This hotel is in a great spot right off of happening 5th Ave...reception area is inviting and comfortable and wifi immediately available for use. Staff were all super friendly and inviting as well. Pool area has nice loungers and lots of sun. We stayed in a standard room (poolside) and it was adequate...nothing new or fancy but had good storage... More

This was my first time in Playa del Carmen and it was one of the best experience that I had in life (June 3 - June 9, 2014) . My overall rating for the hotel might be confusing. First, the hotel is placed in a privileged location. It is right on 5ta avenida and there is always lots of people... More

5 of us spent a day there, all put into different room 1 to 2 blocks away from the hotel main compound which means you have to pull your luggage across the streets. Rooms all come with smell of moisture , cold shower only (although the staff to send someone to fix it nothing happened), air-con remote controller only works... More

Dirty hotel, really bad service, "all inclusive" is a lie, rude personal at the front desk, there's only one restaurant with deficient food, pool is not where all the rooms are, no beach club. Do you need any other reasons to avoid this hotel??

Although I booked a twin room, we were given a 1 double room, a bit awkward when you are on holiday with one of your best friends. They offered an upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment at a very reasonable price, which was reimbursed immediately by Virgin Holidays, whom I booked with. I was a quite wary prior to arriving... More

During spring break the rates go really high and it's not worth it. Service is awful, we asked for a towel 4 times and they came until the 5th. This because we payed for three people in a two bedroom and they only gave us two towels. The wifi signal sucks, it never connected to our room, we only had... More

This is definitely a place I could refer to a Spring Breaker... It is located seconds from the beach, 5th ave and 12th ave as well.. Which are definitely the areas where you will spend the most time.. Pleasant hotel, great staff and definitely the best location for a hotel.

As others have written, this hotel often moves guests with reservations to other properties. I was moved to a different hotel across the street with a room directly overlooking 5th st.
