This location was great!! Right outside the north end of the touristy area, 2 blocks off 5th. We had no issues retrieving our keys and getting inside. It's quiet and peaceful at night with an amazing view from the rooftop. We BBQ'd up there with some other guests which was a great time! There is an authentic taco stand around the corner with delicious $10 Pesos tacos! The place was clean, plenty big, good bathroom and shower and we always slept really well at night. Highly recommended, we will definitely stay here again.
Highlz recomended! Nice apartement in a pleasent neighbourhood. Quinta Avenida is just arround the corner. The beach is a 5minutes walk. The host is very friendly. I liked it a lot. Thanks!
It is not the traditional Airbnb where you meet the owner... they leave the key for you and you leave it back in the mailbox and you don't see the owner. The apt itself is comfy but the pictures of the inside are not the same as shown in the ad., the kitchen has all the appliances you may need to cook. Two things: we saw 2 really huge cockroaches. One was waiting for us in the bathroom when we got there and the other we saw it the next day next to the bed. There are ants in the bathroom as well and the sheets were not the cleanest. The odor of humidity seems to be really common in all Riviera Maya. There are 3 adorable cats that will get in your apt right away. We loved then, but be aware if you are alergic.
The location: it is close to the beach, just walk down 44 and you'll get to the "local" beach, less crowdy and smaller. The famous fith avenue is right there, but the main action is within 20 minutes walking. If raining you may want to take a cab for 30 pesos. There are local and cheaper restaurants in 46 avenue, really close.
Thanks for staying with us Desiree & James. Its unfortunate that you encountered 2 cockroaches during your stay. We fumigate every 3 months since we are in the tropics and there are lots of insects close to the ocean. You are right about the humidity! We received so much rain this year that even the bugs are looking to take cover. Thanks for bringing all this to our attention publicly!
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.
Nice condo, great location, good price and friendly owners!
Easy to get in touch with them, easy and clear answers. We would recommend for laid-back travellers!
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!

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!
