We stayed at the Xtudio Comfort the week before Christmas and were very happy with our choice! It was an easy walk from the ADO bus station, and located close to everything! The full kitchen was great, and our room had two separate bedrooms, which we were not expecting. The rooftop is a hidden gem, and you can see Cozumel's... More

My sister and mother stayed at this hotel right on the 5th Avenue because it is right on the main strip, a short walk to the beach and offers the best value for the money. We stayed on 2nd floor overlooking 5th Avenue and had a full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker and hot plate. It worked out great for... More

Provide access to sister hotel just 2blocks away where we enjoyed lovely afternoon getting some sun by the pool w swim up bar. Very friendly helpful staff. Great recommendations for inexpensive restaurants: Coffee at... More

Great hotel, I have stayed there many times before. if you get the balcony room it overlooks 5th avenue. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms come with a kitchen. If you stay at this hotel you can also use their other hotel by the beach. It has a pool.

You just can't get anything closer to the action (or inaction if you prefer) than this place. Step outside your door and you are on the main drag. Restaurants, pubs, stores and the beach a couple of blocks away. ADO bus station two blocks down the road. Not that anywhere in Playa is too far from the action but this... More

This was my third time staying at Xtudio - what a fabulous stay. The staff is amazing. The rooms are more like apartment, with fridges, coffee maker, micro, etc.. The location couldn't be centralized and being on 5th ave, you can walk to everything. The new rooftop lounge area is perfect for relaxing or people watching. The value can't be... More
