Hotel Real del Mayab
Ranked #10 of 185 Playa del Carmen B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 December 2011

I just needed to stay in Playa for an early am departure and this was the most reasonably priced hotel I could find. What a pleasant surprise! I wasn't expecting much, but the rooms were very clean, the staff looked high and low for me for a wine opener and found one! The kicker for me though, was when I was informed that the included continental breakfast starts at 7:30am, I was devastated as I needed to leave by 7-ish, and the staff got up and at 'em early so that I could get my coffee fix! They are stars! Even found a movie in english on the tv, all in all, a really great deal.

Room Tip: I believe there are only 11 rooms, 4 downstairs. I would book early enough to get a downstairs room...

when i checked in late night the guy in charge smiled and gave me the keys without even asking me for any id. i got a large room with two beds and a large bathroom. the hotel is clean and well run by a very friendly mexican owner.
a negative incident happened when the cleaning staff threw away my contact lens container. i told the owner, he apologised and ten minutes later he knocked on my door with a new container that he had bought somewhere in the neighborhood.
free breakfast was good and plentiful: fruits, toast, marmelade, honey,nutella, cereals, premium filtered coffee and real orange juice
playa is so small that you can walk almost anywhere within 10 minutes, even to walmart.
real de mayab is located at the end of the runway of the small airport-dont worry, there is no noise during nighttime and during the day you will hardly notice the occasional small aircraft.

real de mayab is probably the best value in carmen and the owner one of the nicest people there

The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Location is really good as it is very near the beach and bus station, its only a short walking distance. However the beds are a little too hard and the room gets bright early in the morning as the shades are not really proper ones.

Real del Mayab is very well located close to the Southern end of the town and just a few minutes walk from the beach. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is basic, but similar to most Mexican breakfasts (toast/bread, jam, some cereals, bananas, apples, coffee and juice). The rooms are large and clean. There is a safety box, tv and a/c in rooms.
The bed is large and ok, but not luxury. There was some noise during the night from the many bars and restaurants nearby, but this is certainly a problem for all hotels of the area. Bring earplugs! The hotel has free parking.
However it was quite difficult to find to the hotel, even if one knows its exact location on the map. The problem is that almost all streets in town are one way streets and many in the neighborhood are closed for cars. You have to ziczac certain set of streets to be able to drive there (you have to come from the south driving Av 10, but to reach Av 10 you have to drive Av 15 North first and then drive 3Sur to west. Pretty confusing).

This is not really a hotel but a basic bed & breakfast. Continental breakfast available for exactly one hour, not a minute more. No facilities for tea/coffee outside the breakfast hour. However, it is very clean and well located for beach, restaurants and shops but very noisy as it is beside a small airfield, a taxi rank, a coach depot and a car hire office.
