We stayed at La Vida Loco for week with our extended family and absolutely loved it. The house itself was very spacious. We had three families there and had plenty of room for everyone with extra space to lounge about. The house was very clean and had everything we needed available for cooking, eating, drinking. There was ample bottled water for drinking as well as filtered water for cooking and washing up. The pool was clean and an excellent spot to cool down. The house was situated in a gated community so there was never any safety concerns at the property. It is about a 10-15 minute walk (or a short cab ride) to a big grocery store. It is even closer to the beach, bars, restaurants, and shops.
Before we arrived in Mexico, Claudia answered all of our questions very promptly. She also helped us set up tours and transport to and from the airport. She also connected us with a wonderful chef that came to the house the night we arrived and prepared a Mexican feast. It was phenomenal!
Once we got settled in the onsite manager, Dan, took over right where Claudia left off. He helped us navigate around (even going so far as to give my sister and I a ride to the grocery store the first time). He helped us arrange additional tours, and checked in with us daily to ensure everything was running smoothly.
The WiFi left a little to be desired. Basic Internet was available, but streaming was not possible. My family has t-mobile with N. America plan so we had good service with that, but the others were with sprint and coverage was slim. We had better things to do than stream video though!
Overall, it was an excellent stay, I would not hesitate to return!
Sixteen family members, ranging in age form 14 to 78, traveled to Playa del Carmen
7-18 to 8-26th. We had a wonderful time! The Villa is beautiful and spacious. Even
though there were 16 of us we did not feel crowded at all. We spent a good deal of time out on the covered patio as well as in the large pool. At night we would go up to the rooftop patio to look at the stars or the lightening in the distance. Claudia was very easy to work with for the booking of the Villa and Dan can set up any trip, transportation or adventure your heart desires. Dan was always available to us. The short cut to the beach is about 10 minutes walk and to town about 20 minutes.
I would just like to say that the home was amazing. Great location close to just about everything. It was a pleasure dealing with Claudia and Dan who gave us a tour of the house when we arrived.
We traveled as a group of two families with four teenagers, and stayed at this great property in March. It was larger than we expected, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. It is located in a very quiet part of Playacar, backing on to the golf course. Playa del Carmen was within easy walking distance, with lots of restaurant and shopping options. The beach was a short distance away as well. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen, and the beautiful pool and patio. There was made service twice in the week during our stay, and regular grounds and pool maintenance. The bedrooms (five) were all large, and each had it's own bathroom, with shower. Would gladly stay here again, and would recommend without hesitation.
This was an awesome house with lots of room. The tenant(Clau)was very easy to work with. The walk downtown or the beach was very short(5 min). I will stay in this house on our next trip.
Ideal location: private pool: wading for little kids, and small swimming area as well. It had easy access to the beach and town. Good indoor areas for everyone to gather together, or to have personal space. Rooftop deck allowed us to watch New Years fireworks. Clau and her brother Dan were very responsive to our requests. Well designed & equipped kitchen space.
The Vida Loca house is truly an awesome home. Every room has its own bathroom, Beds were comfortable and clean. We had 10 people and it was more than enough room. cant say enough about the backyard amazing pool.
Claudia & Dan are awesome helped us with suggestions and arranging day trips.
Our entire experience was a 10+ we cannot wait to go back and live the "Vida Loca" again!
