Great Location, Super Clean, Perfect Getaway!
This was our first VRBO experience and it set the bar VERY high. This property was nestled in a jungle setting yet extremely easy to find and quick to get downtown Playa. We rented a car and weren’t in Mexico to lay on the beach all day, we had a list of adventures and this property location was central to them all. We arrived late in the evening but were warmly welcomed by one of the property owners. They live on site and are very accessible if you need anything at all (laundry, pool accessories, beach chairs, etc). I will be recommending this place to anyone I know going to this area. So amazing!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect in Every Way
My friend and I both booked rooms at Hacienda XCaret and we could have not been more pleased. Glen and his family were very warm, welcoming, and accommodating. We loved our little jungle hacienda and are already planning our return trip. I especially loved my personal little hammock. My room was everything I could want and more; and I really enjoyed the little touches that showed that Glen and his family really care about your stay, such as the 6-pack of beer, the pastries, and the can of bug spray. Thanks so much for an unbelievable, incredible, and perfect little weekend in Playa Del Carmen. See you again soon :)

5/5 Excellent

Simply amazing
Geat place hosted by a friendly family with two young kids. Perfect if you have a car. If not, i would advise going somewhere else, unless you plan to spend all your time in the Xcaret parks, which are at walking distance (we could litterally hear the people screaming on the ziplines in Xplor park!). Otherwise, the setting and the rooms are simply beautiful and well maintened. The hosts even put in some beers, water and milk in the fridge prior our arrival!! Can't beat that! It is a very relaxing spot, with lots of vegetation, a nice pool and places to rest and enjoy the sun. You're in the jungle but close to everything. We could hear the cars on the main road but the jungle setting makes you forget everything else. For animal lovers. Hosts have 3 friendly dogs and a lovely cat. Spider monkeys paid us a visit every single evenings we were there. This place is a good alternative to an appartment in playa del carmen if you have a rental car. Much more relax and an amazing place for the price. Would go back anytime.

More beautiful than the pictures.
The apartment is beautifully decorated, the bed comfortable, the kitchen well-outfitted, the bathroom impeccably clean and modern. Coffee, milk, beer, and water provided were welcome upon our late arrival. Even better than the apartment and the grounds are the friendliness and attention of the owners. Thank you both for your kindness and your advice about what to do and where to eat in the area. We hope we are able to come again.
