“Visit PDC the right way !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Condos are the right choice for Playa del Carmen. Right on the beach, with easy access to restaurants and shopping. Unlike all the beach clubs surrounding this property, beach loungers are limited to residents and results in a very uncrowded atmosphere. The condos are very nice, with unbelievable views of the water. Sometimes it felt like we were on a cruise ship, because looking out from inside the condo, all one sees is water. Water pressure not good, but that is a minor concern. We've stayed at El Taj as well, and the units are very similar. But LE is less crowded, and no boats on the beach. Don't listen to anyone that complained about fusion next door - the noise is minimal, and it's kind of convenient having a nice bar and restaurant right next door.

Room Tip: We stayed in both D3 and C3. The balaconies overlooking the beach, and the rooftop lounges, are spec...

Our family of 5 stayed most happily in H-1Luna Encantada from December 16-22, 2012. The condo itself was beautiful; every morning we opened the patio doors and had the stunning view of the gardens, pool, beach, and Caribbean. We spent many happy hours on Luna's beachfront; beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels were provided. We were very spoiled indeed! Property Manager Alberto was most helpful in arranging our transportation to/from the airport. He also helped us to hire Ivan for 2 days of driving. Ivan was an outstanding guide to a cenote, Tulum, and Akumal Beach. Luna Encantada has an outstanding staff from Alberto and Jose regularly checking in with us, to Christina in housekeeping, to the wonderful security and maintenance staff. This was our 2nd trip to PDC, and we plan to stay again at Luna Encantada.

Great location in Playa Del Carmen. Right on the beach and 1/2 block to Quinta Avenida 5th
Avenue - 24 hour security. I took my wife and three kids (22,18,16) December 19 - 26, 2012 to PDC for a little holiday get away. I have a hard time swallowing the holiday premium pricing for lodging, but we needed the break, and we love Mexico. I researched for several hours over the course of several days to find a relatively good value - and this was definitely a good value. Of the ten trips to Riviera Maya over the past nine years, this ranks as the best value. In previous trips we have stayed in condos in Puerto Aventuras,which was fine when the kids were little. But Playa Del Carmen is such a cool place, and Luna Encantada H-2 is in a terrific location. Joe B., the owner of H-2 was great to work with. I think Joe understands value pricing as he was lower than any of his neighbors - and we greatly appreciate the chance to stay in such a nice unit.

I have just returned from a weeks stay at Luna Encantada unit D3 it's one of the penthouses. Rented thru vrbo.com & also arranged private transfer to & from the airport with them. Definitely don't need a car. Anything you need is within easy walking distance otherwise, taxis are abundant & you can rent a car in playa for a day or longer if needed. Excellent value given it's ocean front location & a half block to 5th (main shopping street). The unit is nicely furnished & accommodated 2 of us with room to spare. It would certainly accommodate more people. This is a great place to stay & the staff is helpful. It's more private than a resort & you have a fully furnished kitchen if you choose to cook or just have snacks & beverages. The beds were a bit firm for our liking that's really the only negative I have.

I must admit I was a little nervous about this reservation because it was so inexpensive. Fortunately all of the fabulous reviews on TripAdvisor gave me confidence to book our stay. Our family usually stays in 4+/5 star resorts and condo D1 met and exceeded all expectations!

The location right on the beach and 1/2 block from 5th avenue was absolutely perfect! From the condo you could only see and hear the ocean and then you walk 1/2 block to the hustle and bustle of 5th avenue with open cafes/restaurants and live music. You do not need a car as you can walk or take a taxi everywhere. If you are looking to do an excursion, I would encourage you to book through the rental agency. Tello (from Carribean Properties) took us to Tulum and to/from the airport and he was great.

Unit D1 is in the perfect location, overlooking the beautiful beach so family members can be on the beach, in the ocean and on the balcony all within eyesight of each other. The pool is great and Adean who takes care of the beach chairs and any food/drink orders from Fusion is wonderful. Adean is not paid by Luna Encantada or Fusion, so be sure to tip him well.

The unit is stocked with everything you could need; wifi, bottled water, tv, games, books, washer/dryer, beach towels, safe, 24hr security, etc. Maid service came every other day, which was perfect.

It looks like there is a nightclub being built next door, but that would not put me off renting this unit again. We will certainly be back!

I stayed in unit A3 and loved everything about the condo. It was spacious and well stocked. I was pleasantly suprised to see how much was included in the condo. It came stocked with paper towels, washing powders for the dish washer and the washing machine. It was replaced several times throughout the week.There was a Vonage phone in the unit which came in handy a couple of times.

The view from the condo was great. We could see the pool and the beach from the balcony and the roof top terrace. Each room in the condo had a there own thermostat for the a/c.

The beach in front of the condo was clean, soft sand and pretty blue water. It was easy entry into the water. There is a small area with a few rocks but you can easily walk to either side of the rocks to enter the water. There was not any large beach shelf to get to the water like in most places in Playa Del Carmen. The guy who works the beach and sets up the chairs was very friend and helpful. He even delivered food and drinks from Fusion.

The pool was a nice beach from infiniti pool which was heated to a pleasant temp. We spent a lot of days swimming in the warm pool. :)

The condo is centrally located in Playa Del Carmen. There are many great restaurants and bars with in a couple min walk. Also Fusion next door has fire dancers everynight on the beach which you can watch from the beach in front of the condo.

We rented directly from the owner and he was great to work with and will be renting from him again for our trip next year.

My family and I have stayed in various units at Luna Encantada no less than 10 times (our favorites are D1, C2 and A1) and have never been anything but pleased. The beach-front location, infinity pool, and views make this property seem like your own little slice of heaven.

The units are lovely complete with granite counter tops, stainless appliances, well appointed kitchens and free wi-fi. Housekeeping comes every other day (they do a great job) and provides both clean bath towels and beach towels.The staff at the property are very attentive and accommodating.

I do feel obligated to mention the nightly fire show that is presented at Fusion (FABULOUS beach club and restaurant next door). The show lasts 15 minutes or so and includes a drum show. There's no way of getting around this; it is loud. I recommend you just go on down and take in the show. It's fun and you might as well see it because you're definitely going to hear it.

I highly recommend Luna Encantada. It is by far my first choice of places to stay in Playa. Each time I walk through the door and pull back the curtains to find that breathtakingly blue sea I am overwhelmed by the beauty that is Playa del Carmen - or as I like to call it - my happy place.

Room Tip: Units towards the back of the property are less likely to hear the drums during the fire show.
