Real Mexican apartment, very nice owners Gloria and David. When we had a problem with a shower, they fixed it immediately. We felt there very safe. Neighbourhood is peaceful , 10 min from the beach and at the end of 5 th av. Cheap supermarkets close to this apartment. We highly recommend.
Gloria and her husband are absolutely charming!! Apartment is clean and comfortable, perfect for 4 people. Great kitchen will all cooking utencils. The place is quite far away from the beach (15 min walk to the first beach which is not very nice). There are two big supermarkets nearby so it's easy to do shopping
Muchas gracias Agata si tienes razón no se por que las playas tenían mucho sargazo no se veían bien y con mucho respeto por tu comentario de lo lejos de la playa para nosotros 15 minutos caminando es cerca recuerda que somos MEXICANOS locales ,en las playas están los Hoteles y los negocios de extranjeros .saludos .
Nuestra estancia en el departamento de Gloria fue excelente todo lo que buscábamos como experiencia fuera de un hotel lo obtuvimos en este lugar. El barrio es muy tranquilo y esta muy cerca de la playa ademas que hay muchos lugares con comida típica de la región y a excelentes precios, la atención de Gloria y su esposo fue genial ya que en todo momento nos brindaron atención, ayuda y consejos a cerca de los lugares que hay en la Riviera Maya para conocer. todo lo que viene en las fotos del departamento es real ni mas ni menos por nuestra parte nos acomodo a la perfección.
Gloria is very sweet and she helped us get around during our stay. Although the place is a bit old (hot showers were a bit tough to get for all 4 people staying) its very cozy. Breakfast is not included but Gloria invited us to join her for coffee in the morning. Theres a few dogs in the neighborhood and one of our friends had a tough time sleeping through their barking in the morning, although I was able to tune it out. Best of all the place is affordable and its not too hard to get around, with bus stations nearby as well as supermarkets and restaurants. The terrace and hammock are really nice, especially at night. Theres also other separate rooms available if you are not looking for a full apartment.
Thanks again Gloria!
Gloria was a fantastic host. Her apartment was clean and had lots of lovely home comforts. Full kitchen and a coffee maker. The terrace was great in the evening and to catch the sun during the day. Just 10 minutes walk from 5th avenue and round the corner from a fully stocked super market. I would highly recommend the apartment and Gloria as a host. She was really welcoming and made us feel like one of the family. Muchos Gracias Gloria!!
Gloria seemed friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Gloria lives right underneath the rented appartment and was always there to greet us when we came home which at some point felt like surveillance.
The appartment was very basic but clean at first glance. We soon noted some major defects, however. The entire place smelled musty and mildewy and all our clothes reeked within hours. The dishes in the kitchen were dirty and there were dead bugs in a bowl.
When we first wanted to take a shower we noted that the shower head was so calcified that literally no water came out, washing our hair was impossible. We had to buy vinegar to decalcify over night. Still there was no water pressure. We had to use water from a bucket to make the toilet flush properly. On the second day the toilet handle broke completely and wouldn't flush at all. On two seperate days the water pump broke down and we had no running water at all. When we complained about this Gloria remained friendly and tried to help but couldn't fix it right away.
Apparently on our last day one of the moskito screens broke down even though we handled everything carefully and with respect. Even though the entire place was quite obviously in a run down state Gloria tried to blame the broken moskito screen and toilet handle on us and tried to charge it on us. This really upset me. It is outrageous to rent out a place in a desolate condition and then try to blame it all on the guests.
I wasn't going to write a bad review because I have lived in Mexico and I know the sanitary conditions are different than in Europe but I can't accept that these defects are blamed on me and it is even worse to try to have me pay for it when I have been nothing but patient and understanding.
The place is a dump with a host who is superficially friendly but only seeking profit.
We enjoyed our stay in Playa del Carmen. The apartment worked out very well for our family of four. It is located in town, a long walk from the tourist area and beaches, but it was doable and best of all: affordable. We felt comfortable and safe. Gloria and David are welcoming hosts! Someone was always home to greet you and answer questions. They also rent out a few other rooms, which were occupied by friendly people during our stay. The apartment was a perfect home base from which to venture out. We visited the beach, Xcaret, Xplor, & Akumal Bay. In the evenings, the kids enjoyed wifi access. One downside would be the very weak water pressure in the shower. We can totally recommend a nearby restaurant, La Bamba Jarocha, for their amazing paella loaded with seafood! I would return again.
