The hotel is even better than I expected. Beautiful, very clean, and very, very pleasant. Nice amenities with WIFI, a must for us. All are very friendly and helpfu, especially Gabriella at the front desk. Your room comes with a couple of cocktails, and a yoga class if you wish. Also included are beach towels, beach chairs and an umbrella... More

One can spend hundreds of dollars to stay at the mega resorts on the beach. Or you can stay here at this very charming and clean hotel with a peaceful oasis of a courtyard only a couple minutes walk from the beach. Rooms were large, clean, and very comfortable. The pool in the courtyard was nice and the staff was... More

We're on our stay here right now as I write the review, sadly the reviews we read when we booked do not tell the whole picture or we would not have booked it. We knew this area had an active nightlife, but that was an understatement, and reports of bars and clubs closing at 11-12 at might was not true.... More

OVERVIEW! We spent 6 nights at RDS in April. Check in was a breeze, we only received 1 room key and a key for the safe but this was fine. We planned our flight to arrive in PDC around 3pm, standard check in time. During the week we noticed a few people being led to their rooms way before this... More

We stayed a week with our children aged 6 and 8. The hotel was clean and then staff were all amazing. We would consider staying again if our kids were not with us and it was a short stay. We are all very sound sleepers and did ok but the lounge or club music was definitely in the background every... More

We stayed six nights in March 2015, and loved it. We like boutique hotels (not mega-resorts) so this was up our alley. Know that up front--boutique feel is different than an all-inclusive ginormous-resort. Things to know: You're one block off the touristy shopping avenue. Great access to restaurants, shops, Starbucks (2 blocks), bars, etc. A tiny bit loud until midnight,... More

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.
