This is a really cute hotel on one of the corners of Playa's 5th Avenida. Right from when I entered the doors, the staff were amazing and very genuine. I think the concierge's name was Salome, she was fantastic and made me feel so welcome. It was very affordable for what I got, clean, excellent location plus the midday checkout... More

Stayed here for almost three weeks. The staff is super friendly and do what they can to help you. The rooms are clean and neat. They clean rooms every day. It's a nice and quiet hotel even though it's located right on 5th avenue. Close to the beach and also shopping is right out on the street if you need... More

Right on 5th Avenue, but on a quieter end of the street. Spotless rooms, comfy beds, TV was an old one, but it worked. We weren't there to watch TV anyway. Cute little pool to take a dip in. Look at the pictures people posted - super cute boutique hotel that's earned its high ratings here on trip advisor. The... More

Don't overlook this hotel. We stated here because the location and price was right. And because of the reviews we had read on TA. We still were not prepared for the experience. The professionalism of the staff, clean rooms, service, close proximity to great beach, beach chairs and umbrellas for 15 pesos, small but really nice pool in atrium. Don't... More

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...
