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

I shopped around, in person, at 8 different hotels in the area and similar price range and this was by far the best one. Karla checked in and she was so very kind and sweet. The room was clean spacious and we had a sense of privacy being up on the fourth floor. Just great stay and will be our... More

First of all, this is not a resort or 5 stars hotel! So if you are snobby - do not save your money! Find something else! This is very nice Small Hotel with Perfect Location. If you want to save money and be safe - This Is The Place! I arrived 3 hours before check in time and my room... More

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.
