  • Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Playa del Carmen. The room was perfect, the beach is practically outside your door, and you can walk to hundreds of restaurants and bars. Marielle is amazing and works with you to make your stay perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

  • The place was nice, you pay for what you get. It is not really a BnB is 100% rental vacation property; there isn't a personal touch or an interaction with the host, and the workers don't know really the host. Enjoyed the location and the proximity of the beach. I would consider it, if I would go back.

  • La verdad es que es una opción perfecta si quieres pasar unos días en playa del carmen alejado del alboroto hotelero. La playa que tiene está muy bien y en 15 minutos andando puedes coger las van que te llevan a cualquier lado.

    La casa está muy bien, pequeñita pero con todo lo necesario.

    Todo el mundo fue muy amable, solo un poco de descoordinación a la llegada, pero cuando sevsolucionó todo fue sobre ruedas.

  • Le studio est idéalement situé , à quelques minutes à pieds de la 5ème avenue et pourtant très calme!
    La plage juste à côté est jolie et tranquille par rapport au reste de Playa del Carmen.
    Marielle est très à l'écoute et Carlos très gentil et serviable!! Il nous a beaucoup aidé lors de notre séjour.
    La piscine est agréable et le patio devant le studio est idéal pour déjeuner, diner ou petit déjeuner...
    La cuisine est très petite mais le studio est parfait pour quelques jours à Playa.

  • "Where to start? Yes, this location is quiet and secure. The 5th avenue is also a quick walk away. The beach is less than 3 minutes away and you can easily find shade in a less crowded part of town. Located between the main dock to Cozumel and the stretch of resorts of Playacar Fase 2, Playacar Fase 1 is the best place to spend a quiet day at the beach. We also experienced the other side of town (Mamita's Beach Club) and the beach is noisy, crowded and crazy with tourists. The Xaguar property itself is overgrown and not well-maintained. Dead leaves covering the ground, garbage that didn't move all week. The pool was cloudy when we got there. The size of this unit is definitely advertise wrong. It's nowhere near 540sq ft. Cut this by half. Our main issues were with the studio cleanness. The only access door to the room is through the patio/sliding door. The railing was so stuck that my mother couldn't open the door by herself. Our lock broke the first day but with Marielle's help, Amir was quick to fix it. The beige curtains inside the room were filthy grey. The dishes had an old layer of dust stuck to them. We didn't even have a pot to boil water. We had to ask for the toaster, and Dalia (the maid) got us one. There was dried blood on my night stand that I had to scrub off with a spoon. The lights over the bed had protective plastic coverings that were grey with dust, and only 1 light bulb between the 2. The bathroom sink and window still in the shower were covered with mold. The shower head was held together with electric tape. I have pictures to prove it too. I'm confused about the other reviews. Were we at the same place?"

    Response from Marielle:

    Despite our staff's daily visits to the studio, Gisele kept reassuring us that everything was ok, which leaves us deeply surprise to see this review. Rather than letting us about those discomforts, which could have been address, from day 1 from the very minute she checked in, the guest documented those discomforts via pictures to report them in this review. It's a shame, as we are on standby 24/7, to ensure our tenants have the most-hassle free vacations. The studio's size is accurately advertised, as the size includes the interior and the patio. Though the pool is cleaned on a daily basis, the studio is surrounded with green areas, namely, lots of trees, and we can therefore not stop the leaves from the trees to fall into the pool. Maid service is provided every other day. Guests as responsible to take place their garbage outside by the entrance door every morning, as an indicator to have the trash bag changed, as indicated upon check in.

  • La respuesta de MArielle fue rápida y oportuna, el studio tiene las condiciones como se describen, la atención de Carlos Y Amir ráida y atenta todo el tiempo.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Studio Xaguar. The location was perfect, the accommodations were perfect and the staff (Carlos) was very warm and friendly. We look forward to returning in the future.

  • Le suivi par courriel fait par Marielle était excellent et même si elle n'était pas présente pour nous recevoir , les personnes sur place étaient accueillants et serviables . Endroit propre et bien entretenu .
    Je répète ce que d'autres ont mentionné mais voilà : le plus de ce studio est son emplacement . Magnifique plage à proximité . Tranquillité et sécurité. La Quinta à 15 minutes de marche par la plage ou les rues parallèles . Des vélos nous ont été prêtés et même s'ils n'étaient pas récents , ils ont été bien commodes pour nos courses et sorties dans la ville même . Pour un achat de hamacs de la meilleure des qualités et à bon prix comparé aux boutiques de la Quinta , prenez la peine de vous rendre sur la 30e avenue entre calle 50 et 52 . La Casa Las Hamacas .
    Mes 2 suggestions de bons restos à prix doux : El Fogon et Carboncitos .

  • Studio Xaguar is a great place to spend a nice, quiet, romantic vacation in Playa Del Carmen. The setting is beautiful and truly steps from the beach. It is located in private neighborhood, I felt very safe at all times. The beach near the studio is perfect! It's a lot less crowded than the areas in front of the small resorts to either side so that was great. We didn't get a chance to meet Marielle but Carlos is a super nice guy and had some good recommendation (one of which was to eat at El Fogon which was also the best tip we got it is amazing!!) Our studio was clean and (website hidden) is also walking distance from 5th ave and the bus station (unless you have a lot of luggage). We wish we would have known this because we didn't know where we were when we arrived and ended up taking a taxi for 70 pesos. Not bad, but when we got our bearings later we realized we could have arrived very easily on foot. If you plan ahead I'm sure you can get directions from Marielle. If you choose Studio Xaguar you will not be dissapointed, It was a wonderful place to call home for our stay in PDC.
