“Nice staff but it's a work in progress”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We've stayed at LaPlaya condo 10 days in july 2013.
The owner, Isaac, and is wife, Anna, were very kind, helpful and took care of their guests. They given us a map of Playa del Carmen when we arrived. We tried recommendations of restaurants and it was worth it (Ta Camaron and Los Aguachilles).
We really appreciated they pick up and get us back at the airport at a reasonable fee.
The price was very good for a 10 days stay (550 US) but we wouldn't have pay more.
The condo is situated at 5 minutes from the beach but a little further from the action. We were in the middle of a construction area. In two or three years, it's gonna be a fantastic place to stay, but, right now, the location is a bit bizarre in the middle of shelters and poor neighborhood but we felt safe and enjoyed our daily walk (15 min.) to the center of Playa del Carmen.

The room is really, really basic. It was equipped with a tv, good A/C, fridge, microwave, double bed and a sofa/futon. But, it was a bit disappointing. When we first arrived, there was no towels, no toilet paper, no soap in the bathroom and just 1 fork, 1 plate and a couple of glass. It was missing some items you are expecting to have in a condo, like an oven, so we had to use a camping stove. There was no BBQ in our bloc. The cable/internet was cut by the municipality during 4 days but, Isaac gave us his DVD player. It was very kind from him.
We though we would have at least beach towels but there wasn't. So keep in mind you have to bring some cause Cannibal Royal (the nearest beach club) don't provide it either. We were also told we would have special price at Cannibal Royal, but it wasn't the case.
So, if you are looking for a nice spot, all equipped condo, to stay in Playa del carmen, if you love to relax in bed in the morning and enjoy cooking, I would not recommend to stay there.
But, if you are looking just for a place to sleep because you are always on a run and don't have trouble with the walking distance to downtown, go for it! The owner is very kind.

So, even if we loved the staff and the owner (the maids are very good), we will not book LaPlaya condo again.

Room Tip: Choose a room that's not on the street and check your patio door; our wasn't even locked.
