Based on reviews here, my partner and I decided to give Rana a try and figured Playa would be our "wild" part of the trip. We knew going in to expect some noise and brought ear plugs. The location was easy to find after we got off at the bus station in town. It's in the heart of activity. We...

We stayed at this "Hotel" for a few nights over New Years. First, let me list the Pros. Close to the beach. Close to 5th ave. Thed is very friendly and personable. Even though this is connected to a bar, there is a cute courtyard that separates the two. They do have a community kitchen, you are welcome to use....

There are so many ways to judge a hotel.....swanky, charming, great service, location, etc. For us it's the people and the joie de vivre. From the moment you arrive at La Rana you are made to feel welcome. Thed and Pia - from Sweden - retired young and bought the hotel thirteen years ago and made it a comfortable home-away-from-home...

Stayed there for 5 nights. The hotel has an unmistakable charm. Thed (The owner) and Jorge (The manager) are extremely friendly and treated me as part of their community from day 1. The bar attracts a very diverse crowd beyond the hotel customers and it is a nice place to hangout and chat with people. The beach is just a...

Found "La Rana Cansada" via Jason Sartain of "Fantaseadive". He offered my son and myself a package of diving and a stay at "La Rana Cansada". "La Rana Cansada" is a small hotel just a minute away from the main street of Playa del Carmen and very close to it's beaches. To me the hotel looked like a meeting point....

“Make sure you get a room in the back where you wont hear the bar and street music or smell the kitchen. Other than that, nice basic hotel in a great location.”
