don't bother, unless you're looking to re-create your college dorm experience. we stayed (okay, were GOING to stay) here for a vacation in january and ended up bolting from the property as quickly as we could. the staff was rude, the room wasn't ready when it was supposed to be, the pool was so cloudy it looked like a group of frat boys just finished with it, and to top it off the room was utterly disgusting. door hardware falling off and loose, rusted fixtures in the bathroom, mold and mildew everywhere, peeling paint, and the most god awful bathroom sink area you've ever seen. I didn't even want to sit on the bed as I called booking.com to beg for forgiveness for making such a terrible hotel decision.
and if you booked with booking.com: be aware the person who can process those bookings (yes, there's apparently only one), is frequently out on break and the remaining front desk staff are neither qualified nor interested in helping you.
I like to think I have good judgment in hotels, but mine was severely clouded with this choice. don't believe the management photos, and don't let the price fool you. IT'S NOT WORTH IT. you just spent too much vacation time and money to get to playa del carmen to let this hotel happen to you.
