Got to say we had some reservations about Dos Playas after reading the reviews before we came. But there was no need to worry as the place was wonderful. We had a nice large room with a King size bed which had everything we could want. Can't fault it.
There are extensive gardens which give you alot of room to just stroll around the site. These lead to the beach which has wonderful soft white sand and some stunning views across the clear blue sea. I did take a stroll up the beach and have to say that the more upmarket hotels did not have gardens at all and looked a bit cramped.
The pool is by the bar and restaurant which is handy when you want to cool down with a nice Pina Colada or Margaritta. The staff were very nice and were very attentive. Though the reception staff did seem to be less friendly though would always try to help when asked.
There was a different theme to the food every night and the food was good. Especially liked the breakfast with choice of pancakes, waffles, etc.
There is a good bus service which runs 24 hours a day, where you can get downtown or up the Hotel Zone for about $2 a time.
I would recommend booking all excusions from the Wal-Mart downtown. Wonderful lady there who gave us a good discount and arranged our trips to Chichen itza, Xel-ha, Tulum and Coba. She even helped us to change our days when we got mixed up and booked a day when we should have been flying home. Would recommend Coba as it is the only pyramid where you are allowed to climb, but don't forget to take some walking shoes. Xel-ha is also great as you get a good day in the water and all you can eat drink included.
Got to say we had a great time. Can't fault Dos Playas. It has everything you could want, especially for the price you pay. Would definitely go back.
