Xaman ha 7208, is one of the most luxurious beach-front condominiums at Xaman-Ha and is our personal home when we are in Playa del Carmen. We have it furnished in an elegant Mexican style, but it has required necessities like TVs, telephone, washer and dryer, high speed wireless internet service, and has just had a major renovation with a new kitchen, central air conditioning and a new satellite cable system. We have central air conditioning and an ultra modern kitchen. 7208 has a very complete kitchen including a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave oven, stove top burners, and a regular built in oven, In addition, the kitchen has granite counter tops and tile back splashes. Our unit is non-smoking. The condominium is accented with crafts from local artists that provide the perfect backdrop to beautiful ocean views and the lights of Cozumel that can be seen from the furnished deck. The condominium is located in the Xaman-Ha complex, within the quiet, sophisticated gated Playacar Development (35 miles south of Cancun) in Playa del Carmen and is within 200 yards of the town border of Playa del Carmen and the ferry pier to Cozumel . The beautiful white beaches of Playa del Carmen ( which they have finally rebuilt) stretch for miles and are perfect for private picnics, morning jogs, or just a slow evening stroll. When taking a break from all the available water sports - snorkeling, scuba, sailing etc., condominium residents can play a round of golf at the world class Robert Von Hagge designed golf course, relax at this Playa del Carmen country club or enjoy a massage at the Xaman-Ha Spa.
The unit sleeps 4 people. It has 2 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms with utilities, maid services and linens provided. Master suite has a king-sized bed, dressing area, and separate area with shower/tub and toilet. Second bedroom has twin beds which are not permanently affixed to the walls so they can be moved together. Additional center hall bath. Combination kitchen, dining, and living room. Outside balcony with lounge chair and additional table and 4 chairs.
The unit is on the top (second) floor in the center of the complex facing the ocean. The levels are ground, first and second. There are no elevators. There are only two units on our floor. The person next door owns the rest of the floor so in is extremely private. No one comes to the floor or passes by unless they are coming to see you or the person next door. The views are spectacular. It's quiet because no one is above you nor next to you. The unit also has cathedral ceilings so it seems twice as large as the other units. We keep it in first class condition by going down periodically and personally inspecting it. We have two fresh water pools and a lovely beach. The pools are interconnected and one-half of each pool is only 6 inches deep for small children. There is a large Palapa to sit under to stay out of the sun. The beach is sandy and goes down in depth very gradually. There are very few waves and the water is crystal clear and a bluish /green in color. We do not have dinning facilities to keep the residential feel of the complex but we do have a pool bar. The unit has bottled water. The unit contains all the towels and linens you need but additional beach towels are always welcome because they seem to disappear. Our unit is fully equipped with a full sized refrigerator/freezer, washer/dryer, complete kitchen, telephone, cable TV , wireless internet service, etc. Playa del Carmen has many shops, world class restaurants and a pedestrian walkway-a great place to visit and sightsee but not necessarily stay. Dive and snorkeling boats leave from the various locations on the beach in Playa del Carmen.
Xaman-Ha is the best located beach front condominium complex in Playacar or Playa del Carmen.
***There will be noise due to Renovations and Construction at Xaman Ha during September and October 2014. Please keep this in mind when booking***...Read more

I was there 6 nights with my family. The Condo is good and very nice location. This apartment needs repair in my opinion.It is dark and the furniture should be changed. The refrigerator had a bad internal smell and we bought in Walmart an deodorant to solve this situation.
Administrative people are very friendly and the location very close to Fith avenue, principal street of the town.
It would be good change the furniture in the terrace and others like hairdryer, refrigerator and principal door key.
The apartment has a good sight. I am not sure if I would rent again it, except a renovation regarding I have told. But I recommend the Condo.
Absolutely excellent facility and location, very very relaxing,

This is our 6 th time in Playa- the last 3 have been at Xaman-ha. Needless to say, we enjoy everything about it and it's why we enjoy coming back. Everything is always ready and working for us upon arrival. Having cable & wireless Internet is also a plus. Most important the location, weather beauty are always enjoyable. Of course having 5 th ave within a couple of minutes walking is huge- the number of restaurants is amazing. We now have a few favorites in De Bruno, Ajua, BluevLobster and Karen's to name a few. Tony- thanks for attending to the details

