What a beautiful little boutique hotel facing out to the beach! The location was fun, just a quick walk across the sand to the front door, the staff were consistently warm and helpful, and the food service was the best in Playa del Carmen. We spent 10 nights in the Deluxe Balcony room on the 3rd floor, waking up each morning to a magnificent view of the ocean. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The breakfasts couldn't have been any better, delicious food served by Carlos, Juan and Luciano, and a table on the beach with an unparalleled view. We were in Playa del Carmen long enough to try a variety of restaurants but no one served food as delicious and high quality as the Playa Maya. The front desk staff were very accommodating and admirably improving their English every day in order to provide excellent service. Thank you, Marie, Pablo and Oscar. You do the management credit! Our room service lady did more than keep our room clean and create incredible towel art: she even brought me some medicinal cream for some nasty insect bites on my legs. Thank you, thank you for that! I can't end this review without commenting on the excellent massage staff employed by Playa Maya. They are excellent, standards are high, and nothing beats lying on the beach and having your stresses massaged away. Truly an exotic and thoroughly satisfying experience. See you again sometime soon.
