First the bad news.. US Airways delayed our flight 2 hours, missed our connecting flight, lost our baggage, so we had nothing to wear for 2 days. When we arrived, they knew it was my GF's birthday (we didnt tell them) , and they left a nice card on the bed and also a small cake in the fridge for...

This hotel is amazing. We were on a budget in Playa, but we decided to splurg a little on this hotel as we needed a little luxury. Our room was huge with a shower, large bed, a couch and a kitchenette. We even had a docking station for playng music before going out in the evening. The only thing missing...

As a frequent traveler to Playa I have had the opportunity to stay in many small hotels in town and each one has had their charms, but if you want to be on the beach I would suggest this property. We arrived rather early in the day and our room was not yet ready, so we left our bags in...

We loved our stay at the Playa Palms in July. This is not a 5 star resort or anything, but a wonderful location and view make it worth it! I would not stay in any other room but beachfront for the sheer proximity to the beach and gorgeous view. Being a small hotel certainly gives Playa Palms an advantage in...

I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. Staff: Great Location: Great - Walk out of your room and you're on the beach and block away from the heart of Playa Price: Unbelievably affordable for location Pool: Small but good enough to refesh yourself.

I love this place, right in front of the beach and close to all the attractions in PDC. The pool is very fresh, because of all the palms around we had enough shade to relax in the pool.

My friend and i were booked to stay at Club Yebo which has an agreement with Playa Palms so guests can use the beach chairs, etc. When we checked in we were upgraded to a room @ Playa Plams for no extra charge!
