“Low key and close to the beach ...”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

What else do you need except a reasonable room rate, which it has. We have kept this place secret for years but it appears the secret is out and has been out for sometime. You now definitely need to book this place in advance to be assured of getting a room. It is a great place to stay with comfy beds, friendly staff, and a super location. We were very sad to see the small kitchen operation closed in 2013 as it provided some great breakfasts and lunches for us. In speaking with the staff, the kitchen closed due to numerous complaints from travelers whom didn't like the staff from Yebo and Playa Palms eating lunch there - shame on you rude obnoxious travelers. In spite of this, Club Yebo is still our favorite place to stay in PDC.

This was my wife and I's 3rd time staying at Club Yebo and it is with great trepidation that I'm writing a favorable review only for the fact that we'd like to keep Club Yebo out little secret. This year we brought our 3 daughters, all young adults, and rented 2 rooms, the hospitality and service has been excellent every time we've stayed. Club Yebo has recently updated the rooms giving each room a semi private patio as well as a common area around the pool. We have talked to quite a few people over the years that have stayed and everyone is in agreement, the place is fantastic and the cost is very reasonable, and a great location. Friends of our stayed down the block and had issues with the diso noise, it has never been an issue at Club Yebo. We highly recommend Club Yebo!

Club Yebo is a hidden gem among all the hustle and bustle of Playa Del Carmen. It is located a short block from 5th Avenue and a block from the beach. You can't beat this location, especially because it feels private and is relatively quiet despite its location so close to the action.

When traveling to a foreign country, there are a few primary concerns and one of those is safety. You will feel safe and secure in this location, especially with the security guard who is on the premise all night long. All rooms have a safe, and that gave us peace of mind when we were out exploring the area. We stored our valuables in it and never had an issue with any of our stuff, in OR out of the safe. Another concern is cleanliness, which is no concern here. The rooms are kept very clean.

The value was fantastic, rooms range from $45-$80 (excluding the suites). They are VERY basic, but are clean and comfortable. They provide drinking water in your rooms, very much appreciated. Our room also had a small fridge, microwave and kitchenette area which was nice for bringing back leftovers and enjoying them later.

The people working the desk spoke very good English, definitely a bonus when your Spanish is minimal. The pool was a great amenity as well, we used it daily. The WIFI worked perfectly for us, which was also a bonus.

I would highly recommend to anyone who can appreciate the value, safety and cleanliness of a place despite the simplicity of it. I will stay there again if I visit Playa in the future.

My husband and I recently stayed at Club Yebo, March 19-22, with four other couples. We had reserved our rooms during one of their promotional sales and was able to get a fantastic price.
When our group goes anywhere we do a TON of research. Club Yebo met all of our criteria. It was close to the beach, fifth avenue, quite, private, and mostly importantly safe.
When researching places that were in our price range nothing came close to what this place offered. Their 24/7 security and key lock safes were very reassuring, considering none of us had been to Mexico before and didn't know what to expect. The rooms had air-conditioning and were very clean. The pool was perfect after a evening on the strip. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend getting a standard or higher room, we paid for the lowest value room, and even though it was great for the price, I wish I would have paid the extra for a larger room and a better view.
Overall I would recommend staying there to anyone and given the opportunity would go back!

Club Yebo was a very relaxing experience. I spent 4 wonderful days in playa del Carmen this past weekend (March19-23). The service was great starting from the booking of the hotel to the departure and pick up and drive back to Cancun. Paola, the director of operations does a great job at coordinating your stay and understands great customer service. Carmen helped us with the booking and pre arrangements for the trip. All the staff is friendly and accommodating to the guests. The location of playa yebo is great, just a block away from the beach. Their other property, playa palms is their other sister property located on the beach. Probably will go here next time. Want to complement the yebo team, from Paola to the concierge. It was a relaxing trip.
Thank you and see you next time!

Stayed in room 56 (the treetop studio). Should have been called the treetop suite. Huge outdoor patio, outdoor shower, sun chairs, hammock etc. the place was very clean and very private. Kitchen with fridge, sink, blender, toaster, and coffee maker along with plates, glasses and cutlery. Club Yebo is very affordable, and it's amazing what you get for your money!
They're right in the heart of town. We were able to walk to nearly all of the restaurants and shops we wished to visit.
The real thing they offer is hospitality. We came home to towel animals many days, the staff were all friendly and welcoming, and even brought balloons and a cake when they found out it was my friend's birthday.
I would stay there a million times...I probably will!

We stayed at Club Yebo this February for our fifth time. A minor booking glitch caused us to be in a different room than we had reserved(which Carmen handled wonderfully) The rest of the stay went without a hitch. The staff is so accommodating and helpful. We were in a studio which housekeeping kept very clean. I feel the location is great with the beach only 1 block away. The hotel has an arrangement with a small beach club nearby that is very handy. I can't wait to go back next year.
