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.

Beautifully decorated, a comfortable kingsize bed, enough lighting, a jacuzzi, and 2 rain showers right next to each other. Wifi in the room worked excellent,... More

Have been to Playa a few times in the past 10 years and have seen it expand considerably. Therefore choosing a hotel can prove somewhat tricky. Be Playa did not disappoint. Off the main strip but only a 2 min walk from 5th Avenue. Bright, clean and airy with a great rooftop bar complete with pool overlooking the surrounding area.... More

I had a fantastic time at this hotel. The room came with free breakfast which was very good.. The staff was so nice! The room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. The amenities were wonderful. The location is so great too. You can walk to 5th Avenue, very safe part of town.
