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.

I stayed at Karma for a week in March and had a good experience. The staff is friendly and professionel, and the place is clean with decent size rooms and good king size beds (not to soft/hard). Aircondition works perfect and the common area has a really nice junglish-atmosphere to it even though its a bit small. All in all... More

We found this hotel with tripadvisor, hotel was pretty good. The "swimming pool" looks more like a puddle of water so pointless. BE CAREFUL IF THE PERSONNAL Offer you to post your cards !! We did it and are still waiting for them, 1,5 year later ! They re not reliable so pass your way..

Where to begin? Let's start with the door, or lack thereof for starters. Once we realized the hotel room we had booked online was not the one we were given (which was missing a door, and presented a shoddy, dirty room that had a SLIDING GLASS DOOR with a 'lock' if it could even be called that!), we complained to...

I suppose in a week or two, I'll look back at today and think of it as an adventure, but right now I'm still quite unhappy with the treatment I received at the Hotel Playa del Karma. Probably my own fault for not checking here first before choosing this place to stay while in Playa del Carmen, because as soon... More

First let me say, the pictures look pretty much exactly like the property But I should have not have dismissed the some of the negative comments. The location is good and the staff is excellent. You do get a secure homey feeling here but there are some things that just can't be overlooked. The pool - yes they do clean... More

We (my sister and i) stayed there for 2 weeks in february/march 2013. we had a very warm welcome of the staff. The hotel is very near of everything. It's a very clean place. If you need anything extra - no problem. At the last few days, my sister was very sick. First we needed a doctor, they all managed... More

My girlfriend and I stayed one night at Playa Del Karma in early February, 2013. The location is good, and the staff are very friendly. We got to Playa Del Carmen from Cancun airport by ADO bus.
