It's located near all the restaurants and shops on 5th st and is about a block away from the beach. Try sushi club as well. Best sushi in playa.... More

The cleaning ladies do an outstanding good job. The reception is always super friendly and helpful. Another very nice feature is... More

I was in Be Playa for Sunday pool day. The place was empty when we arrived but got full by the time we left. It was loads of fun, there was a great DJ and the people were fun. The bartender and waiter kept coming back to check on us, freshing up drinks, and just making sure we were OK... More

We stayed at Be Playa for our wedding in May. We had some issues with other hotels that we booked so my husband and I stayed at Be Playa while our guests were at other hotels. We loved it! The rooftop bar and pool are so relaxing. Breakfast is delicious, and you are just a short walk to 5th avenue... More

Be Playa is a cute and quaint, little boutique hotel with friendly staff and all the necessities! I was told that Playa del Carmen was a hippy town, yet Be Playa was just the right mix of relaxation, class, and modernity to make you feel right at home! It was perfect for my birthday getaway!!!

Very cool boutique hotel in the best part of town near the shopping, restaurants and bars/clubs. You can walk everywhere. the roof top bartender "Chino" was awesome and suggested the best places to eat and drink around town.
