This place is a great find. You are 1 block from the ADO terminal and half a block off of 5th ave. but the compound is quiet and peacful, you are close to the maddness but can easily get away. Great sun deck with ocen views! good value...about 65 USD per night in the old building and weak mexican breakfast. I would stay here again. Other places are cheaper like 45-50 USD, but you get so much less.

Like other posters have said, the photos do not do this place justice. The photos posted by the hotel are very acurate of this hotel and any photo before 2009 is not because the hotel has been completely remodeled. Breakfast is now served on the property and is included. You have 2 choices each day. The hotel is half a block to the beach and about a block from the ADO bus station. The staff was very friendly and spoke English. Juan behind the front desk was especially helpfull and informative. He can recommend restaurants and can also occasionally offer you a card for a discount. Massages are available on the sundeck overlooking the ocean. The hotel was sold out during our stay but did not seem crowded. Coffee makers are available for the room for a $25 deposit.
We rented the larger king with a small refrigerator and partial view of the ocean. Only negative was the elevator was broke for part of our stay. I would stay here again, hopefully in the fall!!

There are several hotels such as the Sian Kaan that is very clean, reasonable priced and walking distance from the beach. The hotel offers free breakfast.

You must go to the local airport right down 5th avenue. My fiancee and I went on the two man airplane glider. It was a great experience and very cheap.

Good breakfast. Spent most of our daytime at the nearby beach.Small pool area could use a few more lounge chairs. Nice roof deck for watching sunset over the city.

We really enjoyed our stay at Posada Sian Ka'an.

The hotel is conveniently located between 5th avenue and the beach, outside (south) of the party district and loud dancing clubs.

The room was a little bit small, but nice and clean. The staff was really helpful and breakfast was available early in the morning.

It seems that most pictures found on reviews website are quite outdated. The hotel is a lot nicer than some pictures show. It is in fact VERY well maintained with nice gardens, waterfalls and a small pool.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for which I paid 72USD$ a night.

We were there during our honey moon trip around Yucatan. We did not booked a hotel in Playa del Carmen so it was quite stressful to find one. We asked in several places – always close to the beach. All were very noisy and extremely expensive as for the standard offered. When we entered Posada Sian Kaan we knew we will stay there. The lobby is nice, the people working were extremely helpful. The rooms are quite, clean and have nice balconies. It’s not sea view, but rooms overlook a nice garden. We had a “honey mooners” surprise in the morning during breakfast, which was very nice. It is a perfect place if you want to make a trip to Cozumel as the ferry is 7 minutes walking from there. On the corner you have a nice sea food restaurant. Definitely a nice place to stay!

this was my 9th trip to the area and have stayed at a lot of hotels in the area from 2 star to 5 star. This was by far the best value and overall best stay yet. Very pleasant staff, amazing location and newly renovated and clean rooms that were comparable to some of the high priced rooms in the all inclusive resorts. Although the beds were a little hard, I have to say that I have yet to find any hotel in Playa that has anything but a harder bed no matter if it is a 5 star or not. We will for sure come back and have already recommended it to friends who have also booked in for later this month. Do note this is not a place to stay if your purpose is to go to the area to party. It is nice and quiet and centrally located to everything in the heart of 5th and the beach. Luved it soo much. :) ohhh and free wifi too which was a huge bonus
