We found Hotel Delfin on a last minute search having stayed at an awful and expensive 3* hotel in Cancun. What a difference! A warm welcome upon arrival. A cute room with AC, a fan, a fridge and a terrace with sun beds on the top floor. The owners are very accommodating too. The hotel is on the main tourist... More

We tried to get a private room in one of the nice hostels in playa but they where booked out and would have cost us $50 per night. Dragging our bag around town in and out of hotels asking for a good rate this one jumped out at us for $45 per night right smack bang in the middle of... More

What a wonderful place Playa del Carmen is. My buddy and I bought airfare only and hopped around a bit we stayed here our last two nights. Noise not really an issue if you close the window plus it is low season --more families so 5th ave dies out around 11. Clean rooms has what you need for 60 bucks... More

Stayed in the penthouse suite May 2013 for 5 nights. It was 90 degrees Fahrenheit and humid. After getting way too much sun the room was an oasis. The AC and ceiling fan cooled the room quickly and we slept soundly. The staff was very helpful and friendly. For the price we were very happy and would stay here again.

Nice room but up 4 floors if you want the patio. King bed was good. We did hear a bunch of noise one of the three nights but hey it's right on 5th Ave so you have to expect that. Parking is a problem in Playa del Carmen and really unneeded. You can catch good transportation pretty much any place... More

I loved my stay at this hotel! It's less than a block away from the insanely gorgeous beach, with wonderful rooms and air conditioning, comfortable beds, great bathroom, the whole deal. The staff were really friendly, and the folks who cleaned the rooms were so sweet and did fabulous jobs, and they arranged your towels into animal shapes like elephants,... More

I stayed at the Hotel Delfin a number of times in a regular two bed room, and also in the penthouse. Everything about my experience there has been wonderful, from the service and rooms, to the amazing location. Any and everything you want to do while staying in playa is within walking distance, as well as the bus station and... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Delfin just a short walk from the ferry dock in Playa Del Carmen after a week of diving on the island of Cozumel. This charming boutique hotel is on the corner of 5th Ave, just a block from the ocean and conveniently located to everything. Our spacious penthouse room was very clean... More
