“Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2009

The service from the hotel staff was excellent and personal. Especially the older guy, Aleksander, was really helpful and gave us lot of useful information of things to do around Playa. We really appreciated the excellent service!

Rooms were clean and well kept. The fridge was a nice bonus. The only drawback was that the room we had was quite dark. It had only one window.

The hotel is located little further away from the beach (5-10 min walk to beach), but it is just next to a big supermarket, which was very convinient. Our room was very quiet.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and we were positively surprised about the hotel. It is excellent value for your money.

Had a fantastic stay for 2 weeks, booked as part of a package deal from the UK. Really clean (no bugs), everything worked, not just a Wal Mart round the corner but a MEGA (cheaper than wal mart and the same size). Across the road is some of the best Mexican restaurants in PDC 'El fogon', 'la poseleria' (probably both spelt wrong!!), 5 minutes from the beach and 5th av.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else if I came back to PDC as all the staff were really helpful.

I traveled with a large group of people on an educational tour and the staff at Hotel Las Golondrinas was very friendly and helpful. We were with a large group for two nights but decided to extend our stay three additional nights after the group departed. The hotel is beautiful; it literally has trees and plants in the small open area where the pool is. At night it is so pretty with their decorative lights that hang over the pool and in the trees. The rooms open up to this beautiful area. The hotel has a nice breakfast available in the mornings. The teenagers especially liked the free internet and computer use in the lobby. The hotel is approximately 4-5 blocks from the beach but 1-2 blocks from Myers (grocery store/department store). The people that worked the front desk spoke english and were very helpful with informing us about the area and travel tips. The rooms were very clean, had air conditioning, cable tv, had a bottle of water each day, free water in entry, and the maids always made our towels into different designs each day (like a cruise).

Playa del Carmen is a wonderful place to visit the locals are extremely nice. Always bargain, never pay the first price! We loved the area and will definitely go back to Hotel Las Golondrinas! My husband threatened to lose our passports, so we could stay.

A great small hotel in an ideal location just 5 min walk from main 5th Avenue. Rooms were kept exceptionally clean and the staff at reception were friendly and very helpful. Air conditioning was efficient, Tv with 100 plus channels. Continental breakfast was more than adequate.
The real plus point for me was the peace and quite throughout the day and night. If you want noisy day/night entertainment and people gorging themselves at meal times then this is not for you!
The rooms could be improved by the addition of a small fridge. Whilst it did not bother me the absence of a balcony or terrace may be a negative aspect for some.
I was in resort to Scuba dive so this was more of a base and for me couldn't be faulted.
If you do not wish to eat out there is a large Walmart 2 mins from hotel where you can buy excellent hot/cold food/meals to take out
I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel.

The hotel is good looking on the outside and the garden around the pool is great too...but it attract bugs. I went with a group of 7 ppl, two rooms. The people in room 101 had to switch two times because of an infestation of roaches in the room. They finally were clear of dead roaches when they got moved to the 3rd floor. Hotel service is good & timely. The pool is far from a real pool - only 3 feet deep throughout. There is also an adult pool which is even smaller. If you are going here, try and e-mail management on their website for a room on the 3rd floor away from the bugs. The rooms are also more updated, flat screen, better AC, larger rooms.

Overall, location is great...close enough to the 5th avenue and beach, decent enough service, but overpriced for a placed infested with bugs.

We booked las Golondrinas via a boutique hotels website for our last night in Yucatan. Locationwise, is pretty good, a short walk from the beach and 5 avenida. We paid over $85 without breakfast. When we arrived, we were given room 101, as a 'standard plus'. Avoid this room at all cost! First, it's located right behind the reception so you hear all the noises from people coming and going and the phone ringing.

The room smells really musky and mouldy especially towards the back end. There are two small back windows looking right to a wall and a front window which you want to keep shut as it is right into the courtyard. The lights in the back of the room were not even working. The bathroom stank - you cannot throw your toilet paper in the loo in yucatan and you can easily imagine the stink from the trash bin without a proper window/air.

The worst thing was when we woke up at 5.30am - the kitchen is right behind the beds!!! When i complained to the manager he said he was sorry but they had to start working! I said, sure, then you shouldnt offer this room at full price, or tell clients that they will have an early start. Did not even offer a complimentary breakfast.

Very poor.
