Fantastic location, budget accom perfect for solo travellers or those who want to be right on 5th ave on a budget. Had a few issues with aircon, wifi and the showers (especially hot water) though (none worked reliably). Included breakfast is very convenient too though.

Playalingua is very centrally located 2 blocks from the beach, which is why I chose it. I also chose it because it was very affordable, and I didn't need much since I would be not lounging about in my room ever. With so much to do in the area, who wants to be inside? I rented a single room with...

A very pleasant stay in the middle of all the huzzle and buzzel of downtown Playa del Carmen. Also the place to stay in for Spanish lessons - their speciality. Many types of rooms at decent prices. Brekfast is included.

The room was small, but enough space, and with everything you might need. The breakfast is served downstairs everyday by a very cool guy Juan. The second...

Playalingua is comfortable and affordable hotel in Playa del Carmen. Rooms are clean, towels were changing every day (and you will need a fresh towel every day), small and nice pool on their territory and it's cheap! Btw prices include breakfast with fresh fruits and omlet. I wish I could stay longer..

Good value for Cancun location. Clean room. Shared bathrooms for many rooms. Noise from rooftop bar next door reminded me I hadn't packed ear earplugs. Bought some from pharmacy but you don't want to have to need them.
