This place was just perfect if you are looking for all the essentials and dont want to spend so much. I really loved that it had wifi, hot water, and ac. and a clean bed. I felt safe and happy with the place we chose to stay. I didn't see Mel (the host) once but because there was no need to, especially when we were out most of the day. It was easy to find and the whole building was pleasant. i would stay here again.
Melissa was a great host, she was responsive, helpful, and friendly. The apartment was just what I needed: clean, comfortable, simple, and conveniently located!
El lugar es cómodo, se puede llagar rápido a las avenidas principales y sobre todo de la playa.
The location of CrocCondos is perfect. A bit away from the crazy night life but still close to everything you need. We had no single problem while communicating with Melissa, she replied immediately and was very kind with us. But there're some things i want to put your attention on. The room had a strong smell of cats, bed linen and towels looked not really fresh, water pressure in the shower was very low, the internet connection was very far from good (despite there were several networks) and i would say the studio # 7 needs to be renovated (know nothing about other rooms). But still there are a lot of advantages like hammock terrace, rooftop place with sunbeds, private territory, all the cooking facilities in the room and location-location-location.
Buen recibimiento y el cuarto estaba muy bien higienizado..
Teníamos wifi gratis y ropa blanca a disposición.
La cama no era muy confortable pero disponíamos de (website hidden). y las principales necesidades cubiertas.
La ubicación estaba dentro del circuito céntrico.
Buena relación precio calidad.
Lo mejor: wifi libre
Lo peor: la cama
el departamento nos resulto comodo, el barrio y la ubiocacion muy lindo. la unica recomendacion sería acomodar la presion del agua de la canilla del baño. salia muy poca agua y tbn nos sorprendio que no tenga una bacha donde lavar los utensillos de cocina. la pasamos muy bien y nos sentimos muy comodos. saludos
everything was fine!
not too far away from everything - but far enough to have a relaxed time...

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!
