This hotel was highly reviewed and thought this might have been perfect for us because we were traveling slightly more budget. I want to preface this review by saying that I am a very easy going traveler. A few minor issues don't bother me. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME TRIPADVISOR LET ME DOWN. It made me really hesitant to trust... More

Well this is really a bad, bad review. We will have to sit all together and understand why we gave you such a bad experience, while I write I apologize for that. As I often say to my colleagues, when a client isn't happy every thing turns bad : I am really sure more than 400 hundred reviews in this... More

Well from all the previous reviews I read about Barrio Latino on TA, in addition to its high score rating, I must say that I was rather disappointed in our stay and definitely expected a lot more from this hotel! I will start with a positive comment about the hotel staff...Marco and Andreas (I think) were absolutely pleasant, friendly, and... More

Barrio Latino opened his door in 1997. It is a well known spot. Pictures you can find in our web page and in this page, posted by other travelers, are original because we don't need to photoshop them. We don't even serve that coffee and we also serve yoghurt, or chocolate, and fruit juice. When you let me in your... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple days in Feb 2015. Main takeaway - be prepared to not get much sleep at night. There is a bar right next store that blasts music very loud until ~1am, every night! I'm very surprised no other reviewers have mentioned this? So loud it comes thru the walls. And do not... More

Andrea I, Front Office Manager at Barrio Latino Hotel, responded to this review

Hi, The bar next door is named El Balkanero. They close at 11pm because we are in a calm block and when they started playing loud music, all the people of the area complained and now they are forced to close not later than 11pm as a decision of the local government. They are working at a very low volume... More

I have posted reviews of Barrio latino for many years. I stayed here annually as I travel to my home in Mahahual, Mexico. The staff is consistently fantastic. the breakfast minimal but adequate. the rooms clean and beds comfortable. there is a safe in the room. Fans and A/C always work. As time goes on, I feel that Barrio has... More

We stayed here for six nights and loved it! Very clean, comfy bed, nice bathroom, quiet room, friendly staff. Our room also had a quaint balcony overlooking an immaculate, quiet courtyard with a hammock and a line to dry wetsuits and swimsuits = very useful! This hotel is awesome and affordable for a young couple who enjoy relaxing, mellow beach... More

My adult son and I spent two nights here. I was impressed with the front desk staff and their vigilance on the guests' comings and goings. You can't take your key with you so you have to ask for it when you return. They were very helpful during our time there. There was music coming from the establishment next door... More

Really enjoyed the stay and the staff were very nice and helpful, especially Sergio at the front desk. The rooms were very clean, it was peaceful and quite a beautiful place to stay with a convenient location. MY ONLY COMPLAINT is that there are some very unusual and strict rules about only eating your breakfast at the cafeteria, despite the... More

We stayed at Barrio Latino for 3 nights while in playa del carmen. The staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome. The room was OK but not as good as I had hoped. The bed was very comfy and big, but the room itself was a bit gloomy and you couldn't have the curtains open because it was... More

Hello Freya, rooms (every room) face the garden but have a terrace in between with a hammock and chair. big windows open to this view and areas.It is part of the success of the Barrio Latino Hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights brgining of Jan. The hotel is very decent , excellent location and not too loud for where it is.

Hi Mr Ivan. I sent a message to you before answering but I also want to share my answer with other readers. If you consider our Hotel pricy because of the locks in your room, consider this problem solved during next weeks and excuse us if it was a problem for you, but I dare to say that nothing happened...
