Great location - close to beach and 5th avenue, tidy and nice personnel. Good beds and large room. Noise from the nearby restaurants and bars can be a problem if you need a quiet location select another place.

Best location, great service, friendly people. Will definitely come back again. Room 505 was perfect for us. We had partial ocean view and also able to people watch on street below. Small table and chairs outside our room was nice for outside drinks in the morning and evening.

Dear Ambassador Janetubiera, Infinite thanks! We appreciate you give us the opportunity to be part of your vacations, thank you! I am totally agree with you, room 505 is one of the best rooms in the Hotel, the beautiful ocean view and the calm make it a special moment. We wait for you next year! I invite you to do your reservations directly with us so you can have more benefits. Big hugs from Playa del Carmen! Claudia Esquivel Hotel Manager Illusion Boutique

The location is very good. The pubs near are very noisy to 4 am. Garbage truck and gas filling track is coming usually at 3 am. The breakkfast is very poor, few choice, without buffet, the staff is very unexperienced. We must have wait a lot for a juice only.

Dear Ambassador Tide, Thank you very much for leave us your comment. I am so sorry we give you that impression, actually all our inside rooms are perfect to have a nice and calm stay, it is true that our Balcony rooms are more likely to have noise because the amazing 5th Avenue is just few steps from us. That is why we have the best recommendation for each one. I want to apologize because we could not offer you a solution, if we notice about this we will give you a change of room immediately. Playa del Carmen has a lot of life. For the other part, we are training to all of our Hospitality Devotees (Collaborators) to give you a better service, and you can be sure next time this will be completely different. We are here to keep getting better each time you come back, we do not want to lose your loyalty and trust because this is really important for us. We have many hotels in Playa del Carmen, Xpu-Ha and Holbox, each one with a unique characteristic. I hope next time you could give us a second opportunity, we are not a noise hotel, we preach Infinite Hospitality. Regards, Claudia Esquivel Hotel Manager Illusion Boutique

We didn't rent a car. We took a direct bus from Cancun Airport to Playa. Easy, Safe & Cheap. Everything is walking distance, including the ferry to Cozumel.
