Pros: Gabriella at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Thank you! Breakfast was good, and the female staff member working most days was very sweet (the male working was never friendly). Room was clean and adequate for our needs with a little mini bar that we could put our own beverages in. Bed was comfy, and... More

If you are in Playa del Carmen, this is a great hotel for relaxing, shopping, beach. Very helpful staff, comfortable room, WIFI, wonderful breakfast included. Very attractive spaces and a charming small pool area. Good services and short walk to the beach, with coupon for beach club chair/umbrella.

First of all, we would like to offer you our sincerest apologies and thank you for your comments, as these help us to grow and improve. During your stay, we had a problem with the swimming pool which caused it to lose water. We did our best to solve this problem as quickly as possible, and we regret that this... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights during BPM Festival last week. We chose the location because of it's extremely close proximity to Mamitas Beach Club and other venues and it was a great price (less than $200 USD per night). I have nothing but positive things to say about this hotel: fantastic breakfast every morn, walking distance... More

We have visited Riviera del Sol twice, the most recent being October 29th to November 5th, 2014. Each time a dozen or so of our friends joined us. It is a beautiful little hotel with nice rooms and a great pool area to spend time with friends. It also has a nice area on the second floor to relax and... More

We stayed here for two nights. It was really cute and convenient to everything. The front desk attendant was so helpful and even recommended places to eat. The beds were a little hard which is the only complaint. Breakfast is included and delicious. Fruit, pastries, and hot options. We'd definitely stay again!

The place is exceptionally located, and at a very affordable price. It isn't luxurious and for that reason I was happy with what I got for the price I payed. My experience was good until breakfast. All I can say about breakfast is WOW!!! Don't expect huge tables full of food or a la carte service. Expect a chef taking... More

We've been visiting Playa for many years and so have watched the city grow from a few places on the beach to the party city it has become and have stayed in many small hotels. This hotel is in a good location, between the nightlife and the beach (although the beach is also nightlife now in this area, and it... More

We stayed here for one night/2 days in January 2015. Check-in was easy and friendly. We were given beach towels and vouchers for 2 seats and an umbrella at Mamitas Beach Club (unfortunately, we arrived at the beach club and there were no seats available). We were also given a drink ticket for 2 drinks at the onsite bar (the... More
