“Lovely little hotel right near beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We found Hotel Delfin on a last minute search having stayed at an awful and expensive 3* hotel in Cancun. What a difference! A warm welcome upon arrival. A cute room with AC, a fan, a fridge and a terrace with sun beds on the top floor. The owners are very accommodating too.

The hotel is on the main tourist street but our room was set back and had double glazing so we couldn't hear the hustle and bustle outside. The public beach is less than 5 mins walk with lovely white sand and turquoise sea.

Points to note: there isn't a restaurant or a lift but the staff will help with bags. The hotel is so very close to all the restaurants and bars that the lack of one in the wasn't a problem. The hotel is also a 4 block walk from the ADO bus station so getting around and exploring is easy.

Room Tip: A room with a terrace on the top floor.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We tried to get a private room in one of the nice hostels in playa but they where booked out and would have cost us $50 per night. Dragging our bag around town in and out of hotels asking for a good rate this one jumped out at us for $45 per night right smack bang in the middle of everything on 5th avenue. The room we stayed in had been re-decorated - looked brand new, beautiful clean bathroom etc. we had room number 4 which overlooked 5th av on the first level. Great value for your money in Playa. Would stay here again.

What a wonderful place Playa del Carmen is. My buddy and I bought airfare only and hopped around a bit we stayed here our last two nights. Noise not really an issue if you close the window plus it is low season --more families so 5th ave dies out around 11. Clean rooms has what you need for 60 bucks a night (780 pesos). Staff was wonderful--and one block from the beach. No pool no room service but if you are like us you will be out and about-- it is a place to sleep, shower and rest. You can walk anywhere so you won't be in the room much anyway. Great job Delfin and thank you.

Room Tip: There are stairs and no elevator. Not many places do have elevators. Corner room right on 5th no pr...

Stayed in the penthouse suite May 2013 for 5 nights. It was 90 degrees Fahrenheit and humid. After getting way too much sun the room was an oasis. The AC and ceiling fan cooled the room quickly and we slept soundly. The staff was very helpful and friendly. For the price we were very happy and would stay here again.

Nice room but up 4 floors if you want the patio. King bed was good. We did hear a bunch of noise one of the three nights but hey it's right on 5th Ave so you have to expect that. Parking is a problem in Playa del Carmen and really unneeded. You can catch good transportation pretty much any place you want to go for cheap. I got a better deal on the rental car by renting it by the week then left it parked most of the time we were in Playa del Carmen. I parked it in a pay lot the first night for around $10.00 then used the lot across the street from Wal-Mart the next two nights for free. I think it was the Police Station. I would go back. Nice people running the place.

Room Tip: I like being outside. If you are like me ask for a patio room.
