I discovered this hotel when I went for a yoga class in their studio. It was off the beaten path and seemed to be a nice quiet hotel. You get a good value as it is very clean and safe, with the front lobby protected by big wooden doors. The restaurant had a nice breakfast on the beach and the... More

My significant other and I stayed at this hotel this past summer and had a great time. Upon arrival, it was very surprising that the room had no TV, I asked front desk about this and was advised the owner has this idea of making the hotel a very relaxing place without the noise of the TV, I was happy...

I love it. if you haven't been to Playa you need to go. Staying at Alhambra is the easiest vacation experience ever, with the most choices. The hotel is on... More

Although we didn't stay at the hotel, the restaurant was great. This was my second visit to Alhambra restaurant, also visited last year. The food is decent and the staff and the view are amazing. Our favorite was the Caribbean ceviche.

My daughter and I stayed at Alhambra for 7 fantastic days. The hotel is spotless, light and calm. When we arrived Fernando had already corrected my online booking and our stay was even cheaper. We were on the 3rd floor in a standard/balcony with a view of the quiet street, palm trees and ocean. There is a small pool in... More

After nine trips to Mexico and staying at resorts, we decided to try something different. This small hotel located on the beach, in town, and at a great price was something we could not pass up. It exceeded our expectations and made our tenth trip to Mexico, our best trip. However, if you are looking for fancy accommodations, this is... More

Cannot say enough good things about Hotel Alhambra! My husband and I stayed here for six nights with another couple, and had an amazing experience! Firstly, the location could not be better! Quiet street that leads right to the beach and close to everything, including favorite restaurants and shops. Our room was a standard balcony that had a great view... More

We've never stayed at the Alhambra Hotel, but it is our favourite place to eat and drink in Playa Del Carmen. It's right on the beach and the food and drink is always fantastic, reasonably priced and plentiful. The corona for instance was half the price as other restaurants. We always pay for a sun lounger with brolly for the... More

I booked via their online reservation the 'Ocean Front Room' advertised as a room for a large family or two couples. We arrive late in the evening, two tired children in tow only to be told that the Ocean Front room does not accommodate a family as it only has one bed. They tried to insist that we take the... More
