Room is ok for two/TVs need update and better cable/not comfortable couches-hard! room is garden view and patio doesn’t open to access. Close to Playa downtown and you can walk down to beach from room. Current construction next to condo with loud noise 7am to 7pm... will be noisy for at least 6 more months!
The gated community was very quaint... Small Mayan ruins, very close to the very aggressive 5th avenue, don't make eye contact & had to learn to be very thick skinned! A vendor actually grab my arm to enter his store! I bought nothing!!
Playa Del Carmen 5th avenue is at the height of true capitalism!
Xaman ha is a great complex. We have stayed there four times in the past decade, and (obviously) liked it every time. This spring we stayed in #7020. Of the condos we have enjoyed at Xaman ha, this is definitely the least desirable. There is a feeling that the owners do not spend time there, because no one would furnish their own place like this.
The king-sized bed is really a king-sized futon - not a big deal for me, but my wife's back did not appreciate it. Just something to know. The furnishings in the living room - two couches - also were not very comfortable. The other issue would be the location in the complex. #7020 is in a lower corner of the first floor, and was tucked away from the breezes during most of our stay.
Other than that, all the good things about Xaman ha were in evidence. The maid service was good, the beach and staff were wonderful. The location can't be beat. If you like the condo feeling without all the all-inclusive stuff, this is the place. We just know from experience that you can find much better condos in the complex than this one.
The condo was clean but very outdated. The bathroom has been changed but the lighting and shower curtain was not nice. The kitchen was small and storage was non existing and the kitchen has no oven. The furniture in the living area was extremely uncomfortable. I feel that the price was strictly because of the location, certainly not the condo itself. I would hesitate to recommend this particular condo because of all these things listed, but certainly the complex is spectacular. This was our 2nd visit to the complex and we hope to return.
