Margaritas II is a beautiful upscale condo development located 4 short blocks from Playa del Carmen's famous 5th Avenue in the urbane part of town known as 'Little Italy'. And it is only one more block to its world famous white sand beaches. This premium property is a perfect place either for families or a small group who want to indulge in the sophisticated international ambiance of Playa del Carmen but who prefer the intimacy of a self catered apartment to the impersonality of hotel service. Our condo development is extremely well cared for: it has an on-site cleaning staff as well as 24 hour security staff (and electronic gate). The grounds are beautifully landscaped with palm trees and other tropical flowering plants. The two 50 foot pools, which are surrounded by grass.

And it is only one more block to its world famous white sand beaches. This premium property is a perfect place either for families or a small group who want to indulge in the sophisticated international ambiance of Playa del Carmen but who prefer the intimacy of a self catered apartment to the impersonality of hotel service. Our condo development is extremely well cared for: it has an on-site cleaning staff as well as 24 hour security staff (and electronic gate). The grounds are beautifully landscaped with palm trees and other tropical flowering plants. The two 50 foot pools, which are surrounded by grass. They are 5' deep at one end and have kids wading style pools at the other. Community lounge chairs surround the pools. Our particular unit is ideally located in the quiet side of the complex above the pool on the second floor away from the entrance gate or street traffic. The balcony is perfect for lounging and letting the day drift away...We have furnished our condo beautifully in an elegant but urban contemporary style which includes imported Italian sofa and beds, a custom sofa in the living room, pillow top mattresses on the queen size beds, elegant draperies, area carpets and original art from local and international artists. Recently renovated, all cabinetry and interior doors - indeed all woodwork - are in espresso brown, as is the imported Italian furniture throughout. The environment we have created is sophisticated and relaxing. We think our condo offers much more than the average vacation rental property, from a custom media center in living area which includes a 40 inch 1080 HD TV in the living room (including a Blue Ray player) and satellite TV, to a Nintendo Wii in one bedroom, to bathrooms with walk-in showers, to built-in custom closets in the two very large bedrooms, to granite countertops in the kitchen and numerous small appliances including an espresso coffee pot. Very practical but also very lovely!

Interaction with guestsWe are not residents in Playa del Carmen but come to our condo one or two months every year. We decided to rent it out as it stands empty for the other ten months. As such , any contact between us and our guests is limited to the initial rental emails. However, we have an off-site property manager in Playa who will be able to answer any questions or assist you if a real need arises. Claudio will check you in and out, point out the property rules (which are posted just inside the main gate and at the pool), and solve problems should they occur (such as the blender stopped working, etc.). He is not however a concierge so don’t expect him to arrange tours, etc..

Home away from Home
Wonderful condo with all the amenities of home. The private bathrooms located in each room is perfect when traveling with a friend or another couple. The unit is well maintained and stylish. And the location... 8-10minutes walk to the beach, the supermarket and fruit/veggie grocer are also just a few minutes walking distance. The pool was kept clean and the grounds/landscaping are well-kept too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Thanks so much for your kind review. We are glad to hear you like our condo and especially its location. We do too! It really has the best of both worlds: the nightly glam of Avenida Quinta and the daytime pleasures of lounging on the beach. And, yes, our condo itself as well as the whole building is very well cared for. In fact this summer they are re-tiling the pool to upgrade the courtyard ambiance. Hope you return soon!

Julies Thanks so much for the extra-positive review! We really appreciate it. We are glad you like the location because we too think it is almost perfect. Just a few minutes walk from just about everything you want! We didn't get to meet you in person but our property mamager, Claudio, tells us you were a GREAT renter. No trouble at all! So please come back and stay with us again. We would be more than happy to have you stay at our condo in the future. Hasta luego! Jack and Leona

Thank you Brenda. We are happy to hear that the condo was to your liking. We have tried to create a relaxing and attractive environment to spend your holidays in. Claudio, our property manager, is such a pleasant guy to deal with: smart, cooperative, helpful and willing to solve problems. We certainly were lucky to have hired him. And, as for your damage deposit being returned to you on the dated specified by the rental agreement: this is really something managed by Tripadvisor. They certainly take the difficulty out of the condo rental process. We are glad to be working with them. Again, thanks for the five stars and hope to see you at our condo the next time you visit Playa del Carmen. Jack

