“Cheap and charming Mexican hotel”
Reviewed April 1, 2010

That being said, it is a mexican hotel- the water pressure wasn't great and the beds were hard, but that wasn't a problem for us. It was clean and charming and we would go back. We didn't have reservations and showed up Easter Week and got a great deal. It is a few blocks from town, but the pool and courtyard are wonderfully tropical, peaceful and relaxing. Its near El Fogon, an awesome restaurant, which didn't hurt. very affordable option.

Reviewed February 11, 2010

We stumbled across this little oasis and were surprised by it's value and cleanliness. We liked that it was just off the beaten path. The gate was locked at night and we never felt unsafe. the room was clean, the staff was polite and helpful. It was tucked away from the ruckus of the main drag down by the beach and close to clean and friendly restaurants. We would stay there again if we ever return to Playa Del Carmen. As mentioned, it takes a few minutes for the hot water, but once it arrives there is not rush to finish as there was plenty. The young man who cleaned the rooms was polite and artistic with the towels. The court yard was beautiful and peaceful. We loved it.
