This hotel is perfect if you don't mind a little walk. Just five blocks from the water I thought it was a great location. The service was good, the common areas were clean. The A/C worked well, The only down side was the pool was shaded buy the lovely trees, and just too cold to use. But over all we... More

The Hotel is definitely a solid 3 1/2 stars - clean, well kept, a good firm bed with clean linens and prompt hot water. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location off the main strip (quiet) but within walking distance of everything. Two blocks from the ADO bus station so no cab needed when you arrive. Wifi doesn't work well... More

Hotel needs updates. It could be a charming place but needs some serious renovations. No breakfast on site. Pool was dirty. Rooms are humid and smelled mildew. Parking is additional (extra $10 to park next door). Not the best Mexican experience in Playa del Carmen for $100 a night plus tax. Staff is just ok. Not recommended.

The bungalow style rooms are perfect and very quiet considering close proximity to all the action. So if you're in Playa to party or chill you'll enjoy either way. I didn't try the pool but it looked fine... I did use the hammock outside my room though :-)

Great hotel with friendly staff and peaceful courtyard. Small pool to go swimming in too. Very close to the main street and beach. Rooms all clean. I've stayed here twice now and both times everything has been fine.

We stayed here for a week at end of September. Hotel is located close to tourist attractions and also close to Supermarkets and locals area. WIFI worked well and rooms are comfortable. All staff were very helpful and keen to make our stay comfortable.

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
