Every hotel in town was booked for that saturday evening. The only one who had a space was this one. When we arrived the lobby was refreshingly cool (AC appreciated at noon) the staff was super friendly. The room had everything we needed, coffee maker, mini fridge, queen bed and an extra bed too. View towards the swimming pool, but... More

Had a great stay at play Carmen. Just down the road from the beach. Rooms were very clean, nice hot showers and cold AC. Pool and outside common area was a nice place to unwind. Price is right for something more upscale then a hostel bed,

Hotel Playa Carmen is a perfectly centrally located beach hotel near the southwestern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Not only is it a two-minute walk from one of the most popular beach breaks in the area, but it is within walking distance of the supermarket, bakery, pharmacy, dentist, bank, restaurants, retail shops, and other amenities. The 3rd... More

This appears to be the best place in town, very new and modern. I see that others are paying $60 cash. We were hit at $70, but it was still very nice indeed. Good stroll to the beach. Nothing but surfing waves on the beach. Nothing big, but there was not a storm coming in. Plenty of cool air and... More

If you are a surfer on a budget this might be the perfect place for you. It is less than a block from the beautiful beach, and at $60 it is certainly more clean and modern than other accommodations you would find for the same price. We drove by, checked out the room and thought everything looked good so we... More
