What an enjoyable stay! The staff was friendly, the room beautiful. What a treat to enjoy the pool deck on the 4th floor, an ocean view, close access to the beach & shopping. Nice massage huts on the top floor. Even an elevator!

We enjoyed our week-long stay at the Illusion Boutique. We were treated very nicely, and the staff was extremely accommodating. The location was perfect. Entry to Playa del Carmen's "famous" 5th Avenue was right at the corner, and we were able to walk to several wonderful restaurants. They have a private beach associated with the hotel. You had to walk... More

This was my second time staying here and both times I found the hotel to be very clean and a very good value compared to other hotels in the area. The hotel is in a great location and there is just a very good overall vibe here. My wife and I spent a week here and we didn't want to... More

This was our second stay at illusions. We love location, close to the beach and 5th Ave. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was pretty and clean. We hope to stay there again this year.

Last November, I had the pleasure of staying at the Illusion hotel in PDC. The hotel was perfectly located one half block from the beach and one half block from Fifth Avenue, the main pedestrian thoroughfare that bisects PDC. I found the hotel to be charming, clean and professionally serviced by a friendly and welcoming staff. Since returning, I have... More

In early October 2008 we booked a "Deluxe Room with Balcony" at the Illusion Hotel for our Xmas vacation. Please note, that was almost 3 months in advance of the actual vacation. Since we booked the room through Orbitz, we paid 7 nights in full, on our credit card, the same day we made the reservation. Please note, room paid... More

I stayed at the Illusion for all 10 days of my trip to Playa with my boyfriend based on tripadvisor reviews and glad I did. I strolled past several of the other places I had considered and they definitely lacked the location, comfort, service and rooftop pool offered at Illusion. I was greeted by Cesar upon arrival , check in... More

We stayed for 7 nights at the Illusion this holiday. I would say that under ideal circumstances I would give the hotel 4 stars but our experience makes it more of a 3. We booked and prepaid for a rooftop ocean view suite six months in advance only to find out they were overbooked and were placed in a much... More

We are (sadly) home after a wonderful 5 days staying at the Illusion in PDC. For the price (we paid under $200 when we reserved in August) this small boutique hotel can't be beat. As others have said, the front desk staff are amazingly helpful and friendly (Gracias Isidro, Nora y Cesar!) The room was spacious and clean. We liked... More
