You might call me a creature of habit; but I would say that I am more like someone with good taste who knows what he wants and is looking for in a vacation experience. It is difficult to come up with any new superlative descriptors about our stay at Playa Maya, this being our 4th year in a row that... More

What a wonderful week we had at Playa Maya! We arrived to one of the staff members ready to carry our luggage from the shuttle van to the hotel office through the sand and check in was easy and quick. We were in our room, changed into our swim suites and having drinks within 30 minutes. Truly, a wonderful way... More

Returned last week from our 4th stay at Playa Maya and we had another fantastic trip!! My wife and I can't say enough good things about this little hotel. We love it so much we got married there a few years ago!! The location, the STAFF, and the food (try the fish tacos), are the best on the beach. Also,... More

We have stayed here numerous times. We weren't able to make it last year and since the remodel there seems to have been some changes, none of which are deal breakers. However I loved the new veranda for a couple of drinks while it was briefly raining. When we first got there I wasn't sure if I liked the visual... More

So I don't write a novel, I'd like to second all of the positive things said about this hotel by other reviewers. I've stayed here several times now and will return. Simply the best bang for your buck in Playa. Can't wait to return

10) Unique Boutique Hotel This represents an update to our February 28, 2012 review. We have stayed at Playa Maya for 7-10 days every year since 2008 and still love it. We’ve looked around and cannot find anywhere in Playa del Carmen with the combination of affordability, beach access, and access to Fifth Avenue You are one block from 5th... More

We just got back from an amazing, fun-filled trip to Playa del Carmen! We stayed at Playa Maya because I had stayed at there 12 years ago. I had fond memories of my last stay and verified on TripAdvisor that it was still a terrific hotel. The hotel has kept up very well over 12 years. The hotel was very... More

My friends and I just returned from a very enjoyable trip to Playa Del Carmen last week. The Playa Maya is a boutique hotel right on the beach in town, just a short walk to the shopping, restaurants and people watching of "5th ave". The location can not be beat. Our room was a standard double bed room with an... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Playa Maya for the third Christmas/New Year's in a row. We love this hotel, which is why we decided to stay for three weeks - our longest stay yet! This is not a five star luxury hotel. It is a great, small, boutique type hotel that can fulfill all of your travel needs.... More

You can do much better than this place. The rooms are dated. The place is very hard to find. There is no street access. We walked up and down Playa streets with our luggage in tow trying to find this place. The beach area is small and rocky compared to all the other hotels along the beach. Do a little... More
