Worst hotel experience ever. Very near the beach but not the nice part of it, lots of rocks and seaweed. Hotel room is on two floors and you have to use some scary, danger-loving ladder to get to the top. There was also bugs in the shower and no hot water. To top it all off, there was no A/C... More

We were originally booked here for 3 nights, and stayed 5 instead. We enjoyed the location (being 50 meters from the beach) 5th avenue was 30 meters away from the hostel if your into the touristy playa del carmen, and are there to buy sunglasses and Nik Naks, we definitely didn't enjoy it. It was overpriced for food and drinks... More

We stayed at the hostel for 7 nights, extending twice as we loved Playa. The accommodation was a great price and the location is fantastic-located on the block between the beach and main street Ave 5. We found there to be a big bug issue. Ants were everywhere and looked liked they've eaten through the roof structures. I had a... More

If you look for a fancy, american style hotel with all the stuff you got at home, you are at the wrong place! This wonderful b&b is the perfect place to let you relax in the middle of playa and right next to the ocean. The stuff is great, the rooms are being cleaned every day and have everything you... More

This little hostel has an amazing location, seconds away from the main street, though it keeps a chilled atmosphere. The rooms are in small cabanas, the staff is very friendly and will help you for many things, we even had one of the guys make us enter for free at a disco. Since there are many couples, it's not a... More

I stayed 2 nights there. They are located on the beach. You can put your stuff in the lockers, leave your keys to the reception and take a walk on the beach. It rained when I was there but it didn't matter because I was in my swimsuit and didn't need to walk off the beach to return anyways. The... More

Popol Vuh is perfectly situated in the Centre of Playa del Carmen with its own beach entrance, the accommodation is excellent in terms of value for money, the staff are very friendly and do their best to make your stay a happy one. I stayed 10 days and will return before I leave Mexico.

Dirty rooms. Dirty bathroom. Sink area in bathroom floods everyday due to poordrainage. Bedbugs. Filthy kitchen area. Refrigerater is disgusting. Infrastructure is literally falling apart around you. The only redeeming quality is a very good breakfast and great-great location.
