Villas Sacbe are one in 4 of the condo hotel complexes and is by far the worst. We paid almost as much as we paid for Porto Playa and there is a HUGE difference in the quality of this compound. There is no front desk or guards, no pool, and the quality of the units themselves are subpar. Beds are uncomfortable, linens are cheap, pillows are lumpy. And we paid 250 a night. My biggest complaint about this place is the fact that it is right by the clubs and the music shook our room until 5am. It was terrible. Not relaxing, could not sleep. I much prefer the other locations.

Villas Sacbe#12 (Penthouse)

We spent a an enjoyable week at Villas Sacbe #12 in mid February. I can’t say enough about the service and hospitality provided by the owner, Evelyn, and the property management company, Moskito.
The condo is centrally located a block from the beach and a block from 5th Avenue. Super location! The condo is spacious, clean and well-maintained. We were very satisfied with the amenities provided and appreciated the extras provided by Evelyn and Laura.
This was our sixth visit to Playa and we have always felt safe no matter where we travelled.
The condo and building is quiet during the daylight hours, but because of its proximity to the nightclub zone, some may be bothered by the constant beat of the music that starts at approx. 10 pm. I wasn’t bothered by the music, the bedroom at night provided a sound barrier so one can sleep.
I would return to Villas Sacbe #12 as I appreciated its location, the memberships (the Gym and Indigo Beach Club) and the peaceful tranquility of the daytime hours.
I have visited many hotels and I will state without hesitation that the service provided by Evelyn (owner) and Laura (Moskito Property Management) is second to none. Prior to my visit they responded to all inquiries, we did not experience any problems during our stay.
When we arrived at Villas Sacbe on our first day we were welcomed by Laura, as we stepped into Villas Sacbe she welcomed us “home”. We truly felt at “home” and had a wonderful week in Playa. Merci beaucoup!!

We're about half way through our stay in unit #12 and have been having a blast. The apartment complex is small with only 12 units, which keeps things calm and relaxing. The courtyard is beautiful and lush with mature plants. This specific unit is tastefully furnished and clean; beyond expectations. The only complaint I have is the noise at night from the clubs. This has been mentioned lots, and perhaps exaggerated by some, but undeniably it's annoying. From about 10 pm until 4-6 AM it's very loud. You can still watch TV and carry on a conversation but the music is impossible to ignore. Thankfully with the insulation in the bedroom, it can be completely drowned out by the AC. A light sleeper may have problems, but personally I've been getting good nights sleep every night.

I highly recommend villas sacbe #12 for those looking for an interesting alternative to the resorts. It's spacious, peaceful (during day and early evening), well located, and feels completely secure.

Our stay at Villas Sacbe was wonderful. The location was perfect for both shopping and beach activities. The staff and service were exceptional. We also purchased the breakfast package and enjoyed a great breakfast every morning. We definitely recommend including the breakfast during your stay. Our condo (103) was quiet and private. The furnishings were cute and comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with coffee and all the things you need. The internet service was dependable with a good signal. Villas Sacbe had all the comforts of home in wonderful, lush surroundings. We also discovered a wonderful sipping tequila, Don Julio, while there. It was recommended by one of the wait staff and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the beach in the evenings having one..sometimes two. Perfect place for us.

Room Tip: Room 103 was very quiet and private. Sunny afternoon on patio, shady for morning coffee.

We recently stayed in unit 107 at Villas Sacbe. I stayed with my husband, 8-month old son and 2 other family members. We could not have had a better stay or been more comfortable. The finishes in the condo give it a special Mayan feel, and the private patio is surrounded by lush plants. There's also a beautiful small pool. It's really like a secluded gem in the heart of the action. Thankfully noise from nearly clubs was blocked out by thicker windows in this unit. We had excellent service--whenever we needed an extra blanket, towel, or pillow--guests services was right there with it. It's also only 1 block to the beach, and access to Indigo beach club chairs is included in the stay. We hope to be back to #107 soon.

Room Tip: Condo 107 has thicker windows and it doesn't have a palapa, so noise from nearby clubs was not an issue.
