In addition to the great rooms and views and pool You have a beach, this one is recovering from Hurricane Ivan, but it had just been through 4 days before, so, not bad huh? Looking down the beach you can see the start of the town of Playa del Carmen and the Ferry dock to Cozumel. Another thing, and I don't know if this is by design or just luck. No beach vendors!!
I have read other places that the pool can get croweded in high season. I have never seen that happen. Look at that, pool and caribbean are the same color!
We always have a great time at Xaman-Ha. Just two blocks away from the hustle, bustle, music and restaurants on 5th. In Mid September a large portion of the beach was missing due to the Hurricane which traveled between the Yukatan and Florida. No damage in Playa, but heavy surf and lots of rain. We could see the Beach actually coming back after our 4 days there.
Unique Quality: Decor unique to every unit, each unit different from the next. We stayed one night in a one bedroom, which is plenty for two people, three could even fit comfortably, we decided to splurge and stay a couple of nights in a three bedroom penthouse..which was INCREDIBLE. Two stories, two balconies, huge master bedroom with ocean view. A family could stay here a week and not get on each others nerves...amazing place. for what you get here, it's worth every penny, and less expensive than the really nice hotels in town.
Directions: On the water, just two blocks south of 5th Ave. Ask directions
Our condo was a five minute stroll from the pier, down a few steps and we were at the beach or the pool, no matter what time we wanted to get up, there was a coffee pot there so we could have our coffee
It was a three bedroom condo with a kingsize bed, 2 full size beds, 2 single beds, and a couch that made out into a bed. There was a nice size livingroom/diningroom and a kitchen. There were 2 full bathrooms with tubs and hot water. The small balcony overlooked the pool.
We couldn't have wished for anything better.
Unique Quality: Beautiful pool and beach. Great views and near town.
Near all the restaurants, shops and ferry to Cozumel. But it's just far enough away to have peace and quiet.
Good for children. Nice staff, great pool and right infront of a beautiful stretch of beach. All condos have an ocean view.
Unique Quality: Great pool and all condos have an ocean view.
Directions: Playacar neighborhood by the pier and ferry to Cozumel.
This is a perfect place to be close to it all and yet removed enough for peace and quiet. This year our condo was on the second floor allowing an even better view of the ocean. The pool is never packed, you will always find a lounge (at least in low season). People come here to relax, not get out of control.
Unique Quality: We just love this place. The price quoted below is per person,, not per night, for a one bedroom condo in low season.
We had a one bedroom ocean front condo which was close to perfect! Yes, I did sort of miss the hotel style swim up bar and cabana boys bringing the drinks, but the price was great for what we got. An ocean view living room, small patio, large bedroom, full kitchen and all within two blocks of the main shopping and dining area of Playa Del Carmen.
Unique Quality: Two pools perfect for cooling off in, and just beyond that, that white sand that the Yucatan is famous for. Cancun tries to lay claim to it, but it's every where!
It's also easy walking distance to the Cozumel ferry. You can ALMOST see it the photo. Look for the tip of a boat on the left hand side of the photo, it's right there.
