The hotel is located on a quiet street about 4 blocks from the action of 5th avenue, and within walking distance to Wal-Mart and other grocery stores. The rooms are modern, comfortable, immaculately cleaned each day, and are very well air conditioned. The continental breakfast available each morning will fill you up and get your day started on the right foot.
The only issue during our stay was occasional noise coming from the hallway. Due to the buildings construction (and odd design feature of a window opening in the shower to the hallway) noise carries very easily and is amplified. This was annoying a few times when it woke me up, but not enough to ruin my impression of the place.
I would certainly consider staying here again.

Room Tip: I didn't see any advantages of staying in a specific part of the building; they all seemed just...

We had an amazing stay at Hotel Plaza Playa. We stayed for five days and enjoyed it from the moment we stepped in. Located only ten minutes from the beautiful beach, five minutes from the 5 Av and right across the street from a big supermarket we really had everything within our reach. Rooms are nice, clean and with A/C and fridge which really is a plus. The hotel provided free bottles or water every day and the included breakfast was simple but nice-just what we needed to get started! Staff were always smiling, sending out good vibes and very helpful. On the 30 Av. Just around the corner we found the best and cheapest local restaurants; taco places, Mexican antojitos, fish and even the best and Thai place in town.

We give Plaza Playa our best recommendations and will definitely stay here again another time!

Hasta la proxima vez!

Room Tip: Ask for the balcony rooms, they are brighter and a bit nicer

The Plaza Playa hotel is located an easy walk from the beach and Avenida 5, about ten minutes. Quiet neighborhood with nice restaurants and stores (including organic market DAC and supermarket Mega) nearby. Breakfast was included and served in the coffee shop next door to the hotel. Parking was easy, right outside the hotel, and felt safe. The room we were first given unfortunately smelled strongly of smoke (even though all the rooms are non-smoking) but we were offered another room without any hassle. The room was clean, had a fridge and a small balcony.

We have just returned back from our great vacation.
The hotel has an excellent location,close to several good local restaurants,which is absuletely worth to try it!It is 10 minutes from the beach,5 minutes from the 5th avenue.
The hotel has a minimal disign with very nice pictures on the wall.
It is super clean,which we really appreciated.Room is very comfortable,we have really enjoyed to be there!Excellent for a few days stay.The only thing which might be disturbing that you might here the noise from the neighboors and corridors.(bathroom has a window to the common corridor area)
Breakfast was also lovely,house made mexican food,which was very tasty.
All in all it has a great value for price!

The hotel is only about 6 years old now and I have been coming there for the last 4. The owners are welcoming and accommodating and Fabiola and other at the front desk will assist you with everything. Also, the hotel and grounds are kept spotless by the staff who are diligent daily in their work. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach but that helps with being away from the bustle of the main pedestrian walkway (5th Ave.) You are close to the local supermarket (Mega is one block away) and there are various restaurants in the area along 30th Ave.
You cannot rate this place with the 3-4-5 star system because this is usually done in conjunction with what is on the property for activities, how many restaurants are there and other amenities offered. If you do not care for the all inclusive holiday, and prefer a hotel with the best of service at a reasonable price then you have found it. I am going back Tuesday 24Jan2014.

You never know what you're going to get when you book a room at an unknown hotel. This hotel was a bit of a walk from the collectivo stop on Calle 20, but only a couple of streets from the less central bus station (also Calle 20), and a five-minute walk to the northern end of Calle 5. We had rm 25, which is a corner room and has three balconies, a very comfy king-sized bed, a microwave, a lounging area, and a small dining table with chairs. Air conditioning, cable, safe in room. The room was very well priced and included the BEST breakfast we ate in a hotel in the Yucatan: a varied and delicious buffet. The staff spoke English and were very helpful: they let us leave our bags at the hotel for the day, while we explored the city (our flight out was late that night). Probably one of the best deals we had during our entire three-week stay in Yucatan. There were lots of good small restaurants near the hotel, too, and a Pelican mega store.

Room Tip: Room 25--what can I say? Have a look at the pix.

A 5 min walk to 5th Ave and a 10 min walk to the beach, spacious, clean room and bathroom. Delightful, helpful staff, great coffee shop open for breakfast right next door ( 50 pesos- my room rate did not include breakfast) and superb local restaurants all with 3 min of the hotel. If and when I return to Play del Carmen I will stay here not in the fully inclusive large hotels. Many many thanks -
