The price (650 pesos for a double room with a bath) was right on the money for a location right in the heart of old Playa - surrounded by original cantinas and only 2 blocks from the beach. The room was always clean, though privacy was a bit of an issue with two glass sliding doors opposite a sun-soaked wall,... More

This hotel could be lovely if it was just updated a bit. The setup is great - hammocks outside rooms, some areas with thatched roofs, a cute casita at the back. But it's really run down and could do with a lick of paint. I was lucky enough to stay in the casita, which was nice, gave privacy and a... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved the convenient location for the beach and main tourist section on 5th Avenue. The room was large, clean and well presented and the food was good. The hotel was noisy during the night, but it didn't keep us awake for long (a 10 hour flight from UK probably helped there). The staff... More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel that's convenient, this is a great place. We got a room for 600 pesos, we could have had a kitchenette for only 100 pesos more. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. There's a courtyard with a nice pool, the restaurant is good (good coffee!) and the staff is friendly. It's only... More

We have visited Casa Tucan many times over the years. We have been satisfied with the rooms and service. This month, we specifically reserved 2 specific rooms for a reunion. They wrote the numbers down and guaranteed that we would have this room. When we arrived, at the correct time, a line had been drawn through or room numbers. We... More

We stayed at Hotel Casa Tucan over the holiday season in December 2013. The main purpose of our trip was to go diving at one of the local dive shops, and the hotel was PERFECT for this. First, the location is excellent - it's right near 5th Ave (the touristy district), but also just far enough off the avenue that... More

Anyone hoping to stretch their budget should stop here for a meal. Breakfast is great and very reasonable. It includes juice and coffee with your meal. Our second visit this year found us ordering a fish filet in butter and garlic and it was excellent. A beer, soft drink, main course and dessert cost $24.00 for two people. Best fish... More

Casa Tuscan was nice enough and for the price, it is very hard to beat in Playa del Carmen (which tends to be a little on the pricey side - think the Ibiza of Mexico). It does have quite a backpacker feel to it, but it's really well located, only a couple of blocks from the beach and a block... More

The food and service left a bit to be desired. I had the tomato soup and ham and cheese sandwich. They must ration the ham. Soup was warm yet tasty. I was actually hoping to eat at Romeo next door, but closed till 4. This place offers nothing noteworthy
