Thompson Playa del Carmen Main House is truly a unique and awesome resort! The staff, room, views, overall experience, food and dining atmosphere were simply amazing! The staff were professional, friendly, knowledgeable and went above and beyond daily! The location was phenomenal as every night after dinner we walked through the shopping plaza or the local streets which offered a multitude of vendors and entertainment, always buzzing until 11pm yet once in our room it was quiet and so peaceful. Martha Cardenas was instrumental in booking our transport to and from the airport, tours etc. and truly went above and beyond to listen to the activities we wanted to participate in and sites we wanted to see. Martha was very professional, kind, knowledgable, friendly and followed up always from before we even arrived to the resort. When we arrived to Cancun, everything was organised and incredible and if there were any issues or changes she followed up until all was resolved in a timely and efficient manner, thank you so much Martha :)!! The room was beautiful, very clean and the terrace offered gorgeous views. We started the day with breakfast on the rooftop at Cinco with gorgeous views, phenomenal service and a great energy all around from staff! Dinners on the rooftop at Catch were breathtaking with amazing live entertainment and wonderful staff from the hostess to everyone we spoke with; the delicious food every night was a consistent treat. There was one morning I booked to have Yoga at the Beachhouse which was a few minutes away and a nice morning walk. The Yoga instructor was awesome and so knowledgable; it was such a beautiful and tranquil experience of course with a good sweat! Finally the Covid-19 protocols in place definately gave the stay that extra star including the complimentary tests needed for our flight that we were eligible for from staying over 3 nights. The procresses were organised and the hotel always had a cleanly environment. Thank you Thompson Playa del Carmen Main House, truly one of the best stays and we plan to come back again, you made our girls trip amazing! :)

Everything you can see online about this property is as expected--beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, beautiful rooftop, great food at Catch. Overall, amazing and it doesn't let you down. What really makes this property the best is the people that operate it. I have to give a shoutout to everyone that played a part in making my stay special--Ana, Montserrat, Selene, Rafaul, but most of all Nadia. When I booked my reservation, Nadia was beyond helpful in booking excursions/tours, and arranging my schedule that would optimize my stay. In addition, they had an abundance of covid-19 precautions in place, that made the property feel like a safe haven. I have to give an additional shoutout to the crew working the rooftop that were super helpful--Manuel, and basically all the bartenders--Argenis, Hector, Javier, and Francisco. If you're looking to stay in Playa del Carmen, dont pass on this property. I look forward to visiting again, or potentially staying at the Beach House if it's open.

We loved our stay here, people were extremely nice and friendly since we arrived. The drinks at the bar are delicious, a bit over priced but they have a happy hour which makes it worth it. Bartender was so nice and made us very good personalized drinks, the pool in the rooftop is so nice, they have good music and a great atmosphere. Since calling the front desk for help with our car since the parking was blocked due to coco bongo opening we got such excellent customer service. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are very pretty and well designed, the room was COLD which is great since it’s hot as hell outside and usually the temperatures are controlled everywhere, this room was cold and comfy, we loved it and would definitely come back.

The room was nice. The staff was very nice. There was no hot water when I was there. The rooftop pool is not designed for relaxing. The music is extremely loud, not just like I can't hear someone speaking right next to me loud, like it actually hurt my ears loud. I was wincing in discomfort the whole time. But they turn it off at 6ish and then they had a really great band at the restaurant. Also, this sounds nit picky but the light switches in the room were annoying. They are grouped together but only 1 or 2 of them actually do anything, so you have to press like 10 light switches to get to an actual light.
