Once again, staying at Casa Freud --I can't even count how many times I've been here and have stayed in most of the rooms. :) It was nice to be back and to see they have been renovating some more. Now they even have a nice pool in the garden area. The location is perfect, in the middle of everything.... More

We were 5 Italian guys, for 10 days we got the penthouse, a big apartment based in 2 floors with 3 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms + big balcony with table where you can relax. It's in the 5th avenue, 5 avenida near the corner With the 10th. For my opinion the best location in playa Del Carmen if you care... More

Thank you for your nice review, we hope to see you again soon. The party is still going, but the BPM ends tomorrow (18th of January)and Playa del Carmen will settle down again. Here in Playa, we just broke New Years Eve records. The Riviera Maya, especially Playa del Carmen is the NYE destination for most of Europe and North... More

We got suite #6 which has its own entrance on 5th avenue and a terrace with a great view over the avenue. It is perfect if you plan on partying every night or if you like to listen to classic rock music from the bar next door until 2am which we didn't mind at all. I'm not fond of the... More

We had the penthouse for the whole family, which was convenient. The place was not very clean, there were a lot of bugs, specially in the bathroom. The top room didn't have enough a/c, the shower just trickled water, the safe (which you have to pay for) worked only some times. Yes, it's noisy but we knew that from other... More

I contacted and booked with Casa Freud directly and it was very simple. The owner is very responsive and helps find the right room for you. I wanted to be in the middle of all the action and I took Suite #5 which is up on second floor with a terrace overlooking 5th Ave. Great spacious room, queen (maybe king?)... More

I just returned from staying at Posada Freud for 7 days. For starters, I did read the reviews on the site before I still decided to go ahead and book my hotel. With that being said, the reviews did not lie. The place is right on 5th a little hard to find when you first get there but if you're... More

The house offers greate security, entrance (gate) is closed all day long, no one can enter without the house keyes. Beach towels and safe box keys are... More

I only stayed here 2 nights, but it was a nice clean little place with a friendly staff. It's right on 5th Ave, easy yo get to everything. It's not fancy, and really has no amenities. But if you're needing something economical and clean, this is a good option. There is a noisy bar next door, but you're on vacation...... More

I stayed here a few years ago but it was perfect when I did! It's right on quinta avenida and close to the beach.

We stayed here already a year ago, but this time was a little disappointing. First of all, the well known after hour club la Santanera is newly located in Calle 10 between 5th and 10th avenue. This means, almost next door to the Posada and therefore loud electronical music until 6 in the morning, almost every night. Secondly, the rooms... More

This is a really nice and good value option for staying in the heart of Playa del Carmen. We received a warm welcome when we arrived - there is someone at reception for most of the day and night, which makes you feel very secure and looked after. The bed was really comfortable, and the room was cool (we did... More
