    You have everything you could ned. Kitchen fully equiped. Living room with a/c and ltv. Eve n a balcony. The room and bathroom are really nice. Klaus is really kind and is there when you call him. Big option of places to eat near tourist and some others with locals. Mega suprmarket really close and the fresh juices.Nativo just in the corner

    Location is perfect, 7 mins from 5th avenue, a very good beach and a supermarket (it's important to have the latter close since groceries are overprized elsewhere)

    No credit card payment. Despite being specified in the website, it is not accettable in a place like Playa, where everybody has it

    There was a shutter in the bedroom, the bed was really comfortable. Often get fresh towels. Klaus and Maria were very kind and helpful. :)

    I prefer shelves more, than hangers

    We liked everything! Apartment was very clean and has all you need for short or long stay. Good location, safe and quiet, easy to find. Close to everything (5-15 minutes to walk): beach, 5th Avenue with shopping and entertainment, supermarkets. Special words about hosts Klaus and Mariella. After one day you start to feel like they are your family long-time friends! Especially Klaus was so great and always willing to help. He even hired a taxi for us, as we figured out later almost twice cheaper than regular tourist price. We definitely will stay there again! Thanks Klaus and Mariella!

    The hosts were amazingly friendly, felt nice to have the feeling of an apt. Rental.Good sized kitchen and a nice big bed.

    There seemed to be a water pump right next to the bed room. It would go off during random times through the night. If you are a light sleeper you can probably asked to be moved to a different unit. Ours were unit 2. Ground floor.

    First rate apartment, and a great value. Klaus and Mariella are fantastic hosts. The apartment was well furnished and equipped, with a large balcony off the living area, and a small one off the bedroom. We recommend it heartily, and will definitely be back

    Klaus, the owner, is very friendly, very relaxed and very willing to help you if you should need anything. We liked a lot that the apartment is in a nice residential area outside of the resort and party madness of Playa del Carmen.

    There were quite a few small insects (ants? we're not sure) in the apartment.

    We loved the reception given to us by Klaus and Mariella. They were there to greet us upon arrival. Klaus is very attentive and helpful. Great suggestions especially for eateries. The upstairs suites are very pleasing. We enjoyed dinning and emailing on the balcony. The beds are exceptional. The suites are very clean and the location is quiet. This is good value for your money. .

    Very nice, inexpensive apartments. Everything looked like described on the website. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Klaus showed us around the area, answered questions we had about tourist destinations and helped us arrange transport back to the airport. We even got a cute little bowl with apartment name as a goodbye gift. Would highly recommend and hopefully we'll be back.

    I guess the only thing that bothered us was the lack of privacy on the apartment's balcony. It's not very well separated from the neighboring balcony so we didn't feel comfortable sitting there when the neighbors were out on theirs. It wasn't much of an inconvenience though, we preferred to go out anyways.

    It's really close to the 5th avenue & the beach. Really comfortable apartment bigger than lots of apartments in Amsterdam. They gave us a room in ground level because we have a kid with us. That was toughtful. Both Maria& Klaus are very nice people. There are really close shops where you can buy breakfast items and you can have whatever you like. There is a toaster and coffee machine.

    The managers are warm, friendly, and helpful. They even arranged for a massage therapist to come to our apartment, and our massages were amazing! The location is perfect. We loved out stay.

    We have been in Playa del Carmen before but we like Viva Maria more than others places we used for residence there. We will come back again. The location is very good, close to the sea, shopping and 5 avenues. The apartment was clean, fresh and many thanks to Mariella for that (and Klaus to). In the garden is a place for BBQ and the kitchen in the apartment has everything you need if you want to fix your meal if you like. Parking is free of charge.

    1. great location: 10-15 min walk to everywhere, including the beach, super markets, restaurants and downtown, but located in a quite and safe residential area 2. full kitchen: not a token kitchen, but a FULL kitchen with stoves, oven, micro wave oven, pots, pans and a large refrigerator 3. in-room safe: large enough for a laptop 4. wifi: each apartment has its own wifi antenna. it shows how the owners have thought of just about everything!!! you will find an umbrella and portable tables in the apartment. not to mention the spacious bedroom and two separate AC units. the owners are very, very friendly and so willing to help. i have been to quite a few places in central america. i wish all my future stays will be as good as this one. i will definitely stay here again when i am back to playa and recommend to all my friends and families. thank you, Mariella and Klaus.

    Klaus speaks good english. but you may experience a bit of a language barrier in your initial e-mail exchanges. not to worry. all is good. and btw the couple lives right next door.

    Really everything. The owners are an Italian couple, absolutely lovely and helpful. We had a problem with the rental car (it wouldn't start) on the day of departure, and the owner took care of everything: make the calls, wait beside the car for some help to come, and basically forced us to go to the beach and still enjoy our last morning in Mexico. The apartment is super clean and tidy, well decorated, brand new, with a king size comfortable bed, very well located... I could go on and on, this place is truly amazing. For such a price, you need to stay at Viva Maria in Playa del Carmen!

    The tv was not working for some reason. Without us even needing to ask the owner had a technician come and see the problem, but the it didn't get fixed. Oh well, a lot of things to do in Playa del Carmen than watch tv ;-)

    We had a very great time staying in Viva Maria. The owners Klaus and Mariella were just amazing. Super friendly and very natural. Sometimes we found in other places a kind of formal, not very personal friendlyness, but with Klaus and Mariella we felt from the first moment at home. They care the apartments with a lot of love. Everything was very clean,well equipped and well maintained. The apartments have everything what you need, even for a longer stay. We reached the beached in an 10 - 15 minutes walk, crossing the 5th avenue. So it is close to life, but not noisy. Grazie, Klaus e Mariella!

    You have to know that the apartment is more in a residential area and not directly in front of the beach. But knowing this, we were glad to experience a less touristic part of Playa.

    The location of the flat is very good - close to the 5th avenue, restaurants, the beach; yet at the same time it's quiet and peaceful. The owners live nearby and are very helpful and kind. The kitchen is well-equipped, so you can make your own meals if you wished to do so. The little patio takes you to the garden and looks lovely too.

    It's a great flat but it could have been cleaner. Especially bathroom.

    The hosts where very helpful and friendly.Got up at 5am to make sure we caught the airport bus. Flat was well equipped and tastefully decorated

    Our ground floor flat smells of damp.

    Great lay out of the apartment. Close to supermarket and good cafes and restaurants that aren't blingin cancun style like on 5th ave.

    Not enough cleaning products. Couch is uncomfortable to sit on (especially if you are stuck inside all day as it is raining)
