My buddy booked here only to arrive to closed doors. This hotel is closed but is still accepting reservations and is showing open on several sites as well. I checked this morning and they still have open and active on many of the rental platforms. This is super shady and people need to be made aware ! Buyers beware !!!!!

We had reservations here and would contact with questions, but no one responded. Should have been warning sign right off the bat but with Mexico you just never know if they really only check facebook PM’s. We arrived to a completely closed hotel. This hotel Is still taking online reservations and can be booked online even thru expedia, orbitz etc. Do not book a stay here.

The Experience Hotel, “Illusions” in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico has been our “Go To Place “ for many years!! It is centrally located, and very close to 5th. Avenue for good shopping and many great restaurants! It is equally close to the ocean , and beach! The Illusions also offers Passes to two different beach clubs which Are well maintained, and offer food and drink. Tania, Arely, Ricky, and Manuel all speak English and are always happy to assist you and answer any questions you might have. The Illusions has an elevator and a nice small pool, and bar, with a rooftop view of the ocean and comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas! Finally, there is a Restaurant on the main floor that offers wonderful baked goods, as well as a full menu! As you can see, the many amenities of the Illusions Hotel as well as the reasonable prices of the well equipped rooms is a great choice! Tip: We always enjoy staying on the pool Level rooms, fourth floor, or the rooms on the fifth floor overlooking the pool!

This was our second stay at Illusion Boutique Hotel and again, we had a great time. Beautiful and very clean hotel & room (big thanks to Jessy from the housekeeping) clean pool with a perfect view to the ocean. Just a few steps to the beach and to the stores at 5th Avenida. A huge thanks to the whole stuff and specially to Claudia, the Ambassadors relation manager. When ever we had a question or asked for Tipps, she helped us out. We promise, we will be back.
