The apartment had been beautifully renovated. We loved it!!

I recently stayed in apartment 5. I prefer 5-star hotels when I travel, and in Playa del Carmen have always stayed at Hilton, or Hyatt but I was going to be in town for a while with my family and wanted something a bit larger and cheaper. However, a few years ago I tried another apartment but was very disappointed.

On this trip, I was absolutely pleased. The apartment has just been fully renovated to a very high European standard, the size is massive, the furniture is new and quite comfortable, the kitchen was perfect. And the owner arranged for daily cleaning at a very low charge - which was an unexpected but greatly appreciated. This apartment compares well, in some ways better, than the 5-star hotels.

The apartment had been beautifully renovated. A new king size bed in main room provided a very comfortable nights sleep. Large 55 inch flat screen tv provided a comfy night in. Spa bath in main bathroom was lovely. Easy flat 5 minute walk to restaurants, shopping. Extremely quite wake to sounds of birds. Will definitely be back loved the apartment.

Very clean and well decorated. Beds very comfortable. A little far from beach but easy walk. Can't beat the price. Only complaint is low water pressure in shower. Rental company was also great.
Fantastic apartment-even better than described.

What a fantastic apartment. We loved the location and the apartment was gorgeous. Beds and wifi were just perfect and the layout was well suited to traveling with two teenagers in that we were all able to have our own space. Big thumbs up!
Very Clean and Spacious

The Property description was totally accurate. The layout and amenities were what was described in the add. It was clean and we had weekly cleaning provided. The management company was available by email for any requests for water refill etc. We did totally enjoy the restraunts 5 star in proximity and laundry facility just minutes away. A short walk to the beach and of course the famous 5th Avenue. Location was a key factor for our choice and this met all requirements.
Wanderful stay

Private but loud on occasion

We loved this unit and it’s relative privacy compared to comparable units in this price range. Plenty of space, all staff is friendly and helpful and the Aldea Thai complex is gorgeous. However, unit 1101(101) requires some noise tolerance that is beyond the ability of the management to control. In the morning the metal tanks for (we think) soda machines and dive boats are delivered and they make a substantial metallic thunk as they’re unloaded onto the street. Then about an hour later a dump truck arrives to empty the dumpsters just inside the parking garage, accompanied by the back-up beep, large truck and dumping sounds. We wanted to be up about the time of day anyway, so we stayed to make breakfast and get ready for the day while that happened. Much louder and longer were the dance club noises coming from Coralina at the Hyatt about 5 afternoons a week. We could see the club entrance from our patio but there are nice screening plants around the pool so we never felt on display but enjoyed people-watching the kids who lined up to get into the ‘daylight ‘ club. That means there’s some level of club noise that starts around 1:00 and ends by about 5:00. The loud times were from about 2:30-4:30, times we were usually at the beach or big pool or somewhere else. Even then, there were only a couple of days out of our 3 weeks when the club noise became intolerable for a half hour or so. I’m talking midtown Manhattan during morning rush with sirens from a five-alarm fire followed by a bank robbery loud. Fortunately the club closes around 5:00 pm, and it isn’t always that crazy loud. In retrospect, ALL of Playa around 5th is fairly loud in the afternoon and evening. Good news, most of the loud restaurants’ on 5th and side streets turn things down by 9-10 at night. So if you’re planning lots of peace and quiet on your vacation, Playa del Carmen near 5th is not for you. However, we love being so close to the b
Great spot - pity about the pool being renovated

Everything was great except that the pool with bar was closed for renovations. We were told prior to arrival, but were not given the option to cancel our booking.
great stay!

Great location, steps away to the beach... 2 blocks to all the bars, shops and restaurants. The room also had your own personal plunge pool so that was a bonus!! Used what's app to communicate with host, great turn around time, will definitely stay again!

overall good - plunge pool very dirty and unusable, safe was also not working, but neither were deal killers, nice unit showing starting to get a little shabby but clean and overall a good value

We travelled to Playa del Carmen as scheduled since november 2019 and we felt welcomed by the staff who provided us all we needed to feel comfortable. The apartment is precious with a huge terrace with private pool where we enjoyed most of the time we stayed there. The city offers a thousand options to receive food for delivery and the management offered also a grocery service with a small delivery fee!! We highly recommend them and this beautiful unit!!
El condo esta increíble, mas la alberca privada, nos encanto!!