If you are staying in Playa del Carmen and want peaceful setting yet close to all of the action I don't think there is a better spot. The beach in front is probably the best in the area, unless you are looking for the all day party vibe. Playacar 1 is also relaxed and gorgeous to stroll and has several Mayan Ruins and "jungle paths". 7208 also has arguably the best view in the entire complex, direct view and nice height. Xaman-Ha restraunt right around the corner is awesome and reasonably priced.
We did have a mix up with the key upon arrival, the beds are a little uncomfortable and the Wifi did not work for us, hence the 4 star rating instead of 5. But I can not stress enough that this is an excellent location.

The condo's view of the Carribean is breath-taking from the top floor balcony. The accommodations were comfortable for four adults, kitchen facilities were well-stocked with necessities, the pools and beach were clean and easily accessible, and the walk into Playa or the ferry to Cozumel was convenient. The Xaman Ha complex feels safe and secure as does the walk to town. We enjoyed our stay !

Perfect view of the Carribean from the terrace. Dishwasher, air conditioning, comfortable furniture, washer/dryer. Plenty of closet space. All appliances needed to cook in (which we did, twice). Close to town but still a quiet area. Maids cleaned every day and were very pollite.

This was our fourth time staying in unit 7208 but our first time with kids. What a great trip. The condo was spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 kids. We loved being on the 3rd floor away from any noise made by neighbors or people at the pool. The kitchen was well-equipped for our purposes; we didn't do any "serious" cooking but found everything we needed for making breakfast and lunches. The kids spent most of our vacation in the pool, meeting and playing with other kids from all over. Each pool has a shallow half: one part was about 6 inches deep and one part was about a foot and a half (we couldn't get my 4yo out of that part!). The bartender at the swim-up bar was a welcome addition since we'd last visited; being able to grab a burger for lunch right at the pool was a luxury! One of the main reasons we love to stay at Xaman-Ha is the combination of Playacar security and proximity to 5th ave. We walked there every night for dinner, souvenir shopping (my girls had allowance money to burn!), and people watching. We'll definitely be back!

we loved the ocean view from the balcony. The concierge at the building was very helpful. 5th avenue was less than 5mn walk from the building. Overall, our stay was great. We'd go back to the condo next time we go to Playa.

What a pleasure it was to rent the condo from Tony. Due to a plane emergency, we were not able to fly out on our arranged date... I called Tony on the phone and he was able to arrange a new check in and check out date so that we would not miss any days of relaxation. We began our trip in Tulum and then made our way to Playa Del Carmen. After 4 days in hotel room, the two of use were delighted to get our own room and bathroom.
Upon arriving, I helped myself to a beer that had been left in the fridge, check out the place, and relaxed---I knew this was going to be nice. The condo is perfect! Well decorated, super clean, with beautiful views-these came in handy during the storms we were subjected to, but laying on the couch stealing glimpes of the pool and the ocean while reading a book afford great opportunity to do nothing in comfort.
The location just could not be beat. Literally a hop, skip, and jump from 5th avenue and far enough away from the noise. The beach in front of the condo was super quiet due to the party happening across the dock where all the hotels are.
The condo has the washer and dryer, all the pots, pans, juicer, you name it---I never had to look for something; it was just there.
The condo is big enough for a family of 4 comfortably. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a great getaway in a lovely relaxing place.

We know Playa del Carmen very well spent there 4 of our vacations starting in 1998, we stayed in many different places: budget hotels, Iberostar all-inclusive hotels and the flat 7208 in Xaman Ha Condo is probably the best place to stay in PdC. It is 300 meters from la quinta the main shopping street and at the same time far from loud nightlife. Location is perfect. What is more is direct sea view. The flat is very big for a family of 3 living room and kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms. Drinking water included in the price. It is really a vary good place to stay. We totally enjoyed it. What is more we recommend not to use aircon. With an open balcony window/door and windows in both bedrooms you get such a nice breeze that aircon is just killing it. We stayed for 15 days and never needed, never used it. We got a very good value for our money. We even managed to avoid wearing pathethic all-inclusive-like bracelets:-)

We stayed with friends in Condo #7208 for the entire month of May. We had stayed in this condo several times previously and, as always, were very satisfied. The condo has a fabulous view and the beach has been restored since our last visit making it the perfect place for us to stay for the month. Since we were there for an extended stay, we did use the well equipped kitchen and were happy to have a dishwasher, microwave and convection oven. We would definitely recommend this condo to friends and hope that we are able to return again soon.

