Travelers' Choice
For a boutique hotel in central Playa del Carmen, The Palm at Playa goes beyond the typical hospitality by offering the true lifestyle-beach character. With an accurate service, contemporary-beach design and a superb location by the "5ta Avenida", the town's most vibrant area, The Palm at Playa puts the best in town to handy distance. There are 69 resort-style accommodations which include lofts and apartment-like suites, very chic, generous in space and details. Our Sabor a Mar offers Mexican contemporary cuisine at local prices. But our star is the rooftop with the Bar and swimming pool. It's a perfect spot for celebrating the occasion in a stylish atmosphere, a place where dramatic ocean views and rounds of mojitos and margaritas flow constantly. The swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and snack bar are the perfect setting to relax under the warm and balmy Caribbean sun. But at night the whole terrace transforms itself into a jazzy-vibrant stage. A chic and trendy place meaning the perfect setting for young souls seeking the groove, while gazing at the horizon and the sizzling lights of Cozumel Island. Adult Only. Children +14 are allowed.

The hotel is really amazing with big, clean rooms, an awesome rooftop with bar ( drinks and food ) and pool and all located right in the center of playa del carmen. The Service tops it all, everyone is super nice and friendly, and Raffa the night guard at the front desk went beyond every expectations to meet our wishes ( he even called a friend of him to find out where we can find good vegan food ). You will not be disappointed staying here !

A huge thank you to Sandra for making our stay so much better! We were in contact prior to our departure from the US. There were 6 of us in the group and Sandra helped with booking a private van to pick us up from the airport, a private van to take us to Tulum for a day (17 hrs) and back to the hotel. She also made transportation back to the airport so easy. Sandra is such a great asset to the company! She is the most friendly and accommodating guest service representative I’ve had the pleasure of working with. As far as the room and the stay, our room was perfect, we didn’t hear any noise or music coming the the bars across from the hotel. Mind you, we inside in an area with no balcony which was perfectly fine — bars at Playa close at midnight anyways. The breakfast that is included when you book the bed and breakfast option is not the greatest but it’s fine for people that prefer a light breakfast. We had yogurt and granola with fruit, a small biscuit and coffee. Anything more would be an extra charge. The location itself and great because it’s right in the heart of all the restaurants and bars tourists would go to. There are also 2 malls within walking distance. Not only that is it close enough to the pier that you’d take to Cozumel. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel and get in touch with Sandra if you decide to book! Thank you!

This place is beyond past its prime, and nothing could have been worse, except the nice little breakfast. I've stayed at lower "star" hotels and had infinitely better experiences than here. First off, the room was horrific: dirty, outdated, dark, and most of all LOUD. Loud, like the music from the clubs on the roof and across the street are actually in your room. Here's just a small assortment of what you could expect that we had to endure until we left the hotel to move to an amazing hotel - see the review for that amazing place here too!: - Dirty and derelict room, stains on everything - Not the room we booked, but no one cared or would help - Holes in the door on both sides - NOT SAFE!!! (see photos) - No manager on site - except perhaps in the middle of the night - Worst service every, no one could help, and no manager, let alone accountability for not giving us the room we booked - Insanely loud hotel. If you're deaf or only like to party and pass out, only then is it the place for you - At least a quarter of the rooms are "under construction" - creepy This place may have been awesome in its prime, but nothing really works about it any more, aside from that simple included breakfast, like I said. Not only did we not feel like anything worked well about this hotel, we literally did NOT FEEL SAFE because of the holes in the door, and no one was concerned. Worst ever. Save your trip, find another place and you'll be so much more relieved and enjoy a fantastic experience somewhere else, but definitely not here!

For the first time staying at Playa, we decided the Palm would be the most convenient because it’s in the middle of everything ! Sure enough, we had a lovely time there, the bar closes pretty early (9:30 due to restrictions) and there are areas on the roof that can be reserved at times. Shoutout to Sandra for constantly checking up on us, and for smoothly booking tours/transportation/ EVERYTHING ! She has gone above and beyond , and to get the best out of everything use Whatsapp to communicate. Would we stay here again? Definitely .
