Blue Pearl Suites
Reviewed March 11, 2011

Blue Pearl Suites is a great place to stay when you want to be just a block away from the beach and 5th Ave. We stayed in one of their 2 bedroom units with some of our good friends and loved the location. The hotel staff is great, Julio is the manager and he provided fantastic recommendations for places to visit and eat.
The only potential downside depends upon your perspective. Its one block south of 12 Norte which is the corner with several clubs that play music into the early morning. With the windows closed and the A/C going it didn't bother us, and we liked the proximity to 5th and the beach, plus the clubs were fun for a couple of nights.
Overall I'd highly recommend the Pearl. The roof top pool is quiet and a nice view of the ocean, and with only 8 unit in the bldg it was never busy.
We plan on returning on our next trip.

Our apartment was spacious and very comfortable. Very close to the beach and 5th avenue. Best regards to Julio from girl, who loves keys :)

What a wonderful, wonderful stay we again had at the Blue Pearl! Very romantic, perfect location, great staff and service. Can't imagine staying anywhere else while in Playa. And contrary to the previous review, our beds, sheets, and pillows are ALWAYS very comfortable ( and we've now stayed in 3 different units)...there have ALWAYS been 3 pillows provided, with 2 more on the shelf...ALWAYS an extra blanket on that shelf if we got too cold with the A/C. Not to question the reality of their situation, but the general rule for other guests might be to ask the staff if you're missing something you need, and Julio will definitely see that you get it. What a gem he is! And once again, we always travel with ear plugs to help with sleeping...Once again, we didn't need them. We love the kitchen, the rooftop, the space, the vibe, the towel art by the recamaristas. Strongly recommended, so - Guess what? We'll be back!!

As I right this, my travel companions and I are toasting to a shot of Don Julio to a great stay at the Blue Pearl. We chose this place because of the great reviews here on Trip Advisor. To begin, we rated the sleep quality poorly because the bed was a rock and the linens were disappointing. The sheets were maybe 5 thread count and an 8 foot pillow. Good luck if you get cold, because the cheese cloth blankets did not provide any warmth if you like to sleep with the AC on. I wish there was a NA for the service, because this kind of place is like your own apartment. No frills service, but the maid will come daily if you request and did a VERY good job. We also wished Julio was a little more outgoing like we anticipated from all the other reviews that highlighted how amazing he was.

That being said, all of that didn't matter because everything else was perfect. It's one block form the beach and one block in front of Quinta. The space was ideal. It has a full kitchen, bottled water that they fill if it gets low, a beautiful balcony, and a rooftop pool (which has no service but you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks). There were 2 couples on our trip and had 2 bedrooms. It was nice that we all had our own bathroom with more than enough space. The living room has a couch that can also double as 2 beds, or just a place to take a nap. Side note, if you're planning on having a dance party and drink a bottle of tequila there's plenty of space for that!

You really can't beat this place. We would DEFINITELY come back next time we visit Playa!

Thank-you very much for taking the time to review! We really appreciate it because we work hard to make this a special place. I definitely agree that the rooftop solarium is a wonderful place to lounge!! Many thanks for your comments about the mattress and linens, we will look at it. As for service, that’s exactly what we wanted when we created the Blue Pearl: a place where you feel totally at home, a staff that is extremely discreet so you get the perks of a small hotel without the impersonalized attention and intrusion of a big place. So, welcome to your home abroad!!!
A little note about Julio: he took a few days off (he almost never does...), maybe this was during some days of your stay, but he will certainly be glad to see welcome you for your next visit!

What can I say that hasn't been said? This is one of the most beautiful, charming boutique/condo/hotels in Playa. We have been trying them all in the area and made 5 trips to Mexico last year. You will not find a friendlier, most accomodating staff! I made all of the reservations and transportation through Julio and he helped me WITH EVERY DETAIL. Even our airport transfers to his hotel. This place is immaculate. CLEAN! CLEAN! CLEAN! Yes, We did turn the air conditioner up one (weekend) night and it worked perfectly to drown out the faint sounds of the nightclubs down the street. No problem.
We stayed in the off season and I believe we had the entire place to ourselves. Julio even went to the extreme and gave us the 2 br suite (#7 see pics) for 1 night! (It was our anniversary) The rooftop pool and view is unbeatable. We had it all to ourselves. One day we spent the entire afternoon just lounging in the sun with cocktails up there.
I can't say enough about Blue Pearl ..it also played a part in us absolutely falling in love with this neighborhood. There is the beach 1/2 block away. Also, Zenzi, Wickey's (a bit pricey but it's vacation and it was fabulous) Indigo, and numerous beach bars/restaurants of all prices and dining options within walking distance. 5th Ave is a 1/2 block up the hill..I'm not sure how or why the person who only gave this 3*'s couldn't find acceptable dining?? NOT! THERE ARE HUNDREDS of places to eat. Also, it is worth mentioning because Americans especially seem to have the concept that ALL of Mexico is too dangerous and won't travel to Playa..ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I feel safer walking 5th Ave than most streets in the US..any day or night! This is a beautiful tourist area and they keep it that way. It is absolutely a different world here. You are also not going to have the Cancun experience here. :) yay.
The people are just wonderful and accomodating.
Julio and staff. I am so sorry it took me so long to post this...we love, love, love the blue pearl. See you again soon friends! Say hola to Carolyn and Carolyn who greeted us with smiles every day and the best food at the restaurant that is located just out front.
Also, The Dirty Martini is next door and the staff is just awesome. We have been back since too and feel like family there too. :) Say hello to Karen & Meyssi for us.
We can't wait to return! If you have any questions at all about this hotel or Playa, Cozumel or area feel free to email me through my profile.

Well located, only 5 mins from the public beach. Apartment clean and tidy, bonus having a balcony which became a nice chill out place. Julio was extremely friendly and helpful, sorting out our needs with little hassle.
