I have never been more excited (ecstatic!) about a hotel than this adorably chic Casa Ticul. Why you may ask?? I can’t believe the quality of such a hotel/room could be offered for only $85 a night (gasp!) In my world, nothing costs $85. Change your world, you say. Off with their heads! I retort.
Room: we had the joy of staying in the only Jr. suite. It was a lovely room with a king sized four poster bed and a small sitting area. Purple accents ever where- the pillow! The chaise lounger! The chairs! It was divine. The bed was uber comfy and as an added bonus, there was a nice balcony overlooking the pool area and Fifth Ave.
There were a few negatives with the room, nothing that would derail another stay but full disclosure ahead- first, there was very little space to hang your clothing and no drawers for anything else. Fine for us as we were only there 3 days but for a longer stay, you would want to unpack. Secondly, the pillows were horrible. Management if you are reading, change the pillows!! Also, there is a small mini fridge and it’s filled with well, stuff. It would be better if we had the option of having it empty so we could stock up on water etc.
Food: breakfast was included and served daily on the roof of the hotel. The selection leaves a lot to be desired but hey, it’s FREE so if it’s not good enough for you, there are so many places within walking distance. Origenes has a wonderful breakfast, everything made to order and healthy. Its a few blocks from the hotel and well, very cheap.
Location- this is my favorite part of Playa to stay in. There is a GREAT juice bar across the street and tons of wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Canibal Royal is the best beach club (in my very humble opinion) and it’s about a 5 minute walk. The French Bakery is also pretty fabulous and authentic.
Staff- service goes a long way with me and this hotel delivered. Everyone here is SO NICE. The women at breakfast preparing and serving the foods were fantastic as was Diego at the front desk. I would definitely stay here again. You can too but just not in my purple room.
