Great House in Playa del Carmen (Magia Playa 202F - MG202F)
Description from the manager
Playa Del Carmen is a highly favorable vacation destination for good reason. The fast growing city possesses every quality required for an exotic and memorable trip. Bustling with a plethora of dining and entertainment options, this safe, once sleepy fishing village attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year. Every variety of cuisine is offered in succulent restaurants which line the effervescent 5th Avenue. As well, world-class spas, dive centers, boutique stores, galleries, and quaint artisan shops lure both locals and tourists alike with their charming and magnetic appeal.
Throughout the state of Quintana Roo, an underground river system runs, creating freshwater swim holes called cenotes. Hundreds of these naturally formed, cave-like pools sporadically speckle the region and are ideal for exploring, even with young children. This part of the Caribbean also boasts some of the best dive sites in the world, beckoning long-time certified and novice divers alike to discover the majestic world beneath the sea. 3 adventure parks and lands of ancient civilizations marked by ruins offer daily tours from every hotel along the Mayan Riviera and are a fantastic way to spend the day and learn about the intriguing cultural aspects of the Mayan way of life.
Magia Playa is one of the choicest condo-hotels in the city sitting on over an acre of immaculate green space, with an expansive pool surrounded by towering palms. Situated just minutes from the translucent ocean waters bordered by a powdery-soft, white shoreline, this paradisiacal retreat will impress even the most fastidious of guests.
This sophisticated suite is saturated by the natural glow of the warm Mexican sun thanks to a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows which frame the picturesque views of the tremendous garden and awe-inspiring, turquoise sea. Marble floors are complemented by soothing earth tone and pale blue wall hues. The sleek granite countertops shine in the kitchen, which is equipped with upscale, stainless steel appliances, cookware and utensils. Two commodious bedrooms feature lavish furnishings including 2 double beds in the first, and a superior quality king in the master, each room with its own elegant bathroom. Additional amenities present within this chic unit are flatscreen satellite TVs, DVD player, washer/dryer, beach chairs, premium organic toiletries, linens, internet, underground parking, 24 hour security and a fitness facility looking onto the vast seascape.
Bric Vacation Rentals is proud to supply a mid stay clean, local cell phone with credit, bottled drinking water and a personal concierge. This knowledgeable Bric representative can assist with transportation and excursions details, as well as arrange dry cleaning, child minding and in-room massage service for an additional charge.

We stayed at this condo via Bric Rentals in November. They picked us up at Cancun airport and provided transportation to the unit w keys, a welcome package and a cell phone.
The location is unbeatable. Located equidistant between the beach & 5th ave (both about 100 yards away). Super easy to walk out front door and have immediate access to la playa or 5th ave. Super convenient.
Unit was really nice w 2 spacious bedrooms, and nice kitchen w granite counter tops, etc. Pool area is awesome - looked like some of the biggest grounds in Playa del Carmen based on a ton of other condos we have stayed at.
Would recommend to any of our friends, and plan on staying again in 2014.

The trip started off on the wrong foot when there was no one at the airport to pick us up, even though we had arranged for transportation with the condo rental company. One of the bedroom doors was broken so that our children got locked in the room if they ever accidentally closed the door, we put in a number of requests to have that fixed but no one ever showed up. There was mold on the ceiling in a number of the rooms.
We definitely expected better for the $500/night we paid.

Its my second time renting with Bric and my first time in Magia Playa, the department was really nice, all the services included was great!, beggining with the cleanning service and ending with the security of the building, the pool was great too, the only thing I need to say about the pool is the first day had the heating machine, and the rest of the days the water was cold, but overall, I'll come back, because all the stay was incredible

Great condo - near perfect location between beach and Quinta Av, plus two nice pools of its own.
Nice spacious feeling inside with modern amenities.
Excellent introduction and explanation by concierges.
Given local cell phones - very handy.
We had minor quibbles about some things - only got 4 towels instead of 5 for our family; soaps and shampoos too small for our family.

My friends and I had a great time in playa. Magia Playa 202F is a wonderful unit. Nice beach view and quiet. Nicely appointed and quite clean. The complex is a block away from 5th ave,which is ideal. I would recommend this condo for a stay in playa. My only minor criticism is the wood or sticks that are placed on the terrace, they actually ruin the posh architecture of the complex.

