The layout, a small hotel in Playa del Carmen with 30 rooms in hotel part plus 16 bungalows. North of Playa next to the Princess resort. Rooms 501-506 are ocean front as well as bungalows 1 and 9. Nice swimming pool, bar, restaurant and beautiful section of beach. Most (all?) bookings include breakfast and dinner.
We spent 4 days in the hotel starting November 6th. Hotels rooms reminded me of a Howard Johnson, main sleeping area with sink and separate shower and commode. Depending on what you are expecting it is a quant room. We started going to Cancun and surrounding area since the mid 80’s, my wife and I both thought the room reminded us of the hotels in Cancun before the resorts became commonplace.
The hotel is great. There were 25 or so guests at the resort while we stayed there. The only time I saw more than 4-6 other people was at dinner. This is one of the most restful places you will ever go to. If you are going to party or look for a night life this is probably not the right place. If you are looking for a low key place to have a great time. Lunch prices and drinks appeared pretty reasonable. Make sure and take anything you need with you such as sun screen as there is no on-site store to purchase misc. items. Oxxo (market like a 7/11) is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.
This hotel is a real find. Not many of them left. If you are looking for a place to relax and have a great time you will not be disappointed. Our host was David. He does a great job and will make you feel right at home.
Walk up the beach to the Princess report and they have vendors on the beach, several with handmade items vs. the same stuff you see everywhere else.
While the hotel is not for everyone, it is a great find and we will be back again.