Karina Debora S.
La habitacion tenia su alberca privada con luz, los cuartos muy amplios y cocina lista para preparar comida, el area de alberca muy relax. Al estar a un lado de la playa es una ventaja de este edificio otro punto a favor es que hay restaurantes y oxxos en la parte baja del hotel. Quinta avenida queda a menos de 5 minutos caminando!!!!

Se adaptaron totalmente a nuestras necesidades y Daniel es un tipazo; nos brindó la mejor de las atenciones siempre súper amable, a todas horas y con las mejores recomendaciones ever ❤️
Cannot recommend it highly enough.❤️

The property is amazing! The beds are super comfortable and the place is so clean. I absolutely love being minutes from the beach and Parrilla Urbana is a must stop. Will definitely be back for sure! This was my all time favorite vacation. The room was more than I could have hoped for with great decor, comfortable beds and linens.We are so grateful for the wonderful memories we will have at this beautiful place and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Superbe établissement, à 5 minutes à pied de la plage Mamita's avec la Quinta Avenida à deux pas. Certains des meilleurs etablissements dans lesquels nous avons reservé et dans lesquels il ne faut pas s'attendre au Mexique ! Chambres très grandes, très propres et tout ce dont nous avions besoin.Excellent emplacement, magnifique établissement. Belle terrasse avec une piscine privée tout est très sûr et sécurisé.Hôte extrêmement serviable et accommodant
Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour !J'ai hâte d'y retourner! Je le recommande vivement!

Response from Playa Moments

Good afternoon Jose Manuel, We'd like to thank you for taking the time to evaluate your experience with us and we are a bit surprise dof receiving this comment since during the time frame of your vacations the building was not suffering any kind of renovation or constructions as mentionned, possibly there was a confusion with the staff working 24/7 to keep the building cleaned and 100% functional. We hope you had all in all a good vacations and we hope we get the chance to host you again in one of our properties and to exceed that time your expectations! Warm regards from Playa Moments.
Exceeded our expectations in every way.

This lovely spacious and well appointed apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. having two young children, we made good use of the well appointed kitchen rather than eating out every meal, but the restaurants we tried were generally good and you'd be spoilt for choice by the concierge at Playa Moments offerings and many local restaurants within easy walking distance if you did decide to eat out exclusively.
The pool was good to have although we spent much of the time at the pool just yards from the apartment or at the very pleasant beach just a few hundred yards away. I can't overstate the convenience of the location or how lovely the apartment and our vacation was. We've built some lovely family memories and I'd highly recommend this apartment both to families or a fabulously spacious apartment for a romantic get away. You're sure to be impressed, we certainly were. We also enjoyed the PRIVATE POOL and the terrace. If you need anything contact the Playa Moments concierge, he will help you for sure!!
Excelente estadía en Playa del Carmen!

The check in process was easy and quick. The location is perfect, close to the beach and a short walk to 5th avenue. The bed was really big and so so comfortable. We found it hard to get up every morning! The front concierge was extremely helpful with directions and recommendations of places to eat and visit. We will come back again!

The location of the condo is excellent. It was clean, and the beds were comfortable. We did not like the bathrooms not the kitchen. All of the drains were very slow, and it took several tries to get the toilets to flush.
Large well appointed apartment with sea views.
Review Date: 02/24/2018
As soon as we arrived the greeting and service provided by the agency manager Playa Moments was superb. Then there was the apartment, absolutely stunning, spacious, clean, light and airy.
The breeze coming through the sliding doors off the balcony cooled the whole apartment.
The view from the balcony was really beautiful, blue water through a mirror water pool with small waves gently breaking on the beach.
The vista was nice.
I can't imagine a better place to stay.
Well done.
Special stay !

