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

I went to Playa Del Carmen over New Years with a girlfriend and we had the best time at Playa Maya. It was pure relaxation. The staff at Play Maya are wonderful - very attentive but also know when to take a step back and just let you chill out. The ceviche is some of the best I've ever had!... More

This hotel was highly recommended to my husband and I by friends. They loved it and we had the same experience. The service was excellent, from housekeeping to the restaurant and bar. We were close to shopping and taxi service to all the sites. We ate most of our meals at the hotel because the chef prepared them well and... More

Stayed for 8 nights over Halloween (before moving on to Isla Mujeres for 2 nights). I believe we were about the 2nd reservation to arrive (maybe 3rd) after reopening after renovations. We were a little sad to see the construction still going on, but our room (#302) was just a nice; and with the same beautiful view that 301 had... More

This location is great. You are right in the heart of Playa and on the beach. However, the hotel is kind of a dump. I think it really seems like a budget hotel, however it's not that cheap. In hindsight, I would either prefer a nicer hotel further away or maybe a hotel a block off the beach. We wanted... More
