We really enjoyed our time in Playa del Carmen and loved the condo. It was close to the beach and Fifth avenue. We enjoyed it so much we want to return next year!
This condo is just as described. It is clean, comfortable and charming. The size was great for a family of 4 and the beds were comfy. Noemi was very attentive, in fact, when the pilot light was out on our water heater, she sent someone on Christmas day to turn it back on. The condo is a short walk to the beach and to Avenida 5. It felt safe to walk around at night. The biggest downside for us was the noise from the discos down the street. We were there during the week between Christmas and New year so it was the highest of high season. Discos were blasting music until all hours of the night (and morning). We had to close the windows so that we could sleep which was disappointing because the fresh air felt great. We were told that during that specific week, the discos are allowed to stay open really late, so this may not be a problem during the rest of the year, but it is definitely worth considering.
The condo is in a great location! 5th street is one block away as well as the beach and we could walk everywhere we needed. We flew into Cancun and had a taxi bring us, so no need to use the parking space provided. The condo was very nice and we enjoyed having a kitchen, so we could make our own food and sit and enjoy our meals. The rooftop patio had fantastic views of the ocean and we sat out there every night. There are some clubs nearby and you can hear them when outside, but upon entering the condo you cannot hear them at all.
The management company was great to work with. We lost a set of keys to the condo while there and did not have the spares on us. We contacted them and the team was out there within an hour and gave us a replacement set. Really great people to work with!
This condo is nestled among beautiful trees on the 3rd floor. Great location- 5 minute walk to beach, 5 minute walk to 5th Avenue (Avenida 5), 10 minute car drive to Walmart and MEGA. The condo looks exactly like the pictures. Colorful, bright and clean! Beds were comfortable. AC worked good. 2 bathrooms/showers were great to have especially after day trips to Xplor, Tulum, Coba, Xel-ha and Chichen Itza. After our daily excursions, we would come back, shower, relax (nap) and then hit 5th Avenue (Avenida 5) in the evening for shopping, food, entertainment and drinks. The other days we slept in, cooked breakfast, hung out at the beach, came back to the condo for lunch and then at night hit 5th Avenue (Avenida 5). Food prices in Playa were inexpensive but we were able to save money by making our breakfast and quick lunches in the condo. Great to have a full kitchen and not have to venture out for every meal or snack. Condo also has a washer and dryer! No need to over pack with lots of clothes just need to do one load during your stay. 3 balconies and a rooftop deck offers plenty of space for alone time. The building is gated and you cannot get in without a key-very secure. Also parking space was in the gate. Great to have a free secure parking space during your stay. Wi-Fi/TV had a great connection. Management, Latido de Mexico, are very prompt to responding to emails/questions. Management allowed us to check in during the morning and not have to wait till the afternoon. Thank you! Also we had an issue with the shower the first day we arrived but didn't know till 9 pm (Sat night). I emailed Naomi at Latido de Mexico and the next day SUNDAY at 10:30 am the plumber was there to fix it. WOW! No other issues during our stay but we were confident that we would be taken care of promptly by Latido de Mexico. I don't get service like that in my apartment here in Los Angeles. This place is a hidden gem and is maintained excellent by Latido de Mexico.
My friend and I believe the location of the Las Flores Girasol condominium to be the best in Playa. It was a very easy walk, approx. (1.5 blocks) to the beach and the main avenue which provided shopping and multiple restaurants at every price point. The condo was very well equipped. The kitchen had numerous small appliance and there were abundant linens and paper products. The balconies were set among the palm tree tops and provided a place for quit reflection at the back of the condo or the front balcony offered a view of the street. The staff was very helpful and quick to respond to e-mails or calls. The maid service was prompt and thorough and the maintenance person kept the exterior spotless. The financial arrangements were made smoothly and the deposit returned promptly upon inspection. Friends and I are considering a longer stay next spring. The overall experience was wonderful.
