My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in April. I was surprised at just how trendy and stylish this hotel was. Reception staff were very friendly. The rooms were spacious and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Jacuzzi suite during our stay, we did move rooms once but it wasn’t a problem. The rooms had... More

We had just spent a few weeks in Tulum and wanted to try out Playa Del Carmen as we were practically horizontal we were so relaxed after heavenly Tulum. Whilst we were in Tulum we had heard so much about Be Tulum we ventured down to have a goo. There was no denying it was a beautiful property but, personally,... More

I've been there for 5 days! Great Hotel, great staff... Everybody was very nice, friendly and very helpfull!! I recommend this hotel! Close to 5th Av, close to the beach... The pool area is so beatiful! The room is very clean, beatiful design. I have no doubt I would stay there again!

We just returned from 4 days at Be Playa. Some good things and some bad things: 1. Elevator worked about half the time. Sometimes the door was wide open to the elevator and you could look down the shaft. VERY dangerous. We were scared it would stop and we couldn't get out. Should put sign on elevator when it is...

Dear "calblond53", We are sorry to read you didn't have the best of times in our hotel. Perhaps it wasn't the type of hotel you needed, and we are sorry about that. We did the best for you and all the other guests, but it seems it wasn't enough. Thanks for staying with us. Kind regards, Be Playa Management More

We stayed here at the end of April for 5days. It was the best vacation to Mexico so far. We've been 1/2 a dozen times or so. Can't wait to stay here again. Best place to stay if you like walking, shopping and bar hopping at night, along 5th ave. Great food too.. GET THE UPGRADE for the larger room... More

This boutique hotel is in the heart of downtown Playa. Walking distance to all the restaurants, shops, and beaches. It's a small hotel with 4-5 floors and 5 rooms per floor. It has a tiny dingy elevator and a stairwell that runs down the middle of the building. There is a bar/club on the roof, so at night, it gets... More

Be Playa is an ecclectic hotel but it is missing some important features. If you do not book a larger suite, you will be in a very small cramped room, so you may want to spend the extra money for the space. The standard room that we had was very uncomfortable. There is no door to the bathroom so no... More
