Interaction with Guests
I tend to leave guests alone so they can relax and enjoy there vacation, however i am always a call away or an email, if for some reason i am not around then Samuel my friend takes care of everything.
What can i say about my neighborhood, full of restaurants, in the heart of playa del carmen and just a few steps from the best beach in Playa del Carmen. ( Playa Mamitas )
walking, taxis are cheap, there is buses from the airport to playa del carmen or if you need a private transportation from the airport. We work with an amazing private transportation company and the total cost for a one way transportation up to 6 people is $75 usd (total not per person). If you are interested just let me know and I will send you an email from PayPal to make the payment. What I need from you is the information of your arrival flight. (Flight number, airline, coming from, arrival Time) if you want round trip transportation i will need also your departure flight info, so we can determine your pickup. A driver will be outside your terminal waiting for you with your name on a piece of paper. Company name is EL NOPAL.
If you are not interested IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU TELL ME ON TIME YOUR ARRIVAL TIME AT THE AIRPORT TO ESTIMATE YOUR ARRIVAL AT THE CONDO IN PLAYA DEL CARMEN. I need to know it to organize the check in!!

This place is beyond awesome! It's like one of the houses on "The Real World"...rooftop Jacuzzi, multiple balconies, exotic decorations. It was two blocks from the most popular beach in Playa. Downstairs was the main shopping/restaurant/bar&club street in the city. There were plenty of beach towels, snorkels, magazines for beach reading, ect.
The host met us early at the apartment, even though he didn't have to let us check-in early. Also, he let us sleep-in and check out late on our last day because no one had a reservation on the day we left.
If I had to suggest one improvement: many of the light blubs were oddly broken.
The apt is nicer than the photos can explain although it was quite hot.. As in much hotter than outside in the apt when we arrive home as the air conditioner turns on only when inside with the doors and windows closed. Our host was very nice, always available, and extremely helpful. We went to the restaurants and tours that were suggested and they were spot on. I like the location of the apt as it is close to everything. We had a great time!
Francesco's apartment is very spacious and comfortable! The location was what we enjoyed the most! Lots of good places to have breakfast and meals in general.
Good bars around and not noisy at all in the apartment! Claudio, who works with Francesco, was very helpful from the beginning til the end. He recommended local places for food as well as good beaches to go to! Great experience over all!
Great location with plenty to do. I have no complaints it was easy to communicate with Francisco the entire time.
We had trouble with the air conditioning and he sent a technician within the hour.
Would love to go back!
We stayed in Playa Del Carmen in condo Italy May 23 for 4 nights. Our host was easy to contact and responded quickly to a question we had about keys. Our favorite thing about the condo was Location! If you want to be right in the thick of things downtown, this is your place. We enjoyed all 3 balconies and loved the people watching, music and breeze. The location is very close to the beach and has great access to restaurants, shops and businesses. We had heard feedback that it could be loud at night and we did not find this to be true. We appreciated the designated parking space for our rental car because parking on the street would have been difficult. We called our host the day before checkout and asked to check out late and were told that that was just fine! Great service, condo as advertised and we would go back in a heartbeat.
Condo Italy was exactly as described, very spacious and in a perfect location for going to the best beach in Playa and being close to all the night life yet at enough away that you didn't have to listen to it till 6am
Francesco was very good to bring items that were missing from the condo. He is incredibly friendly and welcoming. We used allot of his recommendations for food and also his offer to arrange transportation for us to and from the airport.
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay Francesco
