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

I am sorry that your stay at Casa Freud was not fot your full satisfaction. Some time ago we switched from a usual hotel to a guesthouse with room service twice a week. 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. The staff was really nice and cute little bar in front was great to people watch and chat with others. The price was really cheap for what I got. Was worth way more and better than... More

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

We have stayed here several times and it has never disappointed . Love the music and bar next door , just adds to the fun . Staff is very friendly too . It is a bit loud at night so if you have little ones they would need to be good sleepers . Nice central location ez walk to beach

This little hotel is a gem of a find. My boyfriend and I stayed in Room 14, a gorgeous room with tile floors, lovely bathroom, and ac/tv. (We didn't use either, but they're there!) It is on the ground floor and opens into they courtyard. There is a great hammock/swing and a little table outside for your use. There's also... More

This place is very well located in the main street and the room are fine, clean, big and comfortable, but, there is a restaurant next door with live music every night which makes your sleep quite difficult. We booked a room that was not ready for us when arrived, we have to spend one night in one room and the... More

OK, first of all, the location of this place is amazing. Right on 5th Ave. Great for people watching, fantastic patio. As other reviews have mentioned, if you want it quiet this is not the place for you. But if late night music doesn't bother you, and you enjoy people watching from your patio- this place is perfect. We stayed... More
