If you are a budget minded traveler you should consider this hotel. Clean and big rooms, close but far enough to 5th avenue and the most popular clubs. The pool is tiny though. The ADO bus station is just one block away for your trip back to the airport.

We are very satisfied with the hotel Playa del Karma! The manager Sam and the staff are so nice and helpful and take care of all the guest in an friendly way. The hotel is very cosy and charmy in the centre of PDC, easily access to the beach, 5th avenue with restaurants and shopping and two nearby big supermarkets.... More

First of all I must tell that we 've got what we expected, and had a really memorable 2 weeks in Playa. If you want to get a five star luxury resort experience this is not a hotel for you. But if you want to get the one of the best location on a good price, with really clean room... More

Location and price are unbeatable. After staying at Tucan, and many other hotels over the years I have been here, I find that this hotel is much better than most, at a fraction of the cost. The staff will go out of their way to accommodate you, unless you're rude and impatient, but that is a given in most places...... More

We stayed in this hotel for five days. the location is good but be aware that if you buy excursions through the hotel, they charge least 10 bucks more than the tour agency (they work with easy tours, I think). And, when we asked two different staff member about the tours, we got totally different prices (the tours were identical-same... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks, the staff is very friendly and helpfull and its close to the beach, shopping and resturants. I wasnt to fond of the room though, the bed was rock-hard and you can hear the other guests thru the walls.

Very clean hotel with the bare minimum. Centrally located in Playa del Carmen . Strong sewer smell all the way down to the beach... dark and musty rooms on the ground floor. Playa del Carmen is overrated. It is one big strip mall with no character.

We just returned from 10 day vacation in Yucatan, and spent 4 night in Playa del Karma. The room is ok, considering the price around the playa, perhaps it's best used of your dollar. Everyone there is friendly. One thing we really want to thank to Samuel is that they checked the room while we are checking out. We are... More
