  • Great location, One block from the beach and two block from 5th Avenue. The Condo has all you need. I hope I can return soon :).

  • I enjoyed a week in the condo with a friend. We could not have been more delighted. The apartment is clean and spacious with excellent facilities.
    The pool is always a must for me and there were always sun loungers available.
    The condo is a stone throw away from a white sand beach and 2 blocks from the 5th Avenue where you can find plenty of bars and restaurants.

    The apartments are secure and we felt very safe in the Playa.

    We had no issues at all, and Holly and Ulla made themselves available if I had any questions or requests. I found them very accommodating.

    I will certainly be returning to the playa and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

  • As other reviewers have highlighted, the Alizes condos are situated perfectly! It is indeed a short block from the ocean and two blocks from 5th street If you go North on 5th, there is a very nice well lit walking/jogging pathway that passes by the Paradesus and Grand Coral Resorts. If you head South on 5th, you will find numerous good restaurants around 38th avenue.

    The condos themselves are very secure with locked gated entry and a tourist police sub station right across the street. The pool area is also very nice and offers the opportunity to meet your fellow condo dwellers in the afternoons for some libations or interesting discussions.

    Holly's condo is well appointed with all the requirements for eating in if desired. That said, we did notice that the available beach chairs and umbrellas were in disrepair and need replacing. Holly was also very helpful and engaged to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. Overall, I would highly recommend her condo to anyone looking for a nice quiet and peaceful location for your trip to Playa.

    Response from Holly:

    Sam and Kaycee, thanks again for choosing my condo, for being such great guests and for making me aware of the chairs and umbrellas so that I could have them replaced today. Safe travels and hope to see you again in Playa soon!

  • Hi Holly,
    We had a fantastic time in Playa del Carmen!! We were back and forth to the Beach and all the shopping areas continuously. So convenient and safe. The location is fabulous.
    Any minor issues with the condo were dealt with quickly by Ulla. You are lucky to have her!! :)
    I'm confident to recommend this to anyone wanting to experience Playa del Carmen away from the clamor of the all-inclusives......
    Gracias!!

  • Amazing location! Great hosts, comfortable amenities, nice pool and wonderful condo neighbors. Access to the beach and 5th St. were very good and just off the beaten enough to be peaceful, without being too far from the action. A nice place that's priced appropriately! Enjoy your stay there with Holly and Ulla if you go!

  • I went down to Playa with a buddy and Holly's place was perfect. From the beginning Ulla and Holly we're easily accessible and Ulla went out of her way while we were in Playa to help with any issues that may have come up. It's a very short walk to the beach and close to 5th but far enough away so you can rest easy with your windows open. I plan on coming back again as this condo was great and offered all the amenities it promised up front. Thanks Holly and Ulla for a great stay! Also if you need travel to and from the airport Oscar was fabulous and a very kind gentleman, Just ask Ulla to help set this up.

  • This was the perfect place for us! Holly made everything so easy for us to organize. We were greeted by Ulla as soon as we arrived and she was so helpful and friendly. The apartment itself is very spacious and the location is just as good. We would definitely come back and stay here. Thank you Holly!

  • This was a nice home base for our family over the holidays. The beach is a quick one block walk, 5th ave is a 10 minute walk away. Be sure to check out Canibale Royal beach club (head to the beach and turn left to head north). The condo has everything you need, a/c, wifi, laundry. We felt safe in the condo complex. There is a nice pool area with palm trees and friendly residents. Catching a cab back to the Cancun airport was easy to do right outside, for 500 pesos.

    The unit is a few years old, but it was very clean. If your family only needs two bedrooms (ie not the sofa bed), I would recommend the condo!

  • Holly and Ulla are amazing. They were in contact with me all the time. The place is perfectly located: in a quite area and yet close to la Quinta Avenida. The apartment had everything I needed and I felt at home right away.

    I will definitely come back!

  • Hollys place is wonderfully located, just a block from the beach, and about 3 blocks from the main area of 5th street. We rented a car and parking was never an issue. Inside the apartment was exactly as pictured, a nice kitchen, living room, and 2 good sized bedrooms. The pool area was extremely nice for relaxing in the evening.

    The property manager was extremely available if needed, yet politely unintrusive, she was very fast to respond to any questions.

    My wife and I stayed with our two girls, and had a great time experiencing visiting Mexico, and at no time did we ever feel anything less then a welcomed guest.

    We would definitely recommend Holly's beautiful condo any time you are planning on visiting the Playa Del Carmen.

I write, spend time outdoors whenever possible and hope to perfect my headstand in yoga class and finish my novel this year, but find the novel's coming together faster than the headstand.
