Just returned from a one week vacation with my family ( 2 kids , 8 & 18). We were in poolside condo 108 and what a treat!!! This was our first time doing the condo thing and not all inclusive, I was abit apprehensive mostly about security, but the minute we arrived I knew we made the right choice. The condo is located on a quiet serene road, sitting on my patio every morning listening to the birds was a nice treat that you wouldn't get at a noisy all- inclusive resort. The condo is a 20 minute walk from all the restaurants and stores you could ever need. My 8 year old daughter did this walk every day, sometimes twice a day, very nice walk. The condo has everything you ever need, laundry, coffee pot, iron, BBQ, towels , even some basics in the kitchen ( if you arrive late like us 11pm)to get you through until you go to the Mega ( Mexican Walmart) to get your supplies. Last but not least , I have to say the staff were AMAZING!!!! Not being a resort, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. There is always security on site. Someone is always around to help, although you don't get house keeping daily like a resort , the ladies are there and will get you what you need. Ok, so not having been there , we weren't sure what we were going to do and how to go about setting things up, let me say that IVONNE our Brik representative was SOOOO AWESOME. Ivonne went above and beyond the call of duty ( even on her day off , calling , helping texting us/) she arranged a car rental for us , which was easy peasey! She set up the most amazing snorkel tour from Cozumel for us. She literally spent hours helping us organize our short stay. Very Very helpful, our stay would not have been so successful and enjoyable without Ivonne's help. We will be back next year! Just for Longer!!!
This was our first time doing the condo thing. We have been coming to Playacar for many years (10) and have always done the all inclusive. We thought we would give the condo a try as we are in our early 50s and wanting to do this when we retire. We rented Coral 204 along with two of our friends. We were only there one week but it was the best experience ever. Coral 204 is a three bedroom, two bathroom condo with a massive living, dining and kitchen area. The owner has TVs in two of the bedrooms with a large TV in the living room. All have satellite. The balcony is equipped with a propane BBQ. The kitchen has an oven, stove and fridge with ice maker. This condo also has a washer and dryer with was really useful when coming back from the pool or beach. There is a water cooler with water provided for the length of your stay. We brought our own spices and hand soap as well as any type of Canadian item we thought they would not sell in Mexico. The pool is very large and very warm and we never had to fight for a chair. The beach is only a 10 minute walk from the condo. We walked to Playa del Carmen along the beach a few times during our stay. It was wonderful! You can also walk to Playa del Carmen alongside the road. It is about 15 to 20 minutes away. It's a nice walk in the morning before it gets too hot. The security guard will get you a taxi any time you need one. Walmart is about a 30 minute walk (which we did a few times) and has the best variety of food. We took a taxi home with the bags of groceries. You can grab a taxi as you come out of Walmart. Very easy and very fast! Ivonne is the Bric representative that will help you with anything you need. She is located in the lobby during the day. She is super nice and super helpful. We hope to be back to Paseo del Sol in the future.
We have been staying for 5 weeks in condo Reef 204 in March 2017. The condo is so beautiful with a direct view on the 90 meters pool! It has 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms very nicely decorated! But what made the perfect vacation for us, it is her manager, Carla Kaser,.... she's a gem! Prompt and professional service, very polite and well educated and always ready to help us. When we needed something, the next day we had it and she speaks French, English and many others languages! Many thanks Carla... you are the best!!
Just returned from 6 weeks at Paseo del Sol..This was our third stay at Paseo and our second renting through Bric. They are very professional to deal with, from the online reservations to checking out. Yvonne, the Bric Ambassador at Paseo is a breath of fresh air...always willing to help with whatever question you might have...always with a smile and an answer. We like the quiet location of this complex, the meandering pool and walks. It is within walking distance of 5th Ave and taxis are readily available. Would recommend it.
Paseos del sol condo hotel houses one of the largest pools in the area as well as free access to a gym, sauna and tennis court. The beautiful golf course in Playacar is right on your door step which won the certificate of Excellence 2013 and it is easily the most challenging course in the Maya Riviera. It'll stand up to almost any course, anywhere for difficulty. The units are spacious with marble floring and granite kitcken worktops, there is an elevator , parking and the beach is across the road in the Reef Club hotel.
First off I would like to say we attend the area about 6 weeks a year and this was our first Condo experience. Rented from the Bric Co. No issues at check in room was ready (C205). There were only two of us (late 50's) and it was a 2 bedroom 3 bath unit. The room itself was huge and clean ( no musty smell, ants etc) and modern furniture. Lots of towels and the kitchen was well equipped. No complaints at all. Coffee, dish and laundry soap provided. As well as some bath soaps to get you started. Lots of towels and sheets. Nothing we really did not need. Yvonne at the front desk the Bric rep was very helpful and pleasant. The grounds were spotless and well kept. Security making the rounds day and night. Very quiet crowd of mixed ages. Walk to Playa 5th Ave 20 minutes and the beach 12 minutes. Never used the pass to the Reef AI hotel. All in all the place is great clean and safe. I would recommend. Not sure how the other units are furnished but ours was almost perfect. Only reason not a 5 star is because it's not on the beach and I knew that before hand and the rental price reflects that. Great place.
We rented a Condo here for a month. Walk into Playa but go back to the peace of Paseo Del Sol. Amazing pool. Not crowded, not noisey, beautiful apartments. There is parking available if you decide to rent a car, and the cleaners do a fantastic job. The pool guy is the friendliest, as was Yvonne from Brica who was managing our property. Only 1 block from the beach.
We stayed here the week of Easter. The condo itself was nice and well stocked. It was our 1st time staying in a non-all inclusive place. The pool was decent. There was a tennis court. That was about it. Did not even offer coffee in the lobby in the morning. I think this place would have been better for our family if there was a restaurant on site. The walk to town was about 10-15 minutes. Fairly, easy to get a taxi, but every time it was a different price. We went to the Reef Club across the street for beach access and could not buy food or a drink, being we were not an inclusive guest. We could purchase a all inclusive wrist band for $53 per adult, which we chose not to do. In the description of the condo it stated we got maid service 2 times during our stay, we only got it once cause it was "busy season". Our last night there, we were watching TV a gecko jumped out from behind the TV and so did a big cockroach! Yuck!
We booked this three bed condo because of the photos listed online and being told there was beach access through the hotel across the road. Our condo was outdated and the bathrooms especially needed to be updated, towels and bedding was old and washed out, had we known these were privately owned condos before we would not have booked, our was nothing like the photos shown online. This place is NOT 4 star, more like a good 2 star. The beach access is limited to 20 rooms and a number of condo complex on the road have card to access The Reef, if you are not there by 8.45 waiting in a long line you have no chance of getting in and its a maximum of 4 per condo so if you have a larger family only 4 of you will have access, we did not know this when we booked. There are a large number of home owners here and its them that must be leaving the good reviews online. Old and noisy AC units. Expedia said 'daily maid service' we were told the maid would come only once in our 5 day stay and no more. Playa Car is a great area we were just disappointed with our choice to stay here.
Great location with a beautiful pool, beach nearby, & within walking distance of Playa del Carmen and a small mall. The patio doors in the living room and two of the bedrooms allowed a view and a nice breeze. However the third bedroom was a small, dark cell with no drawers or bedside table & barely enough room to walk around the bed. The air conditioners spewed mold or dust, kicking in my allergies big time. The kitchen was under-stocked, lacking plates, cups, & silverware for the six of us. Also the advertised shampoo was lacking and an adequate supply toilet paper was hard to come by.
