We have stayed here 3 times and love this place. It is not a 5 star luxury resort, but if you are looking for clean rooms, friendly staff and literally steps to the beach then this is the place. It is small and quaint and best mango magaritas and coconut shrimp in all of Playa Del Carmen! Great staff. Highly... More

Overall, this is an extremely clean, safe and well-run hotel. We stayed here (2 adults, 2 teens) for two weeks and were very pleased with everything. We stayed in the economy room, which is 2 connecting rooms on the first floor, actually off the reception area. Even though it overlooked the reception area it was surprisingly quiet. And when we...

Loved this quaint little hotel. It's on the perfect part of beach. The service was outstanding. We actually booked a very expensive hotel in Cancun and hated it. So we moved here. Best decision. We had massages on the beach everyday. Cheap and wonderful. Food was so so good.The rooms are nothing fancy but VERY clean and roomy. We had... More

Upon booking our stay for this coming Halloween, I became aware I (apparently) neglected to write a review for our stay last year. (I don't know how that happened!) This place could not be better! Yes, you may have to carry your bags 15 yards, or so, over the sand - if the bell hops don't happen to see you... More

We stayed at Playa Maya for the second time this past May. Our stay this time was for 12 nights. We loved it for the first time last year, and loved it just as much this year. The location is perfect for us. It is directly on the beach and within walking distance of everything we enjoy in town. Yes,... More

My wife and I returned home last night from our second stay at Playa Maya. I made a previous review for our stay last year and just wanted to get this out while our vacation was still fresh in my mind. While I hate to contaminate my review with anything negative, I have to say it grieves me to see... More

Our stay at Playa Maya totally exceeded our expectations. It is right on the beach. We took the ADO bus (very nice) from the airport to the bus station on 5th and hired a bike with seats to take us to our hotel, a few blocks away to 8th street. That was fun. It was an exceptional 10 days with... More

This is a good value for playa del carmen. The hotel rooms are basic but clean and the staff was very helpful. The location is convenient to the nightlife, shopping and restaurants. This is not a great hotel if you expect to swim or hang out on the hotel grounds. You will have to walk to get to a nicer... More

This review is long overdue… however, noting some recent comments… I believe that I should also chime in about Playa Maya! In an attempt to keep this short (and for full disclosure), my family and friends have been staying at the hotel for the past decade… one to two times a year… when rooms are available! There are three key... More

We booked this hotel mainly because of the beach front location AND the numerous glorious reviews. Unfortunately, the only truthful review about this hotel is the "beach front" location. And even that, the "beach" is too rocky to the point that it is unsafe for adults, let alone kids. So, I wonder about the family friendly reviews that this hotel... More

Hello, and thanks for posting your comments here, although of course we were sorry to hear that apparently our property was not a good match for your personal preferences! This was additionally quite a surprise for us, as you didn't mention any issues or concerns to us on site, and Pablo & Fernando in our reception report having asked you... More
