We decided on this hotel for its location, but found the staff friendly and competant. Smiles all around. It is very clean and has some interesting energy saving ideas. I have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

My wife did it again...she found the best value in Playa when booking our hotel. I will say, the pictures may be a bit deceiving in that it looks like some were taken for a wedding...this is not a 5 star hotel. It's a simple hotel with simple rooms and in some spots it's a little dated and in others...

My fiance & I stayed at Illusion Boutique Hotel four three nights and were pleasantly surprised. The location was amazing as we were steps from the beach, steps from 5th Avenue & few blocks from the ferry to Cozumel. The staff was amazing, our rooms were spotless and cleaned thoroughly daily and the morning coffee to die for. If you...

What a perfect little hotel. Spotless clean spacious room. Great location between the beach and 5 th avenue. The breakfast, in the cosy restaurant downstairs, was simple but easy to upgrade. The front desk offered exceptional service and there were always room for some good advice on how to spend our days or just a smile and a chat. Overall...

We were actually next door and in Playa for our 25th Wedding Anniv. If not for the Solea Restaurant (part of Illusion Hotel), our stay would have been very disappointing. Dionicio went out of his way to make our anniversary dinner something to remember and HE SUCCEEDED. We had a very romantic candlelight dinner on the roof under the stars....

Wonderful location/attractive/ nice rooms/priced right/a helpful front desk staff. The only down side is the continental "breakfast" that we skipped after the first morning. The orange juice is canned, the toast cold and the coffee undrinkable. Try one of the reasonably priced breakfasts on the street instead.

Fantastic hotel with a great staff that really makes you feel at home. Great location 100 m from the beach and 100 m from the mainstreet with all the shops and restaurants.

This was my second time staying at the Illusion---my significant other has been here several times---and it was wonderful. The staff tremendous and the management outstanding. Loved the location. The beach is just out the door and down the street in one direction and out the door in the other direction puts you in the heart of all the fun....

I really enjoyed the staff and the location - quiet, close to the beach, but not on the beach. We easily became friends with the folks working there, and enjoyed the wading pool with view of the Carribean. The price was great - we had come to Playa with only one night booked, and spent all of our time at...
