Got this hotel on Groupon for half of the price that appeared to be still too high. It's located in the middle of everything, the beach is just one block down the street and offers "free" breakfast and "free" beach access though other hotels. The best thing about this hotel is the rooftop with a restaurant and cozy sofas. Otherwise the rooms were ok, had everything you need except balconies. They provide a "free" breakfast, you still have to pay them gratitude and honestly it was not the best breakfast at all. We tried their offer for a "free" beach club access at another hotel but it appeared that it was "free" only if you purchase drinks or food at their restaurant for more then 150pesos. One bottle of water was 45 pesos (ridiculous!). The worst thing about this hotel is that it's located right in front of Mexican Grill place. Every single night trios hombres come to the restaurant and start singing Mexican serenades until 1am. If you are not into loud serenades, pick another hotel. I had to sleep with ear plugs that still couldn't block all noise. There are plenty hotels in Playa, just come and pick whatever you like the most!
