Upon the arrival we were stunned: from inside it didn't look like an average hotel at all! Seriously, the feeling as if you are in the fairytale: very original. It's small, yet cozy. There's an elevator.The rooms are clean and the air conditioning works well (and that't important!). The breakfast is served in the cafe just opposite the hotel -... More

Close enough to Italian zone and Mexican zone, inexpensive, clean. Leave beach towels at home, walking distance to best beach in Playa del Carmen! One major downside - they will absolutely not allow anyone, even accompanied with staff, to knock at room. Our phone was not working - we were told there was a problem at check-in. Revisited Play after... More

The location is very good, the staff is friendly but the rooms are smaller than the pictures shown in the net, plus in the photos the rooms look nicer than what they really are. The bathroom is also very small.

Charming hotel. Great location. Clean, spacious, comfortable room. Lovely staff. I had read a bit about this hotel before booking, and had made sure to select a room NOT on 5th street. The hotel upgraded me to a master suite...which faced 5th. I did not want to be rude and turn it down. The first night ( Wednesday) was quite... More

We arrived at the hotel a little flustered because of the parking situation however, upon arriving at the front desk the concierge Claudia greeted us with a Colgate smile and eased our frustrations. The check in process was quick and easy, she escorted us to our room and gave us the run down of the wi-fi-, room amenities etc. We... More

The front desk staff is very nice. They can help you with advice and tips in playa del Carmen. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to playa mamitas and coco bongo, and they often offer you coupons for these.You can find nice restaurants near. I booked the hotel in hotels.com for a great deal. The hotel...

Having booked a room upfront on booking.com, we were told when we arrived that it was not available and we had been upgraded with a free bottle of red wine thrown in. Well - what an interesting 'upgrade' it was. Whilst we'd booked a modern, beautiful decorated room with mod-cons as per photos on booking.com, we received a crumbling ancient... More
