Great location. Next to a lot of food and market places, stores, and close to the ocean. Rooms are clean and good enough when you arrive in an amazing place like that. Make sure you wont stay in any hotel room cause the city is amazing and thats wasted time.

Perfectly situated, great service, really clean and even though they are situated right on the Quinta Avenida, it is not that noisy so you can easily go to bed when you feel like!!! They have a little restaurant that serves really cheap breakfast! Thanks for everything!

This hotel was exceed my expectation overall. The hotel staffs are very friendly, polite and willing to assist anything you need. The distance from the beach and 5th avenue located most of awesome restaurants and shops is very close that made my trip very convenience. However, it is really hard to get wifi signal in the hotel room.

This hotel met my expectations for a last minute getaway. Very clean rooms, good ac and friendly service. Very close to the beach. Walking distance from nightlife, but quiet at night. No wifi signal in 205 but it was strong in the lobby. Would come here again.

Mateo, thank you... And also Giovanna and the all others thank you so much for the sincere hospitality. Hotel is small but has a big heart and very friendly. Hotel is in the middle of the city center on 5th avenue, you can reach everywhere by walking. When you go playa del carmen you should stay in Banana Hotel...

Great location, cozy little hotel. They provide discount coupons for Mamitas beach club which was very cheap and we used it several times. Rooms are cleaned daily and it was the first hotel in which I've seen towel decorations made every day. Loved it!

We relocated to Hotel Banana from somewhere a little pricier and were pleased with our choice. The room was cool, clean and spacious. The staff, especially Roberto, were friendly and helpful. It's nothing flash but comfortable enough. We would definitely stay again.

It's location was good but the hotel was out dated and a little run down, beds were hard and rooms were dark, for the price it was not worth the stay. The breakfast was left out in the open and ants were crawling all over the coffee cake that was served to clients, gross.
