I settled here for 3 nights. The location is superb in regards to the nightlife, clubs, restaurants, shops, and people watching. Best location hands down. However, the average rating is largely due to the room. The room was fine for 4 people. The AC worked well. The restroom was mediocre. There was one night after returning from Blue Parrot club...

We booked for 3 nights, the room had like a hundred mosquitoes inside, there are no windows. Bathroom stinks, towels stink, room feels like a cell, the pool its very small and it had bird poop all around, too much noise and bad signal with the wify. It was a nightmare. But great staff.

But, if you go there, make sure you have ear plugs and something to breathe the fresh air from. Noise is just unbearable and smell is horrible. Location is central, that is good. I am not a spoiled tourist but this place is just a big no, no. It is somehow dirty and sticky. People are kind though. Massage is... More

The staff member upon check in was the only good thing at this hotel. Being on fifth ave, you'd expect a little noise but it was as if a DJ was playing in my bedroom. The sheets had stains all over them and the pillow smelt really bad. The blinds were a tiny bit of fabric which wasn't even enough... More

We were in playa del Carmen for our wedding in May 2015. We decided to stay close to town after the wedding, somewhere cheaper than the resort. I found Hotel Azul on Hotels.com and based upon the free Wi-Fi, the price, and the pictures, I booked a room. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was right off of the busy... More

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

We were 4 ppl traveling for vacation this place looked fine on their site but our room was a box! No where for clothes terrible included breakfast. Service was so bad they seemed annoyed that we were there. We never got new towels unless we complained we caught them using the same bed sheets. The only ppl around the pool... 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
