“Really not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We had so much ice-creams for 3 weeks in the region...This is just really not the best we had...
The samples were tiny and none of the flavor was that good... I mean it was okay...
After sampling a few, we were struggling what to get. Just because we wanted some ice-cream, he got a cone of 2 scoops (and I can't recall what we had as it was nothing memorable)...
I would say - Corsi is absolutely a better option and very recommended instead!

“Awesome ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I have been to Mexico several times and I love the food there, but ice cream was never a Mexican forte… until now! Last week my wife and I were in Playa del Carmen for a few days and we stumbled across an Aldo’s. Not expecting too much we went in and got a complete shock. The ice cream was fantastic, the place was clean and stylish, and the staff was supper nice (I think my wife tried 8 different flavors until she finally made up her mind…). Aldo’s is the best way to wrap up a Mexican dinner in Playa del Carmen .

“Great ice-cream good price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

It was a really refreshing moment to see this ice cream and enjoy eating it after lunch.
I read about it at tripadvisor but didn't take it curiously... So now I had to write a good review myself! Hope you'll take it curiously...
Go there, have fun!

“Even better than in New York!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I just came back from an amazing week in Playa del Carmen. I'm used to world-class Gelato in Manhhattan, so imagine my surprise when I tasted the best Gelato ever in Playa! Highly recommended. I loved the Ferrero Roche one and they also had a sugar-free yogurt for my girlfriend who is always on a diet :)

“The best ice cream in Cancun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Almost every day of vacations included an ice cream from Aldo's! I tried almost all the flavors and I loved each and everyone of them but my favorite was Ferrero Roche! Very recommended!
