  • 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.

  • The room is as listed with all mentioned amenities, just a couple of blocks away from the main tourist area of playa del carmen and a short walk to the beach. My stay was very relaxing and calm and I could find transportation to all my planned activities easily. Perfect place to hide away from the noise and bustle of playa.

  • Had a great stay at the Croc Condos. Melissa (and Monice) have been very helpful and prompt with queries. The rooms are basic, but represent good value. It's a good location just out from the main drag. Good roof terrace - nice for parties and a nice ambience. Convenience store across the road and close to the beach. I would happily stay there again

  • it was very pleasant to be at this place, over there I met wonderful people, all of them travelers and lovers of playa such I do know. I also went to another places such as tulum and I discover why its better to be a bit further from downtown, if you rent something around those nice spots in the city probably you will finish in your apartment trying to sleep and the rest of the world in from of your windows fighting to keep the party on!! so stay in this place, never pay for taxi (they take forever and charge you as hell for a ride), by a bottle of water and walk from street to street until you find 42 and 10 ave, you will sleep well and wake up early to keep enjoying the surroundings

  • My girlfriend and I came to Playa Del Carmen for a 6 night vacation and decided to try airbnb for the first time. We found this place and saw that there was a room available for $40 a night and decided that was a great deal so we booked a 6 night stay. Everything was just as described and the pictures provided were very helpful. This also ended up being our engagement celebration as I asked my girlfriend to marry me while we were there! The building is a couple of blocks from 5th Ave. where all the action is and it's at the north end which is the area that I like the best. Hadn't been to Playa in 6 years and SO much has changed so it was nice to be walking distance to the beach and to the good restaurants. The room we booked was the single with a queen bed and a bathroom on the ground floor in the back. We didn't expect the 4 Seasons but we did hope that it would be clean and "bug free" as my girlfriend says, and it was both of these things. Building felt secure since there is a gated entry that we locked each time we entered and left but the neighborhood felt safe to us. We also parked our rental car on the street easily. A little bit of noise from other people in the building coming and going but nothing intolerable. Our host was great and she was very easy to get a hold of and very accommodating. Overall, a great deal if you're looking to explore Playa on a budget!

Peace Corps Master Trainer, Owner of CrocCondos
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!
