Guillaume and Omar have created paradise here in Playa del Carmen! The ambience, staff and setting are one of a kind! As hosts, they were nothing but gentlemen, and their staff graced us with constant smiles. We will be back very soon! The accommodation was so unique and charming with all creature comforts and character in spades! It is a short stroll to the beach, restaurants, cafes, taxi's, shops - basically everything you need. Also baby ducks a chicken and two dogs made the experience even more magical!
Accommodation is in a great location just off 5th avenue and within a 3 minute walk of the beach. It's connected to a small outdoor restaurant which served nice breakfasts (didn't order lunch or dinner here so can't comment on that but the menu did look good!)
The house itself is very spacious and spread over 3 floors and the decor is 'shabby chic' There is no A/C so it does get quite hot on the top floor but there are plenty of fans dotted about.
It's set in a sort of jungle themed garden with a small pool (this was empty though, perhaps for maintenance) which looked good at night with the candles although I should add that it's a haven for mosquitoes which made it virtually unusable after dark. The owner is well aware of this though and actively tries to reduce the problem although more effort should be put into protecting the indoor areas as we were all bitten a lot whilst sleeping. Come prepared and you'll be fine though!
The host who met us and checked us in was very knowledgeable about the area and was always around to answer any questions we may have had. Overall, we had a good experience here as it represented excellent value for money and is in a great spot in Playa del Carmen.
The home was incredible, like nothing we've ever seen or stayed in. Exactly the easy it looks in the pictures! It is a couple minute was from the beach and right around the corner from 5th avenue. The restaurant on the property was the best food we had while staying in playa, everything was super fresh!
Guillaume was the perfect host- available, accommodating (brought up a playpen for the baby) and amiable. The three story cabana was enormous and really cool! The property is beautiful and of course the location is perfect in the best part of Playa. Regina the restaurant on site was also delicious!
Can't wait to return and I recommend Shalala highly.
Great stay, we were greeted on arrival with margaritas for everyone and location was perfect for strolling to town. Mosquitos were the only issue, but Shalala had done its best and it was high season. Would stay again!
The place was really cool and good for a good sized family. I liked the outdoor space and Omar was very responsive with me. The location was good. Just about 150 meters from the beach and close to the restaurants/bars. There was a pool, but it was under some trees so it filled with leaves really quick. For a place that size, I was surprised it didn't have a full kitchen, but the advertisement was correct, it comes with a fridge, plates, and coffee maker.
Shalala was the first place my wife and I had ever stayed in mexico, and after a 2 week vacation through Playa Del Carmen and Tulum at 4 different places, I can say, Shalala was an absolute perfect introduction to the Mayan Riveria. Nestled in a little jungle within the city, it was home and sanctuary after beach swimming, site seeing, and partying in this awesome little city! Management was super personable and accommodating, and security friendly and attentive (not that I once felt we needed it!) There's a little gem of a restaurant adjacent to the property called Fonda Regina and it is without exaggeration, amazing. I don't want to spoil anything here for newcomers ... but really, I was blown away by the magic of the Shalala... All in all, the minor imperfections were what made it all so perfect. It felt like Mexico, it was Mexico...honestly, I'm a bit reluctant to give such high praise for fear it'll get over exploited. I dont want to detail specifics either, it's nice to be surprised! Keep in kind, this place is made for those who love the simplicity of nature.

We are two laid back, friendly and educated guys living in Playa del Carmen for the last 6 years. We love to travel, spend time with our friends and meet new people. Playa del Carmen is the perfect place for that.
Riviera Maya is a great destination and we enjoy our time here going to the beach, visiting new places like ruins, trying new activities (do not hesitate to ask for any advice on what to do or where to go), hanging out with friends, having a drink in a cool bar ( you will find every kind of music and ambience in playa del carmen), ... our place is in the middle of all these options and is quite cool to enjoy it.
We recently got the unexpected opportunity to start our business in this unique place. Unique for its vegetation, its decoration, and the natural peaceful ambience. Managing and working here it is pure pleasure, we are professional of tourism and marketing, but we enjoy receiving people, looking forward of our guests, sharing about the fabulous Riviera Maya/Mexico and hear stories/experiences from all over the world.
well, if any details or info are missing do not hesitate to contact us, hope to see you soon
