I spent only one night here. The room was large enough but the bed was tiny. The bathroom was clean, as were the towels. There was a bit of outside noise, mainly construction which is not the fault of the hotel but did effect my sleep. There were a lot of scuff marks on the walls. The little cafe next... More

Affordable price. The hotel is clean. It has buffet breakfast right next door for 70Peso pax. Nice reception area. Supermarket is 1 min walk. It's a bit of long walk to good restaurants we want to go to, as well as to main ADO station or Collectivo station - but doable. The room is spacious. However water takes 10-20 mins... More

I reserved online as our plane arrived late I did not want to search for a place, I was positively surprised by the place, bright rooms, good large bed, a coffee shop right next door which seems part of the hotel with a buffet breakfast

Great location. All the amenities that you know and need. And the staff is super friendly, taking care of your every need. The value they deliver for the money you spend is excellent. Zero complaints.

Stayed here with my Son on a trip to Playa del Carmen. I chose this place because the rates were good, the location was close enough to the beach and attractions but also local highlights, and there was free parking included for my rental car. I was not disappointed. There was a pleasant breakfast served every morning on the Viranda... More

Nice hotel inside...outside looks a little poor...location is not bad, walking distance to 5th Avenue but area is oposit to some wholesale market with a lot of trucks and quite noisy. But rooms are nice, also staff very polite and speak good English and has privat locked parking. Worth for money. I would recommend it.

I'd spent some weeks here 4 years ago, this year I really wanted to stay here again. Was a really good choice again :) The location is really good, only 5 minutes by walk from the center. Although, there is a construction near to the hotel, it is a little bit noisy during the day. But, in that hot weather,... More
