I was there for a week of a break from my regular routine. I took an intensive spanish course and stayed in the school's residence for a week. I arrived on Sun; checked in the residence (where it has a staff member 24-7 at the front desk). Both the residence and the school are centrally located to the infamous 5th... More

The rooms were very basic. The twin beds had one sheet, one pillow, and a throw. My room had a desk but no chair. They provide you with one towel and one roll of toilet paper for the week. They wash the sheets and towel once a week and you cannot use the washing machines there. You're expected to tip... More

“Studing language in the place where the Language is spoken is much more effective that at home. One can learn Spanish not only at the school but can also practice in the real life. The environment of IH Riviera Maya is very friendly, all the teachers and the staff are very helpful and try yo meet students wishes. I think... More

Playa del Carmen is a fabulous place to learn Spanish. You can study in the morning and then hit the beach and local attractions in the afternoon. The lifestyle is so good, you may wish to come back, which is what I did! I have studied Spanish twice at International House Riviera Maya. The school is part of the International... More
