Interaction with Guests
I tend to leave guests alone so they can relax and enjoy their vacation, however i am always a call away or an email, if for some reason i am not around then Claudio or Samuel my property managers takes care of everything. There info will be given to you once you book. If for some reason something is not working in the condo we fix it wright away.
The neighborhood is one of the most wanted by locals, its just a 4 blocks from playa mamitas and only 2 blocks from 5th avenue. Its great because its close enough to 5th but with out the noise of 5th avenue.
in-front of the home there is a small corner store and a laundry place and around the corner a few coffee places. Playa del carmen if full of restaurants and i will send you a list of my favorites when you book the place. You can see from all my reviews that the place is fantastic and the price even better.
From Cancun Airport it takes just under 1 hour. There is plenty of taxis in playa del carmen and buses that take you around. If you need private transportation from the airport to playa we can arrange that for you, usually for a fee of 75 dollars for a private van up to 6 passengers.
Other Things to Note
AC will not work when windows are open or when the door to the bedrooms are open. To re-activate the AC you need to close the door to the bedroom, or/and close the window and press the AC BOT which is located next to the bed or in the room but you should see this because it has the AC BOT on it. And then by pressing the AC controls to the temperature desired. In some cases it may take 3 minutes for the system to restart.
This might be a bit of an inconvenience however the electric bill where becoming ridiculous from people going to the beach and leaving the AC on all day.
This condo only has AC in the 2 bedrooms not in the living room, there is 2 ceiling fans in the living room.
Donate old clothing - This one is very simple if you have space in your suitcase and you have clothing that you don't want or don't use anymore just bring it down with you and leave it in the condo when you leave and we will distribute it to people that need it. Same for non perishable food that you buy in Mexico any leftover's will be distributed.

IF YOU GO TO THE BEACH THE DAY OF CHECK OUT AND DON'T LEAVE BY 10AM, AN EXTRA DAY CHARGE WILL OCCUR AND YOUR THINGS WILL BE PLACED IN A SEPARATE CLOSET, YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE CONDO.
