Marie-F. Dayan purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Marie-F. Dayan chose Gonzalo Guerrero
My place is very well located in the downtown core of Playa (called Centro), it's good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (pets). shopping, restaurants, supermarkets are 2 to 5 minutes walking distance, and the ocean is 6 minutes walking distance. It is an honour to welcome you to my Zen Paradise !
What makes this Condo unique
You private Zen Garden in my property of 400 SF is extremely unique in Playa as space is a premium here...I poured a lot of heart and soul in making it a zen paradise, I hope you will enjoy i as much as I do when I want to escape from cold and icy Canada,...:-) My condo is ideally located in the heart of the heart of Playa on 38th Street one of the most beautiful streets of Playa. You are only 2 blocks from 5th Avenue (5 minutes walking distance) and 4 blocks from the beach (10 minutes walking distance).There are great restaurants and shopping options all around. The building is very safe and is equipped with a gym and two swimming pools. There are only 30 units in the building which gives it a very boutique style, with privacy, which is unique because on the 38th str (and in many dwellings in Playa ..) all buildings have at least 50 units which drives a large traffic of people and disrupt the tranquility and the intimacy. That's what charmed me in this building and gave me the crush to become owner ... The difference between a big hotel and a boutique hotel ... :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Nahiely, the property manager, was there to welcome us and was absolutely amazing our entire time there. She was always available using WhatsApp which we had never used previously. She even ran out to the store to pick up snacks, drinks and little other things upon our arrival. She even recommended a taxi driver by the name of Jonathan who became our tour guide/transportaion provider during our vacation. This really made our stay even more enjoyable and would highly using his services. He speaks good English and is a remarkable and respectful gentleman. We had fun with him and he showed us special places.
This condo is in a great complex as most units have not yet been sold. We practically had the entire two pools to ourselves Morning and afternoon. Very quiet and serene !!! This place is a real gem of a find.
Great location... close to grocery stores (10 minutes) , the ocean (10 minutes) and we walked to 5th avenue (5 minutes) every evening for dinner.
The terrace was nice place to lounge at any given time. Would check out Paradise Zen for sure . Bob and Dayna
Great place to stay
The condo was so close to 5th ave and Mega store. The place itself was beautiful and just as the pictures show. The only potential issue is if someone wants to cook a lot. The pots and pans are not in the best shape and it's an electric stove. The oven dials are worn out. But other than that - the two pools are well maintained and very clean - extra towels were provided for the pool. Also the security and management on site are very friendly and helpful. We would stay again.
Stayed for a week at this condo in January. The condo complex is quite small, and when we were there not a lot of folks on site. Location is excellent, a couple of blocks off 5th Avenue, at the north end of 5th. Easy access to all of 5th Avenue, restaurants, shopping, people watching. We walked to retail shopping to buy food for breakfasts for our stay, about 4 blocks. The unit is on the first floor of a four story complex. When we stayed there was construction going on across the street, so not as quiet as we might have liked. The condo itself is a good size for 2 people, and reasonably well equipped. The pool on the roof is great, and not busy, one day we saw another person at the pool, on another day were 2 other folks. The pool is not large, and the deck has room for 4 lounge chairs, and a table with 4 chairs. The second pool, on the main level is small but does have a four lounge chairs. There is a gym on site, a few free weights, bike, treadmill and ecliptical, gym was not busy at all, only saw one other person at the gym when we were there. There is a bike at the condo, however when we arrived the tires were flat so we did not use the bike, would be nice to have an air pump at the condo. There was a guard at the front entrance 24/7 and we always felt safe. 11 o'clock was an early check out, and the property manager was accommodating and allowed us to stay til 1 which worked much better for us.
Overall a good stay, good value.
Great location near 5th Avenue downtown.
Towels were very rough and not comfortable at all. Apartment could have been cleaner.
Clean, modern with good amenities
Loved the condo but found PDC to busy.
The property is amazing. The condo is fully equipped with everything! Aesthetically pleasing.
The condo itself is wonderful. We enjoyed the king size bed, overhead fans, beautiful shower with plenty of hot water, equipped kitchen, etc. We felt very safe. Disappointed that there was no dryer...just a clothes line. But we found a lovely lavanderia around the corner. And we would have given it 5 stars but we found ourselves frustrated a lot because the TV and WiFi would go out frequently. Out of the 12 days we were there about 7 days there was no TV and/or Internet. This was particularly frustrating because we needed to be in touch with family back home (as well as with a friend who lived in Playa del Carmen) and enjoy a movie or TV show before bed. We ended up buying an inexpensive "Mexican phone" that allowed us to call local numbers and make plans with our friend. So, this is a wonderful place to stay...just bring plenty of good books to read when the cable/ internet goes out.
Thank you for your good comments Jack, my management team had a good experience with hosting you. On wednesday May 24th we had a problem with CFE (the Mexican one and only electricity company...) during the day there was no light which broke several regulators and consequently created the issue of cable and internet failure. CFE did not fix the problem before Saturday that was your departure date. So it was not a problem with the internet company nor a failure of my teach to respond to fixing the problem, it was way above our head and we were dependant on FFE fixing the issue..This is life in Mexico sometimes there is no electricity for a few hours to a few days. I am sorry that this happened during your stay.
