Front Desk Clerks, Maragarita and Fernando were frienldly and provided lots of information. The rest of the front Desk clerks seemed like you were bothersome. A place close to 5th. This place is in Playa de Carmen and walking distance to most of Playa de Carmen. I would recommend a hotel that has a better refrig, since the one in... More

Really lovely hotel, all of the rooms open out to overlook the pool area. Clean with hot showers, rooms are spacious and the location is convenient. The restaurant staff offer really poor service. I had to ask for an espresso 3 times before being brought a filter coffee in an espresso cup. The fourth time I was finally brought an... More

Hotel Riviera Caribe Maya is a one of a most cool and cozy hotel in Playa del Carmen. I never like those large resort hotel, so this place is perfect and the owner Paola is super nice:-) I will be going back there in May. This time with my best friend from Tokyo. Can't wait!!!!

It´s a small nice hotel just some meter away from the main street. It´s facing the 10th avenue witch haves some traffic but you almost don't feel it. Clean and nice. It could get better the water quality in the pool. It´s a petty that it doesn't have breakfast included. The bar at the side of the hotel it´s just... More

The hotel itself is pretty nice, the staff very helpful. I reserved via Expedia so got a pretty good price. The pool area was very nice, but for us the water was cold, and it's shaded for a good part of the day. My issues were with our particular room, (103) the shower area and also the fan. The fan...

This is a decent place with a great location right off 5th Ave, a pedestrian-friendly street which has everything food & entertainment on it. Close to the beach too (5 min walk) No wi-fi in room & a funny smell in the pool area. Service average

Just finished a five day stay at the Riviera Caribe Maya. First and foremost the staff was very nice and always accommodating. This is a basic, clean hotel with a GREAT location right in the mix. Just a quick 1/2 block and you are right in the heart of 5th street Playa. Everything you need is within a block of... More

We reserved a "Master Suite" for five nights and after checking in the hotel lobby we left the lobby and walked one and a half blocks on on the street. We were put in a room that was about 4mX9M (12ftX27ft) and were told by the hotel employee that this was a "Master Suite". To go to the swimming pool... More

I stayed at the hotel for 10 nights at the end of December 2014/ beginning of January 2015. The location is fantastic (despite our taxi driver dropping us off in completely the wrong place) - just 30 seconds walk from 5th avenue and all the shops and restaurants there. It is also only a few minutes walk to the beach.... More
