Location - steps off 5th on 26th, right in the middle of the promenade and a five minute walk to Mammitas Beach (way better than the beaches south of the pier). Perfect. Noise - you have to be careful where you stay when you're in Playa...you can get caught with a club next door that bangs away till 5 in... More

There aren't many older condos or hotels in Playa which have retained that hacienda style charm while still fulfilling all the needs of the modern traveler. This particular one does just that. When you walk in, you feel like you have found your own special corner of Playa that feels like home. Not all condos here are created equal, and... More

The condos are tastefully decorated and very up to date. Great location. You can walk the entire area of playa del Carmen. From the beginning to... More

This condo was absolutely amazing. It was beautiful, HUGE, nicely decorated, and quiet. I believe we were in Unit 6, which is an awesome loft style condo with 2 king size beds, a huge bathtub, 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen, a nice living room, etc. We had some trouble locating the place because we arrived after dark, but happened...

We have stayed at Royal Palms many times and and various units over the years. This is the first time we have rented the rooftop penthouse. Overall, the condo is beautiful and I would not hesitate to stay again. I do think it is time for the owner of this unit to do some updating. First of all, the water... More

We rented the Penthouse for Christmas and New Year around 11nights in all, it was an expensive time to book and at first I was a little dissappointed at the dated bedrooms and bathrooms, which reminded me of a Tommy Bahama ad with palmtree motifs and shells stuck to the wall from the late 90's but we didn't spend time...

The minute we arrived we couldn't stop smiling. We had the penthouse and the great views you get from the roof top. The place was very clean with all the amenities. It's a great location, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. And you don't need to go more than a block in any direction to find... More

We were lucky to book unit 10, the 2 bedroom penthouse condo, last minute for a week long vacation. The condo comes with a spacious private outdoor deck/landing with lounge chairs, a cold-water jacuzzi, and a view of the beach. The decor throughout the condo was beautiful, unique, and obviously hand selected. The pictures on the management sites web page... More
