We loved Condo del Arbol! Our stay was perfect! My wife and I stayed here last year, and we decided to return this year with the kids. The location next to the beach is great, and we loved spending relaxing afternoons in the hammock on the balcony. We hope to be back again next year! regards, Donald

Owners response: Dear Donald,
It was my pleasure to have you and your family stay at our Condo del Arbol.
Thank you so much for choosing it again and welcome back anytime. I,m glad the kids enjoyed the condo,the pool and our complex. It is fortunate that we are next to one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on the Riviera Maya.
Warm Regard,

Beautiful get away, beautiful condo!

Review submitted: June 13, 2014   Date of arrival: May 31, 2014

This was my second stay in Condo del Arbol and once again everything was just perfect! The condo is beautiful, spacious, very well equipped and tastefully decorated. We felt very much at home and very much prefer this over staying at a hotel or resort. The location is absolutely ideal: steps from the beach and only minutes from 5th Avenue and numerous great restaurants and shops.

The owner, Cheryl, was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed for a carefree and relaxing stay.

We will definitely stay here again and strongly recommend this condo to anyone contemplating a holiday in Playa del Carmen.

Owners response: Hi Robert,
Thank you for choosing our Condo del Arbol, again ,for your vacation this year.
We enjoyed hosting you and you are welcome back anytime.
I know how busy you can be when returning to 'reality ',so very much appreciate you taking the time to write this nice review to my VRBO/Homeway sites.

Absolutely Fabulous condo and vacation

Review submitted: June 13, 2014   Date of arrival: March 8, 2014

I stayed in Cheryl's condo for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of the stay. It is convenient for the beach and 5th Avenue for shopping and restaurants. The pool is fabulous and never fact many days I was the only person in the pool. The unit and the complex is like a private oasis to which without hesitation I will return. Cheryl is very pleasant and ensures guests are comfortable. Playa del Carmen itself is a great vacation spot unlike many others in Mexico not too crowded.

Awesome stay and location! Great for families.

Review submitted: June 3, 2014   Date of arrival: May 4, 2014

My family loved staying here. The location to the beach and town are very convenient. We have our favourite spots to dine out or just go for a snack! My teenager loves to shop on Fifth Avenue and my toddler is happy to stroll along or push the stroller! The pool is ideal for everyone and we love having the option to walk the beach or take shade back at the pool. Our favourite excursion is Xel-Ha - we go every year! Thanks to Cheryl for being so accommodating and helpful. Hope to be back in the summer!

Owners response: Julia,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. So glad you enjoyed our Condo del Arbol again.
Welcome back anytime ,we will always make you feel at home but by the beach and seaside.

Great vacation!

Review submitted: January 31, 2014   Date of arrival: January 7, 2014

My girlfriends and I really enjoyed our stay at Cheryl's condo. She was extremely accommodating very responsive to any inquiries we had before, and during, our stay.

The condo was very spacious. We especially enjoyed the very large balcony where we had breakfast every morning. The kitchen was well equipped and had pretty much everything we needed to make meals.

The location of the condo was great - only a couple minutes walk to the beach. It was also walking distance to all the action (15mins to the nightclubs, 5 minutes down the beach to Mammita's and Kool Beach, 2 minutes to restaurants). But at the same time, was far enough removed from the craziness for when we wanted our peace and quiet.

I would definitely stay here again.

Owners response: Jill and friends,
Thank YOU so much. It is my pleasure to be accommodating to our guests. I am happy you loved your Playa del Carmen vacation and especially happy that you were comfortable and enjoyed our Condo del Arbol.
It was our pleasure to host you and it is good to know that you will choose Condo del Arbol to which to return for another stay.
I want to say thanks,also to you, for taking the time to write this review as, I am lucky to receive many nice emails about our condo,personally ,but it is better when our guests submit them also ,to my VRBO and HomeAway sites for other prospective renters to read.
Warm Regards,

Great Escape From Wisconsin

Review submitted: May 1, 2013   Date of arrival: March 27, 2013

Dear Cheryl: we want to thank you for opening your condo to us for our break from mounds of snow in Wisconsin. Everything was just as you promised. No need to go beyond the local area. Everything is right there. We would not have wanted to walk the distance to the Mega Store. With so much to see and do along the way a round trip would have taken our easily distracted family a few hours! The beach is an easy stroll out the door, out the gate, a few steps down and the sand is in your toes. Don't bother with the beach clubs...take your umbrellas and chairs and you are good to go in less than ten minutes. Can't remember the name of the little condo/huts right there, but the bar and restaurant there was more than happy to mix drinks for us to take right out to our chairs. I could not grasp the distances to various places on the Internet before we got there so we fretted whether to rent a car..don't recommend it. All you have to do is walk to the corner and cabs are waiting to take you anywhere. Only about $20US dollars to get to Xcaret, and less than 15 minutes to get there. Walk down a few blocks and you are on 5th ave. Fun awaits you, literally, within minutes everywhere you go. And the comfortable, amply stocked condo awaits you when you return. The security guards were always waiting with a smile to welcome us in and out so we always felt safe but also felt 100% safe walking wherever we went. The girls enjoyed making videos in front of the murals as if they were under water diving with the fish!!! We will be recommending your condo very often in the years to come and hope to come back soon too. Gracias from WI

We Hope To Come back Soon!

