“Hidden money just dissapeared!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

It is hard to find rooms in Playa del Carmen, so we felt lucky when we found this, as it has parking lot and it has a nice look...I left some money well hidden, and when we came back from the beach, I noticed that the room was specially cleaned, with even notes from the cleaning staff...I inmediately doubted and checked the money I left...Surprise, there were 40 bucks left (I hide $20 bills) and by coincidence there are two old ladies cleaning the rooms...I told the owners and they did NOTHING, just to confirm that their staff is very professional...I would never come back to this hotel, I have traveled a lot, even in places that don´t look safe, and this is the only time I have been robbed

Hotel Paza Playa is a great choice if you are not into fancy big hotels. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. It is centrally located near a variety of places to eat and a 10 minute walk to 5th. All reviews tells you the same thing, so it must be true! No pool, but who needs that if you are so close to perfect beaches!!! It has an elevator, which is an exception in most boutique hotels in Playa. I would just add a chair and mini fridge to the room for improvement. It's a great place to stay.

Not on the 5th avenue, the hotel thus avoids the excessive noise of the tourist crowd. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the amenities like wifi, free bottles of water, enormously large windows which let in the fresh evening breeze and the proximity to a large grocery store make it a great choice for the traveler.

The doors are somewhat thin though, as sound from the floor lobby easily passes through - never a good thing in the morning when families with screaming kids pass through.

Hotel Plaza Playa is a lovely place to stay. The entire hotel is very clean, modern and minimalistic style. The rooms are basic but very clean and fresh, with fantastic en-suite and awesome shower.
The breakfast is also fantastic, with a different selection of hot food everyday, plenty of fresh fruit and lots of tea and coffee.
The location is set back from the main area so it's nice and quiet, but an easy 10 minute walk to the main shops/restaurants/bars and beach.

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel; definitely recommend anyone stay here!

The room and the all hotel are very clean, the personnel is friendly and profi. The breakfast is delicious, and more than enough :) The center is enough close (5-7 minutes only by walk), so the hotel area is very quiet.

We stayed here for 6 weeks!! It was so clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. It was a great base for our activities on the Mayan Riviera. I highly recommend this place for long or short stays you will not be disappointed!

The most important thing was that the hotel was very clean. The room was large and the three of us fit there very comfortably. The staff was very friendly and helped us a lot with directions, top sites to see and food options. The breakfast every morning was delicious. All home made Mexican fare as well as cereal, fruits, yogurt. The family that runs the hotel were very warm and made us feel like we had a home not just a hotel.
It was just a 10 minute walk to the beach which honestly felt like nothing at all because it was a really nice walk.
