“not as good as our last visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

we stayed at 3 places in Playa 2 years ago, and loved Posada Freud (giving it a good review on this site) and so headed back there this year. Last time we felt that we had a great room at a good price, with the only pitfall being the late (3am), loud music.
Sadly,we felt it had let itself go a bit this visit. We walked right on past as the whole front was in darkness, not even the hotel sign was lit up and the reception guy was sat in the dark. We had our old room- minus the fridge (which was replaced) and hot water (which we never got). The crockery was much depleted and the cutlery was down to 2 forks and a spoon. The loud music also went on later than our first visit, heard even through ear-plugs.
We had planned 4 more days there at the end of our holiday, but found a bigger, quieter, cheaper room with full self-catering utensils. Sorry Posada, our love of you has waned.

Stayed at Freud's for a couple of nights Sept 2011. The rooms are spacious, airy, and super clean, with an excellent location and very good price.

In addition we got free beach loungers for the 2 days at nearby Sensi, free use of beach towels and free Wifi. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. All in all an excellent stay.

I went there with my girlfriend four the last 2 days of our vacations in the Playa del Carmen area. I was cheap but still very clean and quiet. The hotel itself is accessible by an "alley" between a converse shop and a bar on he 5th avenue so the real facade is hidden from most tourists eyes.

The only bad comment I can give (I had to find one) is that we had problems using the (free) wifi.

I recommend this hotel for any couple or family who want to stay in playa, but still be able to escape its loud and crowded streets for a few hours of good sleep.

We have been comming to Posada Freud for the last 17 years and we have seen it grow from a rusticplace into a wonderfull hotel with comfortable rooms . All rooms are different with there own special touch. The place is clean and right on the main street so the beach and everything you need is nearby.
There is planty interesting places to visit. Like the Mayan ruins and beautifull sweetwater senotes .
Posada Freud is the place to be if you want a lot off everything. Beach ; Culture; Shopping ; Going Out ; Nature and Diving and most important Friendly people .

Except for a minor ant problem (management was addressing), I could not fault the experience. Music from the adjacent business was rather loud, but then, if you're looking for a quiet retreat, why would you pick a place on 5th ave.? Of the several places I've stayed in Playa, this is the one I would choose again!

We found there a gorgeous, cozy, romantic posada in the mainstreet, all necessary shops, coffeshops, dining places, restaurants nearby AND very close to the beach. The staff is friendly and helpful, takes care of any wish. You may chose between rooms, studio, appartments - every one has an individual character, homely, charming and very well designed in typical Mexican style. A very nice garden invites you to take a rest in the hammock. Surrounding music stops around midnight, so no problems with sleeping.
Thank you for this wonderful time!
