I was with my family in this hotel, we ordered 2 rooms. The hotel have a fair price, rooms are clean, big, new, tv with a lot of channels also english spoken. BUT, a very big BUT: In front of the hotel there is a wholehouse/distributer for fruits. Every night (!) during the all night, trucks are activating their refriegerators,... More

Nice hotel inside...outside looks a little poor...location is not bad, walking distance to 5th Avenue but area is oposit to some wholesale market with a lot of trucks and quite noisy. But rooms are nice, also staff very polite and speak good English and has privat locked parking. Worth for money. I would recommend it.

This Hotel was very clean with a nice comfortable bed and pillows. The room has a TV, chair, safe and mini-fridge.The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is located four blocks from 5th Avenue and about 6 blocks from the beach area. The Mega grocery store is located almost across the street and there are many good restaurants near... More

I'd spent some weeks here 4 years ago, this year I really wanted to stay here again. Was a really good choice again :) The location is really good, only 5 minutes by walk from the center. Although, there is a construction near to the hotel, it is a little bit noisy during the day. But, in that hot weather,... More

We come to Playa del Carmen every year on vacation, but this year was a little bit different. We traveled with our 7 month old daughter for the first time. After staying 10 days at an All-Inclusive Resort right in town, we decided to extend our vacation and stay an extra 10 days, for which we found this gem of... More

Nice location, about five minutes from the 5th avenue. Big room and confortable bed. Just a little bit rumours from the row and at the air conditioner. Good breakfast. Gently people at the front desk.

Playa del Carmen has become quite expensive over the last few years and its kind of hard to find good hotels without patying too much. This one is a bargain though. Its 6-7 mins walk from Avenida 5 and situated in a quiet residential area. Staff is nice and serviceminded. Rooms are well kept and very clean, but perhaps not... More

I chose this hotel based on the reviews here but was quite surprised. The room itself was a bit cold, with no view (the windows were tainted). There was a big TV that didn't work and a hard bed with stained sheets and pillows. Breakfast was not my thing either, very basic. But the noise in my room was jaw-dropping.... More

We stayed here 4 nights and thought that it was a great value. There's no pool or beach access, but it's about 5 minutes from 5th Ave and 10 minutes to the beach by walk. It's one block away from El Fogon and Nativo, both great, local restaurants. It's also 3 minutes walk to Mega supermarket which is very convenient.... More
