The worst experience I have ever had. I ended up filing a claim at the Profeco which is like the Better Business Beurau, My purse was stolen at the beach with my camera and hotel keys. I went to the hotel around 3 am and the owner refused to open the door. She said I had to wait until 8am... More

Spent one night...everything was just fine...wifi, hot water, TV all worked...there wasnoisy music from a restaurant next doors but the hotel warned about that ahead of time. Great location. I'd use it again. TV is an old bulky Sony but works fine although the batteries on the remote were dead.Reception closes at 10pm so one must check in before then.... More

There were some negative reviews written about this property which gave us pause, but we decided to book it anyway. I'm glad we did. Sandra, the owner and operator and Jose, her trusted sidekick run a first rate hotel. It's close enough to the action on 5th so that within a couple of minutes you're right in the midst of... More

This place is great. We had a room in the main building without a balcony. The room had two big windows and catches a nice breeze so you didn't need airco. The bed is super comfy and the bathroom was big, clean and had an excellent shower. Jose at the reception is a great guy. He helped us out a... More

We were in the hotel villa del mar in our honey moon vacation. At the beginning we took only two nights and since we were very satisfied from the room hotel personal and the location we took five more nights. The room was very clean and beautiful(we stayed at room 1 with the balcony), and it feels like home. The... More

Playa del Carmen wasn't on my agenda on our trip but Jose made it all worthwhile. Located well enough off 5th to be a quiet refuge, close enough to make it ideal. Jose had all the local info we needed for whatever we were looking for and was also able to advise us on what to see on our trip... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend after arriving in Playa del Carmen without a reservation. The front staff, Johnathan and Jose were so welcoming, friendly and helpful that I can't imagine choosing any other hotel. They gave me a world full of great advice on the area, provided a map, and even offered to make a few phone calls on... More

We stayed here for 3 nights this past weekend and had the best bed we have ever had in a hotel. We stayed in the room with our own private balcony which had a king size bed, lots of very hot water and very clean. The hotel is only a block from the famous 5th Avenue and 2 blocks from... More

We stayed at Villa del Mar in Jan/Feb of 2013 for our 4th time in a row, for 11 nights.....it was still under the management of Anna and Dirk, and Elena who was at the front desk. We had a wonderful time as usual, and felt totally welcomed and spoiled by Anna who always went above and beyond being a... More

We decided at the last minute to go to Playa Del Carmen over the Holidays, so everything was booked. We found a room available at the Villa Del Mar, where we stayed a few years ago and had a nice experience. Unfortunately, the place was sold recently and the service changed dramatically, for the worst. Our plane landed later than... More