Escape! that's the word we had in our head during these hard months and we did it!! we escaped!! and found this incredible property steps to the beach ( unfortunately restricted) but we had the chance to have a rest somewhere else not home! stay at the pool and enjoy the sun! the apartment were found perfectly cleaned and with bath amenities for our getaway, the staff at the lobby and from the management always attemtpive to all our requests and our zero-contact self check-in was great since we had all the information we needed to get in!! it was a fantastic experience in mid-quarantine and we would be more than happy to book again with playa moments as soon as this pass!! great job guys!!
We had a great time and loved the condo.❤️

Great view. Everything we needed for a great week at the beach was provided. Condo was very clean, comfortable beds, & a well stocked kitchen. Roger was the best we’ve ever rented from. He was quick to answer any question! Would definitely rent this condo again.

We had a great time and loved the condo. It was perfect for us! Playa Moments was very responsive to questions and concerns!! Would highly recommend!!

We are delighted in every way. Aldea Thai is wonderful.

The check in efficient and friendly, the building is beautiful and on the street you will find shops, cafes and restaurants in easy walking distance as is the beach. The balcony in the apartment has a nice outlook with an ocean view .
The apartment is spacious, beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Playa Moments have thought of everything you need and was spotlessly clean and well maintained. We are delighted in every way.
We have booked to go back again already.
Departamento con excelente ubicación y muy comodo!!

El departamento esta super amplio las habitaciones muy limpias y comodas, lo unico que no estaba bien era el aire acondicionado de la recamara principal, porque hacia mucho ruido, en general todo muy bien, la ubicación excelente queda a solo 1 cuadra de playa mamitas y a 3 cuadras de la 5 avenida, cuando regrese seguro vuelvo a aldea thai!!
Maravilloso Lugar

Aldea Thai just GREAT a few steps from the Beach
Review Date: 02/19/2018
We stayed at Aldea 132 by Playa Moments, right next to the beach, and in the center of the town.
Our room were very good, big, bright and comfortable is facing to the other side but the apartment was very clean.

The great and service oriented staff, made our stay really joyfull.
Everytime we needed something, they could provide it, and with a big smile. :-)

They were all very nice; but I were mostly in contact with Sergio and Caty. :-)

Una estancia especial

Escogimos Aldea Thai para pasar algunos días fuera de la ciudad en cuarentena y fue una de las mejores decisiones que tomamos. El departamento y las instalaciones muy bien limpias y cuidadas con una atención más por la situación;el concierge nos contactó parta coordinar nuestro arribo y estuvo siempre presente virtualmente, zero-contacto, con nosotros!!
La pasamos genial y estamos esperando con muchas ganas nuestra próxima escapada ahi.

The place is ver comfortable and functional, but is not completely clean. It’s close to two Oxxos, crossfit gym, restaurants and Mamitas beach. Overall it’s a really good place to go with friends.
Great Location, Beautiful Design...Friendly Staff.

This was my second visit to Playa del Carmen. The year before I stayed at the Aventura Mexicana which was great and affordable. However, it is inland (between 5th and 10th Avenues) and this time, we wanted something closer to the beach.

We saw the Aldea Thai last year and decided to give them a shot this time. We weren't disappointed at all.

First off, to clarify some information in the other reviews...Kool Beach Club is in front of the Aldea Thai, but is not part of it. The reviewer shouldn't be complaining about the service there as if it's part of Aldea Thai since it's not.

I was there only two weeks after a previous guest and I didn't find the beach completely eroded at all. It does get crowded in front of the two big beach clubs (Kool and Mamitas) but if you walk north 10-20 minutes you can have a section of beach all to yourself (which is what we did most days).

Now, about Aldea Thai. The grounds are quite pretty to look at. It's got that gorgeous zig-zagging water walkway and a beautiful looking swimming pool. We stayed in room 134 which was a 2 Bedroom apartment. It looked exactly like what the website indicates, with a king size bed (which I found very comfortable), and 2 Queen size beds on the second bedroom, a full kitchen, a large bathroom, and a private balcony.

