This is a small hotel near the beach . We get up early , so having a coffee in our room is always better . Nice to sit on the balcony for morning coffee . The kitchenette is well equipped , but we really did not use it . Just the refrigerator . The bed was good and firm . The AC worked well and was quiet . Good water pressure in the bathroom . Public beaches are usually small and unkempt . The multinational hotels close as much of the coast as they can . However the 88 beach is clean with restrooms and shower water . You can also walk past the big hotel up to playa Esmeralda . It is also a good public beach . There are some vendors and facilities . This area is not part of the downtown nightclub scene . A taxi to downtown should be 30 to 50 pesos . Always ask before riding . Most of the taxis are good but some will overcharge . There are small stores and restaurants close by on 10th. But the restaurant at the hotel is very good . We had breakfast there every day after a morning swim and some evenings .

Dear Robert Thank you for your review. Our team works every day to make our guests feel welcome and well taken care of. Our studios feature the kitchenette and are usually for 1-2 guests, standard rooms do not have a kitchenette but can be equipped with 2 extra large beds (king size) so a total of up to 4 adults can stay comfortable and with a lot of room. As a additional feature to the beach "Playa 88" you described I can mention that there is a turist information module close to the service area (bathrooms and showers), people can find helpful tips with the local experts there. It was great having you as our guests and we hope to see you back here at Sol Playa.

When we arrived the owner and his staff were there to greet us and they were very quick to take our luggage to our room. The room was huge and spotless there was a good size flat screen a king size bed and to make things over the top cool was the private balcony over looking the ocean. When booking the availability to switch up your bed sizes are quickly dealt with. The whole hotel and the attached restaurant are always clean, friendly well organized, and the topper: SAFE. The owner is great, friendly, helpful and a blast to talk to. He seems to deal with any thing coming his way with manners and respect. Our two week stay was great and we would for sure go back. The beach is a 2 minutes stroll away and the taxi service is great. For those that like to walk it is easy to get right in to the hub of Fifth Ave that is great. If you do not like the all inclusive vibe and prefer your own thing I would say give this hotel a long look at. They have this great roof top terrace, that has hammocks a thatched roof gazebo and a bbq. The view is perfect for as long as you wish to stare. For me it was a least a few drinks from the restaurant on the ground floor. I say just go.

Room looked even nicer than the pictures online. Great balcony overlooking the water in the distance. Cute open air restaurant downstairs. Felt very safe and friendly staff/management was very safety conscious, not even allowing one of my unannounced visitors to walk up to my door. Steps from the beach. Easy check in/check out. Great communication with owner prior to trip. Great deal.
