We just got back from 8 nights in E1. We had a wonderful experience with the condo and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in downtown Playa. We have been going to PDC for years and this was the first time we rented a condo vs staying at a nearby hotel. I was a bit apprehensive at first but the minute we walked onto the property everything was perfect. I was more than impressed with the cleaning folks and having a security guard at the gate 24/7 is nice. You can also get food and drinks from the friendly waiter who serves the property. The location can not be beat, just steps from 5th Ave and even closer to the Caribbean! E1 is on the ground floor which we thought was ideal as we have young kids and a grandma traveling with us, so no stairs and to slide your door open to the pool was perfect. Each of the units look pretty similar as well. It is very likely that we will stay at Luna Encantada again. I liked the fact that its a smaller property, some of the competing properties nearby like El Faro or El Taj seem too big, too many rooms, etc. Luna is much more intimate and peaceful. As no review can be 100% perfect the only real criticism I can make is that the king bed in the master sweet was a bit hard. I did not mind but that would be about the only change I could see them making, a softer mattress. It would also be nice if there was some form of gym membership nearby, some of the other condos on the north side of town come with a gym membership to get a workout in, but hey, running on the beach and morning laps in the pool does the trick.
