Description: Colibri Beach has been remodeled and the rooms are beautifully decorated in the original rustic Mexican style! You will love the warm and welcoming environment and immediately feel at home! The Colibri Beach is located right in the heart of Playa del Carmen on the beautiful beaches of the Riviera Maya with a total of 25 rooms and 5 small cabanas. Most rooms face the tropical garden and some of them have gorgeous ocean views. When you step out of your room, you are directly on the beach and can feel the pure, white sand under your feet. Guests of Colibri Beach are always welcome to the beach club Lido with it's fun and hip Palapa swing bar as found in the good old, original Playa times. The Lido offers excellent food and delicious drinks right on the beach, all at affordable prices. The friendly staff is attentive, professional and always ready to take good care of you and your needs! Being in the heart of downtown Playa del Carmen, Colibri Beach provides easy access to all the restaurants, shops and bars on 5th Avenue directly around the corner and even the nightlife is steps away on 12th Avenue. Because of this, a car is not necessary or recommended. There are many destinations to explore and excursions offered along the Riviera Maya which we would be happy to recommend. In addition, numerous water sport activities such as fishing, snorkeling, wave-running, parasailing and more are available right outside your door, along the beach. Enjoy a wonderful vacation at the Colibri Beach... We look forward to welcoming you to our hotel and all that Playa del Carmen has to offer for a fun and relaxing vacation!

Many locals frequent here. The staff enjoy working here and make you feel welcome, Many of them speak English and are helpful to the tourists. Reasonable beach prices and a varied, multinational menu.

“Great Mojitos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Great Mojitos, fabulous service. We enjoyed having the place to ourselves on a recent trip to Lido. Sitting at the swing bars talking to the bar tender, he was a wealth of knowledge about the local history of Playa del Carmen. Great place

“Best Cocktail I've Ever Had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

An amazing beach atmosphere. Each person has a minimum consumption to get a beach bed, but it's easily reachable.

Loved the service! They were all so friendly - the boyfriend lost his phone on the hammock and they helped us look for it after hours.

And if you go to Lido, be sure to order the Coctel Lido - their house cocktail, it's out of this world!

“Great Beach atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

We really enjoyed the atmosphere at the each club. The chicken club sandwich is great! But kind of pricey. The music was great too. Just be prepared to spend some money. To use the beds there you need to spend 100 pesos per person or they will charge you 100 pesos. We had spent 3 days there and approx $50 us each day but on our final day we only spent 100 pesos and they charged us the 100 pesos additionally for the bed on the beach. Just be prepared so you don't have any surprises
