We rented a penthouse condo with private rooftop hot tub from the owner on Airbnb. But 5 different condo hotels are managed by local property manager. Complimentary gym, beach club, and restaurant discounts! And you are one block away from the 5th Avenue action and shopping. You can still hear the best of the incessant electronic dance music that plays until 5 am.... ????but a white noise machine was provided in the bedroom Highly recommend this place
I'm here right now and love the place completely ... the best part of our room it's that it have a private rooftop with jacuzzi ... the room has plenty space, a nice living room, kitchen and a huge balcony
I was there last Saturday through Monday $350 approx for two nights. The water from the water cooler tasted terrible but worse yet the shower head dribbled such a small amount of water I could barely get wet and NO hot water! NEVER AGAIN. Playa is under threat from drug cartels demanding bribes, I witnessed this in a place last Saturday night according to the staff.
We have just returned from 7 days at Villas Sacbe condo 112. We rented through VRBO and HomeAway. Sergio the owner was easy to deal with. We communicated a few times before our trip and he was quick to reply. The condo is managed by condo hotels and their service from check in to check out was great. The location was perfect. 1 block from the beach and 1 block from 5th Ave. It is a busy area for nightlife. We brought earplugs but never used them. While the rooftop, patios, and living room are loud, we heard nothing in the bedroom. There is a white noise machine but we never had to turn it on and we were even there for New Years Eve and DJ fest! This condo is exactly as the pictures show. Private and romantic. Hot tub was perfect. We used it every day. We felt very safe there during our stay. The only thing it needs is a freezer, but we made do with a small cooler to keep ice for blended drinks! Walmart and Mega are close by for any supplies you might need. Hundreds of restaurants in all price ranges within a few blocks. So much to do around the Playa area, we will stay again for sure. Thank you Sergio and Villas Sacbe Condo Hotels for a perfect vacation!
The condo is good, the staff and all services are very good. But the apartment itself was really disappointing: we felt the pictures didn't correspond to reality. The bedroom was way to illuminated during the whole night. Therefore, it was hard to sleep, a bit noisy as well... Shower was very weak, with poor water pressure. We had the impression that we were staying at the worst apartment of the building (the first one, closest to the street)... At our first impression, we contacted booking trying to make arrangements to leave for another hotel, but the manager of the property was very helpful and made the best possible to better install us: put better curtains, high chair for baby, stool for us to seat, baby bathtub, a comfy crib - free of charges (we noticed they usually charge about 10% of the reservation value for a crib, which we consider expensive, specially because we travel a lot and always have that for free in other hotels). After well, we can do a very good rating, when thinking of service but not so much for the apartment itself. Would stay again in a property fro CondoHotels, but probably not at villas sacbe.
About the noise I think they reduced it or in my apartment 112 I can barely hear it inside the bedroom, it might be a problem in other apartments. We truly loved the swimming pool since it is very hot right now in Playa it is so refreshing to jump inside. The gardens are gorgeous and the position I think it is unbeatable, everything is just right there. The apartment is spotless, clean, the guys at the reception are fantastic. I like the beach club as well quite a bit, I think it is the best in Playa and comes free with the apartment. Trully a great place to stay.
We stayed in the Bamboo Penthouse #10 as managed by Moskito Vacation rentals. Laura from Moskito was charming and professional and really wonderful to work with. The condo was huge, even for a 3 bedroom, and it was well appointed and quite lovely. The location (with some exceptions that I'll note next) was ideal. Aside from some water pressure issues, we would go back to this condo and stay forever if we could. That being said, we can't do that, because we would never sleep again. There are 3-4 nightclubs about 1 block south of the condos that play outrageously loud music until 4am. I live in Chicago, in a busy downtown neighborhood, so when I say it's noisy, I'm not kidding. This isn't the kind of noise you can just drown out. It's awful, constant, base bumping Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber remixes all night long. I feel awful for people who purchased condos here and just want to rent them, but I can't recommend them unless you're a truly sound sleeper. My 15 year old thought it was "fun," but my 62 year old parents were not impressed, nor was I. I do think the owner has the price correct, as you can't get that large of a place in that neighborhood for that price. So if noise doesn't bother you, then this is the place. But if you at all can't sleep through house music, then spend a little more and go elsewhere. If it were my place, I would band together with others in the community to shut those night clubs down, or at least get them to turn it off at 2:00am instead of 4:00am, or at least just turn it down. Not sure how it works in Mexico, but it's such a waste of a beautiful place to have it ruined by that awful noise.
The condos are beautiful with lots of green and a pool in the middle. However there are some downsides: The condos are approximately 50 meters from the center of Playa nightlife. Forget a quiet night before 4AM. We used ear plugs and a white noise generator (iPhone) to kill the noise. The pool is not heated. Refreshing but too cool for children. During the day it is great to sit in the middle of trees and plants. Overall: great for party people. But not recommended for families!
The grounds were clean and beautiful. The condo was everything we expected. The service was outstanding. We did have some trouble with our hot tub and both the owner and the property management from the hotel went out of their way to make it up to us. Plenty of great things to do all around. This spot is particularly good for those who enjoy the night life, shopping and eating great food. The party on Quinta Avenida goes until 5 or 6 am! The sound machine in the bedroom really helped muffle the fun so we could rest for the next days adventure. I am happy to recommend this condo, the owner, the staff and this great area!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon here in #112 and were pleasantly surprised upon arrival of the hospitality at check-in, the complimentary services offered and the proximity of the condo to everything. The place was clean, had basically everything we needed, water cooler was a nice touch. Noise was a bit much on some nights but really couldn't hear it from the bedroom, especially with the white noise machine. Thought it was a little strange that the upstairs and downstairs weren't connected inside - you had to go outside and up the stairs to get in the hot tub. The hot tub was broken and we only got to enjoy one night in it before it lost all of its heat and was unusable for the rest of the week. Upon check-out the owner asked for feedback and after hearing of this actually partially refunded us some money for the inconvenience - super nice! The beach club is close but the view is terrible, would recommend going anywhere else to lounge (the whole tide is lined with boats so you can't swim). Also, DO NOT order the carrot margaritas - holy Montezuma's Revenge. Did I mention the toilet in the condo doesn't really flush? That was a fun bonding experience. Anyway, went to The Gym while we were there, very nice facilities if you want to workout on vacation. Would recommend this place overall.
