Hola my names is Massimo and with my beautiful wife we manage the Condo 46.
We are an Italian couple who fell in love with this place ... Relax,sun, beach, beer and tequila.
I travelled with my parents in Riviera Maya and the apartment of Massimo was a perfect place to live during one week.
It's super confortable with every comodities that you need! You have a supermarket and other shops very close to the Condo!
Its not too far from the center (5-10 min by taxi).
Great experience, nice host, enough place for 3 people so... Go, you will not regret!
Thank you so much Massimo and see you soon!!
My girlfriend and I decided against staying at a resort this time around and couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. Though in many ways the space could be considered "Spartan", it was everything we needed.
For the uninitiated, the neighborhood may seem a big rough and impoverished but, you will find no problems walking at night, if you do, there are cabs everywhere.
Grocery stores and restaurants are just a short walk/drive away.
Staying here, you will get a stronger feel for the town which those at the resort miss out on - highly recommended!
siamo stati 12 giorni in questo condo 46 io e il mio moroso..
.. l' appartamento è molto carino!!in ottima posizione!!!!! massimo è una bella e brava persona si è sempre messo a nostra disposizione....che dire siamo stati molto bene!!!lo consiglio vivamente!!!!
Hermoso el departamento!! Todo nuevo y muy bien equipado.. Muy cómoda la ubicación ya que tranquilamente uno puede caminar a la 5 avenida o al mar, y no es lejos. Cerca además, hay muchos negocios como lavanderías, mercados y supermercados, por lo que uno no tiene que alejarse demasiado para comprar cosas. Massimo es una persona muy amable y si tienes un inconveniente lo soluciona en la inmediatez. EL edificio en sí es muy seguro.. Lo recomendamos y obviamente volveremos!!
The reservation was canceled 28 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Massimo was a great host and allowed us to store our luggage when we arrived prior to check in time and was very easy to reach via email when we had questions throughout our stay.
The condo itself was in a pretty building on the fourth floor. There are no elevators so guests should be aware that they will be walking up and down which was fine with us but might not appeal to all.
Once you entered you were in a combined living/dining/kitchen area with a separate bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was furnished with dishes for cooking and eating and there was a stove top and a microwave. There was also a TV with cable and some English stations which was nice.
The condo overall was very nice and modern with a balcony that wasn't advertised so that was a positive surprise. Worth noting is that it is very bare bones when it comes to linens, towels and toilet paper. Each guest is provided a single bath towel and a single hand towel. The bed is outfitted with sheets and a very light blanket and there was only one roll of TP per week left by house keeping. We just ended up grabbing a pack at the store but it would have been nice to have it there. Unfortunately, we were not given additional towels or blankets which was a bit unpleasant considering it was unseasonably cool during our stay.
Internet connectivity is spotty but this is pretty typical of most places in Playa so that was not surprising. If you have to work online quite a bit, I suggest using the Starbucks.
The location is very much in the city of Playa del Carmen and is not in the tourist area at all. This is nice if you are planning a longer stay or want to really experience the city but be aware that there is a lot of city noise including construction, traffic, and a public gym that offers classes 3 to 4 mornings a week with very, very loud music. Be prepared to be woken up as the bedroom faces that direction and you are close enough to see the people and hear the music very clearly.
I would recommend this for a couple on a budget or a long term stay not necessarily a vacation. We enjoyed our time but it might not suit the typical vacation traveler.
We arrived 2 hours before check in so Massimo gave us another apartment since ours was not ready. It was a beautiful and comfortable apartment and it looks just like it does in the pictures. Massimo was a great host and he gave us advice on where to go and how to get around in playa.
The apartment is 15 mins walk to the touristy side of playa which is perfect if you want to experience the city with the locals(who are extremely friendly and helpful) as well as with tourists.
Condo 46 is a good place to stay and would recommend to anyone who wants to have a real feel of the entire city.
Thank you Massimo! Linda and Judy will be back :)
My husband and I stayed here in Dec'13. It is about 15 min walk to the beach and here are lots of grocery stores, drug stores, laundry, etc. very close to the apartment. The place looks exactly as it is on the pictures! It is very clean, you'll have everything you need in the apartment like utensils, drinking water, air conditioner and parking space in case you have a car. Something to consider, there are no elevators, so is better to travel light!
Massimo is a great host, always willing to help with everything you need. We had a great time :) thank you Massimo!!!
I stayed at Condo46 in Dec '13. Everything was great, the condo is very clean and modern. The neighbourhood is really good for groceries and restaurants. It's a 10 - 15 minute walk to 5th Ave and the beach. Perfect residential/beach combo. Thanks Massimo!
Cordialità e sentirsi a casa propria dall'altra parte del mondo.
Ecco , queste sono le prime cose che mi vengono alla mente ricordando Massimo ed il suo condo a Playa.
Suggerire questa dimora inserita in un contesto completamente al di fuori dal caos ma a due passi dalla vita frenetica e spassosa di Playa è il minimo che si possa fare. La costruzione è moderna ed offre esattamente quello che viene descritto nel sito, e la simpatia di Massimo corrisponde a tutte le recensioni presenti nel medesimo.
Potete domandargli di tutto e sono sicuro che dopo una vacanza a Playa gli domanderete anche di prolungare il soggiorno, magari per tutta la vita.
A due passi (esattamente 8 minuti) dista la 5 ma ciò che vale la pena di essere vissuto è tutto quello che troverete vicino a questo condo.I negozietti delle persone del posto, le loro attività (dalle 8 del mattino fino alle 11 di sera,alla faccia della siesta messicana), i supermarcati (con una spesa italiana andate avanti 4 settimane minimo) ma quello che troverete è la cordialità e l'umiltà di un popolo che raramente ho trovatato nei miei viaggi.Rispetto, gentilezza , simpatia ed ancora altro è quello che il popolo mesicano vi offrirà e se sarete ospiti in questo splendido posto non riuscirete a non rincambiare ogni sorriso che vi verrà offerto.
Maria ed io siamo rimasti entusiasti di tutto e questo grazie anche al nostro punto d'appoggio , il Condo 46.
Giuro di non aver ricevuto nessun rimborso per questa mia recensione ma semplicemente il mio entusiasmo è scaturito da 15 giorni meravigliosi.
Grazie Massimo, graziedi tutto
