So, the room was nice... basic, but clean and comfortable. There was decent wifi, nice aircon and a barfridge that came in handy. The location has its pros and cons... right off the main drag,...

Only drawback is that this hotel is not easy to find - especially since the address given is incorrect. Located on 5 Norte between 6 and 8th streets, close... More

The hotel is just in the center of playa d carmen with a really nice patio and an italian restaurant. The rooms are big and clean. The owner Marieta is a really nice and friendly person. The hotel is just 5 min walking to the beach and you can fund really nice shops and restaurants near by.
