Hotel El Punto
Ranked #144 of 211 Hotels in Playa del Carmen
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I stayed at Hotel El Punto with my sister a few weeks ago, while visiting Playa del Carmen. I have to say that the hotel has an excellent location, as you go out the Hotel you are in la "Quinta avenida", which is where everything happens, there are plenty of restaurants. Also the beach is one block away and the Hotel has 3 beaches that you can use. Staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Finally we have to recomend the "AZOTEA" which is above the Hotel, it has a beautiful view of Playa del Carmen.I will probably go back, next time with my husband and baby.

My partner and I just returned from a 3 day stay in Playa Del Carmen, where we stayed at Hotel El Punto room #16. We absolutely loved this Hotel as it was right off the main avenue close to shopping, dinning, restaurants, and the beach. We arrived before the 3pm check in time, but the front desk allowed us to keep our luggage by them. There is a bar at the top which is cool, but it opens later in the day. We experienced just one night where it was really loud in our room which was apparently women's night at the rooftop bar. Other than that the bed was very firm which we loved (you can ask for a topper to make it softer), the AC worked great, and your stay includes free breakfast at El Pueblo which was fantastic! I would definitely stay here again on my next visit.

Room Tip: (There is no swimming pool but I couldn't un-check the above rating.) I would stay on the first...

Just returned from Playa del Carmen after staying 3 nights in Hotel El Punto. What a great place! Everything was clean and beautiful. The staff were soo friendly and very helpful. To top it off it was on 5th Avenue so we walked right out the door to go to the beach or shopping. The free breakfast at Mi Pueblo were fantastic as well! We will definitely be coming back to Hotel El Punto. Maybe the Master Suite next time (we had the junior suite)!

I recently stayed at El Punto Hotel and I had the BEST time ! we stayed in room 29, it was so BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN ! I enjoyed so much the HIGH quality of SERVICE and COMFORT !
Right on 5th avenue ! There was noise at night but Nothing out of the normal !! Especially being SO Close To Everything !
The modern decorations ! Details like the coffee maker in the room !
La Azotea restaurant is one of the best in all Playa !! Delicious ! Everything on the menu was AMAZING !! My top recommendations: tacos tinaco and the Roquefort stuffed chicken ! We went almost every night it was so good ! And the ambiance is fabulous ! Live DJ and a BEUTIFUL view of the ocean an Cozumel !
I hope to go back soon !!!! And I will Always recommend El Punto Hotel and La Azotea !!!

We needed a place to rest between flights from Canada before continuing on to Belize. Hotel el Punto was a welcome surprise -- a wonderful little boutique hotel with fabulous sheets, good bed, super clean room, great toilettries and shower, helpful staff and loved the cool little coffee maker. It's right in the hub of Playa but was quiet at night. Having free Internet with a computer in the lobby was super useful as we weren't travelling with our cellphones. And the free passes to the Mosquito Beach club were a real bonus -- how great to kick back for free on a bed on the beach under palm trees (great food there, too; try the red tuna appie). We liked it so much at el Punto that we stayed another two nights on our return and would definitely stay again. Great value for the price -- in fact we paid much more in Belize for less.

Room Tip: We got a master suite both times; found the one at the far end of the hallway to be a bit quieter, b...

Stayed at another hotel for 4 nights on beach, but my TA forgot to book 5th night, so on SuperBowl Sunday, I set off in search of a hotel and found a Junior King Suite at El Punto. The rooms were great, the staff was great and the price was a fraction of my previous resort; of course El Punto is not all-inclusive like the other resort, but it would have been impossible for me to spend the difference per day. Public beaches are a quick walk down the block and great restaurants and bars abound in the center of town where this Boutique Hotel is located. Even though located in the center of the main street in Playa del Carmen, I had no problem blocking out the street noise and falling asleep, and the AirCon worked well enough to turn the room into a refrigerator if desired. I will be back!
