Great location, friendly and helpful staff, very kind and attentive to our needs. Mamita's beach are very close to hotel. Coffee shops are nearby. Good reading area on the second floor. Rooms with 5th Ave view are not quiet.
We will be back next year.

I was looking to spend, in an easy ro reach place, a few days of rleaxation. It has been a wonderfull experienced. An easy to reach place from the airport of Cancun, the Hotel is in an excellent location, on the principal road and close to the wonderfull beach. The Hotel is a very charming one, where you see that they take care of all the details. The decoaration is really personal and you see that hte managers love their job and want to pass their passion to you, making your stay unique.
If you go to playa del Carmen, definetely this is the place to stay.

The location is great! The hotel is very pretty...I fell in love with its design and deco with all the little details and plants everywhere!! So clean and tidy and smells good not only in the room but common spaces too. Lovely reading/gathering areas in 1st floor and terraces + jacuzzi with view to the 5th avenue! The staff was very nice and helpful.
The ONLY thing i didn't like: my room was street front (5th avenue) and the window had some parts with glass and some others just wooden lattice with NO glass...so you could hear almost everything from outside. I couldn't sleep until the bars across the street were closed (+-2.00 a.m. week days & very late on weekends!!). If the rooms had insonorized windows it would be the perfect hotel in Playa del Carmen! My parents stayed in an room with a small patio (not street front), they could still heard some street noise..but not enough to ruin a good night's sleep.
I would definitely go back to Quinto Sol...but not to a street front room (only if the windows are changed)!

La ubicación excelente! El hotel es muy lindo...me enamoré de su diseño y deco, con sus detalles y planta por todos lados!! Muy limpio y ordenado, muy rico aroma no sólo en las habitaciones sino también en los espacios comunes. Cuenta con un espacio muy hermoso para reunirse a charlar o de lectura en el 1er piso y terrazas, además del jacuzzi con vista a la 5ª av! Todos los del staff y los mismos dueños muy simpáticos y atentos.
Lo único que no me gustó: mi habitación daba a la 5ª av. y las ventanas tienen partes de vidrio y otras sólo celosía de madera sin vidrio, por lo que se puede escuchar praticamente todo de afuera. No podía dormir hasta que cerraban los bares del frente (+-2.00 a.m. días de semana y muyyy tarde el finde de semana). Si las habitaciones tuvieran ventanas insonorizadas sería el hotel perfecto para Playa del Carmen! Mis padres se quedaron en una habitación interna con un patiecito, si bien desde ahí también se escuchaba algo del ruido de la calle...no era tan molesto como para no dejar dormir. Si tienen sueño liviano recomiendo hab. interna!
Definitivamente volvería a Quinto Sol...pero no a una hab. externa (sólo si cambian las ventanas)!

Room Tip: Street front rooms are very noise because of the bars across the street. For good night sleep I reco...

Hotel Quinto Sol in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, is a Beautiful Hotel in a Great location. The staff were very kind and attentive to our needs, walking distance to Mamita's Beach, which is the best beach in Playa Del Carmen. Furthermore, you have restaurants, coffee shops, super markets like Mega & Wal-Mart Super Center all within easy walking distance, as well as shops that sell Mexico's beautiful arts and crafts.

Room Tip: If you have a special request like bedding be sure you enter what your needs are, this way the hotel...

Nice Hotel, Good Location and Friendly staff. Close to the beach, nice resturaunts and plenty of shopping. Move off the strip for better prices on suvies and local food. Lots of beautiful women from everywhere in the world. Save time for excursions out of town. There is plenty of world history within hours of this great destination!

This is a Lovely place...It has the best location (walking distance from the best beaches, bars and restaurants). The staff is extremely kind and make your stay the best experience. You feel the unique vibe of playa with all the elegance of a boutique Hotel. The place is full of spaces where to chill, having a glass of wine or a drink. The jacuzzi on the third floor let you watch people walking the streets

When in Playa, try to book for Hotel Quinto Sol. Its location is excellent, at the 5th Avenue and within a few steps to a nice beach. The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere very warm because of the deco.

The rooms are comfortable and clean. I would advise a room with terrace although you will for sure hear the noise of the busy avenue until the nights gets calm. I guess that is the price you have to pay for being right on THE spot!
