Recommended Airbnbs in Playa del Carmen

Interested in finding the best airbnb apartment in Playa del Carmen for your upcoming visit? Well, I’ve got you covered.

Below, you’ll find a short list of recommended airbnb apartment rentals in Playa del Carmen for whether you’re traveling as a a single or couple (1-2 guests) all the way up to groups of 8 persons or more.

Before I get into this curated list of the best vacation rentals in Playa del Carmen, I should start by saying that I’ve been fortunate enough to call Playa del Carmen my home base for the last three years now.

In other words, I know Playa like the back of my hand at this point and I’m finally getting around to creating content based around all my personal recommendations when it comes to the best places to eat, play and stay both in and around Playa del Carmen.

In case you haven’t heard, Playa del Carmen is said to be one of the fastest growing cities in Latin America — there are literally new hotels, condos, restaurants and cafes popping up on just about every corner from Playacar to the beginning of Colosio and from the edge of the Caribbean sea westward to the Carretera (Federal Highway).

One of the many problems that goes hand in hand with the rapid growth of any city (not only Playa del Carmen) is finding quality accommodations at reasonable prices and this is one of the reasons why I decided to create this guide.

Note: My curated list of recommended airbnbs and vacation rentals in Playa del Carmen below should suit just about all of your wants and needs for your upcoming vacation. Should you find that you have more questions in regards to Playa del Carmen or more specifically Playa del Carmen airbnbs, please be sure to leave a comment below and I’ll respond to you as soon as possible.

Anah Suites Penthouse Loft Airbnb Playa del Carmen

Luxury Penthouse Loft

This beautiful penthouse loft is the featured property on this list and for a few good reasons. Firstly, it’s owned by a good friend of mine (James) who happens to own a few condos here in Playa del Carmen and if there’s anyone I trust to make sure you have a comfortable stay in Playa, James is the guy.

I’m featuring this specific penthouse loft of his as it’s the nicest and most unique penthouse that I’ve stepped foot in here in Playa del Carmen. From the layout of the apartment to the location, price and the amenities offered at Anah Suites, this place really can’t be beat.

Note: If you decide to book with James please mention that you found his apartment here on Pause The Moment!

They include Wi-Fi, AC in all rooms, cable, telephone, washer/dryer, a fully stocked kitchen, toiletries, beach towels, housekeeping, and all your other vacation rental essentials. The building is located on a public street with public parking available directly in front of the building at no cost.

About the Hosts:

Husband and wife, new parents, foodies, and lovers of travel. We’re originally from the U.S. but moved to Playa del Carmen 6 years ago where we are currently living full-time. We traded in the corporate jobs and business suits for flip flops and a more relaxed beach lifestyle and can honestly say we have no regrets!

In addition to Airbnb, we also manage a small boutique hotel in Playa so we know the hospitality industry and the importance of making our guests feel welcomed and well taken care of, especially after a long travel day! We know vacations can be hard to come by so we work just as hard to ensure you have a good experience when choosing to stay with us. Your happiness is of utmost importance to us so we will do whatever it takes ensure your stay with us is a great one.

As our guests, you will also get our personal recommendations for all our favorite local spots and restaurants. We love to eat so trust me when we say they are good! In addition, our entire hotel team is also available to assist you with any of your travel needs whether you have questions on tours, activity recommendations, transportation, spa bookings, beach clubs, best places to snorkel, vow renewals, etc. etc. Whatever you can think of, we can help!

We hope you’ll come make yourselves at home at our place. If you do, we have a feeling you’ll love Playa just as much as we do. Bienvenidos!

Comfortable Studio Apartment Airbnb Playa del Carmen

Comfy & Affordable Studio Apartment

If you’re traveling to Playa del Carmen on a budget then this beautiful little studio apartment should suit your needs. For less than $50/night, you can have this place all to yourself — or you can comfortably share this apartment with a friend or family member if you choose.

While the location of this studio apartment is a bit north of the action (5-10 mins or so), I would still recommend it as it’s a short walk from the northern part of 5th Avenue where you’ll find lots of great restaurants and shops. The beach is also a 5 minute stroll away.

Note: I have no affiliation with the owner of this apartment unlike the two apartment listings above. I am simply recommending this place based on the price, style/design and positive reviews.

  • Accommodates: 1-2 people
  • Beds: 1
  • Bathrooms 1
  • WiFi: Yes

Location: North of C.T.M.
