We have stayed here several times in the past 15 years. For Playa, it is an affordable hotel with nuts and bolts basics. It IS right on the beach, with parking, and it is one block from the touristy 5th Avenue, centrally located. There is a hotel restaurant that closes around 6 or 7 on the beach, too. Service is...

Not bad for its price. The hotel looked quite run down. The staff were not that helpful, didn't help with the bags and said they didn't have access to the booking confirmation from booking.com The WiFi didn't work while we were there. The location was great, 50m from the beach and 100m from the 5th avenue. The room was quite... More

Honestly this was my favorite part of the stay on my recent trip to Mexico. I booked 3 nights wearily after reading the reviews. I spent about $250.00 on 3 nights and I would say it was amazing value for what I payed. If you are going to Mexico for a luxury stay and want to be pampered you should... More

The only good thing about this hotel was that it is on the beach, which is NOT private to the hotel. Anybody walking by can use the beach so if your not on it early you risk not getting a spot. The club next door plays loud, really LOUD, disco/club music until 6 - 7am. I thought when I read... More

We stayed here for two nights $100 per night which we thought was fabulous considering the water view. In fairness, were warned that the front room would be noisy because of the Blue Parrot nightclub, but thought it'd be fine anyway as we would be out those nights ourselves. In honesty, our warning was an understatement, and it did not... More

Since this hotel is right on the party scene the noise wont let you fall asleep unless you go to bed at 7 am. The rooms are quite dirty and poorly kept. It all depends on whether you mind the noise and the dirt. Good option if you are to stay for one or two nights and plan on going... More

This is the worst "hotel" I've ever seen! We were supposed to stay here for two weeks but allready the first meget we checked in to a hotel next door! The room wasn't cleaned, there were fungus in the shower and also a glass of water with mold in it! I actually cried when we arrived. We would probably get... More

The biggest problem we had is that it was IMPOSSIBLE to sleep because of the really loud music. I understand that it's expected due to its location (very close to clubs) but they could've mention it in their site or something. The music stopped around 6am everyday. To make things worse, there were some repairs been made in the hotel... More
