Comfortable, clean, good location, very nice people. Internet was terrible (the manager said that this was a problem in all of Playa del Carmen). a/c worked well and there was a nice sitting area in the courtyard. A good choice.

The room is very comfortable, the AC is quiet and the hotel is only 2 blocks from the 5th Av. enough to keep the noise away and have a good rest after party. You walk 3 blocks to the beach and 1 block to the bus station if you are thinking to keep traveling within Mexico. The service from front... More

Hi there I was there last week for 10 days. The position of the Hotel is great, in the middle of Playa del Carmen in front the Catholic Church. It is very quiet, clean and the attention of the lobby staff very good. Negative point: rooms too humid, wifi too slow most of the nights.

I also took the Lonely Planet recommendation. Unfortunately, my experience mirrored one that I had sixteen months ago in a Playa del Carmen hotel, one that used to be recommended by Lonely Planet but no longer is. There is a weird atmosphere of suspicion, at least at this level just above basic accomodations, of hotel guests in Playa del Carmen.... More

We chose this "hotel" because it is a Top Pick in Lonely Planet. Usually LP is pretty reliable in their recommendations. But in this case they were way way off. I'll give LP the benefit of the doubt and assume the hotel has changed for the worse in the two years since LP visited. We stayed two night in room... More

I only needed one night and this was the best value for me in Playa. As others have written, it is 2 blocks off of 5th Ave and 2 blocks from the secondary bus station. VERY friendly staff. I needed a fridge and was brought one with a simple request. There was a "special" for 500 pesos. The room was... More

Great silent place! The room was very clean, the location is very good (5 min walk from the main street), very nice and helpful stuff. The price is not cheep, breakfast is not included, good WiFi.. We been there for 3 nights and were very pleased with the place!

What a value. $65/night was more than a bargain. A short walk to 5th Avenue which is the main drag of Playa Del Carmen. The room is very simple. Wi Fi reception is fine. Hot water took a while to come on, but it worked fine. Clean room. No complaints. Would come here again.
