My husband and I stayed in room 407 October 10-12, 2012. We were in Cancun for a couple of days before heading to Playa del Carmen. The purpose of our trip was to celebrate my birthday and our fifth wedding anniversary.
We chose this property because of the boutique style and location to beach and shops. Fellow reviewers seemed happy with their choice in Avalon Baccara. Yes it is old and some of it's shine has worn off over the years. They are certainly trying to keep the charm and old world feel. You just need to remember this is NOT the Ritz! Put your high expectations away and enjoy the simpler and beautiful things in this property!
The room was huge! Very clean and had all the amenities we could need. The wonderful staff greeted us with smiles and helpful information regarding the area. They had even fixed up some towel swans and a bottle of wine with a note of congratulations for our anniversary which we saw when first entering our room! So very kind of them!
The views from our two balconies were superb! One facing the lagoon and the other facing the Caribbean sea. Also a jacuzzi tub on the sea facing balcony.
The issue of no elevator may be hindering for some but the bellman was great to carry our bags to the room. I think we counted around 68 steps from street level to our room on the fourth floor! We didn't mind! A little exercise is good for you!
The staff stored our luggage at check out until we were ready to leave and gave us towels to use at the beautiful pool. We hung out there for a couple hours until our transportation to Playa arrived.
There are a couple of tiny mexican food places on the street level below the hotel that served pretty good tacos! Nothing fancy but good simple mexican food! Much better than paying an arm and leg for Hooters, Hard Rock, Margaritaville, etc...
