Great little hideaway only one block from beach. Staff very friendly and want to tend to your every need. Guillermo was super bartending at the roof top pool. Beds are clean and rooms are spotless. Pool is only for dipping. Location Location Location is the best way to describe it.

Very clean, cute and cozy. Right next to the beach and a little convenience store. Not too far from the bus station. Staff is very helpful and nice.Free wi fi! I would definitely recommend this place, the most bang for your buck! Very reasonably price in comparison with other properties.

The Illusion in a beautiful hotel in an excellent location between La Quinta and the beach in Playa del Carmen. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The service is friendly and efficient. There is a cozy, wading pool and bar area on the rooftop terrace.. Warning: When my wife and I stayed here in February 2016, there seemed to... More

The hotel is clean and staff are friendly. I really liked the style of the building. The breakfast is good, particularly the fruit offered. The towels shaped into dolls and animals in the bedroom each morning is a nice touch. The negative side for me was the location in that I could hear music throughout the night and into the... More

The position of the hotel is very good. It is located between the street with the most activity in Playa Del Carmen and the beach. Also the staff is ok, but could do better. Contrary to what is written there is no restaurant, only a small buffet for breakfast and a map of "restaurant" with burger and pizza, nothing like... More

I stayed here for a few days in January and loved it! The ocean view is one of a kind, breakfast is delicious and I was getting a new animal made out of my towel every day. I'd definitely stay again :)

We've stayed at numerous All-Inclusive resorts while vacationing in the Playa del Carmen and Mayan Riviera area. The Illusion Boutique was the first time we were on our own, and we loved it! We had a large 1-bedroom suite, with a little balcony that opened to a lovely garden courtyard. We opted to pay extra for a daily continental breakfast,... More

We just got home from spending six wonderful days at Illusions in Playa. The location was perfect for us, just steps away from both the beach and 5th street. The staff always greeted us with a smile and were very helpful. It is a small hotel and the rooms aren't the grandest, but they were nice, very clean, and everything... More
