Small hotel, nice beach, decent food, friendly and helpful staff. Perfect for our family who wanted to lie on a beach, read books, walk on the beach and go for a swim to cool off. The front desk was helpful, gave some good advice about renting a car to go to Coba instead of a cab or a tour van and arranged for the drop off and pick up of the rental car at the hotel. We used PDC transfers to and from the airport and spent the extra $30 for an hour at the Mega store in Playa on the way in. I highly recommend this as we stocked up on beverages, snacks, lunch food and suntan lotion before we checked in. We spent a morning in Playa one day and did the 1.5 hr beach walk to Playa on another as our only other excursions during a 10 day stay. Otherwise we were on the beach in front of the hotel from sunup to sundown. If you want to get a palapa for the day better hit the beach before 6am. However, on the last couple days the staff was putting beach umbrellas out for people so I think all you have to do is ask if you want one. The noise from the bar after dinner was loud enough that we had to close the door to the balcony of our third floor room to go to sleep but the bar shut down around 11pm so it was no big deal. People are entitled to relax, have a drink and some conversation after dinner, in my view. They're on vacation. All in all a wonderful vacation in a beautiful place. We'd all go back again.
