Deseo is in the middle of everything in Playa del Carmen. It is also the reason why you won't really get much sleep. It's truly a hip and chic boutique hotel but really for the youth. We stayed with a small group of party-goers and had a blast. Again, if you are fond of sleep, I'd think twice.

We hadn't booked anything prior to arriving on a super busy weekend in Playa. We tried a few places that were full and the found Deseo, luckily there was a vacancy for the weekend. So close to everything, just what we needed. The A/C is awesome. Love the rooms, and it was great to relax on the pool deck. Unfortunately... More

Small Boutique hotel in the heart of playa right on 5ta avenida with nightlife and restaurants all around. If you want a place to stay and never use a taxi and have the best restaurants and nightlife 1 or 2 blocks away this is the place. The bartenders make great drinks! This place is chic and cool, not really focus... More

It makes me sad to write this review as my sister stayed here 5 years ago and recommended it to my wife and I on our honeymoon. Playa Del Carmen has grown a lot in 5 years, and to Deseo's detriment it has had a negative effect as Deseo is in such a busy spot now. We stayed in a... More

I stayed here for one night. The music being played both at the hotel bar and the streets around the hotel is very loud and goes very late into the night. The room was a bit strange for me. There is not a separate bathroom, just a few light sheets acting as a wall. Additionally, there is a bathtub in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in April expecting and looking forward to a lively hotel, with accommodation to live up to its price tag. Lively we got! The music from the street did not stop until 6 am , the room is not remotely sound proof and there was a huge construction project next door. Unless you are deaf... More

The first time to Playa Del Carmen it was small fishing village with street tacos....and when I saw the beach I knew I had found a GEM....well so did millions of other people...but I am happy to share! Fast forward 25 years and I still love it in spite of the now slick atmosphere! I finally stayed at the UBER... More

I recently stayed at this hotel and it was a great experience. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I had an issue with the air conditioning in my room and they promptly changed my room. There is a nice roof top pool and bar. They play great music at night, making it a cool place to hang out. This... More

At noon music starts and continues gradually getting louder and louder around 9pm when typically incompetent DJs blast their creations until 12.30am. Then as a guest you get to listen to the town's favorite hot spot "Coco Bongo" more contemporary music which is blasted down the street with mega speakers until 5am. That allows you two hours of rest until... More
