“A charming spot”
Reviewed 27 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Stefano and his wife have built four beautiful villas in the quieter, northern section of Playa. Even though it isn’t an all inclusive, there are good restaurants with inexpensive tasty meals within a couple minute walk. Stefano was very helpful in getting us transfers to the airport and other tours. You can pay just a couple dollars and get a taxi to the busy downtown section but we preferred our quieter area. The beach is about a five minute walk. We felt very safe and cared for.

“Perfect Sanctuary”
Reviewed 3 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

From the moment you walk through the gate into the courtyard, we knew we had found our sanctuary. With Stefano, our host, waiting for our evening arrival, our suite
to be home for the next month, our terrace, overlooking the pool, everything was
perfect. The "Villas" so very tasteful designed by Stefano and his wife Paola,
artistic with added mexican details, fitting complementing.
Stefano always very helpful, where best to shop for groceries, places to eat off
the beaten path, suggestions for exploring the local neighbourhoods, arranging
small group tours, anything you might need or are interested in, he is there for you.
Close to the beach and lovely Fifth Avenue promenade, we were glad not to
reside beside one of the noisy huge Resorts, but between local family homes, where we found people very friendly, kids always about running around and smiling at your

“Charming”
Reviewed 16 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

My daughter and I stayed at Villas Del Mar for a week and loved it! The suites were simple and stylish with a mediterranean/mexican vibe. The rooftop deck was lovely as was the courtyard with the pool. The location was nice as it was close to the beach and maybe a 25 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave. We enjoyed walking into town along the beach but 5th Avenue is only a block away with a nice sidewalk that will lead you to the action. There are bikes for rent if you don't feel like walking and a restaurant close by if you don't feel like cooking. Stefano was always close by and we also enjoyed the company of the resident cat.

“Comfortable, restful, refreshing space with wonderful hosts!”

We stayed at Villas Del Mar longer than most guests. We were here for 2 months. The space is very comfortable and the pool is great. The beach was just a short walk away and our host Stefano and his wife were great. The bed was comfortable and our condo cat helped with the withdrawal symptoms of leaving our two cats at home. You can take a collectivo to Walmart or Mega for .50 by walking just a few blocks. The restaurant Don Chendo by Mega has some of the best Italian food ever and Don Chendo and Jimmy are great hosts. We visited there about once a week while we were there. If you are big into cooking the facitities are quite limited but I made due and I do love to cook. We had many dinners in candlelight by the pool and we also loved the sunning deck on the third floor. A delightful experience all in all. Thanks you Stefano and we miss you solieil.

“An excellent value for the cost”
Reviewed 24 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My wife and I stayed at Villas Del Mar for four nights in November. The upstairs apartment that we rented is really well designed with a very efficient use of space and some nice little touches such as the pebbled floor in the shower which prevents slipping. We also enjoyed the hammock and sofa in the adjoining deck and the owner provides as much bottled water as you need (downstairs in the little bar). Stephano, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful - a pleasure to know and interact with.
The only caveats we have are that the location in a somewhat non-descript neighborhood on the north side means you are quite a ways from the downtown center of Playa (which we wanted to be) and the evangelical church right behind the suites has some noisy services several times a week (but they end early in the evening).
But you also have access to nice, relatively quiet stretches of the beach a block away.
So overall a very good place to stay.