Location, location, location. Have been coming here for years and it only gets better. The beach is restored and beautiful. Tony takes great pride in his beach home and it shows. The people are very friendly and treat you like family.

This is our fifth stay at Xaman-Ha. We have stayed in Tony's condo twice and it is always our preferred choice. The washer/dryer and updated kitchen are a nice bonus. The wireless helps us to keep in touch with family at home. Tony is helpful to work with and we have even worked with him on reservations of other condos when his is not available, or we needed a larger unit. We also enjoy the pool bar and the endless beach. It's so nice to not have to fight the crowds for a chair and to enjoy a family friendly location. Can't wait to return!

We really enjoyed this rental unit and highly recommend it to others.
It was well maintained, clean, and comfortable. It's in a nice complex right on the oceanfront and in an ideal location making it easy to walk to downtown Playa del Carmen at any time. As close as it was to town, we enjoyed and appreciated how quiet it was, the ammenities and the availability and assitance of concierge and manager.

We've stayed at Tony's 3 times and love the location. The beach, pool and gardens are right out front and provide excellent views from the deck. The pool bar and on site spa run by Marta are great. The condo is an easy walk to the ferry dock, town square and 5th avenue but still provides a quite and relaxing experience. The condo itself is well equiped, updated & clean. Overall, this is one of my favorite vacation spots.

We are so lucky to have found such a wonderful condo and owner that are looking to better the condo every year for you needs. I recommend this unit and you will not be disappointed at all.

This unit in Xaman-Ha has it all. Excellent location and facility, friendly staff, security, pool, beach, and fantastic view. In fact, Xaman-ha was the complex that inspired us to abandon our all-inclusive ways and rent a condo. We were not disappointed as this property offers easy access to Playa Del Carmen's 5th avenue restaurants and shops. Great spot for long beach walks, quiet.

Our stay was wonderful, we enjoyed coffee on the balcony every morning with spectacular views. Although we did not cook the condo offered everything you needed cookware, dishes, flatware, blender, coffee pot etc... beautiful beach, nice pool and well maintained grounds. Xaman Ha is just a 3 minute walk to everything!!! The ferry, resturants, shopping and bars. We have visited the area many times and Xaman Ha is by far the best!!! Thank you Tony for opening your home to us, we hope to visit again.

The location was absolutely perfect. A fabulous beach right as your front steps, 5 minute walk to Senor Frogs and 5th avenue, across the road from a Mayan Ruin, and walking access to viewing the beautiful homes of Playacar. We loved the location of this condo on the quiet beach of Playacar.
The pool(s) were very attractive and there was lots of deck chairs (no umbrellas). My only complaint with the pools is freezing cold. It was nice that there was so much pool deck that faced the ocean so not being able to use the pools didn't bother us. The front & security staff and cleaning lady (Estela) were absolutely great. Very friendly, very responsive. I have never seen a condo cleaned so well. It was nice, that in a week, Estela came there 3 times.
The condo was nice and roomy. A bit of a funny set-up with the laundry facilities being in the master bedroom. The toilet & bathtub area in the master was very cramped but the sink area and king size bed made the rest of the master roomy. The second bedroom had 2 beds and the safe.
The kitchen had been renovated. The counter a bit too high to work easily on, but then again, I didn't come to Mexico to cook full time. The condo was well appointed with flat-screen tv, dvd player and stereo. It was very comfortable and the view of the ocean and grounds were fabulous. The free wi-fi was a bonus.
Toni, the owner was great to deal with - no concerns nor problems.
I would highly recommend 7208 for rental. The price is good (except the price goes way up at Christmas), but the rest of the year it is very reasonable.

This was my first trip to Mexico and I did not know what to expect. I found a spotlessly clean condo, extremly well equipped a with terrific views in a perfect location. Don't know what else I could ask for. Will be back again soon.
