Stayed here 4 times over the last 2 summers and have gotten to know the staff pretty well and are treated great. For years we stayed at all inclusive places in playacar and other boutique hotels in the area and were not fully satisfied... we love this place. Cool music, stylish decor, rooftop pool, good sushi, free bike use, and... More

We enjoyed our stay with the only issue is the music from the roof top bar ( not sure it's the hotel one or the one across the street from us) Perhaps try to stay away from 3 rd level or a corner room (the noise from the street) Being a frequent traveller to Thailand, the food in playa del... More

This was our home away from home for 7 nights. The location was great - everything was very easy to get to. We made great use of the bikes that are free and at your disposal whenever you like. Our room was spacious, clean and super comfortable. My only complaint would be the rooftop party across the street that went... More

Very nice boutique hotel in the center of playa del carmen. Nice and modern room, very nice rooftop bar. They also give you passes to go to beach clubs nearby. The staff was very helpful, we ha dinner at the sushi restaurant and it was quite nice as well. Would definately come back here.

My husband and I chose this hotel based on TA reviews, and it lived up to our expectations. Be Playa is centrally located, being about a 5 minute walk from shopping, dining or the beach, with décor that is a funky mix of modern and retro. Hector, at the front desk, and Aldo, at the Sushi Club bar, as well... More

Location is 5 min walk from the 5th Ave where the action is ;) Close to the beach. Sushi restaurant has got great good and cocktails ;) Breakfast is average. Room: Master Suite was large with Jacuzzi, very comfortable bed and has a South American central city feel rather than the big chain hotels. Which adds to the charm of... More

This hotel experience was one that just kept getting better. We stayed there for 5 nights and by the end of our stay we certainly didn't want to leave - based on the hotel alone. The room accommodations were better than average with plenty of space and ABOVE average amenities - beach/pool towels daily, continental breakfast and lounge area, rooftop... More

I had never stayed in Playa , so I wasn't sure what to expect . The place was easy to find and in a safe area and right near all the restaurants , shopping and discos . There was not a problem with noise at all. The staff was very friendly and was kind enough to accommodate a late checkout... More

From the moment we checked in the staff were amazing, very helpful with everything and took time to give us tips and let us know what was going on. The location is what you want with it being one block to the tourist 5th Av and 5min walk to the beach. Bikes are available should you wish to stray further... More
