  • Croc Condos is by far my favorite place to stay in Playa del Carmen! I am a repeat guest and Melissa and Monica are sure to make my stay comfortable and easy every time! Accommodations are economical and have everything you need ! Great for a working holiday or an extended stay - highly recommended!

    Thanks Jennifer, we LOVE our repeat guests and do our best to provide the necessities. See you sooner than later chica!

  • Without a doubt, I great place to stay for a diver who wasn't in P.D.C. to enjoy the nightlife on the Fifth Av. That's the only downside really, being far from the action ( and maybe the dogs barking all night long, but put ear plugs and you will be fine). But you should know a taxi to go to the heart of the 5th cost only 25 pesos (2$US),
    or if you like walking and eating a gelato at the same time, you can count a 25 min walk. It's not that bad, but make sure you do not forget anything behind you. Otherwise, the place itself ( I was leaving in the Penthouse ) was amazing ( and the price too ! ). I could have leave there for ever !
    The Penthouse is very well decorated, lots wood,
    with a mezzanine, a kitchen, two bathroom...
    The only thing I could have complain for was the T.V., who didn't work. But two days after my arrival, without me asking for anything, I came back from diving and found a brand new flatscreen
    T.V. . I've got to say I appreciated that a lot, being a lazy diver who didn't want to go out dancing.
    As for the kitchen, you have everything you need to cook a great meal. Having friends in la Playa, we had a lot more fun there then any restaurants.
    I could go on forever to say how much I loved that place. But I'll stop right now, cause I dont want to fight next year when I will make an another reservation for another great stay ! Believe me, you can go there without any hesitation. Bon voyage !

    Thanks Yanick! We appreciate your business and hope you come back and stay again. We also upgraded the tv so thanks for letting us know.

  • I had a wonderful time and would recommend croc condos! I was in Apt 9 and it had fabulous wifi and a perfect kitchen. The two bathrooms was fabulous as well. The location was great because it was slightly off the tourist overload but close enough to walk everywhere. The hot/cold water was a little finicky but not something that would keep me from coming back. Looking forward to returning to CrocCondos again :)

    Response from Melissa:

    Thanks MJ! We would love to host you again. We love hosting guests that prefer visiting Mexico and experiencing a little bit of the local culture. Thanks.

  • My continued and extended stay at Croc Condos has not disappointed! Melissa & Monica have gone above and beyond as hosts and are always at the ready whenever an issue or question arises. They even offered to 'house' one of my suitcases while I am in Europe for a few weeks so that I wouldn't have to pay extra baggage fees to tote it around :) I plan to return again in June and enjoy more of their fantastic condo!

Northern Arizona University
Peace Corps Master Trainer, Owner of CrocCondos
I am originally from Chicago, graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from Northern Arizona University, a course of study that included two years in Newcastle Australia. I spent four years working for the U.S. Peace Corps in Bolivia where I assisted in the organization of several small communities, helping to develop a thriving business in beekeeping, honey procurement and merchandizing. After traveling extensively in South America, I found myself in Playa del Carmen where I decided to dedicate years to develop CrocCondos. I went back to the US to acquire a Masters Degree in Business Administration to improve my managerial and customer service skills. My quest for knowledge and new experiences is endless and I am committed to community development through participation in workshops and events such as Taste of Playa & Think Green Eco Expo. I love to travel and have visited around 40+ countries in my last 10 years of travel. I have stayed in cheap dorms to amazing 5 star hotels in all different cultures and landscapes. I enjoy the simple things in life and my favorite thing is hosting new people that are excited to explore the Riviera Maya. We are always open to suggestions about how to improve our accommodations, but try to keep costs for guests economical. We have amazing staff members that work with me and are just as excited as I am to host you. We invite you to see for yourself what the magical Riviera Maya holds!