So, as a condo apartments, it was great. But, like I said, this isn't a resort. There is a swim-up bar at the pool, but it's only open during the day (and the unheated pool wasn't conducive to swimming). The poor bartender had very little to do because most people used the beach instead.

I would definitely stay here again. My rate (through Expedia) was good, the rooms were clean and well-appointed, the location was great, the room was extremely quiet, the views are nice, and the staff was really friendly. Thank you Playa Moments.

i have stayed in this property many times and loved it, but this time was the most dissapointing. Our unit was not facing Calle 28 as I had booked, it faced a back alley that had a noisy "day beach Club" entrance across from our balcony. we could not sit on the balcony as there was no view and many workers on the street all day. The unit was not cleaned properly. I had to wash all the dishes before we could use them. The cleaning service did not clean the counters on both visits. Daniel (the representative from Playa Moments was very helpful and friendly.) I payed extra to have a nice balcony; it was not worth the money. The shower leaked all over the bathroom floor every time the shower was used, as well as the shower head did not work well.

Super clean apartment with towels and beach towels. The building has 24h security and is well maintained.We felt at home and the attention provided by our hosts were incredible.

Nos alojamos en Aldea thai el fin de semana para salir un poco de la ciudad y nos quedamos encantados con esta propiedad. La limpieza y las amenidades fueron de lo mejor que encontramos en los ultimos viajes que hicimos, el departamento se entregó bien limpio y con toallas de sobra hasta para la playa y la alberca! el servicio que nos brindó la agencia fue excelente, nos guiaron desde la reservación hasta reservar un transporte al aeropuerto en el día de nuestra salida! fue en verdad la mejoro experiencia, espero que podamos volver a viajar pronto a Playa del Carmen para disfrutar de este preciosa terraza y alberca que fueron lo mejor de toda la cuarentena!

Good property and location - mostly positive with some watch outs
Review Date: 01/21/2021
Overall a lovely property and great location. Super safe COVID location with separate pool from the main pool which we loved. We had 6 adults for a 50th birthday celebration and had plenty of room for everyone. The watch outs are - management is very hands off. We requested additional toilet paper (we weren't given more when they came to clean) and never received it. Also the images of the unit we booked were different than the actual unit - we were ok with this, but just another watch out. Overall it was a good stay and we felt safe for COVID.

Amamos ese lugar, nos quedamos encantados por el diseño único del espacio y por la hermosa alberca privada que fue el top durante nuestras vacaciones de cuarentena! lo mejor de todo a parte de la ubicación fueron las atenciones brindadas por parte del personal que en todo momento estuvo pendiente con las debidas precauciones nos ha hecho sentir tranquilas y consentidas en el departamento! ya hemos aconsejado la agencia y esta propiedad a nuestros amigos más cercanos y familia y por seguro volveremos a visitarlos pronto!! muchas gracias!

I had a great time at Aldea Thai. The location was perfect, right behind Kool Beach Club. We had an ENORMOUS 2 BEDROOM WITH HUGE TERRACE APARTMENT, which I found to be quite spacious, with high ceilings and comfortable beds. The bathroom was very convenient with frosted glass doors on the shower and toilet, so you could be in the shower and another person could come in and use the toilet without bothering you. Staff was very friendly and gave us champagne on our arrival, and were quick to respond to any requests we had. We didn't have any problems with hot water, and were able to take long, hot showers. The housekeepers made towel animals (like on cruise ships) with flower petals on our beds on our second day there, which was cute. The pool is nice, and has a shallow section where you can lay out and sunbathe in the water.

The building itself is beautiful, with cool Asian touches everywhere. And it's perfectly situated: at the northern tip of the tourist area, 2 blocks off of 5th - close enough to walk to everything on 5th or even into town, but completely peaceful at night. We found the service to be extremely friendly, from the valets to the concierge to the front desk. Daniel was particularly helpful (and he's always there - we wondered if management ever gives him a day off!).

We got a great price direct on the site of playa I don't think I've stayed anywhere as nice for what we paid. I can't wait to go back!
