Spent five nights there. Almost in the centre-ville and walking distance to the beach, the hotel is surprising, with a piece of tropical garden, fountains and a swimming pool in its lobby. The personnel was very friendly. The rooms have a teerrrace or balcony. Clean, daily cared. Some minor technical problems (energy saving lamps not working). Breakfast only continental but... More

The Hul ku is a decent basic hotel. Conviently located. The rooms are of adaquate size and reasonably maintained. The small details is where this location is lacking. On a closer look the fans and ceilings have not been dusted for some time as obvious by the dark cobwebs. The linens while fresh and clean have show age, taters and... More

We (family with two teenage boys) stayed one night at this hotel. The room was clean and ok. Had a balcony with hammock facing the hotel garden and small pool. The trees and vegetation in the garden are very high so hardly no sun reaches the pool/balcony. Continental breakfast served at the table was ok but a bit too sweet... More

We stayed at Hotel Hul-Ku for one night on our way south from Cancún. Check in at around 8pm was no problem and there is secure parking available for guests at the back of the hotel. Our room (twin double beds) was simple but had everything we needed - hot shower, A/C, wifi and a small kitchen area. Breakfast (included... More

Pros: good environment downstairs Cons: no wifi connection in rooms, the water in the shower shut off while we were showering and did not come back on, the staff were frequently not available in reception, and were not very nice

This is our second year to stay at Hul-Ku. It is a nice quiet hotel (except for one night when there was a loud group who did not read/abide by the "Pool closes at 8PM" sign. The continental breakfast is very nice, as it the cold bottled water pool-side. It is only a few blocks from 5th Ave. and within... More

We stayed 3 nights in May at Hotel Hul-Ku. We checked out a few places between $40-$50 Australian a night and they were more like youth hostels (not that there's anything wrong with that but we're a bit older and want a little more comfort and less noise. May is low season (though you wouldn't know it for the number... More

It is a very basic hotel. No phone on the room to call the reception. Cool water on the pool. No close hour for the pool, none staff ask Not to use the pool after rasonable hour. Charge for borrowing a beach tower. Any consideration to give you a fourth floor room with a little boy, no stair.

We stayed here for three nights at the start of a long trip around Central America and it was a good base for Playa del Carmen. The Hotel Hul Ku has a relaxing feel to it with rooms situated around a central pool and seating area with lots of lush planting and local bird life. It does not look anything... More

I was not impressed with the City of Playa Del Carmen in the first place, as it did not feel like REAL Mexico. Looked and looked for a hotel. Most were at least twice the price of Hul Ku, and not twice as good. What I liked about this place is that it was a local business, I undestand the... More
