I recently stayed at Be Playa during my first trip to Playa del Carmen and was pleasantly surprised. It's located in the heart of the city but far enough away from the night clubs so you're able to get some decent sleep (except for Friday nights when the hotel has music playing loudly on the roof until about 1:30am).

I wanted to stay near the "people" but not in one of the over commercial all inclusive hotels in Cancun, then this is where you stay! The location was amazing!

Be H, Online Communications Manager at Be Playa Hotel, responded to this review

Dear "Kimiiee", Thank you for your nice feedback! You hit the nail on the head about Be Playa not being an all-inclusive hotel. Small, boutique hotels offer a more human and personalized experience, and we cater more to guests wanting to have that freedom and that interaction. You get to know us by name, as we do with our guests....

It starts with the staff! They are incredible, friendly, knowledgable and just plain nice. They know everything and will arrange anything you need. The Sushi Restaurant on the main floor with the very cool bar and DJ is a great chill out spot as is the roof top pool and bar - and you can eat up there too. The...

What can I say? This place is charming. I'm enchanted with it really. Such a laid-back, relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere, with the kindest staff. It was our 3rd time to stay.
