The four of us have all expressed a deep desire to return to Playa (hopefully sooner than later!). When we do, I can assure you'll be hearing from us to hopefully take up residence at Chac-Ha #203! Thank you again for being so great to work with and making this vacation a dream.
Best to you Gordon--Mark and Julie
Dear Gordon, We have just returned from your piece of paradise! I am so grateful for you and VRBO. I really can't imagine going back to the resort style vacation with the small rooms and crowds all the time. The condo was absolutely perfect. It was cheerful, clean and comfortable. The view was amazing, we loved the privacy and always felt safe. Our son and his wife were in one room which was far enough from us to feel like we had our own house, yet the common areas were spacious, festive and fun to share. Thank you for providing all the bottled water that we needed. We were very appreciative of the private Chac-Ha pool. It was quiet and beautiful and we barely shared it with anyone else. We saved money by shopping for simple breakfast and lunch items, but ate out in town every night. We went to the Reef Resort every day for the beach for free- thanks!

We had a great time staying at the Paxman condo this November. It's a comfortable, attractive and well equipped condo in a well maintained complex. The pool area is a nice place for relaxing. The complex is within walking distance to the main restaurant & shopping area of Playa del Carmen (5th ave)and an inexpensive taxi ride if you are too tired to walk 15 minutes. Having Dish Network us television and reliable wifi was a plus. We also appreciated the tips offered by the friendly couple that oversee the condo. If we get back to Playa del Carmen, we'll happily book this place again.

Our family with two girls (10 and 13) had a wonderful time. Playacar itself is a safe, clean and picturesque resort village full. The condo is very convenient with only a 15-minute walk or $5 us cab ride to 5th avenue, a Mecca of shops, restaurants and bars to last a lifetime. Supermarkets are also within easy reach. Condo itself is quiet, very spacious and well equipped. It felt like a home to come back to every day. Reef Hotel across the road is stunning with great white beach. We only had one buffet meal there, which was ok. Watch out for the time-share sharks! There is a nice small pool with the condo, which was empty most of the time, The Reef has a bigger pool (2) and comes with frenetic entertainment staff that out on exercise programmes and pool games. No kids club though. Eating out in 5th avenue at most of the restaurants is going to cost about $250 pesos per head for main course, drinks and a dessert. Watch out for your bill. We got overcharged a few times and had to make a little British scene. Gordon was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful the whole time. Staff at the condo is very friendly and provide security as well as keeping the gardens blooming. There are loads of things to do in the surrounding area, We stuck to the resort and only ventured to Xcaret, an environmental theme park which is a ten-minute cab ride away. It is brilliantly done with underground rivers to float down and swimming with dolphins. The latter is extra (a lot extra) but worth it all the same. We were here in July and the resort was lively but not at all busy due to the economic downturn and swine flu concerns. Great for us and no fighting over sun beds. It was mostly Mexicans and americans/Canadians on holiday here. Weather was hot and sunny and quite humid so we beached it in the mornings and sheltered inside for the siesta time, All in all, I cannot recommend this highly enough as a resort, place to stay and Gordon as your host.

We had an excellent time at the condo. This was the first time we rented a condo. We are a family of five which included two teenage boys and a six year old boy. Although not new, it was fairly large condo, well maintained, and situated in a perfect location within Playacar. We were on the top floor and the view of the golf course and pool from the balcony was nice. The swimming pool was excellent and rarely used. We used it daily. The neighbours were all very friendly and made us feel welcomed. It was a very quiet neighbourhood. We felt completely safe where ever we went. Directly across the street was a beautiful beach that was accessible through the Reef Resort. It was a spectacular beach. It was only a short walk to Playa del Carmen, approximately 15 minutes, and we were in the middle of the excitement of 5th avenue. We walked this at least once a day. The walk was beautiful. We also walked to access the Collectivo and ado transportation systems to get to certain locations that we toured such as Xel Ha, Xcaret, Crococun Zoo. This made it easy to budget for a family. Also, along this walk to Playa del Carmen, there is a turn off through the park area along side some Mayan ruins, that leads to a large and beautiful public beach. When we arrived at our condo we had a few issues that caused us concern. However, we contacted the owner of the property and the issues were resolved very quickly. We were extremely impressed on how quickly it was resolved and we were treated extremely well by the lady maintaining the condo in the absense of the owner. We loved everything about it. The condo itself; the location (Playacar) is amazing; the proximity to PDC; and the owner/assistant of the condo were very accommodating. For these reasons we would not hesitate in renting, or recommend others, to rent this wonderful place.

We had a great time staying at the condo which is spacious and clean. Condo is right across from The Reef Resort which we had access to with the owners VIP card. Close to 5th avenue shops and restaurants, just a 15 minute walk from the condo. Great WiFi in the condo along with us cable channels we were able to watch the Olympic Games. Would definitely recommend.
