I've never been one to cry for the comforts of home while away on my travels. That said, staying at the White Sand added to the charm of my overall experience in Playa Del Carmen. The rooms are very typical of little beach towns and the boutique hotels that often line them. Tile floors, not a whole lot of room... More

We spent a $150 dollars a night and it a serious rip off! The room was tiny, barely enough room to walk around the bed. It was dirty with the fixtures in the bathroom either moldy or rusty.

Staying at this hotel was a bittersweet experience. On the good side, the hotel location is amazing at 14th and 5th, right off the main drag in the middle of it all. It was very quiet, and the rooms were very clean and modern looking. The price was unbeatable for this part of town, we paid $175 for four nights.... More
