Really lovely small hotel which we found at a great price for the location and standard of both the room and breakfast served on the roof terrace. Beach club passes were useful and we would recommend Canibal out of those we tried. Amazing "towel art" in the rooms was a nice touch. Staff helpful and friendly.

Stayed: March 2012

Been there last month on our honeymoon and loved every single second of our stay.
Great breakfast with a variety of choices every day something else.
The location is good is on the 5 eve between 38 and 40 street, it's just a bit far from all the commotion but it's 7 min walk.
The hotel is very plesent, quiet, clean with a nice p small pool.
But the main reason that I'm writing this review is a great person that work there that help us in a way I've never seen before in a hotel, her name is Paloma and she is amazing and helpful and kind in every situation. Best vacation we ever had!! Thank you Paloma!

This hotel was recommended by friends who have stayed in Playa before. It was great in every way. The location is perfect for access to the beach and shopping/dining and still quiet. The staff went above and beyond in all categories. The breakfast ladies made breakfast to order with a smile. The outdoor terrace where breakfast is served is lovely. The desk staff helped us find great restaurants for dinner and helped with reservations for meals and other activities as well. The cleaning staff also were superlative. The room could use more space for sitting other than on your bed and a couple of drawers for storing clothing. But these are minor points. There were several nice places to sit outdoors to read or drink a beer and eat snacks if we wanted. The weather was always great so we did not really care about being in our room except to sleep. The craziness of 5th ave was close but not audible. We would recommend this hotel to couples who want a great value and service. We will be back!!

We are pleased that the hotel has been recommended by friends and has been your total satisfaction.
As you say, every detail is important to us as a rich breakfast in the morning makes you an excellent day and then visit a nearby beach club are the advantages you get to stay in a small boutique hotel on Fifth Avenue.

Thanks for your comment!

While we have vacationed in Playa many times, this is our first stay at Casa Ticul. We enjoy staying in north Playa, a more quiet, less frenetic area. We loved this hotel: nice size rooms with fridge & comfortable beds, updated bathroom with waterfall shower, thick towels, his/her bathrobes & slippers - which were a very nice touch. Breakfast,served roof-top, was wonderful, if not on the menu, just ask and they will gladly accommodate. Recommend you take advantage of the complimentary beach passes to Las Palapas, much less noisy and hectic than Mamitas. A convenience store right on the corner sells wine, beer and snacks, the restaurant Kool Fish will deliver food to the rooftop, or poolside making this another unique feature. Staff is friendly and always helpful. We will definitely be returning to this wonderful boutique hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid first floor rooms facing pool - too much morning sun

Casa Ticul offers from all the amenities required for comfort during your stay.
The advantage of having a variety of restaurants around the hotel to pick one and enjoy a romantic evening on our terrace falita is a detail that is very enjoyable.

We just got back from a week in Playa del Carmen and we stayed here based on the TripAdvisor reviews. The good reviews area effect our experience. Here are some reasons to stay here:
1) Location! It's on 5ta Avenida, which is the main tourist drag in l,aya del Carmen, but it's at the quieter, less obnoxious end of the street. Bring comfy flip flops or shoes and the walk to the busy end isn't terrible--we did it several times. There's good food nearby, including some tasty restaurants (Pachamama, ComoComo, Luna Maya, Kool Fish, Drupas38, etc.), a cool little craft beer place (The Beer Club), and beach clubs.

2) Breakfast! Many reviews rave about breakfast, and they're right. Three wonderfully friendly women run the rooftop breakfast service. There is fresh squeezed juice, breads, fresh fruit, yogurt, and a good selection of breakfast main courses (omelette, pancakes, quesadillas, and a daily special that changes). Don't forget to tip them a little something each time or give them a big tip at the beginning. They deserve it.

3) Helpful concierge/registration staff! The women who rotate at te front desk were helpful. They had good recommendations, helped us rent a car to go to Coba, and always asked us about our day.

4) Free beach club access! We only went to two of the three options. We really liked Las Palapas. They provide towels and there's no drink/food consumption minimum. We got there early and got a good spot and our service was great. We also went to Mamitas, which we didn't like. They don't give you towels here, so you have to vring them from te hotel. Awful service, crowded, loud music... it wasn't at all comfortable or relaxing. Canibal Royale is the third option which we didn't try. It's a good place to go if you want old since they have a minimum food/drink consumption limit.

5) Housekeeping staff! Every day we had a new work of towel art on our bed. It made coming back to the room fun (and funny).

6) Purified water! They have purified water cookers on each floor. You can fill up bottles or your glasses, which saves you money on buying bottled water. Of course, if you want bottled water there's a little store at the end of the block--very close.

7) The door guy! He's always smiling and so polite.

My only complaints are the plumbing and complimentary toiletries.

1) The plumbing. If you try to take a shower when other people on lower floors are also showering, expect no water. The shower went dry when I was trying to shower at 8 one morning.

2) the complimentary shampoo and conditioner aren't great. Bring your own or buy it there. It made my hair feel icky.

Overall this place is great. It's a good home base for exploring this area--close to Tulum, Cozumel, Coba, etc. The rates make it especially great. Casa Ticul was great.

(PS - I have a horrible bed bug phobia and search every room I stay in. I searched our room pretty thoroughly. Our room was bed bug free--found absolutely no physical evidence of them and received no bites over 6 nights in our room--Room #8.)

Room Tip: We stayed in #8, which was quiet but in a higher traffic area. We put the "Rest" sign (it...
