“Perfect location, excellent value, beautiful property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We are a family of four and booked a two-bedroom duplex condo with a fantastic rooftop terrace with hot-tub and barbecue grill at Porto Playa. Everything about the place was top-notch - Porto Playa (and it's related properties Maya Village and The Taj) is a very high-end, nicely designed, intimate condo experience - not too big, not too small. Each unit has an upscale kitchen with stainless appliances and nice bathrooms. The pool area and the gym in the property are top notch. The property was spic and span, extremely well cared for. The location is perfect, one block off the ocean on First Avenue, one block from the main shopping and restaurant strip of Fifth Avenue, and right around the corner, a three-minute walk from the Indigo Beach club, which is included in the stay (good breakfasts). Also included in the stay is free classes at a very busy and well-equipped gym right next door. The overall feel of this place is hip, intimate and upscale. And clearly, compared to renting two hotel rooms, a condo is an excellent value, with lots more space.

We originally had selected another unit in a sister property next door, but we had to be moved at the last minute because the owner was using it during the time we wanted. So, they upgraded us to the penthouse with terrace, and threw in free breakast for four for the three days we were there for our 'trouble'. All in all, a very pleasant experience and we would definitely return again when we next visit Playa del Carmen.

Room Tip: Go for the penthouse suites with hot-tubs and BBQ grills. You can have a fabulous evening hot-tubbin...

Condo #217 was perfect! We had 2 couple stay for a week and we really loved Porto Playa! We spent a lot of time at the pool and everything is within walking distance. 1 block to the beach and 1 block to shoppping and restaurants. The condo also has a private upstairs deck complete with grill and hot tub. It was fabulous!! If you plan to buy your own groceries, I would definitely recommend the Mega. Beautiful selection of fruits and veggies as well as a bakery and deli. The staff is also very helpful We would definitely stay again!

Just returned from spending nine incredible days at Porto Playa Condo. From the moment I arrived I loved everything about the place. The landscape gardens and walkways are lush and tropical that overlook the most beautifully designed pool with plush lounge chairs and white umbrellas.
The apartments feel like a home, spacious and very tastefully done. The bathrooms are really luxurious and enormous with a great marble shower. If you plan on having dinner in, you won't be disappointed, the kitchen is fantastic stocked with anything you might need. There is also a wonderful patio for outdoor dining that overlooks the pool and gardens. A real treat for morning coffee.
The location could not be better, one block from 5th Avenue where all the action is. There are more stored, restaurants and outdoor cafes than you can imagine. Although having everything at your fingertips the hotel remains peaceful and relaxing. I was never disturbed by noise, actually it was always quiet and restful.
The beach is a few blocks away with complementary access to the Indigo Beach Club thats great for sunning and lunch. Also included in the condo is a first rate health and exercise club. There are classes in yoga, plates, and strength training. The classes and instructors are great, I went everyday..
Each and everyone of the staff members were so helpful and happy to do whatever you needed with a smile. Everyone at the hotel made me feel so at home. I have to say, staying at Porto Playa was such a wonderful experience, I can't wait to come back. I would defiantly recommend this condo to all my family and friends

We very much enjoyed our visit to the Porto Playa Resort. The grounds are very beautiful and the service was truly exceptional. Our unit #212 is the largest & nicest 1 bedroom we have ever stayed in. The 2 full baths were luxurious. The complimentary beach club is wonderful with compete food & bar amenities. We'll be back

Room Tip: Our unit #212 was a 1 bebroom with 2 full baths. Nicely decorated with a great island in the kitche...

We just returned from 10 days in beautiful Playa del Carmen. We stayed in Porto Playa where we spent most of our time at their beach club. We stayed in #212 which was spacious with everything we needed to make our vacation very comfortable. You won't believe the master bath! The staff are very friendly and professional. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: No stairs to climb in #212!
