Caught last ADO bus to Playa del Carmen arriving at 0125 and at our hotel, Hotel Delfin, a few minutes later. Corner of 5th Ave and 6th Street, only three blocks from the bus station. I had called the hotel, from Ft Lauderdale, to tell them we would not be arriving until around

This is a very nice old hotel that has been given a 2.8 to 3.5 star rating only because many visitors have been spoiled with in house restaurants & elevators. This hotel doesn't have either so if you can't climb then reserve a room as close to the ground floor as possible.

If you like small hotels as opposed to large resorts then I highly recommend this little gem! Don't let the fact that it is right on 5th Ave worry you. We could hear a bit of music outside but with the A/C and the fan running it muffled any sounds. The king size pillow top bed

Unfortunately they do not have beach towels, but 15 feet across from the hotel is a nice store that sells beach towels for about $7 U.S. I always buy a towel when i'm there and give it away before I leave!

"I would pay to upgrade to a King size room and have a balcony."
"There are no ground floor rooms, but the staff will help you carry your bags."
"Room 7 has two double beds and a large bathroom"
"We were on second floor on street side and there was no noise problem at all. And the room was plenty dark with curtains drawn for sleeping. Although the room was comfortable, we didn't really care for the pedestal sink in the bathroom, as there was no room to put toiletries, etc."
"I recommend the penthouse suites on fourth floor!!"
