About Gina Pumarejo

I'm a single business oriented profesional, 4 children and living in the United States. I hope you enjoy your stay in my beloved condo!! Please let me know if I can do anything to make your stay SECOND TO NONE!

Gina Pumarejo purchased this condo in 2010

Why Gina Pumarejo chose Playa del Carmen

I love Playa del Carmen for it's obvious beauty and proximity to the Mayan Coral Reef. Tropical beaches, ancient ruins, abundant marine and wildlife abound. The Great Mayan Reef is the largest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere. Mexicans refer to the Riviera as 'Riviera Maya' while foreigners call it the 'Mayan Riviera' or 'Maya Riviera'. There is SO much to do here!! Great place to get away from it all. Visit the Mayan ruins of Tulum, just 45 minutes away. Unique 'eco-archeological' theme parks, Xcaret & Xel-Ha. Xplor is an adventure park with 13 zip-lines, amphibious vehicles, raft rides under stalactites and more. The fabulous restaurants on 5th Avenue. The people-watching from a street side table can delight you for hours! Walk almost everywhere. From one end of 5th Ave to the other....

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely once a few wrinkles were ironed out by her marvellous Manager, Jorge Bribescua. The location is excellent between 5Th Avenue and the wonderful ocean. The condo needs a facelift but has good bones. Great restaurants all within walking distance, we loved Off the Vine on First, especially their theme nights, Zero Zero for fabulous pizza and Dona Aurelia`s in Playacar for Mexican, also Chiltepin on 34th. We spent Febuary and March there and would return tomorrow!!

my favorite property in playa del carmen

  • 5 of 5

I travel to Playa Del Varmen often, both as a get away with my wife and with our children. We rented Doca 302 for a family getaway over the Christmas holidays.

The manager was very helpful and very responsive when we did have a very small issue-the toilet running. The condo is beautiful and very well laid out 2 bedroom. The outside deck is two levels and very nice. You can also enjoy the rooftop pool deck which we swam at a few times.

The condo is clean, new and modern. The location is very good... just a few blocks walk from the beach and only a couple blocks of 5th ave. We always felt safe, this condo is in a good area. The onsite manager was seen often around the condo. He was very nice and friendly, always willing to help with directions or a restaurant recommendation.

I had some worries when we booked because of the noise mentioned in other reviews. This never bothered us. I was very familiar with the area and knew exactly what soccer field this sits next to. There were dance/zumba classes going until the evening but they were never loud enough to disturb us. If you are on the deck you would hear it, but it was not disturbing. You certainly would not hear it inside the condo with a TV on.

We will absolutely attempt to book this condo when we return to Playa.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

It was an ideal location, 2 blocks from the beautiful beach, 1 block away from 5th Avenue, apartment was as expected good quality - beds were amazing and the roof top terrace was ace for the end of the day. I will be going back and staying next year for sure!!! My girls loved it and well worth it!

Less than Expected

  • 3 of 5

We’ve stayed in Playa many times and are very familiar with the town. Although the website description of DOCA 302 is generally accurate, we experienced several unexpected conditions. The DOCA building is not “just one block from the beach” but rather five blocks. Depending on one’s route, the walk can be quite pleasant. There are no “amazing views” from the deck. The only thing seen is the ugly roof of a building immediately across the street with propane and hot water tanks. Although a photo of the living room includes a partial view of this roof, reality does not become apparent until you are sitting on the balcony. Mostly, one sees urban sprawl. Do not expect an “amazing view of the ocean”. The website’s photo of a white tower and the sea behind is misleading. These are much further away than indicated. We were looking forward to a peaceful vacation; instead, we experienced so much noise that we stayed away from the condo as much as possible. At night, we slept with earplugs and eye masks. There’s a lot of traffic on nearby streets. If you don’t mind the irritating noise of motorcycles, tour buses, etc., it will not be a problem. Somewhere, outdoor sports classes start at 8:00 A.M. Imagine 30 or 40 balls hitting the court at once! Night games can last till midnight with enthusiastic fans playing drums to support their teams. Loud, Zumba classes destroy any sense of tranquility. We couldn't sit on the balcony and enjoy a glass of wine. The Jacuzzi on the upper deck could not be used for the same reasons. Nearby lighting shines into the bedroom which stays on all night. A two-inch gap between each blackout blind seems like a flashlight in one’s face, an irritation that reduces the quality of sleep. There are no screen doors. The glass patio doors could not be left open at night since cockroaches crawl in. Security is an issue. Two condos, one floor below, were robbed during the day. Daytime security was subsequently added by building management. Both roof pools are lovely and clean. There is absolutely no shade, which becomes very uncomfortable in sunny Mexico. This location would be suitable for some; however, our vacation expectations are perhaps different. We did not expect to be annoyed by noise or the view in a "first class" destination. The Owner tried to relocate us to a quieter property; but at the last minute, was unable to do so. Ana, the condo manager was very kind and helpful as was her associate Rodolfo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am happy that you were pleased with the pool area : ) It is impossible to know what your expectations were prior to arrival. It is unfortunate that you were not able to enjoy this beautiful condo as many others have. As you know, from the moment you arrived, we worked very hard to make you happy, and even offer you other options. All other reviews are EXCELLENT. They speak for themselves. With all due respect, we were very surprised by the attitude and constant negativity from this guest, regardless of our efforts. It's unfortunate that when someone radiates such negativity, everything seems to go wrong around them. Or perhaps it's just the perception someone has depending from what "lens" you look at life through. The solarium does have an ocean view, and the intermittent zumba classes have been a hit with other guests as the music offers a festive environment (we are in playa after all) for happy hour drinks on the patio. Entrance to the building has been limited to programmed key access cards available only to owners and their guests. Also, a 24 hour security officer has been put in place. There was in fact a theft that was deemed to be an "inside job" by someone who had done work in the condos. These two adjoining condos owned by the same person - they robbed the security safes. This is the only theft at Doca. Immediately the building owners and management took security measures.

Excellent price, location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit with another couple and had a very pleasant stay, it is just off the main street and a few minutes walk to most anywhere that you could want to go to, even the end of the strip is about a 20 minute walk. The interior is beautiful and very contemporary. The unit has a washer and dryer so this makes a bonus over a hotel room stay and you can just wash your own clothes. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of utinsils, plates and glasses. The Megamart is about 4 or 5 blocks away and a great place to get some groceries to stock up, and of course the town is abundant with the best food in the world.

Playa del Carmen Doca 302 Condo

  • 4 of 5

Doca 302 is a beautiful condo. Only a few years old, it is contemporary and nicely furnished. It is also spacious. One of the best features is a roof top lap pool about 120 feet long plus a small regular pool. There are ocean views from the roof top. The condo is very conveniently located. The only downside is that the views from the condo itself are simply of city buildings and a big athletic complex just to the west.
