We had a relaxing vacation at Playa Palms. The location is perfect near the nightlife and restaurants of 5th Avenue. The staff was great from check in to our room service breakfast to beach lunch and drink service. I think it is a little pricey for what you get, but I would go back.

The property at Playa Palms was in a great location. Close walk to so many restaurants and shopping and of course, the best attraction is the beach which Playa Palms is attached to. We made our reservations through Hotels.com (because they happened to be the sponsors of the website I was on while searching for accommodations). After reading several TripAdvisor... More

This hotel is a perfection! Comfortable, clean with extremely helpful staff and great location with just 3 minutes walk from the centre! The best is a balcony where you can enjoy breakfast and amazing views and then walk barefoot from your room straight to the beach:) as the hotel is not that big it has a nice homey feeling quiet...

We love Playa Palms Beach Hotel! My husband and I decided to get married in Playa del Carmen but we wanted to do it off-resort. We chose Playa Palms based on a recommendation from our wedding planner (Maria Tripaldi of Weddingsinplaya.com - also amazing!) and we were not disappointed. Half of our guests were staying at the hotel (about 7... More

Wow! A tastefully made place on a brilliant location right on the beach. Stayed here for 2 nights as I was passing through and simply loved it. The staff was always very helpful, and overall a great experience. Location is great as it is close to the hang out areas, bars, pubs, restaurants and then ofcourse there is the beach.... More

We had a one bedroom apartment on the street side of the property. Next time I would get a suite on the beach side. There were many all night clubs on our block and the noise was so loud that it ruined any chance of sitting on the balcony after 9:00. The balconies were great too with hammocks and table... More

Loved this place - right on the beach, cute room with a great patio, walking distance to La Quinta shops and restaurants - totally would stay here again. We especially loved the towel animals housekeeping left after refreshing the rooms :)
