Beautiful 2-bedroom/2-bath condo centrally located near beach, 5th Ave, Ferry to Cozumel and so much more. This rental was clean, modern and so convenient. Maid service was efficient and we really appreciated the water supply being provided. Issue with the air-conditioner was quickly dealt with by hotel maintenance. On-premise security added peace of mind. Would (and hopefully will) definitely book again. (Unit 216)

Steps from beach, steps from 5th Ave, but yet quiet and beautiful! Exactly what we were looking for. Extremely friendly staff, discounts at multiple restaurants, couldn't have asked for better. Even a welcome bottle of wine, complimentary, for the occasion. Wow.

Breezy, winding pathways surrounded by lush tropical florals and plants lead to charming, airy units. Pool area makes for easy relaxing or a splash in the water. Units are comfortable, light-filled, and decorated with the tropics in mind. Kitchen area has all the necessities for eat-in dining with plenty of space for lounging or reading. Bedrooms and bathrooms continue the tropical theme. Beach and shopping five minutes away.

Porto Playa is the perfect location for a relaxing getaway in Mexico. The location is fantastic. The beach, restaurants, and shops are all within a few blocks walking distance. My family stayed in the corner penthouse suite. It was a great fit for three couples. We each had our own spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. The rooftop "Crow's Nest" was a sanctuary complete with a grill, hot tub, and shaded seating area with great views. I also appreciated that the unit was extremely quiet and squeaky clean thanks to Esmerelda, the housekeeper. I hope we can make this an annual trip!

This was our second stay at Porto Playa unit 216 in as many years. Our vacation was perfect. The front desk staff was great, always available. The housekeeper, Esmerelda, did a fantastic job keeping our unit orderly and making the stress of dirty dishes, etc an afterthought. The pool at the hotel has two levels and is very relaxing. Porto Playa is one block away from the sandy beach with turquoise waters. We used the beach chairs at El Taj (a related condo hotels property) each day and took advantage of the $20, 70-minute massages (ask for Maria!) steps down the beach. Once again, a great stay with absolutely no complaints. We can't wait to do it all over again next year!

Porto Playa has a prime location, near to the beach and near to the storied 5th Avenue. One block walk to fun in the sun for the daytime, and similarly easy walk to 5th avenue for dinner bistros, shopping, gelato tasting, sports bars, or just strolling. The condo's setting is a tropical paradise. The lush vegetation offers seclusion for those desiring privacy. There are 2 big pools which we most often had to ourselves. The security guards/ valets were very courteous, helpful, and professional. The condo itself is very tastefully decorated, and has a great patio that we used every afternoon for our Happy Hour. The condo was equiped with everything needed for our stay. Beds are very comfortable. Esmeralda provided maid service, and worked her magic around our schedule. Front desk girls, Anna & Dulce, were friendly and helpful.

Porto Playa's draw for me is in the details. The spacious master bedroom in our unit had its own little outdoor seating area, surrounded by lush palms and flowering tropical plants. Bathrooms were beautifully furnished with huge walk-in showers. Shuttered closets and cabinetry made the unit casual but elegant and inviting. Excellent variety of seating inside and out. Outstanding balcony views of the swimming pool below and the sea beyond. Quiet, private, wonderful hospitality, understated elegance--I will return again and again to Porto Playa.

Just returned from a girlfriend getaway to Playa Del Carmen. We stayed, again, at Porto Playa, unit 216. Never disappointed, always impressed with the ease of check-in, the assistance of getting our bags to our room and the smiling faces that greet you. Over the years the common area has become more lush. You feel like you are in a tropical paradise. We so enjoyed having our coffee every morning on the balcony overlooking the pool and winding down every evening with a glass of wine and listening to the sounds of the waterfall. The Indigo Beach Club is located ocean front, the water is blue and inviting. The food they serve there is great , especially the strawberry margarita's!!! If you have the time try the Plank Restaurant located on the property. The brunch was excellent, especially the seafood tower!!! Shopping is great on 5th Avenue but don't forget about the little pewter/pottery shop a block away. Great buys! Also be adventurous and try the restaurants off 5th Avenue....Nau has the best seafood! Soooo looking forward to returning. I would highly recommend!!!

My experience renting this apartment was fantastic. There are two main points to share: the owner - very attentive - and the apartment - comfortable, in a silent street which is close to amazing restaurants. First, I would emphasize the manager's polite, honest and responsible behavior. Karl did everything he could so my family could enjoy the most of our time in Playa del Carmen. He transfered us in and out, took us to a small tour in the neighborhood and recommended a very good company to do Tours. On 12/30/2014, there was no water in various locations of the city, including the apartment region (New Year's Eve attract a lot of people to Playa). Even if in a situation seemingly out of his control as condo owner, Karl brought a water truck so we could shower and rest after a long tour in Maya Ruins. Every day, he kept asking if we needed anything else via whatsapp. As I said, Karl is very attentive. Finally, I must emphasize that the apartment seen in the pictures fully reflect reality. There are no tricks. Good towels, linens, kitchen gadgets, sound system (embedded in the couch), redundant internet link (if wi-fi fails, Karl leaves a 3G available iPhone that shares the connection with other devices). It's confortable, safe, silent. Awesome location at a very good price. Our stay was in the New Year's Eve period. The years came for us on the roof of the building, where there is a pool with 360 view to Playa's beach and Cozumel island. Spending just one week was not enough, since there a lot of places to visit and you really don't have to care about anything. We intend to return and stay in the same apartment as long as Karl remains there to ensure that we will have a good experience.

We stayed at Porto Playa for 2 weeks, everything was perfect. Location was very convinient close to shopping but avay from all the noice. They keep the place very clean, and the staff i very helpfull and friendly. At the very north end of 5th ave. we by accident found the best mexican food ever, it's a little place (el güero), not fancy but super food at a very good price, belive me its worth the walk.
