Reviewed March 8, 2017

As a veteran of 14 Mexican trips there I pretty much know what to expect and MYOLI B+B was certainly way more than I expected And one of coolest places I’ve ever stayed anywhere.
The normal things people like to complain about in MX are hard as rock beds, no hot water or no water pressure, bad smells, bad service in general, noise, no A/C poor security, theft from rooms, screaming brats or bad location either the hell away and gone from civilization or in an extremely busy noisy area.
I really wasn’t looking for an all in party hotel on the beach but rather a laid back place that was quiet and a little different to the big hotels, thinking recovery, peace and quiet.
There was just something about the description, pictures and reviews of the place that intrigued me so I booked 9 nights.
This little hunk of paradise is located easily accessible to Cancun airport and only a few kms north of PDC in an area that has new roads, sewage, sidewalks etc yet very little development so far. It is basically in the jungle by the city.
You can walk down the block 5 minutes and easily hail a taxi or we will call one to come and pick you up.’ I then asked a little more about getting downtown and their response was ‘Oh we’ll just take you there and show you.’ Uhhh you’ll take me there and what??? I asked myself.
This is a little more than above and beyond the call –WOW sounds good already!
In this B+B there are basically 4 very nicely appointed adult only rooms in 2 casas that surround the pool and main owner’s residence.
The yard was beautifully landscaped featuring many interesting tropical plants and trees palms etc.as well as being a bird watcher’s delight!
The room was much like some 5 star hotels I’ve stayed in. Huge, with 16 ft vaulted ceilings, marble floors pumped not gravity fed water, all upscale plumbing and lighting fixtures and a shower area that came out of Architectural Digest – super cool! The king sized bed is more comfortable than my own expensive bed and the A/C had an instant cool feature. There was a new frig, 2 chairs and a table as well as another chair and bench for your suitcases all nicely laid out. There was a very good sized 1080p TV and Sat/netflix but I never used them. Tons of storage in the built in mahogany cabinets
Linens and towels were top quality and you even got 2 beach towels for around the pool or if you decided to go to the beach.
So far I’m mighty impressed and haven’t even unpacked or gotten into the pristine guitar shaped pool yet!
Chris told me there were underground aquifers called cenotes and that was where they could access fresh water. Consequently the pool was always crystal clear and a surprisingly cool temperature. I really could go on about this place forever…
Every morning at 10 Luiz their hired man knocked on my door and I got a pot of coffee and a biscuit and they didn’t even charge me for it.
On my first day Chris drove me downtown and showed me a few places before dropping me off on 5 Ave. the downtown, shopping, entertainment pedestrian mall just off the beach. You can go anywhere in PDC for $4-7 CDN
I am writing this review because I think this place is simply outstanding in terms of being surrounded by beauty, cleanliness of the whole site, modern upscale room, quiet location, proximity to downtown and of course the genuine friendliness, kindness and helpfulness provided by Chris and Karin.

After a long walk around Playa to take care of some errands, my husband and I stopped in at this smoothie café and had the most delicious smoothie and fruit drinks. All natural, homemade and refreshing! We also enjoyed chatting with the manager who made our refreshments. It was quaint and lovely.

This place is not for lazy tourists ;) because you'll have to leave the 5th Avenue and to turn in Constituyentes and walk for few minutes to find it (you leave the sea at your shoulders and the place is on the left side of the road) ! But I would walk also for hundreds meters in order to taste their incredible beautiful fresh and tasty smoothies! My favorite one is the Yum Yum Tropical Juice with the addiction of Chia seeds (very rich in omega 3 and omega 6 nutrients).
It's a very simple tiny place, clean and welcoming, very different from the beautiful ambitious places you find all over Playa Del Carmen, but the fruit is so fresh and it is prepared with a lot of care.

The owner is such a gentle and available person; he's dreaming to visit Greece at least once in his life. I'd love to help him realizing his dreams letting people know how good his smoothies and juices are! Enjoy them!
