You can walk the coastline north or south for miles and find your favorite little slice of paradise. The white sand making up Playa’s beautiful beaches is more like flour than powdered sugar.

Wonderful accommodation in Playa Del Carmen
Country: France

Certainly a place to return to. Having researched various types of accommodation in Playa Del Carmen for a party of 7 people we found La Maison Mauresque Mansion believing it to be too good to be true but it really was as amazing as it looks on the website, if not better. Close proximity to shops, restaurants and the beach but set back away from the overly tourist side of town. On top of all that Rod couldn’t have been more friendly and kind, handing out helpful tips and ideas on what to do. We couldn’t have asked for a better base for our stay and would certainly return and recommend to others. From Paris, France.

Es una excelente opción!

Amazing house and great location. The personal service provided by Rodolphe and Johny was top notch. We had so much fun that we are already planning on coming back. I highly recommend this house to anyone and will be telling my friends.

5 Stars Is Not Enough
Country: United States

About 3 years ago I began planning my destination birthday getaway and first saw this place on a vacation website. It didn't have a lot of reviews and with so much available online nowadays that obviously concerned me. I continued to ask myself, "is this too good to be true"? Well now I can add my own review.
Rented the entire 9-br villa and I can't stop talking about the 5-star experience we had. The reservation process was seamless especially for those who like to plan ahead.
Guillermo (house manager/personal concierge) was amazing - like really amazing. We wanted for nothing. Yacht/Limo/Restaurant suggestions? Got it! Massages? Done! Last minute private tours? Of course! Personal chef? Why not! Music from your favorite artist playing when you arrive? Child's play. He takes his job seriously and is available 24-hours a day. Not kidding...24 hours
The house is huge and is its own oasis. It's perfect for large groups. The design is well-executed and incorporates lots of bamboo and palm that offer complete privacy and security. It is seriously within walking distance of anything you could want while there. Shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, beaches, running track, pharmacias - it's all there. The housekeepers were discreet. The Parisian chef (Ludwig) prepared exquisite meals and his attention to detail (just like that cucumber gazpacho) was top notch.
As a first-timer (certainly not the last) in Playa del Carmen, I could not have asked for a better vacation experience, especially in such an awesome and fully-staffed villa.

Un 10 sur toute la ligne
Country: Canada

La Maison Mauresque ? Un 10 sur toute la ligne ! Un décor digne des Mille et une nuits, des volumes giga-gigantissimes - comptez un à deux jours avant d'arriver à vous repérer sans GPS dans le penthouse- un emplacement vrai, authentique au coeur de la ville parmi les autochtones, des hôtes chaleureux et attentifs, bref un must pour se faire un séjour sans fausses notes à Playa del Carmen.
