I've never really known how to write a fair review for when there are factors outside of control of the accommodation itself... but here goes. So, the room was nice... basic, but clean and comfortable. There was decent wifi, nice aircon and a barfridge that came in handy. The location has its pros and cons... right off the main drag,...

Our annual trek to Mexico got a good package deal for flight plus 6 nights (good enough that we didn't use the last 2 nights and instead went to Isla Holbox). Only drawback is that this hotel is not easy to find - especially since the address given is incorrect. Located on 5 Norte between 6 and 8th streets, close...

The hotel is just in the center of playa d carmen with a really nice patio and an italian restaurant. The rooms are big and clean. The owner Marieta is a really nice and friendly person. The hotel is just 5 min walking to the beach and you can fund really nice shops and restaurants near by.
