Our winter getaway to Playa Del Carmen was even more extraordinary with our stay at the Gran Porto Real! Our housekeeper Celene Romero did an exemplary job keeping our room tidy and every day making our room a romantic palace with rose petals and towel sculptures. The hotel provides every possible amenity and the staff is super friendly. Most of... More

We booked out stay at Real Playa del Carmen online. We had been to Playa Del Carmen many times prior, always staying at smaller 3 star hotels, so this was a hotel that looked like our "norm". Location was ok, but I prefer to be closer to the main part of 5th. Service was ok. Rooms were below what we... More

Firstly the food and the alcohol were good, the restaurant and the waiters were nice, friendly and generous but the front desk and their service were nothing but horrible and terrible. The whole stay I had headaches and runny nose from some aging flowery smell in the bedroom then for five days we had cold showers. We asked them about... More

I've loved staying at this hotel. It's been beautiful, from the service to the entertainment has been amazing. I think the poolside entertainment and the evening shows have made my stay even better and sets it apart from other resorts. The staff are friendly and over my short stay i have become friends with many of the pleasant staff members.... More

Stayed in this hotel for 10 days. The breakfast food was held over for lunch and then lunch became dinner. The pool was so tiny only 6 people could go in it at at time. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

If you are looking for luxury and class keep going, the rooms were very clean and the staff are very friendly. The location was excellent, just far enough from the constant goings on, on the main drag. We upgraded to their sister Hotel, the Gran Porto, well worth the extra dollars, the food was awesome and the hotel is beautiful.... More
