My wife and I had an amazing trip to Playa del Carmen and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. It was such a unique experience to stay under a thatched roof tucked under the trees. The location was perfect. A couple short blocks to the beach and right off of the main drag (5th Ave.) at the less touristy end, which we appreciated. There were tons of great restaurant all around and shopping very close.
Omar was helpful and easy to communicate with and his staff was wonderful and very friendly.
Overall fantastic, we would definitely recommend.
Excelente opcion; nos encanto la atención, el lugar y la ubicación es perfecta...Gracias Omar.
This is a very cool place to stay and a great location. It's very safe and feels secluded but you are right in the middle of shopping and restaurants. There's a great breakfast place next door and the Regina that's attached has great food and Olla Cafe. The cabana was clean and the shower was very cool. The beach is just a block away. Everyone was very nice and helpful!
Our experiance here was unique to say the least. When we arrived we had a confused looking gentleman show us a 4 ft x 4 ft changing room with a bed and "said this is it". We protested and he then offered us another place on the property. There were mosquito nets on all of the beds but they did not help the bug problem much. We woke up eaten alive every morning. The kitchen was infested with huge ants and other bugs we could not identify, but needless to say it was unusable. On the second day the hot water stopped working, thus no more warm showers. After 3 nights we had had enough, and thankfully Omar had double booked where we were staying somehow and offered to put us up in a hotel next door. This was the best part of our stay by far. He graciously refunded one of our nights, but be warned that this place is basically a home-made tree house with poor plumbing, no windows and no air conditioning. It was close to the beach and the main strip, but other than that no real perks.
hi Sean, well I am very surprised that you never mentioned any of the above comments when we spoke face to face; you guys said you were happy and enjoying the place. We use mosquito nets on the beds and we havent had someone saying that they dont work but we will check on that. You also forgot to mention that when you arrived at midNight after your delayed flight we spoke and I told you that you were able to choose from two rooms that we had available that night, being the more expensive one where you chose to stay without getting charged extra. I am even surprised you mention the main strip which is distinguished for being one of the nice streets in a more upscale neighborhood in downtown having right infront of our property one of the most expensive condominiums in town.
À la Robinson Crusoe
Cuando un viajero que acaba de llegar de Europa entra por primera vez en Shalala, se halla ante un cuadro completamente inesperado. Aquí todo el paisaje es un inmenso invernadero rebosante, creado por la naturaleza misma, pero del cual ha tomado posesión el hombre, embelleciéndolo con preciosas cabañas. Un lugar donde esos sencillos detalles de arquitectura, adornados de un verdor perenne, sugieren un género de vida que nos persuade de que hemos retrocedido en el tiempo.
Gracias Guillaume & Omar por esta maravillosa estancia

Had the most amazing unforgettable experience! Omar and Gui have a such a wonderful place, it's Perfect. Location is amazing and the setup is surreal. One moment your in the luscious Jungle and as soon as you step out of the gates your mere steps from the beach and 5th street market surrounded by the most amazing restaurants and shopping markets!! I can't say enough about this wonderful place and guarantee a return. Already looking for dates to book my next return! Thank you for everything and the wonderful hospitality!!
Unfortunately when we first arrived at the hotel no one was there to let us in. Luckily we were able to grab a bit and a drink at the restaurant next door (which was wonderful) until someone arrived about forty minutes later. They ended up double booking our room so we weren't able to have the private cabana but were offered another room that was also very nice. Between no one being available for us to check-in upon arrival and the room mishap, we were a little disappointed when we first arrived. That being said, we had a great experience at the end of our trip. Once someone checked out of the room we had originally booked, the owner offered to move all of our stuff to the new space however we opted to stay where we were.
The property was lovely, in a great location and clean. Despite our small hiccups to start the trip, we would definitely stay here again -- it ended up being perfect and the owners were very nice and apologetic about the minor issues.

About the Host, Omar
Im a laid back, friendly and educated guy living in Playa del Carmen for the last 9 years. I love to travel, spend time with friends and meet new people. Playa del Carmen is the perfect place for that.
Riviera Maya is a great destination and I enjoy 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), ... the property is in the middle of all these options and is quite cool to enjoy it.
I got the unexpected opportunity to manage this unique place. Unique for its vegetation, its decoration, and the natural peaceful ambience. Managing and working here it is pure pleasure. I am a professional of tourism and marketing; I enjoy hosting people, looking forward of my 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 me, hope to see you soon
