“perfect for the low season -- so close to so many things”
Reviewed 16 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 star review is out of the hands of the excellent owners/hosts, and that is the all-night saturday night music that inevitably comes from being so close to everything. We stayed 5 days and only Saturday was a bit loud. My wife sleeps with earplugs anyway, so she didnt even notice, but our toddler slept out on the futon where, without the welcome white noise of the AC, it was less than ideal. We were there in July (so low season) so I can't comment on high season sounds.

That said, I would recommend this place in a heartbeat! The location is great -- like 2 minutes from 5th or the beach. I would suggest walking the extra block south to enter the beach by the Blue Parrot. It is a nicer stretch without the moored boats, and it is like an extra two minutes, literally.

The first day we hiked it to the Mega Mart (probably 10 blocks) and stocked up for breakfasts and snacks. But there is sooo much food so close (and an Oxxo too for quick convenience needs like laundry detergent, etc), that you might just skip the Mega and eat every meal out, if that's your thing and not feel the need to repeat places.

Joe and Francoise were super friendly and helpful and you can tell they totally love running this place. The courtyard pool was just the right size and depth for cooling off, for when the 2 blocks to the beach seem too far ; )

On the downside, even the first floor's single apartment would not be viable for the disabled. And there wasnt a view really from our suite, but for the price and location, these were totally worth the tradeoff.

“Character, comfort, conveniece”
Reviewed 23 November 2011 for a stay in May 2010

My husband and I stayed in the Martinique Suite at the Plantation house for 8 nights and easily could have stayed a lifetime! We chose the Martinique suite and Plantation house for a variety of reasons, but first and foremost, we were drawn by the lovely interior, colorful decor, beautiful warmth and authentic details captured in the photos. It's even more amazing in person. (The wifi is a huge plus, I might add - super fast).

Joe was very helpful and quick in responding to requests and inquiries prior to our arrival. The entire booking process was seamless from start to finish, he even arranged for private transfer from CUN.

The location is PRIMO. One block from the beach and another block from 5th avenue. Close enough to everything, but tucked away in your own quaint, quiet, tropical, paradise oasis. All units are accessed via a locked entry which leads you into a lovely courtyard/ pool area - we felt very safe (though Playa as a whole is safe). We absolutely loved Playa del Carmen and 90% of our experience was because of the comfort and convenience of the Plantation House. There are many restaurants, small groceries, bars, shops - you name it - all within a few steps.

I have been meaning to write this review for a while and just recently looked through pictures of our trip - which served as a pleasant reminder of how much we adored the Plantation House. It's so fabulous - so much so, that I kind of don't want to share our little secret ;).
