We walked past here last Feb. to see the area again since we had once stayed at the Real. The hotel was being leveled. Not sure what is intended for the location but this end of 5th av. is really up and coming. It is a whole different vibe and really enjoyable to stroll, eat and shop.

This place was the hole in ground. The room was gross, we didn't get a hot shower the whole time we were there. The buffet was nasty, there food was old and dry and there were fruit flys all over it. We would have starved if we didn't go out to eat. The beach was a 10 minute walk and... More

From the moment I arrived at the hotel I felt the special touch of this amazing place. The staff were particularly friendly and extremely accommodating. My favorite was Michelle B. With the Real Club. She genuinely cared about how my vacation was going and always was a friendly face. I loved the hammock on my outdoor patio and the food... More

Our winter getaway to Playa Del Carmen was even more extraordinary with our stay at the Gran Porto Real! Our housekeeper Celene Romero did an exemplary job keeping our room tidy and every day making our room a romantic palace with rose petals and towel sculptures. The hotel provides every possible amenity and the staff is super friendly. Most of... More

We booked out stay at Real Playa del Carmen online. We had been to Playa Del Carmen many times prior, always staying at smaller 3 star hotels, so this was a hotel that looked like our "norm". Location was ok, but I prefer to be closer to the main part of 5th. Service was ok. Rooms were below what we... More

Firstly the food and the alcohol were good, the restaurant and the waiters were nice, friendly and generous but the front desk and their service were nothing but horrible and terrible. The whole stay I had headaches and runny nose from some aging flowery smell in the bedroom then for five days we had cold showers. We asked them about... More
