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.

I stayed at this hotel in December 2013. Although it is just steps from 5th Ave, it's very quiet, safe and secure. The rooms are clean, with daily maid service. The rates are more than reasonable for the accomodations. The little courtyard is quaint with various shops and an excellent Italian restaurant. Miguel is a terrific host, he's helpful, informative...

I have tried to make a booking, and they just can not give me any answer. It is a pity, that now they have such a great evaluation they are trying to increase the price and the service is becoming exclusive.

I`ve been staying at Jardin de Marieta each time I am going to Playa del Carmen and there is nothing like it! Placed in a beautiful tropical garden right in the centre of Playa but so quiet and peaceful..many people just walk into the courtyard just to take pictures, the lucky ones get an apartment or room at Marieta`s. The...

I was walking on 5th avenue checking out hotels and came across this beautiful courtyard hotel. Miguel greeted me and was so friendly. Based on his reception, decided to move from the hotel we were staying to Jardin de Marieta. The room was not ready but Miguel offered to store our luggage and when we came back from the beach...

Impossible to imagine a better location for the hotel. It's situated on the 5th avenue, one minute to the beach, though you don't hear the rush from the street, as the hotel windows are looking at the beautiful yard, which is actually a peace of art. The stuff is very friendly and helpful (especially Miguel, who is so nice and...

I love this place. The rooms are large and clean. Some have a private back balcony. The price is very fair and you are in the heart of the action. And it always seems to be quiet at night. The front desk clerk is always very nice. My only complaint is the narrow stairs; which make the trip up and...
