Paamul Hotel was an experience on its own. Uncrowded beaches for miles. Oceanfront room just a step from our room. The deck is wonderful with comfortable seating and lounge chairs. Our room had a small fridg and micro, small counter and sink. Nice closet and safe. Also ample drawers for your belongings. Beds were very comfy with wonderful linens. Nice... More

We have been to Cancun where we booked an all-inclusive hotel. This time, we wanted to try something different. I got to know Paamul from other reviewers here in Tripadvisor. If you really want to get close to the water without paying the price of an all-inclusive hotel, this is the place to go! It's nice to sleep with the... More

Where to begin. My girlfriend and I wanted a much needed getaway to paradise during Minnesota's worst winter ever. We sure found it! We have been to Playa Del Carmen before and love it, but we wanted to try something different this time. We wanted the fun busy city of Playa for shopping, etc. during the day, but then we... More

We spent there one night on our way to playa del carmen. We had our tent and went there to camp. This establishment doesn't really have a camping area; this is a trailer park. After asking several times if they'd have a bit of grass to sleep on, they kindly showed us some kind of parking next to a sewer... More

This was our second stay at Paamul Hotel & Cabanas and it was awesome - we were not disappointed. We stayed in an upstairs master suite that was charming with it’s gauzy, white draperies over the bed . . . add the sound of the ocean and it was very romantic. The bathroom was attractive and modern and the coffee... More

Paamul was recommended to us by a close friend, and it was everything she promised and more. We just loved this place... We booked one week in a ground floor room with a quaint little deck that walked out to the ocean just a few steps away. The room was just great for us. Barto is the happy, friendly and... More

This is an amazing jewel of a location. Simple, elegant, stunning ocean views and beach access immediately off your private deck. If you are looking to sleep & awake to the sounds of rolling waves, star gaze with brilliant clarity, long walks on deep sand beaches - this is the place. But it's not Disney World or Atlantis! It's a... More

I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for Paamul. Let's call it 3.5. The positives for this property are the location and the unspoiled beauty of the beach. It is a very small hotel, just about a dozen rooms. We booked the master suite, but I would not do that in the future. The larger kitchen and dining area weren't... More
