Villas Sacbe #8 is a luxury three bedroom, three bath penthouse condo in the heart of Playa del Carmen's Golden Zone. Located on 1st Avenue near 12th Street, Villas Sacbe is only about a block from the beach and about a block from the shopping and dining of 5th Avenue. It is no exaggeration to say there are probably fifty restaurants within a two block radius. Villas Sacbe is a smallish twelve unit complex with striking and unique architecture -- gentle curves abound rather than the squares and rectangles of a typical complex. The courtyard is filled with lush vegetation that surrounds the petite pool, jacuzzi, and reflection pond. Since being built in 2003, Villas Sacbe has received rave reviews from hundreds of guests. At night, the courtyard takes on a magic glow as the dramatic lighting highlights the stunning architecture.
Unit 8 is the largest of the units at Villas Sacbe and is filled with luxury features. All floors throughout are covered with gleaming tikul stone. The master bedroom on the lowest floor and living room directly above are round in shape with a large bank of windows overlooking the tropical courtyard. A striking teepee shaped grass thatch palapa roof covers the living room and the cute loft that extends part way over the living room. The kitchen was spec'd out with a custom design during construction and includes stainless commercial-for-the-home appliances from Viking and KitchenAid. Special "structured" data wiring was run throughout the villa during construction providing state-of-the-art data connectivity. You can plug your laptop into any of 22 cat5 data outlets throughout the villa or else connect to unit 8's own private wifi network if you want to stay connected to the real world during your vacation.
Although your focus won't be watching TV, we've found it relaxing to unwind with a nice movie at the end of the evening. In 2012 we swapped out the three tube TV's and DVD players with high quality LED LCD flat screen TV's and blu-ray players. The living room has a 47" flat screen while bedrooms one and two have 37" flat screens. All TV's and blu-ray players are internet connected with access to a Netflix account for the villa as well as an in-house library of 100+ DVDs. Each of the three levels of the villa has a spacious outdoor terrace that overlooks the courtyard. All three bedrooms are furnished with high thread count sheets and comfortable mattresses and pillows. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes/pans/blenders/etc in case you decide to prepare some meals in and there is an in-suite washer and dryer for your convenience.
As mentioned, Villas Sacbe is in the heart of the action. A few steps out the door and you are right there for all the shopping and dining of 5th Avenue. This includes a vibrant night club scene that continues into the wee hours of the morning -- so you should be aware of that in case you prefer something more off the beaten path. Unit 8 is tucked into the far back corner of the complex, so is more shielded from street noise than any other unit in the complex. Unit 8 has received many, many rave reviews from hundreds of guests during the ten years we have been in operation -- we know you will enjoy your stay with us.TripAdvisor property ID 3353817...Read more

I've had the pleasure of staying at Villas Sacbe #8 a good half dozen times over the past 3 years and highly recommend it. The location couldn't be better - right in the heart of the central Playa del Carmen action. Restaurants, shops, and the beach are right there. The villa itself is great and is very nicely appointed with everything we need - well stocked kitchen, beach towels, internet, flat screen TVs, etc. Our gang always has a great time.
