We stayed at this small hotel in 2013 and loved it. So, we decided to return with family in June 2016. A few issues. I would give it a lower rating if it were not for the fantastic service staff on the beach. We understood that the adjoining hotel had been under construction for about a year and unfortunately assumed... More

We stayed at Playa Maya with another couple and had 2 rooms for a week. We absolutely loved the Playa Maya. The small restaurant, bar was also a great treat. The beach needed a little work but the tides were high and had taken some sand away but will bring it back in near time. The rooms were clean and... More

My boyfriend and I spent four nights at this hotel. It certainly has it's charms, though several of the issues mentioned by some of the other reviewers persisted during our stay as well. The hotel has many positive aspects. It is fairly small, and uncrowded at least during our stay. The rooms are always impeccably clean, kudos to the cleaning... More

Our last review was in 2014... but I believe that an update would be helpful... especially since the owners of Playa Maya have made additional investments in updating the property that would appeal to more people interested in staying there! Full disclosure... my wife and I (as well as other family members and friends) have been staying at Playa Maya... More

This is one of the best beach hotels in Playa del Carmen, right on the beach with great access to 5th avenue. The property and rooms are very clean and most rooms offer a great view of the beach. Each room has a small refrigerator, TV, large fluffy towels and most important plenty of hot water and water pressure. The... More

Great Small Hotel but Horrible construction next door... Noisy.... Staff is excellent, breakfast great, great location to 5th ave...Clean rooms Down side is only entrance from beach not street but staff is great about carrying your luggage.. Loved our stay just wish we were warned about construction and that the hotel management would have been more accommodating about the situation...

I have stayed here before and the hotel itself has not let me down. Great location. Unfortunately beyond the control of the hotel, seaweed on the beach continues to plague the area. Some days are better than others. Also beyond the control of the hotel is construction next door starts 8 am sharp and stops after 5 pm. Since buildings... More

3rd time here at Playa Maya, The beach is small, however you get you day in the sun with the terrific location off 5th ave, great beach service and immaculate rooms. Breakfast is a delight, as they boast, with your toes in the sand. Have a nice beachfront lunch, the famous coconut shrimp and a glass of cold white wine.... More

Having stayed at Playa Maya many times before, our family knows and cannot come back home without eating their Coconut Shrimp for lunch. Next door, Hotel Alahambra is now closed and and something new is being built. There was far more tables and lounge chairs on the beach at Playa Maya than in the past and it had a much... More

Not sure how many rooms (16-18) but this hotel is right on the beach in Playa del Carmen. Although the rooms are pretty basic, they were extremely clean and had everything we needed. The view from our balcony was spectacular. The staff are all very friendly and gave great service. Breakfast was included and had many choices to choose from... More
