We stayed here for 10 days. The beds are comfortable, every thing is very clean. Every room have a private shower with very hot water and a TV. They change sheets and clean every day. There is a very beautiful kitchen on the roof, with view to 5 av. Not expensive comparing to what you get (40 dollar for a... More

The hotel was nice, basic and clean. If you are looking for a fancy place, this isn't it. It's not bad, it's just a place to lay your head and if you choose to save more money make your own meal up on the rooftop terrace that over looks 5th ave. The room we stayed in was small, but then... More

Air condition is Cold & rooms are spotless. As a woman traveling alone in Mexico I feel very safe staying here. Front desk reception is... More

A wonderful little hotel on 5th avenue! The rooms are clean, nothing fancy, pillows may not be up to par, and they only give you 2 towels but live with it, walk over to Walmart and buy extra towels if you want! I loved the fridges in every room and the kitchen terrace on the 3rd floor was nice for... More

This is a great option as long as you now what you are looking for. The location can't be beat. you are on the main street (5th ave) going through downtown Playa and walking distance to everything downtown play has to offer. A block to the beach. Great common area with balcony overlooking 5th Ave. where you can make coffee... More

Great place if you're traveling on a bit of a budget but would like to avoid bed bugs, water leakage, and uncleanliness often found in hostels around these parts. My friend and I were pleased with the cleanliness and chillaxed atmosphere of the San Juan Pension and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. I met a few... More

We have stayed here now for 4 plus years... we will not book anywhere else and recommend to any friend or family coming to stay. The hotel is clean, friendly , inexpensive and we are well taken care of. It is family owned and the same staff are here year after year. They always remember us and welcome us back.... More

After they tore down our favourite place we had to find another. We have tried many other places in Playa, but for $49.00 this place is hard to beat. The rooms have a fridge and air conditioning and there is an upstairs deck that has a fully furnished kitchen. Not that we ever cook there but it is nice to... More

We stayed at the Pension San Juan because I loved the looks of the outside of the hotel on previous trips. We had the front room on the 3rd floor with domed ceiling. The room was spacious with plenty of storage. We had a king sized bed, a fold down couch with drawers under it, a vanity, large closet with... More
