“Location and condo are wonderful.”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This was my wife and I's fifth visit to Casa Dorothea. The location is great. The condo is beautiful and the rooftop is to die for. It is our favorite place to hang out in the evening. We love it.

This is our second time staying at Casa Dorthea! We love this place, we would not want to stay anywhere else. Ron & Crystal made the booking process so easy! Vimax Condo Management were there for when we arrived and they were also helpful with any questions we may have. The Condo building is gated and once you walk in there is a common pool to share with a beautiful waterfall! When you go up to your third floor Condo there is Fresh Fruit on the table and some cold beverages in the fridge compliments of Ron & Crystal. There are 2 good size bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The condo is very neat and modern and feels like home! The added bonus of this Condo is the Private Roof Top Terrace, which has a cold water jacuzzi, a sitting area and Bar-B-Q area. There is also a toilet and shower on the roof top! Casa Dorathea is very centralized, 2 blocks to the beach 1 block to 5th ave and 2 blocks to Wal-Mart. We are already planning to go back next year!

“Wonderful stay at Casa Dorothea”
Reviewed December 29, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This lovely condo is everything you wish for during a vacation to Playa Del Carmen. Its proximity to Avenue 5, beach, ADO station and affordable restaurants made it the perfect choice for our family. Ron was wonderful from the minute we contacted him about the condo. We felt like we were meeting a friend in Playa. He provided us with a ton of useful information that saved us money and made our stay so much more enjoyable. The agency that manages the condo was also very prompt and ready to help us with anything we needed - fortunately everything was perfect. The top terrace was wonderful to relax, take a shower and chill with a cold beer.

This is a very affordable condo located close to Avenida Quinta and supermarkets, made even more distinguishable by its lovely roof-top patio. Four of us stayed there in December and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is clean, functional and comfortable. The owners, Ron and Crystal, are very responsive and helpful. We liked our stay there and largely agree with the commenters. But there are a few things to consider before renting it:
1. It is located close to a major entertainment street in the Playa. You can usually hear the partying at night if your windows are open.
2. It is located across from a church whose bells begin ringing at 7:30am. If you are a late sleeper, it will drive you nuts.
3. If you like to cook, you'll find that the kitchen is somewhat limited. The pots are fairly well worn and we had some difficulties using the stove. This is not a gourmet's kitchen. But for what they are charging, such expectations are unrealistic.
While we think that some of the commenters are a bit over-the-top in their praise, we don't know enough about other Playa accommodations to compare Casa Dolores. We think this is a decent value proposition and the roof-top patio really made it special. It'd be a great place to host parties.

Nice and clean two bed room apartment, One bed room you could make totally dark at night. AC everywhere (we did not feel the need to use it very much) and fans everywhere. Three bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen, washmachine, cable TV, celular phone and safety box. Beach toys, umbrellas etc.

Clean swimming pool at the bottom floor, our own roof terrace. Close to 5th avenue, the beach and everything.
Friendly staff guarding the complex and helpful staff at the office who takes care of the apartment. Easy to communicate with owners.
