My husband, myself, and our two school-aged children just got back from Playa del Carmen. This unit is in a perfect location. It is a short walk to all the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave., 4-5 grocery stores, the ADO bus station, etc. If you have a car, it is a central location to tour Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, Ek' Balam, XCaret, Cancun, etc. The owners (and front desk staff) went out of their way to make sure that we were situated. The apartment has all of the conveniences that American travelers are used to. Because of the in-unit washer/dryer, we were able to travel light. The fully equipped kitchen also allowed us to eat in when we were too tired from excursions to eat out. Beds were comfortable. The Wifi was also indispensable for telecommuting or for researching places that we wanted to visit (especially if we wanted the discounted on-line pricing for places like XCaret). We had a great time.
