The spacious room, the whirlpool and the decoration were very fancy and welcoming. We had 2 days an excursion starting before breakfast time, in order not to miss breakfast they prepared us a lunch box. Great! The location is great, just 2 blocks away from 5ta avenida. It is very close to walk and as you will be 2 blocks... More

After a tough day of travel and no bags, we were glad we at least have this hotel to lay our heads. They took great care of us. AMAZING in room tub and room design. Our room also had a balcony. We loved the vibes and music, but we are not picky about louder music or people having fun. The... More

The Be Playa is the best boutique hotel to enjoy your stay in Playa, huge rooms, great roof top and great service! Very close from the beach and the 5th avenue. If you like creativity you won't be disappointed ++ service by Manuel at the sushi club

Be PLaya has a lot going for it. It's thoughtfully designed, with spacious, bright and airy rooms. The bed was really comfortable and we enjoyed our room a great deal. The service at the front desk is good (thanks Laura!) and very helpful generally. There are some buts, however, which let it down a little and you need to consider... More

I recently stayed at Be Playa during my first trip to Playa del Carmen and was pleasantly surprised. It's located in the heart of the city but far enough away from the night clubs so you're able to get some decent sleep (except for Friday nights when the hotel has music playing loudly on the roof until about 1:30am). The... More

I wanted to stay near the "people" but not in one of the over commercial all inclusive hotels in Cancun, then this is where you stay! The location was amazing! We can walk to the beach and shopping and restaurants of OUR choice. Not be at the mercy of the transportation provided by the hotel. You can smoke hookah, have... More

Dear "Kimiiee", Thank you for your nice feedback! You hit the nail on the head about Be Playa not being an all-inclusive hotel. Small, boutique hotels offer a more human and personalized experience, and we cater more to guests wanting to have that freedom and that interaction. You get to know us by name, as we do with our guests.... More

It starts with the staff! They are incredible, friendly, knowledgable and just plain nice. They know everything and will arrange anything you need. The Sushi Restaurant on the main floor with the very cool bar and DJ is a great chill out spot as is the roof top pool and bar - and you can eat up there too. The... More

What can I say? This place is charming. I'm enchanted with it really. Such a laid-back, relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere, with the kindest staff. It was our 3rd time to stay. I love this place so much; I can't even complain about our last night there, when we had issues with cool air. (Sometimes paradise is hot.) Be Playa handled the... More
