My daughter and I are budget travelers, so we looked up Hotel Plaza Playa on Trip Advisor before booking. The reviews were good, so we booked the hotel for a night, since we were waiting for our condo booked a few miles up the beach to become available the next afternoon. We arrived early, exhausted after a challenging flight. The... More

Pros: Very helpful and accommodating staff. Kept my luggage for the day even after checkout. Amazing breakfast next door w wonderful service. Bunch of local restaurants and a mall one block away. Cons: a bit of walk from the bus/ferry station. Cab took 40-50 pesos.

I am not the typical long-term Playa-Tourist, rather on transit from Belize. Stayed here one night waiting for my flight. Excellent price for what you get ! Very conveniently located to the new ADO downtown bus station (5 min walking). Very spacious rooms, good bathrooms, full-stream showers. Excellent huge bed, fast WiFi. Competent staff, no questions asked, no formalities, quick... More

Good hotel, basic, clean and friendly staff. We were given a hair dryer by reception which was an added bonus. The breakfast was basic Mexican style but enough for what you need. Wifi did not work and as internet junkies we were a bit lost. We did inform reception but they advised there was no problem with the internet. Please... More

Great, clean family run place. The breakfast was simple but adequate. Very good service and attention. About 10 mins walk from the beach. Super clean, safe neighbourhood. Good food, grocery options nearby. (We stayed in March 2012)

We were looking for a non-expensive hotel, located in Playa del Carmen, and this was the perfect place for us. The hotel is small, but really nice, clean and comfy. I really recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place that offers the basic stuff, nice clean rooms, good location and good value.

The hotel is located on a quiet street about 4 blocks from the action of 5th avenue, and within walking distance to Wal-Mart and other grocery stores. The rooms are modern, comfortable, immaculately cleaned each day, and are very well air conditioned.

Our hotel is run by its owner, Sigfrido Paz Paredes, and has been completely decorated with the artwork of his wife, Raquel Marrero, whose work has become so popular that she will be opening a studio soon in Playa del Carmen. The hotel is not on the beach, nor does it have a pool. Our hotel is for people looking for something different. Affordable and friendly accommodations in Playa del Carmen. ... more   less
