With all the great reviews we thought we couldn't go wrong here - WRONG! When I'm on vacation I want just a wee bit of luxury, a comfortable bed, a nice pool and a good shower. None of these were had here. The bed was like a piece of plywood with a thin sheet on it - not even a... More

If you're looking for a great deal and a wonderful and memorable hotel a minute's walk from the Playa, this is the place for you! Kitschy and with wonderful staff and very comfortable rooms, the Jungla is owned by a German couple who also live on the premises and add an elegant eccentricity to this gem! we want to return...

We were 3 girls (24-31) travelling for 5 days in Mexico, we booked our flight without looking for a hotel. Once we arrived in Cancun, we rented a car and drove to Playa del Carmen, it was very easy to find free parking close from the City Center and 5 avenida (main street) We looked at several hotels and finally...

The Jungla Caribe is an oasis on the beach in more ways than one. It is a place of interesting design and art, comfortable rooms tailored to different needs and pocket books and run by a wonderful staff that keeps the place the great experience it was. Playa del Carmen can be crowded and a bit over the top but... More

On our first trip to Playa del Carmen, we stayed at a different hotel. It was ok...but just ok. It didn't really have any character or personality. Every time we walked down 5th, I would stop and stand outside the Jungla Caribe, admiring it. When we booked our trip for the following year, there was no doubt in my mind... More

... to be. Great host (German designer couple Rolf & Barbara Albrecht), very friendly and full of interesting stories. Outside party inside chilled-out atmosphere. The colourful backyard is packed with flowers and has a small pool. A good retreat if you want something quiet.

Location, location, location... Beautiful little hotel right smack dab in the middle of Playa del Carmen and 5th ave... The rooms are ok, they are not 5 star but the location makes up for it and the prices are that bad for where the location is...

Beautiful hotel, a lot of colors and plants, funny decoration thanks to an artist. The rooms are large and clean : the furnitures are old and can be broken, very good bed, we had troubles with hot water. There is a charming pool. The staff is nice and polite. But the most important is the location : PERFECT !!
