Playa Palms was a wonderful hotel! It is perfectly located -- within easy walking distance of Quinta Avenida and several excellent restaurants off the main shopping street. It was also right on the beach. We had but to walk out our door, past the charming pool, and there was that sugary Caribbean sand dotted with comfy loungers. We didn't even have to get up to get a drink. Gabriele kept them coming, if we so desired.
A couple of mornings, we got up, took a little walk down the beach and watched the sunrise. Divine!
Our room was perfect -- we could have lived there indefinitely! "Leticia" kept it impeccably clean the five days we were there. Carlos, the manager, was very helpful and always ready with a smile and friendly greeting. Marco gave us several terrific recommendations for places to eat where the locals go.
The wifi worked perfectly. We relaxed on our balcony, swinging in the hammock and enjoying the sunshine. And yes, there are a couple of nearby clubs that are loud at night, but we closed the slider door, turned on the overhead fan, and didn't hear a thing.
We would DEFINITELY go back to Playa Palms Beach Hotel!
