This was my third visit of this beautiful seaside city and first time I decided to stay in a low budget hotel. Anyway, my experience was very positive, the rooms are very clean and the location is directly on the main avenue of the city. Special thanx goes to the front desk staff (Praxedes) for his excellent guest service and... More

I booked a stay at this hotel for 2 nights prior to checking into a 5 night stay at an all inclusive resort. Upon checking in after a long flight we got into the room and it was the most musty smelling place i have ever encountered. No air conditioning and it was hot and WET in the room. One... More

I believe the owner has other hotels in the area so don't confuse the other reviews with this hotel which is on fifth avenue beside the tequila barrel bar. Firstly we took 2 rooms at this hotel because we were left stranded on our arrival in Playa del Carmen. We had booked and paid in full for a condo only... More

There are several fundamental issues with this hotel, but first and foremost DO NOT STAY HERE. We made the mistake of booking two nights here in the new year, we had to leave after just one - it is that terrible. The first room they gave us felt like a prison cell, it stank and the pillows were damp, so... More

Hotel Azul is a small clean hotel right in downtown of Playa del Carmen. For the price you get a real good deal. The big problem we had (so the missing star) was the possibility to park our car nearby despite the claim of booking.com about existing parking lots.

I've traveled a bit, but this hotel is the worst I've experienced. After making a reservation I arrived to learn the hotel is booked and the only room left is the one in the front next to reception, fine. Room #1. However, this room has no TV, no working AC and you can hear every conversation at the reception. Due... More

The hotel is on a perfect location, straight on 5th avenue. We had a room for 3 people for a very very economic price! The room had a double bed and a single one, air con, fan, tv, 2 safe boxes, hot water. The maid clean it daily and Carlos y Omar in reception were extremely helpful!!!!
