Our first visit to The Blue Parrot Inn , it was truly an "Inn"! They had six palapa rooms on the beach, and four rooms in the main office bldg. next to the Dragon Bar and a three bdrm. house 100 feet north of the palapas. Now granted , this was in the early 90's and Playa Del Carmen was... More

Hello Todd, First off thank you for your review. We appreciate all comments and really do take our customers messages into consideration. However, giving Blue Parrot such a negative review cause the venue and town are no longer what it as 30 years ago is unfair. There are many things that have happened in Playa beyond the control of Blue... More

I attended BPM 2015, and attended the Blue Parrot for the Cadenza night, Tanaglia night, and closing with Marco Carola. I wished to attend more events there, but BPM is all about living in the moment, and realizing there's only one place one can be at a given time. Onto the club, a typical response with the typical reviews here,... More

Hello Henry, Thank you for your review. We always appreciate the feedback from our guests. So you attended BPM 2015 which Blue Parrot is the official home of. Those 10 days are easily the toughest couples of weeks to operate as we are running at almost 100% for all 10 days. We know we won't get it prefect but we... More

My boyfriend and I met a local that showed us around and took us here. I am so glad I didn't miss this! We are in our mid-twenties and everyone there was around 18-30 I would say. But it was great! They played a variety of music from hip hop to techno. The people there are very friendly and there... More

We spent the first night clubbing there and I can tell you that the environment is awesome: lots of mexicans and foreigners from all over the world gathered in one place. Drinks are well served, and the price is worth it. The place is just next to the beach and it has a small pool where you can refresh yourself.... More

Hello friends , I am from Canada, my family has owned an apartment building beside Coco Bongo since 1997. I am not new to the area. Do not go to this "club". This business is obviously not working towards customer satisfaction, regardless of who you are. However, if you wish to become the tourist "local Mexicans" take advantage of this... More

We went to Blue Parrot for the BPM festival. The renovations were excellent. The Palapa and the DJ booth were awesome as well as the LED wall. The new pool was really cool. There are now more bars and it feels much more open.

Blue Parrot beach club advertisements are all over Playa del Carmen, primarily because they seem to host a lot of events, beach partys and concerts. I went there on two occasions, one was during the day to enjoy the beach club itself and the other was to see DJ Sasha at one of their events. The day time beach club... More

This place has a wonderful atmosphere. Open air with the sound of their waterfall make for a very relaxing dinner. Don't get one of the tables on the sidewalk by the street though, our dinner got interrupted constantly by street musicians, flower sellers and beggars. It was not any fault of the restaurant but really hurt the quality of our... More
