Blue Parrot 5th Avenue
Ranked #203 of 217 Hotels in Playa del Carmen
Reviewed August 12, 2011

If you're staying in downtown playa del carmen, this is probably one of your better choices. It's a good value, rooms are fairly clean, pretty basic.
The pool at the suites location is nice to look at, but not practical for swimming. But that's what the beach is there for anyways. And if you wanted a huge pool with a swim up bar you'd be at one of those all inclusive resorts on the riviera maya.
The breakfast was lame, just a cup of coffee and some sliced fruit. Get breakfast at a local place, it's worth the extra few dollars

It's a great place to stay with a group of friends. Plus you get free admission to the Blue parrot club on the beach at night, and free beach chairs during the day. Those can add up believe it or not.

Room Tip: ask for upgrades, especially during the low season

Be careful with the staff of this place. We were a party of 8 people and asked for 8 cocktails, the gave us 6 cocktails without alcohol and 2 with alcohol. They assume we were drunk and we were not going to notice that they were stealing us selling drinks without alcohol. We were very polite asking the waiter to change our drinks, but he started yelling at us, he was very rude. We did not want to ruin our night fighting with that guy so we called the manager and we told her what happened. The waiter told us the amount we owed but he did not provide a receipt. I asked him that he must provide a receipt but he told me that I needed some kind of mexican number in order to get a receipt.
Very bad experience, do not go there.

Great location, great service from the hotel staff but not from the beach club staff. Beach club entrance and breakfast was included so that was great. Enjoyed the club! Staff at club is money hungry therefor you will not get treated well unless you blow money. Would not recommend sharing room with another couple or anyone you're not comfortable seeing you naked since the shower is not enclosed and you can be seen from the sink/vanity mirror.

There is a major scam going on at the Blue Parrott bar on 12th Avenue and the beach. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights there are street touts outside the entrance "selling" wrist bands to enter the bar. They will promise you a free drink with the band and tell you that all drink are free for the ladies. After paying the guy money for the wrist band to get in you will soon discover that this is all untrue! When we complained to the management and door staff they said that it is not their problem and we would have to talk to the guy who sold us the wrist band. This is clearly a scam co ordinated with The Blue Parrot as the staff at the entrance to the Blue parrott scan the bar code on your wrist band and are fully aware of the guy in the street selling the bands as its the only way to enter the club.

When we asked for our money back the manager got violent and threatened to punch us and through us out! Be warned!

The Blue Parrot is an OK hotel if you want to be right in the middle of the action. It's in the middle of 5th Av which is great for getting around, but it's LOUD at night with music lasting until about 3 a.m. So I guess if you plan to stay up late and party it would be OK to stay here, but I won't stay here again.

We were on a 10 day trip in Cancun, but decided to take a day/night trip to Playa del Carmen to show our friends as they had never been to PDC before. We arrived with a small group that afternoon and did the beach clubs/5th Ave stroll - drinks, shopping, drinks, dinner. Only us and another couple were staying overnight, so as we made our way up and down 5th, we would check out the hotel rates of various places. We chose Blue Parrot on 5th and were very pleased.

The rate for each room (one was a King, the other two Queens) was about $65/room. This rate included a nice/simple breakfast which consisted of a fresh fluit place and toast out on the beach. It also included the cover for the Blue Parrot club that night as well as beach chairs the next day.

The room was cute. Older, but with a modern touch. LOVED it. The shower is in the room and only separated by a cement wall, so if you are just friends it could be a bit awkward for the lack of privacy. I was with my hubby and could care less. The bed was hard, but slept wonderfully.

Room amenities included two small bottles of water, shampoo, soap - the usual. I think there also was a coffee machine, but we don't use it so I don't pay that much attention.

Noise from the club could be an issue. I opted to stay in that night while the others went to the clubs. Yes, I could hear the music, but it definately didn't keep me up at all.

I'd have no problem staying here again, or recommending it to anyone else. In that recommendation, I would be sure to mention that noise could be a problem but for us it wasn't. In fact, the couple that was with us LOVED LOVED LOVED it all. They fell in love with Playa del Carmen immediately, but also with the Blue Parrot hotel.

From 7am until 8pm, there were workers chisiling concrete in the roof of the hotel directly above our room. Apparently the management thinks that it is OK to rent out the room directly below this kind of activity, and charge high season prices to boot. Not a good place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful and quiet nights sleep.
