We stayed at Banana Hotel for a week over Christmas holidays. Our flight was delayed so we arrived after check in and a security guard was there to help us. Although he didn't speak English he was very friendly and still managed to communicate everything that was important. (I know a tiny bit of Spanish too which helped) The hotel... More

I stayed here a couple of times. The rooms where good, the ac was great, they were missing a couple of things like a coffee maker, little fridge and microwave but for the price of the room you have the little bar downstairs. The place is clean and the rooms comfortable. The staff is very friendly and kind. La peatonal... More

Is a simple and warm hotel. People in the Hotel is so friendly and kind. The hotel is so clean. If You are looking a clean, safe and good price hotel, this is the right option. It is not luxury but is the greatest place if You would like to feel the atmosphere in the heart of Playa del Carmen

Banana Hotel is a clean, comfortable, cheap and beautiful place and staff really kind. It is located near playa Mamitas and you can find a lot of restaurants and shops around. It is a really good option when you visit Playa del Carmen.

Here's a review of Hotel Banana in Playa del Carmen, QRoo, Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula. First off, don't stay here if you want a resort because you won't get one. Stay here if you want: --Clean sheets, rooms, towels and facilities, --Access to the main tourist street, Avenida 5, in Playa, --Quick access to the beach, scuba diving, tours,... More

This hotel is well located at the quieter end of PDC. Rooms were clean, a bit Spartan and hot water in short supply. we enjoyed our own happy hours on our tiny balcony watching the passing parade on 5th Avenida. Close to beach clubs and even though they gave discount vouchers for Mamitas we found that we preferred to pay... More

We were a little hesitant to stay in this small hotel, as we had been happy at the Real PDC AI the past 2 yrs. But since they closed, and this is in the same area, we took a chance. It is a great neighborhood, with many shops and restaurants very near. The rooms were bigger than expected, the water... More

This a great budget hotel. Perfectly located, on the 5th Avenue, next to restaurants, bars, shops, farmacies, around 300 meters from the beach. Don´t expect something fancy because this is not the place for that, it doesn´t try to be something is not. It has amazing, friendly and helpful staff, willing to help you with anything you need. I recommend... More
