This hotel was amazing, we stayed during BPM festival and were expecting lots of noise. Our room was perfectly quiet and a great escape from the hustle and bustle of playa. The location was amazing right in the heart of everything. The service was great from front desk staff in particular Francisco who helped us to book tours and find... More

Since 2006 we've stayed previously at the Playacar Palace, The Royal Playa del Carmen, the Hotel La Tortuga and now The Hotel El Punto. All are fine hotels in very different ways. What made El Punto so perfect and really special for us when we stayed there Christmas week 2014 was (1) its LOCATION which is second to none right... More

Noisy, very poor breakfast and smelly. Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Location is fabulous, but due to be in the middle of 5th av. the fuss of the night makes you stay wake up all night long. They should invest in some more efficient noise isolation windows. The other negative point is the breakfast. As they do not have... More

If you want to sleep on your holiday DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT stay here. 1) it’s on 5th Avenue (noise from bars/clubs till the early hours of the morning) and 2) there was construction work going on next door from 8am everyone morning to 8pm every night (November 2014). The owners should have forewarned all guests regarding the... More

Don't stay here if you want to get any sleep!!! Hotel El Punto did not meet our expectations. Yes - the hotel was centrally located (between busy restaurants and nightclubs - not advertised) and yes - the hotel had trendy, funky decor (with a bed as hard as concrete and strange damp, musty smell) but we did not get a...

This hotel has a great service and a really comfortable room. Check in experience was nice and helpful. However the key thing about it was it`s location who is on the main street but not on the nightclubs street. You`re close to everything without the noise... The hotel doesn't worth the $USD300 night I paid but it is a really... More
