  • Croc Condos is an awesome deal! I spent 2 weeks there as a solo traveller and made friends right away with my neighbors. For a second time to Playa I didn't need to be in the center of the action so this is the perfect spot about a 10-15 minute walk to central 5th Avenue. I'll definitely stay again. Great wifi, air conditioning and room.

  • This is a great apartment and the third of which I have stayed in at Croc Condos! The apt is spacious and has all amenities you could require for a short or extended stay! The double bathrooms is an added bonus as well! I am a repeat guest and would highly recommend any of the apartments in Croc Condos! You will not be disappointed!

  • We really enjoyed our stay! If you are looking for a place that is not super touristy, but also not in the middle of nowhere....this is perfect! It is located a few blocks from the hustle and bustle and its an easy walk to beautiful beaches....no joke!

    The room feels very safe and it is nice and quiet! The room was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed to feel at home. There is a cute roof top area that looks over the city where you can lounge and cook too. I would definitely come back and stay at the Croc Condos!

  • It was a very basic apartment but enough for our stay. The night we arrived we did not find anyone to greet us, but instead we had to find the key in a letterbox and follow some instructions.

    The lock could not open with the code which was given to us so we had to call Melissa and she told us that probably the keys were jamming the lock to open. Problem was solved and then we had to figure out how to open our apartment door which did not have a proper key hole as we know it, but it had just a hole in the door aluminium where the key had to be entered.

    Apart from this incident we had a decent stay with a very basic apartment and probably not worth the money. However what bothered us was that no one was there to greet us during our WHOLE stay.

  • Croc Condos is in a great location. It's a quick walk to the beach, and just far enough away from the very touristy area of playa. The One bed room apartment has plenty of room, and even has 2 bathrooms!

About
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!