We had a great vacation to Playa del Carmen & a perfect stay @ Magia Play - 202F. The condo is located equidistant between 5th Avenue & the beach, offering easy access to everything.
The unit has a large outdoor balcony, which has a beautiful 180 degree ocean view. Perfect for coffee in the morning, or cocktails in the afternoon.
Great setup with large master bedroom, and 2nd bedroom with two larger beds (all really comfortable!). Really nice kitchen with granite counter tops, and stainless steel applicances. Condo had really open floorplan, which made it perfect for entertaining friends.
Two great pools with one of the most beautiful courtyards we've seen at any location in Playa.
Had great maid service, and help from BRIC. In addition to concierge service, they also had a really detailed book with plenty of suggestions for restaurants, activities, etc.
Bottom-line - would recommend Magia Playa 202-F to anyone. Can't wait to go back!

We arrived to Sunny Cancun and upon exiting the airport we found a man
holding a sign with our names. Bric had arranged all transport to and from
the airport. The van was clean and the driver was great, giving us good
information on what to do and see the whole way to the condo. Bric Rental
also helped us arrange a fantastic day trip to Yal Ku lagoon! Our concierge
Rene was very helpful and made some good recommendations.
The unit we stayed in 202F was fantastic. Located steps from the beach and
5th ave we couldnt have asked for a better location. The unit was tastefully
decorated and really felt like our home after the first day. The rooms and
baths were great and the beds were so comfortable it was hard for us to
leave in the morning!
All the appliances were modern and new and the place was really
comfortable. We cooked a few meals in the unit and found everything we
needed there or just a block away....so convenient.
We enjoyed sunsets on the patio overlooking blue and green Caribbean
waters every day, and took advantage of the modern workout facilities
overlooking the pool. The pool area is very chic with white sofas and beds
all around, 2 pools, a bar area and BBQ. Just what we needed after a few
long days at the beach and sight seeing.
We just loved this place! We will be returning soon to Playa del Carmen and
we have finally found a place we can call home a few times a year. Great
rental! Great service!

I was quite pleased with the service offered by BRIC. Since you first arrive at their offices you notice the attention and kindness of the whole staff. BRIC has everything quite organized and thinks of all your needs during your stay. The penthouse was exactly as pretty as the pictures online. Excellent maintenance and cleanliness.
I was highly satisfied and pleased.
Thank you very much for your kind feedback. I will be sure to extend your review to our entire staff as they work diligently to make sure all of our properties are well maintained for your pleasure.
We sincerely appreciate your accolades and hope that we can once again serve you in the future.
Sincere regards from your Family in Playa del Carmen,

The complex is interesting architecturally, but suffers as many condos do in Mexico from semi-shoddy finishing and maintenance. One of the key reasons we selected this condo was the air-conditioned fitness centre overlooking the pool area. One of the large glass doors in the fitness centre was completely missing, and as a consequence the air conditioning was turned off during our entire stay...the temperature was as high or higher than outside during the day (low to mid-30s celsius). Used a bar from one of the pieces of the equipment in the gym (good weights and machines BTW) to turn on the two ceiling mounted air conditioners, which brought the temperature down a few degrees by the end of the workout, but the situation was not as advertised. Elevator in the part of the complex we were in didn't work 4 out of the 5 days we were there, which meant hauling suitcases and dive gear up a couple of flights of stairs. Pools are shallow and little shade available (other than a couple of portable umbrellas) so hanging out poolside in the heat of summer wasn't that attractive a proposition. Unit itself was quite large, but somewhat sparsely and cheaply furnished. Strong smell of cleaning/pesticide chemicals in the unit throughout the stay, which dissipated somewhat the days the maid didn't come (mentioned it to the staff at the local rental office). Master suite bed was comfortable enough, but second bedroom twin beds were typically Mexican hard/uncomfortable. Well located a half block from the beach and far enough off 5th Avenue to be quiet at night. Frosted glass walls off the living room/kitchen are a nice design touch, but resulted in all noise from the common stairwell and other units being transmitted directly into living area. Had some trouble with the rental agent (BRIC) billing for transportation from Cancun to Playa that we didn't use, but it was resolved and credit card was refunded.
