“Magic Blue”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The location, service and comfort were exceptional. My husband and I enjoyed both the city and the easy walk to the beach. There was a lot of construction in front of the hotel at the time we were there, but entering Magic Blue was like entering an oasis in the middle of Playa del Carmen!

Despite the hotel is located just across the street of Coco Bongo and whole club street, just enter the hotel and you are in different world on the island with bungalows, palms and birds. Then enter your bungalow and you are in spacious modern room with nice terrace. It is a perfect combination of relax and party time, party time and relax. After sunset whole territory are lighten with different colors, I was really enjoying the view laying in my hammock.
Facilities are in flawless condition, each leave on the grass are cut. Everybody is friendly.Only the beach in the middle of the town isn't nice, Playa Car is much better, it's about 15 min by walk. But it's not a big issue.
I can give a long list of pluses of this place, everything was mentioned before. If you consider this hotel - doesn't even doubt, just book:)

My fiancé and I recently visited Playa del Carmen for 5 days. We chose Magic Blue Hotel because of its great location. Fifth Avenue is just a few steps away. Everything was great! The staff was nice, the room was well kept, bed was very comfortable and most importantly the air conditioning worked flawlessly. We spent most of the day exploring and enjoyed coming back each time to Magic Blue Hotel as it was a peaceful oasis in the middle of all the action. Would definitely stay again if we go back to Playa.

I have stayed in many hotels in Playa del Carmen and this is definitely my favorite one. The location is perfect, right next to the main street in playa so you can walk anywhere. The rooms are very confortable and clean, great service.

Arriving after a long journey from Campeche, we were greeted by the receptionist who was warm and welcoming. The rooms are large and clean, and have all the necessary amenities. In a nutshell, the hotel is a little oasis in the middle of the town. We went to the Mamitas beach during the day, which is 10 mins away by foot, and really enjoyed arriving back at the hotel pool which is calm and a little haven after the crowds. The fifth avenue is just 2 steps away, as is Oh LaLa, one of the best restaurants in town.

The buffet breakfast is served in the restaurant next door and has a variety of continental, American and Mexican foods.

Along the beachfront, there are several hotels which may look nice but are not worth the price for value. The nicest beach area is Mamitas.

I have stayed un this hotel in more than a view occasions.

Very nice Hotel with a beautiful garden, excellent Staff and modern rooms.

I absolutely love the location, downtown but still a oasis if calm!

The top floor rooftops have been renovated and those
rooms were noisy before however after the renovation you can sleep perfectly as the ceilings were isolated as well.

I will definitely come back!!!!!

I stayed and enjoyed nine nights at this hotel during Easter 2014.
Advantages:
- Very well located in the center and close the beach
- Very clean
- Big room
- The room service is very good
- The staff is very kind and helpful
- All advantages of a Small hotel (no rush)
- Nice and quiet swimming pool
- Nice bar with correct prices
Drawbacks
- You have to request explicitly the safe with additional fee! It costs me 270 Pesos for 9 days. It's nothing but very strange to charge the safe especially when you are not informed before.
- The hotel have a deal with Coco Maya beach but you have to buy beverages or foods
- Noisy during the night till 5:00 am. (Coco bongo is very close to the hotel)

Room Tip: Avoid room located on your right when you enter the hotel coz of the street and noise during the nig...