Review submitted: April 25, 2013   Date of arrival: March 19, 2013

I have meaning to write to you. We had a wonderful time.The condo was clean and true to the pictures.Our daughter loved the pool and even met another girl to pal around with(her grand parents own a ground level unit).The beach was wide and not too terribly crowded except for Easter Sunday.We really appreciated the umbrella and chairs since other places we had none and had to rent which was costly.Even met some snowbirds who taught us how to secure them with rope and sandbag.We walked to the Mega grocery store at least 3 times for provisions.I really liked the bakery section and my daughter thought the escalators for the carts were cool. For meals out ,we enjoyed El Fagon,El Pirata and Carboncito's.Over all a fantastic and relaxing week.We hope to come back soon.

Enjoyable Stay again at Your Condo del Arbol

Review submitted: April 20, 2012   Date of arrival: April 1, 2012

Hi Cheryl, we enjoyed our second stay in your Condo Arbol,A 201, even more(if possible)for our week's vacation this year. Loved the new furniture and the addition of the mosquito screens. We were able to enjoy the sea breezes at night and were able to sleep with the windows open. We do appreciate how you obviously replenish your linens and all the new towels,there are even new bedspeads. Reminds us of a 5 star hotel.The condo was immaculatly clean,your maid is amazing.Wish we had her in Canada! Please always keep that hammock,it is SO comfortable! We are already looking forward to returning next year and then for two weeks as one week only wetted our appetites for more of that relaxing feeling that we get when we have stayed there both times and want more of. We think it is because of the tropical and Mexican flavour you have kept in Condo del Arbol ,which makes one feel like they are truly on holiday and away from all the stresses of their working environment.
Thanks. Big hug.

Great Condo, Great Location

Review submitted: August 16, 2010   Date of arrival: July 31, 2010

We just finished a week in Playa at Natz Ti Ha and had a wonderful time. The condo is large and clean with excellent furnishings and a great Mexican feel. With two big bedrooms both with ensuites, it's great for families or 2 couples. It's a very short walk to a beautiful beach, with great snorkeling feet from the shore. Also a short walk away is 5th Ave where you have tons of restaurants and lots of shopping. The kids loved the pool, clean and lots of lounges or the Mom’s and Dad’s. The staff on the property are clearly visible and always willing to lend a hand. Absolutely no complaints, all around excellent property and fabulous time.
We will be back for sure!

Will Highly Recommend Condo del Arbol.

Review submitted: March 29, 2010   Date of arrival: December 20, 2009

We had a fantastic time and were well taken care of by Miquel(the guard) and the rest of the staff. My son ,accidentally locked us out and Veronika,your property manager for Condo del Arbol,was there in 10 minutes .Now that's service!I will definately recommend Condo del Arbol and the complex to anyone who asks and hopefully we get the oppurtunity to use it again.
Cheryl,thanks for the follow up and happy 2010 as well.

Perfect Condo for a Family

Review submitted: March 29, 2010   Date of arrival: March 20, 2010

We just returned from a week at Condo del Arbol and all we can think about is going back. The condo is extremely well located, about a half block from one of the most perfect beaches we've every visited, minutes from some very good restaurants (Cuevo del Chango and Piola were among our favorites and each is a very short walk from the condo) and a short walk to the bustling 5th Avenue shopping and dining area. The condo is spacious, comfortable and well-maintained. Having 2 bathrooms with a family of 4 is a real treat. We pretty much lived on the beautiful veranda and had to set time limits on how long each person could be in the hammock to avoid fighting over it. It was so comfortable. We felt very safe in all of Playa del Carmen and especially at the Natz Ti Ha. Everytime we came or went from the building, there were staff members nearby. The landscaping is incredible, allowing for a great deal of privacy. The pool is great and a nice place to chat with others staying in the condos. We got good restaurant recommendations that way. Cheryl, the owner, was very professional and responsive to all of our questions in the time leading up to our stay. I went running several times while in Playa and never saw anywhere that I would have liked to stay more than the Natz Ti Ha. We would highly recommend Playa del Carmen, the Natz Ti Ha and Condo del Arbol to anyone visiting Playa del Carmen.

The beach is the best in Playa and it's wonderful that you are so close,walking, to Playa's 5th Ave with all those restaurants and shopping yet away from the madding crowds. We shall definately be back.Thanks, Julia,Richard,Maya.
