (£7.50/$11) for the bed and brolly each but we had no trouble reaching that with the food and cocktails. Great staff too and toilets too! Back to the condo, great roof top pool, hardly used by others even at peak times. Free wi fi great to have. Huge range of satellite tv though not much uk stuff. Well stocked kitchen and washer and dryer. 2 balconies overlooking patch of jungle and distant view to the sea. Nice marble tiles throughout and separate air con in bedrooms and lounge. Unlimited bottled water supplied. Niggles: fridge old and tired and dripped. Main bathroom tired and needs refurb of bath/shower, expected better at this price. Sheets and towels old, pillows and mattress a bit lumpy. Can be noisy at night, noise carries from condo below and we were unlucky and had some noisy neighbours. Overall a good location and good facilities especially roof top pool.
