Truthfully, my husband and I felt like we had should have paid more.... free breakfast is a buffet, very nice rooms, grounds, pool and professional helpful staff. We felt very much at home browsing about this hotel and the city areas too. As I said, they don't have a beach but the pool area is very nice with palm trees.... More

We stayed six days at this hotel with a 17 month old toddler. As they are at pains to tell you, this is a typical business class holiday inn express. So, no lunch or dinner, and no real entertainment. No problem, that's what we were looking for. The room was large and very clean. Typical of the climate, the floors... More

We arrived in Playa a day earlier than our expected arrival at the Grand Mayan and needed a place to stay for one night, nothing really expensive. I was pleasantly surprised at the nice accomodations offered at the Holiday Inn Express - closer to Playacar than Playa del Carmen. The rate was around $56 or $57 US - with tax... More

We have used this Hotel for two years since 2008 and are now happily looking forward to a third visit in 2010! Basically this hotel ticks all the boxes if you are looking for cheap,clean rooms and friendly staff. OK its located on the edge of town, but the hot spots and restuarants are only 5 minutes away by taxi... More

I found this hotel to be consistent with other Holiday Inns I have stayed at over the years. The rooms were clean and well appointed, if a little spartan.There is an outdoor pool, and they have a good breakfast offering. The hotel itself, is about an 8 minute walk from the main tourist area (5th Avenue.) They offer a free... More

The hotel was clean and had freindly staff. Not well suited for someone without a car. About a 2 to 3 minute dirve to the main area of Playa and Walmart. Could walk to McDonalds. The breakfast was adequate but not great. The hotel does have a tour person on-site and they are friendly and helpful with anything.

Hotel was almost too clean. Pervasive smell of cleaner. Almost overpowering when you first open the door to the room and the fan has not been running. No balconies so hard to air out the room. If you have respiratory issues or are sensitive to these things, stay somewhere else. Otherwise it was great. Standard modern hotel room. When in... More

We used this hotel prior to arriving at our "destination" spa type hotel that ended up not being nearly as nice.
