So I booked this hotel because the price was right and although I had read all the reviews about it being extremely noisy the party girl side of me decided that meant there was a lot of awesome stuff to do around it and was actually a plus. I was very wrong. It's not JUST noisy there is a reverberation...

it's sooooo loud. and the internet doesn't work in the room as they promised. the hotel itself is nice for it's money but it's so freaking loud (I normally don't get bothered by noise) and there is no way you can go to sleep. I am staying here for the first night. I booked two nights and it's too late...

First, communications to make the reservations were complicated and difficult. Checking in, the requests we made for rooms was completely disregarded and the desk was confused. I was assigned a room that was not what I had booked and was stuck with it for the entire stay. During my stay the sheets WERE NOT CHANGED, (4 nights) even after I...

Crashed here for one night so we could see Playa del Carmen before heading to our all-inclusive. We read the reviews about the noise, but brought earplugs and slept through much of the racket. Fan and a/c helped keep it down too. Bed was a little hard and springy, but the place in general was adorable, a lovely (although chilly)...

We had booked this hotel for the holidays and had to leave after the first night after the music shook our windows until 5am. Worst night I have ever spent in a hotel, did not sleep one minute. Still fighting with Expedia to get the $473 back I was charged even though I was told by hotel we would not...

First I have to give it up to the staff, all of the staff at Tropical Casablanca are super friendly and knowledgeable, everyday they gave us undivided attention, tips and great recommendations for food and shops. I especially want to thank Emilia and Daniella every day they gave us excellent advice in English and Spanish. The staff there goes above...

The staff is absolutely amazing! And the owner Nicola is so wonderful. You can't help but fall in love with them, they're all just great! And the location couldn't be better...one block from the beach and one block from 5th Avenue (which if you've never been is exactly where you want to be...tons of restaurants and shopping to be done)!...

Let's get this out of the way: as many other travelers have attested to, it's loud - given that it's basically on top of at least four nightclubs. Our group was made up of city dwellers and suburbians alike, and we all had trouble sleeping. But long days on the beach paired with ear plugs made sleep not too hard...

This is the loudest place I have ever stayed. I live in New York City and I can sleep almost anywhere. This is like sleeping in the bathroom of the loudest club you can imagine. I am in my early 30s and was there with a group of friends. We were out late every night and this was still an...

Thank you for your compliment about our staff, the cleaniness of the hotel and their service. What we can not control is the noise during the christmas and new years celebrations which this year were more than any of us could imagine from the neighbouring bars. Please note that when you were surprised at the noise, which did get worse...

“If you stay here make sure you get rooms in the back (on the left side if facing the hotel). We had number 20 which was slightly better. Number 6 on the right side was a night mare.”

“Seems the rooms in the villa were a little quieter--If we'd been on the outside next to Dirty Martini I imagine it would have been quite loud.”
