My wife and I stayed at Plaza Marina condos Feb 3rd for 7 nights. We enjoyed the condos for the most part. The easy access to 5th ave was a big plus. you are very close to eating establishments bars shopping etc. Don't eat at Carlos & Charlies, it's right up the street. The food was terrible and the cost was very high, 380 pesos for lunch which was inedible. We enjoyed lunch at the Blue Parrot, Mandarino's (pizza and champagne), and Teqila Barrel. We found a little bar just north of 20th on 5th called El costenitos, beer was 19 pesos, that's about $1.35 U.S. Change your money at the banks, we got over 14 to the dollar all the time, only 13 on 5th at the cambios. I'm rambling a bit, sorry. The condo as I said was nice. They cleaned it everyday but Sunday and did a great job. We tipped 50 pesos each time. The music from Senor Frogs was a little annoying especially on Sat. night, they went till about 3 a.m. with a live band. All you hear is thump thump thump. Condo didn't have a t.v. in the bedroom so if you wanted to watch news or movie late at night it was difficult to hear. Beach is very nice and only about 50 yards away. They provided towels boogie boards etc. for guests. Free long distance to U.S. and Canada, as well as wireless internet was also included, very nice. No pool which we missed a little while we tanned on the deck, nice to cool off once in awhile. We've stayed A.I. in Cancun 12 times before and will never do it again, we will go back to Playa and buy our own food and eat out, much better choices. Went to Bad Boyz beach club Thurs. and Sat. to hear JJ and the Nasty Bastards. It was a full house and lots of fun. It's located between 4 and 6 on the beach, kinda hard to find. Overall a nice place, but would maybe stay somewhere else with a pool and a little less noise. P.S. Beds are comfortable.
