I stayed at the Real Mayab for a week and found it to be a VERY comfortable place to stay in. No views but the fact that it's so close to everything is a major plus! Only a 3 min walk from the hub of Playa del Carmen and if you're looking for more of a 'local' feel, walk to... More

Stayed here for one night before heading to the airport and boy were we glad it was only that one night! The rooms are dark and humid with a terrible moldy smell. We were out all day and came home late to sleep. We went to Starbucks for breakfast so never tried their breakfast. Would probably not stay here again.... More

A very nice experience! The hotel is cheap but clean, with nice and big rooms, friendly personnel, well located close to the beginning of the 5th avenue. The breakfast was really good and free parking slots are available in front of the hotel. The only problem was the weak wifi in our room. Surely recommendable!

We just spent a couple of days in that small nice hotel and we are very satisfied. If you're looking for a luxury resort where you can spend your entire day, than it's not your choice. But if you're on a budget, and you would like to stay at a safe, clean, nice hotel during the night, you'll like it.... More

We had spent 7 weeks at this hotel. It would be difficult to find another place with such high value for money deal. To start with hotel has only eleven rooms and within few days you know all the staff and most of guests that stay for a week or more. One cannot praise enough the staff, starting with Manager...

We stayed one night at the hotel. It was clean & comfortable and just on the edge of downtown Playa Del Carmen. A great hotel for a few nights stay with in walking distance to 5th ave, and the night life of 5th ave. The hotel also provided a breakfast in the price of the room.

The location was amazing, really close to the 5a Avenida, where all shops and restaurants are. I had read that the beds are hard, and they are - however, they aren't that bad, and we had no problem sleeping in them. The staff was super-friendly and helpful. The place was very cheap for how good it was, an incredible value... More

We were there for 8 days, the location is great because is near (4 blocks) to the transportation to other sites like Akumal, Tulum, XPU-ha (a really nice place). The hotel is simple and comfortable, for breakfast you can take some fruits, coffee and milk, "nutella", cheese, yogurt, toast and pudding. We really appreciated the attention of the employees, who... More

We felt more like a burden than guests. The wi-fi did not work at all but the room was relatively clean and definitely not comfortable. Then my boyfriend went for breakfast within the designated breakfast time (albeit he got there ten minutes before the breakfast period ended) and as the staff was sitting there eating their own breakfast, they told...
