“Great Condo, Great Staff, But Beware of Noise Pollution!”
Reviewed 19 June 2011 for a stay in December 2010
people found this review helpful

The condo is direct ocean front, as advertised. Very convenient to walk straight out the patio onto the beautiful beach.

The security and staff who work at the condo were super nice and accommodating. They always went out of their way to make us feel welcome and taken care of.

The proximity of the condo to shopping and restaurants in Playa can't be beat! Everything is within walking distance. However, the condo's proximity to loud, incessant disco music proved to be a nightmare. After reading another post about the loud music, I called Tim, the owner, to get a better idea of what to expect. He never volunteered this information, mind you, I found out on my own, which I found concerning. He said the music from the Coco Maya restaurant next door (which turns into a disco at night) could be heard only from the front bedroom, but that we should have no problem sleeping.

Turns out, the thumping bass could be heard and felt in every bedroom, but the front bedroom was the worst. Make no mistake, we are not a group of old fogies. We are a group of well-seasoned travelers who can party with the best of them, so we tried to make the best of it. We drank and ate well, took medication to aid with sleep, and turned on the fans to block out some of the noise. The music was irritating, but did not become intolerable until New Year's Day. We all stayed up until 6:00 am on New Year's Eve/Day, because we love to party, and because the music was so loud we had no choice. We just rolled with it and had fun. However, the music, which was non-stop techno at a volume so loud it was like having a concert IN THE CONDO, did not stop until 4:00 pm on New Year's Day. NO ONE COULD GO TO SLEEP MUCH LESS RELAX ON THE BEACH THE ENTIRE DAY! PEOPLE CHEERED AND CLAPPED WHEN THE MUSIC FINALLY STOPPED. It was like being on a bad acid trip minus any of the fun, and we paid a premium price...$5,000! Tim assured me he could get this premium price for this week, but funny how the exact same condo next door during this "premium, in-demand week" was vacant the entire time we were there. I understand that the week we were there was a huge party week (Dec. 27-Jan. 2) but the price should be adjusted to compensate for the fact that we missed an entire night and day of relaxation and fun. I sent Tim an e-mail explaining this, and never received a response. It's been six months, so I'm assuming I won't get a response. I had hoped $5,000 would have warranted at least a response. Bummer.

Reasonable expectations are an important part of an enjoyable stay. I am in the vacation rental business in the Smoky Mountains of NC for over 11 years and I certainly know that misleading guests is never a good policy, and it was certainly not what was intended here.

I don't remember if it was the mother or the daughter of this group that I spoke with as I had communicated with members of this group several times, but I specifically told one of them that the New Year's Eve party would last into the next afternoon, as it does every year. I even told her the dance floor would spill out to the water and the morning beach-walkers actually go into the water to go around the dance floor (this doesn't happen any more since the beach was expanded last year). I also mentioned specifically that while I have never seen fights or any situation of drunkenness that would be considered a safety hazard, that she should be prepared to see fully-clothed people passed out or sleeping on the beach the next morning. Many locals come to party that night and can't afford a place to stay or can't find a room, so they spend the night on the beach. Playa regulars know and expect this, as they do with Semana Santa (Holy Week) leading up to Easter. I inform all potential guests of this as there are plenty of folks willing to pay the holiday rates and are coming to be close to all this, so it would make no sense to do otherwise.

By the way, the condo next door is only occupied a few times a year. It is a private, wealthy owner who does not rent it out, ever. It is also notable that I have not raised my rates (ever) even though the neighborhood has been elevated by the addition of El Taj and El Faro, two luxury condo buildings that are driving market prices higher for luxury beachfront properties.
