This is a great boutique hotel in Playa del Carmen; near enough to walk to all the action but with a peaceful pool area where you can laze the afternoon away in the sun. The rooms are really well-maintained, the beds are comfortable and our room had a balcony view over the pool. The fact that there are no children around also helps make the pool area so relaxing.
The hotel is only one block from the pedestrianized area where most of the bars and restaurants are to be found and, although we didn’t check them out, the hotel has access to two private beach clubs where you can spend the day if you wish. The food and drink in the bar/restaurant were great, the included breakfast was more than ample to keep you going until mid-afternoon and the staff was eager to help and advise whenever you needed them to.
We drove to Playa and the hotel offers discounted parking at a mall over the road. Be careful not to use the private car park opposite the hotel as it is more expensive. It is less than an hour to both Tulum and Cancún airport and, as we had a car, we drove to Akumal lagoon where there was great snorkelling without having to pay an expensive excursion price.
Overall, a great hotel; I didn’t see anything better in the centre of Playa del Carmen.
