The main attraction is the cost, it is cheap compared to others, but it's right next to lots of clubs, so you won't be able to sleep unless you're really drunk, so make sure you drink a lot if you want to rest for the next noisy night. I wouldn't recommend it at all.

The noise is extremely loud! its impossible to get some sleep. The manager claudia something is very rude. This is not for people who wants to rest and sleep. The breakfast is also terrible and poo, you end up going somewhere else

First, the GOOD... the STAFF, they are very friendly and helpful. We had a number of problems (see below under "BAD") and they did their very best to solve problems immediately. From the front desk to the cleaning ladies, everyone was very nice and accommodating. We had to change rooms, twice, and were offered a bottle of wine for our... More

The hotel located in the clubs area and very close to the beach, the purpose of my trip were beaches and parties - so it was perfect for me! The employees were very very kind and help me. The room was very clean and high-level, the service was perfect. I can definitely recommend this hotel!(: Yogev, Israel

This hotel is right smack dab in the middle of the disco, club area. There is loud techno music from several clubs from 4:00 pm to 4:00 am. Even my 25 years old daughter thought it was too much. The club scene was fun but stay a few blocks away!

Hotel Cohiba was a clean stay but with a few disappointments. The TV didn't work, there were a few bugs in the bathroom (it is Mexico but its also >$70 a night). My major disappointment was that it was so loud. I can party but loud club music thumping into the room until at least 3 am was a bit... More

First, the pictures you see of the room with thatched roof are of the only room in the hotel that looks like this, and it looks nice but is really hot - so don't book that one, looks are deceiving. We stayed in a room on the 3rd floor. The room was decent, AC worked, the only thing was our... More

The hotel is located right in the middle of Playa's nightlife area, so don't go there if you want quiet nights, as music is blasting loud from the nearby clubs until 4AM. I took the "lounge" room, right at the top, with seaview terrace. The decor is lovely, rustic, there are no windows in this big room though. There was... More
