The room and kitchen were modest but had a nice balcony, a fun design and an overall great value for the price. Breakfast in the morning was nice and the hotel was located right in the middle of everything. The thing I liked the most was the treehouse decor. I had to cross a few bridges and greet a few...

First of all, the staff were really nice and kind. We stayed there for 4 nights and really enjoyed it, the tree house decor is really nice and cozy. We took a smaller room an the second floor and it was really all we needed- an equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom and a big bed. The hotel really gives you both... More

It's a small hotel. Clean and cozy. With breakfast, fruit, bred, coffee, juice, etc. It's very near to the best clubs in playa. A good place to stay in. And the price it's as good as any good hostel. I recommend it

Cute little hotel a block from the strip and a block from the beach. Hotel staff Alex and Manuel were excellent and extremely accommodating. The hotel is situated in the heart of playa next to nightlife, restaurants and really anything you need. We would stay again for sure. Our room was upgraded with no hassle as well. It has a... More

This is a tired hotel. While in a good location, the room was very modest and the bathroom fixings were rusty and kind of creepy. I was awoken by noisy neighbor guests in the middle of the night and then again in the early morning. That was a drag. The staff at the hotel was lovely and the booking was... More

Can`t say enough great things about the staff and location. Loved my room with the patio that looked onto the street with their beautiful lights. Read the reviews commenting on the noise and yes I could hear the clubs faintly with the door closed and air on but I can sleep through a little noise so it didn`t bother me.... More

Stayed in hotel eclipse in July for a week. Very good location as it is near to all the night scenes in playa del Carmen and walking distance to Walmart. Rooms are value for money and clean. Free wifi. Breakfast was almost the same everyday but decent and coffee was nice. Small hotel but very helpful staff especially the lady... More

Everyone at eclipse was wonderful, especially Alex! Our room, the Robinson Caruso was perfectly cozy. We were in town for a family wedding and hosted a dinner in their common area, they took very good care to make sure we had everything we needed. I can't wait to go back and I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
