This was my third time staying here in three years. Reasonably priced for a perfect location, right on the beach, and away from the ferry docks. But unfortunately, huge new condos will be built on this property, beginning very soon. So get your time in now!

If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep this is it...no extra frills. The rooms were basic but clean. One out of the three rooms we reserved had hot water...the others had luke warm water most of the time. Air conditioning was good for all but one day. The staff was friendly and helpful. The beach out front... More

We stayed in the standard room of this hotel for 5 nights and it was great. Very clean and spacy rooms, free deck-chairs and towels on the beach. Although it was almost next to a club you didn't hear the noise in the room. With a fan and AC it was equipped perfectly. I would surely go back there. I... More

We stayed at the Blue Beach over New Years. We had an upstairs beach front bungalow and our friends stayed in one of the rooms facing the street. Overall we loved it. The location couldn't be better, the beach is one the few left with palm trees, so you can get a little shade during the afternoon. Everyone is very... More

We stumbled upon this place while looking for a room for a few nights on the beach in Playa before we came home. We were able to stay in #11 bungalow for two nights. It is right on the beach looking out at Cozumel and the shipping lane. Lots of small fishing boats are tied up along the beach here.... More

I am a travel agent and use trip advisor to get honest reviews before I book at any hotel I am unfamiliar with. I love this website. But anyway; We have been to Cancun 3 times and thought maybe we'd try Playa. I'll never go back to Cancun again. My husband and I stayed at El Dorado Suites for 4... More

We stayed in one of their Master Suites in February 2006. We faced the street, and were on the ground floor, so had no view of the ocean, but that was fine. Construction of a new condo complex right across the street began at 7am every day, and continued until after dusk. But, of the 40 or so workers, nobody... More

We were astounded when upon arriving at this hotel were given a room not 25 feet from a construction site. The workers start at 7am and finish at 7pm. As if this isn't bad enough they bring in cement trucks to pour cement throughout the day. The noise was unbelievable. When we asked for a room on the oceanside we... More
