“Going Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

What a wonderful place Playa del Carmen is. My buddy and I bought airfare only and hopped around a bit we stayed here our last two nights. Noise not really an issue if you close the window plus it is low season --more families so 5th ave dies out around 11. Clean rooms has what you need for 60 bucks a night (780 pesos). Staff was wonderful--and one block from the beach. No pool no room service but if you are like us you will be out and about-- it is a place to sleep, shower and rest. You can walk anywhere so you won't be in the room much anyway. Great job Delfin and thank you.

Room Tip: There are stairs and no elevator. Not many places do have elevators. Corner room right on 5th no pr...

Stayed in the penthouse suite May 2013 for 5 nights. It was 90 degrees Fahrenheit and humid. After getting way too much sun the room was an oasis. The AC and ceiling fan cooled the room quickly and we slept soundly. The staff was very helpful and friendly. For the price we were very happy and would stay here again.

Nice room but up 4 floors if you want the patio. King bed was good. We did hear a bunch of noise one of the three nights but hey it's right on 5th Ave so you have to expect that. Parking is a problem in Playa del Carmen and really unneeded. You can catch good transportation pretty much any place you want to go for cheap. I got a better deal on the rental car by renting it by the week then left it parked most of the time we were in Playa del Carmen. I parked it in a pay lot the first night for around $10.00 then used the lot across the street from Wal-Mart the next two nights for free. I think it was the Police Station. I would go back. Nice people running the place.

Room Tip: I like being outside. If you are like me ask for a patio room.

I loved my stay at this hotel! It's less than a block away from the insanely gorgeous beach, with wonderful rooms and air conditioning, comfortable beds, great bathroom, the whole deal. The staff were really friendly, and the folks who cleaned the rooms were so sweet and did fabulous jobs, and they arranged your towels into animal shapes like elephants, which was a really cute touch. It was in a really great location, and the staff were helpful in suggesting places to eat or to go visit. I will always fondly remember Playa Del Carmen and the adorable Hotel Delfin I stayed at!

I stayed at the Hotel Delfin a number of times in a regular two bed room, and also in the penthouse. Everything about my experience there has been wonderful, from the service and rooms, to the amazing location. Any and everything you want to do while staying in playa is within walking distance, as well as the bus station and ferry port if you want to explore out of town. A minutes walk to the ocean, which you have a wonderful view of if you can get a penthouse room. Located on 5th avenue, right in the heart of playa del carmen on a bustling but mellow pedestrian cobbled street. The rooms are comfortable and elegant, the staff very friendly and accommodating. I always felt safe in the area, even when coming home late at night because there was always some one at the front desk no matter what the hour. Can't wait to go back!!
