I stood there for two nights, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and willing to help whenever needed. Rooms are good and have aircon, but the toilet had a weird smell. Amenities in the room are rather basic but still ok. A nice part of the beach is just 1 street away so it is perfect. Also very convenient... More

I reserved via expedía with a very good price. The hotel is ok, the staff is friendly, and my room was quite big. The hotel is clean and modern, but it already needs a renovation. There were some water leaks in the ceiling. The location is very good if you are going in a party mood. The street is noisy... More

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.

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).

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
