Lovely little boutique Hotel located on the very touristy 5th avenue in Playa del Carmen.
The good: clean and modern rooms, cotton sheets, comfortable beds, great location, great bar on the roof, access to many beach clubs, nice little mini bar, breakfast often included, not expensive hotel, professional and friendly front desk service. Lots of positives.
The not so good: on 5th avenue. Noisy in the front rooms and there is a lounge and bar on the roof. You sort of can't get away from the noise. People coming down from the bar are usually quite noisy (between midnight and 1 AM). Turn the aircon on max to drown out the noise. There are issues with the wifi: if you are on Apple (phones, pads, etc.) you might not be able to log in (grrrrr). The front desk does have a computer and printer, but not connected to each other (grrrrr). Had to go to an internet cafe!
This time was a bit too noisy and the wifi issue got to me. I had to go to Starbucks or other restaurants to get wifi.
I would still recommend this hotel and I will go back. I had been there two years ago and they have made improvements. Perhaps they will be even better the next time.
