My partner and I stayed at CrocConds for 1 month and it was perfect. Great location close to beach! Close walk to 5th Ave, cafes and restaurants. The room was a good size for the 2 of us and it was easy to cook our own food in the room or even the bbq on the roof. The 3 cats that live around the building were sweet too, if your a cat person :) Melissa was easy to get in contact with and extremely helpful. Defiantly would stay there again! Felt very at home :)
Comfortable, clean .. We didn't liked the place but thus has nothing to do with the studios. There were so much tourists.. We left earlier! But studio was clean and near to the beach
Croc Condos is a great deal. I stayed almost four months over the winter of (phone number hidden) and was pleased with the location and staff. Whenever i had a maintenance problem, it was promptly attended to.
Sometimes it could be noisy, sometimes quiet. Noisy especially for me since my unit was close to the street on the first floor and also because I was in my room working on my laptop 90% of the time. Other than neighborhood noises like dogs, cats, street vendor carts, construction and traffic, the neighbors (both local and croc guests) were quiet and respectful. After awhile i got used to the erratic noise levels and the pros of staying in the sunny Caribbean outweigh the noisy cons.
Would recommend and definitely stay at Croc Condos again.
We had a pleasant stay at the CrocCondos. We loved the location. 5th Avenue was just short stroll away and so was the beach. There is an Oxxo close by which sells water, beer and snacks. CrocCondos felt save and secure and the neighborhood is quiet. It was nice to have a rooftop where you can see the ocean and chill. The studio itself was basic but good enough for three days.
This was my first time in Playa del Carmen and the location of CrocCondos was perfect for enjoying the shops and restaurants on 5th Avenue as well as being a short walk to the beach. The room was simple but just fine, with a kitchenette and plenty of light. There was a quiet balcony for hanging out. Melissa kept in touch and gave great instructions about staying there. Thanks Melissa.
Had a great time at Croc!
Melissa has a great property, and it was a pleasure staying there and getting to know some of the neighbors.
Looking forward to getting back there and to Playa soon...
Me and my boyfriend, we have spent very nice time in Croc Condos.The location is in a good position only 5/10 min by walk to 5th avenue and to the beach.
Our Studio was simple but it had all that we needed for a vacation of 2 week. Melissa and Monica were very helpful with us.
We would be happy to stay there again and I highly recommend Croc Condos.

About the Host, Melissa
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!
