This hotel is right on the beach. If you get a upper story room, you can look right out to the ocean, plus get a nice breeze, they have air condition and a ceiling fan, you can use either or both. We used both. Rooms are clean and spacious, maid service was excellent, has tv with cable and nice balcony,... More

My wife and I, along with another couple booked a master suite, garden view, for Feb. 3 thru Feb. 9 of 2006. We booked this in August of 2006 and had a reservation and confirmation number. Upon arrival on the 3rd we were advised that our Master suite was not available until the 4th. After registering our disapproval, to no... More

My family (myself, husband, and two kids ages 6 and 3) went to Playa Del Carmen last spring, and are planning our next trip there again this summer! We found Blue Beach via the internet and liked the location and price,and we are easy to please so we figured we could handle any less-than-awesome lodging. We were so pleasantly surprised... More

I was quite happy with the Blue Beach hotel and plan to stay there again. I had a standard room which was not luxurious but was very clean and very reasonable. We really don't spend that much time in the room anyway, too much to do! We love the beach and so it was very convenient to just walk around... More

Spent the day (not night) at Blue Beach while on a cruise. Had a "garden view" room. No garden view - only view of side street with construction. But the beach front views were very nice. If I was spending the night, I would have gotten the beach front or the beach front bungalow right on the beach. Front desk... More

I must warn you about staying at this hotel. We stayed at Blue Beach for 4 nights. Our $300 camera flash was stolen from our luggage by hotel staff. The hotel room had a safe. When we asked the reception for the key to the safe they told us that there was no key. So everyday we made sure we... More

We arrived at the hotel for our Garden View Jr Suite and were placed in a Street side room. No view of any Garden or the Ocean. We complained at the office and were told we needed to call our Travel Agent. We asked to use the phone (no phone in the rooms) They said NO. After looking for 45... More

We stayed at the Blue Beach and found it good for the price. We had 4 couples and had each room category covered. The beachfront bugalow ground floor was very convenient to the beach but has zero privacy. The security guard pretty much sat on the front porch all night so you were definitely safe but since there is no... More

This was my third trip to Playa, and I have stayed at the Blue Beach Hotel all three times. Overall I was very satisfied with my stay. The hotel is not a extremely fancy place like one of those resort hotels. It's smaller and more down to earth (just like Playa). The hotel is on the beach but close enough... More
