“Highly recommended Vacation”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

For various reasons I have been down to mexico 3 times in the last 1.5 years. This condo rental by far was our best overall experience. The condo was beautiful, relatively quiet and well maintained. We were in room 410 which was a two bedroom unit. The only issue with noise was the construction next door but as they finished at 5 and started at 9 am in the morning it did not bother me in the least and I am a VERY light sleeper. Aklso they start at 10 on Saturday and do not work on Sunday.

Now I should mention that we were there with our seventeen year old son. His girlfriend and her parents had another condo in the same building. We did meet up with another couple from Canada with four boys(17-7) and they were a bit board as they did not have all the activities of an all inclusive. For that type of trip I recommend the Iberostar Tucan/Quetzal, just a few minutes from Playa( see my review).

The service was excellent on all fronts from the reception to the guard to the staff at both the Indigo Beach club and the AMAZING Imprevist restaurant which is right next door to the condos.
Even though the beach is a block away it is not a big deal. The area is just beautiful. Very european in flavour . We typically would work out at the gym( see my review for the GYM) every morning , have a fabulous breakfast/Brunch at Imprevist and then go down to the Beach club. At the beach club it is very Boutiquish. Great chairs , crazy good service and a great overall vibe. The only drawback was the fishing boats at the beach. But as everything else is so amazing this can be overlooked. I asked about it and because playa was originally a fishing village the boats have priority. However there is another beach club less than 5 minutes up the beach where you can get a chair,umbrella and towel all included in the price of your condo.

So much to do in playa. Tons of shopping if that is your thing. Just walking around 5th ave. is entertainment in itself. We went to explor, while very expensive is very worth the experience. We also went to Coco Bongo's again - a must!

I should also mention that there are a few other condo's under the umbrella of this company. Go to the web site and you can see all the units. When I go again I will book at the Taj just to be on the beach and I will be sure the unit has a hot tub.

You can't go wrong with this vacation! I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: I like our room , #410 as it was quiet and we had a large balcony.

Dear FactFinder 123,
I am beyond thrilled to see that you had such an outstanding experience with us at Maya Villa. As you mentioned we are not an all inclusive resort however we include a number of onsite amenities to make your stay easy and comfortable including the complimentary GYM membership, free access to 2 beautiful beach clubs and special invitations to our preferred restaurants. It's wonderful to hear that your experience at Imprevist was amazing. Next time you must try PLANK as it is operated by the same amazing family who own Imprevist. I would like to make a small comment about the fishing boats at Indigo Beach - as Playa has grown from a small fishing village into a now busy vibrant beach town we still try to maintain the respect for the fisherman who still remain here by not taking away their livelihood. I could theoretically ask them to move but I truly believe that it would not be fair to ask that of them and besides the fishing boats may actually be the last image of that old time Playa del Carmen charm that once was. This is why we are glad to offer additional beach club access just steps away which is completely clear of boats. In regards to the construction near your hotel, I apologize if that was of any inconvenience. Sometimes there are projects that must be done but like you mentioned workers always will respect the correct hours. This was not an ongoing project or a normal circumstance by any means. I am happy that you would love to return back with us on future stays to Playa and certainly I believe you would love El Taj beachfront for a taste of something new!

Best,
Jack Perlman

We rented Unit 405 at Maya Villas for nine nights in March for our family of three. The reservation process was terrific with the help of Dr Laura and her son, Matt. They answered all my questions and made a great suggestion to pre-order our groceries through the resorts concierges - so nice to arrive with cold drinks all ready for us!
Wanting to try something different than an all-inclusive resort in Playa our search ended with booking Maya Villas. Best location - one short block to 5th and one short block to the beach and beach club.
The unit we had was great for three of us and had everything we needed for our stay, including the friendliest security team. We would recommend this property for anyone that wants to enjoy Playa and is tired of the big resorts. If you are in need of a large pool, this is not the place for you. The pool is good for a quick cool down, but not designed as a pool for swimming. Not a big issue for us since the ocean water was perfect.
Most of our time from morning to late afternoon was spent at the Indigo Beach Club -- pure heaven!

We had never been to Playa del Carmen before. The El Taj was highly recommended to us. The El Taj was full so we book and stayed at the El Taj's sister condo, Maya Villa and it was perfect. It was quiet, clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. The staff was superb: very professional, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We had several great meals. PLANK was especially memorable and delicious with a terrific wait staff.

One of the best vacations that we have had in a long time. Maya Villa was extraordinary. Room was awesome with full kitchen. Stayed in villa 414. with 2 bedroom and bath. Exceptional maid service from Marlene. Reception staff was great! We loved Tamara and Fernanda as they were a great help to us for details regarding the facility. Also our security staff was wonderful at our condo especially Aaron!
Restaurants were great. Love the Imprevist and their entire staff both waiters,named Carlos and Emerson went well out of their way to make us feel at . Concierge handles round trip transportation service but needs better communication with guests/pricing. Also they arrived late on our departure transport service.
All in all it was a fine trip and we were treated wonderfully by all. We will be back!

I highly recommend staying at the May Villa Condo Hotel & Beach Club. The Condo staff is wonderful! We checked in and received all helpful information from Tamara! Wilbert was always at the entrance with a huge smile and "HOLA!". Manuel booked our excursions and we loved every minute of them!
The Condo exceeded our expectation! We stayed in the exclusive 3 bedroom 4 bath suite, with amazing roof top deck. Just perfect for 3 couples.
I highly recommend this place for your Playa Del Carmen vacation! Close to everything!

Our family stayed at Maya Villa this past week and it really exceed our expectations. This exclusive 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo was tastefully decorated and was outstanding. The property is perfectly located within a block of 5th avenue. The Indigo Beach club staff did an excellent job and made us feel right at home. Their service is superior and always there to answer a question, etc. We ate at The Plank and Imprevist restaurants as well. These were the two best restaurants that we ate at the entire trip. From the beginning of our stay in which the staff at the check in desk explained and showed us to the condo, to the last day on check out we were impressed by the service and staff at this vacation rental/ We would definately recommend this to anyone who wants to vacation in Playa Del Carmen.
