The home was unbelievable. We had a group of 6 and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, the house was extremely spacious and the seperate rooftop decks, not to mention the rooftop jacuzzi, made for great daytime lounging and sunbathing. The daily maid service was fantastic. The beach is less than a block away and there was rarely anyone other than our party there which made us feel like it was all ours. The restaurants and bars are all about a 10 minute walk down the road or a quick taxi ride. I also recommend taking the ferry to Cozumel for some snorkeling. After staying at Casa de Passalaqua once, we are definitely going to try and make it an annual destination for us."

The house was so roomy and clean! Perfect for entertaining and so close to the private beach that was so nice to relax in. The rooftop deck was great for grilling and the pool was perfect for the sunset. We will be back!!!!!!!!"

Reviewer: Justin Vogel, Atlanta, GA                                                                                                                           "This was such a wonderful place to base our vacation from. Our group of 10 was very comfortable in the large rooms and spacious common areas. We spent many great evenings on the rooftop deck hanging out overlooking the ocean...Owners are very responsive and helpful and gave me the feeling they really wanted to do anything they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The handy

man stopped by just to introduce himself and let us know it is ok to call him with any concerns. I could go on, but I think you get the gist, this house is a winner for large groups."

Reviewer: Greg Minor                                                                                                                         Eleonora, We got back late last night. Great trip, great house, thank you. Carlos was wonderful. Sandra Amieva R. made us the most wonderful food, we can't recommend her enough! The house worked out great. We are planning on returning next year. We will let you know. Thank you!

Reviewer: Carol                                    Adams                                                                                                                                                                                 Ciao Eleonora Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for letting us rent Casa Passalaqua. My family had a wonderful time staying in your vacation rental! It was perfect for our needs! I also recommend adding Sandra's restaurant/catering info to the house book as well. She prepared a wonderful meal for us at the house on our last night. Her prices were excellent and the food was delicious! Visitors should contact her early in their stay as her food was better than most of the 5th ave restaurants we ate at and her prices were 3 times less! Casa Passalaqua is beautiful and we really enjoyed our visit there and HIGHLY recommend it for others. I hope I can one day return to Casa Passalaqua with my family and friends. What a beautiful area and so close to the beach. My favorite thing to do was to watch the sunrise from the Jacuzzi patio. I will send you some of my pictures as they were incredible!! Again thank you so much! Ciao,

Reviewer: The  Thompsons                                                                                                                                   Location! Location! Location! One of the best things about this house is its location. The quiet beach is so close and the shops and restaurants in town are an easy walk. Anything else (like Sam's Club) is a five dollar taxi ride. It is a safe and secure area. No worry about being out and about at night. It is a quiet street with little traffic and it is raked and swept every morning. The house itself worked very well for us. We are a family of nine covering three generations. The bedrooms and bathrooms gave us all plenty of space. We had a great Christmas at Casa Passalacqua and hope to return someday. The Thompsons of Colorado

Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had at your wonderful, wonderful Villa – Casa Passalacqua -- we spent a wk there and it wasn’t enough for me – We had a group of nine and all accommodations were excellent – very private. The pool area is exactly as described – which was perfect for us and very clean, maintained daily. The maid service was also excellent – very prompt and friendly. There is nothing we can say except we had a most wonderful family vacation – exactly what we were looking for – just to sit, relax and enjoy each others company, Location is good very easy access and seemed to be safe area – walking distance to beach and main avenue. Again, it was fabulous and we will definitely return to Casa Passalacqua – hopefully in the very near future. Thank you

Reviewer: Adrian Martinez
We had a great time at Casa Passalacqua the whole week. The house was beyond our expectations and we were pretty satisfied with our choice. The location is excellent, could not be better.

The house is just two blocks away from the beach and I would say a private one since we had it for ourselves almost throughout the whole week. The Jacuzzi is the greatest asset on your house as well as the overwhelming view from the terrace, where we did use the BBQ at night. Just like you said, it is a 5 min stroll to 5th Avenue. Security in PLAYACAR was excellent as well as the persons in charge of maintenance of the house… BOTTOM LINE… I would turn this to be an annual trip TO YOUR HOUSE, so I guess that you'll be hearing from us next summer. We really appreciate all your attentions. Thank you and B. Regards Reviewer: Katie, University of Rhode Island

This house was so amazing!! It was so spacious, clean, and beautiful...and it only took minutes to walk to the beach and to the shops of 5th Ave!! The view of the ocean from the house was exceptional and completley relaxing! I can't wait to go back and visit paradise again!!

I had the best time at Villa Passalacqua! Seconds away from the beach, great sun deck, beautiful decorations and great memories of Playa!!! I loved my stay at the house!!

Reviewer: David Larson Mesa, AZ
We just got back from staying in the Casa Passalacqua.It was great and only 6 months old as of May 2004.When we first thought of going to Cancun, we wanted to take all my family and kids, who are all grown and one is married but no children yet.It was a total of 9.I had been at Cancun before and it was more like going to an American resort town.We wanted something different. We wanted to be able to stay together and enjoy each other and talk and laugh.We chose the Casa Passalacqua, and were not sorry we did. All the family repeatedly stated they were glad we were staying where we were. We went through Playa Beach Rentals. 

A few things should be mentioned.The air conditioner is not central as we in the U.S. know it, with one or two compressors and air coming out of ducts.They are wall mounted units in each room with a small compressor outside for each unit.This is actually better!Each bedroom gets to be the temperature that each couple wants.We had some that liked it cool and other that liked it warmer.The table is big enough to seat 9.The rooms are very spacious.The top room is big enough for 2 king size beds and plenty more room. That's the one to fight for.The Jacuzzi is as big as advertised and is taken care of very well.The view is wonderful and there is a table and chairs such that you can eat up there on the second floor veranda and enjoy the view of the ocean and Cozumel in the distance.Sergio, who is in charge of customer relations, was always available to handle small problems that could arise. The water pressure is just fine. The beach is very close and is a very nice one.One thing I learned was that in Mexico, all the beaches are free to walk on.You can go onto the beaches where the big resorts are, and can sit down and enjoy yourself.Can't go inside if it is restricted.There is plenty to do, and if you get bored, it is your own fault.There is a large very modern store that offers food and household stuff, much like Wall Mart, called Chemudraui I believe.It is right on the corner of Highway 307 and Jurarez.Prices are very good. I could write a lot more, but all you should know is that it is a great place in a great town.

What a privilege it was to be one of the first guests at Casa Passalacqua. We, a group of four women, had the time of our lives. Two of us have been traveling to Playa over the years and stayed in many homes in Playacar. This was one of my favorites. We have already been discussing a booking for next year.

We each had our own suite with private full bath. Each with a special twist. One of the master suite showcases an incredible rubber tree (outside of course). The beds were heavenly! The sundeck aligned itself with the tree tops -great for private tanning and a splendid view of Island of Cozumel at night. The terrace area with jacuzzi was great gathering place. Not to forget the lovely main floor living, dining and kitchen area. The home exceeded our expectations. The rental process was smooth with Playa Beach Rentals. All four of us would give it four stars.
