The Acanto Boutique Hotel is a hidden gem, located centrally in Playa just off 5th, and only one block away from the beach! The accommodations are very nice, clean and modern feel…and the team of staff at Acanto were top-notch, making our stay very relaxing and memorable. The location of the hotel is perfect, just blocks away from beach access,... More

We were hoping to purchase a unit at Acanto as it appeared to have everything we needed: close to the beach and restaurant/retail scene of 5th avenue so we made the highlight of our Yucatan peninsula trip the Acanto boutique hotel. We splurged on the one bedroom penthouse unit so we could enjoy the private hot tub and BBQ area... More

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding in the area. It was very nice, clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We brought a 2 year old child and they were very accommodating for us. The room was very nice and the hotel grounds are very nice and well-kept. The location is also close to many great... More

I've stayed in many boutique hotels around the world, and Acanto is a real gem smack dab in the middle of Playa del Carmen, without the noise. Just one block off of the main shopping/restaurant pedestrian-only Quinta Avenida, and 3 blocks from the beach, Acanto is a quiet, authentic, and romantic boutique hotel on a cobblestone street surrounded by tropical...

We stayed at Acanto for 4 days. It's centrally located, convenient, and clean. All of the staff were wonderful, especially Italia. The rooftop terrace had a wonderful hot-tub and grill. Walking distance to the grocery store and many restaurants. We could not have asked for more!

Stayed here for 3 nights. Enjoyed how new and clean everything was. The staff was really friendly and the location was great. Only minor complaints were the shower ran cold pretty fast and couldn't get the hot tub warm either. Other than that very pleasant. Centrally located enough to be close to everything but far enough away from the clubs... More

I live here but I had friends coming to get married and mutual friends came too, so I stayed here a week end as well to be closest to them and it was really a great experience. The staff was very friendly and when we needed something they were very helpful. The place is right in the middle of everything:... More

Fantastic location, charming staff and recommendations, kitchen to cook in. I have zero complaints about my stay here, except that it could have been longer! If you're looking for a spot in PDC, Acanto is your go to!

If you go to Playa del Carmen, this is the place to stay. We just returned yesterday, and everything about the place is impeccable. The rooms are modern and comfortable, and the location can't be beat. It's right off the main strip (yet quiet) and directly across the street from an amazing restaurant. You walk (not far) to all the... More
