Thanks for posting your comments regarding your stay, even after so much time has passed. We're glad you enjoyed things so much here overall, though we were very surprised to read of the two strange experiences you had, especially since I don't believe you commented on either of them when I checked with you towards the end of your stay...

We stayed there May 23-30. The room was spacious and neat. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast on the beach was the best! An excellent location, close to 5th ave and no noise! Chairs and towels provided right on the beach. This was our babymoon and we just had the best time!!

We stayed at Playa Maya May 11 – 15. This is our 3rd stay in PDC in as many years. This was our first stay at Playa Maya. We booked just about 2 months out, so we were only able to get the Deluxe Jacuzzi Garden Room. Our room had one king bed, a futon sofa, a flat-screen TV, a...

The staff was slow to warm up to us when we arrived, but by the second day was really, really nice and helpful. It's a great location and very quiet, especially for a place in the middle of Playa del Carmen. The room was standard, like a chain hotel, with no charm or distinguishing factors. So much could be done...

Thanks for your comments! I'm glad you found us to be a superior choice and enjoyed the location and some of the service points so much, even though you were less impressed with the decor. Your pictures, however, indicate that you elected just a standard class room, and these are no-frills rooms (note the lack of or obstructed view in...

It is hard to call something impeccable, but Playa Maya hotel fits this description. We stayed for one week in April and it was a second visit after a few years. The experience was just as invariably great; the management and the staff is friendly and accomodating (they almost give you the feeling of home), the rooms are spacious and...

My wife and I just returned from a 6-night stay at the Playa Maya, and we had a great experience. The hotel is very clean, the staff was helpful and friendly, and the location is amazing. We also found the Playa Maya (and Playa del Carmen) to be fairly priced. Perhaps it's due to the exchange rate, but we felt...

My wife and I just returned from our first trip to Playa Del Carmen and we stayed at the Playa Maya for 4 nights.

We stayed at the Playa Maya from the 15th-22nd of March. This was our first vacation to Mexico and I did the research and booked for my husband and I and his brother and girlfriend--so I was nervous that everything was going to turn out o.k. in terms of our hotel. We all were VERY happy with the entire experience...
