The check-in process, the hotel, the grounds, the customer service, the location and the unit!!!??? All I can say is WOW!!! Porto Playa Condo Hotel and Beachclub will always be my hotel of choice!!! Everyone was sooooo friendly, I can't wait to return!!! This place truly has all of the comforts of home!!! I personally think unit 221 is the best!!! It has a private entrance to the pool!!!

The one and only disapointment is that the luxury truck that I requested for pick-up from the airport was not comfortable for 5 women but the driver was awesome and made the best of an uncomfortable situation, kudos to him!!!

Thanks Porto Playa for making my 50th Birthday Celebration Special!!!

Room Tip: Unit 221 is a perfect size for 6 people!!! Do not order the luxury truck if you have more than 4 people...

Regarding your comments about the comfort of the luxury truck, rest assured that these have been relayed to the concerned heads of the transportation company for their immediate review.

Make sure to keep us posted as to when your travels bring you back into Playa del Carmen because we would love to have you back at Porto Playa!

Warmest regards,

Great hotel in the centre of Playa del Carmen, right by the main shopping street. That said, the hotel was quiet and street noise was non-existant. The pools and jacuzzi were sometimes a little too hot, but beautifully situated in lush green garden. The hotel appartment was perfect with cooking facilities and wifi. Breakfast was located in 2 restaurants. Preferred the beach restaurant for its buffet-style service. Best of all, was the access to the gym next door. What a great gym!!!!!

We had a short three night stay at the Porto Playa, Penthouse 220, and we were very impressed with the unit, facilities, and overall coziness of this Condo. Everything about this room was perfect and provided us with plenty of space to relax as well as a gorgeous kitchen to cook in. From the guest room to the rooftop terrace we loved it. And the Rooftop is bigger than what we expected too, even had a shower and refrigerator to boot.

The only negative I would say is the beach near this resort/ condominium. It is smaller than we'd prefer and found ourselves walking to Playacar every day to have a nicer view.

Overall, the Porto Playa is an exceptional place to stay when visiting Playa del Carmen. We WILL be back.

I stayed here with my husband and two children aged 19 & 17 for two weeks at the end of July and we absolutely loved it! The location is perfect, being one block back from the beach (we often used the Indigo Beach Club and the service was excellent) and one block down from the vibrant Fifth Avenue which is teeming with shops, bars, restaurants and fun! Amongst all this, Porto Playa is a little oasis with immaculate, lush gardens and an attractive pool where you can have all the peace & tranquility you require. My kids loved the well-equipped gym and we all enjoyed the private rooftop terrace (we stayed in apt 214). The staff are friendly and helpful and the housekeeping is first class. All in all, 4 very satisfied customers. We would love to return one day.

We booked Condo 221 for a girls Memorial (day) weekend and the condo was beautiful and as pictured. The air conditioning worked, it was clean and the view from the top patio was incredible. There was laundry detergent in the laundry closet and the refrigerator was stocked with drinks. Physically, the place is spot on! We also were very happy to enjoy complimentary breakfast daily at Indigo Beach (best spot of all breakfast options).

Here's where it gets a little sticky: We planned on drinking our own purchased items, so we took all of their beer and wine and placed in the bottom of the fridge. After the trip, I received emails stating that we drank 2 of their beers and that they were going to charge me $6.11. It took me many emails to get them to agree not to charge my credit card.

We also booked a private dinner to be cooked at the condo. This turned out to be the worst experience of our trip. I have numerous emails with respect to the dinner. Porto Playa Concierge has two catering companies that they work with and we chose "Chef Coty" to cook for us. The agreed upon price we received in writing was $160 plus the cost of the food at a maximum of $14 per person. That evening, two gentlemen showed up with the food to cook. I asked them where Chef Coty was and they told me that she is an organization and that she hires out to other chefs. This was quite disconcerting since we are five women and we specifically chose her because we knew that we would be drinking and we didn't want to feel uncomfortable. The chefs cooked a delicious meal. Since it was my birthday, my friends took care of the bill. The next morning I was told that they paid the chefs $35 per person and tipped based on that cost! I was shocked and embarrassed! I have many emails from the Concierge company of Porto Playa and the last was confirming that the cost for the food was at most $14 per person! I went to the Concierge office the next day met with Giovanni (with whom I had the email correspondence) and he called Chef Coty. After a 10 minute phone conversation, she acknowledged that she had to reimburse us $105 dollars and that she would have someone bring the cash to us by 7pm that evening. It seemed a little petty that she reimbursed us a portion in American dollars and a portion in Mexican currency, especially since we paid in American dollars the night before. Due to this stressful situation and the dispute over the $6.11 for the two missing beers I took a star off the rating.

Another item, was that since we were celebrating my birthday, a friend called ahead and ordered three bottles of champagne. The premise was that they were supposed to be refrigerated; but unfortunately they were placed on the table so they were warm when we got there. She felt bad since she was very specific with her request.

So, in essence, we loved the condo, the pool was clean and we had a great time. The staff treated us well and breakfast at Indigo Beach was a very lovely touch.

The beach by Playa de Carmen is quite non-existing and mired with seaweed. We knew this coming in, and we were told that we could go to their sister hotel, approximately 30 minutes away to swim. Don't waste your time, it has very similar conditions with respect to the seaweed. We also had to deal with being nickel and dimed. We were told that we would receive a food and beverage discount (since they are affiliated with our hotel). What we weren't originally informed was that we had to spend a certain amount of pesos each to receive the discount.

Room Tip: We loved Room 221, it had plenty of space for all of us, and many outside seating areas.
