We enjoyed staying at Hotel Banana in Playa del Carmen. When we arrived, we were given a nice room, but with no balcony. We simply asked for a room overlooking 5th ave., and were switched to a different room the next day. Very accommodating, as the hotel didn't seem too full. Our room was 304 and we were really happy... More

We stayed two nights in March and loved it! The place is very clean and in a great location. The staff, especially Salome and Matteo, we're very friendly and helpful. The rooms have great air conditioning and a mini refrigerator. Free Wi-Fi is available. For a basic budget boutique hotel, it is a great value. We will stay here again.

This hotel was the perfect match for me and my partner. It was exactly like what it shows in the pictures and the people that worked there were lovely. This is the type of hotel that middle-class Mexicans would stay at because it's a good price and value. FYI the beach that is just down the street floods with sewer... More

Excellent location. Great value. Friendly staff. Clear and safe.The best part of beach is a couple blocks away, with discount for chairs and beach umbrella. The oweners give to you a personalized service. You will feel at an inn in Banana. The 307's internet signal must be improve.

Booked this place at the last minute, over the New Year period in Playa del Carmen. Only a few minutes walk from a beach, the action, bars, most of the restaurants, shops and more atmospheric beaches are all a hood 10-15 min walk up the main strip. Nice enough room, mural across a whole wall, clean sheets and towels, decent... More

This was a great place to stay right in the heart of Playa del Carmen. The location on the north end of Avenida Quinta couldn't be beat. It's right on the pedestrian street with easy access to a ton of shops and open air restaurants and only 2 blocks from Mamita's Beach Club. We had a third-floor room with a... More