About the neighborhood
We are ideally located in one of the best locations in the tourist zone of Playa del Carmen, just a short walk to the excitement of 5th Avenue and another one block to the famous white sand beaches. We are located close to Mamitas Beach (the most famous of the beaches) with its upscale beach clubs where you can relax all day long or swim in the blue, blue ocean waters. This northern end of the beaches and of 5th Avenue, closest to our condo, is where the best restaurants in Playa are to be found. What is fantastic about Playa del Carmen though is that it is a very cosmopolitan cocktail of cultures residing side-by-side in a small, intimate upscale city: Mexican ambience + contemporary European sophistication + American energy. Our condo is ideally located to take advantage of all of these influences. We are located in the newer northern end of 5th Avenue known as 'Little Italy,' where Mexican and European cultural flavours mix. Margaritas II is located in close proximity to everything that Playa del Carmen has to offer: we enjoy going to the beach, dining out at fine restaurants, exploring this charming town, etc.. Near us are: a great variety of restaurants (Mexican, Italian, specialty coffee bistros, fresh seafood restaurants, organic smoothie bars, specialty fresh fruit shops, etc.ranging from high end to inexpensive). You will also find numerous day spas neighbourhood. For everyday shopping there is the Mega (the Mexican Walmart) where you can buy everything you need in one-stop shopping (including groceries, fresh fruit and produce and meat as well as clothing, drugs, household goods, etc.; an import food market carrying all manner of European products as well as a wide selection of organic food (they have an on-site restaurant too);k and even a real American Walmart four blocks away. Numerous taxis offer inexpensive fares everywhere both in and out of Playa del Carmen but, as Playa is a small city, most everyone walks to their destination.
Getting around
Playa is a walking city, so few people own cars. You can really walk the whole tourist zone without any trouble. If you need to get somewhere more quickly, taxis are everywhere. You can hail one right on the street and travel from point A to point B within the tourist zone for about only 35 pesos. But always ask the driver the fee before you get in! The Playa tourist zone is generally a very safe place but your own common sense should always apply in any foreign place you travel to. Further afield from Playa del Carmen a bit are Cancun (excitement!), Akumal (swim with wild sea turtles in the bay!), Tulum (Mayan ruins and hipster bars and hotels!), and the great Mayan pyramid of Chichen Itza. Take a luxury bus or rent a car.

Car not needed
How to get there
As you would expect travelling anywhere outside of your home country, addresses are a bit different in Mexico. At the Cancun airport, you have three options to get to Playa and our condo: 1. After exiting the arrival hall to the outdoors, you can take a private taxi. It will be approximately $US 80.00 per vehicle, not per person. You will see signs, or taxi agents who will assist you. We take private taxis occasionally. 2. The same as #1 but take a shared taxi. You will pay per person as the van will have 6 (?) people in it total. It will take a bit longer because it will stop at various hotels, etc. to drop people off. I do not know the price. We take shared taxis occassionally. Both of these taxi methods are easy and trouble free as Cancun is all about the ease of the tourist. Tickets for both of these taxis are purchased in the exit hall (after exiting the luggage pickup area) at any of the counters that state 'Taxi.' All counters charge the same price. Cash or credit accepted. 3. Bus. Mexico has great luxury tourist buses that are clean and safe. In Yucatan state, they are called 'A-D-O' buses. You buy the tickets outside at the far end of the arrivals building. Look for the agents in red shirts. You might wait 20 minutes or so but the buses are regular. The Playa del Carmen buses go to the main downtown bus station. Directly outside the bus station is 5th Avenue, which is the main tourist street in Playa; across the park you will see the blue blue ocean; and on the side street at the corner is the local taxi stand. There is a queue for the taxis. These white taxis are about 70 Mexican pesos ($70.00 MX) from this particular taxi stand although the distance to our condo is not far. (These taxis can be hailed in the street anywhere in Playa and should usually cost $30.00MX anywhere in the central zone. However, in Playa most people walk everywhere.) If we take the bus from the airport, we always take the taxi from here to our condo as it is slightly too far to walk with luggage. Taxis are cash only. An ATM can be found at the airport arrival hall or everywhere in Playa. The address of our condo to give any taxi driver: Calle 25 y Avenida 24. Write it down on a piece of paper and just show that to the driver. This is an intersection. Our condo complex is 'Margaritas II' . It is the big white one on the southeast corner. Almost everyone in Playa who is not a tourist is in some way connected to the tourism industry. So almost everyone, but especially the taxi drivers, speaks some English. The official address of our condo in Playa del Carmen is: Margaritas 2, B208 Avenida 25 y Calle 24 Playa Del Carmen, QO C.P. 77710-Cr-77711
