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

The staff English is not a requirement, but it was fun with the hand gestures. My room had a loud a/c, old tv and little hot water. The bed was like sleeping on a board. I was staying all inclusive, the only meal I enjoyed was breakfast and it was limited. 43.00 a night all inclusive Can't say I'll return... More

I got bumped here from one of the other Tukan properties so I ended up only paying about $45 USD a night when the going rate is around $75-100 so I cannot really complain. As others have noted the property is pretty worn. The rooms could use a renovation. I had a very small balcony, old style TV, and dated... More
